The beliefs of the Heart of Jubilee are expressed in its Declaration of Faith in accordance with the Foursquare Church and its founder, Aimee Semple McPherson. We have adopted McPherson’s shorter, more concise creedal statement as our guide.
WE BELIEVE in the verbal inspiration of the Bible, the doctrine of the Trinity, and the deity of Jesus Christ.
WE BELIEVE that human beings were created in the image of God but, because of the Fall, are naturally depraved and sinful.
WE BELIEVE in the substitutionary atonement accomplished by the death of Christ. The church teaches that salvation is by grace through faith and not by good works.
WE BELIEVE that believers are justified by faith and are born again upon repentance and acceptance of Christ as Lord and King.
WE BELIEVE, consistent with a belief in human free will, that it is possible for a believer to backslide or commit apostasy.
WE BELIEVE that sanctification is a continual process of spiritual growth.
WE BELIEVE that Christian perfection and holiness can be attained through surrender and consecration to God. This spiritual growth is promoted by Bible study and prayer.
WE BELIEVE in the baptism with the Holy Spirit as an event separate from conversion, which empowers the individual and the wider church to fulfill the church’s mission of evangelization, and we expect Spirit baptism to be received in the same manner as recorded in the Book of Acts, namely that the believer will speak in tongues.
WE BELIEVE the evidence of the Spirit-filled life is the Fruit of the Spirit, and we believe that spiritual gifts continue to operate for the edification of the church.
WE BELIEVE that divine healing is a part of Christ’s atonement. It teaches that the sick can be healed in response to prayer.
WE BELIEVE and anticipate the premillennial return of Christ to earth.
WE BELIEVE that there will be a future, final judgment where the righteous will receive everlasting life and the wicked everlasting punishment. The Heart of Jubilee observes the believer’s baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper or Holy Communion as ordinances. Open communion is practiced. Anointing of the sick and tithing are also practiced.
