A Helping Hand Doctrinal Statement
We believe in the Triune God, Who eternally exists in the persons of the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Triune God created the universe in six literal days and that man was created in the image of God but chose to sin. Therefore, all persons inherit a depraved nature and are lost sinners in need of salvation.
We believe in Jesus Christ, the God-Man, one person with two natures. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, vicarious and atoning death, bodily resurrection, and second coming.
We believe that salvation is a free gift of God and is received by faith alone in Christ’s finished work alone. This results in the sinner being declared righteous because the righteousness of Christ is imputed to the believer.
We believe in the gracious work of the Holy Spirit Who calls, convicts, enlightens, and quickens the sinner that he may embrace Jesus Christ.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and lost: those who are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life in heaven, and those who are lost unto the resurrection of eternal damnation in a literal lake of fire.
We believe in the verbal inspiration of the infallible Word of God.
