What We Believe

What We Believe

If you want to go directly to the pages that provide our doctrinal statement, click the link of your choice;

  1. Basic Doctrinal Statement

  2. Detailed Doctrinal Statement

If you wish to understand why we provide two statements and so much in them, read on below...

Why it is import for you
to know what we believe

I am often disappointed when I come across Christian websites or brochures that provide introductory materials for Christian churches or organizations. I am often disappointed because a doctrinal statement is either not provided at all, or what is provided is so brief and vague that the person looking through the information is often left wondering about some specific points.

Brief and vague doctrinal statements are more likely to entice more people to make use of an organization’s services, because more people are likely to believe the organization is in agreement with their own beliefs. This can be okay if the organization and the individual seeking services are both doctrinally sound. But, it is not okay if either one is doctrinally askew, or if they unknowingly differ in areas not covered in the doctrinal statement.

The Biblical example is for individuals or organizations to fully disclose their doctrinal position. This will likely decrease the number of those who would venture past the introductory materials, just as the Bible teaches that many will be offended by the gospel. Yet, I believe that full disclosure is what Paul practiced as was reflected in his statement…

‘But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience…’ (2 Timothy 3:10).

Web sites have a tremendous opportunity to lead people to saving faith in Jesus Christ, and also to build up the body of Christ. But such can only be done if all is soundly based upon God’s word. For example, one cannot be born again apart from the word of God…

Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever (1 Peter 1:23).

No, we are not worshipping the Bible. The Bible itself states that the Word is magnified above the Name of God (Psalm 138:1) Thus, the Word of God is integral to the entire divine process by which people are brought to faith in Christ. The Word teaches that it is not by any human works, but by God’s divine grace, that people are saved through faith and simple confession in; the Person of Jesus Christ, His finished work, and His resurrection…

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9–10)

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:2–9)

Likewise it is the Spirit of God that draws a person to faith in Christ. He also performs the supernatural act of washing away sin and bringing about the rebirth in the believer…

No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. (John 6:44)

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; (Titus 3:5–6)

Yet, it is the word of God being shared by someone and also being received by the hearer that makes all the above possible…

How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? (Romans 10:14)

It is not the word of God that is to be worshipped—it is the word made flesh (John 1:14), the Lord Jesus Christ, who is to be worshipped. The true nature of the Lord Jesus is inseparable from His word. It is by obeying and practicing the word of God that believers can obey and worship the Lord Jesus. To worship Him in Spirit and in truth is to worship the one who is revealed in the word of God, and according to God's word.

The importance of the word of God in God’s eternal scheme is evident from even Old Testament times…

I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. (Psalm 138:2)

The word of God is the avenue that people must travel in their quest to find God and His perfect will for their lives. God expresses Himself through the word by doctrine. And it is this doctrine that is all important in leading the lost to Christ and building up and maturing those whom have already been saved and are seeking to grow from the milk and meat of God’s word…

As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: (1 Peter 2:2)

If any ministry or Christian organization professes to provide a spiritual service to believers or non-believer, it must focus on the Word of God...

It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. (John 6:63)

Christian ministries must also focus on all doctrine, and all scripture, for the Bible itself teaches that all scripture, and all doctrine, is essential

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. (2 Timothy 3:16–17)

Without promoting all doctrine that is based upon all scripture as the divine basis in any ‘ministry,’ its activities are mere expressions of religious altruism or marketing the sacred at best.

It is understandable that not all people wish to immediately engage in reading a long doctrinal statement upon first being introduced to a ministry. This is especially true when they are merely ‘browsing’ to see what is available. An initial brief doctrinal statement concerning what some refer to as the 'essentials' is often all they want.

However, when a person takes the step of going from mere browsing to becoming an active participant, supporter, or receiver of services or goods, the need for full doctrinal understanding and agreement become paramount. Agreement on the so-called essentials is not enough.

God inspired the Apostle Paul to admonish the believers in Corinth to strive for such perfect agreement that they all thought (‘same mind’) and said the same things!

Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. (1 Corinthians 1:10)

The context from which the previous passage was taken indicates that Paul’s instruction on perfect agreement concerned Christian ideas and teaching (1:5–6), as would be expressed in doctrine. When a group of believers are not in perfect agreement on doctrine there are rents or tears (‘divisions’) that prevent true unity. When such unity is absent, then quarrelsome strife (‘contentions’, 1:11,) ensues. The word ‘contentions’ is translated from the Greek e[ride", from which the English language gets the word heresy. Such contention may be overt and intensely disruptive, or it may be relegated to the background and overlooked to various degrees. Whether the strife is on the surface or below it, it is still there, and it is disruptive to the cause of Christ and the Kingdom of God.

Paul’s instruction was for each believer to turn to the study of God’s word and seek to arrive at the truth with the help, and by the power, of God’s spirit. As each arrived at the truth they would also find themselves coming into perfect spiritual harmony with each other.

Contrariwise, the modern ecumenical movement encourages each party to ‘overlook’ the differences in order to come together in some kind of humanistic unity and pseudo-harmony. Such people may often link arms and sway side to side while they look joyfully and starry-eyed up to heaven while singing spiritual songs of praise. Other’s find common ground by speaking in 'unknown tongues.' But unfortunately, when the lost witness such practices they often shake their heads and walk away in disgust, believing that they have seen mad fanaticism in operation—which is exactly what Paul said would occur…

If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad? (1 Corinthians 14:23)

The beloved lost, whom the Spirit of the Father is drawing to his son, are usually looking for something with true spiritual substance, understanding, and comprehension. The Spirit of God prompts them to look for something real, something more than ‘religion,’ and something that transcends human to human relationships. They are looking for a God who can understand them, and a God they can understand. Simply put, the sincere seekers are searching for a God with whom they can ‘reason’…

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. (Isaiah 1:18)

Ecumenical Christians often boast in their ability to differ in doctrine and practice, yet being able to come together in worship, praise, ministry, and unity. But in reality, their behavior portrays not a God of love and holy mystery, but instead a God who seems to be unsure of just who He is, and also unsure of what His people are supposed to believe and practice!

Thus, the lost that are being drawn by the Spirit of God turn away. They are looking for a God who is consistent and immutable in His nature, and is also consistent and immutable in His behavior toward those who would believe in him. Such a God would by nature build a church that has the same characteristics.

Not all those without Christ will turn away from ecumenical demonstrations of unity. The Creator of mankind placed within the makeup of mankind a yearning—or, an itch if you will—for spiritual communion with Himself. The un-regenerated often embark on an unbridled and unguided quest for someone or something that transcends the physical dimension that will satisfactorily scratch the itch.

Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (2 Timothy 4:2-4)

The Enemy takes advantage of this itch by supplying various forms of religion and rites to pacify those who would be satisfied with such. Lucifer, the angel of Light, is a purveyor and peddler of spiritual junk food, and he knows exactly where and how to scratch. He specializes in ecstatic warm-fuzzies, shaking signs, wavering wonders, endless rites to righteousness, lose love, and music that makes the flesh move. But all this does is promote a type of worship that is at odds to the spirit and truth way of God as it has been revealed in His word.

In reality, such unwonted worship and ministry mock God. It mocks the immutability of God. It mocks the unity of God with His word. It mocks the true spiritually inspired and empowered unity that God ordained for his Church. It mocks the reason (the logos) of God who has revealed Himself through His word, and desires for us to know, understand, and worship Him accordingly.

The Spirit of the Heavenly Father will steer those, whom He is leading, away from such ecumenical gatherings and displays, and to a place instead were the word of God is simply taught, believed, and practiced. The Lord Jesus inspired the Apostle Paul to warn that in the last days multitudes of people would be damned by being led astray by one that would perform every sign, miracle, and wonder that was listed in the Bible...

7For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thess. 2:7-12)

Those who will be led into error and eternally damned are those who will reject the simple teaching and practicing of God's word. Since God first created and placed mankind in the world, those who reject His word do so because it conflicts with their unbiblical desires and lifestyles. Desire and lifestyles that they love.

Unfortunately, too many today act as though parts of God's word no longer apply—or, is no longer essential. Such misled ones choose to focus on a few 'key essentials,' and they deem the rest to be a matter of personal understanding and preferences for each believer to act upon as they see fit.

In contrast, we believe full doctrinal disclosure is Biblical and absolutely necessary for any ministry that professes to be Biblically based. An organization or individual in ministry may provide a basic concise statement, but it must also make full statement readily available. If properly done, the shorter statement will often let a possible contact know right away if they are in doctrinal agreement. Once one reaches a reasonable amount of assurance that they are in agreement, and they are sincerely contemplating taking advantage of a service or ministry, they should then proceed on to the in-depth statement to make sure that they are in full agreement.

Along with the so-called 'essentials,' we also believe the basic statement should include a statement about…

The individual or organization’s belief and practice on the three revelatory gifts of speaking in tongues, prophecy, and receiving words of knowledge.

The individual or organization’s belief and practice on ecumenism. If they cooperate with numerous denominations and organizations they should be willing to disclose their names as well.

The individual or organization’s limitations—if any—on cooperation and association.

This attitude may seem like overkill or nit-picking to some. But there are scores of people who have had the unfortunate experience of investing time and labor, materials, or financing in an individual or group, only later to learn that they had been supporting or working with someone who held to doctrine, practices, philosophies, or associations with which they seriously disagree. In such ventures people usually get hurt, angry, and even disillusioned in their faith, and confusion reigns supreme. Full doctrinal disclosure can, and will, prevent that.

In keeping with what we believe and teach, Last Chance Ministries has an extensive doctrinal statement for those who wish to read it. But it also provides a shorter simpler statement for those who initially wish to know about our basic beliefs.
