Statement of Faith

The foundations of faith and doctrine of SOCEM are as set forth in the following “Statement of Faith”.SOCEM believes in:
  1. The one True God – God has revealed Himself as the Creator of all things and the Redeemer of mankind. He is manifested as the Triune God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

  2. The Holy Bible – the Old and New Testaments as the inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of God, the final authority in all matters of Christian faith and conduct.
  3. The Deity of Jesus Christ who, as the eternal Son of God, is fully and truly God. He is also fully and truly man, who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross as a sacrifice for sin and arose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and is now at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Advocate.
  4. His personal future return in power and glory.
  5. The sinfulness of man, and salvation by grace through faith in Christ who gave Himself unto death on the Cross, shedding His blood for the forgiveness of sin.

  6. The present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling, the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  7. The resurrection of the dead, the believer to life everlasting, and the unbeliever to the resurrection of judgment.
  8. The support and participation in the task of fulfilling the Great Commission as an obligation of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Since we are an interdenominational organization we recognize that there are other doctrines, held by various Christian believers, which they believe to be consistent with the above. However, such doctrines will not be incorporated except as approved by the SOCEM Board.
