First Congregational Church of Pomfret

Our Beliefs continued...


We believe man, both male and female, was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death which is separation from God.  All human beings are born with that sinful nature and are in need of God’s saving grace.


We believe in the deity of Christ, in his virgin birth, in his sinless life, in his miracles, in his vicarious and atoning death through his shed blood, in his bodily resurrection, in his ascension to the right hand of the Father and in his personal return in power and glory.


We believe that for salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.  All who are born again of the Holy Spirit by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone are justified and made righteous on the basis of Jesus’ shed blood and thereby receive eternal life as children of God.


We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling power and fullness the Christian is enabled to live a godly life in this present evil world.


We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.


We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in Christ.
