Our Beliefs

Seminary Beliefs

Global Impact Bible College & Seminary accepts the scriptures as the revealed Will of God, the all sufficient rule of faith and practice, and for the purpose of maintaining general unity, and therefore, adopts these Statements of Fundamental Truths and Doctrine.

The Scriptures Inspired.  The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to man, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason. (II Tim. 3:15-17; I Peter 1:23-25; Hebrew 4:12).

The One True Godhead.   The triune Godhead is comprised of 3 separate and distinct personalities, The Father, The  Son, and The Holy Spirit, who are eternally self-existent, self-revealed and function as one entity.  Jesus Christ, who is God manifested in the flesh, is the second member of the Godhead, co-equal and co-eternal with The Father and The Holy Spirit.

Man, His Fall and Redemption.  Man was created good and upright, for God said, “let Us makes man in Our image, after Our likeness”.  But, man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ The Son of God.  (Genesis 1:26-312, 3:1-7; John 14:6; Romans 5:12-21).

 The Salvation of Man.

          (a)    Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.  On the cross Jesus Christ became sin and sickness providing both salvation and divine healing for all mankind (Psalms 103:3) being justified freely by his Grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.  For by grace we are saved through faith.  “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart; that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved, for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.”  (Romans 3:24; Ephesians 2:8; Romans 10:8-10).

            (b)         The Evidence of Salvation.  The inward evidence to the believer of his salvation, is the direct witness of the Spirit (Romans 8:16).  The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness.  “And this is His commandment, that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us.”  (I John 3:23).

             (c)          Faith and Works.  Salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ alone, and not by human works, however, our works will determine the rewards in eternity (Romans 10:9-10 and II Cor. 5:10).

Baptism in Water.  The ordinance of baptism by a burial with Christ should be observed as commanded in the Scriptures by all who have really repented and in their hearts have truly believed on Christ as Savior and Lord.  In so doing, they declare to the world that their flesh has been "crucified" with Jesus and that they have also been raised with Him to walk in newness of life.  (Matthew. 28:19; Acts 10:47, 48; Romans 6:4).

 The Lord’s Supper  “And when He had given thanks, He broke it, and said, ‘This is my body which is broken for you.  Do this in remembrance of me.’ In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.’   Let a man examine himself, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup” (I Cor. 11:24, 25, 28).

The Promise of the Father.   All believers are entitled to, and should ardently expect and earnestly seek, the promise of the Father, the Baptism in The Holy Spirit, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ.  This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian church.  With it, comes the endowment of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry.  (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; I Cor. 12:1-31).  This wonderful experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth (Acts 2:38; 10:44-45; 11:14-16; 15:7-9).

The Church.  The church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission.

 Total Prosperity of the Believer.

(a)   Spiritual  John 3:3, 11; II Cor. 5:17-21; Romans 10:9-10.

(b)   Mental  II Tim 1:7; Romans 12:2; Isaiah 26:3.

(c)   Physical Isaiah 53:4, 5; Matt. 8:17; I Peter 2:24.

(d)   Financial 3 John 1:2; Mal 3:10-11; Luke 6:38; II Cor 9:6-19; Deut 28:1-14

(e)   Social  Proverbs 3:4.

Blessed Hope.  Jesus is coming again to gather all His Saints to ever be with Him (I Cor. 15:51-52; I Thess. 4:16-17; and II Thess. 2:1).

The Millennial Reign of Jesus.  The return of our Lord Jesus Christ with His saints from Heaven to rule and reign for one thousand years on earth as the Scriptures promised.  (Rom. 11:25, 27; II Thess. 1:7; Rev. 19:11-16; 20:1-7). 

The Lake of Fire.  Those who have not accepted the redemptive work of Jesus Christ will suffer eternal separation from the Godhead.  The devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, and anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life, shall be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake of fire which burns with brimstone.  This is the second death, the lake of fire (Rev. 19:20; 20:10-15).

The New Heaven and New Earth.  Upon completion of all evil being removed, God restores (renews) the Universe to its original perfect state, and God Himself dwells with His faithful people for all eternity.  (Acts 3:21; Revelation 21:1-5
