GBUR Faith Statement

The Faith Statement of the GBUR is identical to that of the international Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES). It comprises the following:
  1. The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit are one in the Godhead
  2. The Holy Scriptures, as originally given, are divinely inspired and entirely trustworthy; the alone have supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
  3. God is sovereign in regard to Creation Redemption, and Judgment.
  4. Since the fall, all men are universally sinners and guilty before God and are therefore subject to God´s wrath and condemnation.
  5. Jesus Christ, The incarnate Son of God has undergone that condemnation, dying on the Cross as our representative and substitute; it is only through that atoning death that God delivers us from sin.
  6. Jesus-Christ was bodily raised from the dead and ascended to the right hand of the father.
  7. By His grace, God justifies the sinner through faith alone
  8. The Holy Spirit accomplishes the work of regeneration.
  9. The Holy Spirit indwells and works in every true believer
  10. The holy, one and universal church to which belong all true believers is the Body of Christ.
  11. The church expects the return in person of Jesus Christ.
