Organizational Statement of Faith


Scripture Union upholds the truths of Christianity as revealed by God in Holy Scripture including: The unity of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit in the Godhead. The sovereignty of God in creation, providence, revelation redemption and final judgment. The divine inspiration and the entire trustworthiness and unity of Holy Scripture and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. The sinfulness and guilt of all people since the Fall rendering them subject to God's wrath and condemnation. Redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin solely through the sacrificial death, as our representative and substitute, of the Lord Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God. The bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead, and His ascension to the right hand of God the Father. The necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit to make the death of Christ effective to the individual sinner, granting repentance towards God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. The justification of the sinner by the grace of God through faith in Christ alone. The indwelling and work of the Holy Spirit in the believer. The one holy, universal Church, which is the Body of Christ, and to which all true believers belong. The expectation of the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
