Statement of Faith

We at the ChristianGlobe Network confess belief in the triune God-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This confession embraces the biblical witness to God's activity in creation, encompasses his gracious self-involvement in the dramas of history, and anticipates the consummation of God's reign.

We hold that Scripture is the primary source and criterion for Christian doctrine. Through Scripture the living Christ meets us in the experience of redeeming grace. We are convinced that Jesus Christ is the living Word of God in our midst whom we trust in life and death.

We afffirm that God reaches out to the repentant believer in justifying grace with accepting and pardoning love. We believe a decisive change in the human heart can and does occur under the prompting of grace and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

In justification we are, through faith, forgiven our sin and restored to God's favor. This righting of relationships by God through Christ calls forth our faith and trust as we experience regeneration, by which we are made new creatures in Christ.

This process of justification and new birth is often referred to as conversion. Such a change may be sudden and dramatic, or gradual and cumulative. It marks a new beginning, yet it is part of an ongoing process. Christian experience as personal transformation always expresses itself as faith working by love.

Our theology also embraces the scriptural promise that we can expect to receive assurance of our present salvation as the Spirit "bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God."

We are orthodox in our belief and affirm our faith along with christians through out history through the Apostle's Creed:

    We believe in God, the Father Almighty,
        the Creator of heaven and earth,
        and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:

    Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit,
        born of the Virgin Mary,
        suffered under Pontius Pilate,
        was crucified, dead, and buried.

    The third day He arose again from the dead.

    He ascended into heaven
        and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty,
        whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

    We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy *catholic church,
        the communion of saints,
        the forgiveness of sins,
        the resurrection of the body,
        and life everlasting.

    *catholic means universal
