Statement of Faith

The Society adopts and subscribes to the following statement of belief namely the revelation of God as given in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament and confess the faith therein set forth and summarized in such historic statements of the Christian Church as the Apostles and Nicene Creeds. The members agree that the following doctrines are crucial to the understanding and proclamation of the Gospel and to practical Christian living and are the essential doctrines of the Christian faith, namely:

  1. The sovereignty and grace of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and creation, providence, revelation, redemption and final judgment;
  2. The divine inspiration of Holy Scripture and its consequent entire trustworthiness and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct;
  3. The universal sinfulness and guilt of human nature since the fall, making man subject to God’s wrath and condemnation;
  4. The substitutionary sacrifice of the incarnate Son of God as the sole ground for redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin;
  5. The justification of the sinner by the grace of God through faith alone in Christ crucified and risen from the dead;
  6. The illuminating, regenerating, indwelling and sanctifying work of God the Holy Spirit in the believer;
  7. The unity and common priesthood of all true believers, who together form the one universal Church, the Body of which Christ is the Head.
  8. The expectation of the personal, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  9. The mandate to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that is commanded.

Matters of Faith and Practice

Gender and Sexuality: Some of Mission Central's events, including conference seminars, have addressed issues related to gender and sexuality as they pertain to ministry, singleness, education in schools, and more. While Mission Central holds a traditional view of marriage between one woman and one man, we also intentionally invite others to the table who may disagree with us. We consider dialogue and collaboration within the Church to be of great value, and seek to find areas of common ground as we follow our Lord whose name we share.
