Christian News & Views Statement of Faith
"Earnestly Contending for the Faith" has become a forgotten doctrine confined to the yellowing pages of neglected statements of faith. We must judge others, myself included, by what they preach to see if it coincides with their statements of faith.
WE BELIEVE the Bible to be the divinely inbreathed, infallible, inerrant and authoritative Word of God.
WE BELIEVE that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons; God the Father, God the Word, and God the Holy Ghost.
WE BELIEVE in the virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, His unqualified deity, His sinless humanity and perfect life, the eternal all-sufficiency of His atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father's right hand, His personal future return to this earth in power and glory to rule a thousand years.
WE BELIEVE in the Blessed Hope - the Rapture of the Church at Christ's coming.
WE BELIEVE that justification is a judicial act of God on the believer's behalf solely on the merits of Christ, and that regeneration by the power of the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.
WE BELIEVE in Christ's Lordship of the Church, the observance of the ordinances of Christian baptism by immersion for believers and the Lord's Supper.
WE BELIEVE in the eternal blessedness of the redeemed in heaven and the eternal doom of the unregenerate in the lake of fire.
