The Creed of Withered Hand Ministries!
We believe the Bible, consisting of 66 books, to be the divinely inspired Word of God that is without error. We believe it to be the revelation of His will for the salvation of men and women. We believe that it is the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.
We believe in one God existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. An example would be water, ice, and steam. God has always been and will always be the only true and living God. There were none before Him and shall be none after Him.
God The Father
We believe that the Father created all things in Heaven and in Earth. He created human beings out of a love and desire that they might have a personal relationship with him and be adopted into his royal family.
We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
We believe and teach that Jesus lived a sinless life and died on the cross as the supreme sacrifice for our sins.
We believe and teach that He arose bodily from the dead and ascended into Heaven to represent us before the throne of God.
We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to convict men and women, making them aware of their sin and the salvation available to them through Christ Jesus. He empowers the believer for Godly living and service.
We believe that man was created in the image of God and sinless, but fell into sin and is therefore lost and subject to judgment.
We believe man can do nothing to save himself but he can allow the death of Jesus Christ to take the place of his own eternal damnation by acknowledging God, turning from his sin and accepting the free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord.
We believe that the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ provides the only way of justification and salvation for all who believe.
We believe that any who attach additional works of man as a requirement for salvation are false in that they infer Jesus’ death is insufficient in and of itself to save and that human beings somehow have the capability to save themselves through their good works.
Accepting the Sinner
We believe that no sin is too big for God to forgive.
As Christians we should be open and eager to share the Gospel with everyone regardless of their sin or affliction.
We believe that holiness is a way of life and a guiding light to the lost that they may be able to find their way to the cross of Jesus Christ.
