• That the Bible is the Holy, spirit-breathed, inherent, plenary inspired word of God. That it is without error and that it is “profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (II Timothy 3:16)
  • That Jesus was God incarnate, God in the flesh, the very Son of God, and that He was born of the virgin Mary through a supernatural act of God through the Holy Spirit.  (Luke 1:26-25)
  • That Jesus, The Christ lived a sinless life. (John 8:46; 14:30)
  • That Jesus Christ died a vicarious, substitutionary death as the ultimate and final sinless and willing blood sacrifice, that He was made to become sin for us so that we could be made the righteousness of God in Him.
    (II Corinthians 5:21)
  • That he rose bodily from the dead and by so doing proved himself to be the Son of God. (Romans 1:4)
  • That after His resurrection, He showed Himself to be alive by many indisputable proofs to many witnesses. (Acts 1:3)
  • That after having shown Himself alive He ascended into the heavens. (Acts 1:9)
  • That He will visibly, physically return again. (Acts 1:11)
  • That as a result of the fall of man as described in Genesis chapter three, all men are born sinners, (Romans 3:10, 23) and can only be reconciled to Holy God by believing on the Lord Jesus Christ. (John 1:12; Acts 16:31; Romans 10:9-13); that those who die without Christ suffer eternal separation from God in a literal hell with no chance for reconciliation with God after death, while those who die having been “born again” by believing in Jesus Christ are secure in Christ and eternity. We believe the Bible teaches a literal hell to shunned and a literal heaven to be gained.
  • That the believer is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ. (John 3:16; Romans 8:35-39; 2 Cor 1:22; Eph 1:13; Eph 4:30)
  • That the Holy Spirit is the revelator of truth and enables believers to do the work of the ministry to which they have been called of God. (John 14:16-18; 16:7; 13; Galatians 2:20)
  • We of Challenge Ministries International recognize that there are traditional and denominational preferences. We likewise recognize that each believer, and each corporate body can and should be a unique expression of the Lord Jesus Christ. We ourselves have “preferences” in some areas, such as baptism by immersion, but, we do not make these a “test of fellowship.”
  • The test of Christian fellowship is having a personal, experiential relationship with Jesus Christ! As a “Non-Denominational Ministry,” we, like Paul the Apostle, try to be sensitive to the differences and distinctions of cultural, traditional and denominational preferences which are not essential to salvation so that we can effectively minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the whole counsel of God across cultural, and denominational lines in order to win the lost, disciple the saved and equip the church to do the work of the ministry. (Matthew 28:19-20; I Corinthians 9:19-22; Ephesians 4:11-16)
