Statement of Faith
Gethsemane International Inc. holds to the following doctrinal truths
 
 


The Bible:
Scripture (the Bible) is the Inspired Word of God. Perfect and without error - true and trustworthy. It is our final authority.

God:
There is one and only one true, living God. God is the Eternal Creator of Life, Sovereign King, and Infinite in wisdom, knowledge, power, justice, and holiness. God eternally exists in three distinct persons - God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ:
Jesus is God in the flesh. Jesus was born of a virgin. Jesus lived without sinning. Jesus was the Substitutionary Atonement for Mankind. Jesus rose from the dead in bodily form on the third day as He said He would. Jesus is coming again to judge evil and establish His kingdom.
 
Holy Spirit:
God's Holy Spirit indwells every truly born-again Christian at the moment of conversion and baptizes that believer into the Family of Christ. The Holy Spirit is God's seal that guarantees the believer of their inheritance in Heaven. The Holy Spirit convicts of sin. For the believer the Holy Spirit acts as the guide, teacher, comforter, and counselor.
 
Mankind:
Man is the special creation of God, made in His own image. Man was created innocent of sin. Man freely chose to sin. Sin results in the separation of Mankind from God and results in Mankind's future punishment of eternity in a literal lake of fire.
 
Salvation:
Salvation involves both God's provision of a way to mend the results of Mankind's sin and Mankind's responsibility to properly respond. God loves Mankind and wishes that none receive their earned punishment. God is holy & just and therefore must punish sin. God, through His love, sent Jesus to take the punishment of sin for those who through faith confess their sins and trust Jesus. This Salvation is provided by God's grace alone and accredited to Mankind only through personal faith in Jesus.
