We Are

Doctrinal Statement...What We Believe

THE BIBLE

The Holy Bible is the divinely inspired, the only infallible, authoritative word of God.

The Holy Bible reveals God and His will to man. The Holy Bible has God as its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error. The Holy Bible is the sole authority for Christian living. 

GOD THE FATHER

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We worship the one and only unchanging, sovereign God, the Creator and Ruler of all things in heaven and earth. God is manifest in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ, The Only Son of God

The Holy Bible is the divinely inspired, the only infallible, authoritative word of God.

The Holy Bible reveals God and His will to man. The Holy Bible has God as its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error. The Holy Bible is the sole authority for Christian living. 

Holy Spirit

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We worship the one and only unchanging, sovereign God, the Creator and Ruler of all things in heaven and earth. God is manifest in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Man

Man is made in the image of God. Man is created to worship God, to glorify Him and to have dominion over the earth. Sin separates man from God, and man is eternally doomed unless he receives salvation in Jesus Christ’s shed blood.

Salvation

Since all persons are separated from God by sin and are in need of forgiveness, God offers the free gift of salvation. Each person must individually receive (appropriate) this gift, repent of sin and place their faith in Jesus Christ and confess Him as Savior and Lord.

Man

Man is made in the image of God. Man is created to worship God, to glorify Him and to have dominion over the earth. Sin separates man from God, and man is eternally doomed unless he receives salvation in Jesus Christ’s shed blood.

Eternal Security of the Believer

We believe our true salvation, provided by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ alone, is eternally secure. It is imperishable and no man or circumstance can snatch us out of the powerful hand of God because Jesus Christ has made an everlasting covenant with us.

Priesthood of the Believer

Every believer is a minister and has direct access to God through the high priest, Jesus Christ.

The Church

Jesus Christ is the head of His body, the church. The body of Christ is composed of believers. The purpose of the church is to carry out His mission in the world.

Baptism and the Lord’s Supper

Baptism by immersion follows Christ’s example, symbolizing death, burial and resurrection to new life in Christ. It serves as a public testimony of faith and act of obedience after accepting Christ as personal Savior and Lord. The Lord’s Supper is an act of obedience and a testimony of faith. It symbolically memorializes the death of Jesus Christ. Self examination and confession of sins should proceed participation in the Lord’s supper.

The Cross and the Exchanged Life

Sonflower Ministries teaches the healing and transforming power of the cross. The term “exchanged life” is directly related to the believer’s discovery of a new identity in Christ. Most Christians have been taught that Christ died for their sins, but few have been taught the truth of their death with Him. Consequently, few Christians find victory in their lives. Although they have been set free from the penalty of their sins, they have not yet experienced freedom from the domination of the flesh.
