WHAT THE R.O.C. BELIEVES
We, the Revelation of Christ (R.O.C.) Church of Los Angeles believe that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God and the Church's only source of authority. Scripture is God's revelation of Himself to man. Jesus Christ is the Word made flesh which dwelt among mankind as the only begotten son of God (John 1:14). No one comes unto the Father, except by Him (John 14:6). The Holy Spirit is the promised Helper that would dwell in the believer and came following Christ's ascension to Heaven following His resurrection as the initiator of the early Church. The Spirit is the guide and teacher of the believer and the guarantee of salvation through Jesus Christ.
We believe that God is one true God (Deuteronomy 6:4) that exists in three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19). He is perfect in every way (Psalm 19:7-9) and perfectly holy (Isaiah 6:3). Man, however, is sinful by nature (Romans 3:23) and worthy of eternal death because of his sins (Romans 6:23a). However, the free gift of eternal life is available to all who repent of their sins and receive Jesus Christ as Lord (Romans 6:23b).
We further believe that salvation is God's free gift to man that is received by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8), and if anyone would confess, believe, and receive Christ's finished work on Calvary, he/she can be saved (Romans 10:9,10) from eternal damnation. For it is "appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment" (Hebrews 9:27). We can receive Christ and reign with Him in Heaven (Matthew 25:34), or reject Him and be condemned to eternal death along with Satan and his fallen angels (Matthew 25:41).
