STATEMENT OF FAITH
Church Ministries International is a nondenominational ministry in the evangelical tradition. We work in partnership with churches and missions representing a variety of denominations and church traditions.
WORD OF GOD
We believe the Bible to be the Word of God. It is verbally inspired, inerrant in the original writing, and the final authority in all matters of faith and practice. II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:21.
We believe that Jesus Christ is God, that He was born of a virgin, shed His blood as a substitutionary sacrifice, and died vicariously for man. His resurrection was bodily and at present He is exalted on the right hand of God the Father. John 1:1-3, 14; Matthew 1:20-23; 28:6-7; Romans 3:24-25; 8:34; I Peter 3:18.
We believe Adam, although created in the image of God, succumbed to the temptations of Satan and fell. As a result, all men are totally depraved and need to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit for salvation. Genesis 1:27; 3:1-24; Psalms 51:5; Isaiah 64:6.
We believe salvation comes by grace through faith in the substitutionary atonement of Christ, by means of His shed blood on the cross. This effects man’s redemption from sin and reconciles him to God. Romans 3:24-26; 5:9; Titus 3:5; Ephesians 2:8-9; I Peter 1:18-21.
We believe that the Church (the body and bride of Christ) consists of all those who are born by the Spirit into Christ. I Corinthians 12:12-14; Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 1:22-23; 5:25-32.
RETURN OF CHRIST
We believe that the return of Christ is imminent, and it will be both personal and visible. John 14:3; I Corinthians 15:51-52; I Thessalonians 4:13-18.
We believe God has commissioned the church to go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to every creature, baptizing, teaching, and making disciples.
