Arrows of Christ Core Beliefs
Salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins. Essentially this gift of grace is God’s unmerited favor granted to us when we exercise true faith and repentance (Joh 1:12, Eph 1:7, Eph 2:8-10, 1 Pet 1:18-19, Eph 2: 8-9, Tit 3:5, Act 17:30-31, Act 20:20-21).
The name of Jesus is the sweetest and most lovely name in the universe because it is the creator's name - who made everything beautiful in His time (Ecc 3:11)! His creation is still exceedingly beautiful, aside from man's corruptions of it, and so Jesus must necessarily be the coalescence of all beauty - and so His wonderful name conveys the excellence and eminence of all beauty. Doctrinally, every individual Christian within the church body is privileged to breathe every 'utterance' and to do every 'deed' we do in the precious name of JESUS CHRIST (Col 3:17). Finally, we are saved in Jesus' name (Act 4:12), we're baptized in Jesus' name (Mat 28:19), we preach in Jesus' name (Luk 24:47), and we gather in Jesus' Name (Mat 18:20).
Our biggest faith-building tool is the inerrant Word which serves as our final authority for all matters of faith and practice (Psa 12:6-7). The Old and New Testaments are the verbally and plenary-inspired Word of God. The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible, and God-breathed, and are the complete, and divine revelation of God to Man. The Scriptures have three senses (which are of no private interpretation): 1., literal, 2., figurative, and 3., spiritual; and every part of the Bible is written explicitly to either the Jews, the Gentiles, and/or the church of God (1 Cor 10:32). As such, the Textus Receptus translated into the King James Version of the Bible shall be the official and only translation used by Arrows of Christ (2 Tim 3:16-17, 2 Pet 1:20 ).
God has given the church a great commission to proclaim the Gospel to all nations so that there might be a great multitude from every nation, tribe, ethnic group, and language group who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. As ambassadors of Christ, we must use all available means to go to the foreign nations and not wait for them to come to us (Mat 28:19-20, Mar 16:15, Luk 24:46-48, Joh 20:21; Act 1:8, 2 Cor 5:20).
