Here at Lifeline Ministries we believe in the value of team. We must be playing with the same playbook in order to succeed in following our vision and staying on mission with Jesus. This is what we believe.
There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to one hope when you were called—one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. (Eph 4:4-6)
“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one. (John 17:20-22)
Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters. (Rom 14:1)
But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless. (Tit 3:9)
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:34-35)
I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought. (1 Cor 1:10)
We believe that God the Father holds all the attributes of God while exercising a unique role in the triune God. The Godhead is in agreement with the role of each: God as the Father, the Son as sacrifice, and the Spirit as power. He is the father of Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit, and yet still one with both as God The Father adopts believers into relationship wtith him as their Father. With Christ, believers have the privilege of being heirs to God’s glory. Scripture References: Luke 1:35; Matthew 3:17; Romans 8:15-17; John 15:1 and 2; Hebrews 12:7-11.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the world by dying on a cross. He rose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven’s glory and will return again someday to claim His church and take them to Heaven. Scripture References: Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:22-23; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Acts 1:9-11; Romans 1:3-4; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13; Hebrews 4:14-15
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truths, and guidance in doing what is right. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily. Scripture References: John 14:16-17, 16:7-13; Acts 1:8; Romans 5:5; 1 Corinthians2:12, 3:16; 2 Corinthians 3:17; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 1:13, 5:18
The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without and any mixture or error. The Bible is infallible, inerrant, and absolute truth. We listen and obey the Word of God. Scripture References: Psalms 12:6; 119:105, 160; Proverbs 30:5; 2 Timothy 1:13, 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21
Salvation is God’s free gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or by good deeds. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ and God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ as Lord of his life. The evidence of salvation is repentance, confession, baptism by water immersion, and a life committed to His service. Scripture References: John 1:12, 14:6; Romans 5:1, 6:23; Galatians 3:26; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5
