Statement of Faith

Statement of Faith

We believe in one God, Creator and Sustainer of the universe, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; 1 Corinthians 12:4-6.

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, who is fully God and fully man. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on the cross for the sins of the world, was raised bodily, and exalted to God's right hand, where He makes intercession for His own. He will personally come again in power and glory. Matthew 1:23; 24:30; John 3:16; Acts 2:22; 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4; Ephesians 1:20; Philippians 2:6, 7; Hebrews 4:15; 7:25.

We believe that all people are sinners by nature, and cannot save themselves. Salvation is a free gift of God entirely apart from works, and is possessed by all those who, by faith, have received the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. Romans 3:23; John 1:12; Ephesians 2:8, 9.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Trinity, who glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ, and indwells all believers, empowering them for holy living and fruitful service. John 14:16, 17; 16:14; Acts 1:8; 5:3, 4.

We believe the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments are the divinely inspired Word of God, the only absolute authority of faith and practice. 2 Timothy 3:16, 17; 2 Peter 1:20, 21.

We believe in the Great Commission to go into all the world, preach the gospel, and make disciples of all nations. Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved, the everlasting life of the saved, and the everlasting condemnation of the unsaved. John 5:28, 29; Philippians 3:20, 21; 2 Thessalonians 1:9.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers, who form the church, the body of which Christ is the head. 1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 1:22, 23.

Navigation Tips

Since visitors use different browsers and monitors, and have different preferences in how they navigate through a website, we've provided multiple ways to progress through the studies on KnowingJesusChrist.com.

1) For those who find drop-down, slide-out menus convenient, just hover over the category (menu link on the top bar) and sub-category (menu link in the drop down list).  If there is an arrow to the right of the item, the articles in that category will slide out.  (If there is no arrow, just click on the item.)  Click on any article to read it.  If you have a "wheel mouse," you should be able to roll it toward you to see more of the drop-down menu.

2) If you are unable to see all the drop-down or slide-out items (or just prefer a different way of navigating), click on the category (menu link on the top bar), then on any sub-category in the list that appears.  You will see a list of articles to choose from OR use our Site Map.

3) Most studies are part of a series (category or sub-category).  Each article within the category has a link to the next article so you can progress easily to the next study.

4) At the top of the page, you will also notice "Breadcrumbs" that show which category and sub-category you are in.  You may click on those links to return to the "parent" category or sub-category list.

5) ANSWERS to Review Questions and Quizzes are found in links at the end of the Review Questions or Quiz.  They may also be accessed by clicking on the category (which will show a list of all articles in the category).  The link at the end of the article will cause a pop up window to appear so you may easily refer to other pages on the site; the link in the Category list will open a normal page.

If you're looking for a particular topic, word, or phrase, try the Search feature in the right column.
