Organizational Statement of Faith: 

The Washington City Mission affirms the following beliefs:

1. The Holy Scriptures

We believe in the inspiration and Divine authority of the Bible as ?God?s word written,? containing all things necessary for salvation.

2. The Holy Trinity

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit ? who have been so revealed to us in the Gospel.

3. The Lord Jesus Christ

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as true God and true man, who, by reason of His birth of the Virgin Mary, His sinless life, His atoning death, His bodily resurrection and glorious ascension, His triumphant reign, and His expected visible bodily return to earth in glory for the resurrection of the dead (some to life and some to condemnation), is the only Mediator between God and man.

4. Justification and Sanctification

We believe that the fall of humanity resulted in our complete and universal separation from God and our need of salvation; that the Lord Jesus Christ died and shed His blood as a sacrifice for the sins of the whole world; that salvation is a free and everlasting gift of God entirely apart from works; that every person must repent and receive salvation by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; that the Holy Spirit regenerates us with divine Life and personally indwells that believer upon our faith in Christ, perfecting our repentance, nurturing the new life implanted within, transforming us into Christ?s image, and enabling us to do good works in the world.

5. The Christian Church: Gifts for Ministry

We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ, whose members are a new humanity called to live in the world in the power of the Holy Spirit ? worshiping God, confessing His truth, supporting one another in love, and, as a priesthood of all believers, living sacrificially for the proclamation of the Gospel to the whole world and in service to those in need.
