Statement of Faith
Statement of Faith – Advance India
I believe the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error; the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men and the Divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.
I believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
I believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man, conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. He arose bodily from the dead, and He is now at the right hand of the Majesty on high.
I believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and it is His work to convict men, regenerate the sinner, and indwell and empower the believer for Godly living and service.
I believe that man was created in the image of God, but, fell into sin and is therefore lost, and only through regeneration can salvation and eternal life can be attained.
I believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe and only those who receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God.
I believe in the personal and imminent coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and that this coming has an important bearing on the personal life of the believer.
I believe in the bodily resurrection of the believer to everlasting fellowship and joy
