Statement of Faith
We believe that God is the Eternal king. He is an infinite, unchangeable Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, goodness, justice, power and love. From all eternity He exists as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe that God’s kingdom is everlasting. From His throne, through His Son, His eternal Word, God created, upholds and governs all that exists.
We believe that God created mankind in His image, male and female, for relationship with Himself and to govern the earth. Under the temptation of Satan, our original parents fell from grace, bringing sin, sickness and God’s judgment of death to the earth.
We believe that Satan rebelled against God. He was cast out of God’s presence and, as a usurper of God’s rule, established a counter‐kingdom of darkness and evil on the earth.
We believe that God did not abandon His rule over the earth which He continues to uphold by His providence. In order to bring redemption, God established covenants which revealed His grace to sinful people.
Conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, as fully God and fully human in one person, Jesus is humanity as God intended us to be. He was anointed as God’s Messiah and empowered by the Holy Spirit, inaugurating God’s kingdom reign on earth.
After dying for the sins of the world, Jesus was raised from the dead on the third day. In His sinless, perfect life Jesus met the demands of the law and in His atoning death on the cross He took God’s judgment for sin which we deserve as law‐breakers. As God’s Son, He is the eternal Messiah‐King, advancing God’s reign throughout every generation and throughout the whole earth today.
We believe that the Holy Spirit was poured out on the Church at Pentecost in power, baptizing believers into the Body of Christ and releasing the gifts of the Spirit to them. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is our abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide. We believe in the filling or the empowering of the Holy Spirit, often a conscious experience, for ministry today.
We believe that the Holy Spirit inspired the human authors of Holy Scripture so that the Bible is without error in the original manuscripts. We receive the sixty‐six books of the Old and New Testaments as our final, absolute authority, the only infallible rule of faith and practice.
We believe in the one, holy, universal Church. All who repent of their sins and confess Jesus as Lord and Savior are regenerated by the Holy Spirit and form the living Body of Christ, of which He is the head and of which we are all members.
while these are the beliefs of Llama Publishing, we do not require that all contributors to our books or all authors of books we publish abide by these beliefs in full. Rather, an agreement to the Apostle's Creed is sufficient:
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
