There is only one God, the creator and sustainer of all things. He is perfect and eternal. His Word is perfect and is the inspired, inerrant, final authority for all matters about which it speaks.
Helping hurting people heal requires:
- Loving every person despite the struggles in their life.
- Loving people enough to address destructive thoughts and behaviors.
Peace and assurance in the midst of struggles, hurt and pain are found in Jesus Christ alone, because of his death and resurrection. These acts alone provide justification, forgiveness and salvation for all who have faith in Jesus.
The Holy Spirit is the agent of renewal for all believers in Jesus Christ. Jesus said in John 14:16 “I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.”
Every person has intrinsic value and worth because:
- We are created by God in His image.
- Jesus gave us worth through the act of laying down His life at the cross.
We believe that we are to reflect Jesus in sacrificial loving and living and that we have the ability to speak value and truth into the lives of those we counsel.
