What We Believe
Scriptural Basis of Belief
Isaiah 61:1 — "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound." (KJV)
Statement of Faith
The Orlando Union Rescue Mission is a member of Citygate Network and subscribes to its doctrinal statement.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, ultimate, authoritative Word of God.
We believe there is one God, eternally existing as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is deity, that He was born of a virgin, that we are redeemed by His atoning death through His shed blood, that He bodily resurrected and ascended into Heaven, and that He will come again in power and great glory.
We believe that men are saved through a direct, personal encounter with the risen Lord, at which time they are regenerated by the Holy Spirit. This event we hold to be an experience, rather than a doctrinal supposition.
The Holy Spirit
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whom Christ indwells each believer enabling him to live a godly life of obedience as he reaches for maturity.
We believe the Holy Spirit unites all true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and that together they form one body, the church.
