Statement of Faith
Statement of Faith!
At Life Church Muskoka, we believe in the one true and living God, who eternally exists as three persons in perfect unity and harmony - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that the Bible is the inspired and authoritative Word of God and that it is the infallible rule of faith and practice for all Christians.
We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death on the cross through His shed blood, in His triumphant resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, His continuing intercession for believers, and in His awaited return in power and glory. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. The original perfection of creation was marred by the Fall of humanity, introducing a corruptness that can only be remedied by repentance and regeneration through grace and faith in Christ. Those who do not accept this path of repentance and regeneration will remain separated from God for eternity.
Believers are justified and sanctified through the finished work of Jesus Christ. This justification and sanctification ensures that believers remain secure in their relationship with Him and gives them the assurance of being resurrected in an incorruptible body in the future. The Sacraments of Baptism by immersion and of the Lord’s Supper are also important elements of the Christian faith, as these sacraments are symbols of the believer's commitment to Jesus Christ. Baptism is a public declaration of faith, while the Lord's Supper is a remembrance of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Both of these sacraments are essential elements of Christian life and faith.
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a supernatural experience where believers receive the power and presence of the Holy Spirit, enabling them to carry out the mission of the Church. This experience is often accompanied by supernatural signs, such as speaking in tongues, prophecy, and other gifts given by the Holy Spirit. These gifts are given to build up the Church and to empower its members to serve others in the world. These gifts are meant to be used in unity and harmony within the body of believers and are to be used to bring glory to God.
Christ's leadership of the Church encompasses the roles of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, Teachers, and Elders. These roles are intended to foster unity, maturity, and growth within the Church. As followers of Christ, we also have the privilege and responsibility of wise stewardship of the gifts and resources that God has given us, including the practice of tithing and giving offerings to the local Church.
