What We Believe
God– He is the one true God, the Supreme Being, eternally existing in three Persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God has created all things and has revealed Himself to humanity in the Holy Bible. God is Sovereign in absolutely everything and works out everything according to the counsel of His will (Eph. 1:11).
Jesus– Being completely sinless He is God, the second person of the Trinity (John 1:1-18, Matt. 3:13-17) and God’s awaited Messiah. Jesus is the ultimate fulfillment of the Old Testament prophet, priest, and king offices. In Christ, all these offices are fulfilled (Hebrews 1:1-4). There is no other source of Salvation but through Jesus Himself (John 14:6).
The Holy Bible– We believe that the Bible is the infallible and inspired work of God written through human agents. We believe the Bible to be 100% accurate and truthful in pertaining to what it says about God, Jesus, the human condition, salvation, and many more issues. We believe that there is no compromising when it comes to the truth that is presented in the Scriptures. The Bible is God’s Holy word in which we learn about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Human Condition before God– Humans, in their natural state, are at enmity with God (James 4:4). Being at enmity with God means that the Human race has done something to warrant this enmity, namely sin which is outright rebellion against God’s law. It is because of sin that we are enemies of God in our natural state; we are born into sin (Rom. 5). As a result, all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Rom. 3:23). In order for Humans to deal with this issue, reconciliation is needed between man and God through Christ.
Salvation– Salvation comes through the hearing of the preached word known as the gospel (Rom. 10:13-17). What exactly is the gospel? Gospel is the good news of Jesus Christ. Jesus was born into this world being the only person to be completely sinless and lived a life according to God’s law perfectly. Jesus, being sinless, lived the life that all men should live and died the death on the cross that all sinful people deserve. As a result God the Father calls those to salvation by the work of Jesus and by the application of salvation from the Holy Spirit. Salvation is from the Lord only (Eph. 2:1-3, Rom. 3:9-18, John 3:1-8, Eph. 2:8-10).
Mission– The Blessed Rebellion exists to show the glory and beauty of Jesus Christ. We seek to show complete and objective truth and we believe that truth to be taught in the Holy Bible. We are here for your benefit to provide as many readers as we can with the truth and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to take captive every thought that presents itself against the knowledge of Jesus Christ (2 Cor. 10:5).
