Spiritual Orphans Network gratefully accepts and gladly submits to the Bible – the canonical Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments – as the revealed Word of God that is unchanging and is the final authority and norm in all matters of proclamation, faith, and life.
Through the Scriptures, God’s Spirit speaks to us to create and sustain Christian faith and fellowship for service in the world and that the proclamation of God’s message to us as both law and gospel is the Word of God, revealing judgment and mercy in the person and work of Jesus Christ through whom God was pleased to reconcile all things to himself (Galatians 3:23-26; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 4:12).
We believe in the Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19, John 14:16-17).
We believe, teach, and confess that Jesus Christ is the Word of God incarnate, through whom everything was made and through whose life, death, and resurrection God fashions a new creation. Jesus is the only Savior and Lord who is “the way and the truth and the life” (ESV John 14:6), and that “there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (ESV Acts 4:12).
We believe that the Holy Spirit calls, gathers, enlightens and sanctifies believers and is the Spirit of mission who provides the power and the giftings for Christians to be witnesses to this new life in Jesus Christ everywhere in the world (Acts 1:8, Titus 3:4-7).
We believe that the Heavenly Father is pleased to receive all people who come to Him through repentance and faith in His Son, Jesus Christ, and wishes to welcome them into His eternal Family (John 3:16-17).
We believe, teach, and confess the Gospel, recorded in the Holy Scriptures and confessed in the ecumenical creeds, as the power of God to create and sustain the Priesthood of All Believers for God’s mission in the world (Ephesians 2:8-10; 1 Peter 2:4-10).
