STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe…

…  in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit;

…  Jesus, the Son of God, is the Christ;  as God incarnate, He paid the penalty for our sins;  He rose from the dead and is coming again;

…  the Holy Spirit regenerates and transforms the Christian, which results in the believer demonstrating the fruit of maturity by loving and serving God and others;

…  the Bible is the only authoritative and inspired word of God, the infallible rule of faith and conduct for all Christians;

…  as members of the body of Christ all Christians are to cooperate with one another in love in order to accomplish His work on earth.

 

STATEMENT OF UNITY

 Christian Encounter Ministries promotes unity in the Body of Christ.  Therefore, we have two policies which all staff, interns, trainees and volunteers agree to honor:

 (1)       Since we work with churches and colleges holding differing opinions concerning certain ministry gifts of the Holy Spirit, leaders at Christian Encounter Ministries, regardless of personal convictions or experiences, agree not to exercise the gifts of tongues, interpretation of tongues, or prophecy during group worship or studies at CEM.

 (2)       Immersion is the only mode of baptism used at CEM when a believer desires to be baptized into Christ.
