Caribbean Lifetime Missions’ Statement of Faith

Our Vision & Goal:

Our vision is to reach out to the people of the Caribbean with the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ by meeting their physical needs through social and economical programs. Our goal is to educate the underprivileged, and teach skills that will help secure jobs for years to come and we believe that by addressing the physical needs of the people we will also address their deeper spiritual needs.  We strive to show the love of Christ in a practical way through various acts of service, and train others to do the same all throughout the Caribbean.

WE BELIEVE

The Bible is the divinely inspired and inerrant word of God.

God did reveal himself as eternally self-existent, the great I AM of the Universe, the Redeemer of mankind, and as Trinity manifested as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Exod.3:14; Isa. 43:10-11; Matt. 28:19)

The Bible affirms the full deity (John 1:1-8,8:58) and full humanity (John 1:14; Heb.2:14-17) of Jesus Christ. The Bible also affirms His virgin birth (Matt1:18-25; Luke 1:26-35), His miracles (John 12-37), His atoning death, His bodily resurrection (1 Cor. 15:3-4) and His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Acts 1:19;Heb. 1:2).

God created man in his own image (Gen. 1:26-27) but man's transgressions brought sin and death upon all men (Rom. 5:12). Hence, all men and women are separated from God and in need of salvation from sin (Rom. 3:23).

The death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ brought salvation to man through God. If you repent and receive Christ as Savior by faith you will be saved. (Rom. 3:21; 5:6-11, Eph.2:8).

Every regenerated believer is a member of the Church, the body of Christ ,which is inhabited by God through the Holy Spirit (Eph.2:22). The mission of the Church includes worldwide evangelism, building up of saints in faith and corporate worship of God (Matt.28:18-20; 1 Cor. 12:13,28: Eph. 4:11-16).

Christ's second coming involves the catching away of the Church (1Thes. 4:16,17) and the actual visible return of Christ with his saints to reign with Him on earth (Zech. 14:5; Matt. 24:30,31; Rev. 1,7,19;11-14;20:1-6).
