Belief

L.W. Gates Ministries Believes . . .
• That the Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God.
• In the oneness of God – that there are three manifestations of the one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
• The name by which God is known is Lord Jesus Christ.
• In the virgin birth, death, burial, and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ.
• In the necessity of baptism in water in Jesus’ name according to Acts 2:38, and the infilling of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2:4. This constitutes the new birth spoken of by the Lord Jesus Christ in St. John 3:5.
• In living a holy, consecrated, and sanctified life.
• In the translation of the saints, commonly known as the rapture (I Thess. 4:13-17).
