"Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. 2 Corinthians 7:1 ... dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."
I am a retired pastor of
the Church of God (Tennessee).
My name is Isaac Livingston. I am from Neyyoor India.
Jesus Christ has built his Church with such people that should be saved. He told his disciples to teach his commandments to Churches for them to obey. But most churches do not follow his doctrine. They declare their own faith and beliefs to show their doctrine. As a pastor, I also declare the Bible doctrines as my doctrine. "Faith and Beliefs" differ from church to church. Theologians write doctrines. Doctrines are not biblical truth, but they appear to have come from scripture. Doctrines serve religion, but not God. It deceives people. My faith and beliefs are scripture truth and they do not contradict Bible. If you find any contradiction in my declaration with scriptures, write it to me (mail box below) and, if I have contradicted scriptures, I will stand corrected. But, if they are scriptural, then you should have no problem to adopt them as your own. I give scripture references and explanation for every belief, at the links in the 'Lesson'. Thank you.
|We declare these Scripture Truth as our Faith and Beliefs||Explanation|
God has fully inspired the Old and the New Testament Scriptures. But modern versions are man made.
The three Persons "Father, Son, and Holy Ghost" exist in one Omni-Power Spirit, who is Eternal God.

|18||Born of the Spirit, Born of the Word, and Born of God, are different levels in the Born Again process.||>||Lesson 18|
Baptism and filled with the Holy Ghost are ordination with gifts and power, from God for his ministry.
|20||In Holy Ghost baptism, even rebellious get gifts. Tongues alone is not an evidence, since it is imitated.||>||Lesson 20|
