What We Believe

The following are the core beliefs of Christian Faith Chapel based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All  our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.
- We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament, being verbally inspired by God, are inerrant and infallible, and are of supreme and final authority. (1 Corinthians 2:7-14; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)

- We believe in one God, eternally existing in one essence, yet consisting of three co-equal persons known as The Trinity…. Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

- We believe that God the Father, the first person of the Trinity, orders and disposes all things according to his own purpose and grace, and that He is the Creator of all things. (Psalm 145:8-9; 1 Corinthians 8:6; Genesis 1:1-31; Ephesians 3:9)

- We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by God, conceived by The Holy Spirit and born to Virgin Mary as the God-Man, without altering or surrendering any of His divine nature or attributes. (Luke 1:35; Galatians 4:4-5; Colossians 2:9; Luke 5:18-26; John 16:30; 20:28)

- We believe that the Holy Spirit is the supernatural and sovereign Agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the Body of Christ. (1 Corinthians 12:13). The Holy Spirit also indwells, sanctifies, instructs, and empowers believers for service and seals them unto the day of redemption. (Romans 8:9; 2 Corinthians 3:6; Ephesians 1:13)

- We believe that mankind was created in the image of God, sinned, and thus incurred both physical and spiritual death. (Genesis 2:7; 15-25; James 3:9; Genesis 2:16-17; 3:1-19; John3:36; Romans 3:23; 6:23; 1 John 1:8)

- We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are eternally saved because of His shed blood. (John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-10; 1 Peter 1:18-19)

- We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord Jesus Christ, His ascension into heaven, and His presence there as High Priest and Advocate for all who believe in Him. (Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:38-39; Acts 2:30-31; Romans 4:25; 8:34; Hebrews 7:25; 9:24; 1 John 2:1)

- We believe in the rapture of the Church prior to the onset of the seven-year Tribulation period described in the Scriptures. (1 Thessalonians 4:16; Titus 2:13; John 14:1-3; 1 Corinthians 15:51-53; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-5:11)

- We believe in the personal, visible, and imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, John 5:22-23; Revelation 20)

- We believe that all who genuinely receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again by the Holy Spirit, and instantly become children of God and heirs of eternal life. Genuine regeneration is demonstrated by the fruit of righteous attitudes and good works. (John3:3-7; Titus 3:5; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Ephesians 2:10; Galatians 5:22-23)

- We believe in the existence of the devil who is working in the world to destroy the souls of men, and that he, his demonic angels, and all who do not receive Jesus Christ as their personal Savior will eternally perish in the lake of fire. (Genesis 3:1-15; 1 Peter 5:8; James 4:7-8; Revelation 20:10)

- We believe in the Church of Jesus Christ, whose mission is to preach the Scriptures to all the world and make disciples of all nations. (Matthew 16:18; Ephesians 2:20-22; Hebrews 10:24-25; Mathew 28:18-20)

- We believe that the ordinances of the Church have been given by the Lord Jesus which are Baptism and the Lord’s Table (Communion). (Romans 6:25; Matthew 26:28; 1 Corinthians 11:25)
