Core Values

Statement of Faith

Sequoia Ministries International bases its work on the following core beliefs...

  1. The Bible is the inspired, infallible, and only authoritative Word of God.
  2. There is one God who exists eternally in three Persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  3. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, that He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, and atoned for sin through His shed blood and death. He was bodily resurrected from the dead, He ascended to the right hand of God the Father, He now acts as our mediator and advocate, and He will personally return in power and glory.
  4. Salvation of lost and sinful man comes through understanding, repentance of sin and personally entrusting in Christ as Lord and Savior. This results in regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
  5. The Holy Spirit indwells all true believers and enables them to live a godly life.
  6. Both the saved and the lost will be resurrected from the dead; the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and the lost unto the resurrection of condemnation and eternal punishment.
  7. There is spiritual unity of all true believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and all are members of His body, the Church.
  8. The ministry of evangelism is a responsibility of both the church and each Christian.
  9. Christians must dedicate themselves to holy Christian living, service of the Lord and His daily authority over their lives.
  10. In matters of daily living, we must have concern for the hurts and needs of our fellowmen.
