Statement of Faith

South Asian International Fellowship is committed to the foundational doctrines taken from Ephesians 4:1-6 and Hebrews 6:1-2.

THE BIBLE

We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God; that the sixty-six books, as originally written, comprising the Old and the New Testaments are entirely free from error; that the Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice and the true basis for Christian fellowship.

GOD

We believe in one God, Creator of all, holy, sovereign, eternal, existing in three equal Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

CHRIST

We believe in the absolute and essential deity of Jesus Christ, in His eternal existence with the Father in preincarnate glory, in His virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, triumphant ascension, mediatorial ministry and personal return.

THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe in the absolute and essential deity and personality of the Holy Spirit Who convinces of sin, of righteousness and of judgment; Who regenerates, sanctifies, illuminates and comforts those who believe in Jesus Christ.

SATAN

We believe that Satan exists as an evil personality, the originator of sin, the archenemy of God and man.

MAN

We believe that both man and woman were divinely created in the image of God; that both sinned, becoming guilty before God and thereby incurring physical and spiritual death on all mankind.

SALVATION

We believe that salvation is by the grace of our sovereign God; that by the appointment of the Father, Christ voluntarily suffered a vicarious, expiatory and propitiatory death; that justification is by faith alone in the shed blood of Christ on the cross, the all-sufficient sacrifice and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and that those whom God has effectively redeemed shall be divinely preserved and finally perfected in the image of God.

FUTURE THINGS

We believe in the personal, bodily and glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ; in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust; in the eternal blessedness of the redeemed and in the judgment and conscious, eternal punishment of the wicked.
