Steadfast in Biblical Truth: Embracing Unity amidst Theological Diversity
At Faith, Hope & Love Ministries (FHLM), we stand firm in our commitment to the unchanging truths of Christianity, as outlined in the Bible. While theological diversity may spark differing opinions and discussions, we remain anchored in the foundational tenets of our faith. Our focus is on promoting unity, compassion, and understanding among believers, transcending denominational divides. We believe in fostering a community where love, practical help, and support for one another reign supreme, echoing the essence of Christ’s teachings. By embracing unity and remaining true to the timeless principles of our faith, we endeavour to build a harmonious and empowering environment where ministers and students from diverse backgrounds can grow and thrive together.
Our Foundational Beliefs:
- We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19 NIV – “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”)
- We affirm the divinity and humanity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, atoning death, resurrection, and ascension. (1 Timothy 3:16 NIV – “Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great: He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.”)
- We believe in the authority of the Bible as the inspired and infallible Word of God, and we adhere to its teachings for faith and practice. (2 Timothy 3:16 NIV – “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness.”)
- We acknowledge salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit in the life of every believer. (Ephesians 2:8-9 NIV – “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.”)
- As a ministry, we strive to promote love, compassion, and unity among believers, seeking to spread the message of God’s love and the transformative power of faith, hope, and love to all people, regardless of their background or beliefs. (1 Corinthians 13:13 NIV – “And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.”)
