STATEMENT OF FAITH
The Christian Rider Ministry is an interdenominational Christian ministry. We are not a club nor do we operate as such, but rather we are a network of independent members that have chosen to work together and wear a common patch. Members may come from a variety of backgrounds and denominations. Members may disagree on smaller matters but the following is a summary of what all members believe:
I. We believe in one God who is revealed in the three persons of the Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit). We believe that each person of the trinity is equally God.
II. We believe that God is the creator of the universe and all things in it. He is omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient.
III. We believe that Jesus was conceived and born of a virgin named Mary.
IV. We believe Jesus lived a sinless life, qualifying Him to forgive our sin with His blood.
V. We believe all have sinned and fallen short of God's glory and in need of a savior.
VI. We believe that salvation can be found only through Jesus Christ.
VII. We believe that Christ suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified on the cross, He was buried and on the third day He rose from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father.
VIII. We believe that those who belong to Christ will inherit eternal life in heaven.
IX. We believe that those who die without accepting the gift of salvation go to a place called hell for eternity. X. We believe that Jesus will return and gather His people, both living and dead.
XI. We believe the Bible is the inspired word of God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction and for training. (ii) XII. We believe in the water baptism of believers as a testimony of faith and obedience to Christ.
XII. We believe in the water baptism of believers as a testimony of faith and obedience to Christ.
XIII. We believe in the observance of communion in remembrance of our Lord.
XIV. We believe Christ holds supreme authority over all people, governments, nations and laws.
XV. We believe that Christ is the head of the church and He alone should govern it.
XVI. We believe in the union of marriage between one man with one woman.
XVII. We believe that all ministers should follow the example of Christ as servant-leaders
Please note that the faiths of Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Seventh-day Adventist, Christian Science, Scientology, Bahá ì, and New Age are inconsistent with our fundamental beliefs about the deity of Christ and His work. Therefore we discourage anyone holding to these beliefs from joining this ministry. ii. We do not acknowledge the Book of Mormon, the Gnostic Gospels, the book of Enoch, the Quran, the Watchtower or anything similar to be inspired scripture iii. We do not recognize or condone polygamy or same-sex unions nor do we believe them to be ordained or accepted by God
