Our Beliefs

written by Parepidemos
Doctrinal Statement
This article lays the foundation for the doctrinal base of all the articles contained in this site, beginning with our position on eternal security and taking you through a logical process to our beliefs on the wonderful grace of God.

Statement of Faith
We at Open Arms Internet Ministry believe that what you believe is very important. While there are many minor issues we consider negotiables in the Christian walk, there are some issues that we must firmly stand together on to be united in the Body of Christ. In our Statement of Faith you can find clearly stated our beliefs on the basics of Christianity.

From the Pastor's Study...

written by Parepidemos
A Practical Biblical Perspective on Sex and Marriage
Our experiences in counseling in the chat rooms led to the creation of this article on what the Bible says about sex and marriage. This is one of the major issues we have faced in our counseling over the past year. Many people who come to us would never sit face to face with a pastor or counselor and reveal many of the difficulties and struggles they face in their marriages. In this article you will find 3 sections: The main introduction, a section written for ladies and a section for the men.
Ye Are Gods?
A doctrine that is becoming more and more prevalent in Christian circles today, especially in the faith movement, is that one day we are to become gods. Is this a biblical doctrine? This article will clarify the error in this teaching and reveal to you what the Bible says on the matter.
Who Are God's Anointed?
Many Christians use the word anointed in various ways today. This article will show you its true meaning and tell you exactly who the Bible says are God's anointed ones.
Are We in a Time of a Great Revival?
What does the Bible say about a great revival in the end times? This article delves into the subject of revival in the church today.
Gifts and Fruit of the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit empowers believers to live godly lives here on earth. This article will explore the gifts that the Spirit gives as well as the fruit of having the Holy Spirit in your life.
Stone Casters and Stone Catchers
Judgment and justice are often separated by a fine line. In this article, we look at the woman caught in adultery in John 8 and see how Jesus combined both judgment and justice in this woman's life.
The Great White Throne Judgment
We are told in Romans 14:10 that we will all stand before God's throne. But are believers and unbelievers judged by the same criteria? Will believers and unbelievers stand beside each other in this judgment? Knowing that there are two judgments, one for the believer and one for the unbeliever, helps us to understand better what role both sin and grace play in the believer's life
Why Does God Allow Evil?
It doesn't take a genius to realize that evil is everywhere in our world today. But God is supposed to be loving and kindhearted. How can He allow such evil to be so prevalent? This article is a must read for all who have struggled with just such a question.

The Female Mind

written by Chalkbrd
I Do Not Set Aside the Grace of God...
Although the song Amazing Grace is sung by thousands of Christians and non-Christians all the time, have you ever stopped to consider just how amazing God's grace is to us? When God's grace truly catches hold of your heart, you will never be the same!

Not to be Grasped
Grasping at godhood has become standard in many so-called "Christian" ministries in our world today. Take a look at the passage from Philippians 2:5-12 and see how this should effect our thinking in this area.

The True Ruler
What is the standard by which all our beliefs and doctrine must be measured? It is the inerrant Word of God, given to us to guide us in every aspect of our lives. Why do we at Open Arms base our counseling and our beliefs on this book instead of personal revelations? This article will give you the answer to that question.
