Statement of Faith for SonSet Solutions Canada (Adopted May 26, 2022)
No grouping of words can fully express all that might be said as to our convictions and doctrinal position. However, as a general and comprehensive combination of the principal factors for which SonSet Solutions stands, the official SonSet Solutions Statement of Faith shall be as follows:
We believe the Bible, in its entirety, is the infallible, inerrant, and inspired Word of God. We believe it is without error as originally written and is relevant in every area of life today. We believe that it is the sole written revelation that rules the faith and practice for all Christians and alone can require what God has commanded or forbidden. (Matt. 5:18; John 16:12-13; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 1 Peter 1:21, 23, 25; 2 Peter 1:19-21; Rev. 22:18-19)
We believe there is one God who is infinite, eternal, and unchangeable in His being. We believe this one God exists eternally in three distinct yet fully divine persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6:4; John 1:1, 14; Acts 5:3-4; 1 Cor. 8:6; Eph. 1:3; Col. 1:15-17; Heb. 12:9)
We believe Jesus Christ is truly God and truly man, having two natures inseparably united in one divine person without confusion, mixture, separation, or division. We believe that Jesus Christ entered human form by the miracle of the virgin birth, that He lived a sinless life, was crucified, and died for our sins, was buried, rose on the third day for our justification, ascended to heaven, and now sits at the right hand of God as our Advocate. (Matt. 1:18-25; John 3:16; 1 Cor. 15:3-7; 1 Tim. 2:5; Heb. 1:3; 1 John 2:1; Rev. 1:7, 3:10, 19:11-16, 20:6).
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is God. His ministry is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. We believe that He brings about the new birth, indwells, baptizes, seals, anoints, and endows all who are regenerated with spiritual gifts. (John 15:26, 16:8, 3:3-6, 14:16-17, 14:26)
We believe that after God made the other creatures, He created man, both male and female, in His own image and likeness. But all individuals have rebelled against God by sinning against His holy character and law. As a result, we have alienated ourselves from God and have exposed ourselves to His righteous wrath, which will banish us eternally to hell if we are not forgiven. (Gen. 1, 2, 3; Mark 10:6; John 3:36; Rom. 1:18; Rom. 3:23; Rom. 5:12; Eph. 2:1-3)
Because all have sinned, atonement must be made for sinners to be reconciled to God. We believe Christ’s shed blood and death, in which He bore the punishment due to sinners, is the only payment for sin that God will accept. We believe that the only way to acceptance with God is by God’s grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone. All who genuinely believe in Christ alone are adopted by God into His family and receive eternal life. (John 1:12-13; John 3:16; John 6:37-40; Acts 4:12; Eph. 2:8- 9)
We believe that all those who have been saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone form the Church of Jesus Christ. The Church, also known as the Body of Christ, has an organized, visible presence throughout the world in the form of believers in Christ who meet to worship and serve God, observe the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper, and faithfully preach the gospel of Christ. (Matt. 28:19; 1 Cor. 12:12-13; Eph. 1:23; Eph. 2:22)
We believe in the personal, visible, and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, at the last day, to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself. We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the just and the unjust—the unjust to judgment and eternal conscious punishment in hell, and the just to eternal blessedness in the presence of Christ who sits on the throne in the new heaven and the new earth. (1 Cor. 15:51-52; 1 Thess. 1:10; 1 Thess. 4:13-18; 1 Thess. 5:9; 2 Thess. 2:7-8; Rev. 1:7, 19:11-16, 20:6)
The Christian’s Ministry
In view of Christ’s last command and recognizing the lost condition of all those who fail to accept the gospel message, we believe in the urgency of every Christian responding to the great commission of Christ. It is to the work of helping to carry out the plan of God in this age that SonSet Solutions is dedicated, in conformity with the last command of our Savior to be witnesses to the ends of the earth. (Matthew 28:19-20, 20; John 3:16; John 3:18, 36; Acts 1:8; Rom. 1:16)
All scripture is quoted from the Holy Bible, New International Version.
