What We Believe

Equip Education does not teach a specific denominational set of beliefs. The following is the foundation of beliefs on which Equip Education is based. They are also the key elements of Christianity that will be unapologetically taught in various ways through all levels of training at Equip Education. These statements are the primary doctrine in Christianity and therefore at Equip Education. Secondary doctrines and issues will not be presented as primary doctrine. When secondary doctrine or issues arise, they will be referred back to the family and local churches for final authority.

The Bible
We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God's truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice. (Isa. 40:8, II Tim. 3:16-17; Heb. 4:12; II Pet. 1:20,21)

The Trinity
We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

The Father
We believe that God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of human history according to the purposes of His grace. He is the Father of all men in the Creator-creature sense, and the spiritual Father of all who believe in Christ. He is the author of salvation, the One who sent His Son. (Acts 17:29; Gal. 3:26; Heb. 12:9; I Pet. 1:3)

The Person and Work of Jesus Christ
We believe Jesus Christ is God incarnate, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, completely God and completely man. We believe in His pre-existence, His sinless life, His substitutionary atonement, His bodily resurrection from the grave, His ascension into Heaven, and His bodily return from Heaven. (Jn. 1:1,14,18; Lk. 1:35; Rom 3:24-26; 4:25; 1 Pet. 1:3-5; Eph. 4:11-16; I Thess. 4:13-18; Heb. 1:3; 7:23-25; 1 Jn. 2:1-2)

The Holy Spirit
We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this age to convict men, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct, assure, pray for and empower the believer for godly living and service. (Jn.14:26; 16:6-15; Acts 1:5; 2:1-4; 11:1-18; Rom. 8:14-16, 26-27; 1 Cor. 6:19; 12:7-11, 13; Eph. 1:13-14; 5:18; 2 Thess. 2:1-10; Titus 3:5).

Salvation
We believe that all humanity is in a fallen state and in need of redemption. Man can only be saved by God's grace, through the faith He gives to man to believe in the completed work of His Son Jesus Christ. Salvation cannot be earned and is not deserved, but is received by those who believe. (Rom. 3:23, 5:12, 10:9; Eph. 2:8-9).

The Church
We believe in the Church, both universally and locally, as the spiritual body of which Christ is the Head. The church exercises Christ's authority until His return. We also believe that the church is entrusted with the sacraments of baptism and the Lord's supper. (Mt. 16:18; cf. Acts 1:5; 11:15; and 1 Cor. 12:13; Eph. 1:22-23; 4:11-16; 5:22-23; Col. 1:18).

The Great Commission
We believe that those whom God has saved are sent into the world by Christ as He was by the Father. Those sent are ambassadors, commissioned to go make disciples and make Christ known to the whole world. (Mt. 28:18-20; Jn. 15:8; 17:18; 20:21; Acts 1; Rom. 10:14-15; 2 Cor. 5:18-20; Col. 4:2-6; 2 Tim. 2:14-26).
