Doctrinal Statement

WISE is a Bible College dedicated to helping the church fulfill its mission of evangelizing the lost and edifying the saved. It seeks to do this by training leaders for the church. Therefore, WISE is not a substitute for the church, but an organization of believers who are seeking to help the church accomplish its purpose.

The faculty of WISE affirms its belief in the following items of doctrine:

  • God the Father is the creator of all things, the giver and sustainer of life, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the judge of all men.
  • Jesus is the Son of God, the eternal Word who became flesh, the second person of the Trinity. He is the Savior of the world who by His atoning death on the cross provided the basis for our salvation. He was born of a virgin, was raised from the dead by the power of God, and ascended into heaven where He now reigns at the right hand of God.
  • The Holy Spirit is a personality, the third person of the Trinity along with the Father and the Son, and that he indwells the church today, gifting and empowering it to accomplish its work in the world.
  • Salvation from sin is by the grace of God alone, not human works, and is given as a gift to those who put their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. People respond to God's grace through belief in Christ and confession of Him as Lord, repentance from sin, and baptism into Christ for the forgiveness of sins and the reception of the gift of the Holy Spirit.
  • The Lord's Supper should be observed each Lord's Day when the church gathers together for worship, following the example of the apostolic church.
  • Christ will return again personally to judge the living and the dead, and that those who belong to Him will be with Him forever in heaven, while those who have not believed and obeyed the gospel will be separated from Him eternally in hell.
  • The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the completely authoritative source of our doctrine and practice as believers, and that it is a complete and final revelation of God's will for our lives.

The foregoing points are not intended to function as a creedal statement for the church, but as a summation of what we at WISE believe and teach.
