Doctrinal Position

Fairwood Bible Institute endorses the Christian doctrines outlined in the following:

STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe that the whole Bible is the inspired word of God and that it was given for the sake of revealing to us the character of the Father, His will, and His purpose for His creation. We believe that there is one God and that He exists in three Persons -- the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

We believe that all men are by nature sinners, destitute of all power to save themselves. We believe, therefore, that the only means of salvation of sinful men is the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit on the basis of the atoning work of Christ through personal faith in Him.

We believe in the Holy Spirit's personality and deity, and that He was sent forth from the Father to convict the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. We believe that He is come to regenerate, indwell, sanctify, instruct, and comfort the saints.

We believe that Jesus Christ was and is the eternal and only begotten Son of the Father; that His earthly existence began when He was supernaturally conceived in the womb of the Virgin Mary and born a babe in Bethlehem of Judea; that He took the form of man for the express purpose of offering His body as a sacrifice for the human race.

We believe that He lived a sinless life while on earth, though subject to the same temptations that we meet.

We believe that when He died, He was accepted by the Father as an offering for the sins of all men, that He rose from the dead in three days, and that this resurrection is the fact that established the justification of a believer in the eyes of our Holy God.

We believe in the personal, visible return of Christ to this earth in power and glory and that His return is imminent.
