Doctrinal Statement

To become a member, you must agree with every point of the foregoing doctrinal statement. If you are in general agreement with every doctrinal point, but have some reservations of conscience regarding the wording of one or more of the particular articles, please describe your particular reservations of conscience. Your membership will be evaluated on that basis.

I BELIEVE that Jesus death on the Cross was a perfect, final and complete payment for all the sins of all men of all ages.
I BELIEVE that the requirement of works to attain eternal life is incompatible with the belief that Salvation is a gift of God (John 4:10; Romans 4:4; 11:6; Galatians 2:21; 3:10-14; 5:1-4; Ephesians 2:8-9).
I REJECT AS HERESY the teaching that Eternal Salvation through Jesus Christ requires baptism in water, public confession of Christ, or any other work of man, and to require such as a precondition for salvation is a perversion of the gospel.
I REJECT AS HERESY the teaching that forward looking promises of good works, such as “Repentance from Sin,” “committing one’s life to Christ,” or “submitting to the Lordship of Christ” are required for receiving forgiveness and eternal life through Jesus Christ.
I BELIEVE that salvation, once received, can never be lost or forfeited.  The believer is eternally secure in Christ.
I REJECT AS HERESY the teaching that one can lose their salvation through sin, moral failure, or disobedience to God’s laws.
I BELIEVE that God calls every believer to holiness in this lifetime, and strives to bring every believer to Christ likeness in this lifetime.  Nevertheless,
I BELIEVE that Christians can, and oftentimes do sin grievously, and that some genuinely saved persons abide in a lifestyle of sin.
I REJECT as a perversion of the gospel the teaching that every true believer will, in this lifetime, automatically “persevere” in faith and good works or live up to some arbitrary minimum standard of holiness or good works.
(Apart from blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, and accepting the mark of the beast), I BELIEVE that there no sin to which the believer is immune in this lifetime.
I BELIEVE that a new convert can, and should be assured of his salvation at the moment of saving faith, and does not have to wait and see “if his life changes” to be assured of his salvation.
I BELIEVE that grace is the disposition of God to offer eternal life as a free gift.
I REJECT AS HERESY the teaching that grace is an invisible substance that God infuses into a lost sinner, or some sort of irresistible force that God somehow exerts on a sinner to empower a lost sinner to believe on Christ, or to conform man to Christ likeness.
I REJECT AS HERESY the teaching that a belief in "sovereign grace," or the “bondage of the will” is essential to saving faith.
I REJECT AS INCOHERENT LUNACY the teaching that, for a lost sinner to exercise saving faith, he must believe that he cannot believe.
I AFFIRM that the one requirement of Scripture for man's salvation is to believe on Christ alone (John 3:16).
I FURTHER AFFIRM that the requirement of faith on the part of man is specifically singled out in Scripture as being wholly consistent with God's offer of eternal life by grace, that is, a free gift (John 6:28-29; Romans 3:28; 4:4-5; Ephesians 2:8-9; and see especially Romans 4:16).
I REJECT AS HERESY the teaching that the exercise of faith by a lost sinner is a work, or otherwise inconsistent with the doctrine of grace.  (John 6:28-29; Romans 3:28; 4:4-5; Ephesians 2:8-9; and see especially Romans 4:16).
I BELIEVE that the name "Jesus" and the word "gospel" are not magic words, and that to simply speak of "Jesus" or the "gospel" when divorced from the essential truths of Jesus Christ and His glorious gospel is to preach "another Jesus" (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4) and "another gospel" (Galatians 1:6-7) in whom and in which there is no salvation.
To this end, I BELIEVE that saving faith in Jesus Christ must include: 1. An understanding and belief that man is a sinner, separated from God due to his sins, and in need of a Savior (Matthew 9:12; 1st Corinthians 15:1-4). 2. An understanding and belief that Jesus Christ is the Eternal God who became a man; (Matthew 16:16-18; John 8:23-24, 58; 11:25-27; 20:31; Acts 9:20; 16:30-31; 1st John 5:13). 3. An understanding and belief that, as a man, Jesus experience a violent and bloody death that was, by itself, sufficient to cover, pay for, or take away the sins of mankind (1st Corinthians 15:1-4, John 19:39). 4. An understanding and belief in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ;  (1st Corinthians 15:1-4); and 5. An understanding and belief that Salvation is the gift of God, bestowed only on those who honor the Son by believing in Him alone for their salvation, and renouncing all confidence in the works of the law to contribute to their salvation (John 4:10; Romans 4:4; 11:6; Galatians 2:21; 3:10-14; 5:1-4; Ephesians 2:8-9).

NOTE: We do not believe that man's doctrinal statements are infallible. On several occasions, the founder of this ministry was prevented by conscience from signing a doctrinal statement of a church or Christian organization. However, when he expressed his concern to the pastor or president of the organization, he learned that they did not hold that belief either, and that they acknowledged their doctrinal statement has been poorly worded. Although great care has been taken to ensure the accuracy of the foregoing doctrinal statement, we do not want to bar men and women of good conscience from membership because of a poorly worded sentence. If you have a reservation of conscience regarding some specific language in the foregoing doctrinal statement, but believe that your beliefs fall within the spirit and intent of the doctrinal statement, please describe your specific Reservations of Conscience in the field below. If the reviewing committee determines that your beliefs fall within the spirit and scope of the foregoing doctrinal statement, your membership will be approved.
