What do we believe?
At the core of our CFC leadership team's beliefs are the Apostles' Creed (c. AD 180) and the Nicene Creed (c. AD 325). We are evangelical in doctrine and practice, and thus we hold to the following:
1. We believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God.
2. We believe that there is one eternal God existing as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
3. We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He took upon Himself human nature, and through His death on the cross made provision for the redemption of men from sin. He was raised from the dead with a glorified body, ascended into heaven, and is now exalted at the right hand of God. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to complete His redemptive mission.
4. We believe that the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for Salvation.
5. We believe that Christians are able to live God-honoring lives only through the power of the Holy Spirit.
6. We believe that both the saved and the lost will one day be raised from the dead; the saved to
life eternal and the lost to eternal punishment.
7. We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
CFC welcomes diversity and stands in solidarity with all faculty members who self-identify with the simple label "Christian." While we may not endorse every participant's specific beliefs or lifestyle, we believe that broad participation only enhances the conversations and activities of Clemson Faculty Commons.
