October 23 – A Statement of Faith

“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.” I Peter 3:15

Do you know what you believe? Study carefully the basic tenets of your Christian faith, and be ready to give answers to every man that asks you about it.

  1. The Bible is the inspired and infallible authoritative Word of God.
  2. There is one God, eternally manifested in the persons of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  3. Jesus Christ was virgin born. His vicarious death on the cross was an atoning sacrifice through His shed blood. He was bodily resurrected, ascended into heaven, and will personally return in power and glory upon the earth.
  4. Regeneration and conversion through faith in Jesus Christ is absolutely essential for the salvation of lost and sinful humanity.
  5. The Gospel includes holiness of heart and life, healing for the body, and a definite personal experience with the Holy Spirit whereby the gifts of the Spirit become active in the life of the believer.
  6. Believers will be bodily resurrected at the end of time; the just unto eternal reward and the unjust unto eternal damnation.
  7. There is a spiritual unity among all believers through our Lord Jesus Christ.
