What We Believe
We are an evangelical ministry whose morals, beliefs, and values reflect the conservative theology outlined in the bible.
It's broke. And you can't fix it.
Thankfully, God fixed it for you.
What is "it?" "It" is mankind's ability to have a relationship with God.
God is Holy and to be in His presence and in a relationship with Him requires our being sinless. God created the heavens and earth as well as mankind (Adam and Eve) in perfect holiness. God provided Adam and Eve with everything needed to live for eternity – they would live forever in the fellowship of God. Adam and Eve did not have to earn “it.” “It” was freely given to them without their being required to earn or work for “it.” Then Adam and Eve broke “it.”
God fixed “it” by sending his Son, Jesus Christ, to pay the penalty for sin (death) and fixed “it.” Because Jesus Christ accepted the penalty for sin on our behalf, mankind was granted a second opportunity to restore our ability to have a relationship with God. Mankind has no other pathway to restore the relationship with God.
A gift, any gift, has to be accepted before one actually has possession of the gift. A birthday present that remains unopened and stowed away in a drawer or closet is available for acceptance for the remainder of a person’s life. If the gift is never opened, it is forever lost. Only when the gift is opened does one receive the use and benefit of the gift. Salvation is accepting the gift that fixed “it.”
That’s the Gospel – how God fixed “it.”
Salvation provides for eternal life with God. Obedience to Biblical teachings provides for a healthy Christian life and fellowship with God during our earthly life. Christ beautifully summarized all Biblical teaching in just four (4) verses of the Bible:
“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
These four (4) verses serve as the summation of Comfort Canine For Christ's organizational policies.
