What we believe
Faith Walk Ministry is not connected with any denomination or association but seeks to function in cooperation with all churches that are committed to the Christian faith. The Ministry’s desire is to operate under the authority of the Bible, the Word of God.
We believe the Scriptures of the Old Testament and the New Testament are the Word of God and are inspired of God, inerrant in the original writings, and that they are the absolute and final authority in faith and life.
John 17:17; Galatians 3:16; 2 Timothy 3:16–17; 2 Peter 1:19–21
We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, each having exactly the same character, power, and purity.
Matthew 28:19–20; John 1:1–2; Acts 5:3–4; Colossians 2:9
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man. He was eternally begotten of the Father, conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary. We believe that Jesus Christ died for the sins of the whole world as the substitutionary sacrifice, that His crucified body was raised from the dead, and that He ascended into heaven to appear before the Father as our High Priest, Advocate, and Mediator.
Luke 1:35; Romans 9:5; 1 Corinthians 15:1–3; Philippians 2:6-11; Colossians 1:15–17, 2:9; Hebrews 4:15, 9:24; 1 Timothy 2:5; 1 Peter 1:3, 2:24, 3:18; 1 John 2:2
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit came on the Day of Pentecost, indwelling every believer. In this age, the Holy Spirit carries out the ministries of restraining evil in the world; convicting people of sin, righteousness, and judgment; regenerating and indwelling all believers; baptizing them into the Body of Christ; sealing them unto the day of redemption; and empowering them for sanctification and service.
John 14:16–17, 16:7–15; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 6:19, 12:13; Ephesians 2:20-22, 4:4– 6, 30; Titus 3:5
We believe God created male and female in His image and that Adam sinned and in so doing incurred the judgment of both physical death and spiritual death, which is eternal separation from God. All human beings, with the exception of Christ Jesus, are born with a sin nature, are accountable for their sin, and need to be born again.
Genesis 1:1, 26; Psalm 51:5; Jeremiah 17:9, John 3:3–7; Romans 3:10–12, 5:12; Ephesians 2:1–10; 1 John 1:8–10
We believe that salvation was provided for everyone in the whole world and was accomplished entirely by the finished work of Christ shedding His blood upon the cross, and no work on the part of any person can earn this salvation. Whoever believes totally in the finished work of Jesus Christ receives the new birth, becomes a partaker of the divine nature, and becomes a child of God, once for all, forever.
John 3:16, 6:37, 10:27–30; 2 Corinthians 5:14; Ephesians 2:8–9; 1Timothy 2:3–6; 1 Peter 1:18–19, 23; 2 Peter 1:3–4
We believe in the return of Jesus Christ to rapture the Church Age saints, followed by the tribulation period, and the visible return of Jesus Christ with His saints for His millennial reign on earth. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, in the reward and everlasting conscious blessedness of the just, and in the judgment and everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.
