Doctrinal Truths Held 
by Westfield Alliance Church

1. The Bible, the Old and New Testaments, are inerrant as originally given and were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men. The Bible constitutes the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.

2. There is one living God...revealed by scripture who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

3. Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died upon the cross, the just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood. He arose from the dead according to the scriptures. He is now at the right hand of the Majesty on high as our Great High Priest. He will come again to establish His kingdom of righteousness and peace.

4. The Holy Spirit is a divine person, sent to indwell, guide, and teach and empower the believer, and convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment.

5. Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God, he fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men and women are sinners, separated from the life of God, and can only be saved through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ.

6. Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men, and those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, and receive the gift of eternal life, and become children of God.

7. The church consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, and are born again of the Holy Spirit. The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the Gospel, and observance of the Lord's Supper.

 

John 3:1-8 N I V

JOHN 3:1 Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish ruling council. 2 He came to Jesus at night and said, "Rabbi, we know you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with him."

JOHN 3:3 In reply Jesus declared, "I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again. "

JOHN 3:4 "How can a man be born when he is old?" Nicodemus asked. "Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb to be born!"

JOHN 3:5 Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. 6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. 7 You should not be surprised at my saying, `You must be born again.' 8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit." (NIV)
