Our Faith

Faith is the spiritual part of man and it is exercised when one believes in God through Trust,

Obedience and Holiness.


Our Faith in God; In God We Trust.

Faith is our answer to the effectual calling of God. Our Faith has been placed in one God.

Our Faith in Scriptures (Holy Bible) 

Faith Christian Fellowship believes the Scriptures of the Holy Bible (both new and old

testament) as the Infallible, Inerrant and Inspired Word of God. While written by man, we believe

God to be the author and finisher of the Bible, and Jesus Christ is the author and finisher of our

faith.


The words therein were given to man and inspired by the Holy Spirit of God. "All Scripture is

given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for

instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every

good work." ~2 Timothy 3:16

1) We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy

Spirit.

2) We believe that man was created in the image of God, but fell into sin and is therefore lost.
 
Only through regeneration by the work of the Holy Spirit can man's salvation and spiritual life be

obtained.

3) We believe that eternal salvation is the free gift of God, entirely apart from man's works, and is

possessed by any and all who have faith in and receive Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and

Savior.

4) We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, and that He is true God and man.  He died on the

cross for our sins.  He rose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven where He sits at the right

hand of the Father and is now our High Priest and Advocate.

5) We believe in a regenerated church membership.  That is, persons old enough to understand

their need for Jesus Christ, and of their own free will, accept Him as their personal Lord and

Savior.

6) We believe that baptism is by immersion and the Lord's Supper is a memorial to His suffering

and death on the cross. These are ordinances to be observed by the church in its present age.  They

are, however, not to be regarded as means for man's salvation.

7) We believe in the personal, bodily, imminent, and glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ; and

that His Second Coming inspires believers to live a dynamic and zealous life of service for Him

while awaiting for His return.

8) We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, the everlasting blessedness of the saved in

heaven, and the everlasting punishment and separation from God for the unsaved in hell.

9) We believe in the autonomy of the local church. The church shall manage its own affairs and

shall not be subject to any other religious body or organization.

10)We subscribe to the "Baptist Faith and Message" adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention

in 2002 as our largest statement of faith with scriptural references.
