Statement of Faith
A Statement of Faith is just a documents or set of documents what an organization or body of people believe. The Christian Furry Fellowship is at its heart evangelical which means that, at the very least, we hold to the following.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God; it is perfect, true, and God-breathed. The Bible is the final authority for faith and life (2 Timothy 3.16, 2 Peter 1.20-21, 2 Peter 3.15-16, Matthew 5.18)
We believe that man was created in the image of God. But by his voluntary sin, fell from his high and holy state; that as a result the human race was plunged into condemnation and death, so that now all human beings are born with a sinful nature; and that all become willful and willing sinners in thought, word, and deed and are without excuse before God (Genesis 1.26-27; Genesis 3.1-22, Romans 5:10-19, Psalm 51.5).
We believe that because of mankind’s sin, God sent His only son, Jesus Christ, to earth and was crucified on the cross, died, and on the third day rose again and ascended into heaven where he sits at the right hand of the Father (John 3.16; Mark 15.33-37, Mark 16.1-8, Mark 16.19-20)
We believe that the salvation of sinners is by the grace through faith in the blood sacrifice, death, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ; that all who receive Him are born again by the Holy Spirit and become children of God; that no ritual, ceremony, or work can be of use at all for the sinner’s salvation or make the believer’s salvation more secure; that Christ is the only and all sufficient Savior, and He will never leave those He saves (Ephesians 2.8-9, Titus 3.5-7, John 3.3, John 5.24, John 1.12, Romans 10.9-13, Acts 16.31, Acts 4:12, 2 Timothy 1.12, John 10.28-29, Romans 8.35-39, Philippians 1.6).
