Statement of Faith for

The Church That Meets at Bethel

 

 

v We believe in the Divine inspiration of the Bible, the Word of God, and it’s authority in matters of faith and conduct.

 

v We believe in the Trinity – the unity and individuality of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in God.

 

v We believe in the Divinity of Jesus Christ, His incarnation and virgin birth, His real and sinless humanity, His atoning sacrifice for our sins, His resurrection and ascension and in His return.

 

v We believe in the inherent broken relationship between man and God brought about through the disobedience of man, the only way to restore the broken relationship being through Jesus.

 

v We believe in the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, in the necessity of the fruits of the Spirit as a witness to a life lived for God, and in the gifts of the Spirit as beneficial to the work and growth of the Church.

 

v We believe in the final judgement by God following death according to our faith in Christ here on earth, and eternal life with God in heaven, and in Hell – eternal life without God.

 

v We believe in the local Church as a fellowship and family belonging to God and each other, designed to worship God, teach His Word, preach the Gospel of Salvation, for the encouragement and building up of the members.

 

v The vision of this Church is that we should be a serving community dedicated to taking the Gospel of Christ to the surrounding area, to be faithful servants of God and wise stewards of His world and provisions.
