These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. -- I John 5:13
God's Gift of Eternal Life




"MINISTRY'S STATEMENT OF FAITH"

THE WORD OF GOD
This ministry believes in the "Verbal Inspiration of God" pertaining to the writing and compiling of the Word of God (The Bible). We believe, that the manuscripts of the Masuretic Text (Hebrew- Old Testament) and the Textus Receptus (Greek- New Testament) combined together is the "Inspired (God-Breathed)" Word of God (The Bible). We believe, that all of the Word of God is "True" (Literally, Historically and Figurtively). We believe, that the "Best English Version" of the Bible is the "King James Version" concerning accuracy. There are many other versions, that are easier to read, but we refuse to base our beliefs or doctrines on any other version (But the KJV). We are thankful to God, for the other versions of the Bible, gospel tracts and promotions, that God has used to "win souls!"

John 1: 1 - "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

II Timothy 3: 16 - "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness."

II Peter 1: 20, 21 - "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost."

THE TRINITY (THE TRIUNE GOD)
This ministry believes in the "Trinity." We believe in "One God" unified in three persons (Father, Son and Holy Ghost).

Genesis 1: 26, 27 - "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all of the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him, male and female created he them."

Matthew 28: 19, 20 - "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost :"

"GOD'S SALVATION"
This ministry believes, that God's Salvation is by the Grace of God through 100% Faith in Jesus Christ the Lord. We believe, that "No One" can ever do enough "Good", to earn their way into God's Heaven. We believe, that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, is the perfect sinless sacrifice for our sins (John the Baptist said unto Jesus, "Behold the Lamb of God, that taketh away the sins of the world - John 1: 29) and the Only Way to the Father in Heaven (John 14: 6).

Romans 3: 10 - " As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one."

Romans 3: 23,24,25 - "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;"

Ephesians 2: 8, 9 - "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 shold boast."

"ETERNAL SECURITY OF THE BELIEVER (CHRISTIAN)"
This ministry believes that all born-again believers are eternally safe and secure in the hands of God. "Once Saved You Are Always Saved (According to the promises in God's Word)!"

John 10: 27, 28, 29 - "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand."

I John 5: 11, 12, 13 - "And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God."

"CHRIST'S CHURCH"
This ministry believes, that "Christ's Church" is made-up of Believers, that have been "Born-Again or Regenerated" by the Spirit of God (Eph. 1:13,14). All of these, have been baptized by the Spirit of God into One Body, with One Lord and One Faith (Eph. 4: 4-6); in whom Jesus Christ is the Head (Eph. 1: 17-23). The Church's Great Commission (#1 Purpose) is to spread the "Gospel of Jesus Christ to the World (Matthew 28:18-20: "Win Them, Wet Them & Work Them!")." The "Mission Out-Reach" of "Christ's Church" is to be Local, Regional, National and World-Wide (Acts 1:8)!

"CHRIST'S RAPTURE (Snatching Awav) OF HIS CHURCH (His Bride) ON THE EARTH"
This ministry believes in the "Pre-Tribulation Return Of Jesus Christ" in the "Clouds Only" to "Call His Church" from this Earth to Heaven with Him. This is Not the "Second Coming of Jesus Christ", but "Only The Event", that precedes the "Seven (7) Years Of Tribulation." All Christians (Saints), that have previously "Died" and those that are "Alive", will be "Caught Up" at this Event. *Scripture References: Matthew 24: 36-44; I Corinthians 15: 51, 52; I Thessalonians 4:13-18.

"THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST (To The Earth!)"
This ministry believes in the "Bodily (Physical) Return" of Jesus Christ (With His Saints with Him in the Clouds) from Heaven (Zechariah 14: 3, 4; Acts 1: 9-12; I Thessalonians 3: 13; Jude v.14). He shall take the "Throne of David (Isaiah 9: 6-7; Luke 1: 32-33)" and "Reign & Rule on the Earth" for the prophecied "One Thousand Years", known as the "Millenium (Zechariah 14: 9; Revelation 20:4)."

To My Dear Readers,

GodsGiftOfEternalLife.Com's, "Ministry Statement Of Faith" contains a very brief and basic content of Evangelist Dr. Clifford M. Smith's beliefs and doctrines concerning the Lord Jesus Christ according to the King James Holy Bible of 1611. To learn more of what this ministry stands for, go to SWORDOFTHELORD.COM! I believe whole-heartedly in the "Twenty-Seven Articles Of Faith", which were composed by "The Sword Of The Lord Publishers" as their ministry's "Statement Of Faith" in 2008. I don't bow to any world-wide or local church body, denomination, association or popular "ism" movements, but "Bow Only To Every Word That Proceedeth Out Of The Mouth Of God (Deut. 8:3)!" When you read, that Evangelist Clifford M. Smith, Th.D. is an "Old Fashioned Bible Believing Independent Fundamental Baptist Christian", now, you will know the meaning behind this!

"My Prayer To You Is As Follows:" (1.)"May You "Open" The Door Of Your Heart To Receive God's Gift Of Eternal Life (God's Salvation Rev. 3:20)!", (2.)"May You Hunger And Thirst After Righteousness (Matt. 5:6)!", (3.)"May You Seek To Know God And The Power Of His Resurrection (Phil. 3:10)!", (4.)"May You Always Seek First The Kingdom Of God (Matt. 6:33)!" and finally, (5.) "May You Always Hide God's Word In Your Heart, That You May Not Sin Against God (Psalms119:11)!"

TO ALL OF MY FRIENDS AND BROTHERS/SISTERS-IN-CHRIST JESUS THE LORD, MAY WE FOLLOW THE LORD'S COMMANDMENTS AND PRINCIPLES WITH A LOVE IN OUR HEARTS FOR THE GLORY OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST! HALLELUJAH!!!

Christ's Loving Servant,
Evangelist Clifford M. Smith, Th.D.
