2) We stand for
BIBLICAL MARRIAGE -
a man and a woman as Christ Jesus is the BRIDEGROOM and the Church is the BRIDE in UNION as ONE!
Ephesians 5:30-32 King James Version(KJV)
For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
3) Our British Constitutional Stand -Britain who does not teach its constitution to its people. We do and apply it!
Constitutionally we are not a multi-faith society that is bound to keep the policies, procedures and laws of foreign unelected powers. COMING SOON - THE CONSTITUTION KEEPERS WEBSITE.
4) Our KJV Stand
The Real Church, now only a remnant believes all of the Bible is true but the Nestle Committee of the "new translations"presenting an "ever-changing" Gospel meaning today we also have a Church bound by change, unbelief and syncretisation with paganism.
The 27th. edition of the Nestle-Aland text underlying all "new translations" in its introduction admits this:
The text shared by these two editions was adopted internationally by Bible Societies, and following an agreement between the Vatican and the United Bible Societies it has served as the basis for new translations and for revisions made under their supervision. This marks a significant step with regard to inter confessional relationships. It should naturally be understood that this text is a working text (in the sense of the century-long Nestle tradition): it is not to be considered as definitive, but as a stimulus to further efforts toward defining and verifying the text of the New Testament .........
We simply do not accept a non-definitive, working text constantly revised by academics, text that has even described Jesus as "a son of the gods."
We also have a problem with the non-acceptance of "absolutes."
Paul Smith in his excellent book "New Evangelicalism" states this:
Today postmodernists dismiss the idea of absolute truth; epistemology, the study of knowledge, is still a hot button issue.
Why do some postmodernists stand in the pulpits of Christian churches as ministers of our Lord Jesus Christ?
They are pretenders with invisible garments; they are as naked as the proverbial emperor!
So what we have today is a "Church" that has "Bibles" from a translations committee who has openly admitted that their work is not absolute. So no more do we have in Pentecostal and Evangelical "churches" an absolute Bible.
This is clearly shown in Elim's postmodern statement of faith that declares a fully inspired and infallible Word of God but only as originally given and so this denomination is now dominated by ever-changing postmodern "Bibles" without the Sword of its founder.
This heresy is clearly shown on Elim's website in their "What we Believe" section: We believe the Bible, as originally given, to be without error, the fully inspired and infallible Word of God and the supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
Now we in North Wales have rejected all of this post-modernist thinking seeing once great movements taken over by "purpose driven" heresies of philosophical business techniques. It is so sad!
The Bible used in this fellowship is inerrant, can be relied upon and used as the Spirit leads as the "Sword of the Spirit."
Smith Wigglesworth used it to great effect for he believed it! He did not believe it had to constantly changed.
He did not believe that Tyndale's sacrifice at the stake was for a faulty Bible to be authorised by the King!
He did not believe any of this, He believed the inerrant KJV!
The Word of God has not to be prayed about; the Word of God is to be received and obeyed.
The Bible is the Word of God: supernatural in origin, external induration,inexpressible in valour, infinite in scope, regenerative in power, infallible in authority,universal in interest, personal in application,inspired in totality.
Read it through, write it down, pray it in, work it out, and then pass it on.
Truly the Word of God changes a man until he becomes an "epistle" of God.
It transforms his mind, changes his character, moves him on from grace to grace, and makes him an inheritor of the very nature of God. God comes in, dwells in, walks in, talks through, and sups with him who opens his being to the Word of God.
The scriptures declare that we are in Christ, and Christ is in God. what is able to move you from that place of omnipotent power?
Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword (Romans 8:35)?
Shall death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers (v.38)?
Nay, In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us (v.37)?
But we must be found in Him! There is a place of seclusion, a place of rest and faith in Jesus where there is nothing else like it.
We invite you to this INERRANT SWORD CARRYING MINISTRY along the Antioch line!
Rejecting inerrancy of the Word today leaves organisations like Elim wide open to sin, lack of conviction and false revivals that glorify man rather than God.
We stand for this even if it means losing popularity with man - conviction has to return and that can only come through the inerrant Word of God, applied as revealed by the Spirit today.
Hell has not been removed from the KJV as in the "new translations" and so we preach the old fashioned Word that Christ Jesus came down to save sinners from a fiery continuous eternity in hell.
