Statement of Faith
Reach the Unreached Ministries is strictly non denominational and seeks to co-operate with all true born again Christians in the spread of the gospel, particularly to unreached tribes, ethnic groups and regions of the world. We set out here below a statement of our fundamental beliefs. RTU's founder, Richard Gunning, is a member of the Evangelical Alliance in the UK.
1. The Godhead
We believe the Biblical revelation of one sovereign, triune God, creator of the heavens and the earth, and revealed in Scripture as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
2. The Bible
We believe in the divine inspiration and infallibility of Holy Scripture as originally given and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
We believe that God originally created man in His own image to enjoy eternal life together with Him but that man sinned and fell and that all mankind is now sinful by nature and in a totally lost estate, making necessary the new birth.
4. The Lord Jesus Christ
We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. We believe in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miraculous ministry, His atoning death on the cross, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, His abiding intercession, His exaltation at the right hand of the Father and His personal return in power and great glory.
5. The Holy Spirit
We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit and in His present work to bring conviction to sinners, sanctifying the believer and in giving gifts to the Church.
We believe that salvation and forgiveness of sins is by faith in the atoning sacrifice and shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross and His subsequent resurrection from the dead.
7. The Ordinances
We believe in baptism by immersion for repentant believers. We believe in regular observance of the Lord's Supper. We believe in ministering to the sick for divine healing.
8. The Church
We believe in one holy universal church, which is the body of Christ to which all true believers belong.
9. The Great Commission
We believe in the vital necessity of the Church fulfilling Christ's great commission to go into the entire world and preach the gospel to all nations.
10. The Hereafter
We believe in eternal life for the believer in Jesus Christ and in eternal judgement of the unbeliever in the lake of fire.
