  • Joy El Camps and Retreats Statement of Faith

    A. We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be the eternal and verbally Inspired Word of God, without error. B. We believe the Lord Jesus Christ was fully God and fully man, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin; as God, co-equal and co-existent with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit. C. We believe all human beings are born with a sinful nature. Because of sin, each person deserves everlasting punishment. D. We believe Jesus Christ had no sin and did not sin. According to the Scriptures He was crucified, raised from the dead, and later returned to heaven. Through His blood the payment for our sins has been offered. E. We believe we become God's child by receiving Christ as our Savior by faith; this is a gift of God's love/grace. F. We believe that God, the Holy Spirit, is a Person who convinces sinners of guilt but who also, because of Christ's death, delights to bring sinners into right relationship with God at the moment of their belief. G. We believe in the visible, personal, and imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for His Church. H. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the believer and the unbeliever, the everlasting bliss of God's children, and the everlasting punishment of those who reject God.
