Our Faith

FFM's Doctrinal Basis of Faith *

We believe in:
  1. The sovereignty and grace of the triune God, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit in creation, providence, revelation, redemption and final judgement.
  2. The divine inspiration and infallibility of the Old and New Testaments as originally given and their consequent entire trustworthiness and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
  3. The universal sinfulness and guilt of fallen man, making him subject to God's wrath and condemnation.
  4. The substitutionary sacrifice of Jesus Christ the incarnate Son of God as the sole and all-sufficient ground of redemption from the guilt and power of sin, and from its eternal consequences.
  5. The justification of the sinner solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ who was crucified and bodily raised from the dead.
  6. The illuminating, regenerating, indwelling and sanctifying work of God the Holy Spirit.
  7. The priesthood of all believers, who form the universal Church, the body of which Christ is the Head, and which is committed by His command to the proclamation of the Gospel throughout the world.
  8. The expectation of the personal, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory.

The Apostles' 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 Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sits on 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 Ghost; the holy catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.

 

** Affirming our adherence to The Apostles' Creed, in agreement with the historic doctrinal position of the Christian Church.
