Crazy8 Ministries Beliefs
THE SCRIPTURE: The sole basis of our beliefs is the Bible. We believe it is the inspired Word of God, the infallible, all sufficient rule for faith and practice. It is the supreme and final authority.
2 Tim. 3:15-16; 2 Pet. 1:21
GOD: There is but one God, infinite in power, wisdom, justice, goodness and love, the Creator of the universe, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – each of whom possesses all the attributes of Deity and the characteristics of personality.
Gen. 1:1; Deut. 6:4; Mar. 12:29; Mat. 28:19
JESUS CHRIST: We believe in the Virgin Birth, Sinless Life, Miraculous Ministry, Substitutionary Atoning Death, Bodily Resurrection, Triumphant Ascension and Abiding Intercession of the Lord Jesus Christ and in His personal, visible, bodily return in power and glory as the blessed hope of all believers.

MAN: We believe that God created man in His own image, but that man fell by voluntary transgression.
Gen. 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Rom. 5:12-21
SALVATION: We believe in salvation by grace through faith in Christ, who, according to the Scriptures, died for our sins, was buried and was raised from the dead on the third day, and that through His Blood we have Redemption. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.
Titus 2:11, 3:5-7; Rom. 10:8-15; 1 Cor. 15:3-4; John 14:6; Eph. 2:8-22
THE HOLY SPIRIT: The Holy Spirit has come into the world to reveal and glorify Christ, to convict men and women of their sins, and to impart new life to all who place their faith in Christ. He indwells believers from the moment of spiritual birth, seals them until the day of redemption, allots spiritual gifts to them for ministry, and empowers them to live a life pleasing to God.
