Statement of Faith

We in the Stauros Foundation believe in …

  • The full inspiration of the Holy Scriptures; their authority and sufficiency as not only containing but being in themselves, the infallible and inerrant word of God and the final authority in all things relevant to the faith; the need of the teaching of the Holy Spirit to a true and spiritual understanding of the whole
  • The unity of the Godhead and the divine co-equality of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; the sovereignty of God in creation, providence and redemption
  • The total depravity of human nature in consequence of the fall and the necessity of regeneration for all people
  • The true and proper deity of the Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His real and perfect manhood; the authority of His teaching; the infallibility of all His utterances; His work of atonement for sinful mankind by His substitutionary suffering and death; His bodily resurrection and ascension into heaven; and His present priestly intercession at the right hand of His Father
  • The justification of sinners solely by faith in Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord
  • The deity of the person of the Holy Spirit; the necessity and sufficiency of His work in regeneration, conversion and sanctification
  • The universal church, the body of which Christ is the head, embracing all the redeemed, called by God through the gospel, born of the Spirit, justified by faith
  • The personal return of Jesus Christ in glory
  • The resurrection of the body; the judgement of the world by Jesus Christ, with the eternal blessedness of the righteous in heaven and the eternal punishment of the wicked in hell
