What We Believe
This statement of our faith shall keep each of us grounded in Biblical truth so that we can lead others to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and correctly disciple them.
The following declarations are statements of fundamental doctrines with which all who serve Wheeler Mission Ministries, Inc. should be in agreement:
We believe in the Scripture of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired by God, and inerrant in the original writings, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.
Ps. 1; John 1:1, 14; Rom. 2:11-22; 1 Thess. 2:13; II Tim. 3:16-17; II Peter 2:20-21; 1 John 2:1-5
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Gen. 1:1-2, 26; Matt. 16:16-17; Matt. 28:18-19; John 1:1, 14; Acts 5:3-4; I Cor. 2:9-11; Phil. 2:5-11; Heb. 1:1-14
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man.
Is. 7:14; Matt. 1:18-20; John 3:17; Gal. 4:4; Phil. 2:5-11; I Tim. 2:5-6
We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned, and thereby incurred, not only physical death, but also that spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and in the case of those who reach moral responsibility become sinners in thought, word and deed.
Gen. 1: 26-27; Gen. 3:1-19; Ps. 51:5; Is. 43:7; Is. 64:6; Rom. 3:23; Rom. 5:12; I Thess. 5:23; Heb. 4:12
We believe that the Lord Jesus died for our sins according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood.
Rom. 5:8; Rom. 8:12-17; Phil. 2:9-11; Heb. 9:13-28; I John 2:2
We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and in His present life there for us, as a High Priest and Advocate.
John 1:29-36, 10:11-15; John 3:16-17; Rom. 3:25, 10:3; Rom. 5:10-11; Rom. 8:32-35; II Cor. 5:21; Phil. 2:5-11; Heb. 2:17
We believe in “that blessed hope,” the personal and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Dan. 2:44; Matt. 24:30-31; Matt. 24:36-44; John 5:28-30; Acts 1:9; I Cor. 15:50-57; I Thess. 4:13-17
We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.
John 3:1-16; Rom. 8:15; II Cor. 5:17; Eph. 1:3-14
We believe that Jesus Christ will personally and visibly return in glory to raise the dead and bring salvation and judgment to completion. God will fully manifest His kingdom when He establishes a new heaven and new earth, in which He will be glorified forever and exclude all evil, suffering and death.
Ps. 1:5; Matt 12:36; Rom. 4:10; Rom. 6:5; 1 Cor. 4:5, 3:13-14; II Cor. 5:10; I Thess. 4:13-17; I Tim. 3:6; Heb. 9:27; Jude 1:6; Rev. 20:5-6
