Believer’s Institute For  Biblical Studies “to be used of God” Doctrinal Statement
We Believe: ...that the Bible, all sixty-six books of it, is the inspired, preserved Word of God. The Bible is a supernaturally given revelation without error or misstatement in moral and spiritual teachings, and is a record of historical facts.  We only use the King James Bible. ...in the Trinity. We believe the eternal God manifests Himself in three persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. And that those three are one God, but separate in personality and work. ...in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious death, atonement through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal and visible return in power and glory. ...man was created in the image of God, and that he was tempted by Satan and fell. Because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary for salvation. ...in the Holy Spirit. He is the third person of the Trinity. Though omnipresent from all eternity, He took up His abode in the world in a special sense on the Day of Pentecost according to the divine promise. He dwells in every believer, and the gifts of the Spirit and the fruit of the Spirit in the lives of believers are visible demonstrations of His presence. ...in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and lost. ...those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. ...that God’s plan for this age as expressed in the Great Commission involves the evangelization of the world through the witness of every believer in Jesus Christ. The making of disciples through the teaching of His Word in the local church is the means of accomplishing His purpose. ...that although women may be greatly used of God in many areas of christian service, they are not Biblically qualified for the pulpit ministry. They are strictly forbidden to teach or usurp authority over men (see 1 Timothy 2:12). A preacher not only preaches but teaches and is in authority over the congregation.
