OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH
Action Chapel Baltimore is called, ordained, and anointed by God to bring the body of Christ into a prosperous relationship with the Godhead: FATHER, SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT. (Genesis 1:26)
THE WORD: The Bible is given by the inspiration of God and is the only sufficient, certain, and authoritative rule of all-saving knowledge, faith, and obedience.(II Tim 3:16, Ps 119:9-11, Hebrews 4:12)
GOD: There is one God revealed to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each with distinct attributes. To God alone do all creatures owe the highest reverence, love, and obedience. (Ex 20: 1-6, Matt 28: 19, II Corinthians 13:14)
JESUS: Jesus Christ is the Son and is divinely appointed as mediator between God and man.He died, was buried, arose on the third day, ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God interceding for us. (I Tim 2:5, Rom 8:34)
HOLY SPIRIT: The indwelling of the Holy Spirit is vital for understanding the Word, for power to witness, and for spiritual fruit in the life of the believer. (Gal 5:22, Acts 4:31, John 16:13-14, John 7:37, Acts 19:1-6)
SALVATION: Regeneration is a change of heart by the Holy Spirit to a life of holiness, freely given by repentance and acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. (Titus 3:5)
BAPTISM: Water baptism by immersion is an ordinance of the church, obligatory upon every believer. (I Peter 3:20b22, Mark 16: 16) Infants and children may be dedicated to the Lord, but they will not be baptized in water.
FRUITFULNESS: The continual practice of the spiritual disciplines (prayer, fasting, Bible Study, and worship) is necessary for Christian growth and fruitfulness. (Co I 4:2, Josh 1:8, 11 Tim 2:15)
THE LOCAL CHURCH: Each believer must be committed to a local assembly for spiritual oversight, accountability, and participation.(Hebrews 10:24)
THE CHRISTIAN LIFESTYLE: The Christian lifestyle is one of holiness. It requires putting to death the old sinful and worldly nature and putting on the holy and godly nature of the new man on a daily basis. (Heb 12:14, Colossians 3:4-6, Rom 1: 26-27, Gal 5: 16- 26).
