The Light of the World Church establishes three types of principles that govern the lives of its members. Religious, moral and civil. These principles are of guidance only and do not infringe or violate the inalienable rights of every human being.


RELIGIOUS

WE BELIEVE in the existence of God, one universal, as set forth in the book 1st of Kings 8:23 "...there is no God like you, neither up in heaven nor down on earth..."

WE BELIEVE in Jesus Christ, Son of God and Savior of the world, as in the book of Acts 8:37 "...I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God..."
WE BELIEVE as the truth that Jesus Christ was conceived by the intervention of the Holy Spirit in the womb of a holy virgin, blessed, whose name was Maria, as set out in the book of Luke 1:28-35 "And now, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and shalt call his name Jesus..."
WE BELIEVE in the Holy Bible as the only and sufficient rule of faith for salvation of human beings as set out in John 5:39 and 2nd of Timothy 3:16 " All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for conviction, for correction, for instruction of justice..."
WE BELIEVE in the love of God to be called children of Him as set out in 1st of John 3:1 "Behold what manner of love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God..."
WE BELIEVE that the death of Jesus Christ vindicates man with God, and because of that sacrifice mankind is accepted and pleasing to God as set out in the book of John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son..."
WE BELIEVE in the calling of the Servants of God, sent to express the will of God and Salvation. Acts 13:47 "I have made you a light to the gentiles..."
WE ACCEPT the Baptism in water in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins. Acts 2:38 "Repent and baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ..."
WE BELIEVE in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as a confirmation that God gives to man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. John 3:5 "Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born..."
WE BELIEVE in God's plan for salvation of all nations, because God is no respecter of person, race, color, language, political view, or economic status. 1st of Timothy 2:4 "Who will have all men to be saved..."
WE BELIEVE that persuasion, conviction and reason are the strongest base of all creed and Faith. Acts 26:28 "...almost thou persuadest me to be a christian..."
WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ established a Church for those that accepted his calling achieve salvation. John 10:16 "...and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd."
WE PROCLAIM the second coming of Christ to reward each one according to his works. Luke 21:27 "And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory."

 

MORAL

WE RECOGNIZE the free will of man as a guiding principle of his conduct.

WE ACCEPT sincere, honest, open conversation, which in turn develops our opinion and aptitudes.

WE CONSIDER fanaticism and religious intolerance as constraints for the development of the countries and, therefore, we open our doors to knowledge to eradicate poverty, ignorance, vice and drug addictions.

WE BELIEVE in science as a gift from God, and whose knowledge should serve the larger cause of humanity, favoring the progress and development of the countries.

WE AFFIRM that every person has the right to freedom of thought, so they can choose the religious beliefs of their liking without having to suffer any threat or injury.

WE CONSIDER that the unnatural rules such as imposing certain marital status, deprivation of property or endangering the integrity of the family is contrary to every ethical-moral principle.

WE RESPECT non-discrimination in the treatment of believers who enjoy the benefits which they deserve under the norms of our Church.

 

CIVIL

WE AFFIRM that, in the exercise of our constitutional guarantees we have the right to integrate into the broader context of society, work, health and education, without discrimination, limits or prejudice of any kind.

WE BELIEVE that the governments are established to administer justice, punishing those who do evil and protecting those that do good as set out in Romans 13:1-5 "Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers..."

WE PRAY for the authorities because it is commandment of God to respect all human institution as set out in 1st of Timothy 2:1-3 "...prayers be made...for all that are in authority..."

WE ARE OBLIGATED as citizens to comply to the laws of each country, to the respect and promotion of the cultures and patriotic symbols.

WE ACCEPT the respect for life as a divine plan.

In conclusion, our principles are summarized in the biblical commandment: "For the rest...all that is true, all that is honest, all that is just, all that is pure, all that is lovely, all that is admirable, if there is any virtue, if anything worthy of praise, think on these things."
