Mission Statement: 

Keswick?s mission is to provide programs, retreats, and educational events that proclaim Christ and advance a Christian worldview, that those who attend might come to personal faith in Christ, be educated according to biblical moral principles, and commit themselves to lives of Christian leadership and service.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

1. We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament as inspired by God and inerrant in the original writings, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.
2. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
3. We believe that man and woman were created in the image of God: that they sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death, but spiritual death which is separation from God; that all human beings are born in sin and that this sinful nature is the origin of all sinful acts in thought, word, and deed.
4. We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and was both fully God and fully man.
5. We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice.
6. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of Jesus Christ, in His ascension into Heaven, and in His present ministry for us, as High Priest, and Advocate.
7. We believe in the personal return of Jesus Christ.
8. We believe that all who receive, by faith, Jesus Christ, are justified on the basis of His shed blood, born again of the Holy Spirit, and thereby become children of God.
9. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the saved and the unsaved; the saved to the everlasting presence of God and the unsaved to everlasting separation from God.
