Brisbane, Qld, Australia
A short summery of what we believe in at JCS&H.
JCS&H Brisbane (Jesus Christ Saves & Heals). We are a non-denominational, Pentecostal, Full gospel and word of Faith church.
We believe that the King James version of the Bible is the most accurate and the most trustworthy and the closest to the original manuscript.
We believe we are saved by Grace through Faith in Jesus Christ. (Eph. 2:8) That means we have to repent fully of our sins and turn around and start to walk with God and His ways.
Jesus said we must be born again to enter the Kingdom of God. John 3: 3- 7.
We have to forgive all men who have sinned against us and release their sins. John 20:23. Mark 11:24,25. Matt.6: 12, 14,15
We also have to believe in Christ Jesus and His redemptive work. Through believing, which is releasing our faith (The ability God has given every man to believe God with. Rom 12:3) and trust in Gods promises, power and the divine mission of Christ God imputes righteousness to us as He did to Abraham. Rom. 4: 3. 2 Cor. 5: 21, so He can come in and dwell in us as He promised. John 14: 16,17, 21, 23.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the only way to God and believing in Him is the command God has given men to obey.
We also believe the words of Christ who said if we believe in Him we should and can do what He did. John 14: 12. Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8) and we believe He has called every believer to do the same. Matt. 10:1 Jesus told the disciples He gave them power over ALL demons to cast them out and to heal ALL manner of sickness and ALL manner of diseases. (In Luke 9 :1 Jesus says to cure All diseases).
We believe destroying the works of the devil is essentially dealing with sin and it´s consequences and restoring man unto fellowship with God. Doing the will of God is a requirement if we are to inherit the Kingdom of God and go to Heaven. Matt. 7:21. Learning to destroy the works of the devil and do that would be destroying the enemy of God which is the highest priority and will of God.
We also believe that the most important issue under the old covenant was to obey God and His word and His law. The same issue is current in the New Covenant (New Testament) time. And obedience to God and His word and His Son Jesus Christ is the highest form of worship.
We also believe that the Bible clearly teaches us that the O/C was a covenant of death and condemnation and of theology (letter) (2 Cor. 3: 5-9) and that the N/C is a covenant based on grace or under the heading of grace and consists of: Faith and love and righteousness and spirit and forgiveness. (Eph. 2:8. Rom.4:3. John 3:16. 2 Cor. 5:21. Rom. 8:6,7. Col.1:13-15).
We also believe in the great commission of Jesus Christ where He says: And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, (Matt. 28:18-20) All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen
The great commission is to teach about the Kingdom of God just like Jesus did so men can know about the Kingdom of God and decide to repent and be saved and follow Christ. Men know about the kingdoms of this world but little to nothing about the Kingdom of God. Matt. 4:23-24.
