Marty Miller - Statement of Faith
I believe that every word in the
Bible is totally inspired by God and that every part of it is true and accurate.
II Tim. 3:16, 17
I believe that there is only one
true God, but He exists forever in three persons...
the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. John 10:30
I believe that Jesus Christ is
both truly God and truly man. He was born out of a virgin young woman, lived a
sinless life, died for our sins and rose again after being dead for 3 days. And,
He will definitely be returning. Luke
1:26-38; Phil. 2:5-11; I Tim. 2:5,6; John 14:1-3; II Thess. 1:7-9.
I believe that the Holy Spirit
baptizes and indwells all true believers, and empowers those believers who are
yielded to God. John 14:26; I Cor.
12:13, 6:19; Eph. 5:18.
I believe that man was created
by God; and that man deliberately sinned against his Creator and is therefore a
sinner by nature and by choice. Gen.
1:26, 27; Rom. 5:12.
I believe that salvation has
been provided for all by Christís shed blood and substitutionary death on the
cross. I Cor. 15:1-4; I John
2:2; I Tim. 2:6; II Cor. 5:18-21.
I believe that all people be
saved (born again, justified) by grace through faith in Christ alone, plus or
minus nothing; and receive the free gift of eternal life. Acts
16:31; Rom. 6:23; John 10:28-30; Rom. 8:35-39; I John5:11-13.
I believe that Satan (the Devil)
is actively opposing God and the people of God; but is doomed to an eternal
punishment in the Lake of Fire. I
Peter 5:8; Matt. 25:41; Rev. 20:10.
I believe that all who reject
Christ will end up in Hell and the Lake of Fire forever in the conscious torment
of literal fire. Psalm
9:17; Luke 16:19-31; Rev. 20:11-15.
I believe that the Lord uses and
blesses the local church to share His love, His truth and the witnessing of His
saving grace through the help of the Holy Spirit by personal soul winning, and
for the church to be just as concerned with the people across the street, as the
members inside! I Tim. 3:15; II Tim. 2:2; Matt. 28:19, 20.
