Statement of Faith
• I believe in the Virgin birth and absolute Deity of Jesus Christ. • I believe in one God, eternally existing as Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit. • I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice for our sins and that His shed blood is the only means for the remission of sins. • I affirm the Divine inspirations, truthfulness and authority of both the Old and New Testament Scriptures in their entirety as the only written word of God, without error in all that it affirms (including what it teaches concerning history, the Cosmos, and moral absolutes) and is the only infallible rule of faith and practice. • I believe that man was created in God’s image; man sinned as recorded in Genesis, causing physical and spiritual death. • I believe that Jesus Christ was resurrected bodily from the tomb and that His personal bodily return to earth will be in power and glory. • I believe that sin had its origin in Adam and as a result, the entire human race is born with a sinful nature and is spiritually dead. • I believe that when a person receives the Lord Jesus Christ by faith, the Holy Spirit regenerates that person and they are born again into the family of God, and through this new birth, they receive the gift of eternal life. • I believe that those who believe on the Lord Jesus are saved and process of sanctification (being set apart unto a holy life) begins by the work and power of the Holy Spirit in that life. • I believe in a future Heaven for the saved and that it is not obtained as a result of good works but by grace. I believe in the maintaining of good works and holy living as a result of salvation. I subscribe to the above Statement of Faith and agree to support the activities of Valley Rescue Mission and to abide by the constitution and by-laws governing this organization.
