GLOBAL YEAR, INC. // STATEMENT OF FAITH 

  1. We believe that all the Scriptures are verbally inspired of God, and are without error in the original writings, and they are the supreme and final authority for faith and life

  2. We believe in one God, Creator and sustainer of the universe, who is eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

  3. We believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, His death to pay the penalty for everyone’s sins, His bodily resurrection, His exaltation at God’s right hand, and His personal, imminent return.   

  4. We believe that all have sinned and are therefore guilty before God and are under His condemnation. 

  5. We believe that all who by faith receive Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit, therefore children of God and eternally saved, and that the Holy Spirit dwells within every believer to enlighten, guide, and enable the believer in life, testimony, and service.  We believe that God answers the prayers of His people and meets their needs according to His purpose. 

  6. We believe that salvation is eternally secured by the finished work of Christ and the cross and by His intercessory work at the right hand of God. 

  7. We believe that God gives spiritual gifts to all believers for the building up of the body of Christ and extending His kingdom. 

  8. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, eternal life with Christ of the saved in heaven and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost in hell. 

  9. We believe that all believers are called to a life of separation from all worldly and sinful practices and alliances. 

  10. We believe in the authority of the local church as the institution ordained by God to evangelize the world and disciple followers of Jesus.
