Doctrinal Statement

1. The Divine Authority & Inspiration of Scriptures.
We believe the Holy Bible to be “The Holy Scriptures” as set forth in 2 Timothy 3;15, and as such are “given by inspiration of God” (vs. 16), and therefore infallible, perfect, without error and Holy. By Holy Bible we mean that collection of sixty six books “containing the Old and New Testaments translated out of the Original tongues and with the former translations diligently compared and revised by His Majesty’s command and appointed to be read in churches”, commonly called the King James Bible, or Authorized Version of 1611 A.D.

2. The Trinity of God.
We believe that there is only one God and Father (Ephesians 4;6/ 1 Corinthians 8:4-6), and such a Blessed God and Saviour exists eternally in three persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost (Matthew 28:19). We believe that these Three are the One and Only True and Wise God (Exodus 20:1, 2/ 1 Corinthians 12:3/ 2 Corinthians 3:17).

3. The Deity & Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ.
We believe that Jesus Christ is God Almighty (John 10:30/ 1 Timothy 3:16/ John 1:1, 14/ Acts 20:28/ 1 Timothy 1:1), and has, does, and shall eternally exist as the Son of God (Proverbs 30:4/ Daniel 3:25/ John 11:27/ 3:16). We believe Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, took upon himself the likeness of sinful flesh (Romans 8:3), being born of a virgin (Matthew 1:18-25/ Luke 1:26, 27), which birth was altogether supernatural and miraculous, not being the result of man’s seed (Luke 1:34), but of the Holy Ghost (see Matthew 1:18-20).

4. Salvation.
We believe that salvation in this age is the free gift of eternal life from God (Romans 6:23), which is only given of God to the sinner who being sorry for his sins after a godly sort (2 Corinthians 7:10, 11) repents, and turns to God (Acts 26:20) by believing on Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, through the actual “faith of Christ” (Galatians 3:22-25), which faith is itself “the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8, 9). We believe no one is saved by simply claiming they are, or praying they are, when they have not yet repented of their sin and turned to God, and brought forth fruits meets for repentance (Acts 26:20/ 20:21/ 2 Timothy 2:25) as evidence of the transforming work of God in their lives. As strict Bible believers, we hold that no one can believe on the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 16:31) without “the faith of Jesus Christ” (Galatians 3:22-25), and the proof of such is seen daily in the lives of those who “profess that they know God; but in works they deny him” (Titus 1:16), having not “that faith” (Galatians 3:25) “which was once delivered to the saints” (Jude 3); going to church while “having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin” (2 Peter 2:14) having “believed in vain” (1 Corinthians 15:2) with the fantastical belief of devils (James 2:19) and not of God alone. Faith alone justifies (Romans 3:28/ Galatians 3:11), but not that faith which is alone (James 2:17).

5. The Necessity, Effect and Meaning of Preaching.
We believe “it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe” (1 Corinthians 1:21), and that God Almighty “hath in due times manifested his word through preaching” (Titus 1:3), the job of which He commits unto men “called” and “sent” (1 Corinthians 1:17-26), and that such calling is a spiritual “vocation wherewith we are called” (Ephesians 4:1) and gifted to minister therein (vs. 8-12). We hold the absolute necessity of the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ as the instrument of salvation in each person’s life (Romans 10:13, 14/ 1 Corinthians 3:5/ 15:1, 2), for it is “power of God” unto salvation (1 Corinthians 1:18). As such, we hold that preaching is a unique, and God inspired form of verbal communication that is distinguished from all other forms of vocal communication. True preaching is the forceful, verbal delivery of a specific Bible truth, wherein the minister of God is commanded to “cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression” (Isaiah 58:1).

6. Obedience to God before Man.
We believe with all our hearts that “we ought to obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29), and that in matters of conflict between God’s command in our lives and the regulatory edicts of man forbidding obedience to God, let others judge “whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto man more than unto God” (Acts 4:19). But “we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard” (vs. 20). In balancing these conflicts, it is the conscientious belief of the Street Preachers’ Fellowship, that the Bible commands us to obey God (Acts 5:29), and yet “be subject unto the higher powers” (Romans 13:1) “not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake” (vs. 5). By such, the Guild and its members shall steadfastly obey God in continuing to preach the gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15), and yet shall not resist the powers that arrest us for doing so (Romans 13:2). However, the preaching of the cross of Christ shall continue even unto “bonds, and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel” (Philippians 1:7), knowing that by such, “many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by our bonds, are much more bold to speak the word without fear” (vs. 14). Each member therefore, shall “obey magistrates” (Titus 3:1) when called before them to give account of our preaching, and shall with much “honour to whom honour is do” (Romans 13:7) “answer for himself …touching all the things whereof he is accused” (Acts 26:2).

7. Remembering Them That are in Bonds.
We are commanded of God to “remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them” (Hebrews 13:1), and that imprisonments are and should be a common occurrence for the ministers of Christ in such a wicked world we live, if we have proven ourselves as the ministers of God by scripture and the power of God, and not by our pathetic feelings (2 Corinthians 6:4/ 2 Corinthians 11:23-25/ Acts 4:1-3/ 5:17, 18/ 2 Corinthians 11:32/ Acts 12:1-5/ 16:22-24/ 19:23-33/ 21:30-33). Accordingly, we believe it is a sin and a violation of scriptures and our call to preach for a soldier of the cross of Christ to not stand with our fellow soldiers when they “answer” for preaching the gospel against the will of man (2 Timothy 4:16, 17/ Hebrews 13:3). We believe it an act of cowardice against Christ to be “ashamed of the testimony of our Lord” and his “prisoner” in chains (2 Timothy 1:8, 16) under the weak kneed presumption that a preacher in jail must have done something wrong. Being commanded to remember such “as bound with them” it requires more of us than general thoughts at home of what that saint must have done to cause him to be jailed for doing it. As members of the Street Preachers’ Fellowship, we hold that the faithful support of each member of the Guild who for the preaching becomes one of God’s prisoners (2 Timothy 1:8) is more important than our reputation, safety and freedom, and shall endeavor to “seek them out” and minister unto them (vs. 17, 18) as long as God gives us life and health. Accordingly, we believe the preaching of the gospel such a righteous act of God, that it behooves us to conduct our ministration in the same manner, adhering to all the scriptural instructions for our preaching, and as much as the Bible will allow, balancing the same with the laws of the land, so that when we are imprisoned for preaching, it will be “as a Christian” and not “as an evildoer” (1 Peter 4:15, 16), God help us.

8. The Sin and Weakness of Compromising.
We believe it is a sin against the “the profession of our faith” (Hebrews 10:23) in Jesus Christ to compromise in any area of the gospel ministry, and they that do so are “menpleasers” (Ephesians 6:6/ Colossians 3:22), “gainsayers” (Titus 1:9/ Acts 10:29/ Jude 11) and wavering contradictors like “a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed” with the opinions and arguments of men and not God (James 1:6, 7). We believe a compromise is just that, a co-promise made to settle differences without offending the wrong side, and such flies in the face of God as a breach of faith when we are commanded to “hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised)”.

9. Open Rebuke.
We believe that “open rebuke is better than secret love” (Proverbs 27:5), and that the blame for the wicked condition of society is totally on the record of Christian ministers who say they love everyone, but openly rebuke no one. As preachers, we are commanded to “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine” (2 Timothy 4:2), and in so doing, “endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry” (vs. 5). We believe the obedience to the former (vs.2) always results in the latter (vs. 5), and that such enduring of “afflictions” is part and parcel of the “full proof of thy ministry” (see 2 Corinthians 6:4, 5). The Bible placing such ministerial rebukes and reproofs within the work of an evangelists (2 Timothy 4:2-5), it defines the arena for our rebukes and reproofs to be among the lost and wicked world. Fear of doing that, silences the majority of Christian ministers, and hides them and their preaching within the safety of their church buildings. We believe it is the sin of cowardice and dereliction of duty to God to only correct sin amongst the saints, while allowing wickedness to take over our nation. Accordingly, we believe it paramount to the call to preach, that we openly rebuke sin wherever we find it wrought of men, and that for the preachers to cease from openly rebuking sin, creates a society “that cannot cease from sin” (2 Peter 2:14).

10. The Calling Out and Naming of Sin.
We believe that a preacher cannot preach against sin without naming it and calling it for what it is. In like reason, a preacher’s rebuke of sin is worthless on its face, when he cannot personally address the sinners that committed it. To rebuke sin and not the sinner is the generalized ministration of cowards, who for want of fear, preach against things and not people, against actions and not actors, who preach against the committing of sin, but cannot preach to the person committing it. Accordingly, it is the belief of the Fellowship and its members that true Bible preaching cannot be done without naming the sin as well as the sinner, and will stand to the scriptures in support of its members before the saints, and the courts of justice (see Matthew 23:13-17, 23-33/ James 4:4/ Acts 8:20-23/ 13:9, 10/ 14:14, 15/16:18/ 17:22/ 23:3/ 1 Kings 21:17-24/ 2 Chronicles 19:1,2/).
