The Jesus Booth Statement of Faith
WE BELIEVE the Bible is uniquely inspired by God in its every detail, is without error and is the final authority on all matters on which it bears.
(2 Tim. 3:15-17, 2 Pet. 1:21).
WE BELIEVE there is one God eternally existing in three persons– the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Gen. 1:1, Deut. 6:4, Mt. 28:19, Jn. 10:30).
WE BELIEVE in the deity of Christ (Jn. 10:33);
His virgin birth (Isa. 7:14,Mt. 1:23, Lk. 1:34-35);
His sinless life (Heb. 4:15; 7:26);
His miracles (Jn. 2:11);
His substitutional and atoning death (1 Cor. 15:3, Eph. 1:7, Heb. 2:9);
His resurrection (Jn. 11:25, 1 Cor.15:4);
His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mk. 16:19);
His personal return to earth in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Rev. 19:11-16)
WE BELIEVE in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature, and that all are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ, and that only by God’s grace, through faith alone, are we saved.
(Jn. 3:16-19; 5:24, Rom. 3:23, 5:8-9, Eph. 2:8-10,Titus 3:5).
WE BELIEVE in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the wicked will be eternally separated from God. The saved will have eternal life with the Father.
WE BELIEVE in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
(Rom. 8:9, 1 Cor. 12:12-13, Gal. 3:26-28).
WE BELIEVE in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.
(Rom. 8:13-14,1 Cor. 3:16; 6:19-20, Eph. 4:30; 5:18).
