Statement of Faith

APIIS holds to the great fundamental doctrines of the historic Christian faith, namely:

We believe in the plenary divine inspiration of the Scriptures in the original languages, their consequent inerrancy and infallibility and as the Word of God, the supreme and final authority in faith and life;

We believe in the one true eternal triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit;

We believe in the essential deity and the real and proper, but sinless humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ;

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and is true God and true man;

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ’s substitutionary, expiatory death, in that He gave His life “a ransom for many”;

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ’s resurrection from the dead in the same body in which He was crucified and the second coming of the same Lord Jesus Christ, bodily, in power and great glory;

We believe that salvation is the effect of the sovereign grace of God in regeneration by the Holy Spirit and the Word, through faith, not of works;

We believe in the everlasting bliss of the saved, and the everlasting suffering of the lost;

We believe in the spiritual unity of all redeemed by the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ;

We believe in the necessity of maintaining, according to God’s Word the purity of the Church, in doctrine and life; and still believing the Apostles’ Creed to be a statement of Scriptural truth, we therefore incorporate in these articles of faith.
