Doctrinal BeliefsMembership to IHFC is open to all who profess faith alone in Jesus Christ and are in agreement with the church’s doctrinal beliefs. Our beliefs are derived from the Holy Scriptures.
We believe the Holy Scriptures to be the verbally, inspired Word of God authoritative and without error in the original manuscripts. We further believe that the Scriptures of both the Old and New Testaments are designed for our practical instruction in faith and conduct.
2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21
We believe that no one can enter the Kingdom of God unless born again spiritually and that the new birth of the believer comes only through faith in The Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God. We believe, also, that the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ has accomplished our redemption and that this redemption is by the grace of God, an unmerited gift, given in love by God and not the result of any human works.
John 3:17-18; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 3:13; Romans 4:4-5
We believe that upon receiving The Lord Jesus Christ by faith, the believer passes immediately out of spiritual death into spiritual life and into fellowship with God.
We also believe that once this salvation is accomplished, we and all true believers everywhere shall be kept saved forever.
