MHE Statement of Faith
MHE Statement of Faith*
1) We believe the Bible, the Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired and infallible Word of God. We believe it is complete. We deny any place of prominence, alongside of Scripture, to any other alleged holy books. The Bible alone reveals all we need to know for Christian faith and godliness.
2) We believe there is one God—our sovereign Creator, Sustainer, and Redeemer. Yet He exists in three distinct persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—who are each God, sharing equally in divine power and glory. In Jesus Christ, God the Son has assumed a fully human nature.
3) We believe that “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). We believe salvation is a free gift to all who repent and believe (trust) in Jesus Christ to redeem them through His death and resurrection.
4) We believe that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever, and His Word need not be amended or re-evaluated for this or any other generation. We believe we should conform ourselves to God’s Word, not conform God’s Word to changing times or situations.
