Doctrinal Statement of Grace Institute


1. The Holy Scripture

a. We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is truth without error. 2Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet.1:21; Prov. 30:5
b. We believe that the Bible is the only book needed to have the perfect relationship with God. 2Tim. 3:17
c. We believe that the Holy Bible describes the only true God. He is infinite and an intelligent Spirit. John 4:24
d. We believe that the Bible reveals the principles by which God will judge the world and us. Psalm 75:7; Rom. 14:10; Rev. 20:11-13


2. The Holy Trinity

a. The scriptures teach that God exists in three eternally distinct persons Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and these three are one in essence, equal in power and glory. 1 John 5:7; 2Cor. 13:14

b. The Father is the first person of the Trinity. He is eternal, omnipotent (all powerful), omnipresent (everywhere), omniscient (all knowing), immutable (non-changing), holy, merciful, just and He is love. Gen. 17:1; Ex 20:2-3; Ps. 90:2; 99:9; 145:7; 147:5; John 4:24

c. The Son is the second person of the Trinity. He has always existed, virgin-born, sinless life, died a substitutionary death, was buried and resurrected bodily, ascended into heaven, is now at the right hand of the Father interceding for the believers. Col. 1:17; Is. 7:14; Matt. 1:18-25; Heb. 4:15; John 10:15, 17-18; 13:37-38; Mark 16:1-4; Luke 24:1-45; John 20:1-29; 1Cor. 15:4, 12-23; Mark 16:19; Luke 24: 51; Acts 1:9-11; Heb. 7:25

d. The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. He has existed eternally with the Father and the Son; He is the agent in the new birth; He reproves the world of sin, of judgment and righteousness; He indwells the believers; He seals the believer, as well as guides, teaches, witnesses, and baptizes all believers into the body of Christ. Matt. 28:19; Heb. 9:14; Gen. 6:3; John 3:3-6; 6:44; John 16:8; 1Cor. 3:16; 6:19; Eph. 4:30; John 16:13; John 14:26; Heb. 10:15; 1Cor. 12:12-14


3. Grace and the New Creation

We believe that in order to be saved, sinners must be born again; that the new birth is a new creation in Christ Jesus; that it is instantaneous and not a process; that in the new birth the one dead in trespasses and in sins is made a partaker of the divine nature and receives eternal life, the free gift of God; that the new creation is brought about in a manner above our comprehension, not by culture, not by character, nor by the will of man, but wholly and solely by the power of the Holy Spirit in connection with divine truth, so as to secure our voluntary obedience to the gospel; that its proper evidence appears in the holy fruits of repentance and faith and newness of life. Eph. 2:1, 8: Rom. 6:23; John 3:3, 6; 1 John 5:1; Luke 5:27; Acts 2:41; 16:30-33; 2Cor. 5:17


4. Repentance and Faith

We believe that repentance and faith are solemn obligations, and also inseparable graces, wrought in our souls by the quickening Spirit of God; thereby, being deeply convicted of our guilt, danger and helplessness, and of the way of salvation by Christ, we turn to God with unfeigned contrition, confession and supplication for mercy; at the same time heartily receiving the Lord Jesus Christ and openly confessing Him as our only and all-sufficient Savior. Acts 2:37-38; 20:21; Mark 1:15; Luke 12:8; 18:13; Ps. 51:1-7; Rom. 10:13; 1Thes. 1:9; Isaiah 55:6-7


5. Justification

We believe that the great gospel blessing, which Christ secured to such as believe in Him is justification; that justification includes the pardon of sin and the promise of eternal life in principles of righteousness; that it is bestowed not in consideration of any works of righteousness which we have done but solely through faith in the Redeemer’s blood, by virtue of which faith in His perfect righteousness is freely imputed to us of God; that justification brings us into a state of most blessed peace and favor with God as secures every other blessing needful for time and eternity. Acts 13:39; Rom. 4:5; 5:1-2, 9; Rom. 4:25


6. Sanctification

We believe that sanctification is the process by which, according to the will of God, we are made partakers of His holiness; that it is a progressive work; that it is begun in regeneration; and that it is carried on in the hearts of believers by the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, the Sealer and the Comforter, in the continual use of the appointed means, especially by the Word of God, self-examination, self-denial, watchfulness and prayer. 1Thes. 4:3-5; Rom. 8:5; 15:16; Phil. 2:12-13; John 17:17
