WELCOME TO EMMANUEL THE GREAT PROVIDER! Grace Christian Assembly is the Church located here in 987 Rambutan St., Cogeo Gate II, Antipolo City We are just a small group here because we are just starting the ministry.
MISSION STATEMENT Grace Christian Assembly's primary goal is to lift up the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. To win souls to the Lord to add to His Church.We seek to put everything under the authority of God.
FUNDAMENTAL BELIEFS We believe that our doctrinal understanding must be rooted in the Bible so that our follower must not follow for what we called BLIND FOLLOWING. We encourage each members to study the Bible. Grace Christian Assembly considers the freedom of thought under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The following beliefs are not intended to be exhaustive but it is our expression of the common faith we held that derived from the Bible itself. Below is the Doctrine and general rules of the GRACE CHRISTIAN ASSEMBLY and we believe them to be in accordance to the teachings of God's Word and therefore for the good of our souls and for the Glory of God. GOD We believe God to be the CREATOR of the universe, all knowing, all powerful, and omnipotent that exist in THREE co-equal, co-powerful and co-eternal, FATHER, SON, and HOLY SPIRIT. God made a covenant and promise to mankind that He will gives us opportunity for us to know Him.
Gen. 1:1; Col.1:16-17; Exodus 20:11; Nehemiah 9:6; Hebrews 1:10
JESUS CHRIST We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is GOD-MAN meaning He comes Himself from God and dwelt in the life and likeness of man. He is the Savior, Lord, Messiah, also He is called to be the coming King. He is born of the Virgin Mary, conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Matt. 2:3-6; Luke 2:11; John 1:41; John 14:6; I Cor. 5:7; Hebrews 13:6; John 19:36
HOLY SPIRIT We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Godhead to be the Comforter of the Believers and is the seal of the redeemed.He empowers the believers in the New Testament time. Acts 1:8; John 14:15-21; I John 2:27; Romans 8:9
SALVATION We believe that salvation is the unmerited favor (GRACE) of the Lord and is received by willing party through FAITH and REPENTANCE. We believe also that after one believes and accepted the Lord Jesus Christ He should obey Him faithfully. Eph. 2:8-9 I John 2:4; Exodus 20:1-18
HELL We believe that Hell is the place of eternal punishment of those who willfully reject the truth. We believe further that those people who will be thrown into hell will be burn and turn into ashes. Mal. 4: 1-3 ; 2 Thess 2:8-9 Rev. 20: 14
LAW We believe that the TEN COMMANDMENT Law should be enforced and be obeyed in the Christian for today..It is the moral conduct of each individual who comes to the Lord Jesus.The Lord promises blessings for those who faithfully obey the commandment of the Lord. (I John 2:4; John 14:15; Deut. 28:1-14) BAPTISM We believe that baptism is essential in matters of obedience to the full righteousness of God. baptism is the picture of our salvation and in observing it we portray the death, burial, resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.We believe baptism in immersion. (Matt. 2:6; 13-16, Acts 8:38-39)
SABBATH We believe that the SABBATH rest in the Old Testament written in Genesis 2:1-3 should be enforced today. Sabbath is the Memorial of God's creating power. In the New Testament, Sabbath is the Memorial of God's redeeming power..The redeemed should therefore gather and worship God during His appointed day of rest to recognize His creating and redeeming power.We believe that the Sabbath of the Bible, the SEVENTH DAY of the week, is sacred time, a gift of God to all people, instituted at creation, affirmed in the Ten Commandments and reaffirmed in the teaching an example of our Lord Jesus and His Apostles. We believe that in obedience to God and in loving response to His Grace, the Sabbath should be faithfully observed as a day of rest, worship, and celebration (Genesis 2:1-3 ; Exodus 20: 8-11)
OBEDIENCE We believe that Christians will live a life of obedience since we are now become God's children. The person who says he knows God, and does not obey His commandment is a Liar.. ( I John 2:4; Eph. 2:10)
MANKIND We believe that mankind was created in the image of God and is therefore the noblest work of creation. We believe that human beings have moral responsibility and are created to enjoy both divine and human fellowship as children of God.
Gen. 1:26-27; Psalm 8:3-9; Micah 6:8; Matt. 5:44-48; I John 1:3; John 1:12
ETERNAL LIFE We believe that eternal life begins in knowing God through a commitment to Jesus. We believe that because He died and rose again, resurrection with spiritual and imperishable bodies is the gift of God to those who believe.
I Cor. 15:3-4; 20-23; John 14:1-3; Matt. 24:30; Titus 2:13; John 17:3; I John 5:11-13; I Cor. 15:42-44; John 10:27-28; John 6:40
THE CHURCH The Church is all people who believes and come to the full knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, of which is the Head. The Local Church is the assembly of the called-out-ones organized in a covenant relationship for worship, fellowship and service, practicing and proclaiming common convictions while growing in the grace and knowledge of our Savior Jesus Christ. BAPTIST CHRISTIAN ASSEMBLY believes in the priesthood of all believers and practice the autonomy of the Local Church.
LORD'S SUPPER We believe that the Lord's Supper commemorates the suffering and death of our Redeemer until He comes, it is the symbol of our union with Christ and it is also a pledged of a renewed allegiance to our risen Lord.
Mark 14:22-25; Matt. 26:26-29; I Cor. 10:16-17; 11:23-30
DIET We believe that our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, then it is our duty to keep our body in good order so that the Lord will be glorified and magnified. We believe in the dietary Decalogue which is written specifically in Leviticus 11. GRACE CHRISTIAN ASSEMBLY holds this belief that there are certain foods in the Bible that should not be eaten under any circumstances that's why we forbid our followers to eat them even in any occasions ANGELS We believe that Angels are created beings called ministering spirits, endowed with free will. The holy Angels serve God as messengers and agents, are appointed to attend to those who obtain salvation, and will accompany Christ in His return. The disobedient angels are called demons.
Rev. 1:1; 22:6 Heb. 1:14; Matt. 25:31
JUSTIFICATION We believe that justification is God's gracious act of pronouncing a believer righteous in His sight. It is dependent upon repentance and is made possible through faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ and acceptance of Him as Lord and Savior.
Rom. 3:20; 24:31; 4:1-8; 5:1, 9; Gal. 2:16
SANCTIFICATION Sanctification is a biblical doctrine that is emphasized a great deal in Christian teaching. Yet despite its importance, it is often perceived as a religious notion too complex to comprehend. Though sanctification may at first seem to be a foreign concept, it is one of the greatest things that has and is happening to every believer in Jesus Christ. Here we will explore the basic biblical doctrine of sanctification and discuss the key role it plays in a Christian's spiritual growth.
Sanctification comes from the verb sanctify. Sanctify originates from the Greek word hagiazo,which means to be "separate" or to be "set apart." In the Bible, sanctification generally relates to a sovereign act of God whereby He "sets apart" a person, place, or thing in order that His purposes may be accomplished. In the book of Exodus, God sanctifies a place of worship. "And there I will meet with the children of Israel, and the tabernacle shall be sanctified by My glory," says Exodus 29:43. Even a day can be sanctified as seen in Genesis 2:3 where the seventh day is "set apart" as a holy day of rest. "Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made."
SECOND COMING OF JESUS One only has to read a newspaper or listen to a newscast in order to see Bible prophecy being fulfilled. There have been more prophecies fulfilled in the twentieth century than in any other time in church history. We believe there is a great reason for this. We believe that the time is rapidly approaching for the Lord Jesus Christ to return to this earth and take the kingdoms of this world for Himself. In this tract, we will attempt to show you from God's word the chronological order of future prophetic events. That is, we will attempt to TEACH you some basic Bible doctrine about the Second Coming. It is our prayer that you will read carefully through these pages, asking the Holy Spirit of God to lead and guide you through the truths in His word (Jhn. 16:13). Please check all Scripture references very carefully for a better understanding. May God richly bless your study.
When his disciples asked Jesus, “...what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” (Matt. 24:3), he did not leave them clueless, but proceeded to list many evidences which would be indications of his second coming. The word “coming” in Matthew 24:3 is a misleading translation of the Greek word “parousia” — para, meaning beside or along side of, and ousia, a form of the verb “to be.” The thought is to be beside another or in their presence. When the roll is called in the schools of Greece, the proper response to one’s name being called is to reply “Parousia,” that is, “Present.” Therefore, the Scripture would be more properly translated: “…what shall be the sign of thy presence…?”
The second part of the disciples’ question was, “What shall be the sign…of the end of the world?” The Greek word for world is “aion” and means age. Therefore, Jesus’ answer would indicate the conclusion of the time period in which he would return. Proper translations are critical because mistranslations lead to false expectations. For example, many Christians have the impression that the literal end of the world is coming at Christ’s return. This contradicts the thought that “the earth abideth forever.” (Eccl. 1:4) How comforting to know that Jesus was not referring to the end of the world, but the end of the Gospel age.
