Mission statement


Statement of faith

Doulos uses the following to express its statement of faith:

In the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Bible and that it is the supreme and final authority for faith and life.

In the Unity and trinity of the Godhead; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three Persons are one God, having precisely the same nature, attributes, and perfections.

In Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, our sole Mediator; we believe further in His eternal existence as God, His incarnations and virgin birth, His sinless life, His death on the cross as the substitutionary atonement for sin, His literal, bodily resurrection from the dead, His present ministry of intercession in Heaven, and His personal, future return to earth.

In the Holy Spirit, His personality, and His activity in regeneration, sanctification, and preservation.

That man was created in the image of God, that he sinned in Adam, and that he is now a sinner by nature and by choice.

In salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, apart from human merit, works, or ceremonies.

That the church is the spiritual body of which Christ is the Head and that there is a twofold aspect to the church, the universal and the local.

In the resurrection of the human body; the eternal existence of all men either in heaven or Hell; in divine judgments, rewards, and punishments.

That we are under obligation to contend earnestly for the faith once delivered to the saints.
