This statement constitutes a guide of the fundamental beliefs of Heritage of Faith Ministries International. The programs and activities thereof shall at all times, be consistent with this statement.
The scriptures in their original form, both the Old and New Testament, are divinely inspired and are the revelation of God to man. All scripture is God-breathed by the Holy Spirit who inspired the authors, revealing to them what, He wanted written [Acts 1:16; 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:20-21].These are infallible truth, containing no contradiction or error. It is the final authority for faith, doctrine and life. The canon of the Bible is closed. Christians must remain receptive to the illumination of scriptural truth by the Holy Spirit [Matt. 5:17; Luke 4:17-21; 23:27,44; John 5:39; 1 Cor. 14:37; 2 Pet 3:15,16].
God is Spirit – infinite, eternal, uncreated and unchangeable in His being or attributes. In Him all things have their source, support and end [John 4:24; Ps. 102:25-27; Gen. 1:1,26; John 1:1-3; Heb. 1-3; Col. 1:15-17].There is one true God who has a plural nature – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit – all distinct personalities, all designated God [John 1:1,14,18; Heb. 1:18; Acts 5:3,4].The Bible does not teach that there are three Gods, but upholds the doctrine of the Trinity – one God who reveals Himself in three persons – equal in power and glory
[Gen. 1:26; Matt 3:16-17; 28:19; Acts 10:38; 1 Cor. 12:4-6].
