Organizational Statement of Faith: 

KRMA Statement of Faith

1. We believe in the eternally existing, personal, triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who made all things.
2. We believe in the full Deity and manhood of Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection and His ascension to the right hand of the father where He now acts as Mediator and Advocate.
3. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit whose indwelling in all believers enables them to live Godly lives.
4. We believe that the Holy Bible is a sufficient guide for all men, that it is the inspired Word of God through the activity of the Holy Spirit and that in holy reverence it is our chief authority for living; it is accepted as our final authority and practice.
5. We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the salvation of lost and sinful man and that all who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith will experience repentance and forgiveness of their sins as they are born again as children of God.
6. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and in the necessity of all His followers maintain good works as evidence of faith.
7. We believe that those who accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord become members of the living body of Christ and thereby will seek out, join and participate in a local Church through regular worship of God, have fellowship with the brethren and give dedicated service to all mankind in a sacrificial spirit.
8. We believe that every believer and follower of the Lord Jesus Christ must be responsible for witness by deed and by word, and thereby will be involved in the evangelization of the world, personally and through missionary effort.
9. We believe in disciplined holy living for Jesus that depends upon the inspiration and power given by the Holy Spirit; results in an assurance that our life is now hidden in Jesus Christ; develops a present life of prayer, sacrificial giving and a loving care for others and draws persons to Christ through godly character and light.
10. We believe in the personal return of our Lord Jesus Christ as the fulfillment and vindication of history, that all men are in need of salvation for this life and the next, and that some will know the resurrection of life and a heavenly homecoming, while others will know the final separation from God and the Hell of His lost love and providence.
