Let’s Pray Today is an independent organization without institutional ties to a particular church or denomination. Our Statement of Faith is focused on the truths that have bound Christians together through the ages, across the boundaries of time, place, race, denomination and tradition.
The Bible. We believe the Bible to be inspired by the Holy Spirit, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God in all matters of faith and conduct. (Deuteronomy 4:2; Psalm 19:7-9; Proverbs 30:5,6; I Corinthians 2:13; Galatians 1:8-9; II Timothy 3:15-17; II Peter 1:20-21; Revelation 22:18-19 )
God. We believe that there is but one living and true God, infinite and all knowing, perfect in all His attributes, one in essence, eternally existing in three Persons-Father, Son and Holy Spirit-each equally deserving worship and obedience (Deut. 6:4; Mat. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14).
God the Father. We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal God; perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of each person, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ. (Genesis 21:33; Isaiah 40:28; Exodus 33:14; John 4:24; Revelation 4:8; Romans 11:33-34; Jeremiah 32:17; Ephesians 1:19-20; Jeremiah 31:3; Romans 5:8; II Samuel 24:14; I John 5:14-15)
God the Son. We believe in God the Son, Jesus Christ the Savior, the only begotten Son of God, in His deity, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His substitutionary and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His continuous intercession for His people, and in His personal return in power and in glory. (John 1:1, 2, 14, 18; John 3:16; Luke 1:34-35, & 24:27; Hebrews 4:15; Romans 3:23-26, & 8:34; Mark 8:38; Matthew 24:30; I Corinthians 15:3-4)
God the Holy Spirit. We believe in God the Holy Spirit, the Helper and Comforter, in His daily guidance and revelation of truth, in His conviction of sin, righteousness and judgment, and in His indwelling presence at the moment of salvation, enabling believers to live godly lives. (John 3:5-8, 14:16-17, & 16:13-14; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 4:30-32, & 5:18)
The Church. We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in the body of our Lord Jesus Christ, of which He is the head.� The purpose of the church is to glorify God by growing in faith and knowledge of God through instruction in the Word, fellowship, obedience to His Word, and advancing and communicating the gospel to the entire world (Mat. 28:19; Acts 2:38-43; Eph 1:22; Eph. 4:5, 13-16; Eph. 5:23; Heb. 10: 24-25).
Sin. We believe that everyone is born with a sinful nature, separated from God and in need of salvation. Rebirth through the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for salvation through the repentance of sin and the acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. (John 3:5-8; John 5:24; Ephesians 1:6-7, 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; I Peter 1:23; Acts 2:21)
Salvation. We believe salvation is wholly of God by grace on the basis of the redemption of Jesus Christ through His shed blood, and not on the basis of human merit or works (John 1:12; Eph. 1:7; 2:8-10; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 2 Tim 1:9).
Works. We believe every believer is called to purposefully complete works which God has specifically prepared in advance for him/her to do. Works further God’s Kingdom on earth and are for His glory alone. At end of the age, every believer will be rewarded based on the works s/he has done in love. (Matt 16:27; 1 Cor 13:1-3; Gal 6:9-10; 2Tim 2:21).
