Statement of faith

Our Scriptural Statement
To help people walk in God’s paths - Isaiah 2:3

Statement of Faith

 

  • We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture, nor the doctrines of Camp Pinnacle. Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31

  • We believe in the Divine inspiration of the Bible, that the books from Genesis to Revelation are without error, and that they are the infallible authoritative Word of God.  2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:19-21; Revelation 22:18-19

  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. Psalm 90:2; John 3:16; Matthew 6:9-15; Genesis 1:1-3; John 14:10,16-17; 15:26; Matthew 28:19

  • We believe 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 through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return to reign in power and glory.  Matthew 1:23; 25:31-46; John 1:1-2; Hebrews 7:24-25, 9:24; Romans 3:24-25, 4:25; Ephesians 1:7; Philippians 2:5-11; 1 Peter 1:3-5; Luke 2:29-35; Acts 10:36, Romans 6:23

  • We believe in the fall of man, his moral depravity, and the necessity of the new birth.  Genesis 1:27, 3:1-6; Romans 3:10-12, 5:12; 1 John 1:8-10; Hebrews. 9:27; Job 14:5

  • We believe in the substitutionary atonement through the shed blood of Christ, in justification by faith, and in regeneration by the Holy Spirit. This is God’s provision for the salvation of lost and sinful men from the penalty and power of sin.  John 1:12; 1 Peter 1:18-19; Acts 2:37-38; Romans 3:23, 5:8, 8:15-17, 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-9

  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life. John 14:26, 16:8-11; Romans 12:3-8; 1 Corinthians 12:11,28; Ephesians 1:13-14, 4:7-12, 5:18; 1 John 2:20, 2:26-27

  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved unto eternal life, and they that are lost unto eternal punishment. Ephesians 1:13-14; Philippians 1:6, 2:13; Romans 5, 6, 8:28-39

  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ. 1 Corinthians 1:10; Acts 4:32

  • We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary sexes together reflect the image and nature of God. Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person. Genesis 1:26-27

  • We believe the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. We believe that marriage between one man and one woman, for life, uniquely reflects Christ’s relationship with His Church. We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other. We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. We believe that any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, cohabitation, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, or use of pornography) is outside of God’s design for humanity. We understand these actions to be sinful and offensive to God. We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. Genesis 2:18-25; Ephesians 5:21-33; 1 Corinthians 6:18; 7:2-5; Hebrews 13:4; Matthew 15:18-20; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; Acts 3:19-21; Romans 10:9-10; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31; Ephesians 4:32

  • We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life. Psalm 139, John 3:16
