Christian Podcast Community Statement of Faith
The Word of God
The Bible is God’s special self-revelation, which is limited in space and time and are directed to various designated individuals (2 Peter 1:21). The accepted writings that make up the Bible are the 39 Old Testament books and 27 New Testament books without any of the additional writings commonly known as the Apocrypha. The Bible provides the only inerrant and absolutely authoritative propositional knowledge of God that exists.
Monotheism & the Trinity
There is but one living and true God (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 45:5-7; 1 Corinthians 8:4), an infinite, all-knowing Spirit (John 4:24), perfect in all His attributes, one in essence, eternally existing in three Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14), each equally deserving worship and obedience.
The Deity of Christ
In the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave, God confirmed the deity of His Son and gave proof that God has accepted the atoning work of Christ on the cross. Jesus’ bodily resurrection is also the guarantee of a future resurrection life for all believers (John 5:26-29; 14:19; Romans 1:4; 4:25; 6:5-10; 1 Corinthians 15:20, 23).
Salvation by Grace Alone
Salvation is wholly of God by grace because of the redemptive work of Jesus Christ, the merit of His shed blood, and not based on human merit or works (John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-10; 1 Peter 1:18-19).
A Biblical marriage consists only of a heterosexual union between one biological male and one biological female.
Men and Women’s roles in the Church and home
The Christian Podcast Community affirms the Biblical roles of men and women. Men and women are created as equal image-bearers of God, for complementary roles. Pastors and elders, according to Scripture, are to be qualified men.
Husbands are to be servant leaders in the home, and wives are called to voluntary submission to their own husbands.
We oppose egalitarianism.
