LIGHT Fellowship's Statement of Faith
- That all of our children are gifts from God (Psalm 139:13-18; Psalm 127:3-5); that each child is precious
in God’s sight (Matthew 18:10); that God has given parents sole authority over the education of the children He
has given to them (Ephesians 6:4; Deuteronomy 6:6-9; Galatians 4:1-2); and that the parents are accountable to
God alone for the education and training of their children (Deuteronomy 6 & 11:18-20; Matthew 18:1-14).
That the Bible is the Word of God and constitutes His complete and final revelation, including
theological concepts as well as geographical and historical details. We believe in the verbal and
plenary inspiration of the 66 books comprising the Old and New Testaments and that they are inerrant in
the original writings. Therefore, the Bible is the supreme and final authority in our faith and life
(Psalm 19:7, 8; 119:89; II Timothy 3:16, 17; Matthew 5:17-19; II Peter 1:20, 21).
That God has existed from all eternity in three persons: God, The Father, God, The Son and God, The
Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ was God in human flesh being fully God and fully man, except without sin
(Deuteronomy 6:4; John 1:1-18; 4:24; I Peter 2:22).
That all men are in violation of God’s righteous requirements and His holy character both by nature and
act, and are therefore under His wrath and just condemnation. The central purpose of the coming of
Jesus Christ was to pay the penalty for man’s sin through His substitutionary death on the cross-the
successful accomplishment of which was attested to by His subsequent visible, bodily resurrection
(Romans 3:10, 23-26; 6:23; I Corinthians 15:11-58), and ascension to the right hand of God, The Father
(Acts 1:11; Hebrews 1:3; Ephesians 2:19-22).
That salvation is offered as a gift, free to the sinner. This gift must be responded to in individual
faith, not trusting in any personal works whatsoever, but the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ alone
(Ephesians 2:8-10; Romans 6:23; John 3:16).
That all the saved should live in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Savior and Lord;
that separation from all worldly, sinful pleasures, practices, and associations is commanded of God
(Romans12:1-3; II Corinthians 6:14-18 and 7:1; I John 2:15-17; II John 9-11).
That there will be a resurrection and a judgment for both the righteous and the wicked (Romans
14:11-12; John 5:28-29); therefore, we are accountable to God for every thought (II Corinthians
10:4-5), motive (I Corinthians 13:1-13), word (Matthew 12:36-37), action (II Corinthians 5:10, and
attitude (Jeremiah 17:9-10).
