Open Door Missions International
Open Door Missions International, Inc. was founded by Donna (Norris) Nash in September, 2005. It is a beautiful testimony to God's divine leading. Anyone in a God-ordained ministry knows the battle that never ceases to rage over its existence, growth and ultimate destiny. You have our prayers and we cherish yours for us.
Jesus said in John 17:18, "As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me,"
God bless whosoever reads and BELIEVES these words of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
What We Believe...
THE SHORT OF IT...
Everything God says about Himself from Genesis to Revelation, whether we understand it or not!
THE LONG OF IT...
God is the only true God, expressed in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son-Word made Flesh, and God the Holy Spirit.
(John 1:14, 17:3; I John 5:7)
The Holy Bible in its entirety is the infallible truth and nature of God. It is the only ABSOLUTE in the earth! Man cannot decipher every mystery or agree to disagree on them, but God's perfect plan was, is, and will be accomplished.
(Matthew 4:4; Mark 13:31; Luke 24:27; II Timothy 3:16)
The Lord Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and lived a sinless life. He IS the Gospel! He performed miracles, was crucified, died, was buried, descended into hell, was resurrected by God, ascended into heaven; and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father. He is truly God and truly man.
(Matthew 1:20-21; John 3:16; Acts 4:10; I Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:15, 10:12; 1 Peter 3:18-19)
Through the precious Blood of Jesus Christ, repentance and faith are the only means by which man can be saved;
(Mark 6:12; Luke 3:3, 7:50; Romans 5:1; Ephesians 2:8-9 )
And that regeneration of our spirit, by the Holy Spirit, must take place.
(John 3:1-8; 1 Peter 1:23; Titus 3:5)
We believe in the sanctifying power of the Word of God and His Holy Spirit, who dwells in every Believer, to live a holy life; with clean hands and a pure heart.
(Philippians 2:13; Hebrews 12:14; Psalm 24:4; Romans 6:3-14)
The Redemptive work of Christ on the Cross provides divine healing, through faith, in the name of Jesus Christ.
(James 5:14-15; I Peter 2:24; Exodus 15:25-26)
We believe in the salvation experience of being “born again” (John 3:3-6); in water baptism as a symbol of a believer’s dedication and obedience to Christ (Acts 2:38); in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, apart from the “New Birth” (Acts 19:1-7); In the gifts of the Spirit (Acts 2:4; 1 Corinthians 12:7-11); and the fruit of the Spirit made manifest in the Believers life (Galatians 5:22-23).
This list is by no means exhaustive. However, to summarize our beliefs, we choose to quote Jesus’ own words from John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Whatever Jesus said, we believe. Whatever Jesus said do, we pursue with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.
