Douglas Renton Ministries -  Celebrating 26 years of spreading The Word of God
1 John 5
 
 
Faith in the Son of God
 
 
1 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has become a child of God. And everyone who loves the Father loves his children, too.
2 We know we love God’s children if we love God and obey his commandments.
3 Loving God means keeping his commandments, and his commandments are not burdensome.
4 For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith.
5 And who can win this battle against the world?
Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.

Belief Statement
 
   
We Believe  -
 
 
In one God, existing in three forms - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  
 
The Bible is the unchanging words of God given supernaturally from God to the writers of the Bible; it is absolute truth and is of final authority in all things.
 
Jesus Christ was born of Mary, a virgin, who was made pregnant by the Holy Spirit. Jesus is God in a human body. He led a sinless life, and died for our sins to satisfy God's judgement. He was raised from the dead by the power of God's Holy Spirit so we could have new life. He is now seated at the right hand of God, in the spiritual realm of Heaven, as our mediator with God.
 
That everyone faces the judgement of God, either at death or when Jesus returns to earth. If you have already accepted Jesus as your Saviour, your sins are forgiven, and you have new eternal life. You will spend eternity in Heaven in the loving presence of God.
    
That Jesus is coming back soon to earth, to judge the living and the dead, and to set up His new Kingdom.
 
In holy Christian living and that we must have concern for the hurts and social needs of all people.
We must dedicate ourselves anew to the service of God and to His authority over our lives.
 
That it is the duty of every Christian to spread the Good News of  Jesus Christ using every modern means of communication available to them.
 
In the 'five-fold ministry' as explained in the Bible in Ephesians 4:11-13 and that each ministry is exercised today by Christians with these spiritual gifts.

GOD LOVES YOU 
AND HAS AN AMAZING PLAN 
FOR YOUR LIFE.
 
No matter what you have done in the past, or what you are involved in now, He loves you and wants to help you.
He can forgive every sin and wipe away every tear, and give you a brand new start in life. He specialises in difficult and hopeless situations. They are not a problem for Him.
If you want to become a Christian and have a new start in life, 
pray this - 
 
 
“Oh God,
I am a sinner.  I am sorry for my sins.  I want to turn from my sins. 
I believe that Jesus Christ is your Son. I believe that He died on the cross as punishment for my sin. I believe He rose from the dead to new life and that I can have this new life by believing in Him.
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus. Cleanse me  from my sin and give me new eternal life. 
I give You control of my life and I want to follow You in the fellowship of Your church. 
Amen” 
 
 
If you pray this, God will make you a Christian by cleansing you of your sin and granting you eternal life.
