Statement of Faith

His Heart Missions works and ministers within many cross-cultural and inter-denominational contexts.  We place a high value on respecting the traditions of others, and demonstrating a spirit of love and understanding.  We do however; believe certain essential truths to be clearly taught in the Scriptures which should never be compromised.  We hold these truths as the standard of faith for our mission family members.

•    The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men and the Divine and final authority for Christian faith and life.

•    God is Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

•    Jesus Christ is true God and true man having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.  He died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures.  Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate.

•    The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this current age to convict men of their sin; regenerate the believing sinner; indwell, guide, instruct, and supernaturally empower the believer for the work of the ministry, godly living, and service.

•    Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is, therefore, lost and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.

•    The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and, thus, become children of God.

•    Water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the church during the present age.  They are, however, not to be regarded as means of salvation.

•    The true Church is composed of all such persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the Body of Christ of which He is the Head.

•    There will be a sudden, personal, visible, bodily return of our Lord Jesus Christ and this “Blessed Hope” has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer.

•    We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord; of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
