JAMA'S DOCTRINAL STATEMENT
in the Scripture of the Old and New Testaments as inspired Word of God, and inherent in the original writings and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.
in one God, eternally existing in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man.
man was created in the image of God; male and female He created them; that man have sinned, and thereby incurred, not only physical death but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature.
that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scripture, as representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and all that believe in him are justified by faith on the grounds of his shed blood.
in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven and in His present life there for us, as High Priest and Advocate.
that the Lord Jesus Christ presently rules as Head of the Church.
in the blessed hope of the Second Coming of our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ, as promised in the Scripture.
that all who receive by faith Jesus Christ as Lord are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.
in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.
church is established by Jesus Christ in order to preserve God’s goodness, to carry out Christ’s work, and to promote God’s Kingdom here on earth; therefore, all ministries should be church-centered or supplementary to the ministries of the church.
