Eastern Gate Church Statement of Faith

We believe...

…the Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God;

...there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost;

...in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal future return to the earth in power and glory to rule a thousand years;

...in the Blessed Hope - the rapture of the Church at Christ’s coming;

...the only means of being cleansed from sins is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Jesus;

...regeneration of the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation;

...in Water Baptism by immersion for believers according to Matthew 28:19;

...in observance of the Lord’s Supper in remembrance of the death of our Lord according to I Corinthians 11:23-32;

...the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross provides healing of the human body through believing prayer;

...the baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4 is given to believers who ask for it and tongues being the initial physical evidence;

...in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life;

...in the sanctity of life which has intrinsic value beginning at conception to natural death, and that all life is created by God in His image and is precious in His sight;

...in the liberty of conscience for every believer, according to Romans 14;

...in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation.
