The Word of God
The Evangelical Methodist Church reaffirms its stand, without compromise or apology for the Bible as the verbally inspired, infallible, inerrant, and all sufficient Word of God, which God has magnified above His name. (Psalm 138:2)
Evangelical Methodists accept God’s Word as God’s only written Revelation to this world and as the final authority for faith and practice.
We believe that God gave His Word to the human race by divine inspiration (II Timothy 3:16) and that He preserved His Word from that time to all generations. (Psalm 12:7)
Evangelical Methodists urge our churches and pastors to preach and teach God’s Word in our churches, homes, schools, communities, and world-wide. We believe that a return to obedience to the Holy Scriptures will do more to point the world out of its present distress than all of the efforts of men.
Only the Authorized King James Version of the Holy Bible is to be used in our pulpits and schools in English-speaking countries.
The Blood Atonement
Whereas the Word of God speaks clearly and unequivocally about the shed blood of Christ and the sprinkling of the blood of Christ,
Whereas the Roman Catholic Church speaks of an unbloody sacrifice, the mass, the cults deny the shedding of the blood of Christ as efficacious; the liberal theologians call the teaching of the blood atonement a slaughterhouse religion,
Whereas those who some regard as religious leaders, such as R.B. Thieme, deny that the blood of Christ is actual, and teach that it is only symbolic and refers only to his death,
Be it resolved that the delegates of the Evangelical Methodist Church proclaim the blood of Christ as real, actual, and is continually cleansing men from all sin. That the Bible teaches that the blood of Christ is sprinkled by faith upon our conscience and that we are cleansed from dead works to serve the true and living God through the blood of the everlasting covenant. (Colossians 1:20, I John 1:7, Revelation 5:9, Revelation 12:11)
