TheologyWeb Campus FAQ

Here you can find answers to questions about how the board works. Use the links or search box below to find your way around.

Trinity

There is one living and true God, Creator of all things, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are co-eternal persons, not simply manifestations or aspects of God. We believe that He is Sovereign over all of His creation; that He alone is God, that He is holy, loving, righteous, and just in nature, attributes, and purpose.

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, is eternal and shares the nature of God with the Father and Holy Spirit. We believe He is eternally one with the Father, eternally God, and that He is eternally begotten of the Father from eternity. He serves as our mediator with the Father. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, fully taking on a human nature while retaining fully His divine nature. He lived a sinless life and through His death, atoned for our sins. He was bodily resurrected and ascended into Heaven. He will return bodily, personally, and visibly.

Resurrection and Future Judgment

We believe in the future bodily resurrection of all persons, the just and the unjust, and the Final Judgment. We believe that every person shall appear before the throne of God to be judged according to his or her deeds in this life. We believe that after the judgment, everlasting life is assured to all who believe in, and obediently follow, Jesus Christ and that the unbeliever shall be incapable of redemption once judged. According to His promise, we look into the future for a new heaven and a new earth.

Scriptures

The Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, comprises the one and only Holy Scriptures. These Holy Scriptures are the Word of God and are authoritative sources for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness. They reveal the will of God concerning us in things necessary to our salvation.

Church

We believe in the Church universal, which is the living spiritual Body of Christ, of which all believers are members.

Administrator Remark

It is well understood that all participants on this forum will not or do not affirm the above Statement of Faith in part or whole. This is by no means a regulation for participation at TheologyWeb or in any way serves as a censor, through interaction we seek to learn and educate. The Statement of Faith is not intended to indicative a comprehensive statement of the doctrinal positions of any staff member, nor is it intended to be comprehensive about what is required to have sound doctrine. It is a minimum standard that serves to identify things which we believe are common denominators in Christianity and which we use to determine participation in Christian-only areas and profile designations of Christian. It is not intended to be an endorsement of the orthodoxy of any member.

Salvation of Man

We believe all men have sinned and fallen short of God's glory and that all men are in need of salvation. We believe sinners cannot be saved by any work of their own. The Good News of Christ's death, burial, and resurrection is the only power that can change sinners and give them eternal life. We believe that Christís sacrifice was sufficient to purchase our salvation when we believe in Him with a real and genuine faith
