Christian Heritage Intl.Group, Inc. Statement of Faith A. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only authoritative Word of God. B. We believe that there is one God eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (The Trinity). And yet all three are one! (The Unity of the Godhead) We also believe that Lucifer in an effort to produce disunity in the body of Christ (His church): promotes schisms i.e. (Trinitarians Vs Unitarians) in an effort to divide and conquer the church. C. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory. D. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man that Redemption through the blood of Jesus Christ is necessary and that (regeneration, conformation, conversion, and transformation) by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary for spiritual maturity. E. We believe that according to Acts 2:38, that Water Baptism in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ is necessary for the remission of sin and vital for progress towards Christian maturity. F. We believe that Baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4 is given to believers who ask for it. G. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling, the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. H. We believe in the sanctifying of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling, the Christian is enabled to live a holy life. I. We believe that according to (Matt 13/Rev. 22;12) that there are different degrees of reward and spiritual growth (some 30-fold, some 60-fold, and some 100 fold+) and Christ will pay each person according to their works. J. We believe that there is: One Body â€“ One Lord â€“ One Faith! K. In addition to this Statement of Faith, the Board of Trustees - (CHIG) have by resolution adopted the complete Articles of Faith for this Group.
