ABOVE RUBIES STATEMENT OF FAITH
- We believe in the Holy Scriptures. We believe the whole Bible, the Old and the New Testaments, to be the infallible and inspired Word of God. We believe the Bible is the final authority on every subject for all mankind.
- We believe that there is only one God who exists eternally in three persons–the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
- We believe that God is Omnificent (all-creating), Omnipresent (all-being and all-present), Omniscient (all-knowing), Omnipotent (all-powerful) and Omnibenevolent (all-loving and all-good).
- We believe in the divinity of Jesus Christ. We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God. We believe in His virgin birth. We believe that he died, was buried, and rose again for our sins and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
- We believe that all men are sinful by nature and need to be born again through Jesus Christ and His blood that was shed on the cross for our sins. We believe that salvation is by grace, through faith, and not of our own works.
- We believe in the continuing ministry of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer to enable him/her to live a godly life and reveal Christ to this world.
- We believe in the second coming of Jesus Christ. He is the firstfruits of all who will rise again.
- We believe in a future eternal life, a bodily resurrection, and eternal judgment.
- We believe that God is the giver of life and therefore life must be held as sacred and precious. We believe that life begins at conception and therefore do not agree with abortion in any manner (including abortifacient birth control pills). We believe that the devil is the one who comes to “steal, kill and to destroy.” We believe that if we condone the killing of the unborn, we side with the devil and his wicked strategies.
ABOVE RUBIES STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
- Our purpose is to strengthen and encourage marriage, motherhood and family life. We want to encourage, inspire, uphold, undergird, support, reinforce, fortify and build up mothers in their divine calling of motherhood.
- Our purpose is to expose the deceptions of the mindset of this world and reveal God’s truth, according to the principles of His Word.
- Our purpose is to obey the mandate that is given to older women in Titus 2:3-5 to teach and show the way to the younger mothers – “to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good and obedient to their own husbands.” We believe that God has ordained the older women to teach these truths to the younger women.
- Our purpose is to reach all women and all families, regardless of their faith, and denomination, with this message. We do not get involved in doctrinal issues, but keep only to the matters that God has told the older women to teach the younger women. This goes beyond all barriers of denominations.
