Declaration of Faith Cathedral
WE BELIEVE in the divine inspiration of all the books of the Old and New Testaments, as originally given, and that they are infallibly and authoritative and free from error of any sort, in all matters with which they deal, scientific and historical as well as moral and theological.
WE BELIEVE in the triune Godhead - one eternal, transcendent, omnipotent and personal God existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
WE BELIEVE in the special creation of the existing space-time universe and all its basic systems and kinds of organisms in the six literal days of the creation week.
WE BELIEVE in the biblical record of the literal existence of Adam and Eve as the progenitors of all people, the literal Fall and resultant divine curse on the creation.
WE BELIEVE that God the Father, the first person of the Divine Trinity, in infinite spirit - sovereign, eternal and unchangeable in all His attributes. He is worthy of honor, adoration and obedience.
WE BELIEVE in the perfect, sinless humanity and the absolute full deity of the Lord Jesus Christ and His unique incarnation by miraculous conception and virgin birth.
WE BELIEVE in the substitutionary and redemptive sacrifice of Jesus Christ for the sin of the world, through His literal physical death, burial, and resurrection, followed by His bodily ascension into heaven.
WE BELIEVE in personal salvation from the eternal penalty of sin provided solely by the grace of God on the basis of the atoning death and resurrection of Christ, to be received only through personal faith in His person and work.
WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead who convicts, regenerates, indwells and seals all believers in Christ and fills those who yield to Him. The Holy Spirit gives spiritual gifts to all believers; however, the manifestation of any particular gift is not required as evidence of salvation.
WE BELIEVE in the existence of a personal, malignant being, called Satan, who acts as a tempter and accuser, for whom the place of eternal punishment was prepared, where all who die outside of Christ shall be confined for eternity.
WE BELIEVE in the future, personal, bodily return of Jesus Christ to the earth to judge and purge sin, to establish His eternal Kingdom and to consummate and fulfill His purposes in the works of creation and redemption with eternal rewards and punishments.
WE BELIEVE in the literal, visible, personal return of Jesus Christ for His church. At this event, the dead in Christ and living believers will be translated to meet Him in the air.
WE BELIEVE in the priesthood of all believers so that every Christian has direct access to God in prayer through Jesus Christ, our Great High Priest, and that there is no mediator between God and humanity other than Jesus Christ.
