Doctrinal Statement

Working Doctrinal Statement for Mercy Chefs

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each of whom is equal in being, power, and glory.
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, 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 man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam’s sin the human race fell, inherited a sin nature, and became alienated from God; and, that man is totally depraved, and himself completely unable to remedy his lost condition.
  • We believe that faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit are necessary for salvation and that we are justified by faith alone in Christ alone by grace alone.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit whose indwelling enables the Christian to live a godly life.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church.
  • We believe that the purpose of the Church and of each individual Christian is to glorify God by loving God, loving their neighbor and making disciples. Making disciples includes both evangelizing the lost and nurturing Christians.
