Our Statement of Beliefs

SD WCTU Statement of Beliefs

We believe that the Bible is the word revelation of God. We believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten son of God who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary and is therefore true God and true man.

We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, voluntarily bearing our guilt and suffering as our substitute and that all who believe in Him are now justified by His blood and shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. (Romans 5:9)

We believe in His corporeal resurrection and ascension into heaven, that He is our Priest and Advocate, and that He will return to earth to reign.

Our Stand

The first step to a victorious life is to accept Jesus Christ as personal Savior.

The Bible teaches total abstinence from all alcoholic beverages, tobacco and drugs used for pleasure because they harm the body.

The Bible teaches the sanctity of life. It also teaches the sanctity of sex within the marriage relationship.
