Statement of Faith

WE BELIEVE the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible authoritative Word of God.

WE BELIEVE there is only one God eternally manifested in the person of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

WE BELIEVE in the  virgin birth of Jesus Christ, in His vicarious and atoning sacrifice through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension and in His future personal return in power and glory upon earth.

WE BELIEVE that the five-fold ministry as written in Ephesians 4:11-12 is for today.

WE BELIEVE that God has called Midwest Christian Center to be a healing center – not just physically , but emotionally and spiritually as well.

WE BELIEVE in the excellence of love as written in I Corinthians 13; “Love Never Fails.” Love is the perfect bond of unity.

WE BELIEVE that mercy is God’s supply system for every need everywhere.

WE BELIEVE in the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit in I Corinthians 12.

Man exercised his God given ability and chose to disobey God.  This is sin.
According to the bible sin is:
1.  Missing the mark, a failure to be what God created you to be.
2.  A deliberate choosing to do what is wrong – rebellion against God.
3.  A condition in which you are separated from God.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

“But God proved His love toward us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 5:8
Although Christ died for all men, why aren’t all men Christians?
Every man must make a personal response – by faith.

By faith you receive Jesus Christ.  You can invite Him into your life.
“But as many as received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.” John 1:12

Once Christ comes into your life He wants to be your Lord and master and give meaning and real purpose to your life.  He can do this only as you allow Him to.
“And He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and rose again.” II Corinthians 5:15
For this very reason, Christ died and returned to live so that He might be the Lord.” Romans 14:9

If you want to receive Christ, you can pray this prayer.  Remember that becoming a real Christian is not just saying the words, but receiving the person – – Jesus Christ.

“Dear Lord, I know that I have done wrong. I am willing to turn from my sins.  I believe that Jesus Christ died for me.  Please come into my life and forgive me of my sins.  I receive you into my life as Savior and Lord. Amen.”
