In one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (John 14: 16-17, Matthew 28:19)
Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin and is wholly God and wholly Man (Matthew 1: 18-23)
The Scriptures of Old and New Testaments to be verbally inspired by God, inerrant in the original writings and of supreme and final authority in faith and life (2 Peter 1:20-21, 2 Timothy 3:16-17)
We were created in the image of God; that we have sinned, incurring both physical and spiritual death; and that all humans are born in sin and this sinful nature is the origin of all sinful acts in thought, word and deed (Genesis 1:26; Romans 5:12; Isaiah 59:2; Romans 6:23; Romans 3:23)
The Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; that all who believe in Him are justified by His shed blood (Romans 8:9)
All who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit, and thereby become children of God (John 1:12, Romans 8:9)
In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit: illuminating, regenerating, indwelling and sanctifying the believer. (Romans 8:14-16, John 16:13, 2 Thessalonians 2:13)
We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female, and that these two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God (Genesis 1:26-27).
We believe that God created marriage to be exclusively the union of one man and one woman, and that intimate sexual activity is to occur exclusively within that union (Genesis 2:18-25, Matthew 19:1-9, Ephesians 5:22-33, Romans 1:18-32, Hebrews 13:4).
In the bodily resurrection of Christ and His ascension to Heaven and in His present work as High Priest and Advocate (1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Hebrews 4:14-16)
In the bodily resurrection of the just to everlasting life, and the unjust to everlasting punishment (John 3:36, Acts 24:15, Revelation 20:15, Romans 6:23)
We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sins, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ (I John 1:9; Ephesians 2:8-9)
In the personal return of Jesus Christ in power
and glory (Acts 1:11, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)
Cedarbrook Camp Southern California serves many denominations and individual churches and has purposely limited its doctrinal statement to the basic tenets of the faith. All volunteers will be required to read and sign an agreement to abide by this Statement of Faith.
Since many denominational groups are involved in the Cedarbrook Camp programs, staff members are asked not to promote or practice denominational distinctives which are not found in the Cedarbrook Camp Statement of Faith. We encourage the unity we find through the Holy Spirit by adhering to the basic beliefs we hold in common.
All Cedarbrook Camp Southern California's Christian summer camp board and staff members serving in any capacity shall be those who are committed to Jesus Christ and His service, and seek to manifest the kind of life expressed in Romans 12:10-12.
“Be devoted to one another with brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer.”
