Grace Ministries Bible College (GMBC) 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, adopts these fundamental Tenets of Faith and Doctrine.

1)      The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to man, the living, infallible, and everlasting rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason.

(II Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Peter 1:23-25; Hebrews 4:12)

2)      The triune Godhead is comprised of three 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. (John 1:1-5, 10-14; Matthew 28:18-20)

3)      Man was created good and upright, for God said, “Let us make 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 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21)

4)      Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ (Romans 3:24; John 3:3). On the cross Jesus Christ became sin and sickness, providing both salvation and divine healing for all mankind (Psalm 103:3), being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. For by grace we are saved through faith (Ephesians 2:8). “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 has 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.” (Rom. 10:8)

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

6)      The Lord’s Supper, symbolic of His shed blood and crucified body, should be a regular practice of all those who profess Jesus as Savior. (1 Corinthians 11:24-28)

7)      All Believers are entitled to, and should ardently expect and earnestly seek, the promise of the Father, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-5; Acts 2:38) 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. (Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31) This wonderful experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth. (Acts 2:38; 10:44-46; 11:14-16)

8)      The full consummation of the Baptism of Believers in the Holy Spirit is evidenced by the initial physical act of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and by the subsequent manifestation of spiritual power in public testimony and service. (Acts 2:4; 10:44-46; 19:2, 6; 1:8)

9)      The church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of the great commission. Each Believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the general assembly and church of the first born, whose names are written in Heaven. (Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23)

10)    Total prosperity: Spiritual (3 John 2; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21); Mental (2 Timothy 1:7; Romans 12:2; Isaiah 26:3); Physical (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24); Financial (2 Corinthians 8:9, 9:8); Social (Proverbs 3:4; Luke 2:52; Esther 2:15)

11)    Jesus is coming again to gather all His saints to ever be with Him (1 Cor. 15:51-52; 1 Thess. 4:16-17)

12)    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 is not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, shall be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake of fire. (Revelation 19:20; 20:10-15)

13)    The Scriptures promise the return of our Lord Jesus Christ with His saints from Heaven to rule and reign for one thousand years on earth. (2 Thessalonians 1:7; Revelation 19:11-16; 20:1-6) After this, there shall be a new heaven and a new earth. (Revelation 21)
