LMC Statement of Faith

Liebenzell Mission of Canada – Statement of Faith

Believe –
that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God – absolute in
authority and complete in revelation. 
The Holy Spirit gives understanding to the divine truth of the Bible.
God’s plan of redemption through the work of Jesus the Messiah is the central
theme of Scripture.

– that God is one God revealed in the triune Godhead: the Father, Son,
and Holy Spirit. 

God the Father is eternal and
almighty. By His Word he created heaven and earth.  He is Redeemer, King, and Judge.

Jesus Christ is Son of God and
Son of man.  He was born of a virgin by
the Holy Spirit.  He died on a cross, the
just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice.  He rose from the dead and ascended to the
majesty on high where He intercedes for us, our great High Priest.

The Holy Spirit brings glory
to Christ and not Himself.  He leads us
into all truth and empowers the believer for holy living.  He convicts the world of sin, righteousness,
and judgment.

– that mankind was created in the image of God but fell through
disobedience and came under the power of sin, death, and Satan.  Through faith in Jesus and His atoning
sacrifice, man is redeemed and reborn into the family of God.

– that the Church is the body and bride of Christ Jesus.  The Church consists of all those who are
redeemed through His blood and are born again by the Holy Spirit.  The Church has been commissioned by Jesus “to
go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father,
Son, and Holy Spirit, and teaching them to observe all that I have commanded
you.” Matthew 28:19,20

– that Jesus will return to earth a second time: personally, bodily,
and visibly.  His coming shall make
visible to all creation the triumph of His redemption plan.  He will institute the final judgment of all
mankind; those who do not believe will be separated from God’s presence, but
those who have believed on the Son of God, in glorified bodies, will live and
reign with Him forever.  Then shall the
eager expectation of creation be fulfilled and the whole earth will proclaim
the glory of God who creates a new heaven and a new earth.
