Basic Beliefs of Christian Media, Inc.
We affirm our confidence in God's inerrant Word. We treasure its truths, and we respect its reproofs.
We believe there is only One True God - revealed in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly know as the Trinity).
The Lord Jesus Christ
We claim Jesus Christ as our Lord-the very God who came in human flesh-the object of our worship and the subject of our praise. He was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died on the cross for our sins, and rose on the third day.
The Holy Spirit
We recognize the Holy Spirit as the third member of the Godhead, incessantly at work convicting, convincing, and comforting.
The Depravity of Humanity
We confess that Adam's fall into sin left humanity without the hope of heaven apart from a new birth, made possible by the Savior's death and bodily resurrection.
We believe the offer of salvation is God's love-gift to all. Those who accept it by faith, apart from works, become new creatures in Christ.
The Return of Christ
We anticipate our Lord's promised return, which could occur at any moment.
Resurrection of Humanity
We are convinced that all who have died will be brought back from beyond-believers to everlasting communion with God and unbelievers to everlasting separation from God.
The Body of Christ
We know the Lord is continuing to enlarge His family, the universal body of Christ, over which He rules as Head.
The Family of God
We are grateful to be a part of the local church which exists to proclaim God's truth, to administer the ordinances, to stimulate growth toward maturity, and to bring glory to God.
1. We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between one man and one woman. We believe that any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography are sinful perversions of God’s gift of sex.
We believe that God disapproves of and forbids any attempt to alter one’s gender by surgery or appearance. The corporation reserves the right to only recognize a person to be the gender that the person had at birth. (Gen. 2:24; Gen. 19:5, 13; Gen. 26:8-9; Lev. 18:1-30; Rom. 1:26-29; 1 Cor. 5:1, 6:9; 1 Thess. 4:1-8; Heb. 13:4)
2. We believe that the only Scriptural marriage is the joining of one man and one woman. (Gen. 2:24; Rom. 7:2; 1 Cor. 7:10; Eph 5:22-23)
