What We Believe

Essential truth. Our Statement of Faith. These things do not change at Niños de Mexico. This is what we believe, and it’s who we are at the core as a Christian mission.

  • We believe in one God; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
    (Matthew 5:16, 45; 6:1, 4, 8, 9; James 1:17 / John 1:1; 14:9 / Genesis 1:2; John 4:24; 14:16-20; 2 Peter 1:21)
  • We believe in God the all powerful Father, Creator of all things visible and invisible.
    (Genesis 1:1; Acts 17:24-28; Hebrews 11:3)
  • We believe in Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, our only Savior,
    (John 1:14; 1 John 4:9 / John 3:16; 2 Peter 3:18)
    • Who was born Jesus of Nazareth, completely human and completely divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary,
      (Matthew 21:11; John 19:19 / John 1:14; Romans 5:15-17; Colossians 2:9; 1 John 1:1 / Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:26-38)
    • Who suffered and was crucified under the authority of the governor Pilate,
      (Luke 23:1-46)
    • Who died and was buried, and Who resurrected physically from the dead on the third day,
      (Luke 23:44-24:8; John 20:24-29; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8)
    • Who ascended to Heaven and now is seated at the right hand of the Father,
      (Luke 22:69; Acts 1:1-9; Colossians 3:1)
    • and Who will return to the world to judge the living and the dead.
      (Matthew 24:36-42; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:10-11; 10:39-42; 1 Peter 4:5)
  • We believe in the Holy Spirit, Who is an active and operative part of the triune God, and Who lives in each Christian.
    (John 16:5-15; Acts 1:7-8; Romans 8:26-27)
  • We believe in the Bible; God’s Holy Word, the Scriptures. We believe that God inspired the original writings of the Scriptures and those writings are without error.
    (Mark 12:36; John 14:26; 16:23-25; Acts 1:16; 1 Corinthians 2:12-13; 2 Timothy 3:14-16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
    • We accept the Bible as the final authority for all issues of faith and practice.
      (Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 5:18; 24:35; Romans 15:4; Hebrews 4:12)
  • We believe the Bible teaches that man, created by God, sinned deliberately against God and is lost and without any hope apart from Jesus Christ.
    (Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23)
  • We believe the Bible teaches that salvation and the forgiveness of sins is reached only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ.
    (Matthew 26:28; Romans 5:9; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 1 John 1:7)
    • We believe the Bible teaches that one receives the grace of God in expressing his faith in Christ, repenting of sin, confessing Christ, and being immersed (baptized) into Christ.
      (Romans 5:1-2 / Luke 24:45-47; Acts 3:19; 17:30; 2 Peter 3:9 / Matthew 10:32; Romans 10:9; Phillippians 2:11 / 1 John 4:15 / Acts 2:28; Romans 6:1-7; Galatians 3:27; Colossians 2:12; 1 Peter 3:21)
  • We believe the church is the body and bride of Christ, founded on the day of Pentecost and includes all Christians everywhere.
    (Matthew 16:13-18; Acts 2:14-47)
  • We believe the Bible teaches the Elders must exercise the authority over the local congregation.
    (Acts 20:28; Phillippians 1:1; 1 Timothy 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Peter 5:1-4)
