Statement of Belief
The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of
God and constitutes completed and final revelation. The Bible, in its original autograph,
is without error in whole and in part, including theological concepts as well as
geographical and historical details.
God has existed from all eternity in three
persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ was God come
in human flesh being fully God and fully man, except without sin.
All men are in violation of God's righteous
requirements and His holy character both by nature and by act, and are therefore under His
wrath and just condemnation. The central purpose of the coming of Jesus Christ was to pay
the penalty for man's sin through His substitutionary death on the cross - the successful
accomplishment of which was attested to by His subsequent visible, bodily resurrection.
Salvation is offered as a gift, free to the
sinner. This gift must be responded to in individual faith, not trusting in any personal
works whatsoever, but in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ alone.
not require that participants agree with all points of its Statement of
Faith. Only that all participants recognize and accept that HCYA and its
leadership adheres to the Statement of Faith.
