ILC Statement of Faith
Our Christian Belief

In One God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
In Jesus Christ as God manifested in the flesh, His virgin birth, His sinless human life, His divine miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, His mediatorial work, His personal return in power and glory and His offer of eternal life through faith in Him.
In the salvation of lost and sinful man through the shed blood of the Jesus Christ, by faith in Him alone, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
In the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord, Jesus Christ.
In the Unity of the Spirit of all true believers, the Church, the Body of Christ.
