Doctrinal Statement

WEC’s Doctrine

We believe the Holy Scriptures, as originally given, to be inspired, the only infallible authoritative Word of God.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His mediatorial work and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe in the universal sinfulness and guilt of all mankind since the fall, rendering man subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, redemption through the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit are absolutely essential.

We believe in the justification of the sinner solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ who comprise the church, which is His body.
