Statement of Faith

Great State Alliance
Tipping Point Academy

Tipping Point Academy and the ministries of Great State Alliance are based on the following statement of faith:

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God concerning all truth, morality, and just human conduct.
  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that humankind was created in the image of God to know and enjoy Him forever, yet willfully sinned by rejecting the Lordship of God. Because of this, creation experiences the effects and consequences of sin.
  • We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and that He is now alive, ruling and reigning at the right hand of the Father.
  • We believe that anyone can be saved from sin by grace only, through faith only in the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, whose indwelling enables the Christian to live a godly life.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, that the Church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ and finds her visible, yet imperfect, expression in local congregations.
  • We believe Jesus Christ will come again to the earth— personally, visibly, and bodily—to judge the living and the dead and to consummate history and the eternal plan of God. Rev. 22:20
  • We believe that every person who genuinely comes to faith in Jesus Christ will be with Him for eternity. He promises that He will never cast them out and will raise up every person who has believed in Him on the last day. John 6:37-40, John 10:27-29
  • We believe in the ministry of evangelism sharing and proclaiming the message of salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that God created man and woman as unique biological persons made to complete each other, that marriage is exclusively the union of one genetic male and one genetic female. God instituted marriage as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society.
  • We believe God endows all human life with inherent dignity, that human life is sacred from conception to its natural end and must be respected and protected from conception to its natural end. Psalm 139:13; Isaiah 49:1; Jeremiah 1:5; Matthew 22:37- 39; Romans 12:20-21; Galatians 6:10.
  • We believe that our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who we have received from God. We are not our own, but bought at a price, therefore, it is our responsibility and spiritual worship to glorify God with our bodies. 1 Corinthians 6:15-20, 1 Corinthians 3:16-17, Romans 12:1
  • We believe that people from every nation, tribe, people and language, are called to salvation and service to God and that as a faith community, we are called to racial inclusion and unity. Revelation 7:9
