Our Beliefs

Milan Christian Church is part of the Restoration Movement. The main focus of the movement is to restore the New Testament church in the 21st century. This restoration is possible by going back to the Bible and using it as the only source for our core of beliefs.

Milan Christian Church understands that in order to effectively interpret the Scriptures, one must utilize the correct tools of interpretation.

 

Author Intended Meaning:

        The first one of these tools it to interpret the text in accordance with the author's intended meaning. Once a writer was inspired by the Lord to write a book, he had a specific message with an intended meaning. To interpret Scripture correctly, one must find that meaning in the scriptures. 

 

Context:

It is important to read and understand the context of a passage before one comes to a conclusion on a verse. Sometimes it is important to understand the context of the verse, the chapter, and even the context of the book.

 

Circumstances:

The circumstances under which a text or a book was written will also help us to understand the author's intended meaning.

 

Language:

It is helpful to understand that the Bible was not written in English in its original form. Sometimes to have knowledge of the original language will help the interpretation of certain passages.

 

With these in mind, please allow us to share with you our beliefs in some specific areas:

 

Bible

Milan Christian Church believes the Bible to be the word of God. It was written by men who were inspired by God to write and express His message to the people, 2. Tim 3:16-17.

The word of God is light to the world, food to the hungry, a guide to the lost, and life to the lost.

It is powerful, Heb 4:13-14. The word of God is the source of unity, John 17. It sanctifies the sinner, John 17:17-18. It produces faith Romans 10:17 

God

This is not a definition of who God is, but a simple description of what we understand the Bible to say about Him; a simple description.

God is the Father; He is first member of the trinity, the creator of the world. God is omnipresent, omniscient, and all-powerful. He had no beginning or end. He is.  

Jesus

Jesus is God incarnate, John 1:14. He was a man and He was God. He is also the Savior of the world. Only through Him there is salvation. Through His sacrifice in the cross, we enjoy forgiveness of sin and a relationship with God. Jesus is the mediator between God and man. He is our advocate with the Father, 1. John 2:1. 

 

Holy Spirit

The third member of the trinity is the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. He knows the most intimate parts of God, 1. Cor 2:11. The Holy Spirit inspired the Scriptures, lives in every believer, is a person, and the Bible shows that it behaves as such.
