About Galilee

Our Statement of Faith

  • We believe... that the Holy Scriptures are the divinely inspired Word of God and that they are the sole authority in teaching, encouraging, comforting, correcting, and training in righteous living.
    2 Timothy 3:16

  • We believe... in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
    Matthew 28:19

  • We believe... that Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and was born of the virgin Mary. He died for sin and rose from the dead and is now exalted and seated at the right hand of the Father.
    Matthew 1:23

  • We believe... that the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Godhead, convicts men of sin. He regenerates sinners, and indwells, instructs, guides, and empowers the believer for godly living and service.
    John 16:7-10

  • We believe... that man is totally depraved, having been born with a sinful nature. He is eternally lost unless he is regenerated by the Holy Spirit.
    Romans 3:23 and John 3:7

  • We believe... that salvation is solely by grace through faith in the redemptive work of Christ. Man must acknowledge his sinful state, cry out to God for mercy and receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
    Ephesians 2:8 and 9

  • We believe... that the church is composed of regenerated believers and is the body of Christ. He is the head of the church and all believers are commissioned by Christ to propagate the Gospel unto the uttermost parts of the earth.
    Matthew 28:19 and 20
