Aston Francis Ministry International, Inc. is very strict on matters of Doctrine. Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ requires this.
The *Bible is the inerrant Word of God.
There is only one God.
There is one savior: Jesus Christ.
There is one Holy Spirit.
There is one plan of Salvation.
There is one true Gospel of Jesus Christ.
There is one true Apostles' doctrine.
Hell and Heaven are real.
Everyone need salvation.
We are living in the End Times (or Last Days).
The plan of Salvation
Acts 2:38 Summarizes the Plan of Salvation: Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. The new convert is expected to continue in the apostles' doctrine and live a holy life.
The scripture shows that baptism is by immersion in water. (Act 8:38, Romans 6:3-4) You must be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ (Acts 2:38). We do not baptize infants nor sprinkle with water.
Everyone must acknowledge that they have sinned, repent of their sins and ask God for forgiveness.
We Speak in Tongues when we initially receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Mar 16:17, Acts 2:4, Rom. 8:26)
We believe in the Pre-Tribulation rapture. The church will be taken out of the world before the Tribulation starts.
1 Th 4:13-17 Our Lord and Savior will return for his Church at any moment.
1Th 4:16 "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:"
1Th 4:17 "Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."
Mat_22:37 "Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. "
Joh_13:35 "By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another."
Marriage is a covenant instituted by God, and is a sacred bond between a man and a woman.
Rom_12:18 "If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men."
Mat_10:16 "Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves."
