Jacksonville Theological Seminary and Revelation Message Bible College are inter-denominational
in nature; however, we hold to the following Articles of Faith:
I. The Holy Scriptures
We believe that the Holy Bible is the Word of the Living God; true, immutable,
steadfast, unchangeable, as it's author, the Lord Jehovah; that it was written by
Holy men of old as they were moved upon and inspired by the Holy Spirit.
II. The Eternal Godhead
We believe that there is but one true and Living God; maker of heaven and earth
and all that in them is; the Alpha and Omega, Who ever was, and is and shall be
without end; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three, equal in every
divine perfection, executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of
The Father - whose glory is so exceeding bright that mortal man cannot look upon
His face and live; but whose heart was so filled with love and pity for His lost and
sin-benighted children that He freely gave His only begotten Son to redeem and
reconcile them to Himself.
The Son - Co-existent and co-eternal with the Father, Who conceived by the
Holy Spirit and born of the virgin named Mary, took upon Himself the form of
man, bore our sins, carried our sorrows; and by the shedding of His precious blood
upon the cross of Calvary purchased redemption for all that would believe upon
Him; bursting the bonds of death and hell, rose from the grave and ascended on
high leading captivity captive, that as the Great Mediator betwixt God and man, He
might sit at the right hand of the Father making intersession for whom He laid
down His life.
The Holy Spirit - The third person of the Godhead, the Spirit of the Father
shed abroad, omnipotent, omnipresent, performing an inexpressible important
mission upon earth, convicting of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment, drawing
sinners to the Savior, rebuking, pleading, searching, comforting, guiding, quickening,
teaching, glorifying, baptizing, and enduing with power from on high, all who yield
to His tender ministries, preparing them for the great day of the Lord's appearing.
III. The Fall of Man
We believe that man was created in the image of God, before whom he walked in
holiness and purity; but that by voluntary disobedience and transgression, he fell
from the Eden of purity and innocence to the depths of sin and iniquity; and that in
consequence of this, all mankind are sinners sold unto Satan; sinners not by
coercion but by choice, shaped in iniquity and utterly void by nature of the holiness
required by the law of GOD, positively inclined to evil, guilty and without excuse,
justly deserving the condemnation of a just and Holy God.
IV. The Plan of Redemption
We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, the just for the unjust;
freely and by divine appointment of the Father, taking the sinners place, bearing his
sins, receiving his condemnation, dying his death, fully paying his penalty, and signing
with His life's blood, the pardon of everyone who should believe upon Him; that
upon simple faith and acceptance of the atonement purchased on Mount Calvary,
the vilest sinner may be cleansed of his iniquities and made whiter than the driven
V. Salvation Through Grace
We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly through grace; that we have no
righteousness or goodness of our own wherewith to seek divine favor, and must
come, therefore, throwing ourselves upon the unfailing mercy and life of Him who
bought us and washed us in His blood, pleading the merits and righteousness of
Christ the Savior, standing upon His word and accepting the free gifts of His love
VI. Baptism of the Holy Spirit
We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is the incoming of the promised
Comforter in might and glorious fullness to endow the believer with power from on
high and thus enable him for these purposes: to glorify and exalt the Lord Jesus; to
give inspired utterance in witness of Him; to foster the spirit of prayer, holiness and
sobriety; to equip the individual and the Church for practical, efficient, joyous
Spirit-filled soul winning in the fields of life. We believe that this still being the
dispensation of the Holy Spirit, the believer may have every reason to expect His
incoming to be after the same manner as that in which He came upon Jew and
Gentile alike in Bible days and as recorded in the Word.
VII. The Second Coming of Christ
We believe that the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent; that He will
descend from Heaven in the clouds of glory with the voice of the Archangel and
with the trump of God; and that that this hour, which no man knoweth beforehand the
dead in Christ shall rise; then the redeemed that are alive and remain shall be caught
up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and that so shall
they ever be with the Lord.
We believe the Bible teaches that marriage is ordained by God and is the union between one man and one woman.
IX. Sanctity of Life
We believe the Bible teaches that life is sacred and begins at conception.
