Statement of faith

ACS believes and holds dear the following Statement of Faith:

1. That there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit;

2. That the Bible is the inspired and authoritative Word of God;

3. In the creation of the world and of man by the direct act of God;

4. In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and His personal return in power and glory;

5. That everyone has sinned and that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential for salvation;

6. In salvation by grace through faith, in that salvation is received only by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, apart from any works of the law or human merit;

7. In the continuing ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life;

8. In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they who are saved, into eternal life and they who are lost, into eternal separation from God; and

9. In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
