​MISSION STATEMENT

Motivated by compassion and love, Christian Berets reaches out and cares for those with Special needs and their families by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ through camping, retreats and varied activities.


STATEMENT OF FAITH


  • We believe the Bible, the Old Testament and the New Testament, to be the inspired, infallible, and authoritative word of God.  (II Tim. 3:16; II Pet. 1:21; Heb. 4:12)


  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God was born of a virgin.  He lived a sinless life, was crucified, shedding his blood for the remission of sins; was buried, rose bodily from the grave the third day, ascended on high where at the right hand of the Father, He is our high priest and advocate.  We believe in His personal return to power and glory.  We are looking for His imminent return.  (John 1:11; I Cor. 15:3-4; Heb. 1:8; John 1:17-18; John 14:3; I Thess. 4:13-18; I Cor. 15:51-53; Rev. 19; Acts 1:9;  I John 2:11; Heb.4:14-16; Matt. 1:23; Heb.9:22)


  • We believe that, for the salvation of lost and sinful man, faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit are essential.  Man must be born again.  (Rom. 5:12; John 3:7; Eph. 2:1-2; II Cor. 5:17; Isa. 53:6; Titus 3:5; John 1:12)


  • We believe in the personal and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ and this blessed hope has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer. (I Thess. 4:13-18; Acts 1:11; Rev. 20:1-6; John 14:3; I Cor. 15:51-53)


  • We believe in the resurrection of both the just and the unjust.  Physical death does not end all.  Those who know Christ will be resurrected into eternal life; those who do not know Christ will be lost.  (John 5:28-29; Rev. 20:12-14; I Cor. 15)


  • We believe in the eternal destiny of man.  Heaven is a real place of eternal joy and bliss for the redeemed.  (John 12:1-3)  Hell is a real place of eternal condemnation for those outside of Christ.  (Rev. 10:11-15)


  • We believe in the “Great Commission” of the Lord Jesus Christ, “Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.” (Matt. 28:19-20) “Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you…”  (Mark 16:15 ) “Preach the Gospel in all the world!”  (Acts 1:8)


  • We believe God intentionally designed and created humanity male and female. (Gen. 1:27, 5:1-2; Mark 10:6)  We believe marriage is ordained and instituted by God and, according to the Scriptures, can only exist and be fulfilled between one man and one woman.  A civil government’s sanction of a union will be recognized as a legitimate marriage by the church only to the extent that it is consistent with the definition of “marriage” found in this Statement of Faith. (Gen. 2:21-24; Mark 10:2-12; Matt. 19:3-11)  We believe marriage is a picture of the relationship of Christ and the Church and is to be a lifelong, covenant relationship between a man and a woman based on love, respect, mutual submission and personal sacrifice. (Eph. 5:21-33, Mal. 2:14-16, Matt. 5:31-32; I Cor. 7:10-16; I Tim. 3:2,12; I Pet. 3:1-7)  We believe God intended sexual intimacy to be enjoyed only within the context of the male and female marriage relationship; and that all other sexual relations outside of marriage are personally destructive, sinful, inconsistent with the teachings of the Bible, and forbidden by God.  (Gen. 1:28, 2:25; Heb. 13:4; Lev. 18:1-30; Rom. 1:24-32; I Cor. 7:2-5; I Thess. 4:1-8; Jude 1:7)
