doctrinal statement

This is a summary of the Articles of Faith of Christian Ministries, Inc. It is to be the generally accepted statement for all the organizations of Christian Ministries, Inc.

  1. We believe in the Bible, which is verbally inspired by The Holy Spirit in the original manuscripts and is the infallible and authoritative Word of God. It is the sole authority for the Christian faith and conduct.
  2. We believe in the Triune Godhead in Three Persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  3. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, death, bodily resurrection, present exaltation at God’s right hand, and His personal, imminent return.
  4. We believe in the atonement by the substitutionary death and shed blood of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, whereby man can be saved from sin and its consequences and that we are justified (made right with God) by faith alone and not by works.
  5. We believe in the personality of Satan, called the Devil, and his present control over unregenerate mankind.
  6. We believe in the fall and lost estate of man, whose total depravity makes necessary the new birth.
