STATEMENT OF FAITH
The Statement of Faith is consistent with the intent of the By-Laws of Power In The Word Fellowship
ONE TRUE GOD – God has revealed Himself as the eternally “I Am”, the Creator of all things and redeemer of mankind who is indefinitely perfect and manifest as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
THE INSPIRED SCRIPTURES – The scriptures, Old and New Testament are the inspired Word of God, the revelation of God to man and the infallible, final authority for all Christian faith and practice.
2 Timothy 3:15-17
DEITY OF JESUS CHRIST – God has revealed Himself as the eternal Son of God and shares the Deity of God. He is also truly man, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, died on the cross as the sacrifice for sin, arose from the dead, ascended into heaven and is not at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Advocate.
ORIGINAL SIN AND FALL OF MAN – Man was created in the image of God, but disobeyed and fell from the Grace of God. From this fall, sin entered the world and brought death by sin causing not only physical death, but also spiritual death.
BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT -Baptism in the Holy Spirit is to glorify Jesus Christ and to indwell, guide and empower believers for life and service. This baptism brings the gifts of the Holy Spirit to the forefront of the ministry to the Body of Christ
DIVINE HEALING – The redemption provided by Jesus Christ includes more than forgiveness of sins. His work on the cross was complete and provided salvation for man’s spirit, soul and body. Healing is also an integral part of the Gospel of Christ.
