Our Beliefs

We Believe

There is one God, three persons of one substance; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The Lord Jesus Christ, Who was both fully God and fully man, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered and died on a cross, was resurrected after the third day, and ascended to heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father interceding on behalf of all repentant sinners.

The Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross as a substitutionary atonement so that, by faith in His shed blood, we are given salvation.

The personal and physical return of Jesus Christ to receive His believers into eternal life.

The Holy Spirit–Who proceeds from the Father–lives within us and gives us the power to live a holy life.

The Bible in its original languages is the plenary, verbal, inspired Word of God, and is infallible and without error.

Man was created in God’s image, but because of Adam’s sin incurred physical and spiritual death–that is, death in the body and eternal separation from God--and such sin is upon all men.

Man was created wonderfully and immutably as male and female, and these two distinct, complementary sexes together reflect the image and nature of the eternal Godhead.

Marriage was created for one man and one woman for life, reflecting the uniquely reflecting Christ’s relationship with His Church. So sexual intimacy must occur only between a man and a woman, married to each other, and it is not to be shared with any outside that covenant. As a result, we believe that any form of sexual immorality is sinful and offensive to God.

God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ.

Every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with the beliefs of Indian Hills Camp Staff or the Scriptures.

Since all human life created in God’s image, it is sacred and of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition–from conception until death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life.
