Christians In Crisis Ministry Statement:
Christians In Crisis is a prayer advocacy ministry that prays for the persecuted church worldwide, the people who persecute them and all those needing to come to salvation through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. It is the focus of CIC relating to the Islamic world, that Jesus died for Muslims too. Therefore we do not incite, encourage or condone those who approach the lost in a spirit of vindication or pride. We believe that Jesus died for all of us, that we are all sinners and in need of His grace, mercy and compassion. Though we disagree with Islam in it's doctrine and believe that we are saved by grace, through faith alone in Jesus Christ, moving one to repentance and a changed life, we love Muslims, as we love anyone, be it your friend, neighbor or relative, who is lost and in need of a Savior.
It is with this mission that we believe we should defend the faith, but not at the cost of Christian compassion, mercy and love - God's love demonstrated through His vessels here on earth, to reach out to those of all faiths and to encourage them to come to a place of salvation, personal relationship and transformation through the blood of Jesus, shed for us on the Cross of Calvary and the price that He paid for our salvation.
Islam will not be shaken by attacks on the Quran or on the lifestyle of their Muslim believers, but it will be shaken as Muslims are won to Jesus, recognizing that He is God, that He did die on the cross and that He died for their sins as well as for the sin of all mankind. Let us love all non-believers, but most of all let us pray for their salvation. Let us spend more time in prayer for them than we do criticizing their belief system or lack there of. After all, Islam - I Sincerely Love All Muslims should be our battle cry. Love them enough to pray for them, as well as of those that are of other belief systems who do not recognize God's free gift of salvation through the sacrificial death of the Lord Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary.
Christians In Crisis Ministry urges all believers in Christ Jesus to sincerely show the love of the Lord Jesus Christ to all of mankind by way of unceasing prayers till all have heard of God's gift of salvation and eternal life through belief in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Christians In Crisis Doctrinal Statement:
The Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God to man, the infallible and authoritative rule of faith and conduct (2 Tim 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21; Hebrews 4:12)….
There is only one God eternally existing and revealed Himself in three distinct Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (1 John 5:7; 2 Cor 13:14; 1 Tim 1:17).
The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His death on the cross, His resurrection from the dead and His ascension to the right hand of God the Father making intercession for the redeemed (John 1:1-3; Matt 1:18, 20, 23; 1 Cor 15:3-4).
The only means of salvation is by faith in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ on the cross. That through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Jesus, regeneration takes place with evidence of an inner witness of the Spirit and an outward manifestation of righteous and holy living (Titus 2:11; Romans 8:16; Eph 2:8; Titus 3:5-7).
The sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a life that is separate from that which is evil, and enabled to live a holy and dedicated life unto God (Romans 8:1-8; 12:1-2; 2 Cor 7:1).
The blessed hope – the rapture of the Church, followed by the visible return of Christ with His saints to reign on earth for a thousand years (1 Thess 4:14-17; Rev 20:1-10).
Christians In Crisis Mission Statement:
CIC exists to help spread the Gospel and serves as an advocate and a voice for God's people who are faced with crisis and persecuted due to their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that as members of God's family, the Body of Christ worldwide must respond in assisting and meeting the needs of the other members in Gods family who are less privileged and less fortunate, even as each one labors to help reach the lost with the Gospel. ''If one member suffers, all the members suffer...'' 1 Corinthians 12:26a.
