We believe the identity of the Body of Christ on the earth is primarily perceived through the local church. While encouraging the voluntary association of local churches, and recognizing the need of consensus on matters of fundamental doctrine and conduct, we strongly confess the local church to be sovereign and autonomous.

Belief Statement

Colleyville Watch Live Watch Live. Our Statement of Faith. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God, speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind and is the sole and final source of all that we believe.

Reflections on Theology and Moral Philosophy

For purposes of Covenant Church's faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, our Board is Covenant Church's final interpretive authority on the Bible's meaning and application. He was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died a vicarious and atoning death for the sins of the world, resurrected bodily for our justification, and now reigns in glory until all things be put under His feet.

We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally-challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. We are, therefore, called to defend, protect, and value all human life. We believe that man was made in the image of God and is the crown of creation.

He is now, by reason of the fall, spiritually depraved and alienated from his Creator. Catholics believe that after the death of any human person, immediate private judgment occurs and the person goes directly to heaven, hell, or purgatory an intermediate place in preparation for heaven. Article 9: the holy c atholic Church , the Communion of Saints , Catholics believe that the Church is more than a mere institution and certainly not a necessary evil. Article the forgiveness of sins , Christ came to save the world from sin. Belief in the forgiveness of sins is essential to Christianity.

Catholicism believes sins are forgiven in Baptism and in the Sacrament of Penance.

“We Believe. …”:

Article the resurrection of the body , From the Catholic perspective, a human being is a union of body and soul, so death is just the momentary separation of body and soul until the end of the world, the Second Coming of Christ, the General Judgment, and the resurrection of the dead. The just go, body and soul, into heaven, and the damned go, body and soul, into hell.

Article And in life everlasting. As Christ Our Savior died, so, too, must mere mortals. As he rose, so shall all human beings. Death is the only way to cross from this life into the next. At the very moment of death, private judgment occurs; Christ judges the soul:. He descended into hell. On the third day he rose again.

He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.

Faith in Divine Providence Strengthens Our Reasons for Hope | sumbiphocon.tk

St Augustine teaches us that as God Loves us, so we should Love God with all of our heart and with all of our soul, so we should love our neighbor as ourselves. Here St Augustine teaches us that man consists of spirit, soul, and body. Here the modern definitions conflict with the ancient definitions. What St Augustine here calls spirit is what we call soul, the eternal soul that distinguishes man from beast, the soul that we possess because we were created in the likeness of God.

What St Augustine here calls soul is the Greek animating soul that gives life to the soul.

Article of Faith 8

Aristotle says that all plants, animals, and people have souls, for the soul is what animates the body. St Augustine also teaches that the soul is the flesh when it chases after carnal things, but the nature of the soul is perfect when it follows the spirit that follows God.
