About Remnant Life Network & What We Believe
The tagline of Remnant Life Network is "Control Your Atmosphere" which is much more than a phrase or tagline. Families everywhere are looking for ways to control their surroundings in their life and their family's life. We're trying to do just that where we want to give you and your family options in entertainment.
Finally over the last several years we have been given quality content that is being produced that Christians look forward to watching. Far too many years we have settled for the sake that its "Christian" so we have to support it, and now we're given real options with quality films.
Our goal with Remnant Life Network is to give concerned families a gateway at one source to watch, interact, and share quality entertainment for their families and friends which is only part 1 of our vision.
Part 2 of our vision is to showcase up and coming movers in the entertainment industires. An example of this is in our Music Video channel. Where not only do we want you to see regular music videos that would be in the Christian top 40, but along side these bring you what really is happening in the current industry with underground artists, starting artisits, and many who might remain local artists.
Over the years our founder has seen just how much potential has been lost to the world, or just lost in general by not fitting the "mold" which usually had been the tradition. This has set the stage for the future of Remnant Enterprises and now Remnant Life Network. We are kingdom minded, and strive to help usher in the UNITY of the God's church; not a peticular denomination, but the kingdom. Together we can accomplish great things for the King, so let's work together to kingdom minded. We encoruage all pastors and members to reach out to your neighbor churches and work together. This is the idea behind the "Community" where you'll be able to share with one another, get resources, and just connect with many ministry opportunities.
Remnant's Doctrinal Statement
The Bible is the verbally inspired, infallible, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God without error in the original writings, and the supreme and final authority in doctrine and practice.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 - 2 Peter 1:21 - John 17:17
We believe there is one God in three persons, the Father and the Son and the Spirit are each God, and that the Father and the Son and the Spirit are each a distinct person.
Genesis 1:1 & 26 - Deuteronomy 6:4 - Matthew 28:19-20 - 2 Corinthians 13:14 - 1 Corinthians 8:6 - Colossians 2:9 - Acts 5:3-4
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God, fulfill prophecy, and redeem sinful man. He came to be subject to this word, live wholly devoted and perfected to God, died on a cross for our sins, and rose again on the 3rd day for our salvation in Him.
John 1:1, 14, 18, 14:6 - Luke 1:35 - Romans 3:24-26, 4:25 - Acts 4:12 - Philippians 2:5-8 - 1 Timothy 2:5
The Holy Spirit
We believe God the Holy Spirit is a person who restrains evil in the world and convicts men of sin, righteousness, and judgment. He dwells in all who believe in Jesus. The Spirit baptizes believers into the body, seals them for salvation, makes us a new creation transformed, and gives spiritual gifts on each one.
John 16:7-11 - John 3:8, 14:16-17 - 1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 13 - 1 Thessalonians 5:19 - Ephesians 4:30, 5:18
We believe Satan, by his own choice the enemy of God and His people, is the originator of sin, that led our first parents into sin and now rules as "the god of this world." We believe he was judged at the cross and that ultimately he will be cast into the Lake of Fire.
Isaiah 14:12-14 - Genesis 3:1-19 - Hebrews 2:14 - Revelation 20:10
Angels, Fallen and Unfallen
We believe angels are spiritual beings who were created as sinless personalities and that they occupy different orders and ranks. They presently exist in both fallen and unfallen states, the former including Satan and his angels. We believe this is a super-natural between the Fallen and Unfallen Angels going on until the Lords Returns again. Demonic forces have been controlling the society since the fall of Adam, but “Greater is God than the enemy of this world.”
Hebrews 1:13-14 - 2 Peter 2:4 - Revelation 7:12
We believe man was created innocent and in the image and likeness of God, but that man sinned, bringing both physical and spiritual death to himself and his posterity. We believe that mankind’s sinful nature is rebellious toward God, causes confusion about good and evil, and harm to people, ultimately ending in judgment, despair and death.
Genesis 1:27 & 31, 2:17, 3:19 - Romans 3:23 - Galatians 5:16-21 - 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 - James 1:13-15
Man can do nothing to merit God’s favor, and as such, is in need of salvation and a Savior.
Isaiah 59:1-2 - Romans 6:23
We believe salvation is a sovereign gift of God and is received by man through personal faith in Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for sin. We believe man is justified by grace, an unearned gift, through faith apart from works. We believe that Jesus Christ is the only means of salvation and that no one is saved apart from a conscious and personal decision to trust in Christ as his or her one and only Savior. We believe all true and transformed believers of the one true God, once saved and transformed, are kept in Christ forever. We do not believe we as believers have a free path to openly sin because we have free grace as this is rebellion against God, and therefore true transformation has not happened. When we are transformed to a new creature in Christ we can no longer tollerate sin in our own life, and although we may stumble we will always press on to a transformed life in Christ.
Acts 13:38-39 - Romans 6:23 - Ephesians 1:4-5, 2:8-10 - John 3:16, 10:27-30, 14:6 - Acts 4:12 - Romans 10:9-10 - Romans 8:1, 29-30, 38-39
We believe the Church is one family, the Body and Bride of Christ, is a spiritual organism, made up of all born-again persons of this present age. We believe the Church began at Pentecost and that a believer is placed into the Church by the baptizing work of the Holy Spirit. We believe that all believers should attend a local Biblically-based church for strengthening, nuturing, ministiry, and serving together. Our platfrom is never meant to be a replacement to the local church, but only an extension of it or to find a local church via the Remnant Church Directory. The Church is where true diversity should and must happen without being forced (see more in the Diversity & Justice section).
Acts 2:4-47 - Ephesians 1:22-23 - 1 Corinthians 12:13,10:32 - 1 Corinthians 1:1-2 - Ephesians 4:11-13 - Matthew 16:18,28:19-20
We believe by water baptism a believer publicly identifies with Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection. We believe that infants of believing parents may be dedicated to the Lord but should not be baptized until they can personally articulate their faith and the purpose of baptism.
The End of Times
We believe in the personal, imminent coming of the Lord Jesus Christ for the Church. This event, commonly called the rapture, and will culminate in the visible and bodily return of Jesus Christ to the earth, commonly called the Second Coming, to rule the nations and establish His millennial kingdom.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 - Philippians 3:20 - Matthew 24:15-31 - Zechariah 14:4-11 - Revelation 19:11-21, 20:1-6
We believe all people will live forever either in Heaven or in a Lake of Fire commonly referred o as Hell. We believe the souls of believers in Jesus Christ do, at death, immediately pass into His presence, and there remain with Him until the resurrection of our earthly bodies at His coming for the Church, when our souls and imperishable bodies shall be with Him forever in glory. We believe the souls of unbelievers remain after death in constant misery in Hades until the final judgment of the Great White Throne at the close of the millennium when soul and body reunited shall be cast into the Lake of Fire, not to be annihilated, but to be punished with everlasting separation from the presence of the Lord.
Luke 16:19-26, 23:43 - 1 Corinthians 15:42-44 - 2 Corinthians 5:8 - Philippians 1:23 - 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9 - Revelation 20:11-15
We believe the Lord's Supper is a memorial of Christ's death and an expression of our faith in His future coming that is to be continually practiced by all believers. Communion should be practiced only by those who are born-again believers who walk in fellowship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 11:23-29
Diversity & Justice
The Church is where true diversity should and must happen without being forced. Racism, injustice, decrimination, or bullying should never be practice by anyone who professes to Chistian. We believe that any sin that society deems to be good is not descrimination if the church takes bold stance against this sin. We also believe that the church must love everyone regardless of the sin they are living in, but cannot tolerate a sinful life. We believe that the church must take a bold stance against racism. We we believe that the church must stand against true injustice of any kind.
Galatians 3:28 - John 7:24 - Romans 2:11 - John 13:34 - James 2:9 - Ephesians 4:32
We believe that all human life is sacred from fertilization throughout the entire natrual human life; and must be protecte whether healthy, unhealthy or in need. We believe that abortion is not only a violation to God’s law and order, but is a modern version of Baal worship.
Jeremiah 1:5 - Matthew 25:34-40
Marriage & Home
We believe that God has established marriage as a lifelong, exclusive relationship between ONE MAN and ONE WOMAN. All intimate sexual activity outside of the convenant of marriage whether heterosexual, homosexual, or any other imaginable difference than how God intended is immoral and a sin, period. Even if the government dictates that marriage can be between 2 men, 2 woman, and will soon be an adult and child, people and machines, and other imaginable is a violation of God’s order and law. Marriage was setup between God and Man in the Garden of Eden, and therefore the Governments of this world have no juristriction as this violates “Seperation of Church and State!”
We believe that God created all of the human race since Adam and Eve, and maintained humans since the flood through Noah, his wife, and family. God created MALE and FEMALE in His image, and stops at ONLY MALE and FEMALE! We also believe that no one has the right to change their gender to anything outside their gender at birth, and to do so is immoral and an absolute sin.
Genesis 1:27 - Jeremiah 1:5
We believe that sin is anything outside of God’s order and law. Deliberate sin is rebellion toward God and must not ever be in a true believers life. We have all have fallen short of the glory of God and have sinned, and yet this does not allow a free pass to a sinful life. All intimate sexual activity outside of the convenant of marriage whether heterosexual, homosexual, or any other imaginable difference than how God intended is immoral and a sin, period. We believe that anyone whether believer or unbeliever who will not take a bold stand against sin violate the core definition of God’s order, and therefore is guilty of sin.
We believe truth is not and can not ever be “relative” as society loves to quote when wanting their own way apart from God. Truth is always now and will always be Absolute, and based in God and His order and law.
