A creed is a statement of belief, in particular a statement of faith that describes the beliefs shared by a religious community. Religious creeds are not intended to be comprehensive, but to be a summary of core beliefs.
Here is what we believe at The Silver City Gospel Mission.
1. The Holy Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God
(2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20)
Has our copy of the Bible been changed?
Were Bible stories and characters based on stolen pagan myths?
Fulfilled Prophecies of the Bible
The Trilema (Jesus is either God, a liar or a lunatic)
Reading the Bible changes people
Stories of people who have been changed
Learn The Bible In 24 Hours (Bible codes and facts)
If the Bible is true, then . . .
2. There is a real heaven and a real hell we will all go to when we die
(2 Peter 2:4, John 15:6, Luke 12:5, Matthew 10:28, Matthew 13:41-43, (Matthew 13:49-50, Luke 13:3, Revelation 21:8)
3. We are all born into this world with sin and the ONLY way we can be saved and go to heaven and not hell when we die is to believe in Jesus Christ
(Acts 4:12, 1 Timothy 2:5, Ephesians 4:4, John 14:6, John 10:9, John 11:25, John 8:12, John 6:35, John 6:51, John 3:15-16)
Why are we born into the world with sin?
4. You can’t go to heaven by doing good deeds. Being saved from going to hell is a free gift from God
(Ephesians 2:8, Galatians 2:16, Romans 3:20,23, 2 Timothy 1:9, Romans 11:6, Romans 5:1-2, Titus 2:11, Acts 15:11, Ephesians 2:4-7, Titus 3:7, Romans 3:23-24, John 1:17, 2 Thessalonians 2:16, Ephesians 1:7-8, Romans 5:15, Ephesians 1:6, Romans 5:20, Galatians 2:21)
“… if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made to salvation.”
5. Jesus Christ is the son of God
(John 3:15-18, Luke 1:31, 1 John 4:14, 1 John 5:11-12, Hebrews 1:1-4, John 20:30-31)
6. Jesus Christ became fully man and came down to our earth in the flesh so He could then go to the cross to die for all of our sins
(1 John 4:1-4)
7. Jesus Christ was crucified and died and then rose from the dead on the third day
(Luke 24:46-47, 1 Corinthians 15:20, Acts 1:1-3, 1 Corinthians 15:12-18)
8. Jesus went back up into heaven after he rose from the grave
(Luke 24:50-51, Acts 1:9-10, John 20:17, John 3:13, John 6:62)
9. God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit are all God (the trinity)
(1 John 5:7, 1 Corinthians 8:6, Titus 2:13, John 10:30, 2 Corinthians 3:17, Hebrews 9:14 )
10. We are baptized with the Holy Spirit at the moment we are saved
(Ephesians 4:4-5, Acts 2:38, Matthew 3:11, Mark 1:8, 1 Corinthians 3:16, 1 Corinthians 3:17, Romans 8:9, Romans 8:11, Ephesians 4:30, 2 Corinthians 1:21, Ephesians 1:13, 2 Corinthians 5:5 )
11. We are born again by the Holy Spirit when we are saved
(Titus 3:4-7, John 3:3,5, Ephesians 2:1, 2 Corinthians 5:17 )
12. Jesus Christ will come back to our earth again
(Zechariah 8:3, Zechariah 2:10-12, Ezekiel 43:5-7, Revelation 21:3-5, Revelation 21:10-21)
