Statement of Faith

This Statement of Faith is the Biblical doctrine on which the Mount Pleasant Church and Ministries and the Mt. Pleasant Christian School, Inc. are based. The Statement represents the key elements of Christianity that are taught and modeled without apology.
I. We believe that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, and only infallible, authoritative Word of God. (II Timothy 3:16)
II. We believe that there is one God eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (I John 5:5-7)
III. We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ is both God and man in one person. In His virgin birth, in His sinless life, and His miracles, in His bodily resurrection, in His Ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. He is our Redeemer. (I Corinthians 15:3, I Peter 2:21-24; John 3:16)
IV. We believe that God created man and all things that are good, visible and invisible, by the power of His Word. (Genesis 1, 2; John 1)
V. We believe that man, made in the image of God, is responsible to God in all things and has a unique and valuable place in the plan of God and must be highly esteemed and respected. (Colossians 1:15)
VI. We believe that all people are, in the unnatural state, lost and sinful and in need of regeneration by the Holy Spirit, faith in Jesus Christ and repentance toward God. (Romans 3:21-30; Galatians 4:4-7)
VII. We believe that the Christian is enabled to live a godly life by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. (Galatians 5:16, 18, 25)
VIII. We believe that there is a resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved, unto the resurrection of life; and they that are lost, unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:24, 28, 29)
IX. We believe that there is a spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (John 17:21-23)
