Statement of Faith

 

Like your ministry, Intwine desires to give God all the glory and honor in our work and in our lives. Because of this, we want to ensure that we are on common ground with all our clients so that together we can pursue God-exalting work in our partnership. While our site's statement of faith is by no means exhaustive in representing our theological positions, the three points of this statement of faith aim to serve as a check point for our clients (they know where we stand) and for us (we expect our clients to hold the same positions). 

 
 

 

Scripture

We believe that the Bible is God's written revelation to man. We believe the 66 books of the Bible to be inspired (2 Timothy 3:16), inerrant, and infallible. We believe it is a singular, authoritative interpretation of scripture (Hebrews 4:12; 2 Peter 1:20-21) with several applications of the interpretation. 

Jesus christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Triune God. We believe that Jesus Christ possesses all the attributes of divine essence and is therefore coequal and coeternal with the Father (John 1:1-3). We believe that in the incarnation, Christ took on all the characteristics of humanity (without our sin nature) and so while being wholly God is wholly man. (Philippians 2:5-8; Colossians 2:9). 

salvation

We believe that salvation is available by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. We believe that salvation is available through faith in Christ alone and not human merit or effort (Ephesians 2:8-10). We believe salvation to be a supernatural work of the Holy Spirit through the Word of God (John 5:24). We believe that as depraved sinners, we are alienated from God, worthy of eternal condemnation, but as an act of love and mercy, God sent Christ to pay the penalty of our sins. In his death and the shedding of his blood, the sins of those who put their faith in him and repent of their sins are forgiven and the sinner is reconciled to God (Ephesians 1:7; John 3:16; Romans 5:8; Luke 13:3) .  We believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave as evidence of God's acceptance of Christ's payment of sin on our behalf and an assurance of our salvation (Romans 10:9).
