Tenets of Foundation Church of
the New Birth
As Revealed in the contents of
True Gospel Revealed Anew by Jesus, Vols. I-IV.
We Believe that the soul of man is
the same, in this world and in the next; and that, with physical death, man,
manifesting a spirit body, enters the spirit world to exist therein; and that
his soul will continue to be purified, in time to come, until he reaches that
plane in the spirit world called Paradise, or the Sphere of the Perfect Man.
We Believe that there is a Sphere
beyond that of the Perfect Man, where human souls have reached a state of
perfection and purification beyond which they can no longer aspire, and that
this Sphere, the Celestial Heavens, is open to those souls who seek the Divine
Love of the Heavenly Father. This Divine Love, bestowed upon man in response to
earnest prayer, not merely purifies his human soul but transforms it into the
Essence of the Father, so that the soul is aware of, and in possession of,
immortality. This is the salvation that Jesus taught as the Messiah of the
Father, in contradistinction to the perfect human soul, as taught by Moses.
We Believe that the true mission of
Jesus, as the Christ, was to teach the Jews and all humanity the fact that,
with his own soul as evidence, the Father's Love had been made available to
mankind, and that immortality now resides in the soul's obtaining the Father's
Divine Love through prayer to Him for Its possession. The potentiality of
receiving this Love had been lost with the fall of our first parents.
We Believe that the divinity of
Jesus was made manifest in his divine soul, which became divine on earnest
prayer to the Father throughout the hidden years of his life, until he at last
realized what his mission was; and that the Divine Love may now enter the soul
of whosoever seeks It in earnest prayer and thereby receives It, through the
ministrations of the Holy Spirit--that energy of the Father which conveys His
Love into the human soul.
We Believe that Jesus was thus born
of Mary and Joseph in accordance with God's law for the reproduction of
humankind, yet born of the Holy Spirit in the sense that it was this agency
which brought so much of the Father's Love into Jesus' soul that he realized it
was like unto the Father's in Essence, and knew that in that way he was the
We Believe that such rebirth of the
human soul into a Divine soul, as first experienced by Jesus through prayer to
the Father for His Love, is the true meaning of the New Birth and the New Heart
promised to mankind by God through the prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel.
We Believe in God, the Father, as a
real, personal God, the Creator Soul, composed of Divine Love as His Essence,
and all the wonderful Divine Virtues such as Goodness, Mercy, Kindness,
Compassion and Patience, and eager to have His children turn to Him in earnest
prayer to obtain His Love, so that their souls can be changed from human souls,
the reflection of the Father's Soul, into Divine souls filled to abundance with
His Love and Essence through prayer to Him, in this world and in the next,
throughout all eternity.
We Believe that God is One, Unique
and Alone, and not divided, as some religious cults believe, into three
personalities. God is Soul, and Soul is God, Who has never appeared in the
flesh in any guise or form, nor has ever manifested a spirit body, the vestment
of the human soul after the death of the physical body. God is the Living
Personality Divine, our Eternal Father in Heaven, Who is ever seeking the good
and happiness of His children, and Whom the human soul may know through the
soul perceptions awakened by faith, prayer, and the inflowing of the Divine
We Believe that sin is a violation
of God's Laws of Perfect Harmony, the penalty for which must be paid by man on
entry into the spirit world, where, now a spirit and subject to God's spiritual
laws, his abode therein is determined by the condition of his soul. Hence, the
evil soul dwells in a place of suffering and darkness as it goes through a
period of expiation until it achieves purity. The achievement of such purity is
forgetfulness, or what has been called forgiveness. No soul purity may be
achieved through any vicarious atonement, or shedding of blood, the relic of
barbarous practices among primitive men, but only as man realizes his errors
and, repentant, seeks reconciliation with the Father through prayer and
undergoes the period of purification.
We Believe that the condition of man's soul is not fixed forever at the time of his death in the flesh, as taught by some churches, but that whether on earth or as a spirit, the soul may at any time turn to God and seek to be purified of sin, and that the great help in purification, and, indeed, in the converting of the human soul and its imperfections into a Divine soul like unto that of God in Essence, is through earnest prayer to the Father for His Divine Love and Mercy, so that the soul achieves at-onement with God and a place in His Kingdom, the Celestial Heavens, of which Jesus, the Messiah, is Master and Prince of Peace.
