Frontier Camp Doctrinal Statement

Revised for Clarity (3/5/2022)

Scripture: We believe that all Scripture – the Old and New Testament – were inspired by God in such a way that the original human authors accurately wrote down the very words intended by God. Therefore, we accept Scripture as the supreme and final authority in faith and life, just as much today as when they were first written. (Numbers 23:19; John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21)

Jesus Christ: We believe that Jesus Christ is the One and only Son of God, Who was in the beginning with God, and Who was, is, and always will be God. Though He existed from eternity past, He was miraculously born of a virgin in the likeness of men. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, fully God and fully man. We believe that He lived a sinless life, was crucified, buried, and raised on the third day. We believe that He ascended to the Father, and now performs His High Priestly ministry as the Advocate for all who place their trust in Him. (Luke 1:26-38; John 1:1-3; 10:30; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:15- 20)

Trinity: We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 3:16-17; 28:19)

Human Beings: We believe that man and woman were created in the image of God. We believe that our first parents sinned, and thereby incurred, not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God. We believe that all human beings are born under the condition of that separation, and therefore, when given moral responsibility, will become sinners in thought, word, and deed. The one and only exception being Jesus Christ Himself Who was born as we are, yet without sin. (Genesis 1:26-28; 3:1-24; Matthew 19:4-5; Romans 5:12-14; Hebrews 4:15)

Salvation: We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for all sins as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice – not for our sins only, but for the sins of the whole world – and that He physically rose from the dead on the third day to be our risen Savior. We believe that anyone who places his/her trust and confidence in Christ alone is justified before God, fully forgiven, and born again as a child of God by His grace alone, through faith alone. Every born-again child of God is immediately sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, Who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, resulting in a salvation that is permanent, eternal, and secure. (John 3:16; Romans 5:6-8; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Ephesians 1:3-14; 1 John 2:1-2)

Spiritual Baptism: We believe that a person upon receiving salvation in Christ is immediately indwelt by the Holy Spirit, baptized by the Holy Spirit into Christ, and is blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places. At that moment, this newborn disciple of Christ begins his/her lifelong journey of becoming conformed to the image of Christ, as the Holy Spirit leads, guides, teaches, and brings understanding in his/her daily walk. We believe that the Holy Spirit gives each disciple of Christ at least one spiritual gift for the purpose of building up the Body of Christ – the Church. It is our understanding that the sign gifts (e.g. speaking in tongues and miracles) had a unique apostolic purpose that is no longer necessary, now that the Scriptures are complete. However, we also acknowledge God’s freedom and sovereignty to act through His children as He deems appropriate. (Romans 6:3-4; 8:29-30; 12:3-8; 1 Corinthians 12-14; Ephesians 1:3)

Resurrection: We believe that every human being who has ever lived will one day be physically resurrected to face God and be judged according to God’s standard of righteousness. Those whose life is judged perfect because of their acceptance of Jesus’ sacrifice for their sins, will be rewarded with eternal life in the presence of their Heavenly Father. Those whose life is judged imperfect because they rejected the salvation offered to them will face an eternal hell. (1 Corinthians 15:12-58; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Revelation 20:11-15)

The End of Time: We believe that in the progress of God’s revelation to humanity, promises were made by God Himself that must be kept before time comes to an end. The physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel were promised a Kingdom, in a very specific geographic location. The fulfillment of this promise is described by the Apostle John as a 1,000-year reign of Christ on the earth (commonly called the Millennium). In preparation for this fulfillment, the Church of Jesus Christ will be raptured, and waves of judgment will come over the earth for a period of 7 years. At the end of this time of tribulation, the remaining remnant of the nation of Israel will welcome their King, Jesus Christ Himself, Who will set up His Kingdom in Jerusalem. At the end of this 1,000 years, the Kingdom will be tested and purified by the release of Satan upon the earth. This will be followed by the final judgment of all the rebellious, the earth will be destroyed and replaced by a new heaven and a new earth which will be the final, everlasting home of the redeemed. (Daniel 9:24-27; Zechariah 14:1-8; Matthew 24:1-31; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 19-21)

Our Standard for Living: We believe that every disciple of Christ should pursue righteousness and holiness in our everyday lives in keeping with our goal of being conformed to the image of Christ. We believe, therefore, that all sexual activity outside of the marriage relationship between a husband and wife is immoral and clearly a sin against God. Therefore, homosexuality, adultery, and fornication are strictly prohibited. We also believe that Scripture clearly condemns murder of any human being, including those not yet born. Any form of idolatry is condemned including the worship of demons, ancestors, or any deity other than the God of the Bible. This prohibition also includes any witchcraft or any fellowship with the occult. Also, any activity specified by Scripture as immoral, such as stealing, lying, drunkenness, drug abuse, or any divisive behavior is condemned as inconsistent with a disciple’s pursuit of righteousness. (Ephesians 5)
