Open Bible History Open Bible Churches is an international family of Spirit-empowered churches committed to glorifying God and fulfilling the 'Great Commission' of Jesus Christ by making and releasing disciples, planting churches, and sending missionaries.
Open Bible Standard Churches originated from two revival movements: Bible Standard Conference, founded in Eugene, Oregon, under the leadership of Fred Hornshuh in 1919, and Open Bible Evangelistic Association, founded in Des Moines, Iowa, under the leadership of John R. Richey in 1932. Similar in doctrine and government, the two groups amalgamated in 1935, as "Open Bible Standard Churches" with the national office located in Des Moines, Iowa.
Historical roots of the parent groups reach back to the outpourings of the Holy Spirit in 1906 at Azusa Street Mission in Los Angeles and to the full gospel movement in the Midwest. Both groups were organized under the impetus of Pentecostal revival. Simple faith, freedom from fanaticism, emphasis on evangelism and missions and free fellowship with other groups were characteristics of the growing organizations.
There are over 46,000 members in 371 Open Bible congregations and over 1100 licensed or ordained ministers in the United States. Additionally, there are over 45,000 members in over 700 international congregations.
The Bible - We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible authoritative Word of God.
The Trinity - We believe that there is one God eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
Jesus Christ - We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His victorious and atoning sacrifice through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.
Salvation - We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
Holy Living - We believe that the full gospel includes holiness of heart and life, healing for the body and baptism in the Holy Spirit with the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.
The Holy Spirit - We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.
Final Judgement - We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
Fellowship - We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
