Statement of Faith

STATEMENT OF FAITH for CASA and CASR

WE BELIEVE the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are inspired by God and are fully trustworthy and the final authority in all they say.

WE BELIEVE in one sovereign God, eternally existing in three persons: the everlasting Father, His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, the giver of life.

WE BELIEVE that God has revealed Himself and His truth in the created order, in the Scriptures, and supremely in Jesus Christ.

WE BELIEVE in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

WE BELIEVE that all who receive Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit, become children of God, and are enabled to offer spiritual worship acceptable to God.

WE BELIEVE that the one, holy, universal Church is the body of Christ; that it is worldwide and composed of communities of Christ’s people.

WE BELIEVE in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting punishment of the lost, and the everlasting blessedness of the saved.

WE BELIEVE in the Great Commission, that Jesus commanded his followers to make disciples of all nations.

WE BELIEVE that human life is sacred from conception to its natural end and that we must have concern for the physical and spiritual needs of our fellowmen.

WE BELIEVE God’s plan for human sexuality is to be expressed only within the context of marriage between one male and one female.

WE BELIEVE that God is sovereign over the affairs of men and women, that He blesses His children with health and prosperity according to His divine will and not according to our human will. We believe in healing and the power of prayer. However, we reserve to the Sovereign One the place, time, and manner of all blessings
