Midwest Schools CONSIDERS THE FOLLOWING TRUTHS to be fundamental to an understanding of our relationship to the ONE TRUE AND LIVING GOD.
THE SCRIPTURES INSPIRED The Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the inspired Word of God. The Bible is the infallible authority for faith and conduct.
ONE TRUE GOD The One True God is the eternally self-existent “I AM,” the Creator of the universe. He has further revealed Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST The Lord Jesus is 100% divine (Son of God) while simultaneously being 100% human (Son of Man). As God Incarnate, He is the express image of the Living God in human form.
ORIGINAL SIN & THE FALL OF MAN Man was created good and upright in the image and likeness of God. The first man, Adam, through disobedience, fell from the grace of God and, thus, sin and death entered into the world. Adam’s transgression incurred not only physical death for man, but also spiritual death which is eternal separation from God. Man’s propensity to sin because of his sinful nature necessitates salvation from the power of sin and a Savior to provide that salvation.
SALVATION OF MAN Man’s only hope of redemption and salvation from sin is through the shed Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. His blood is completely sufficient to deliver every person from the power and penalty of sin.
THE CHURCH & ITS MISSION The Church is the Body of Christ and is comprised of all believers. God inhabits the Body of Christ by the Holy Ghost both individually and corporately. Since God’s purpose concerning man is to seek and to save that which is lost, to be worshiped by man, and to build a body of believers in the image of His Son, the Church’s responsibility is: (1) to evangelize the world, (2)to be a corporate body in which man may worship and glorify God, and (3) to equip the saints for the work of service.
BAPTISM IN WATER Baptism by immersion in water is commanded in the Scriptures. All who repent of their sins and believe in Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized.
HOLY COMMUNION The Lord’s Supper, consisting of bread and a cup of the fruit of the vine, is a memorial of Jesus’ suffering and death and a celebration of His resurrection to be enjoyed by all believers until He comes again.
BAPTISM OF THE HOLY GHOST The baptism of believers in the Holy Ghost is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Holy Ghost gives utterance. This experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth, and is a seconded defiant work of grace. With the baptism of the Holy Ghost comes the enduing of power for life and service and the bestowing of spiritual gifts.
DIVINE HEALING Divine healing is provided for in both Old and New Testaments and is integral to the Gospel.
THE SECOND ADVENT OF CHRIST & THE FINAL JUDGMENT As the climax to God’s dealing with man, Jesus is coming again. At that time, there will be a resurrection of the righteous and the wicked. The wicked will be judged and the righteous will be ushered into the everlasting Kingdom of God.
