LWC's Tenets Of Faith

We believe:
  1. That the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God’s Holy Spirit, are inerrant in the original writings, are the Word of God, and the final authority in all matters of life and death.

  2. In one God, the Creator of man and all things, eternally existing in three Persons: The Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost.

  3. That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary.

  4. That man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but spiritual death as well, that is separation from God; and that Adams sin is imputed to the whole of mankind.

  5. In the bodily crucifixion, death, burial and resurrection from the dead of the Lord Jesus. In His ascension into Heaven, and that He is the Head of the Church, Lord of the individual believer, High Priest over the House of God, and today is at the Right Hand of God as Savior, Intercessor and Advocate.

  6. That Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe on and accept Him as Savior are freely justified before God by His blood, are spiritually regenerated and become born again.

  7. That this justification, regeneration and new birth are only available through faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.

  8. That God is the Heavenly Father of those who trust in His Son, Jesus Christ, and that only those saved through faith in Christ receive eternal life in Gods kingdom.

  9. In water baptism by immersion, and all who accept Jesus as Savior should be baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

  10. That holiness is to be the standard of living for Gods people and that sanctification is an ongoing process, through faith in the blood of Jesus, the Word of God and the power of the Holy Ghost.

  11. That the baptism of the Holy Ghost is for every believer, subsequent to salvation, with speaking in tongues being the initial accompanying evidence of being baptized, and that the gifts of the Spirit are for the Church today.

  12. That divine healing is provided for all in the atonement of Christ.

  13. In the partaking of the Lords Supper as an ordinance of the Church. That the physical elements of the fruit of the vine and bread are to be observed in remembrance of the shed blood and the body of Christ, proclaiming His death on the Cross.

  14. In the personal, pre-millennial Second Coming of Jesus Christ. First to resurrect the dead in Christ and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air. Second, to establish His earthly kingdom and reign as King over all nations for a thousand years.

  15. In eternal life in the kingdom of God for those who are saved; and eternal punishment in the Lake of Fire, for those who are unsaved.
