Statement of Faith

Women In Discipleship

We, cofounders of Women in Discipleship, affirm and believe:

The Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God,

That there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,

In the deity of Jesus Christ, 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 in power and glory,

That the Holy Spirit, third person of the Godhead, indwells, seals, empowers, guides, teaches, and perfects all those who become children of God through Christ,

That man and woman were the direct creation of God, made in the divine image, and that by transgression became fallen creatures, alienated from the life of God, universally sinful by nature and practice, and having within themselves no means of recovery,

That salvation is the free gift of God’s grace, received through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, in whom all those who believe have eternal life, a perfect righteousness, adoption in the family of God, membership in the body of Christ, and every spiritual blessing needed for life and godliness; but those who reject the gift of grace in Christ shall be forever separated from the presence of God,

That all are given the spiritual gifts, and these gifts are not based upon biological gender nor ethnicity.

And that Christian character and conduct are the expression of one’s relationship with Christ and one’s life in the community of Christ; and therefore Christians are bound to honor Christ’s Word, to walk as he walked, to keep his commandments and ordinances, and thus bear the fruit of the Spirit, which is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness and self-control.
