The Bible reveals there is only One True God. He is the Father who created all things, the Son who robed Himself in flesh and came to earth to redeem fallen man and the Holy Ghost who lives in the heart of His people. The Biblical titles Father, Son and Holy Ghost refer to three manifestations or distinctly different ways in which God expresses Himself.
There are three steps to complete Christian conversion as plainly described in Acts 2:38
1. Repentance -- confessing and forsaking sin and calling on the Lord Jesus for salvation;
2. Water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission (cleansing) of sins.
The word "baptism" means complete immersion in water (Acts 8:38).
3. Receiving the Holy Ghost, which is always verified by the speaking in other tongues.
During His earthly ministry, Jesus Christ "went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil." (Acts 10:38). The Lord Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever (Heb. 13:8). He still heals all who will call upon Him in faith, humility and obedience. In the church age the prayer of faith still saves (or heals) the sick (James 5:15).
A Christian should grow spiritually through faithful attendance of church, supporting the work of God in tithes and offerings, regular Bible study and developing a regular prayer life. Spiritual growth includes holiness and separation from the world.
We believe in the Great Commission, that we are to be spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Sanctuary of Houston is a church body that seeks to follow the way of Jesus Christ, to be a Apostolic, and to love our neighbors.
