Statement of Faith Casa de Fe

Although we do not have space here to fully express our convictions and doctrinal position, the following expresses our statement of faith.

THE TRINITY: We believe in one God, existing in a trinity of persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (John 15:26), who are eternal and have equal dignity and power (Matthew 3:16-17).

THE BIBLE: We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, verbally inspired and without error as originally written, and that it is the only infallible rule of faith and practice for the Christian (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21).

THE PLAN OF SALVATION: We believe in Jesus Christ, conceived of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 1:20) born of the virgin Mary (Luke 1:35), whose death on the cross for the redemption of sinners provided a sufficient and complete propitiation for their guilt (Ephesians 1:7), and who rose again for our justification (Romans 4:25), ascended into heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father, interceding for all those who come unto God by Him (Hebrews 7:25). We wait for the ?blessed hope-the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ? (Titus 2:13), and we believe that all things shall finally be subjected to God through Him (1 Corinthians 15:25-28).

THE CHURCH: We believe that the true church, which is the body of Christ (Ephesians 1:23), is formed by the work of the Holy Spirit in all those who trust Christ as their Savior (Ephesians 2:22, 1 Corinthians 12:13).

THE CHRISTIAN?S MINISTRY: In view of Christ?s last command (Matthew 28:19, 20) and recognizing the lost condition of all those who fail to accept the gospel message (John 3:18, 36), we believe in the urgency of every Christian?s responding to the Great Commission of Christ. ?Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.? (Mt. 28:19, 20) ?For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.? (John 3:16)

All scripture is quoted from the Holy Bible, NIV
