What is Jesus’ baptism and how does it relate to salvation?

After Jesus received water baptism and after He received the Holy Spirit, He said, "But I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how distressed I am till it is accomplished!" Luke 12:50 (NKJV). What baptism was this? It was the complete death of His will and His body. Hebrews 10:7, "Then I said, […]

Where did Jesus go when he died?

Jesus didn’t go anywhere when he died. He was dead in the tomb.​

We read in Isaiah’s prophecy that Jesus “poured out His soul unto death,” that His soul was made “an offering for sin.” (Isaiah 53:12, 10.) Then again we read, “Thou wilt not leave my soul in Sheol ; […]

What is Christmas?

Christmas is celebrated as the anniversary of baby Jesus’s birth. The word “Christmas” is formed from “Christ mass”- meaning a Catholic mass. However, today, most people do not associate a mass with Christmas. ​

We believe that Jesus was born about October 1st. Since Jesus never suggested we commemorate His birthday, it’s not important which day we […]

When did Mary reveal the secret birth of Jesus to His relatives, outsiders, her children's neighbors…even to Jesus, Himself, that He was the Child of GOD?

The Scriptures do not tell us that Mary and Joseph told anyone that Jesus was the Son of God. When Mary was pregnant, she visited her cousin, Elizabeth, and Elizabeth recognized the unborn child as God's Son without being told. The holy spirit revealed this truth to her.  Luke 1:39-45 (NKJV), “Now Mary arose in […]

Why is Jesus called the first born from the dead?

Before Jesus was born on Earth, he was fully spirit with God. After his resurrection, Jesus has an immortal body. Question, can Jesus ever be only spirit like before his incarnation?

When Jesus was with God prior to becoming a human being, He was the Logos or “Word.” He was a perfect spirit being, but not immortal, or of the divine nature. He was the first and only begotten son of God (John 3:16 KJV). 

The Apostle Paul explains in 1 Corinthians 15, that there are spirit beings (bodies) […]

Why did Jesus turn water into wine on Sunday since God rested from all his deeds on the seventh day?

Since God rested from work on the seventh day (Genesis 2:3), and Jesus only did what his Father would do (John 5:19), why would Jesus turn water into wine on the seventh day?  The account of the miracle at the wedding of Cana begins at John 2:1, "And the third day there was a marriage […]

When Jesus was crucified, were His Godhood and Manhood killed? or only his Manhood?

We will define godhood as the state of being a god, just as manhood is the state of being a man. When Jesus was born, he was only and fully a perfect man. Nowhere in the Bible does it teach that Jesus was part god and part man.

Hebrews 10:5-10, "Therefore, when He came into the […]

Why is there instrumental music in worship services today? Jesus didn't give any authority to use instrumental music in worship.

(All citations are from the KJV.)

In Colossians 3:16, we are told, "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord." The word "psalms" in this verse is Strong's Greek word G5568, […]

Is Jesus God, or he is a normal person?

(All citations are from the KJV.)

Jesus is not God. 

Matthew 3:17 – God says of Jesus, "This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased."

John 5:30 – Jesus says, "because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me." Also John 14:28, "I go unto the Father: […]
