What We Believe

World Kingdom Dominion Ministries is a non-denominational Christian leadership training and economic development center which embraces the following statements concerning the truth.

 

The Bible is our all-sufficient rule for faith. This statement of fundamental truths is intended as a basis of fellowship among us. No claim is made that we have arrived at all biblical truth. However, we are persuaded that this statement is consistent with the Holy Scriptures. (Luke 1:1)

 

We believe the Bible to be the sufficient, infallible, revealed word of God, written by Holy men under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. (II Tim 3:15)

 

We believe that the Scripture teaches that there is only one true and living God, who is self-existent, the eternal “I AM,” the Creator of heaven and earth, the Redeemer of man, who reveals Himself as the “Triune” God, three Persons, yet one God, namely, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Luke 3:22; Deut 6:4; I John 5:7)

 

We believe that man is sinful in nature because of the fall of Adam and Eve and thus in need of redemption. (Gen 1:26-31; John 6:44; Romans 5:12-21)We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God and the Son of man, was born miraculously of the Virgin Mary, and that He came to save man from condemnation of sin through His death. His blood serves as an atonement for sin and salvation is thus available by faith in Jesus Christ. (John 3:16; Rom 10:9)We believe that Jesus Christ lived a sinless life, was resurrected from the dead and is seated at the right hand of the Father. ( Matt 28:6; Acts 1:9)

 

We believe that salvation of lost and sinful man through regeneration or re-birth by the Holy Spirit is necessary for eternal life. (Luke 7:50; Rom 10:13-15; I Cor 1:18)

 

We believe the Holy Spirit is an intelligent being, a distinct Person of the Trinity, and that the works of God such as creation, inspiration of the scriptures and sanctification are ascribed by the Holy Scriptures as the work of the Holy Spirit. (Gen 1:2; John 16:8; Acts 7:51; Eph 4:30; I Peter 3:18)

 

We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is able to live a holy life. (Rom 8:5; I Thes 4:3; I John 2:29)We believe that there are three baptisms required in the body of Christ.

 

First, there is the baptism whereby the repentant sinner, upon receiving Jesus as Lord, is baptized into the Body of Christ. (I Cor 12:13)

 

Secondly, there is water baptism by immersion for believers which symbolizes the death and resurrection of Christ. (Rom 6:3-6)

 

Thirdly, there is the Baptism or infilling of the Holy Spirit, freely given to believers who ask for it, with “speaking in tongues” as one of the evidences of this baptism (Joel 2:28; Acts 2:4 Acts 2:38; Acts 8:16-17; Acts 10:44-46)

 

We believe that sanctification is an act of separation from evil and dedication unto God. (Rom 12:1-2)We believe that all who experience the new birth in Christ are covenant fellowship partners of the Body of Christ and that the local Church is divinely chosen by God to further His work here on earth.

 

We believe in unity of the believers in working together to further the gospel through evangelism, missions, and benevolence. (Matt 16:16; John 17:21; Eph 1:20; Col 3:14)

 

We believe the Church is to be taught and led by the apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers in accordance with I Pet 2:5,9; Eph 4:11-13.

 

We believe that those we are chosen by God to do a specific work should be recognized by appointment and ordination to the work. (Mark 3:13-15; I Chron 9:22; Titus 1:5; I Tim 2:7)

 

We believe in divine healing or deliverance from sickness as well as the total prosperity of the believer as a promise from God. (John3:3,11; 3 John 2; Mal 3:10; Deut 28:1-14; Is 53:4-5)

 

We believe it is the responsibility of every believer to bring tithes, offering and alms to support the work of God. These are outward expressions of the unity of the church in supporting the work of the Lord. (Mal 3:8-10; I Cor 16:2; Gen 28:22; Matt 23:23)

 

We believe that the body of Christ is commissioned to feed the hungry, care for the poor, care for the widows and orphans, and to visit the prisoners or those in bondage. (Matt 25:34-40; Isa 58:7-8; James 1:27)

 

We believe that the power or anointing can be transmitted from one person to the other by laying on of hands. Num 8:10-11, 27:22-23 (Levitical Priests) Mark 10:13-16 (Jesus to disciples)We believe that, in obedience to the Holy Spirit, we should lay hands on no man suddenly, but that the laying on of hands confirms a ministry which is already observable and has been proven ( I Tim 5:22)

 

We believe that all mankind is subject to death of the body as a result of original sin; the soul and spirit do not die but will endure eternal life or eternal death. (Roms 5:12; Phil 1:23)

 

We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved; the saved resurrected to eternal life and the lost without Christ to everlasting damnation. (Matt 24:31; Acts 24:15)

 

We believe in the imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, including the rapture of the saints, followed by the visible return of Christ with His saints to reign on earth for one thousand years (Matt 24:27; Rev 1:7) This millennial reign will bring salvation to the nation of Israel (Ez 37:21-22; Rom 11:26-17) and the establishment of universal peace (Is 11:6-7). (Acts 1:11; I Thes 4:13-18)We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing for the human mind, spirit and body. (Is 53:4; James 5:14; I Pet 2:24)

 

We believe that at death the spirits of believers pass immediately into His presence and remain there in conscious bliss until the resurrection of the body at the rapture. Soul and body will then unite and be with God in eternal glory. At death, the unsaved spirits remain in misery until the Great White Throne judgment when soul and body reunited shall be cast into the lake of fire forever. (Luke 16:19-26; II Cor 5:8; Phil 1:23; II Thes 1:7-8; Rev 20:11-15)We believe that there will be a new heaven and a new earth wherein will dwell righteousness forever. II Peter 3:13; Rev 21:22)
