Join in with us as we praise God together in spirit and in truth. The doctrinal views of Maranatha reflect most of the beliefs of the Holiness-Pentecostal movement, with the exception of the "second work of grace," the historic doctrine of the Trinity, and the traditional Trinitarian formula in water baptism.
It embraces the Pentecostal view that speaking in tongues is the initial sign of receiving the Holy Spirit. Pentecostals hold a fundamental view of the Bible: "The Bible is the only God-given authority which man possesses; therefore all doctrine, faith, hope, and all instructions for the church must be based upon and harmonize with the Bible" Manual of the United Pentecostal Church, The Bible is the Word of God, and therefore inerrant and infallible.
Pentecostals rejects all extrabiblical revelations and writings, and views church creeds and articles of faith only as the thinking of men. Pentecostals hold that salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, not by works. Faith in Jesus is the means by which a person is justified. At the same time, a sinner must believe the gospel; he is commanded to repent of his sinful life, to be baptized in water in the name of Jesus Christ, and to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit Acts ; ; ; ; The Bible is the inspired word of God, giving a true history of the creation of heaven, earth, and humanity, and containing a correct prophecy of the ages to come regarding heaven, earth, and the destiny of humanity.
Moreover, there is no salvation outside of what is taught in its pages. There is only one God Deuteronomy He is the creator of heaven and earth, and of all living beings. God is a Spirit John He is the Eternal One, the Creator of all things, and the Father of all humanity by creation. There was no God formed before Him; neither shall be there any after Him Isaiah Jesus is the Christ Matthew ; the creator of all things Colossians ; God with us Matthew ; God made flesh John ; God manifested in the flesh I Timothy ; He which was, which is, and which is to come, the Almighty Revelation ; the mighty God, everlasting Father, and Prince of peace Isaiah It took shedding of blood for the remission of the sins of the world Hebrews , but God the Father was a Spirit and had no blood to shed.
Thus He prepared a body of flesh and blood Hebrews and came to earth as a man in order to save us, for in Isaiah He said, "Beside me there is no Saviour. The Holy Ghost comes to dwell in the hearts and lives of everyone who believes and obeys the gospel, as the comforter, Sustainer, and keeper John ; Romans Sin is the transgression of the law, or commandments of God I John The guilt of sin has fallen upon all humanity from Adam until now Romans The wages of sin is eternal death Romans ; Revelation to all those who refuse to accept salvation as set forth in the Word of God.
Salvation consists of deliverance from all sin and unrighteousness through the blood of Jesus Christ.

The New Testament experience of salvation consists of repentance from sin, water baptism in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost, after which the Christian is to live a godly life Acts Water baptism is an essential part of New Testament salvation and not merely a symbolic ritual.
It is part of entering into the kingdom of God God's church, the bride of Christ , and therefore, it is not merely a part of local church membership. See John ; Galatians Water baptism is to be administered only by immersion. Paul said, "We are buried with him [Jesus Christ] by baptism Romans ; see Colossians , Jesus came up "out of the water" Mark , and Philip and the eunuch went down "into the water" and came up "out of the water" Acts Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection are applied to our lives when we experience New Testament salvation: "Repent [death to sin], and be baptized [burial] every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost [resurrection].
Sprinkling, pouring, or infant baptism of any kind cannot be substantiated by the Word of God, but are only human traditions.

The name in which baptism is administered is vitally important, and this name is Jesus. Jesus' last command to His disciples was, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost" Matthew We should notice that He said name singular not names. As previously explained, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are not names of separate persons, but titles of positions held by God.
An angelic announcement revealed God's saving name in the New Testament: "She shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins" Matthew The apostles understood that Jesus was the name to use at baptism, and from the day that the church of God was established the Day of Pentecost until the end of their ministry, they baptized all nations Jews - Acts ; Gentiles - Acts in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
In fact, Jesus is the only name given for our salvation. The baptism of the Holy Ghost is the birth of the Spirit John This spiritual baptism is necessary to put someone into the kingdom of God God's church, the bride of Christ and is evidenced by speaking in other tongues other languages as the Spirit of God gives utterance.
Speaking in tongues means speaking miraculously in a language unknown to the speaker, as the Spirit gives utterance. Tongues can be classified in two ways, according to function: 1 speaking in other tongues as the initial evidence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost and 2 the gift of tongues as mentioned in I Corinthians. After we are saved from sin, we are commanded, "Go, and sin no more" John We are commanded to live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world Titus and warned that without holiness no one shall see the Lord Hebrews We must present ourselves as holy unto God Romans , cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit II Corinthians , and separate ourselves from all worldliness James If the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
I Peter No one can live a holy life by his own power, but only through the Holy Spirit. God has made Himself known through the ages by miraculous healings and has made special privisions in the age of grace to heal all who will come to Him in faith and obedience. Divine healing was purchased for us by the blood of Jesus Christ, especially by His stripes Isaiah ; Matthew ; I Peter Jesus went everywhere healing those who were sick Matthew , and He commanded His disciples to do the same Matthew He said concerning those who believe the gospel, "They shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover" Mark Mighty healings and miracles followed the disciples wherever the gospel was preached.
There is no sickness or disease too hard for God.

Any of us, our children, or our friends can be healed by the power of God. Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed" James Jesus Christ is coming back to earth in bodily form, just as He went away Acts He will catch away a holy people His bride, His church who have accepted redemption through His blood, by birth of water and of the Spirit, and who are found faithful when He comes.
