Christian Finance Faculty Association Statement of Faith

  • We accept the authority of the Word of God as the only infallible rule of faith and life.
    • 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21; John 10:35
  • We believe in one eternal and triune God. This God is Creator and Lord of the world governing all things according to the purpose of His will.
    • Matthew 28:19; Isaiah 40:28; Ephesians 1:11
  • We believe in only one Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
    • 1 Timothy 2:5,6; Galatians 1:6-9; John 3:16; Acts 4:12
  • We believe the Father sent the Holy Spirit to bear witness to the Son. Conviction of sin, faith in Jesus, new birth and Christian growth are all the Spirit’s work.
    • John 15:26,27; 16:8-11; 1 Corinthians 12:3; Acts 1:8; Galatians 5:22,23
  • We believe that God created man as male and female and that they were created in His image. We also believe that man fell into sin, yet he still bears God’s image. The present natural state of man is dead in sins and trespasses.
    • Genesis 1:27; 3:1-14; Romans 5:12; Ephesians 2:3; 4:18
  • We believe in the necessity of conversion — not of a particular conversion experience, for experiences vary — but of convertedness, in the sense of a quality of life that shows signs of repentance and faith and, thus, new birth.
    • Titus 3:4-7; John 3:4-8; Acts 2:37-39; 2 Timothy 2:25,26
  • We believe that God is both Creator and Judge of all men and nations. We therefore should share His love and concern for the world and its people. We believe that evangelism and citizenship are both part of our Christian responsibility. The salvation we claim should transform the totality of our personal and social responsibilities.
    • Acts 17:24-31; Matthew 5:14-16; Amos 5:21-24; Micah 6:8; James 2:14-26
