HEARTS Statement of Faith

1. We believe the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired, inerrant, infallible, divinely preserved Word of God which constitutes completed and final revelation, and to be the sole and final authority for faith and practice. (II Timothy 3:16-17;II Peter 1:21; Psalm 119:89; Psalm 12:6,7)

2. We believe there is one living and true God - an infinite, intelligent Spirit, perfect in all His attributes, and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.Deuteronomy 6:4; John 1:1-13; Matthew 3:16-17; II Corinthians 13:14; Revelation 1:8)

3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, His bodily resurrection from the dead, His ascension into Heaven, and His imminent bodily return in power and glory. (John 1:1,14; Luke 1:31-35; Philippians 2:6-8; I Corinthians 15:1-8;15:21; I Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 9:12; Acts 1:9-11; I Thessalonians 4:13-18)

4. We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin through the disobedience of Adam and is, therefore, lost, unable to justify himself before God. (Genesis 1:26,27; 2:16,17; 3:6; Romans 3:10,23; 5:12,18)

5. We believe that salvation is the free gift of God given to the sinner by grace and received by personal faith in Jesus Christ alone, as Savior and Lord, whose substitutionary death on the cross paid the penalty for man’s sin. This free gift of salvation is not received by any personal works whatsoever. (Ephesians 2:8,9; Titus 3:5; John 1:12; 5:24; Romans 5:15; 6:23; 10:9-13; Acts 16:31)

6. We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to convict and regenerate mankind, and to indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service. (John 16:7- 14; Titus 3:5; I Corinthians 6:19; 12:13; Romans 8:14; Ephesians 5:18)

7. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:28-29; 1 Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 20:4-5; 20:12-15)

8. We believe that God ordained the family to be made up of one man and one woman as defined in Genesis 2:24.
