What We Believe
Our Beliefs & Values
The members of Unshakable Ministries believe the Bible, the whole Bible, and nothing but the Bible to be our infallible rule of faith and practice, and we feel our responsibility is to make known the divine message of the Bible, present the following items as a statement of those basic truths taught in the Bible which are common to our Christian faith and practice:
The One True God
The Lord Jesus Christ
The Holy Spirit
One true Church, the body and the bride of Christ (Eph. 1:22-23; 5:25-32), composed of all true believers of the present age (I Cor. 12:12-13); and the organization of its members in local churches for worship, for edification of believers, and for world-wide gospel witness, each local church being autonomous but cooperating in fellowship and work (Eph. 4:11-16).
The Christian Life
A life of righteousness, good works and separation unto God from the evil ways of the world (Rom 12:1- 2), manifested by speaking the truth (James 5:12), maintaining the sanctity of the home (Eph. 5:22-6:4) settling differences between Christians in accordance with the Word of God (I Cor. 6:1-8), not engaging in carnal strife but showing a Christ-like attitude toward all men (Rom. 12:7-21), exhibiting the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23), and maintaining a life of prayer (Eph. 6:18; Phil. 4:6), including the privilege, when sick, of calling for the elders of the church to pray and to anoint with oil in the name of the Lord (James 5:13-18).
The Christian should observe the ordinances of our Lord Jesus Christ, which are:
(1) baptism of believers by triune immersion (Matt. 28:19), and
(2) the threefold communion service, consisting of the washing of the saint’s feet (John 13:1-17), the Lord’s Supper (I Cor. 11:20-22, 33-34; Jude 12), and the communion of the bread and the cup (I Cor. 11:23-26).
The conscious existence of the dead (Phil. 1:21-23; Luke 16:19-31), the resurrection of the body (John 5:28-29), the judgment and reward of believers (Rom. 14:10-12; II Cor. 5:10), the judgment and condemnation of unbelievers (Rev. 20:11-15), the eternal life of the saved (John 3:16), and the eternal punishment of the lost (Matt. 25:46; Rev. 20:15).
