"Changing Lives Forever, One Camper at a Time"


Statement of Faith

All Camp Cedarbrook board members and staff serving in any capacity shall be committed to Christ and His service.

We Believe:

In one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (John 14:16-17, Matthew 28:19).

Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man (Matthew 1:18-23).

The Scriptures of Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God, inerrant in the original writings, and of supreme and final authority in faith and life (2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 3:16-17).

We were created in the image of God; we sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born in sin and this sinful nature is the origin of all sinful acts in thought, word and deed (Genesis 1:26; Romans 5:12; Isaiah 59:2; Romans 6:23).

The Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood (Romans 5:8-9).

All who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit, and thereby become children of God (John 1:12; Romans 8:9).

In the bodily resurrection of Christ and His ascension to heaven, and in His present work as High Priest and Advocate (1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Hebrews 4:14-16).

In the personal return of Jesus Christ (Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).

In the bodily resurrection of the just to everlasting blessedness, and the unjust to everlasting punishment (Acts 24:15; Revelation 20:15; Romans 6:23)

 

Unifying Denominational Differences

 

Camp Cedarbrook staff members are asked not to promote or practice denominational distinctives which are not found in the Camp Cedarbrook Statement of Faith. We encourage the unity we find through the Holy Spirit by adhering to the basic beliefs we hold in common.
