Our Beliefs

F&E is an interdenominational ministry for all Christians who want to grow in the power and promise of knowing and following Jesus Christ.  All Christians will certainly disagree about a great many things but we believe in the following essentials to the Christian faith.

  • We believe that God is the creator of the Universe and of all things.  God is all powerful and all knowing and everything submits to his will. (Psa.139:1-4; Sam2:6-9; Eph3:20; Psa.24:1)
  •  We believe that the 66 books of the bible are the true inspired word of God.  We do not acknowledge the Apocrypha, Psuedopigrapha, Gnostic Gospels, or the Book of Mormon to be “inspired scripture” (2Tim.3:16)
  •  We believe that Jesus was literally conceived and born of a virgin named Mary (Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:26-33).
  •  We believe that Jesus lived a sinless life (1 Pet. 2:22; 1 Jn. 3:5)
  •  We believe there is only one way to salvation and that is through our Lord Jesus Christ. (Rom.5:8)
  •  We believe “the bride of Christ” is the church and that Jesus is the head and governing body. (Eph.1:22-23)
  •  We believe in the Holy Trinity, 3 persons, 1 God.  God, the Father.  Jesus the son.  And the Holy Spirit. (Rom.1:7; Acts5:3; Heb.9:14)
  • We believe in the Holy Baptism with Holy Water. (Acts 22:16)
  • We believe that anyone who dies without the salvation of Jesus Christ will spend eternity in a place called “Hell.” (Psa. 9:17; Psa 73:12-19;Jn.12:48)
  • We believe that those who belong to Christ will inherit eternal life in a literal Kingdom of Heaven (Isaiah 65; Zech. 14).
  • We believe in the next coming of Christ and the resurrection of the dead through him. (Isaiah 65)

“I am born for God only.  Christ is nearer to me than father, or mother, or sister- a near relation, a more affectionate friend; and I rejoice to follow him, and to love him.  Blessed Jesus!  Thou art all I want- a forerunner to me in all I shall go through as a christian, a minister, or a missionary.”  – Henry Martyn
