Global Equippers affirms the following Statement of Faith


  1. The One True God – The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent I AM, the Creator of the universe and the Redeemer of mankind (Deut. 6:4; Ex. 3:14; Is. 43:10,11).  God has further revealed Himself as a triune Being manifested as Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Is. 48:16; Matt. 28:19; Luke 3:22).
  2. The Scriptures Inspired – The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct (II Tim. 3:15-17, I Thess. 2:13; II Pet. 1:21).
  3. The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ – The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God and as such shares in the divinity and deity of God (Matt. 1:23; Jn. 5:22-23; II Jn. 3; Heb. 1:1-13).
  4. Original Sin and the Fall of Man – Man was created good and upright, for God said, “…Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…” (Gen. 1:26).  The first man, Adam, through disobedience fell from the grace of God, and thus, sin entered into the world and death by sin.  Adam’s transgression incurred not only physical death for man but also spiritual death, which is eternal separation from God (Gen. 2:17; 3:6-24).  Man’s propensity to sin because of his sinful nature necessitates salvation from the power of sin and a Savior to provide that salvation (Rom. 5:17-21).
  5. The Salvation of Man – Man’s only hope of redemption and salvation from the power of sin is through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12; Rom. 5:8-13; 10:9; Jas. 1:21; Eph. 2:8).
  6. Christ the One Shepherd – Jesus Christ is the Good Shepherd (Jn. 10:11) and the Great Shepherd (Heb. 13:20).  There is only one spiritual shepherd referred to in the New Testament and Jesus Christ is that one (Jn. 10:16).
  7. The Church and Its Mission – The Church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Holy Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her Great Commission.  Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the general assembly and the Church of the firstborn, which was written in heaven (Eph. 1:22,23; 2:22; Heb. 12:23). Since God’s purpose concerning man is to seek and to save that which is lost, to be worshipped by man, and to build a body of believers in the image of His Son, the responsibility of the Church is:
    1. To be an agency of God for evangelizing the world (Acts 1:8; Matt. 28:19-20; Mk. 16:15-16).
    2. To be a corporate body in which man may worship God (I Cor. 12:13).
    3. To be a channel of God’s purpose to build a body of saints being perfected in the image of His Son (Eph. 4:11-16; I Cor. 12:28;14:12).
  8. The Ordinances of the Church –
    1. Baptism in Water – The ordinance of baptism by immersion in water is commanded in the Scriptures.  All who repent of their sins and believe in Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized.  This is a declaration to the world that they identify with Christ in His death and have been raised with Him in newness of life (Matt. 28:19; Mk. 16:16; Acts 10:47,48; Rom. 6:4).
    2. The Lord’s Supper of Holy Communion – The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements — the bread and the cup of the fruit of the vine — is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (II Pet. 1:4), a memorial of His suffering and death ( I Cor. 11:26), and a prophecy of His second coming (I Cor. 11:26) and is enjoined on all believers till He comes!
  9. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit – The baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance (Acts 2:4).  With the baptism in the Holy Spirit comes the endowment of power for life and service, the bestowing of the gifts or enabling of the Holy Spirit and their uses in the ministry of the body of Christ (Lk. 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; I Cor. 12:1-31).  This experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth (Acts 8:12-17; 10:44-46; 11:14,15; 15:7-9).
  10. Divine Healing – Divine healing was provided for all in the Old Testament (Ex. 15:22-26; Psa. 103:1-3; Isa. 53:4-5) and is an integral part of the Gospel (Matt. 8:16-17; Acts 5:16; Jas. 5:14-16).
  11. The Second Advent of Christ – The second coming of Christ includes the catching away of the church (I Thess. 4:16-17), followed by the actual, visible return of Christ with His saints (the church) to reign with Him on earth for one thousand years (Zech. 3:19,20; Rom. 11:26,27) and the establishment of universal peace(Isa. 11:6-9; Psa. 72:3-8; Mic. 4:3-4).
  12. The Final Judgment – There will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and will be judged according to their works.  Whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life, together with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, will be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death (Matt. 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Rev. 19:20; 20:11-15; 21:8).
  13. The New Heavens and the New Earth – “…We according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness”  (I Pet. 3:13; see also Rev. 21:1).
  14. The Redemption of Man – The redemption of man came by the Son of God becoming flesh and bearing our sins in His own body.  The sacrifice for sin was all God required of His Son and the blood is the sole basis by which God forgives and cleanses the sinner (Heb. 10:5; 10:19,20; I Pet. 1:18,19; 2:24).
