Amazing Glory Ministries, a ministry for all people, is founded on the truths taught in God's Word that He is the only true and living God, creator of the heavens and the earth and all things therein. That the Bible is the inspired Word of God, an infallible revelation from God to man and the infallible rule of faith and conduct. (2 Tim. 3:16-17)
To touch the world by sharing the Love of Christ through the Word of God, inspired by a love for God and compassion for people. (John 3:16; Deuteronomy 6:4-5; Ephesians 4:32)
We Believe: In one God who has revealed himself as the eternally "I AM", existing in three persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Exodus 3:14; Matthew 28:19; 1 John 5)
That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father; conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary. That Jesus Christ was baptized of John, crucified on Calvary, buried and raised from the dead, exalted to the throne at the right hand of the Father, and is today the only Intercessor between God and man (1 Tim. 3:16)
That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God, standing in need of redemption, and that repentance is commanded of God for all and necessary for the forgiveness of sins, which is obtained through the new birth by faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, bringing forgiveness of sins and a life of holiness and purity, separated from the world, God's standard of living for His people.
That the life of Christ will bloom in fruitful works in the life of a true believer. That God expects believers to live a life of obedient surrender to Him. That God has a perfect, divine plan for the life of each believer, and that His will is revealed to the believer in His Word.
(Ephesians 2:8-10; John 14:21; Acts 5:32; Proverbs 3:5-6; Romans 8:28)
