Statement of Faith

 

"We believe that the Bible is the inspired and authoritative Word of God, infallible in all matters of faith and practice. From the Word, we believe in One God, eternally existent in the three persons of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.


In the beginning, people were created in God’s image for the purpose of glorifying, enjoying, serving, and being in a loving relationship with God forever. Through the sin of disobedience, however, men and women have destroyed this relationship with God and are condemned to death and eternal separation from God.


Yet, because of His gracious and merciful love, God the Father sent into the world His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to pay the penalty for our sin. With loving obedience, Jesus paid that penalty when His blood was shed on a cross at Calvary. Three days after His death, Jesus physically rose from the dead before ascending into Heaven where He sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. All who turn from their sins and choose to follow Christ as their personal Lord and Savior are forgiven their sins and given new and eternal life.


With this choice, believers are blessed with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit who works daily to transform our lives into the likeness of our Savior—as we draw closer to both God and one another. Our developing relationship with one another is demonstrated through prayerful intercession and concrete acts of love, encouragement, sacrifice, and support.


The primary purpose of A Quiet Place is to demonstrate this love towards those engaged in full-time ministry."
