GAMELIFE BELIEF & CORES VALUES
The Bible is the inspired Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16) the written record of His supernatural revelation of Himself to mankind, absolute in it’s authority, complete in its revelation, final in its content, and without any errors in its teachings.
All men in their natural state are lost, alienated from God, spiritually dead: “All have sinned, all fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
Salvation is only by grace, a free gift of God through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, who died for our sins according to the
Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3). Those who thus receive Christ by faith have their sins forgiven (Ephesians 1:7), their hearts cleansed (Acts 15:9), are born of the Spirit, become children of God (John 1:12, 13), and are made new creatures in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17).
God is One God, Who reveals Himself in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ, as the Scriptures affirm, is the Son of God and Son of Man, was born of a virgin, and is Himself very God. The Scriptures also declare the deity and personality of the Holy Spirit.
Our Lord Jesus Christ rose from the dead in the same body that was laid to rest in the tomb (John 20:25-27). The bodies of all believers who die will be raised from the dead, and they will receive an incorruptible body like unto the glorious body the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:53; Philippians 3:21). All other men shall be raised unto “the resurrection of judgment” (John 5:28, 29).
Christians, born of the Spirit, are to live the new life in the present power of the Spirit, “If we live by the Spirit, by the Spirit let us also walk” (Galatians 5:16-25; Colossians 2:6). The Christian’s responsibility, and his normal attitude of life, is to yield himself to God (Romans 6:13), trusting God to keep him.
Christian “living” includes Christian service, the winning of souls around us, and the preaching of the Gospel in the uttermost parts of the earth. In the carrying on this work there is needed the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit, which is granted to every believer as he yields and trusts (Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 12:7; Ephesians 3:20; Acts 5:32). And in all this service, prayer is to have the central place ( John 14:12-14; Ephesians 6:18, 19).
Jesus Christ will come again to earth the second time (Hebrews 9:28), personally (Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16), bodily (Acts 1:11; Colossians 2:9), and visibly (Matthew 26:64; Revelation 1:7).
Our Core Values
The Authority Of Scripture
“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Yielded To Christ’s Life Within
“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for
me.” Galatians 2:20
“If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit.” Galatians 5:25
The Priority Of Teaching All Nations
“and in your offspring shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because you have obeyed my voice.” Genesis 22:18
“And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20
The Persistence Of Our Prayers
“I tell you, though he will not get up and give him anything because he is his friend, yet because of his impudence he will rise and give him whatever he needs. 9 And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” Luke 11:8-9
The Practice of Mutual Accountability
“Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.” Proverbs 27:17
The Importance Of Wise Planning
“If the iron is blunt, and one does not sharpen the edge, he must use more strength, but wisdom helps one to succeed.” Ecclesiastes 10:10
“Commit your work to the LORD, and your plans will be established.” Proverbs 16:3
