The Statement of Beliefs of Kraig J. Rice
shared with you by
Kraig J. Rice

I believe that the Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God.

I believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

I believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal future return to this earth in power and glory to rule a thousand years.

I believe in the blessed hope- the rapture of the Church at Christ's coming, and I am pre-trib and pre-mil in my theological persuasion.

I believe the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ.

I believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.

I believe in water baptism by immersion.

I believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the cross also provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer.

I believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it, and that this experience is accompanied by speaking in unknown tongues as God the Holy Spirit gives utterance.

I believe in the sanctifying power of God the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life.

I believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation in hell fire.

What do I believe about Jesus Christ? He is God the Son in the Holy Trinity. What do I believe about salvation? One is saved by grace through faith. Jesus paid it all by His blood in redemption and one must accept this free gift of salvation from Him. There is no other way to be saved.

I am pretrib and premil in my theological persuasion. What do those words mean? Pretrib is just a fancy word that stands for pretribulation. That means that I believe the rapture of the church will take place before the Great Tribulation Period of seven years in our future. Premil is just another fancy word that stands for premillennium. This simply means that Christ will literally come to the earth in His Second Advent after the Great Tribulation Period of time and rule the world from Jerusalem for one thousand years or a millennium of time. Then there will be the end of the world as we know it. Many Christian conservatives hold to these beliefs.


What do I believe about creation? I believe in a revised gap theory where God originally created a perfect world four and one half billion years ago. He had all kinds of plant and animal life here at that time. Then Satan was cast to this earth after the war in Heaven and literally destroyed this planet (darkness was upon the deep or here). Then God had to re-create it in seven literal twenty four hour days to make it habitable for modern mankind, as well as for any recent plants and animals.

What do I believe about the soul? The human body or soul is the exterior of a person. The spirit of a person lives on the inside or interior of a person. Some bible writers have interchanged the words "soul" and "spirit" to describe this. This spirit can be dead to Christ or alive to Christ. This spirit is also life. When the spirit leaves a body in death, so does the life. Your spirit is the real essence of who you really are- the part of you that will live eternally.


What is my theological persuasion? Do I believe in eternal security? Yes, to a point. I believe you are sealed until the day of redemption and you can have security in your salvation. But I believe that there is an exception to this rule. God is not going to save you, in the end, if you command Him to get out of your heart and then choose Satan as your god
(Hebrews 6:4-6). Not to believe this exception, in my opinion, is to deny to each individual the right of free choice. Otherwise, one is just a mindless robot and God did not create any robots that I know of.
