Emmanuel Bible College Statement of Faith

In 1991 the Presidents of the Missionary churches from around the world met on the campus of Emmanuel Bible College. There was a desire to choose or develop a statement of faith which would be common to all countries represented, and to which each President could wholeheartedly subscribe. The unanimous choice was the statement of faith of the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada.

Because of EBC’s desire to be in agreement with the leading representatives of the denomination of which we are a part, and because of our desire to demonstrate our unity with evangelical believers across our great country, we have adopted the statement of faith of the EFC, as follows:

We believe in:

  • The Holy Scriptures, as originally given by God, are divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy, and constitute the only supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
  • There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • Our Lord Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh; we affirm his virgin birth, sinless humanity, divine miracles, vicarious and atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension, ongoing mediatorial work, and personal return in power and glory.
  • The salvation of lost and sinful humanity is possible only through the merits of the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, received by faith apart from works, and is characterized by regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
  • The Holy Spirit enables believers to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • The Church, the body of Christ, consists of all true believers.
  • Ultimately God will judge the living and the dead, those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

I agree with the above Statement of Faith, as adopted by Emmanuel Bible College.
