Statement of Faith

As a non-profit Christian ministry, Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission bases its work on the teachings of Jesus Christ. We take seriously His command to feed hungry people, clothe those who are naked, and provide shelter for those who are homeless. We consistently combine our faith with action by serving those in greatest need regardless of their religious beliefs, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

We affirm our Christian identity with the following statement of faith:

1. We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God. (2 Tim. 3:16-17, 2 Pet. 1:20-21)

2. We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6:1, Matt. 28:19, Rom. 8:14-17, Eph. 4:4-6, 1 Tim. 2:5, 1 Pet. 1:2)

3. We believe in the deity and humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ:

• His virgin birth (Luke 1:35, John 1:1-2, John 1:14)
• His sinless life (Phil. 2:5-11)
• His miracles (Matt. 4:23)
• His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, the forgiveness of sins (Rom. 3:23-25, 2 Cor. 5:21, 1 John 2:1-2)
• His bodily resurrection from the dead (Rom. 8:34, 1 Cor. 15:3-5)
• His ascension into heaven, now seated at the right hand of the Father (Acts 1:9-11, Heb. 1:3, Heb. 9:24)
• His future return in power and glory (1 Thess. 4:16-18)

4. We believe that salvation of the lost is possible through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ by faith apart from works, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit. (Eph. 1:7, Eph. 2:8-9, John 1:12, John 3:36, 2 Cor. 5:17, Titus 3:5, John 14:17)

5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whom Christ indwells each believer enabling them to live a godly life of obedience as they reach for maturity. (John 14:17, Acts 1:8, John 16:13, John 14:26, 2 Cor. 1:21-22, Gal. 5:22-23)

6. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the saved and their eternal life with God. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the unsaved and their eternal separation from God. (1 Cor. 15:20-28, Matt. 25:45-46, Rev. 20:11-15)

7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ. (Eph. 2:13-14, Eph. 4:1-6, John 17:20-23, Phil. 2:1-4)
