HOPE3 Ministries, Inc. Fundamentals of the Christian Faith

  • There is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: the Father, Son & Holy Spirit.
  • Jesus Christ, His only Son, was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary. He led a sinless life, was crucified, died and was buried. On the third day he rose again, ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
  • The Holy Spirit brings sinners to repentance and faith and works in them to conform them to the image of Jesus Christ.
  • The forgiveness of sins and eternal life are available to those who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
  • Salvation comes only by God’s grace and not by works, and it is experienced through faith in Jesus Christ.
  • The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God. The Bible is fully authoritative for all matters of faith and salvation.
