Introducing The Master’s College
gave proof that God has accepted the atoning work
of Christ on the cross. Jesus’ bodily resurrection is
also the guarantee of a future resurrection life for
all believers (John 5:26-29; 14:19; Romans 1:4; 4:25;
6:5-10; 1 Corinthians 15:20, 23).
We teach that Jesus Christ will return to receive
the church, which is His body, unto Himself at the
Rapture and, returning with His church in glory, will
establish His millennial kingdom on earth (Acts 1:9-
11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 20).
We teach that the Lord Jesus Christ is the One
through whom God will judge all mankind (John
a. Believers (1 Corinthians 3:10-15;
2 Corinthians 5:10)
b. Living inhabitants of the earth at His
glorious return (Matthew 25:31-46)
c. Unbelieving dead at the Great White Throne
As the mediator between God and man (1 Timothy
2:5), the head of His body the church (Ephesians
1:22; 5:23; Colossians 1:18), and the coming universal
King who will reign on the throne of David (Isaiah
9:6; Luke 1:31-33), He is the final Judge of all who
fail to place their trust in Him as Lord and Savior
(Matthew 25:14-46; Acts 17:30-31).
God the Holy Spirit.
We teach that the Holy Spirit is
a divine person, eternal, underived, possessing all the
attributes of personality and deity including intellect
(1 Corinthians 2:10-13), emotions (Ephesians 4:30),
will (1 Corinthians 12:11), eternality (Hebrews
9:14), omnipresence (Psalm 139:7-10), omniscience
(Isaiah 40:13-14), omnipotence (Romans 15:13), and
truthfulness (John 16:13). In all the divine attributes
He is coequal and consubstantial with the Father
and the Son (Matthew 28:19; Acts 5:3-4; 28:25-26; 1
Corinthians 12:4-6; 2 Corinthians 13:14; and Jeremiah
31:31-34 with Hebrews 10:15-17).
We teach that it is the work of the Holy Spirit to
execute the divine will with relation to all mankind.
We recognize His sovereign activity in creation
(Genesis 1:2), the incarnation (Matthew 1:18), the
written revelation (2 Peter 1:20-21), and the work of
salvation (John 3:5-7).
We teach that a unique work of the Holy Spirit in
this age began at Pentecost when He came from the
Father as promised by Christ (John 14:16-17; 15:26)
to initiate and complete the building of the body of
Christ, which is His church (1 Corinthians 12:13).
The broad scope of His divine activity includes
convicting the world of sin, of righteousness, and
of judgment; glorifying the Lord Jesus Christ and
transforming believers into the image of Christ (John
16:7-9; Acts 1:5; 2:4; Romans 8:29; 2 Corinthians 3:18;
We teach that the Holy Spirit is the supernatural and
sovereign agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers
into the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:13).
The Holy Spirit also indwells, sanctifies, instructs,
empowers them for service, and seals them unto the
day of redemption (Romans 8:9; 2 Corinthians 3:6;
We teach that the Holy Spirit is the divine teacher
who guided the apostles and prophets into all truth as
they committed to writing God’s revelation, the Bible.
Every believer possesses the indwelling presence of
the Holy Spirit from the moment of salvation, and it
is the duty of all those born of the Spirit to be filled
with (controlled by) the Spirit (John 16:13; Romans
8:9; Ephesians 5:18; 2 Peter 1:19-21; 1 John 2:20, 27).
We teach that the Holy Spirit administers spiritual
gifts to the church. The Holy Spirit glorifies neither
Himself nor His gifts by ostentatious displays, but
He does glorify Christ by implementing His work
of redeeming the lost and building up believers
in the most holy faith (John 16:13-14; Acts 1:8; 1
Corinthians 12:4-11; 2 Corinthians 3:18).
We teach, in this respect, that God the Holy Spirit
is sovereign in the bestowing of all His gifts for the
perfecting of the saints today and that speaking in
tongues and the working of sign miracles in the
beginning days of the church were for the purpose
of pointing to and authenticating the apostles as
revealers of divine truth, and were never intended
to be characteristic of the lives of believers (1
Corinthians 12:4-11; 13:8-10; 2 Corinthians 12:12;
Ephesians 4:7-12; Hebrews 2:1-4).
