Our Beliefs

We feel that it important for prospective visitors and members to know the foundation of our belief…
  • We believe the 66-book Bible is verbally inspired and inerrant in the original writings. We believe the Bible must be interpreted literally, according to context, history, and grammar. We believe the dispensational approach to the Bible.
  • We believe there is one only living and true God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that man was created in the image of God, but he sinned, and thereby all human beings are born with a sin nature which is at enmity with God. Man therefore needs to be reconciled to God, released from slavery to sin, and delivered from God’s wrath against sin and the guilt of sin.
  • We believe in Christ’s virgin birth, physical bodily resurrection, ascension, and present life there for us.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ died in our place at Calvary and that His sacrifice is the only ground for forgiveness of sin.
  • We believe that salvation is by grace through faith and that all who believe in Him have been transformed, are being sanctified, and are eternally saved.
  • We believe in the personal, imminent, pretribulation, and premillennial coming of the Lord Jesus, and in His subsequent return to the earth to set up His Kingdom.
 
About the Tithe at Rising Star
  • We believe that all Christians should give to God through the local church a minimum of 10% of their income. (Nehemiah 13:12; Malachi 3: 8-11; Matthew 23: 23)
  • A tithe is defined as giving a minimum of 1/10 of your gross income to the Lord through this church each time you receive income. Because one receives from their gross salary, we highly recommend each one tithe from the gross. Tithing from the gross assures you are in compliance with biblical teaching regarding the tithe.
  • The goal of tithing is not equal giving but equal sacrifice. Tithing is the basis of our giving not the boundary.
