The purpose of the First Church of the Open Bible is to glorify God, bring people to Jesus Christ and minister to the spiritual, emotional, physical, and social needs of people.
What We Believe
The bible is God’s infallible Word, an accurate and reliable authority by which we know what we believe and how to live. It is our source and inspiration for why we exist as a church.
We believe that just as there is a literal earth, there is also a literal Heaven for the redeemed and a literal hell for lost sinners. We believe that every person is a sinner born into sin, shaped in iniquity and is spiritually blind, spiritually lost and is spiritually dead in trespasses and sin. He is separated from God. Having no hope and without God in this world, and must be born again in order to enter the Kingdom of God.
We believe that because of God’s great love and mercy for sinners, He is not willing that any should perish forever in the literal flames of hell, where the worm never die and the fires never extinguish, but that all should come to repentance. Now Heaven’s gate is open wide for all who will repent of their sins by calling upon the only name by which we can be saved, even Jesus Christ our Lord and by faith in His cleansing blood we receive the gift of eternal life.
We also believe that there will be a literal resurrection both for those who receive Jesus Christ in their life, the only hope of salvation, and also for those who despise and reject Him.
We believe that there will also be a literal Judgment Day that God has appointed, when God Almighty shall judge this world by Jesus Christ, the one supreme Judge whom He has ordained.
Finally, we believe in the literal return of our Lord Jesus Christ from Heaven, and that we must be prepared to meet Him at any time.
