Johnson University Statement of Faith

Johnson University WorshipWe at Johnson University are aware of the potentially controversial nature of creeds and have no intention of adding to an already divided church. The essence of our beliefs is the old saying, “no creed but Christ.” Therefore, any person who holds to the lordship of Jesus and meets the other admission requirements is welcome at Johnson University. Yet, in order to understand the nature of the University, anyone planning to enroll should know that every trustee, administrator, and teacher holds the following items to be true:

  • There is one true God of the Old and New Testaments.
  • All the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are inspired, and, if one believes and obeys Jesus Christ, such faith and obedience will bring the remission of sins and eternal redemption hereafter.
  • Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, born of the Virgin Mary, without the interposition of man, and He is in the all-inclusive and all-exclusive sense, our Savior, Prophet, Priest, and King.
  • Jesus died on the cross for the whole human race and for all ages, and His blood cleanses from all sins, on the conditions laid down in the New Testament.
  • Jesus was buried in the grave, and He came from the grave alive in the body in which He was buried, triumphant over death and the grave.
  • Jesus gave the Great Commission to the Apostles (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:14-16; Luke 23:45-47; John 20:22-23; Acts 1:8) to embrace all nations and all ages to the end of time.
  • Jesus Christ sent the Holy Spirit down from Heaven to the Apostles through whom the Gospel was unfolded, and men and women are saved according to the conditions laid down and on record in the book of Acts.
  • Faith, repentance, confession of faith in Jesus, baptism (immersion) and prayer are for the remission of past sins, and faith, repentance and confession of sins and prayer are for the remission of the erring Christian’s sins (Acts 8:22).
  • The basis of the Restoration Plea handed down to us by the fathers and the basis of the union of Christendom are found in the New Testament.
  • Jesus Christ will come at the end of the world and will judge all men and all ages according to that which is written in the Sacred Scriptures.
