The Warner University Statement of Faith

 

We believe the Bible to be verbally inspired in every word, inerrant in the original documents, infallible, God-breathed and sufficient. We believe the Bible is the only rule of faith and practice for all believers. We believe in the literal grammatical historical interpretation of this Bible, and we believe the final guide to interpretation of the Bible is the Bible itself {Genesis 1:1; 2 Timothy 3:16; Jeremiah 30:2; Revelation 21:5; 2 Peter 1:21; 1 Corinthians 2:13; John 17:17; Psalm 119:105}

We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. {Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30}

—-

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, and born of a virgin – fully God, and fully man, in His sinless life, in His miracles in His vicarious and atoning death through His bloodshed, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of God the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. {John 10:33; Matthew 1:23; Hebrews 4:15; John 2:11; 1 Corinthians 15:3; Ephesians 1:7; John 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:4; Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11}

—-

We believe that man was created directly and immediately by God in His image. All mankind, through Adam’s sin, are born sinners and must be born again by being re-created in God’s image through Jesus Christ. {Genesis 1:27; Romans 3:23; 2 Corinthians 5:17}

—-

We believe in the sanctity of human life. We believe sexuality is a gift from God and should not be expressed through immorality or impurity of any kind. {Jeremiah 1:5, Psalm 139:13-14, Ephesians 5:3-4, 1 Corinthians 5:1-5, 6:13-20, Ephesians 4:19, 1 Corinthians 6:9, 1 Thessalonians 4:3}

—-

We further believe that marriage is the building block of human civilization and the Biblical design is for it to be between one man and one woman in a monogamous relationship for life. {Genesis 2:18-25, Matthew 19:4-6, Hebrews 13:4}

—-

We believe that for the salvation of sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is provided by grace, through faith in Christ Jesus. {John 3:16-19; John 5:24; Romans 5:8-9; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5}

—-

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is able to live the godly life. {Romans 8:13-14; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Ephesians 4:30; Ephesians 5:18}

—-

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, those who are saved unto the resurrection of life and those who are lost unto the resurrection of the condemned. {John 5:28-29}

—-

We believe in the Spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. {Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Galatians 3:26-28}

—-

We believe that the church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit and exists to reach the lost, worship God, be in community as God’s family, and to serve others in Jesus’ name. {1 Corinthians 4:1; Acts 20:28}

—-

We believe that all believers are under the mandate of Jesus Christ to proclaim the Gospel to all the world. {Matthew 28:19-20}
