Statement of Faith
HIAWATHA BIBLE CHAPEL'S STATEMENT OF FAITH IS AS FOLLOWING:
We Believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that he came to earth in the form of a man. Was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life. Died on the cross for the sins of the world. Was buried and rose on the third day, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father in heaven. Will be coming back to earth soon to set up His kingdom. He came the first time as a lamb, the second time He will come as a lion.
We also believe that once you have excepted Christ and believe in His sacrifice for your sins, you are born again not by the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. As many as receive Him (Jesus) to them He gave power to become the children of God, even to them that believe on his name.
The inspiration of the Bible in all parts and without error in its origin; The one God, eternally existent Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Who created all things by a direct immediate act; The pre-existence, incarnation, virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, ascension to Heaven, and the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ; The fall of man, the need of regeneration by the operation of the Holy Spirit on the basis of grace alone, and the resurrection of all: to life or damnation; The spiritual relationship of all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, living a life of righteous works, separated from the world, witnessing of His saving grace through the ministry of the Holy Spirit.
The Hiawatha Bible Chapel was established back in the seventies, and is an assembly type meeting. This means we are a body type ministry which means we do not have a one man leader. We are governed by a group of elders or older men who know the Lord Jesus Christ and have trusted Him for their salvation. The Head of our assembly is the Lord Jesus Christ, and we use His Word (The Bible) for our final authority.
If you are new to the area, or just passing through, and are a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ we invite you to come and worship our Lord with us on Sunday mornings. We have weekly Bible studies, youth Group and there is an Adventure Club for the younger children on Wednesday after school. For times and places for Bible studies and youth group please call the phone numbers listed on our Contact Us page.
