Statement of Faith
Here is our Statement of Faith, which we go by when determining who our Church clients are.
Statement of Faith
Below, you’ll find the categories with a drop-down of the description for each category. As a Church, in order to work with us, you’ll need to agree to this Statement of Faith.
All 66 books of the Bible were fully inspired by God and are very relevant for today. Deuterocanonical books aren’t inspired by God.
Salvation is found in no one other than Jesus Christ, who is God in human flesh and who died on the cross to save us from sin. When we are saved, we do not become gods. We are children of God.
The Church is the body of Christ, not just a building where people go to worship. The Church is comprised of different denominations, but there are some denominations that are not part of God’s Church that teach false doctrine. While we are to strive for unity, that unity is only found in Jesus Christ and the teachings found in the Bible. Unity apart from Christ is not unity. God created order within the Church, the Body of Christ. In meetings, not everyone is supposed to be leader, and the qualifications for a Pastor (blameless, husband of one wife, ruly children, not given to wine, etc.) are found in 1 Timothy 3:1-13 and Titus 1:6-11.
Sin entered the world in the Garden of Eden, when Satan tempted Adam and Eve to disobey God. When Eve ate the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil and Adam ate of it as well, all relations with God were cut off, but God has been faithful and let us enter again into His presence, through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, for the remission of our sins. While we are saved, and still do commit sins, we are not to be living a lifestyle of sin as Christians, and should not promote that either.
The Trinity is a man-made word to describe the triune aspect of God, being one in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God always existed in these forms, and will always exist in these forms. These phrases should not be changed to fit different cultures or others’ ways of thinking, as these are phrases coming from God’s Word, coming directly to us.
Our Stance on Diversity and Inclusion
Our official stance on diversity and inclusion in the Church is as follows:
Diversity and Inclusion: At FaithVenture Media, we emphasize the significance of diversity within the Church, recognizing that it encompasses a wide array of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. We believe that every individual, regardless of their background, is a valuable creation of God and should be treated with love and respect.
In light of our unwavering commitment to biblical truth and our specific theological perspective, we affirm the value and worth of every person while maintaining our stance that the practice and promotion of LGBTQ+ lifestyles are not in alignment with the biblical teachings we uphold.
Biblical Perspective: We firmly adhere to the teachings of the Bible as the authoritative source of our faith and practice. According to our interpretation of biblical principles, we hold the position that the practice and promotion of LGBTQ+ lifestyles are not in alignment with the Biblical teachings we uphold.
Unwavering Commitment to Biblical Truth: Our position on LGBTQ+ inclusion is unwavering and firmly rooted in our commitment to Biblical truth. We acknowledge that there may be differing viewpoints within the Christian community, but we hold steadfast to our understanding of the Bible.
Our mission is to empower Pastors and Church leaders to engage with their communities while maintaining fidelity to the Bible. We wholeheartedly support Churches in fulfilling their unique mission and impact, guided by their faith and unwavering commitment to Biblical principles.
In summary, FaithVenture Media maintains a specific theological perspective that regards LGBTQ+ inclusion within the Church as incompatible with Biblical teachings. Our organization is unapologetically committed to upholding our understanding of Biblical truth and guiding Churches in their service based on these principles.
