The Christian Police Association is non-denominational. In other words, we have members who are Baptist, Church of England, Methodist, Episcopalians and Presbyterians and from many of the other mainstream traditions. We are also a member of the Evangelical Alliance. What unites us is our belief in the following principles found in the Bible:
That there is one God revealed through the Scriptures as a Trinity of three distinct persons; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
That Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He became a man born of a virgin through the power of the Holy Spirit and that He lived a sinless life on earth.
That in His great love Jesus died for us and for our sins and in so doing suffered the judgement of God on our behalf, that we might be forgiven, be reconciled to God and brought close to Him.
That His physical body was raised from death to life and was witnessed by many; that after His resurrection, He ascended and returned to His Father in Heaven where He reigns with Him and intercedes on behalf of all those who have believed in Him.
That Jesus will return to earth personally as He promised.
That the Holy Spirit is still at work convicting of sin and turning people to a new life in Christ. He helps them to change and live their lives according to God’s will, making them more like Christ.
That the Bible, as originally given, is the inspired Word of God without error and is the only complete authority in all matters of faith and doctrine.
That sin entered the world when man chose to disobey God and please himself. Since then sin has affected the core of humanity, touching every part of our nature and being.
That it is only by God’s grace and mercy that the sinful person is made right with Him through faith in Jesus Christ alone.
That the soul of a person is eternal and that there will be a physical resurrection of the body for everyone who will then be judged by the Lord Jesus Christ. Those who have died having believed and received forgiveness will be raised, and together with those believers who are still alive, will be taken to live with Christ forever. Those who have refused to believe will be condemned from God’s presence forever.
That all Christians have an obligation to demonstrate their true allegiance to Christ by obeying His commands and living lives that please Him
