Kerala Brethren Assembly

We believe…

The Scriptures – ‘GOD breathe’

We believe in the Bible – the 66 books containing both the Old and New Testament, the ONLY inspired word of God. We also believe that the Scripture has been preserved and passed on to us by God, and are the Supreme authority on matters of faith and practice.

GOD

We believe in One God in Three Persons – Father, Son and the Holy Spirit, each a distinct Person, co-equal, co-eternal and of the same substance, each worthy of worship and adoration.

Jesus Christ our Saviour

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ the Son of God, begotten by the Holy Spirit, Born of Virgin Mary, who is perfect, Holy and sinless. His death on the cross was a vicarious sacrifice, and that he was buried, rose again and ascended to the Father, according to the Scriptures.

Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity. The very same God, co-existent with the Father and the Son, permanently indwelling the believer and is the Seal of salvation unto all eternity.

Creation

We believe that man is created in the image of God and is not a product of evolution. Because of sin, man incurred both physical and spiritual death.

Satan – The ‘Adversary’

We believe that Satan was perfect when God created him. But he rebelled against Him and became the adversary of God and His people. Satan has been judged and defeated at the cross and ultimate destruction awaits him at the second coming of Christ.

Salvation

We believe that all those who confess with their mouth and believe in their heart that Jesus Christ is Lord become children of God. We believe that all are saved by grace through faith and not by works. They are born of the Spirit from above. Salvation involves redemption, regeneration, sanctification and glorification. We also believe that Salvation is an act of God and the greatest gift to mankind.

Eternal Security

We believe in the eternal security of the believer. We believe the saved ones are Foreknown, Predestinated and Called by God, and the believer is kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation.

Second Coming of Lord Jesus Christ

We believe in the pre-millennial, pre-tribulational return of the Lord and the Rapture of the Church. Then the saints will be caught up with Him in the air in the twinkling of an eye. And then after seven years of the tribulation, Christ Himself will visibly descend with His saints to establish His millennial kingdom on the earth.

The priesthood of the believer in Christ

We believe in the priesthood of all believers and that they have direct access to God the Father through Jesus Christ the Son, who is the Great High Priest and the only mediator between the believer and the Father.

 

Providence from God

We believe in the providence of the Lord. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ upholds all things by the power of His word and He holds everything together.

The Lord’s Day

We believe that the first day of the week is Lord’s Day. We observe this day by breaking bread and worship and adoration.

The Local Church

We believe that the local church is a body of believers in a particular locality gathering unto the name of Christ for worship and witness. We believe in the autonomy of the Local Church. We believe that spiritual gifts have been given to every believer for the edification of the Body of Christ. Any Bureaucracy in form of hierarchies, committee, council, association or strategic bodies is against the wholesome design of the God’s own body – HIS church

Ordinances

We believe that the local church observes the two ordinances of Baptism and Lord’s Supper. We believe that all who have received Christ, as their personal Savior and Lord should be baptized in the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. We believe in baptism by immersion in water, which is a symbol of the likeness of His death, burial and resurrection, and that the Lord’s Supper should be observed in remembrance of Him to show forth His death for our sins until He comes again.

Church and State

We believe in the separation of Church and State. While God has ordained the existing governmental powers, we also believe that man’s highest authority is the Word of God and man is therefore free from any commandments of men that are in conflict with the Word of God.
