What we believe as a ministry and as a church body

The following are what we believe as a ministry and as a church body. An important part of serving in our ministry is that you understand and commit to our doctrinal beliefs. Please indicate whether or not you agree with each statement.
Question 1

About God: God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. Genesis 1:1,26,27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14

Question 2

About Man: Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like him in character. He is the supreme object of God's creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, because of mankind's original disobedience and betrayal, we are hard-wired to be disobedient toward God - this is called "sin." This presence of sin in men and women separates us. Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1,2

Question 3

About Eternity: Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is what hell means. To be eternally in union with him is eternal life. Heaven and hell are places of eternal existence. John 3:16; John 2:25; John 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; 1 John 5:11-12; Matthew 25:31-46

Question 4

About Jesus Christ: Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate his power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven's glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of kings, and Lord of lords. Matthew 1:22,23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14,15; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14,15; Titus 2:13

Question 5

About Salvation: Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin's penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1

Question 6

About the Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ, to exhibit the power of God, and to help us understand Jesus' words and deeds. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He gives Christians power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He enjoys partnering with Christians in furthering the work of His Kingdom. Christians seek to live under loving obedience to Him, and in close intimacy with Him, every day. 2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16,17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:1

Question 7

About the Bible: The Bible is God's word to all men. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error. 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20,21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5

Ministry Leadership Commitment

After observing the ministry, praying, and discussing with my family the commitment involved with volunteering, I choose to commit to the following:
Question 1

I acknowledge the Lordship of Jesus Christ in my life, and I have a personal relationship with God through faith in Christ.

Question 2

I am committed to growing and maturing in my relationship with God through quiet times, active attendance at church, and involvement in accountability. I am committed to stop serving if, at any time, my personal spirituality becomes compromised.

Question 3

I am committed to a lifestyle that is both godly and above reproach. I commit to making wise choices. I realize that my lifestyle and decisions are a model for others.

Question 4

I am committed to attending the mandatory leader meetings throughout the year.

Question 5

I will make a committed attempt to help recruit at least one other adult volunteer for the growing needs in our ministry.

Question 6

I will not post any pictures of minor children on my personal blog, website or Facebook.

Question 7

I will not post anything on my personal blog, website, or Facebook that would be damaging to the reputation of Cape Christian.

Question 8

I understand the philosophy of Cape Christian and agree with its purpose and commit to shepherding the people who God brings to me. I commit to rejecting divisive behavior. I commit to bringing my disagreements, concerns, or problems about the ministry to my leader without talking or gossiping to peers, volunteers, or church members.

Question 9

Because I am making a significant commitment and my presence is important, I agree to be consistent and timely to the program(s) I commit myself to. I also agree to communicate in advance if I will be absent.
