Statement of Faith

The following, including the affirmation of the full trustworthiness of Scripture, which in its original writing was verbally inspired and without error, shall be the basis of faith and practice of the United Christian Giving board of directors.

1. The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the written record of His supernatural revelation of Himself to men, absolute in its authority, complete in its revelation, final in its content and without any errors in its teaching.

2. All men in their natural state are lost, alienated from God, spiritually dead: "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).

3. Salvation is only by grace, a free gift of God, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, who died for our sins according to the Scriptures (I Corinthians 15:3). Those who thus receive Christ by faith have their sins forgiven (Ephesians 1:7), their hearts cleansed (Acts 15:9), are born of the Spirit, become children of God (John 1:12-13), are made new creatures in Christ (II Corinthians 5:17).

4. God is One God, Who reveals Himself in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ, as the Scriptures affirm, is the Son of God and Son of Man, was born of a virgin, and is Himself very God. The Scriptures also declare the deity and personality of the Holy Spirit.

5. Our Lord Jesus rose from the dead in the same body that was to rest in the tomb (John 20:25-27). The bodies of all believers who die will be raised from the dead, and they will receive an incorruptible body like unto His glorious body (I Corinthians 15:53; Phil. 3:21). All other men shall be raised unto "the resurrection of judgment" (John 5:28-29).

6. Christians, born of the Spirit, are to live the new life in the present power of the Spirit: "If we live by the Spirit, by the Spirit let us also walk" (Galatians 5:16-25; Col 2:6). The Christian's responsibility, and his normal attitude of life is to yield himself to God (Romans 6:13), trusting Christ to keep him.

7. Christian "living" includes Christian service, the winning of souls around us, and preaching of the Gospel in the uttermost parts of the earth. In carrying on this work there is needed the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit, which is granted to every believer as he yields and trusts (Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 12:7; Ephesians 6:18-19).

8. Jesus Christ will come again on earth the second time (Hebrews 9:28), personally (Acts 1:11; I Thess. 4:16), bodily (Acts 1:11; Col 2:9) and visibly (Matthew 26:64; Revelations 1:7).

We the executive board and advisory board of United Christian Giving Inc do hereby subscribe to this Doctrinal Standard, which expresses our own personal and corporate convictions of Christian truth.
