Greater Life seeks to base all of our beliefs and lifestyle on explicit passages of the Bible and biblical principles. Based on Scripture, we believe the following:
About the Bible: The Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living (2 Timothy 3:15-17).
About God: There is one God (Deuteronomy 6:4 ). He is the Creator of heaven and earth, and of all living beings. He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father, in His Son – Jesus Christ and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man (Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; 1 Timothy 3:16).
About Sin and Salvation: Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ (Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9).
About the Gospel: The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried and rose again. We obey the gospel (2 Thessalonians 1:8; 1 Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial) and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurrection) with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues (1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4).
About Christian Living: As Christians, we are to love God and others. We endeavor to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with love, mercy and compassion. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today (Mark 12:28-31; Mark 16:15; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; 1 Corinthians 12:8-10).
