LifePointe Statement of Faith
…the Bible to be verbally inspired, and as such the only infallible, authoritative, and inerrant Word of God.
…there is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each fully God yet each personally distinct from the other.
…that Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.
…that Jesus Christ died on the cross as a sinless sacrifice for our sins. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He now is our High Priest and Advocate, awaiting His personal return in power and glory to fulfill the eternal plan of God.
…that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God.
…that Jesus Christ died for our sins as a substitutionary sacrifice; and that by grace, all who believe in Him and receive Him as personal Savior are justified on the basis of His shed blood alone. Therefore, salvation cannot be earned through personal goodness or human effort; rather it is received through humble repentance and faith in Christ.
…in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit who convicts the world of sin and draws people to Christ, and by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a powerful and godly life.
…in the Genesis record of creation in that God created the heavens and the earth including all life by direct act.
…in the bodily resurrection of the dead; the saved to the resurrection of life with our Lord, and the lost to the resurrection of condemnation.
