West Florida Foster Care Services is founded upon the Bible, which reveals the triune God.
Members of the Board and staff indicate their personal agreement with West Florida Foster Care Services Statement of Faith.
WEST FLORIDA FOSTER CARE SERVICES STATEMENT OF FAITH
“The God of the Bible is the one eternal God, Creator and Lord of the world, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who governs all things according to the purpose of His will.”
“We affirm the divine inspiration, truthfulness and authority of both Old and New Testament Scriptures in their entirety as the only written Word of God, without error in all that it affirms…”
“We affirm that there is only one Savior and only one gospel… Jesus Christ, being himself the only God-man, who gave himself as the only ransom for sinners…There is no other name by which we must be saved.”
“We affirm that God is both the Creator and the Judge of all. We, therefore, should share His concern for justice and reconciliation throughout human society and for the liberation of men and women from every kind of oppression. Because men and women are made in the image of God, every person, regardless of race, religion, color, culture, class, sex or age, has an intrinsic dignity because of which he or she should be respected and served, not exploited.”
Excerpted from Lausanne Covenant
We believe that God made man and woman in His image and likeness and that God instituted marriage as a life-long covenant between one man and one woman.
We believe that we are all sinners, able to be redeemed and restored by grace through repentance and belief in Christ Jesus alone. As Christians, we are called to a life of faith into the Christian church and its ongoing ministry until that mission is completed by the coming of the Kingdom in its fullness. The Holy Spirit empowers us to fulfill that calling.
We, along with all followers of Christ, believe and wait expectantly for the triumphant return of Jesus Christ our King. At that time, Jesus Christ will gather us to Himself as one complete family and will fully enhance the lives of His children as citizens of His kingdom, sons, and daughters in our Father’s house.
