LIGHT IN THE DARK MINISTRIES' BELIEVES THE FOLLOWING TO BE TRUE... WE HAVE NOTHING TO ADD TO WHAT HAS ALREADY BEEN ESTABLISHED AS "ORTHODOXY" CONCERNING THE CHRISTIAN FAITH. EXCEPT OF COURSE OUR OBEDIENCE TO THOSE THINGS THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN LAID AS THE FOUNDATION FOR US TO BUILD OUR LIVES UPON...
THE APOSTLE'S CREED
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried;* the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic** church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
THE NICENE CREED
We believe in one God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, Very God of Very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father by whom all things were made; who for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary, and was made man, and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate. He suffered and was buried, and the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures, and ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of the Father. And he shall come again with glory to judge both the quick and the dead, whose kingdom shall have no end.
And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life, who proceedeth from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified, who spoke by the prophets. And we believe one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins. And we look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
STATEMENT of FAITH
Concerning God: We believe there is one God, who eternally exists in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Concerning the Bible: We believe the 66 books of the Old and New Testament are the authoritative Word of God based on an inspired text without error in the original texts.
Concerning the Person and Work of the Lord Jesus Christ: We believe in the full deity and humanity of 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 where He intercedes for us, and in His personal return in power and glory.
Concerning the Human Condition: We believe all human beings are lost and sinful by nature. Consequently, salvation can only be accomplished by God’s grace through regeneration and justification by the Holy Spirit. Salvation cannot be earned. It is a gift from God, received only by faith in Jesus Christ.
Concerning the Present Work of the Holy Spirit: We believe the indwelling Holy Spirit works the regeneration, sanctification and preservation of the Christian. His ministry is to glorify Jesus Christ and empower the believer for godly living and service.
Concerning the Spiritual Unity of Believers: We believe the Church is the body of Christ of which He is the Head.
Concerning the Future: We believe in the bodily resurrection of the saved unto eternal life and the lost to eternal condemnation.
THE BIBLE/The Old and New Testaments
The Bible is the final Authority for Matters of Belief and Conduct: The Bible itself, as the inspired, inerrant and infallible Word of God, speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality and the proper conduct of mankind, and is the sole and final source of all that we believe.
