CMN’s Doctrinal Statement of Faith
What We Believe.
We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired by God, and inerrant in the original writings, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.
2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:21, Psalm 19:7
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Genesis 1:26, Matthew 28:19, John 1:1-14, John 14:16
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary is true God and true man.
Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:18-25
We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death, which is eternal separation from God; and all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and in the case of those who reach moral responsibility, become sinners in thought, word and deed.
Genesis 1:26-27, Romans 3:10,23
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scripture, as a representative and substitution sacrifice; and all who believe in Him are justified because of His shed blood.
1 Corinthians 15:3, Romans 5:1, Hebrews 9:22
We believe 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.
1 Corinthians 15:4, Hebrews 3:1, Hebrews 7:25
We believe in “that blessed hope” – the personal, premillennial and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and so become children of God.
Ephesians 2:8-9, John 1:12
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust; and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Revelation 20:12-15
We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity should be engaged outside of a marriage between one man and one woman. We believe that any form of fornication, adultery, pornography, homosexuality, bisexuality, transgender, bestiality, and incest are sinful perversions of God’s gift of sex.
1 Corinthians 6:9; Genesis 2:18, 24; Leviticus 18:22; Leviticus 20:12-16; Romans 1:26, 32; 1 Corinthians 6:18
The physical body God gave us in our mother’s womb, male or female, is who He intended us to be. We believe that these verses explain why abortion is taking the life of a real person.
