What we Believe
Milaca Alliance Church
Our Alliance family celebrates Jesus—the image of the invisible God, the Lord of all Creation!
“For in Christ, all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness.” Colossians 2:9-10
1 Cor. 1:30
Because of who He is and what He’s done, we are compelled to “go!” Humbled by the open invitation He extends to us—what we call the Great Commission—we join Him in His work to restore and reconcile lost and broken people to Himself.
Statement of Faith
THREE IN ONE
2.) Jesus Christ is the true God and the true man.(4) He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.(5) He died on the cross, the Just for the unjust,(6) as a substitutionary sacrifice,(7) and all who believe in Him are justified by His shed blood.(8) He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures.(9) He is now at the right hand of Majesty on hish as our great High Priest. (10) He will come again to establish His Kingdom, righteousness, and peace.(11)
(4) Phil. 2:6-11, (5) Luke 1:34-38, (6) 1 Pet. 3:18, (7) Heb. 2:9, (8) Rom. 5:9, (9) Acts 2:23-24, (10) Heb. 8:1, (11) Matt. 26:64
3.) The Holy Spirit is a Divine Person,(12) (sent to indwell, guide, teach, and empower the believer (13) and convince the world of sin, righteousness, and judgement.(14)
(12) John 14:15-18), (13) John 16:13, Acts 1:8, (14) John 16:7-11
SALVATION FOR ALL
4.) The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of all. The Scriptures constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.(15)
(15) 2 Pet. 1:20-21; 2 Tim. 3:15-16
5.) Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God: (16) he fell through disobedience, incurring physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature (17) are separated from life with God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ.(18) The fate of the unrepentant and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment;(19) an that of the believer, in everlasting joy and bliss.(20)
(16) Gen. 1:27, (17) Rom. 3:23, (18) 1 Cor. 15:20-23, (19) Rev 21:8, (20) Rev. 21:1-4
6.) Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; and those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become the children of God. (21)
(21) Titus 3:4-7
7.) It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit and be sanctified wholly,(22) being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service.(23) This is both a crisis and a progressive experience wrought in the life of the believer subsequent to conversion.(24)
(22) 1 Thess. 5:23, (23)
Lost people matter to God. He wants them found.
Prayer. Prayer is the primary work of God’s people.
Stewardship. Everything we have belongs to God. We are His stewards.
God’s Word. Knowing and obeying God’s Word is fundamental for all believers.
Empowered. Without the Holy Spirit’s empowerment, we can accomplish nothing.
Community. God has made all believers into a family. We are all different, we all have different interests and abilities, but we all have the same command from God to love one another and appreciate each other’s uniqueness. We use our differences to serve and bless one another.
