Statement of Faith

Below is the DAC Statement of faith and you may select this link for the
C&MA Statement of Faith: Pastor's Study Guide with Commentary.

There is one God,(1) who is infinitely perfect,(2) existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.(3)   ([1] Deuteronomy 6:4, [2] Matthew 5:48, [3] Matthew 28:19)

Jesus Christ is the true God and the true man.(4) He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.(5) He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust,(6) as a substitutionary sacrifice,(7) and all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.(8) He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures.(9) He is now at the right hand of Majesty on high as our great High Priest.(10) He will come again to establish His kingdom, righteousness and peace.(11)  ([4] Philippians 2:6-11, [5] Luke 1:34–38, [6] I Peter 3:18, [7] Hebrews 2:9, [8] Romans 5:9, [9] Acts 2:23–24, [10] Hebrews 8:1, [11] Matthew 26:64)

The Holy Spirit is a divine person,(12) sent to dwell, guide, teach, empower the believer,(13) and convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment.(14)  ([12] John 14:15–18, [13] John 16:13, Acts 1:8, [14] John 16:7–11)

  1. The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.(15) ([15] 2 Peter 1:20–21, 2 Timothy 3:15–16)
  2. Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God:(16) he fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature,(17) are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ.(18) The portion of the unrepentant and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment;(19) and that of the believer, in everlasting joy and bliss.(20)  ([16] Genesis 1:27, [17] Romans 3:23, [18] 1 Corinthians15:20–23, [19] Revelation 21:8, [20] Revelation 21:1–4)
  3. Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; and those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become the children of God.(21)  ([21] Titus 3:4–7)
  4. It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit and be sanctified wholly,(22) being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service.(23) This is both a crisis and a progressive experience wrought in the life of the believer subsequent to conversion.24  ([22] 1 Thessalonians 5:23, [23] Acts 1:8, [24] Romans 6:1–14)
  5. Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal body.(25) Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil are taught in the Scriptures and are privileges for the Church in this present age.(26) ([25] Matthew 8:16–17, [26] James 5:13–16) 
  6. The Church consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, and are born again of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Head of the Body, the Church, (27) which has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the gospel to all nations.(28) The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel, and observance of the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord's Supper.(29)  ([27] Ephesians 1:22–23, [28] Matthew 28:19–20, [29] Acts 2:41–47)
  7. There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life;(30) for the latter, a resurrection unto judgment.(31)  ([30] 1 Corinthians 15:20–23, [31] John 5:28–29)
  8. The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent(32) and will be personal, visible, and premillennial.(33) This is the believer's blessed hope and is a vital truth which is an incentive to holy living and faithful service.(34)  ([32] Hebrews 10:37, [33] Luke 21:27, [34] Titus 2:11–14)
  • His Word

    The Bible, both the Old and New Testaments.
  • His Compassion

    God loves to meet the needs of people, and He desires that we reach our community through need-oriented evangelism.
  • His People

    God desire a relationship with those who belong to Him, and He desires His people to have a relationship with one another.
  • His Character

    Jesus came “not to be served, but to serve,” and to give His life a ransom for many. God wants us to be servants, not masters.
  • His Name

    Above all else, God is a holy God. He calls us to revere His name by living counterculture lives.
  • His Goals

    The great goal of the gospel is that all people groups everywhere might hear the good news that Jesus died and lives again that all men might be saved.
  • His Relationship

    We cannot have a meaningful relationship with God apart from prayer. Al that we do must be fueled by prayer.
