EIAM Beliefs

<p><img style=”float: left;” src=”images/_DSC2025.JPG” alt=”” />We believe that the holy bible is the authentic word of God, true, steadfast and authoritative rule of faith and practice (II Tim. 3:16-17; II Peter 1:21).</p>
<p>We believe in the divine trinity of the Godhead consisting of three distinct and separate persons in one: The Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. (John 17:3, II Cor. 13:14).</p>
<p>We believe that all men have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Salvation or the new birth comes through repentance from sin and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Jhn 3:3-8, Acts 20:20-21, Rom. 3:23, 5:12, 6:23).</p>
<p>We believe in water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit <br /> (Matt. 28:19-20).</p>
<p>We believe in the Lord’s Supper which is the regular partaking of unleavened bread, and the fruit of the vine; symbolic of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. (I Cor. 11:23-26).</p>
<p>We believe that every believer in the Lord Jesus Christ must live a holy life. (Matt. 5:48, Rom. 12:1-2, Heb 12:14).</p>
<p>We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as received by Apostles accompanied by speaking in tongues as the initial scriptural evidence subsequent to the new birth. (Acts 2:4, 38-39, 1:5-8, Mark 16:17).</p>
<p>We believe in the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ which will be as literal and visible as His Ascension; the Rapture of His Waiting Bride and His Millennia reign on the earth.(Acts 1:9-11, I Thess. 4:16-17, Rev. 20:1-3, Matt 24:40-44) .</p>
<p>We believe in the institution of marriage as God’s will between one man and one woman.  We believe that marriage is the most honourable contract on earth a person could enter into (Heb. 13:4) with its benefits, obligations and guiding principles clearly set out in the Holy Scriptures.</p>
