Statement of Faith

Central to Agape’s ministry are the core beliefs of our Christian faith. These are an integral part of what we are as an organization and of what we believe as individual members of the Agape family.

  1. We believe that the Bible in its entirety in the original writings is the inspired inerrant, infallible and authoritative Word of God. As such, we submit to it as the standard for our conduct.

  2. We believe in one God eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious death and our atonement through his shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His imminent personal return in power and glory.

  4. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, faith in the Lord Jesus Christ provides the only grounds for justification.

  5. We believe in the regenerating ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose power the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

  6. We believe in the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and eternal life.

  7. We believe in the spiritual unity of the Church, which is the Body of Christ, composed of all who are regenerated through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

  8. We believe in the reality of heaven, hell, and Satan, which gives urgency to Christ’s command to reach the world with the Gospel.
