WHO WE ARE

Since 1978 Camp Maranatha has been a place separated "unto the glory and praise of God".

STATEMENT OF FAITH
  1. We believe that the Bible is God’s Holy Word, given through verbal inspiration from God Himself. The Bible is the supreme and final authority in all matter of faith, doctrine, and practice, and is the complete and inerrant Word of God.( II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1: 19-21).

  2. We believe that there is only one true and living God, existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. ( Genesis 1: 26; Luke 3: 21-22 ).

  3. We believe in the Deity, virgin birth, voluntary death, and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Isaiah 7: 14; Matthew 1: 18-25; Romans 5:8; Mark 16:1-6 ).

  4. We believe in the fallen state of all mankind, where each person is a sinner condemned to hell, to an eternal separation from God, and they can only escape that by receiving the eternal salvation, by trusting completely in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, which is offered to all. ( Romans 3:10,23, 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; II Peter 3:9; John 14:6).

  5. We believe in the eternal security of the saved, who should live righteous and separated lives, not to maintain their salvation, but constrained by their love and obedience to their Lord and owner. (John 6:37, 10:28-29; Romans 8:35-39).

  6. We believe in a local church where Christ is the head; where it’s task is the salvation of souls near and far; where it’s officers are pastor (bishop) and deacons; where it’s ordinances are baptism by immersion and the Lord’s supper; where it’s separation is total from the world, from false religions, and from the state; where it’s motive for coming together is for worshiping, praying and studying God’s word; where it’s members are saved by grace through faith and baptized by immersion. (Ephesians 5:23; Matthew 28:19-20; I Timothy 3:1-16; Titus 1:6-9; Matthew 28:19; Luke 22:19- 20; I Peter 1:15-16).

  7. We believe in the visible, personal, and pre-millennial return of Jesus Christ to take His bride. (Acts 1:9-11; I Thessalonians 4:13-18)
