Doctrinal Statement:

Although current members come from a wide variety of denominational backgrounds (e.g. Baptist, Evangelical Free, Methodist, Christian & Alliance, Independent, and more), InterAct Ministries is a non-denominational, non-charismatic mission organization whose members adhere to a corporate statement of doctrinal belief. Below is a brief summary of InterAct's doctrinal statement; a copy of the complete statement can also be downloaded. -We believe that the Bible is the inerrant, verbally inspired Word of God. It is our guide in all matters of personal and organizational life. -We believe in the triune Godhead, composed of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. -We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, his virgin birth, sinless life, death, bodily resurrection and future physical return to earth. -We believe that through His death, all who receive Christ as personal Saviour are declared righteous by faith on the basis of His shed blood. Because it is only through Jesus Christ that men are saved, those who have never accepted Him are lost and will spend eternity apart from God. Therefore we are compelled to respond obediently to the Great Commission by going and making disciples of all nations. -We believe that at the time of salvation, the Holy Spirit baptizes all believers into the Body of Christ and permanently indwells them. -We believe that all true believers once saved, will be kept saved by the power of God forever. -We believe that all believers have eternal life and are expected to live a godly life that involves separation from the sinful pleasures of the world system.
