The fresh hope statement of faith:
that the scriptures of the Bible, including the Old and New
Testaments, were inspired by God through The Holy Spirit and are without
error, and that they are the authoritative Word of God; the only
infallible truth and the only standard guide for living the Christian
life. We believe in the literal interpretation of the Bible.
in one God, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
in the deity of Jesus Christ; His miraculous conception by the Holy
Spirit; His virgin birth; His sinless, perfect life; His atonement and
substitutionary death through the shedding of His blood on the Cross for
our sins; His bodily resurrection for our justification; His ascension
to the right hand of the Father; His present ministry as High Priest and
Advocate; and His personal and imminent return, "Our blessed hope;"
prior to the Tribulation, and we believe that all things shall finally
be subjected to Him.
that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the
scriptures, as an atonement, substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who
believe in Him and accept Him as Lord and Savior and receive a new
"born-again" spirit, are justified only through the shedding of His
blood. We believe Jesus Christ is the ONLY WAY - the ONLY TRUTH - the
that after one is truly saved good works & fruit will follow
because we are now in Christ. But good works could never save us, or
Christ died in vain. We believe that once someone is saved they are eternally secure in Christ.
in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit indwelling all
"born-again" believers and giving life and empowering the life and
ministry of the Christian. We believe each person who is truly saved is
Eternally Sealed & Secured in Christ. We believe as works played no
part in earning our salvation it can play no part in keeping it.
We believe that the Church, which is the Body and Bride of Christ, is a spiritual organism made up of all born-again believers.
We believe in the blessed hope, the personal, imminent,
pretribulational, and premillennial coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to
rapture His saints. We believe in the subsequent, physical return of
Christ to the earth with His saints to establish His promised millennial
in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting
blessedness of the saved through the shed blood of Jesus, and the
everlasting punishment of the lost.
that every biblical promise pertaining to Israel and the Jewish
people is eternally valid. We Believe all the future prophecies
pertaining to Israel will be fulfilled. We believe there is a
difference between national Israel and the church and that God has an
ongoing plan for Israel after the rapture.
that human life clearly begins at conception.
that all forms of homosexuality and pornography are an abomination to
the Lord - although there is hope for the sinner who repents, just as there is hope for any other sin we may commit if we repent.
