MISSION AND DOCTRINAL STATEMENT MISSION STATEMENT Knowing that all of God's creation, including the laws and wonders of science, speak to the nature and message of God, Wonders of Science exists to proclaim the message of salvation through Jesus Christ by using science demonstrations. DOCTRINAL STATEMENT Article I God is a Person who has revealed Himself as a Trinity in unity, Father,Son and Holy Spirit-three Persons and yet but one God ( Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; 1 Corinthians 8:6). Article II The Bible, including both the Old and the New Testaments, is a divine revelation, the original autographs of which were verbally inspired by the Holy Spirit ( 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21). Article III Jesus Christ is the image of the invisible God, which is to say, He is Himself very God; He took upon Him our nature, being conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary; He died upon the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice for the sin of the world; He arose from the dead in the body in which He was crucified; He ascended into heaven in that body glorified,where He is now, our interceding High Priest; He will come again personally and visibly to set up His kingdom and to judge the quick and the dead ( Colossians 1:15; Philippians 2:5-8; Matthew 1:18-25; 1 Peter 2:24-25; Luke 24; Hebrews 4:14-16; Acts 1:9-11; I Thessalonians 4:16-18; Matthew25:31-46; Revelation 11:15-17; 20:4-6, 11-15). Article IV Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin, and, in that sense, is lost; this is true of all men, and except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God; salvation is by grace through faith inChrist who His own self bore our sins in His own body on the tree; the retribution of the wicked and unbelieving and the reward of the righteous are everlasting, and as the reward is conscious, so is the retribution ( Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:10,23; John 3:3; Acts 13:38-39; 4:12; John 3:16; Matthew 25:46; 2 Corinthians 5:1; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10). Article V The Church is an elect company of believers baptized by the Holy Spiritinto one body; its mission is to witness concerning its Head, Jesus Christ, preaching the gospel among all nations; it will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air ere He appears to set up His kingdom ( Acts 2:41; 15:13-17; Ephesians 1:3-6; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:6-8; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18).
