Doctrinal Statement:

 

Know all ye people by these words - That the First Emmanuel Church Of The Web:

  • The First Emmanuel Church Of The Web is a nondenominational church; without opinion for others’ wealth, social status, race, gender, or national origin, and is founded on the belief:

o       That the Bible is God's Holy Word and that it is the absolute authority in all matters of faith, the duties and personal conduct of mankind to both God and their fellow mankind.

o       That the Holy Bible is the living word of God, in that it contains God’s directions for mankind’s salvation while allowing people the ability to think and prosper in their own knowledge and enjoy the bounty of life so graciously given by our Lord.

o       The Holy Bible also gives us guidance for our faith, words to guide use during times of sorrow, joy, and everyday life.

 

        The First Emmanuel Church Of The Web does not support or deny the doctrines of any Christian religion. Although we do have our own personal beliefs in the teaching of the Holy Bible, we do accept the rights of others to follow their own Christian doctrine.

 

  • We endeavor with our goal to promote regular fellowship in normal places of worship to include homes, groups, and social gatherings.

  • We promote Christian beliefs of Christ as set forth in the Holy Bible.

  • The First Emmanuel Church Of The Web is a Christian home based Church ministry using the Internet as a worldwide Gospel tool in fulfilling our mission to deliver the Word of God and Salvation through Jesus Christ

  • The Deity of Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, born as a man from a virgin named Mary for the soul purpose of dying for mankind’s sins. He came as the Messiah to give the true message of God in that “He that believeth in God shall not perish but shall have everlasting life”.

  • Resurrection: If in this life we keep faith in God and Christ then we shall also be resurrected in Heaven. This spiritual resurrection takes place when we hear the voice of God just like the Holy Spirit said: Rom 10:9 That if you shall confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. Rom 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that rose up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelled in you.
We Believe:
 

We Receive Christ Through Faith
"By grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast" (Ephesians 2:8,9).

 

By God’s own words unto Moses when Moses asked who he was and God replied, “I am that I am” speaks volumes that we as humans will never be able to fathom. All that we can do as true believer and teachers of God is to preach that the Lord God is who he is and that only by faith in him will you be resurrected in Heaven.

The Deity of Jesus Christ, Much has been written and counseled on the Deity of Christ and the one central idea that has passed through the ages is Jesus is of one substance with the Father and the Spirit; He shares in the divine essence and continued to through the incarnation. With this in mind we must accept that Jesus is a preexistent divine personal substance with two natures - a divine nature that added a human nature to His substance. Which allows Jesus to be a mediator in the full sense of revealing God himself because He is God.

Holy Trinity, has many meanings for many people. Even great scholars don’t always agree to the exact meaning. To some there is the belief that God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit are one and the same, which means that God himself died on the cross. Others believe that between God and man there was a mediator, Christ, bonded by the Holy Spirit. In 1 Timothy 2:5, Paul writes, 'For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.' Each of us here has a relationship with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit even though we may not completely agree on, or even understand, everything about the Holy Trinity. But we do know the basics: Jesus is of the same essence as the Father. That Jesus is of the same essence as the Father, it naturally follows from the biblical data that the Spirit is also of the same essence.

Resurrection, The Bible teaches the bodily resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, and that He ascended bodily into the heavens, and is now at the right hand of God as our Mediator, Priest and Advocate. Knowing that the doctrine of the resurrection is one of the fundamental teachings of God it is of maximum importance to study them and understand them. The word of God teaches us that: If in this life we keep faith in God and Christ then we shall also be resurrected in Heaven. This spiritual resurrection takes place when we hear the voice of God just like the Holy Spirit said: ROM 10:9 That if you shall confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. ROM 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelled in you.

Resurrection is simple as stated in " Romans 10:9, "If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved." If you truly believe and confess it you also will be filled with the Holly Spirit and be resurrected in heaven

Salvation, The Bible teaches that unless a man is born again he will not go to heaven, but will go to hell. A man must repent of his sins and believe on the Lord Jesus to be saved. Scriptures: John 3, Romans 10:13, Revelation 21:8. Basically salvation is the atonement of man’s fallowness and culpability. This follows from the gospel message. Romans 6:23 says, "All have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God."

A person may say he has not sinned, 1 John 1 says that you've called God a liar and you are still in your sins. He may not even feel guilty of certain things, but guilt is not a feeling. Guilt is a judicial reality. If we say that we have not sinned, then the truth is not in us and we call God a liar. Romans 11:32 says, "God has shut up all in disobedience that He might show mercy to all." Because of the gospel message, if you don't acknowledge the bad news, you can't make use of the good news. The bad news is that we have sinned and are guilty before God. Salvation is therefore the acceptance of your sins and receiving salvation by grace through faith.

Baptism, There are many thoughts on Baptism with some churches believing that you must be baptized with water or the immersed in water in the beginning as a sign of faith. In Acts 2:38 Peter says, "Repent, and let each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."

The actual baptism itself is man’s first step for atonement of his sins and acceptance of the Holy Spirit. Without repenting of their sins and accepting of faith in God they condemn by their own actions their soul to hell. Having water placed on you or being immersed is actually the outward sign to others that you have accepted the Holy Trinity and are filled with the Holy Spirit.

Jesus is the Messiah, Christ is the Greek word for Messiah and should be remembered that Messiah is roughly translated as God in flesh. You must believe that Jesus is the Messiah. If you repudiate such a notion, you cannot be saved. 1 John 2:22 says, "Who is the liar, but the one who denies that Jesus is the Messiah? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father, the one who confesses the Son has the Father."

1 John 4:2 says, "By this you know the Spirit of God, every spirit that confesses that Jesus Messiah has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God, and this is the spirit of antichrist." 2 John 7 says, "For many deceivers have gone out into the world. Those who do not acknowledge Jesus Messiah as coming in the flesh, this is the deceiver and the antichrist." 

It is clear, that if you can accept that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are one in the same in spirit and follow what Jesus said was the greatest commandment: Deu 6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. Then the Kingdom of Heaven will be opened to you. It really is, that simple, God ask so little and in return he gives so much
