What Denominations Believe...

The belief of any denomination is central to their doctrine such as;

The Nicene Creed (325) or profession of faith which says;

We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, begotten of the Father [the only-begotten; that is, of the essence of the Father, God of God], Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father;


Missing is what happens when someone is saved and dies. The popular belief is that we go to heaven (is it a denominational heaven?). Why does Peter say this of King David a man after God's heart and that Jesus is the only one to ascend to heaven?

Acts 2:29-35

"Brothers, I can tell you confidently that the patriarch David died and was buried, and his tomb is here to this day. But he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would place one of his descendants on his throne. Seeing what was ahead, he spoke of the resurrection of the Christ, that he was not abandoned to the grave, nor did his body see decay. God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of the fact. Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear. For David did not ascend to heaven, and yet he said,

"The Lord said to my Lord:

"Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet."

So the big question is are the souls of men immortal?

I say NO because we did not eat from The Tree of Life but only from The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. And that eating from that tree has caused us to try to derive life from it, through denominational divergence, ever since. "Denominational Divergence" is sin that can be drawn back to the very beginning of sin in our world at the fall of man.

Consider; John 3:13-15

No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man. Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.

Please notice the everyone who believes in Him, may have eternal life, it does not assure it. For without repentance, there is no salvation. The Law makes you aware of your sin, the Son sets you free.

Consider what the Apostle James says; "You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder/tremble. Our belief, our faith and our Christian Walk must be more then that of demons. If it is to be believable by those that are watching for they will know we are Christians by our LOVE...


The Lord bless and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
And give you peace.
