Statement of Faith
The Core Values of Alpha Prison Ministries
Alpha Prison Ministries affirms its uncompromising loyalty to the inspired Word of God. The following sets forth a general summary of what we believe. Board members, staff, and volunteers must be in complete sympathy with this Statement of Faith and must affirm and sign a copy of it with the secretary.
WE BELIEVE that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired of God and are without error as originally written, and they are the only infallible rule of faith and practice for the Christian.
WE BELIEVE in one God, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and we believe that these three are co-existent and of equal dignity and power.
WE BELIEVE in the deity of Jesus Christ; His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit, His sinless, perfect life, His vicarious and substitutionary death through the shedding of His blood on the Cross of Calvary, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, His present ministry as High Priest and Advocate, and His personal and imminent return, "Our Blessed Hope"; and we believe that all things shall finally be subjected to God through Him.
WE BELIEVE that man was created by and for God; that by disobeying God, man became a sinner and thereby incurred spiritual death, which is separation from God, and physical death as a consequence; and that all the human race are born in sin and are sinners by nature and practice.
WE BELIEVE that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, as a vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.
WE BELIEVE in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit indwelling all believers and thus enabling and empowering the life and ministry of the Christian.
WE BELIEVE in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
WE BELIEVE that the church is an elect company of believers and that it is the body of Christ having been formed by the work of the Holy Spirit of all those who trust Christ as their Savior.
WE BELIEVE in view of Christ s last command, known as THE GREAT COMMISSION, and the lost condition of all those who fail to accept the Gospel, that it is our mission to preach the Gospel to the whole world.
In addition to our Statement of Faith above which outlines what we believe, we are pleased to include other resources. We desire to help you any way we can, whether it is connecting you with right people or group, answering questions, or providing materials to strengthen your faith. You can find plenty of help on our site or contact us for specific needs.
Perhaps you are simply wondering, "What exactly is true Christianity?" If it has never been explained to you, or maybe the details so far have been confusing, you can now discover the answers to that mystery.
Some of the other materials we offer will be an asset to you as well. If you have questions about faith and God, or just want to grow in your faith, our links and resources will provide answers, study guides, and tools to help you. These resources also enable us to help you in ways that exceed the scope of this ministry itself.
