The foundation of Freedom Worship Center is laid upon the principles of biblical holiness. Even before the church experiences the outpouring of the Holy Ghost, its roots were set in the holiness revival of past century. It was, and is, a holiness church – holiness in fact and holiness in name.
The passing of 17 years has not diminished our holiness position or convictions. The years have, instead, strengthened our knowledge that without holiness it is impossible to please God.
We hereby remind ourselves that the Scriptures enjoin us at all times to examine our own hearts. The continuing and consistent life of holiness requires this. Conditions of our day desperately require it. The subtle encroachment of worldliness is very real and unrelenting threat to the church. We must therefore beware lest we become conformed to the world, or lest a love for the world take root in our hearts to manifest itself as lust of the flesh, lust of the eye or the pride of life.
For these reasons, we present the following:
WHEREAS, Freedom Worship Center is historically a holiness church; and
WHEREAS, a tide of worldliness threatens the spirituality of the church;
BE IT RESOLVED that we, Freedom Worship Center, reaffirm our standard of holiness, in stated doctrine, in principles of conduct, and as a living reality in our hearts; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we, Freedom Worship Center believe a life of holiness is a balanced life in spirit, mind and body, and that it places the believer in a Christ-like relationship to God and fellowmen; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we, as ministers, maintain this standard in our own lives, in our homes and in our pulpits; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we, as ministers and members, rededicate ourselves to this purpose, and guard our lives against conformity to the world in appearance, in selfish ambition, in carnal attitude and in evil associations; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we, as ministers and members, seek to conform to the positive virtues of love, mercy and forgiveness as taught by Jesus Christ.
