STATEMENT OF FAITH
TEAM Ministries International solemnly declares that: We Believe . . .
THE SCRIPTURES: The BIBLE
(Old and New Testament) is the inspired WORD of God, written by Holy Men under the influence of the Holy Spirit. It is infallible and our standard GUIDE for basic Christian doctrine.
(2 Tim. 3:16, 1 Thess. 2:13, 2 Peter 1:20-21).
There is one God infinitely wise and perfect, creator of ALL things; manifested in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
(Phil. 2:6, John 1:14, John 15:26, 1 John 5:7, Deuteronomy 6:4).
MAN, HIS FALL AND REDEMPTION
Man was created in the image of God, but fell from grace through disobedience. Therefore sin and death came into the world.
(Rom. 3:10; 3:23 & 1 Jn. 1:10).
Jesus Christ, the son of God came to redeem and restore man back to God through His death and blood.
(Romans 5:14, Romans. 10:9, 1 John. 3:8, Ephesians 2: 8-10).
THE NEW BIRTH AND ETERNAL LIFE
The New Birth is the product of salvation (through godly sorrow) which is necessary for eternal life.
(John 3:3-5, 2 Corinthians 7:10, 1 John. 5:12).
Water baptism is by immersion and a direct command from the Lord. It is only for Believers who identify with Christ, in His death burial and resurrection.
(Matthew 28:19, Romans 6:4, Colossians 2:12, Acts 8:36-39).
BAPTISM IN THE HOLY GHOST
This is a gift from God, as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all Believers.
(Acts 1:8, Matthew 3:11, Acts 2:38-39, Acts 2:4 & Acts 19:1-7).
We believe in sanctification through the Word of God, by the Holy Spirit made possible by the progressive work of Grace.
(1 Corinthians 1:30, Romans 6:1-2, Hebrews 12:14, Titus 2:11-14, 1 Thessalonians 5:23).
Divine healing is the privilege of every Believer, by the awesome power of God through faith.
(Exodus 15:6, James 5:14-15, Mark 16:8, Matthew 8:17, Isaiah 53:4-5).
DIVINE FAVOR AND BREAKTHROUGHS
We believe that God wants Believers to prosper in every spectrum of life.
(Genesis 12:1-3, 3 John 2 & Ephesians 1:3, Zechariah 1:17).
RESURRECTION OF THE JUST AND THE RETURN OF JESUS
We believe in the resurrection of the just and the return of Jesus Christ.
(Acts 1:11, 1 Thess. 4:16-17).
We believe that marriage is a sacred union ordained by God, between a man and a woman for the purpose of procreation, help, companionship and the propagation of the human race. Marriage represents the union between Christ and the church. Therefore it should be respected and honored.
(Genesis 2:22-25, Hebrews 13:4 & 1 Corinthians 7:2-6).
HELL AND ETERNITY
We believe in the existence of hell and eternal life.
(Hebrews 9:27, Revelation 21:1-8, Psalm 9:17).
We believe that the true church of God is composed of people (from different parts of the world, race, tribe or class) who are saved by faith through Jesus Christ, transformed by the word, regenerated by the Holy Spirit and united in one BODY“with Jesus as the Head.
KINGS AND PRIESTS
We believe that we (Believers) are a nation of kings and priests with a divine mandate to RULE on earth and reveal the mysteries of God.
(Genesis 1:26, Colossians 1:25-28, 1 Peter 2:9 & Revelation 1:6).
We believe that the Lord supper is a sacred memorial ordinance, which symbolizes the death and sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ for the benefit of ALL Believers.
(1 Corinthians 11:23-32).
