The Christian’s Full Statement of Faith


Section 1: The Bible

1.1  We believe the Bible, comprised of the Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God (Matthew 5:182 Timothy 3:16-17).

18 For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished.   Matt 5:18

16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.    2 Timothy 3:16-17

Fantasy Correction 1:1 -

In one breath the Christians say they believe in the Old Testament and it is infallible and authoritative "Word of God."  Yet in the next breath they say that they don't have to follow what the Old Testament says because "The blood" of Jesus has done away with the old law.  They give a violent image in hopes that you will be intimidated and not answer.  They say there is now the new law instead (the New Testament).  This is a blatant contradiction in statements which is typical statements for a Christian.  They think they are exempt from stating any contradictions.  

They state that the Old Testament is the inspired and authoritative "Word of God."  This infallible and authoritative label means that the many commandments in the Old Testament have to be followed, such as the Ten Commandments.  The Christians in fact quote the Ten Commandments all the time.  Yet they violate the first four of the Ten Commandments with their stated fantasy religious story, as well as the ninth commandment "not to bear false witness."  That is violating five of the Ten Commandments.

Christians say that Jesus is "God in the Flesh."  This violates the first and most important Commandment, "Thou shall not have false Gods before me."  By Christians saying that Jesus is a God, and the Father is a God, and the Holy Ghost is a God, clearly violates this commandment.  By saying these as actually three persons in one God and that they are all equal in power and stature as one God is another blatant contradiction.  Jesus stated that the Father God was greater than he.  Jesus stated many times that he didn't know things that only the Father God knew.  So the Holy Ghost also didn't know.  The Jesus God prayed to the Father God in the Garden of Gethsemane to beg him to change his fate, which he didn't.  John the Baptist baptized people for the remission of sins and he baptized the Jesus God who allegedly was perfect and had never sinned.  Immediately after Jesus got baptized the other God, the Holy Ghost, descended into Jesus.  The Jesus God called "his God" the Father God, not the Holy Ghost.  This contradicts what the Old Testament says about there being only one God and no savior and that there is only one God and God is not in any man form.  "There is no other."  How can an infinite God also have finite qualities.

It also violates the third of The Ten Commandments to "not take the name of the Lord in vain. " Does the super-hero status of Jesus man is God, disclose the believer's ego (vanity) to have him as a personal big brother savior, or Superman.

Crosses and Statutes also violates the second of the Ten Commandments to not have graven images of God.  Any three dimensional characterization of Jesus, the dove Holy Ghost God or the Father God or any symbol representing these three Gods violates this commandment.

The ninth commandment of the Ten Commandments is not to bear false witness.  By Christians proclaiming to others that Jesus is God or that there are three Gods in one God is clearly bearing false witness.

The stating that God breathed out all the scriptures is absolute vanity.  Then follows the ridiculous statement that these scriptures are profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training is wishful thinking.  The New Testament is the most contradictory book ever written.  It says one thing, then says the opposite.  This is done throughout the whole New Testament.  And this is, as the infallible scripture says, to make the man "complete?"  Christians have committed to believing the New Testament is the word of God so they do everything imaginable to try to prove the scriptures are correct so that they don't seems like fools for believing anything they are told to believe without thinking about the statements.

1.2  In faith we hold the Bible to be inerrant in the original writings, God-breathed, and the complete and final authority for faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.    2 Timothy 3:16-17

Fantasy Correction 1.2

Bible inerrant???  Have they read their New Testament???  The whole book was composed by an errant Council of Nicaea.  The Council chose the books they wanted that supported their objectives.  And those "inerrant" writings they chose were changed many times by many people as all scholars agree on.  God's breathing sounds like a great image but certainly had nothing to do with the "final authority for faith and practice."  It is man who breathed the final authority for faith.  God would not breath out something so stupid.

1.3  While still using the individual writing styles of the human authors, the Holy Spirit perfectly guided them to ensure they wrote precisely what He wanted written, without error or omission (2 Peter 1:21).

21 For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God las they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

Fantasy Correction 1.3

I guess the Holy Spirit was giver the job of ensuring that these humans wrote precisely what it wanted.  The Holy Spirit did a terrible job.  Maybe the job should have been given to the Father God instead.  Without error or omission??? Just another case of Christians says what sounds good hoping that the listeners are too lazy to investigate the statement.  
There are so many errors in the New Testament that is would be very difficult to number the amount.  There are omissions in the writings everywhere such as are found in the Genealogy of Jesus.  Every book of the New Testament conflicts with another part in the same book or in another book.  Holy Ghost - you are fired!!!
The scripture given is a good example.  "Men spoke from God."  Which God??? I can see that it says these men were carried along by the Holy Ghost so I assume that it wasn't that God.  Here is an example of the writings omitting which God it was.  Was it the Jesus God or was it the Father God.

Section 2: God

2.1 We believe in one God, who is Creator of all (Deuteronomy 6:4Colossians 1:16), who has revealed Himself in three distinct Persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14), yet who is one in being, essence, and glory (John 10:30).

14  The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.    2 Corinthians 13:14

Fantasy Correction 2.1

One God creator of all - anyone that doesn't understand this is a super-super-dummy.  Christians seem to escape this label…. but…..  But the three distinct persons who "is" (they use the singular) one being/essence …. Is an oxymoron statement.  Three persons in one person???    ...and then they put the word glory in as a distraction.  

God is eternal (Psalm 90:2), infinite (1 Timothy 1:17), and sovereign (Psalm 93:1). God is omniscient (Psalm 139:1-6), omnipresent (Psalm 139:7-13), omnipotent (Revelation 19:6), and unchanging (Malachi 3:6). God is holy (Isaiah 6:3), just (Deuteronomy 32:4), and righteous (Exodus 9:27). God is love (1 John 4:8), gracious (Ephesians 2:8), merciful (1 Peter 1:3), and good (Romans 8:28).

Section 3: Jesus Christ

We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is God incarnate, God in human form, the expressed image of the Father, who, without ceasing to be God, became man in order that He might demonstrate who God is and provide the means of salvation for humanity (Matthew 1:21John 1:18Colossians 1:15).

We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit and was born of the virgin Mary (Matthew 1:23); that He is truly fully God and truly fully man (John 1:1,14); that He lived a perfect, sinless life (1 John 3:5); that all His teachings are true (John 14:6). We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross for all humanity (1 John 2:2) as a substitutionary sacrifice (Isaiah 53:5-6). We hold that His death is sufficient to provide salvation for all who receive Him as Savior (John 1:12Acts 16:31); that our justification is grounded in the shedding of His blood (Romans 5:9Ephesians 1:7); and that it is attested by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead (Matthew 28:61 Peter 1:3).

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven in His glorified body (Acts 1:9-10) and is now seated at the right hand of God as our High Priest and Advocate (Romans 8:34Hebrews 7:25).

Section 4: The Holy Spirit

We believe in the deity and personality of the Holy Spirit (Acts 5:3-4). He regenerates sinners (Titus 3:5) and indwells believers (Romans 8:9). He is the agent by whom Christ baptizes all believers into His body (1 Corinthians 12:12-14). He is the seal by whom the Father guarantees the salvation of believers unto the day of redemption (Ephesians 1:13-14). He is the Divine Teacher who illumines believers’ hearts and minds as they study the Word of God (1 Corinthians 2:9-12).

We believe that the Holy Spirit is ultimately sovereign in the distribution of spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 12:11). We believe that the miraculous gifts of the Spirit, while by no means outside of the Spirit’s ability to empower, no longer function to the same degree they did in the early development of the church (1 Corinthians 12:4-112 Corinthians 12:12Ephesians 2:204:7-12).

Section 5: Angels and Demons

We believe in the reality and personality of angels. We believe that God created the angels to be His servants and messengers (Nehemiah 9:6Psalm 148:2Hebrews 1:14).

We believe in the existence and personality of Satan and demons. Satan is a fallen angel who led a group of angels in rebellion against God (Isaiah 14:12-17Ezekiel 28:12-15). He is the great enemy of God and man, and the demons are his servants in evil. He and his demons will be eternally punished in the lake of fire (Matthew 25:41;Revelation 20:10).

Section 6: Humanity

We believe that humanity came into existence by direct creation of God and that humanity is uniquely made in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:26-27). We believe that all humanity, because of Adam’s fall, has inherited a sinful nature, that all human beings choose to sin (Romans 3:23), and that all sin is exceedingly offensive to God (Romans 6:23). Humanity is utterly unable to remedy this fallen state (Ephesians 2:1-5,12).

Section 7: Salvation

We believe that salvation is a gift of God’s grace through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross (Ephesians 2:8-9). Christ’s death fully accomplished justification through faith and redemption from sin. Christ died in our place (Romans 5:8-9) and bore our sins in His own body (1 Peter 2:24).

We believe salvation is received by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. Good works and obedience are results of salvation, not requirements for salvation. Due to the greatness, sufficiency, and perfection of Christ’s sacrifice, all those who have truly received Christ as Savior are eternally secure in salvation, kept by God’s power, secured and sealed in Christ forever (John 6:37-4010:27-30Romans 8:138-39Ephesians 1:13-141 Peter 1:5;Jude 24). Just as salvation cannot be earned by good works, neither does it need good works to be maintained or sustained. Good works and changed lives are the inevitable results of salvation (James 2).

Section 8: The Church

We believe that the Church, the Body of Christ, is a spiritual organism made up of all believers of this present age (1 Corinthians 12:12-142 Corinthians 11:2Ephesians 1:22-235:25-27). We believe in the ordinances of believer’s water baptism by immersion as a testimony to Christ and identification with Him, and the Lord’s Supper as a remembrance of Christ’s death and shed blood (Matthew 28:19-20Acts 2:41-4218:81 Corinthians 11:23-26). Through the church, believers are to be taught to obey the Lord and to testify concerning their faith in Christ as Savior and to honor Him by holy living. We believe in the Great Commission as the primary mission of the Church. It is the obligation of all believers to witness, by word and life, to the truths of God’s Word. The gospel of the grace of God is to be preached to all the world (Matthew 28:19-20Acts 1:82 Corinthians 5:19-20).

Section 9: Things to Come

We believe in the blessed hope (Titus 2:13), the personal and imminent coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to rapture His saints (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). We believe in the visible and bodily return of Christ to the earth with His saints to establish His promised millennial kingdom (Zechariah 14:4-111 Thessalonians 3:13Revelation 3:1019:11-16,20:1-6). We believe in the physical resurrection of all human beings—the saints to everlasting joy and bliss on the New Earth, and the wicked to eternal punishment in the lake of fire (Matthew 25:46John 5:28-29Revelation 20:5-612-13).

We believe that the souls of believers are, at death, absent from the body and present with the Lord, where they await their resurrection when spirit, soul, and body are reunited to be glorified forever with the Lord (Luke 23:432 Corinthians 5:8Philippians 1:233:211 Thessalonians 4:16-17). We believe that the souls of unbelievers remain, after death, in conscious misery until their resurrection when, with soul and body reunited, they shall appear at the Great White Throne judgment and shall be cast into the Lake of Fire to suffer everlasting punishment (Matthew 25:41-46Mark 9:43-48Luke 16:19-262 Thessalonians 1:7-9Revelation 20:11-15).
