Statement of Faith

At Scranton Road Ministries C.D.C., we believe: 

  1. The Bible is the inspired, infallible, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:12-13; 2 Peter 1:21).
  2. There is one God, eternally existent in 3 Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4, 2 Corinthians 13:14, Matthew 28:19).
  3. In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return to power and glory (Matthew 1:18, 23; John 1:1, 5:18; Acts 2:31-33; 1 Corinthians 15:1-6; 2 Corinthians 5:21; I John 2:1-2).
  4. For the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential (John 1:12, 3:5-7; Ephesians 2:8-9).
  5. In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.  (John 14:16-17, 16:7-11; I Corinthians 6:19, 12:4-11, Ephesians 4:30; Hebrews 2:4)
  6. In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost.  Those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.(Luke 23:43; II Thessalonians 1:7-9; Revelation 20:11-15)
  7. In the spiritual unity of all believers in Jesus Christ. John 17:20-23; Acts 2:42-47; I Corinthians 1:1-2; Ephesians 4:11-13)
