OUR BELIEFS

What We Believe

Our beliefs at Christian Grandfather Magazine (CGM) are designed to outline our core beliefs. We included support scripture references under each statement. This encourages the essential fundamental truths that we believe Christians must not deny. While CGM allows for a diversity of opinions, our Doctrinal position should appeal to those familiar with the true Word of God.

We Believe The Following:

1. God

There is only one God, who has existed eternally in three persons: The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God, who rules the universe.

Genesis 1:1Genesis 1:26-27Genesis 3:22Psalm 90:2Matthew 28:191 Peter 1:22 Corinthians 13:14

2. Jesus

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. He was born of a virgin as prophesied and lived a sinless human life. Jesus offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven and will return again to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation and eternal life in heaven.

Matthew 1:22-23, Isaiah 9:6John 1:1-5John 14:10-30Hebrews 4:14-151 Corinthians 15:3-4Romans 1:3-4Acts 1:9-111 Timothy 6:14-15Titus 2:13, John 10:1, 7, 9. 

3. The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every believer from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily.

2 Corinthians 3:17, John 16:7-13John 14:16-17Acts 1:81 Corinthians 2:121 Corinthians 3:16Ephesians 1:13Galatians 5:25Ephesians 5:18

4. The Bible

The Bible is God’s Word to all men. Human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit wrote it. It is the ultimate source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. The Bible is the infallible and inerrant Word of God.

2 Timothy 3:16-172 Peter 1:20-212 Timothy 1:13Psalm 119:105Psalm 119:160Psalm 12:6Proverbs 30:5

5. Salvation

Salvation is God’s gift to you. It is given by grace alone, through faith alone in the blood of atonement of Christ, with repentance of sins. It is only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness that you can be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment you receive Jesus Christ into your life by faith. There will be a resurrection of both the saved and unsaved; the saved to eternal life and the lost to eternal damnation.

Romans 6:23Ephesians 2:8-9John 14:6John 1:12Titus 3:5Galatians 3:26Romans 5:1

6. Humanity

Humanity is made in the image of God. Although God designed us to have fellowship with Him, we became alienated from God through disobedience. As a result, all human beings are born with a sinful nature and choose to sin against God. We are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through our own works and efforts.

Genesis 1:27Psalm 8:3-6Isaiah 53:6Romans 3:23Colossians 1:21Isaiah 59:1-2.

We stand against abortion and will stand up for the unborn.

Exodus 20:13, 21:22-25, Leviticus 24:17, Proverbs 6:16-19, 24:11-12

7.  Eternity

You were created to exist forever. We believe that forever is spent in one of two places: eternally separated from God because of sin or in union with God because of His forgiveness and salvation. When you die, you will either spend eternity in heaven or hell. Eternal separation from God happens in hell. Eternal union with God occurs in heaven.

John 3:161 John 2:25John 5:11-13Romans 6:23Revelation 20:15

8.  We believe that God created all people equally for His purpose, and His Glory. God expects us to live together in peace that only He provides. Without Him there will be no peace in our nation or the world

Genesis 1:27, Galatians 3:26-29, Romans 2: 11, John 13:16, Mark 12:31
