Statement of Faith

1. The Scriptures

The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It reveals the principles by which God judges humanity.

2. God

God is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. He is all powerful, all knowing, omnipresent, omnipotent, and sovereign and His perfect knowledge extends to all things, past, present, and future. To Him we owe the highest love, reverence, and obedience.

3. Jesus Christ

Jesus, the eternal son of God, left the glories of heaven to become fully human, able to be tempted to sin, but choosing not to sin in order to die as a perfect sacrifice for the sins of mankind. God raised Him from the dead after three days and He reigns as the supreme authority to everyone and everything.

4. The Holy Spirit

The third member of the Godhead is the Spirit of God. He intercedes for mankind before God; He is our earnest of our inheritance; and He leads people to all truth, among other exalted responsibilities.

5. Man

Man is the special creation of God, made in His own image. God created them male and female as the crowning work of His creation. God’s design for marriage is a covenant between one man and one woman. In the beginning man was innocent of sin and was endowed by his Creator with freedom of choice. Man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race. Only the grace of God can bring man into His holy fellowship and enable man to fulfill the creative purpose of God. The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God created man in His own image.

6. Salvation

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man and is offered freely to all who submit to Jesus Christ and his will.

This statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, the infallible, written Word of God, is the sole basis and final source of all that we believe. For purposes of Family Dynamics Institute d/b/a Marriage Dynamics Institute’s faith, practice, policy, and discipline, our board of directors is the final interpretive authority on the meaning and application of the Statement of Faith for Family Dynamics Institute d/b/a Marriage Dynamics Institute.
