136​ ​Apologetics​ ​-Statement​ ​of​ ​faith

We​ ​believe​ ​in​ ​God​ ​the​ ​Father​ ​Almighty,​ ​maker​ ​of​ ​heaven​ ​and​ ​earth;​ ​And​ ​in​ ​Jesus Christ​ ​his​ ​only​ ​Son​ ​our​ ​Lord;​ ​who​ ​was​ ​conceived​ ​by​ ​the​ ​Holy​ ​Spirit,​ ​born​ ​of​ ​the Virgin​ ​Mary,​ ​suffered​ ​under​ ​Pontius​ ​Pilate,​ ​was​ ​crucified,​ ​dead​ ​and​ ​buried;​ ​the​ ​third day​ ​he physically​ ​rose​ ​from​ ​the​ ​dead;​ ​he​ ​ascended​ ​into​ ​heaven,​ ​and​ ​sits​ ​at​ ​the​ ​right​ ​hand​ ​of God​ ​the​ ​Father​ ​Almighty;​ ​from​ ​there​ ​he​ ​shall​ ​come​ ​to​ ​judge​ ​the​ living​ ​and​ ​the​ ​dead.

We​ ​believe​ ​in​ ​the​ ​doctrine​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Trinity,​ ​that​ ​there​ ​is​ ​one​ ​Being​ ​who​ ​is​ ​God, comprised​ ​of​ ​three​ ​separate​ ​Persons​ ​(Father,​ ​Son​ ​and​ ​Holy​ ​Spirit),​ ​that​ ​these​ ​three persons​ ​together​ ​comprise​ ​the​ ​one​ ​Eternal​ ​God

We​ ​believe​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Holy​ ​Spirit,​ ​the​ ​holy​ ​worldwide​ ​church,​ ​the​ ​communion​ ​of​ ​the saints,​ ​the​ ​forgiveness​ ​of​ ​sins by grace alone through faith alone,​ ​the​ ​resurrection​ ​of​ ​the​ ​body,​ ​and​ ​the​ ​life​ ​everlasting.

We​ ​believe​ ​that​ ​salvation,​ ​as​ ​described​ ​by​ ​the​ ​bible,​ ​is​ ​by​ ​Faith​ ​alone,​ ​not​ ​by​ ​any merit​ ​or​ ​through​ ​any​ ​works​ ​or​ ​good​ ​deeds,​ ​but​ ​solely​ ​by​ ​the​ ​Grace​ ​of​ ​God​ ​through faith​ ​in​ ​Jesus​ ​Christ

We​ ​believe​ ​the​ ​Old​ ​and​ ​New​ ​Testaments​ ​to​ ​be​ ​the​ ​infallible​ ​Word​ ​of​ ​God;​ ​inerrant​ ​as originally​ ​given,​ ​verbally​ ​inspired​ ​by​ ​God,​ ​the​ ​complete​ ​and​ ​sufficient​ ​revelation​ ​of His​ ​will​ ​for​ ​salvation​ ​and​ ​conduct.

We​ ​believe​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Great​ ​Commission;​ ​to​ ​proclaim​ ​the​ ​Gospel​ ​of​ ​our​ ​Lord​ ​Jesus Christ​ ​to​ ​the​ ​uttermost​ ​parts​ ​of​ ​the​ ​earth.
