|Staying in the Word|
The following is a Statement of Faith presented by Cliff Relyea. In it I am recognizing that the Bible is the very Word of the living God to man, and understanding the priority of knowing and obeying its truths, I am deeply committed to studying and teaching Scripture with diligence and authority. These truths do not exist because I have chosen to believe them, but rather because God and His Word are true (Psalm 119:160), and by His grace He has granted me eyes to see and ears to hear.
This material presents my convictions regarding the major theological
truths of the Bible, built on years of study and teaching. This Statement
of Faith has been adapted from the Doctrinal Statement of Grace
Community Church of Sun Valley, California. I am personally in
the debt of the elder board of that church and the Biblically accurate
teaching of John MacArthur that has been the catalyst for my spiritual
growth and theological understanding. These are the primary doctrines
of the Christian faith.
