STATEMENT OF FAITH

The Statement of Faith is consistent with the intent of the By-Laws of the Living Word Faith Center.

ONE TRUE GODGod has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent “I AM”, the Creator of all things, and redeemer of mankind who is indefinitely perfect and manifests as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. ( Isaiah 43:11, Luke 3:33).

THE INSPIRED SCRIPTURES- The Scriptures, Old and New Testament, are the inspired Word of God, the revelation of God to man, and the infallible, final authority for all Christian faith and practice. (2 Timothy 3: 15-17).

DEITY OF JESUS CHRISTThe Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God and shares the Deity of God. He is also truly man, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, died on the cross as the sacrifice for sin, arose from the dead, ascended into heaven and is now at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Advocate (Matthew 1:23).

ORIGINAL SIN AND FALL OF MAN Man was created in the image of God, but disobeyed and fell from the Grace of God. From this fall, Sin entered the world and brought death by sin causing not only physical death but also spiritual death (Genesis 1:3).

SALVATION BY FAITH Man sins because he has a sinful nature. Only through the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection can man find salvation from the power of sin. This salvation and spiritual life, a free gift of grace from God, can only be obtained by exercising faith in the person and finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ(Ephesians 2:8,9).

THE NEW MAN IN CHRIST If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature (creation) in the inward man. We are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus. We are partakers of His divine nature (2 Corinthians 5:17, Ephesians 2:10, 2 Peter 1:4).

BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT  The baptism in the Holy Spirit is to glorify Jesus Christ and to indwell, guide and empower believers for life and service. This baptism brings the gifts or enablements of the Holy Spirit and their uses to the forefront of the ministry to the Body of Christ. This experience is distinct from and subsequent of the New Birth and is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance (Acts 2:1-4).

DIVINE HEALINGThe redemption provided by Jesus Christ includes more than forgiveness of sins. His work on the    cross was complete and provided salvation for man’s spirit, soul and body. Healing is also an integral part of the Gospel of Christ.( Acts 10:38, 1 Peter 2:24, Galatians 3:13 and Deuteronomy 28:15-61).
