CJM STATEMENT ON CREATIONISM

Christ Jesus Ministries’ Statement of Creationist Beliefs:

1. The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God. The authority of the Bible is supreme. (Psalm 119:105; John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16)

 

2. The Godhead, or Trinity, is triune: one God, three eternal Persons, i.e. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Deut. 4:35; John 1:1-3; Acts 5:3)


3. God created over a period of six, literal, 24-hour, earth-rotation, days and the days of Genesis do not correspond to evolutionary eons. (Genesis 1-2; Exodus 20:8-11, Colossians 1:16)


4. Death is a consequence of the fall of man, did not occur before the fall, and was not used by God to create man or life on earth. (Genesis 2:17; Romans 5:12-19; 1 Corinthians 15:21-22)


5. The Genesis Flood, or Noachian Flood, was a global, and geologically catastrophic, event and produced a significant portion of the fossil record. (Genesis 6-9; Matthew 24:37-39; Hebrews 11:7)


6. The Bible provides the presuppositions necessary for the rise and progress of science. (Genesis 8:22; Jeremiah 33:25; 1 Corinthians 14:33)


7. Christ Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by Him. Salvation is by the grace of Jesus and there is no other name under heaven that can grant the gift of salvation and eternal life.  (John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Ephesians 2:8-10)
