Our Statement of Faith


Urban Family Ministries holds several core beliefs that form the foundation of our ministry.


We Believe:

  • That the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are inspired by God and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.

  • In one God, the Creator; eternally existing in three persons:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

  • That Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, and that He was and remains true God and true man.

  • That God created Adam and Eve in the divine image; that they sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God; and that, as a result of Adam’s sin, all human beings are now born with a sinful nature and stand guilty before God.

  • That the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who believe in Him are justified.

  • In the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and in His present life there for us, as High Priest and Advocate.

  • In the blessed hope of the personal and imminent return of Jesus Christ.

  • That all who by faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.

  • That the Holy Spirit indwells and gives spiritual life to all believers, enables them to understand biblical truth, empowers them for godly living, and equips them for service and witness.

  • In the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
