What We Believe

What We Believe

Here at Faith we believe and teach that...

  • The Bible is the inspired Word of God and is accurate in scientific, historical, and geographic matters as well as in spiritual matters  (John 17:17, 2 Peter 1:21). 
  • Human beings are by nature sinful and rebellious against God, unable and unwilling to do God's will as revealed in the Bible  (Psalm 51:5, Romans 7:18). 
  • God is holy and cannot tolerate sin; He will punish sinners with eternal suffering  (Psalm 5:4-5, Ezekiel 18:4, James 2:10). 
  • At the same time God is loving; He sent His Son Jesus Christ to live and die for the sins of the entire world (John 3:16, Romans 3:23-24, Romans 6:23, 1 John 1:7). 
  • Jesus rose physically from the dead and now lives and rules eternally. He will come back to judge everyone who has ever lived (Ephesians 1:20-21, Acts 17:31, 1 Corinthians 15:20).
  • God brings us the blessings that Jesus won for us through His Word, and through the Sacraments of baptism (Matthew 28:19) and the Lord’s Supper (Matthew 26:26-29). Through these means the Holy Spirit works and strengthens faith in us.
  • Whoever believes in Jesus and is baptized will be saved and live eternally in glory; whoever does not believe will be condemned eternally  (Mark 16:16, John 3:36 and 14:6, Acts 4:12). 

For God

so loved the world

that He gave

His only begotten Son

that whoever believes in Him

should not perish

but have everlasting life.

John 3:16
