Statement of Faith

We, the entire leadership of Love in Action, commit ourselves without reservation to the statement of belief as herein set forth:

  • We believe Holy Scripture to be the Word of God inspired by the Holy Spirit
  • We believe in the Triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
  • We believe in the Virgin Birth and the Deity of Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, who is also Son of Man, with two distinct natures in one Person forever
  • We believe the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ on the cross made atonement for the sin of the world, sufficient for all who repent and believe
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ
  • We believe that man was originally created in the image of God and fell into sin through the first Adam
  • We believe that we are saved through Christ. Our actions, our works, flow from our redemption in Christ and the presence of the Holy Spirit within us
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all who receive Jesus Christ as both Savior and Lord and guides our journey of faith
