Jehovah's Witnesses Beliefs

Summary | Beliefs | In-depth Beliefs | Compare 

God
God is Jehovah, who sent Christ, Jesus to earth to perform the ransom sacrifice. God is the leader
of  the Jehovah’s Witnesses and of no other people on earth.  God’s primary purpose is to vindicate his name.
Holy Ghost
The Holy Spirit is not a person as Jehovah God and Jesus Christ are.  The Holy Spirit is God’s active force.
Holy Trinity
Jehovah God and Jesus Christ are two separate and distinct persons.  They are not combined with the so-called “Holy Ghost” in one Godhead commonly called “The Trinity”.
Atonement
The purpose of Christ’s life was to vindicate God’s name by witnessing of God’s kingdom. The vindication of God’s name is more important than the salvation of man.  Vindicate – to clear of guilt or to justify.
Baptism
By immersion, in lake or river, no fonts in Kingdom Hall. Symbolizes being dead to old way of life. Baptism does not cleanse from sin. No infants.
Did Christ Organize a Church while on the Earth?
Witnesses have been around for 6000 years even to this day and are the only true faith.  One must be a member to be saved.  Christ was one in a long line of Witnesses.
Miracles
The miracles of the past as recorded in the Holy Bible were very real. But today there is no need for miracles. The biggest miracle today is the increase in the church membership worldwide.
Probable Future Status Of Non-Believers in Christ
Unrepentant sinners, along with the devil and his angels, will just “cease to exist.” There is no hell, or place of punishment, because all of these wicked will be destroyed at Armageddon.
Pre-Existence of Man
Christ had what is called a “pre-human” existence as a spirit person, was born a mortal man, and does not have an immortal soul.  Our personal existence begins with our birth.
