WHAT WE BELIEVE

LAKE WAUBESA BIBLE CAMP

FAITH AND DOCTRINE STATEMENT

  1. Holy Scripture:

    We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally

inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original writings, infallible and God-breathed.

(II Timothy 3:16,17; II Peter 1:20,21)

  1. Godhead:

    We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,

the same in nature, power and glory. (Deuteronomy 6:4; II Corinthians 13:4)

  • The person and work of Christ: We believe the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.

(John 1:1,2,14; Luke 1:35) By His death, burial and resurrection He accomplished full, complete and eternal salvation for man, and is now our High Priest, exalted at His Father’s right hand. (Romans 3:24,25; I Peter 1:3-5; Acts 1:9,10; Hebrews 9:24) We believe in the literal, physical return of Christ to establish His kingdom. (I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 19:11-16)

  • The person and work of the Holy Spirit: We believe the Holy Spirit baptizes all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption. (John 16:8-11; I Corinthians 12:13)
  1. Salvation:

    We believe man was created in the image and likeness of God, but through the agency of

Satan, God’s declared enemy, man sinned in the person of Adam; and all men since have inherited a

sin nature and are unable to remedy their lost condition. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:22-23; 5:12)

We believe salvation is the free gift of God, accomplished by His Son Jesus Christ, and that it is

appropriated by faith in His finished work alone. (Ephesians 2:8-10)

  1. Eternal Security:

    We believe all of the redeemed are kept by God’s power and are thus secure in

Christ forever. (John 6:37-40; 10:27-30; Romans 8:1, 38-39)

  1. Separation:

    We believe all of the saved should live in a manner that will not bring reproach upon

their Savior and Lord. (II Timothy 3:1-5; Romans 12:1,2; 14:13; I John 2:15-17; II John 9-11;

    II Corinthians 6:14-7:1)

  1. Spiritual Gifts:

    We believe God is sovereign in the bestowment of all His gifts and that all believers

in Jesus Christ have at least one spiritual gift (I Cor. 12:4-11) which is given for the edification of

the body of Christ (I Cor. 12:7).

  1. The Church:

    We believe the Church is God’s ordained body and the espoused bride of Christ, a

spiritual organism made up of all born-again persons of this present age. (Ephesians 1:22,23;

    5:25-27; I Corinthians 12:12-14: II Corinthians 11:2)

  1. The Eternal State:

    We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life and the

unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment. (Matthew 25:46; John 5:28,29; 11:25,26;

    Revelation 20:5,6,12,13)
