Statement of Faith

Daniel Institute adheres to the doctrinal beliefs embodied in the Statement of Faith of the International Central Gospel Church, which reads as follows:

We Believe In:

  1. The Scripture, both Old and New Testaments, as the only infallible and authoritative Word of God and the only rule for Christian faith and conduct.
  2. The one true God, eternally existent in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  3. The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His soon-coming to rapture the Church, which is His Bride, and His future personal and bodily return to the earth in power and glory to rule for a thousand years.
  4. The redemptive work of Jesus Christ (His death, burial, resurrection, and ascension) as both efficient and sufficient for the provision of salvation to mankind.
  5. The baptism in the Holy Spirit, with the initial physical evidence of speaking in tongues (Acts 2:4) for all believers who ask for it.
  6. The operation and manifestation of all the gifts of the Holy Spirit as made available to the Church today, for service, edification, and comfort.
  7. Divine healing as provided for in the atonement of Christ and appropriated through the prayer of faith (1 Peter 2:24, James 5:14-16).
  8. The sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a holy life.
  9. The resurrection of the saved and the unsaved, the former to eternal life and the later to eternal damnation.
