Statement of Faith
PS78Teachers holds to the doctrines of Scripture as set forth in the Westminster Confession of Faith.
THE BIBLE: The Bible is the revealed, holy, infallible, and inerrant Word of God. It is our only authority for life, and is our rule of faith and practice.
GOD IS TRIUNE: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are together one God in three distinct persons (The Holy Trinity).
GOD IS SOVEREIGN: He is the supreme ruler, absolutely in control of everything, and sustains all things by His power.
GOD IS THE CREATOR: He created everything out of nothing and created man in His own image, giving him dignity and worth.
GOD IS THE SAVIOR: Before all time, God the Father chose those upon whom He would set His special love. He then sent His son to earth to die on a cross to save those whom He chose. The Holy Spirit applies the work of Christ to all who respond by faith, indwelling them upon conversion.
MAN IS SINFUL AND SEPARATED FROM GOD: Before coming to Christ for forgiveness, man is at enmity with God, deserving eternal damnation. Every part of man is affected by sin, rendering him unable to come to God apart from the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit.
ETERNAL LIFE IS OFFERED TO ALL MEN: The benefits of Christ's death are freely offered to all, and to those who respond by faith alone, the free gift of eternal life is given.
