Doctrines Taught at WBC
- John 3:16
For God so loved the world of sinners that He gave, as a sacrifice for its sins, His only begotten Son, who is very God and very man; that whoever believes in Him should not perish (in hell) but have everlasting life, God's life, by the Holy Spirit the moment he believes.
- 1 Corinthians 15:3,4
Briefly, the "good news" is that Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, that He was buried, and that on the third day He arose from the dead according to the scriptures. The scriptures are what men wrote, as led by the Holy Spirit, and what is contained in what is called the New Testament and the Old Testament.
- John 5:28,29
The hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth, those who have done good, (because the Holy Spirit in them empowers them to do good works) to the resurrection of life and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.
- Acts 11:26 & 1 Corinthians 1:12,13
Believers were first called Christians in Antioch because they were continually speaking of Christ. The most common name for Christians is brethren because they were born of the Holy Spirit into the God's family. Also the name believers is used twice in the New Testament. Otherwise, we are warned against taking any other name.
- Ephesians 1:22,23 & Ephesians 2:20,21
Jesus Christ, and He alone, is the head over all things to His church, and the church, that is all believers, is His body. There is the local church, such as this church in Ephesus, and there is the church universal made of all believers from Pentecost until now, living and dead.
- 1 Timothy 3:1-13
Some brethren in the local church have leadership qualifications and are called in the Bible overseers or elders or shepherds. The overseers are those who teach, guide, visit in homes, guard the believers from false teachers, and lead by example. Other brethren called deacons, also must have qualifications to care for the building, the disbursement of funds, and the physical needs of the believers.
- Acts 2:38-42
There are two ordinances: baptism and the Lord's supper or the breaking of bread. Both are only for believers. Baptism pictures the believer's death, burial and resurrection with Jesus Christ. Romans 6:2-4. When the brethren gather together as a local church, they should continue steadfastly in the apostle's doctrine as recorded in the New Testament and in fellowship and in breaking of bread and in prayers.
- Revelation 19 and 20
After His coming for the church, He will judge the works of every believer to see if there were done in the power of the Holy Spirit and for God's glory. Believers will be rewarded according to the quality of their works. Afterwards, there will be the marriage of Jesus Christ to His bride, the church. Later He will return to the earth as "King of kings and Lord of lords" to deliver His people, the Jews, from the armies of the Beast and the False Prophet about to take Jerusalem, slaying the enemy soldiers and capturing the Beast and the False Prophet and casting them alive into the Lake of Fire. Jesus Christ then establishes the Kingdom of God on earth and rules for 1,000 years. At the end of this time, Satan who has been imprisoned during these 1000 years will be released and immediately leads the unbelievers born during this period in rebellion against Christ and the holy city, Jerusalem. Fire from heaven will consume the rebels and Satan will be cast alive into the Lake of Fire. Then, at the Great White Throne, Jesus Christ will judge all unbelievers by the things recorded about them in His books. All will see the justice of God in casting them into hell or the Lake of Fire forever and forever.
- 2 Peter 3:9
God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
