The Bible is the inspired word of God, divinely written, inherent, infallible, reliable, and trustworthy for all matters of righteous living and conduct. (1 timothy 3:16,17, 1 peter 1:21).
That all have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God. The wages of sin is death but through Christ Jesus, all that believe in him as Lord and Savior will be saved from the consequences of sin and for eternal life (Romans 5:12. John 1:12, 3:36.).
In the trinity, that there is one God, true self-sufficient, and exists in three persons. God the Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit (II Corinthians 13:14, Jeremiah 10:10; Acts 5:3,4, John 1:1-13)
That the Holy Spirit, who indwells all believers continues the work of sanctification in every individual who has believed in Christ as their Lord and Savior. (Ephesians 5:18, 1corinthians 3:16)
That the Church is Christ’s body, living and spiritual, and every believer in Christ Jesus is called to be part of this body – Local Church for accountability, service, and growth. We believe that the Church, both the visible and invisible Church, is composed of different members – with diverse gifts, all in unity for the edification of the Church. (Matthew 28:1-20, 1 Corinthians 12:1-3; Colossian 1:8).
That Christ Jesus will return to Judge the living and the dead. And all who believed in Him will in eternity live with Him. (john 14: 1-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:16. 17; 1 Corinthians 15:5, 52).
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit; Born of the Virgin Mary; Suffered under Pontius Pilate; Was crucified, died and buried; He descended into Hell; on the third day, He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven; And sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit; The Holy Christian Church, the Communion of Saints; The Forgiveness of sins; The Resurrection of the body; And the life everlasting. Amen.
The Lausanne Covenant is widely regarded as one of the most significant documents in modern church history. Emerging from the First Lausanne Congress in 1974, with John Stott as its Chief Architect, it served as a great rallying call to the evangelical Church around the world. It defined what it means to be evangelical, and challenged Christians to work together to make Jesus Christ known throughout the world. It is a covenant with one another, and a covenant with God himself.
