What We Believe
At Faith Family Church, we believe in the same biblical truths that have been held sacred since the time of Christ. We affirm truths that are unchangeable, yet fresh and applicable for each new generation. Here are the basics we hold dear.
There is one God, the Creator of all things, who is infinitely perfect and eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
ABOUT JESUS CHRIST
Jesus Christ is the true God and true Man. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life and died on the cross as a sacrifice for the sins of all men. He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, and is now at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Advocate.
ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT
The present, supernatural ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ. During this age He indwells, guides, instructs, and empowers the believer for godly living and service. Every believer can receive a fresh infilling of the Holy Spirit with speaking in a spiritual language as physical evidence.
ABOUT THE BIBLE
The Old and New Testaments are the inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of God. In the Bible, we find the revelation of God’s will for the salvation of men and the divine and final authority for Christian life.
ABOUT HUMANITY AND SALVATION
Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is, therefore, lost. Only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained. The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only grounds for justification and salvation.
ABOUT THE CHURCH
The true church is composed of all those who are born again. Through this new birth we are united together in the body of Christ. Jesus Christ is the Lord and head of the church. Every local church has the right under Christ to decide and govern its own affairs.
ABOUT BAPTISM AND COMMUNION
Water Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the church during the present age; however, they are not to be regarded as a means of salvation.
There will be a bodily resurrection of the dead; of the believer to everlasting joy with the Lord and of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
