GOD'S STANCE ON TRANSGENDER PREFERENCEPhoto GalleryBible StudiesVideos

"For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church:" (Ephesians 5: 23).
COMING OF THE LORD
 The coming of the Lord is profoundly proclaimed in the Word of God. Jesus left it on record that he would return. "In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also" (John 14: 2-3).
           There is a great debate concerning the rapture of the church whether it will be pre-trib, mid-trib, or post-trib. Meaning, whether the Lord will come before the great tribulation, in the middle of the great tribulation, or after the great tribulation. I believe according to the Word of God that God has delivered us from the wrath (great tribulation) to come. The bible says, "And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath (great tribulation) to come" (1 Thessalonians 1: 10). We read in Revelation, "Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation (great tribulation), which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth" (Revelation 3: 10). There are many other scriptures which can prove this stance. Apostle Paul said, "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first; Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord" (1 Thessalonians 4: 16-17).
TITHES AND OFFERINGS
 We the pastor and members of True Deliverance Apostolic Church believe that God requires each individual saint to support the local church with your tithes and offerings. This also has been a subject that is debated among some who believe tithing was done away with the law of Moses. Tithing was practiced before the law and was incorporated into the law of Moses. In Paul's letter to the Corinthians it is made clear that not only was tithing practiced under the law of Moses but is likewise required in the dispensation of the grace of God. "Do ye not know that they (Levites) which minister about holy things live of the things (tithes) of the temple? And they (priests) which wait at the altar are partakers (of tithes) with the altar? EVEN SO (likewise) hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel" (1 Corinthians 9: 13-14). The Word of God says, "Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come (1 Corinthians 16: 2). Surely if God has prospered us with a job, home or apartment, car, clothes, and food, we should be willing to give God at least a tenth of our income plus our offerings.


 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father" (Philippians 2: 9-11). In reading the prophet Isaiah it is plainly revealed that Jesus is God. "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9: 6). This is Jesus Christ and it can be no clearer than this. 
   SALVATION
  The apostle Peter spoke these words on the day of Pentecost, "Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost" (Acts 2: 38). The words Peter spoke corresponds to the message Jesus delivered unto Nicodemus, "Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God" (John 3: 5). We believe that everyone who receives the gift of the Holy Ghost will speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gives the utterance. This is the initial evidence (proof) of receiving the Holy Ghost (Acts 2: 4).

  HOLINESS
 We believe in order to please God you must be holy. The word holy means (to be set apart for God's service). These words are written, "Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy" (1 Peter 1: 16). Apostle Paul said, "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service" (Romans 12: 1). We read in the book of  Hebrews, "Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord" (Hebrews 12: 14). This is evidence that God requires holiness.
        DIVINE HEALING
 We believe that God is yet a healer and he still works miracles. We do not believe in tempting God. As some who handle snakes with the intention to prove that God will heal them if they are bitten. This is not faith but presumption. Apostle Paul did not tempt God when he was bitten by a viper but in the course of putting sticks on a fire he was attacked by a poisonous snake. In such a case God is obligated to heal if you have the faith. "And when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks, and laid them on the fire, there came a viper out of the heat, and fastened on his hand-------And he shook off the beast into the fire, and felt no harm" (Acts 28: 3, 5). God can heal and if we have the faith he will prove himself faithful.
In the book of James we read, "Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him" (James 5: 14-15).


DOCTRINE

This brief doctrine of True Deliverance Apostolic Church is based solely upon the mighty Word of God. We are a church which believes in obeying the Word as it is written
ONE GOD
 We believe in one God who was the Father in creation, Son in redemption, and Holy Ghost in the church. The bible says, "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one  LORD: (Deuteronomy 6: 4). We do not believe in three persons (trinity) in the Godhead. But we yet believe that God manifested himself in the offices of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. We believe the name of God is Jesus Christ. This is the name which is above every name. "Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
MODESTY IN OUR APPAREL 
 We the pastor and members of True Deliverance Apostolic Church believe that God requires for the saints of God to dress modestly. In this day and time when women and men are dressing ungodly. We believe that God yet commands his people to make a difference between holiness and ungodliness. The scriptures commands, "In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. (1 Timothy 2: 9-10).  Some have suggested that there are no commands as how a man should dress, but when the Word of God is rightly divided we understand that God has ordained the man to be the head of the woman, therefore if he requires the women to dress modest every man who is the head of his home will likewise dress modest because of his headship.
