As a reformed/biblical Christian I remain faithful to the orthodox fundamental tenants of the Christian faith affirming the early ecumenical councils, the Apostle’s, and Nicene Creeds. I embrace the five solos of the Reformation
Sola Scriptura - Scripture Alone
Solus Christus - Christ Alone
Sola Gratia - Grace Alone
Sola Fide - Faith Alone
Soli Deo Gloria - The Glory of God Alone
Unwarranted confidence in human ability is a product of fallen human nature … God’s grace in Christ is not merely necessary but is the sole efficient cause of salvation. We confess that human beings are born spiritually dead and are incapable even of cooperating with regenerating grace. We reaffirm that in salvation we are rescued from God’s wrath by his grace alone. It is the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit that brings us to Christ by releasing us from our bondage to sin and raising us from spiritual death to spiritual life. We deny that salvation is in any sense a human work. Human methods, techniques or strategies by themselves cannot accomplish this transformation. Faith is not produced by our unregenerate human nature. - Cambridge Declaration.
As an Evangelical I believe in the trustworthiness and authority of Scripture, against the tenets of liberalism and fundamentalism. Theologically, this means that I believe in the necessity and reality of the new birth, the centrality of Jesus Christ, his redemptive work displayed on the cross, and his resurrection from the dead.
By Continuist I mean that I believe all of the spiritual gifts contained in the New Testament continue to be operative for empowerment and effectiveness in church ministry today. I do not believe the spiritual gifts (miraculous) ceased (cessation).
