  • Our Statement of Faith

Shores of Grace Ministries is an evangelical Christian ministry. Although we are an independent ministry we have been greatly influenced by the Wesleyan/Methodist tradition. We seek to uphold and proclaim the historic and apostolic witness to the core beliefs of Christian teaching. The following is a brief summary of our statement of faith; for more comprehensive language we affirm the Nicene and Apostles’ Creeds as foundational statements of Christian faith and doctrine.


God

We believe in one almighty God, who has existed for all eternity in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God, who became fully man, born through the virgin Mary. We believe Jesus lived a sinless life and died for the sins of all, taking on himself the punishment we deserved. We believe Jesus rose from the dead conquering sin and death and now reigns over heaven and earth at the right hand of God the Father.

Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit is living and active in the world. We believe the Holy Spirit convicts of sin, reveals God’s truth and power, equips believers with spiritual gifts, and works to transform the lives of those who choose to follow Jesus Christ.

Bible

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, is our primary authority, and contains all truth necessary for faith and practice. We believe that God continues to speak to Christians today through prophecy, words of knowledge and other means. These contemporary words from God must be measured against the Scriptures.

Humanity

We believe human beings were created good and in the image of God, but that sin and disobedience has broken human nature. We stand separated from a perfect God when left to our own merit, but all can respond to God’s love and be restored in relationship with God as a gift of his grace.

Church

We believe the church is made up of all those who believe in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. The church is called to be the ongoing representation of God’s presence in the world where people experience the reality of God through his people.

Mission

We believe the Church is the body of Christ which has been reconciled to God in Christ and now carries the message and ministry of reconciliation. The church has been commissioned and charged to advance the Kingdom of God, to release captives, to heal the sick, to cast out demons, and to take the gospel of Jesus Christ to all nations, both near and far, in order to make disciples of all peoples that they may be baptized into the family of God in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
