Our purpose in stating these basic beliefs is to establish a Godly and Spiritual foundation for those choosing to Affiliate and come into a Covenant Membership with TNOJCI, and to show evidence that we Submit to the Authority of Christ which is the Head of the Church, and the Head of this Covenant Body of Christ, that All men may know that No Man is above the Godhead in this Sacred Covenant Body.
(A) We believe in the inspiration of the Holy Bible, which is comprised of the Old & New Testaments as originally given, not excluding the Apocrypha which was originally in the 1611 KJV. The Scriptures in there original language are without error and the sole and final authority for all matters of faith and conduct. (II Timothy 3:16, I Corinthians 2:13, II Peter 1:21).
(B) We believe in the Eternal Yahweh God who has revealed Himself as One God existing in three persons, God The Father, God The Son and God The Holy Spirit, distinguishable but indivisible (1 Timothy 3:16, Matthew 28:19, II Corinthians 13:14, 1 Peter 1:2, John 14:26 ).
(C) We believe in the creation, test, and fall of man as recorded in Genesis, his total spiritual depravity and inability to attain to Divine righteousness on his own (Romans 5:12, 18).
(D) We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of men, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, totally God and totally Man ( Luke 1:26-35, John 1:14-18, Isaiah 7:14, 9:6, Phil. 2:6, Rom. 9:5, Col. 2:9).
(E) We believe the Lord Jesus Christ gave His life on the cross as a sacrifice for our sin, was buried, and rose again bodily the third day, and personally appeared to His disciples (I Corinthians 15:1-4, Romans 4:25)
(F) We believe in the bodily ascension of Jesus to heaven, His exaltation, and personal, literal, and bodily coming again the second time for His Church (John 14:2-3, I Thessalonians 4:13-18).
(G) We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith in the perfect and complete work of Jesus on the Cross by which we obtain total forgiveness of sin. (Ephesians 2:8-9, Hebrews 9:12, 22, Romans 5:11).
(H) We believe that water baptism and communion are open only to those who have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior. These ordinances are observed in obedience to our Lord Jesus Christ as acts of love and devotion and are not considered to be necessary for salvation (Matthew 28:19, Acts 2:34-36, 19:1-6, I Corinthians 11:17-28).
(I) We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ, and that He is our abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide. We believe in the present day ministry of the Holy Spirit as recorded throughout the New Testament, including the exercise of all the Biblical gifts of the Holy Spirit in the church (Romans 8:9, I Corinthians 6:19, 12,14).
(J) We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as a real experience, subsequent to salvation, empowering believers as witnesses of Christ (Luke 24:49, Acts 1:4-5, 2:1-4, 8:14-17, 10:44-46).
(K) We believe believers should live life in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Savior and Lord, their reputation, or the church. There should be a rejection of, and turning from sinful pleasures and practices (Romans 12: 1-2, Ephesians 5:18, II Corinthians 6:14, 7:1, I John 2:15-17, II John 9-11).
(L) We believe in the reality and personality of Lucifer the fallen angel and that he is the declared enemy of God and man. We further believe that while a Believer can be tempted by Lucifer, a Believer cannot be demon possessed (Matthew 25:41, II Corinthians 6:14-18, 7:1).
(M) We believe in eternal life for believers (John 5:24, 3:16), and eternal punishment and separation from God for unbelievers (Mark 9:43-48, II Thessalonians 1:9, Revelation 20:10-15).
(N) We believe there is one Church, which was the Church established by Jesus Christ, made up of genuine followers of the way all over the world. The church is under the leadership of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, not controlled by outside groups or influences (Acts 15:22, Matthew 16:18, 18:15-20).
(O) We believe God The Father, has ordained and created all authority consisting of three basic institutions: 1) the home, 2) the church, and 3) the state. Every person is subject to these authorities, but all (including the authorities themselves) are answerable to God (Ephesians 5:22-24, Hebrews 13:17, I Peter 2:13-14).
(P) We believe that God The Father,has commanded that no sexual activity should be engaged in, outside of a God-ordained marriage between a man and a woman. We believe that any form of homosexuality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography are sinful perversions of God’s gift of sex (Genesis 2:24, 19:5-13, 26:8-9, Leviticus 18:1-30, Romans 1:26-29, I Corinthians 5:1, 6:9, I Thessalonians 4:1-8, Hebrews 13:4).
(Q) We believe human life begins at conception and the unborn child is a living human being. Abortion constitutes the unjustified taking of unborn human life. Abortion is murder. We reject any teaching that abortion due to rape, incest, birth defects, gender selection, birth or population control not are acceptable (Job 3:16, Psalms 51:5, 139:14-16, Isaiah 44:24, 49:1, Luke 1:44).
(R) We believe that every Believer, as a steward of the wealth entrusted to him, should give cheerfully to the support of the church in Seed Sowing for the relief of those in need and the spread of the Gospel (Genesis 14:20, Proverbs 3:9-10, Acts 4:34-37, I Corinthians 16:2, II Corinthians 9:6-7, Galatians 6:6, Ephesians 4:28, I Timothy 5:17-18, I John 3:17).
(S) We believe worship is given solely for God’s Glory and honor. Our response to God in worship, though sometimes emotional, will flow out of our sincere relationship with God (Deuteronomy. 5:6-10, John 12:3-8, Romans 1:20-23, Romans 12:1-8).
