what we teach


  • We teach the verbal inspiration of all the Scriptures of both the Old and New Testaments, and that they are the final authority in faith and life (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21;; Matthew 5:18; John 6:12-13).
  • We teach there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6:4; II Cor. 13-14)
  • We teach the virgin birth of Christ, and that He is true God and true Man. (John 11-2, 14; Luke 13:14)
  • We teach that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, and that with His shed blood obtained for us an eternal redemption. (Rom. 3:24-25; 1 Peter 2:24; Eph. 1:7)
  • We teach the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, as well as His ascension into heaven, and His present life there as our high priest and advocate. (Acts 1:9-10; Heb. 9:24; 7:25)
  • We teach the imminent, personal and premillennnial return of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Rev. 19:11-16; 20:1-6; I Thess. 1:10, 5:9)
  • We teach the total depravity of all mankind, and the absolute necessity of regeneration. (Gen. 1:26-27; Rom. 3:22-23; 5:12; Eph. 2:1-3, 12)
  • We teach that salvation is the free gift of God, entirely apart from works, and is possessed permanently by all who have by faith received the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. (Eph. 1:7; 1 Peter 1:18-19)
  • We teach that the Holy Spirit is a divine person and that He indwells all believers. We teach that the baptism of the Holy spirit is the sovereign work of God that occurs at the moment of conversion, whereby the Holy Spirit places the believer in the Body of Christ. (John 16:8-11; 11 Cor. 3:6; 1 Cor. 12:12-14; Rom. 8:9; Eph. 1:13)
  • We teach the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost. (Matt. 24:46; John 5:28-29, 11:25-26; Rev. 20:5-6, 12-13; Luke 16:19-26; Matt. 25:41-46)


affiliations

Menifee Bible Church is fully committed to biblical ministry. To that end we voluntarily join hands with IFCA International which is the fellowship of choice for independent churches and organizations, desiring to prayerfully work together in a spirit of interdependence. In that relationship MBC remains and will always remain a totally independent and self-governing local church.


Our affiliation with IFCA allows us a greatly expanded arena for ministry both at home and around the world. Such expansion is realized through cooperative efforts in establishing new churches in the United States; the provision of chaplains for all branches of our military; preaching, teaching and training church leaders around the globe including the former Soviet Union.


In addition, IFCA membership affords us a host of ministry opportunities here in California. Through the Southern California Region of IFCA International we are able to work in concert with other churches in our own state to establish new churches, strengthen existing churches, provide assistance and mediation for churches experiencing difficulties, provide church leaders and members with pertinent ministry tools and information, participate in the sponsoring of an annual Faithful Men's Conference in which hundreds of men have come together for worship, fellowship, prayer, and life changing interaction with God through His Word.
