For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
The following are the core beliefs of Unlock the Bible Now, Inc. based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.
There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise. God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom, justice, and mercy. Long ago there was a rebellion of satanic angels against the Creator, led by a being named the Serpent, and the earth and creation are reeling in the wake of war and ruin from this rebellion.
God has revealed himself to us through his son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, the Holy Scriptures, and through all of Creation itself. The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament sheweth His handiwork.
Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin, given dominion over a restored Earth, and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creation.
When Adam and Eve disobeyed God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became separated from God's presence.. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, and introduced sin and death into the human condition. The Serpent was instrumental in provoking this fall.
Jesus Christ came to reconcile mankind with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.
The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. God is actively seeking mankind today to accept the redemption He has provided as a free gift and save us from His coming wrath.
Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth. He will destroy the Serpent and his angels along with all who choose to follow him and reject Christ as Lord, and He will restore the earth to its original glory under man's dominion with His Son Jesus Christ as King.
