Understanding that the process of getting acquainted with a church family involves becoming familiar with their beliefs, we have provided a brief summary of our Articles of Faith. At Oak Grove Baptist Restoration Ministries, we believe that there is one, and only one, true and living God. His name is JEHOVAH, the maker and supreme ruler of heaven and earth, and has further revealed Himself in the Trinity: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that the Bible is the infallible Word of God and that it was written by divinely inspired men.
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God but by voluntary transgressions, fell from that happy and holy state and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Jesus took on our sinful nature and being born of a virgin, he lived a sinless life. He gave His life on the cross as the supreme sacrifice for our sins purchasing our redemption with His blood.
Through Christ’s death and resurrection, God provided salvation, and only by believing in Jesus Christ can man receive forgiveness of sins and inherit the promise of eternal life. We believe that the blessings of salvation are made free to all by the gospel and that nothing prevents the salvation of a sinner but his own voluntary rejection of the gospel. Our ministry also believes that all believers are entitled to, should expect and earnestly seek the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, which is a promise of the Father. With it you will receive power for life and service, as well as the Spiritual gifts and their uses for the work of the ministry.
It is our belief that at the last day Christ will descend from heaven and raise the dead in Christ from the grave to final retribution. A solemn separation will then take place wherein the wicked will be adjudged to endless punishment and the righteous to endless joy.
