LIncolnview Bible Board Statement of Faith
We believe that God's Word as revealed in the Bible is inerrant. All scripture is given by God and is authoritative 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21
We believe that God the Creator, who is eternal, co-exists in three persons: the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Genesis 1:1-2; Deuteronomy 6:4; John 16:13-15; Psalms 90:2
We believe that God the Son (Jesus Christ) was born of the Virgin Mary, suffered, died, rose again and is exalted at the right hand of God the Father, from whom He will return. Luke 1:31-35; I Corinthians 15:3-8; Philippians 2:5-11; John 14:3.
We believe that God the Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin and brings the benefits of Christ’s sacrifice to all who believe in Him. John 16:7-11.
We believe that God the Father will judge the world at the end of history. Romans 2:5, 16; Acts 17:31
We believe that all human life is sacred from conception through natural death and that every person should be treated with compassion, love, kindness, respect and dignity. Psalm 139; Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31
We believe that God has created each person as male or female and that these two distinct and complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. Genesis 1:26-27.
We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as outlined in Scripture. Genesis 2:18-25.
We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between one man and one woman who are married to each other. I Corinthians 6:18, 7:2-5; Hebrews 13:4
We believe in teaching the gospel to young people. John 14:6; John 3:16; Matthew 19:14; I Timothy 4:12; 2 Timothy 3:16-17
We believe that Christians should unite with a local church, submit to the authority of spiritual leaders, and live a holy life in keeping with the teachings of the Bible in order to effectively spread the gospel. Colossians 3:16; Hebrews 10:24-26; Ephesians 5:19-21; 1 Timothy 5:17; 1 Thessalonians 5:12-24.
