Statement of Faith

Israel Wayne adheres to the Nicene Creed (AD 325):

We believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
begotten from the Father before all ages,
God from God,
Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made;
of the same essence as the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven;
he became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary,
and was made human.
He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered and was buried.
The third day he rose again, according to the Scriptures.
He ascended to heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again with glory
to judge the living and the dead.
His kingdom will never end.

And we believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, the giver of life.
He proceeds from the Father and the Son,
and with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified.
He spoke through the prophets.
We believe in one holy universal church.
We affirm one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look forward to the resurrection of the dead,
and to life in the world to come. Amen.

In addition to the Nicene Creed, Israel Wayne adheres to the Danvers Statement on the topic of the Biblical roles of men and women in the home and church. In addition to these documents, Israel also agrees with the Statement of Faith published by Answers in Genesis, and the Principles of Scientific and Biblical Creationism, published by Institute for Creation Research. Israel has signed the Statement on Social Justice and the Gospel.

Israel Wayne and his family attend an independent, non-denominational, Evangelical, Bible-believing church.
