What We Believe
FECG Statement of Faith
We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as being the inspired Word of God and completely inerrant in its original writings. They are the ultimate and final authority in faith and Christian living.
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. And the Father is the Almighty God who created and sustains the whole universe through the Son and in the Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, He was begotten of the Holy Spirit and was born of the Virgin Mary. He is true God and true man. He was crucified; he died and was buried for the atonement of sin. He rose again from the dead on the third day, and ascended bodily into heaven as our Priest and Advocate. He will return bodily to earth.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the triune Godhead. He is the Comforter who guides and inspires us to accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. He leads and enlightens us in understanding God's Word and He also guides and inspires our daily walk with God.
We believe that humankind was created in the image of God. Humankind sinned and fell, thereby incurring not only physical death but also that spiritual death which is separation from God. All humans are born with a sinful nature.
We believe that all who repent of their sins and receive by faith Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are born of the Holy Spirit and thereby become the children of God.
We believe that the local church is the gathering of the redeemed believers on the earth in a certain locality and is a part of the Universal Church of God. We believe in the principle of separation of Church and State, guaranteeing an individual’s freedom to choose one’s own faith.
We believe that every redeemed believer is commissioned to witness and make disciples both locally and world‑wide.
We believe that every redeemed believer is to be the light and salt of the earth. Thus, believers should lead a life that demonstrates, upholds and aids the welfare and justice of society.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the believer and of the non‑believer, the everlasting blessedness of the believer and the everlasting conscious punishment of the non‑believers.
