What We Believe
The following are the core beliefs of Beauty From Ashes Ranch, based on foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.
There is only one true God, the Maker, Preserver, and Ruler of all things, having in and of Himself all perfections and being infinite in them all. Every person and creature owe Him and Him alone the highest love, reverence, and obedience (Deut. 6:4, Ps. 145:3, Jn. 1:3, I Cor. 8:4-6, II Cor. 1:3-14, I Tim. 1:17).
Scriptures reveal that the one true God exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Each is equal in power and Deity; by Him all things were created, are upheld and governed (Matt. 3:16-17, 28:19,
II Cor. 13:14).
We believe in the Holy Bible, the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original autographs. The Holy Bible is the supreme rule of faith and truth (II Tim. 3:16-17,
II Peter 1:20-21)
We believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ, His miraculous birth, His sinless life, His teaching, His miracles, His substitutionary and atoning death on the cross for our sins. We believe in His literal resurrection and ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His literal return to this earth to rule in power and glory. He is the only Mediator between God and man, the Prophet, Priest, and is Sovereign over all the universe (Is. 53:10-12, Jn. 1:1;14, Lk. 1:26-38, Acts 1:9-11, Rom. 3:21-26, 8:34, I Cor. 15:3-4, II Cor. 5:21, I Tim. 2:5, Heb. 1:1-3, 7:25).
THE SIN NATURE
We believe that all after Adam are born sinners by nature, under eternal condemnation. The Holy Spirit convicts man and regenerates all who repent of their sins, confessing Jesus as Lord and believing in His resurrection (Gen. 1:26-27, 3:1-7, 6:5, 8:21, Ps. 51:5, Rom. 3:9-18, 5:12-19, 7:7-28, 8:5-8. Eph. 2:1-3).
