‘Missions’ is the Heartbeat of God, and it is the Heartbeat of House of Faith Ministries New Jersey and worldwide. HOFM is a Church that wants to see hope live in the hearts of man as we convey the greatest good news. When the blind has lost their way, we believe the gospel is the only source of light that can make the way clear. We believe there is only one message that will sustain us in the world we live in, and we will not rest until every ear has heard the message of Mercy, Grace, and Love as we reach the unreached for Jesus.
Inspiration of Scriptures
We believe in the verbal inspiration of the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments by the Holy Spirit as originally given: they are final authority for our faith and life. (2 Tim. 3:16 ; Heb. 4:12 )
We believe in one God revealed in three co-equal, distinct persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matt. 3:16-17 ; 28:19-20; Eph.2:18)
We believe that man in his natural state is a sinner, lost, undone, without hope and without God. (Eph. 2:1-2 ; Rom. 3 : 23)
Divinity and Humanity of Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God who by His incarnation and virgin birth took upon Himself the form of man and became the God-Man. In the one person of Christ, there are two natures, human and divine, each in its completeness and integrity. They are distinguishable but indivisible, so that He is fully man and fully God. He lived a sinless life and became the only sacrifice for the sins of the world. (Eph. 1:3-5; Rom. 5 1-11; 1 Pet 1 : 18-19)
We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Lk 24: 38-43; Jn 20: 24-29)
We believe that terms of salvation are repentance towards God for sin and a personal heart-felt faith in the Lord Jesus Christ which results in regeneration. This salvation is entirely by grace and not by works. (Eph. 2:6; Rom. 5:1; Acts 3:19-20, Ephesians 2:8-9) and that he may send Christ Jesus, who was ordained for you before.
We believe in the visible, bodily return of Christ to this earth to judge the world and to claim His Bride.
(1 Thess. 4:13-18; Rev. 1:7)
We believe that the church is Christ’s spiritual body on earth today. It consists of born-again believers and has both universal and local expressions. (Matt. 16:18; Acts 20:28)
Heaven and Hell
We believe in the doctrines of eternal punishment for the lost and eternal bliss and service for the saved. (Jn.14:1-3; Rev. 20:11-15)
We believe that Satan is a fallen, created being who is the “god of this world”. He and his well-organized company of demons are opposed to the Kingdom of God and work to defeat and destroy the believer. While his activity is real, Satan and his demon spirits were defeated and over-thrown by Christ’s victory at the cross. (Lk. 10:17-20; Col.2:13-15; Eph. 6:10-18)
We believe the Holy Spirit to be the third person of the Godhead who is active in the world today. The Spirit indwells and seals the believer at new birth. We believe the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a subsequent experience and is available to all Christian to empower us to be witnesses. We believe in, and encourage the use of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. (Jn. 14: 16-17; Acts 1 8 Acts 2 1:1-4)
We believe that believer’s water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances of the church. The believer’s water baptism occurs once; following this, the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper should be practiced regularly. (Acts 2:38 1 Cor 11:23-26)
