God Is Love
1Jn 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
1Jn 4:8 The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
1Jn 4:9 By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him.
1Jn 4:10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
1Jn 4:11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
1Jn 4:12 No one has seen God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us.
1Jn 4:13 By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.
1Jn 4:14 We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.
1Jn 4:15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.
1Jn 4:16 We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
1Jn 4:17 By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world.
1Jn 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love.
1Jn 4:19 We love, because He first loved us.
1Jn 4:20 If someone says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen.
1Jn 4:21 And this commandment we have from Him, that the one who loves God should love his brother also.

Resting our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and believing in the teaching and practices of the New Testament, we band ourselves together as a body of believers. We do hereby adopt, ordain, and establish for our government and plan of worship and service, the following declaration of faith covenant, constitution, and by-laws to which we voluntarily submit ourselves:
ARTICLE I. Name
The name of this organization shall be the God’s Love International Non-Profit AND / God’s Love Community Church of Deer Park. The Non-Profit is the parent company of the church. The church is a denominationally unrelated, independent, fundamental, Bible Church, and shall remain as such.
ARTICLE II. Purpose
The purpose of this organization shall be to institute and maintain a testimony to our Lord Jesus Christ; to reach the unsaved through the preaching and teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ at home and aboard; to administer the Word for the edification of believers; and to provide a center for Christian fellowship and the worship of Almighty God.
ARTICLE III. DOCTRINE
We recognize the clear teachings of the Scriptures, and trust in them as our only source for authority for all beliefs and practices. We therefore subscribe to the following doctrinal statement:
1) The Holy Scripture
We believe in the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally inspired Word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original writings, infallible and God-breathed. (II Timothy 3:16, 17, II Peter 1:20, 21)
2) The Godhead
We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections. (Deuteronomy 6:4, II Corinthians 13:14, Mathew 28:19)
3) The Person and Work of Christ
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born to the Virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men. (John 1:1, 2, 12, 14, Luke 28:19)
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a representative, vicarious, substitution sacrifice; and that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead. (Romans 3:24-26; I Peter 2:24, Ephesians 1:7, I Peter 1:3-5)
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to heaven, and is now exalted at the right hand of God, where, as our High Priest, He fulfills the ministry of representative, intercessor, and advocate. (Acts 1:9, 11, Hebrews 9:24, Hebrews 7:25, Romans 8:34, I John 2:1, 2)
4) The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; and that He is the Supernatural Agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, in dwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption. (John 16:8-11, II Corinthians 3:6, I Corinthians 12:12-14, Romans 8:9, Ephesians 5:18)
We believe that He is the Divine Teacher who guides believers into all truth; and that it is the privilege and duty of all the saved to be filled with the Spirit. (John 16:13, I John 2:20, 27, Ephesians 5:18)
5) The Total Depravity of Man
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam’s sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God; and that man is totally depraved, and of himself, utterly unable to remedy his lost condition. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:22-23; Romans 5:12; Ephesians 2:1-3, 12)
We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins. (Ephesians 2:8-10, John 1:12, Ephesians 1:7, I Peter 1:18-19)
We believe that it is the privilege of believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of God’s Word. God’s word clearly forbids the use of Christian liberty as an occasion to sin. (Romans 13:13-14, Galatians 5:13, Titus 2:11-15)
7) The Two Natures of the Believer
We believe that every saved person possess two natures, with provision made for victory of the new nature over the old nature through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit, and that only through the Holy Spirit may the eradication of the old nature be made. (Romans 6:13; Romans 8:12-13; Galatians 5:16-25, Ephesians 4:22-24, Colossians 3:10, I Peter 1:14-16, I John 3:5-9)
We believe that all the saved should live in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Savior and Lord, and that separation from all religious apostasy, all worldly and sinful pleasures, practices and associations is commanded of God. ( II Timothy 3:1-5, Romans 12:1-2, Romans 14:13, I John 2:15-17, II John 1:9-11, II Corinthians 6:16-17)
We believe that it is the obligation of the saved to witness by life and by word to the truths of Holy Scripture and to seek to proclaim the Gospel to all mankind. (Mark 16: 15-16, II Corinthians 5:14-20, Matthew 28:19-20)
10) The Ministry and Spiritual Gifts
A) We believe that God is sovereign in the bestowment of all His gifts; and that the gifts of evangelists, pastors, and teachers are sufficient for the perfecting of the saints today.
B) We do allow the practice the speaking of tongues as sign gifts to edifying of believers. (I Corinthians 13:4-11, I Corinthians 14:1-28, II Corinthians 12:12, Ephesians 4:7-12)
C) We believe that it is the privilege and responsibility of every believer to minister according to the gift and grace of God that is given to him. (Such as the gifts of helps, giving and serving.) (I Peter 4:10-11)
D) We believe that God does hear and answer the prayer of faith in accord with His own will, for the sick and afflicted. (John 15:7, I John 5:14-15, James 5:14-16)
11) The Church
A) We believe that the Church, which is the body and bride of Christ, is a spiritual organism made up of all born again persons of this age of Grace. (Ephesians 5:25-27, I Corinthians 12:12-14, II Corinthians 11:2)
B) We believe that the establishment and continuance of local churches is clearly taught and defined by the New Testament Scriptures. Acts 14:27, Acts 20:17, Acts 28:31, I Timothy 3:1-13, Titus 1:5-11)
C) We believe in the self-government of local churches, free of any external authority or control. (Acts 20
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, light from light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,
was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary
and became truly human.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father [and the Son],
who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.
