Statement of Faith
Sonlight Ministries exists to reach and train Haitian people to reach and train others for the kingdom of God by effectively communicating the gospel through lifestyle and words.
We believe and teach the following:
We affirm our beliefs in the one eternal God, Creator, Lord and Savior of the world, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit who governs all things to the purpose of His will.
We affirm the divine inspiration, truthfulness, and authority of both the Old and New Testament Scriptures in their entirety as the only written word of God, without error in all that it affirms, and the only infallible rule of faith and practice.
We affirm that all men and women are unique individuals, created in Godís image, capable of intimate fellowship with Him and with the potential for personal fulfillment and positive social good. We further affirm that all men and women, by virtue of Adamís sin and their own personal rebellion, are sinners demonstrating their sinfulness in numerous personal and social dimensions.
We affirm that there is only one Savior and only one gospel. Jesus Christ, being Himself the only God-man, who gave Himself as the only ransom for sinners by His death on the cross, is the only mediator between God and man. There is no other name by which we may be saved.
We affirm that the church is the bride of Christ, the body of Christ, the community of believers, and the primary manifestation of the kingdom of God on earth. The well-being of the believer, the progress of the gospel, and the health of society at large are promoted by the vital functioning of Christian congregations in every level of society.
We affirm that Christ sends His redeemed people into the world as the Father sent Him and that this calls for a similar deep and costly penetration of the world. World evangelism requires the whole church to take the whole gospel to the world.
We affirm that division is a hindrance to the work of evangelism and we recognize that Christ prayed that His followers might all be one. As a result, we firmly advocate the restoration of the church revealed in the Scriptures as the only sure way to achieve Christian unity.
