What We Believe

Home > What We Believe

Gospel Light continues on the foundation established by Dr. Henrietta C. Mears and to the mission God called her to.

The mission of Gospel Light is to know Christ and make Him known; to provide His Church with effective Bible teaching and learning resources for use in making disciples, empowering them for godly living, equipping them for ministry and the evangelization of the world.

To accomplish this mission, our strategic vision is to provide local church leaders with evangelism, discipleship and Christian education resources which will help them reach for Christ and make disciples of their church's families, singles, children and youth, and which will help them equip their church to reach their communities, cities and regions for Christ.

Our Beliefs

We Believe the Bible to be the Divinely inspired and authoritative Word of God, the only infallible rule of faith and practice.

We Believe in one God, creator and sustainer of the universe, who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, who being fully God became fully man, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross, was raised bodily, is exalted to God's right hand, and will personally come again.

We Believe that all have sinned and are guilty before God, and, as a result, all, both individually and corporately, suffer the consequences of the fall and are under condemnation.

We Believe that, because of His love, God sent His Son Jesus Christ, who inaugurated His kingdom, provided an atonement for sin, conquered the principalities and powers, is reconciling the world to Himself, and will consummate His kingdom in righteousness, power and glory.

We Believe that all those who repent and believe in Christ are delivered from the judgment of God and are born again into life eternal, and are called to be instruments of God's righteousness and reconciliation in human society.

We Believe in the Holy Spirit who glorifies Jesus Christ, works in all people to bring them to faith and obedience, and dwells in believers equipping and empowering them for lives of holiness and fruitful service.

We Believe the Church, the Body of Christ, consists of all believers and exists to fulfill Christ's mission, making disciples of all nations and bringing healing and justice to human society, all to the glory of God.

We believe in the resurrection of the body, the everlasting punishment of unbelievers and the everlasting blessedness of believers in the presence of Christ
