Our Statement of Beliefs
Biblical Unitarianism is not to be confused with Unitarian Universalism.
Biblical Unitarians believe in God, Jesus Christ, and the gift of holy spirit.
We believe that the Scriptures are “God-breathed,” perfect in their original writing, without flaw or contradiction, and provide the only sure and steadfast basis for faith. Understanding the Scripture is attainable by applying logic and sound principles of biblical interpretation, in conjunction with the spirit of God in us.
We believe that the Heavenly Father alone is God (John 17:3).
We believe that God (the Father) is Supreme – greater than all others, the Creator of the heavens and earth.
We believe that Jesus is the only begotten Son of “God” (the Father) (John 3:16).
We believe that Jesus is the Messiah prophesied about in the Old Testament Scriptures (Gen. 3:15).
We believe that Jesus was born in Bethlehem to Mary, a virgin, who was betrothed to Joseph (Matt. 2:1; Luke 1:26-33).
We believe that Jesus was directly descended from David through Mary according to the flesh, as was promised to David (Rom. 1:2-4).
We believe that God was literally Jesus’ father, in that God created Jesus’ life in Mary (Luke 1:35).
We believe that Jesus is “the Last Adam,” and he lived without sin throughout His life (1 Cor. 15:45; Heb. 4:15).
We believe that in his earthly ministry Jesus acted on behalf of his father whom he represented; and he taught, healed, raised the dead, and forgave sins. (Acts 2:22, John 3:34, Heb. 1:3).
We believe that on the third day after he died, God honored His promise and raised Jesus from the dead and gave him a new body that was and remains incorruptible (Acts 10:39-41; 13:29-31).
We believe that God highly exalted Jesus, gave him the “seat” at his right hand (made him His right-hand man), made him “Lord,” and gave him all authority in heaven and on earth (Phil. 2:9-11; Acts 2:36; Matt. 28:18).
We believe that Jesus was designated by God to be the mediator between God and man (1 Tim. 2:5).
We believe that God is “holy” and that He is “spirit,” and that He is often referred to as the “Holy Spirit” in Scripture. God is the Giver, and the gift He gives via the new birth is “holy spirit,” His divine nature (Isa. 6:3; John 4:24; Acts 2:38).
