CPI’s Statement of Faith
The sole basis of our beliefs is the Bible, God’s infallible written Word, fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, without error, acknowledging it is of supreme and final authority. - There is one God, eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. - Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary. He led a sinless life, took on Himself all our sins, died and rose again, and is seated at the right hand of the Father as mediator and advocate. - All men everywhere are lost and face the judgment of God, and need to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through His shed blood on the cross. Eph 2:8-9: “For by grace are ye saved…” and Romans 10:13: “For whosoever shall call upon the name of Lord shall be saved” - Jesus Christ is coming again soon to earth to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.

“Fulfill my joy, that you be like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem the other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.” ~ Philippians 2:2-4
