Supporting Scripture

The Bible is God’s breath and governs how we should work. Matthew 5:16 

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

1 Corinthians 10:31 

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God

Philippians 1:27 

Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel

Romans 12:3-9

3 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. 4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. 6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your[a] faith; 7 if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8 if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead,[b] do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.

Statement of Faith

This Assembly accepts the Holy Bible as the inspired and revealed Will of God, the all-sufficient rule of faith and practice, and for the purpose of maintaining general unity, adopts the Statement of Fundamental Truths approved by The General Council, as same is now and from time to time may be revised, and as recited in the true copy thereof which follows as an addendum to this Code of Constitution and Bylaws, by the reference incorporated herein as though set forth in full.

The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe. For purposes of Bethlehem Assembly of God’s faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, our lead pastor in consultation with the church board of Bethlehem Assembly of God and in agreement with The General Counsel of Assemblies of God Doctrine Statements of Fundamental Truths is the final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application.
