What We Believe

The ministry team at FHI is made up of individuals from different local churches from around the Sandpoint area, which are unified in their belief around the basic foundational tenets of the Christian faith set forth in our Statement of Faith.

Freedom House Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and is our final authority in faith and practice.  (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

We believe in one God, Creator of all things, eternally existing in three Persons, equal, yet filling different roles: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Psalm 119:68; Isaiah 45:21-22; Colossians 1:15-17)

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit; born of the virgin Mary; lived a sinless life; was crucified; died; was buried; bodily resurrected; ascended into heaven; and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father. (Galatians 4:4-5; Philippians 2:6-10)

We believe that God made man perfect and when man sinned it corrupted God’s creation. Because of God’s love He sent Jesus to restore mankind to its right condition. (Genesis 1:26-28, 31; 3:1-24; Romans 3:10, 23; Revelation 20:10-15)

We believe in salvation by grace through faith through the death and resurrection of Christ alone for our sins. (Romans 5:8-10; 6:23; 10:9-10, 13)

We believe that the Holy Spirit is present in the lives of believers to guide them and lead them into a life of righteousness, bearing the fruit of the Spirit, and giving gifts to empower believers to be like Christ. (John 15:26-27; 1 Corinthians 12; Galatians 5:22-26)
