John 7:17 "If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or whether I speak on My own authority." "Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God."
Here are the core beliefs at Calvary Victoria
1In the verbal inspiration and inerrancy of the Holy Bible (2 Timothy 3:16). 2In the existence of one true God who has revealed Himself to this world as the Father, as the Son and as the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19). 3In the Savior of men, the Lord Jesus Christ, conceived of the Holy Spirit born of the virgin Mary, very God and very Man (Luke 1:30-35; John 1:18). 4In the creation and fall of man, as recorded in Genesis; his total spiritual depravity and inability to attain to divine righteousness (Romans 5:12, 18). 5In the Gospel of the Grace of God, how that Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again bodily the third day for our justification (Romans 4:25; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4). 6In the salvation of sinners by Grace alone, through faith in the perfect and sufficient work of Christ on our behalf upon the Cross of Calvary excluding all human merit (Romans 5:1; Ephesians 2:8, 9). 7In water baptism of believers by immersion in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19). 8In the filling of the Holy Spirit as evidenced by the fruit of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2, Galatians 5). 9In the gifts of the Spirit as shown in Scripture, being used and practiced as described in the New Testament for the glory of God. 10In the Lord's supper, as a memorial for believers (1 Corinthians 11:23-32). 11In the healing of the body, as the Lord so wills (Matthew 8, James 5:14). 12In the eternal life of the believer and the eternal punishment of the unbeliever (John 5:24, 10:28, Revelation 20:10-15). 13In the reality and personality of Satan and demons (Job 1:7, Matthew 10:8). 14In the reality of Holy angels (Psalms 91:11; Hebrews 1:14). 15In the bodily ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ to Heaven, His enthronement and His personal return for His church and His return to rule and reign (Luke 24:51; 1 and 2 Thessalonians).
