Organizational Statement of Faith


Our Statement of Faith These are the fundamental faith-beliefs that we, at My Father?s House, hold to be true. They are common to Christians world-wide: We believe . . . . . .in one God who has expressed himself in personal ways. We know God?s personality as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. . . . the Bible communicates God?s saving message and is our reliable authority in all matters related to faith and Christian living. . . . that all humankind struggles with a downward pull. . . . that unless we experience God?s help and salvation through a faith commitment to Jesus Christ, our future is one of eternal separation from God and all that is good. . . . the love and grace of God is extended to every person in the provision Jesus Christ made in his death and resurrection. By turning from our own self-centeredness and trusting Jesus Christ, we experience a new life, being freed from the old patterns of self?destructive acts called sin. . . . our new life in Jesus Christ is the gateway to transformation. Following our moment of faith in Jesus, we believe there is another moment in which we present our life completely to Christ in order to live under his authority and to experience his transforming power. . . . that Christian experience is more than a change of mind. It is accompanied by assurance that is grounded in both the Scriptures as well as the inner witness of God?s Spirit. . . . that all who live for Jesus Christ have an eternal future. Our belief that such a future includes both the fulfillment of God’s creative purpose as well as the accountability of all persons endowed with the power of choice.
