We think that it is imperative that we as a ministry share our statement of faith with you so that you will always have an upfront and honest view of what we believe in our hearts and confess with our mouths. This statement of faith is based on a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and does not stem from the basis of religion. The relationship component of this ministry’s faith will never be argued, however we are built from a place of love and respect for anyone wishing to know more. It is not our place to judge, but to be available to love as Jesus loved and be the hands and feet we were called to be. (John 13:34)
GOD: We believe in the Power and Authority of God existing in three persons as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe God alone created all, sustains all and rules over all. There is none above Him, not one. (Reference Genesis 1:1, 26, 27)
JESUS CHRIST: We believe Jesus Christ is Gods son. That God sent his son into the world by virgin birth to live a blameless life yet die a sinner’s death (by crucifixion) making it possible for eternal security for all men who believe with their heart and confess with their mouth. We believe that Jesus rose on the third day showing Gods victory and power over death. We believe Jesus will return to earth again to reign forever in Christs second coming. (Reference Matthew 1:22; Isaiah 9:6 Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14-15)
HOLY SPIRIT: We believe in the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. He is co-equal with the Father (God) and the Son (Jesus Christ). He works to make the individual aware of their need for Jesus Christ. We believe that the Spirit is a gift that lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. The Spirit provides Christians with discernment for daily living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance for effective witnessing to others. (References 2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; 14:16- 17; Acts 1:8; Ephesians 1:13; 5:18; 1 Corinthians 2:12; 3:16; Galatians 5:25)
HUMANITY: We believe that “sin” entered the world at the fall of man (Eve taking the bite of the apple), we are all born in the spiritual image of God, yet we are separated by a natural attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin”. Sin separates us from God. (Reference Genesis 1:27) PERSONAL
SALVATION: We believe in what Romans 10:9-10 states “If you declare with your mouth “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” Eternal Life begins at the moment we confess with our mouths and believe in our hearts that Jesus Christ is who he said he was. (Reference John 3:16)
ETERNITY: We believe we were created to be with God and live eternally with God, yet with the fall of man and the entering of sin into the world, we were separated from God. We believe we have a choice (freewill) to live with God in Heaven by means of salvation (see personal salvation), or apart from God (Hell) through lack of salvation and guilt of sin. (References Matthew 25:46; John 3:16; 2:25; 1 John 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Hebrews 7:24; Revelation 20:15)
BIBLE: We believe that this book is God’s revelation breathed and supernaturally translated through man’s written abilities given by God. The Old Testament gives way to Gods Power and Authority in all and over all and the New Testament was the fulfillment of salvation through the life of Jesus. We believe this book is relevant yesterday, today, and forever, as its Gods communication with man. (References John:1; Psalm 119: 105, 160; Proverbs 30:5)
The Holy Spirit
Because eternal life is based on the gift of God to sinful persons through grace, the believer in Christ is secure in that salvation for all eternity.
Our salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. The Christian’s life of righteousness is motivated by God’s grace, not by fear of losing salvation.
John 10:28-29; 2 Timothy 1:2; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10, 14; 1 Peter 1:3-5
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. He is also referred to in scripture as the Spirit of
Jesus. He is co-equal with the Father and the Son. He works to make persons aware
of their need for Jesus Christ.
He lives in every Christian from the moment ofsalvation. He provides Christians with power for daily living, understanding of spiritual truth, and power for effective witnessing to others. The Christian is commanded to liveunder the Spirit’s control every day.
2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; Ephesians 1:13; 5:18; 1
Corinthians 2:12; 3:16; Galatians 5:25
The Bible is the written record of God’s revelation of Himself to man, coming to fulfillment in the person of Jesus Christ. The Bible was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.
It the perfect source of instruction for knowing God and living the Christian life.
2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119: 105, 160; 12: 6; Proverbs 30:5
