declaration of faith
These core beliefs form the foundation upon which all of our ministry efforts rest:
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word, the only infallible and authoritative
of God revealing God’s love to the world. 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy
3:15-17; John 3:16.
We believe there is one God, existing eternally in three persons: Father,
Son and Holy Spirit. Matthew 28:19; John 10:30; Ephesians 4:4-6.
We believe in the divinity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in his virgin birth, in his
sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His
shed blood on the cross, in his bodily resurrection, in his ascent to the
right hand of the Father, and in his personal return in power and glory.
Matthew 1:23; John 1:1-4 and 1:29; Acts 1:11 and 2:22-24; Romans 8:34; 1
Corinthians 15:3-4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 1:1-4 and
We believe that all men everywhere are lost and facing the judgment of God, that
Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and only for the salvation of the lost
and sinful man, repentance from sin and faith in Jesus Christ bring
regeneration by the Holy Spirit. Moreover, we believe that God will reward the
righteous of eternal life in heaven, and that he will banish the unrighteous
to eternal punishment in hell. Luke 24:46-47; John 14:6; Acts 4:12;
Romans 3:23; 2 Corinthians 5:10-11; Ephesians 1:7 and 2:8-9; Titus 3:4-7.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, whose dwelling in us allows
the Christian to live a godly life. John 3:5-8; Acts 1:8 and 4:31; Romans 8:9;
1 Corinthians 2:14; Galatians 5:16-18; Ephesians 6:12; Colossians 2:6-10.
We believe in the resurrection of the saved and the lost; saved him to
the resurrection of eternal life and the lost until the resurrection of damnation
and eternal punishment. 1 Corinthians 15:51-57; Revelation 20:11-15.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and that
all true believers are members of His body, the church. 1 Corinthians 12:12,
27; Ephesians 1:22-23.
We believe that the ministry of evangelism (sharing and proclaiming the message
of salvation only possible by grace through faith in Jesus Christ) and
discipleship (helping followers of Christ grow to maturity in Christ) is a
responsibility of all followers of Jesus Christ. Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8;
Romans 10:9-15; 1 Peter 3:15.
We believe that God’s plan for human sexuality should only be expressed in the
context of marriage, that God created man and woman as unique biological persons
made to complement each other. God instituted monogamous marriage between man and
the woman as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society.
For this reason, we believe that marriage is exclusively the union of a
genetic male and a genetic female. Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:5-6; Mark 10:6-
9; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9.
We believe that we should dedicate ourselves to prayer, to the service of our
Lord, to his authority over our lives and ministry of evangelism.
Matthew 9:35-38; 22:37-39 and 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Romans 10:9-15 and 12:20-21;
Galatians 6:10; Colossians 2:6-10; 1 Peter 3:15.
We believe that human life is sacred from conception to natural end; and
that we must concern ourselves with the physical and spiritual needs of our fellow human beings.
Psalm 139:13; Isaiah 49:1; Jeremiah 1:5; Matthew 22:37-39; Romans 12:20-21;
Continuing the lifelong work of Billy Graham, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association exists to sustain and extend the evangelistic call and ministry of Franklin Graham in proclaiming the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to all by every means effective at our disposing and equipping the church and others to do the same.
