Doctrinal Statement

Joy of Living Bible Studies cooperates with Christians of many denominations, standing firmly within the historic evangelical Christian faith.

We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We are Christ-centered, believing in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His approaching personal return in power and glory.

We believe in salvation by grace through faith.

We recognize the Bible as the inspired, infallible Word of God and the authority for what we believe and how we live.

We desire to manifest the love of God, blending the teaching of personal salvation and the imperative of acting in Christ-like compassion toward the hurting people in our communities and the world.

We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for the salvation of lost and sinful man; and in the present ministry of the indwelling Holy Spirit who enables each believer to live a godly life.

We believe that the true church comprises all who have been justified by God’s grace through faith alone in Christ alone. They are united by the Holy Spirit in the body of Christ, of which He is the Head.

We believe in the resurrection of all people—they that are lost unto damnation, and they that are saved unto eternal life.

Persons of all denominations and creeds are welcome to use our materials for studying God’s Word of Life, the Bible.
