Organizational Statement of Faith


Prison Fellowship is committed to the historic, Orthodox Christian truths, proclaimed by the church in the Nicene and Apostle?s Creeds and as affirmed in the following statements: We believe in one God, Creator, and Lord of the Universe, the co-eternal Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ, God?s Son, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died a substitutionary, atoning death on the cross, rose bodily from the dead and ascended to heaven where, as truly God and truly man, He is the only mediator between God and man. We believe that the Bible is God?s authoritative and inspired Word. It is without error in all its teaching, including creation, history, its own origins, and salvation. Christians must submit to its divine authority, both individually and corporately, in all matters of belief and conduct, which is demonstrated by true righteous living. We believe that all people are lost sinners and cannot see the Kingdom of God except through the new birth. Justification is by grace through faith in Christ alone. We believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic Church. Its calling is to worship God, and witness concerning its Head, Jesus Christ, preaching the Gospel among all nations and demonstrating its commitment by compassionate service to the needs of human beings and by promoting righteousness and justice. We believe in the necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit for the individual?s new birth and growth to maturity, and for the Church?s constant renewal in truth, wisdom, faith, holiness, love, power, and mission. We believe that Jesus Christ will personally and visibly return in glory to raise the dead and bring salvation and judgment to completion. God will fully manifest His Kingdom when He establishes a new Heaven and new Earth, in which He will be glorified forever and exclude all evil, suffering and death.
