Statement of Faith
INSIGHT, as a program of the U.S. Center for World Mission, is in agreement with the statements of faith of Missio Nexus (a merger of the former Cross Global Link (EFMA) and The Mission Exchange (IFMA). Both the U.S. Center for World Mission and INSIGHT program are inter-denominational, drawing staff/faculty from varied Christian traditions who agree to affirm these statements of faith.
As we look to the future, we envision missional leaders accelerating the fulfillment of the Great Commission in servant partnership with the global church.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Adam, created in the image of God, was tempted by Satan, the god of this world and fell. Because of Adam’s sin, all men have guilt imputed, are totally depraved.
We believe that salvation consists of the remission of sins, the imputation of Christ’s righteousness and the gift of eternal life, received by faith alone, apart from works.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
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 in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe that the church, the body of Christ, consists only of those who are born again, who are baptized by the Holy Spirit into Christ, for whom He now makes intercession in heaven and for whom He will come again.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that Christ commanded the church to go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature, baptizing and teaching those who believe and that the natural outcome of such activity leads to the establishment of local congregations.
