Faith Statement

We here in the EEUC affirm:-

  1. The divine inspiration, truthfulness and authority of both Old and New Testament Scriptures in their entirety as the only written inspired Word of God, without error in all that it affirms. The Bible is the complete revelation of God’s will for salvation, the only infallible rule of faith and practice, and the ultimate authority by which every realm of faith, practice, order of worship, human knowledge and endeavor should be judged. Therefore, it is to be believed in all that it teaches, obeyed in all that it requires, and trusted in all that it promises.20:1; 34:1, 15-17, 27; 31:18; 2 Sam.23:2; 1 Chron.28:19; Jer.36:1-4; Lk.9:35; Jn.17:8; 2 Tim.3:16-17; Heb.1:1-4; 1 Pet.1:28; 2 Pet.1:3, 21; Rev.1:17-19.
  1. Faith in one God, Creator of all things, holy, living, infinitely perfect, immutable, omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient, divine and eternally existing in a loving unity of three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Having limitless knowledge and sovereign power, God has graciously purposed from eternity to redeem a people for himself and to make all things new for spirit-filled own glory. Gen.1:1-28; 11:7; Deut.6: 4-5; Ps.139:7-12; Is.40:28; Mt.28:19-20; Lk.3: 21-22; Jn.14:16, 17:11; Acts 14:15; 17:24-29; Col.1:15-17; Deut.6:4-5; Is.44:6-8; 45:5; Mt.3:16-17; 28:19-20; Jn.14:16; 2 Cor.13:14, Eph.4:6.
  1. God the Father is not limited in any way and will not be limited. He is the Creator of all, Lord and Ruler, Sustainer of the universe, living in unapproachable light, loving Father, faithful to his promises, trustworthy God, and has sent his only Son to save the world. Gen. 3:16; 22:15-18; Ex.33:20; Num.23:19; Isa.40:12; 45:18-19; Jn.1:18; 3:16; Acts 3:25-26; 1 Tim.6:16.
  1. God the Son is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the Son of God the Father. Jesus Christ is perfect God and perfect man with the two natures united in one person when He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He lived a sinless human life, suffered, was crucified and died an atoning, redeeming death for our sins. He was buried and rose on the third day in power and glory. He appeared to many and ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father in glory and will come in glory and power to judge the living and the dead. 1:20-25; Lk.2:4-7; Jn.1:1-4, 14-18; Col.3:1.
  1. Jesus Christ is the mediator between God and humanity. Salvation comes through him alone. 1 Jn.2:1; 1 Tim.2:5, 3:16.
  1. The work of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and that by his indwelling and presence believers are empowered for holy living and effective ministry.
  1. Human beings were created in the image of God but fell into sin that separates all people from God. Sinful humans can only be reconciled with God by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
  1. The unity of all believers in the Body of Christ, visibly manifest in the Church and made up of all people who have been regenerated by the power of the Holy Spirit. We believe that the Church of Christ is His body, holy, universal, and of which all true believers are members. In its earthly and local expression it is a congregation of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ who associate together by covenant and fellowship of the gospel, who observe the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper, who exercise the gifts and privileges of His Word for mutual edification and the proclamation of the gospel throughout the world, and whose officers are elders and deacons. It is the privilege and responsibility of every believer to join and actively participate in the life of a local church. Mt.28:20; Acts 2:41, 47; 6:1-7; 11:21-23; 1Cor.1:1-13; 4:17; 14:23; 2Cor.8:1-5; Gal.6:2; 1Tim.3: Titus 1:6-9; 3 Jn.9.
  1. The return of our Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory, the resurrection of the body, the everlasting life and the judgment of all the dead and the living.
