Statement of Faith

 

WHAT WE BELIEVE — At Mission Voice Network, we accept the Bible, God’s Word, to be our only authority in faith and practice, and make the following declarations of belief:

 

THE WORD OF GOD

We believe the Bible to be the Word of God: fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and having supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (II Timothy 3:16-17II Peter 1:20-21Matthew 5:18John 16:12-13).

 

THE TRINITY

We believe that there is one living, sovereign, and true God, eternally existing in three infinite persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, and that each Person of the Godhead is fully God, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption. (Deuteronomy 6:4II Corinthians 13:14).

 

GOD THE FATHER

We believe in God the Father, an infinite personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayers and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ. (John 17:3Ephesians 1:17,20-21I Corinthians 2:6-13I John 5:14-15;Jeremiah 9:23-24John 3:16-17).

 

JESUS CHRIST

We believe in Jesus Christ, who is without beginning, being of one essence with the Father and the Holy Spirit, is God’s only begotten Son, and conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary, atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal visible return to earth. (John 1:1-2Luke 1:35Romans 3:24I Peter 2:24;Ephesians 1:7I Peter 1:3-5Acts 1:9-10Hebrews 7:25Romans 8:34I John 2:1-2).

 

THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from and is One with the Father and Son, to convict the world of sin, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ and that He is an abiding helper, teacher, and guide. (John 16:8-11II Corinthians 3:6I Corinthians 12:12-14Romans 8:9; Ephesians 5:18; I Corinthians 3:16).

 

 REGENERATION

We believe that all men are sinners by nature and by choice and are, therefore, under condemnation and that there are no good deeds that a person can do to free himself from condemnation. We believe that those who receive Jesus Christ as Lord and trust in Him by faith as the only way to salvation are regenerated by the Holy Spirit. (Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:8-10John 1:12; John 14:6;  Ephesians 1:7I Peter 1:18-19).

 

THE LAST THINGS

We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to the earth and the establishment of His Kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the eternal peace and joy of the righteous, and the endless suffering of the wicked. (I Peter 4:5Romans 14:9II Timothy 4:1).

 

THE CHURCH

We believe in the universal church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of a company of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized on a credible profession of faith, and associated for worship, work, and fellowship. We believe that God has laid upon the members of the local church the primary task of giving the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world. (Ephesians 1:22-23, 5:25-27I Corinthians 12:12-14II Corinthians 11:2Acts 14:27Acts 18:22Acts 20:17I Timothy 3:1-3Titus 1:5-11Acts 13:1-4Acts 15:19-31Acts 20:28Romans 16:1, 4I Corinthians 3:9,16I Corinthians 5:4-7,13I Peter 5:1-4; Matthew 29:19-20).
