The Purity Coach Statement of Faith

What We Believe

Our Vision

God's men living in constant victory over lust, pornography, and masturbation through a dynamic and growing relationship with Christ.

Our Mission

To equip and train men to overcome porn addiction in as little as 60-90 days.

We do this by helpin men develop a hunger to live in purity and a passion for God's Word, so they can live out the practical answers from Scripture that make it all possible.

The Intended Result

 Men living in purity, integrity and godliness - a life of pure victory.

 Men who are consistently living out God's standards of purity.

 Men stepping up in their marriages - cherishing and honoring their wife.

 Men taking the lead in their families - being the dad God intended them to be.

 Men taking the lead in their churches - serving God, not self; moving forward the Kingdom of God.

 Men standing in the gap for purity and godliness in their community.

Our Belief

Scripture: The 66 books of the Old and New Testament alone are, in the original text, the infallible, inerrant, verbally inspired, Holy word of God. Among the many principles the Bible teaches,God's Word outlines a clear pattern for Biblical manhood, including purity, integrity and godlinessAll Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of god may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. II Timothy 3:16

God: There is only one God. He is creator of Heaven and earth, infinite, eternal, almighty, infallible unchangeable, holy and just. God eternally exists in one essence and three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is to have preeminence in every aspect of our life. “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:8

Man: All of humanity was created in God’s image to be in fellowship with Him and to bring Him praise. Initially innocent and having free will, man succumbed to temptation and sinned, thereby separating himself from a right relationship with God. Now, because of this sin, man is separated from God, dead in his trespasses and sin, in need of salvation. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23

Salvation: Only those who receive Jesus Christ on the condition of faith alone, apart from good works, are born again of the Holy Spirit, are justified once and for all, and become children of God. Those who are saved remain eternally secure in God’s everlasting blessedness, and those who do not believe are not saved and ultimately suffer an eternal, conscious punishment of the lost. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8

Christ: Jesus Christ, the second person of the Trinity, exists eternally as God. He took upon himself the nature of man, being conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary. He is God and man, having two distinct natures co-joined in one person. Jesus (who as God knew no sin) became sin for us, dying on the cross as a representative, substitutionary sacrifice for the sins of every human being. Jesus literally and physically arose from the dead in the same body in which he lived and died. He ascended in the same glorified physical body in which he arose, and is now seated at the right hand of His Father. Jesus' personal return to earth for His redeemed ones is imminent. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. Romans 3:22

Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit, the third person of the Godhead, convicts men of sin. He regenerates, indwells, baptizes, seals and sets believers apart to a Holy life. He is the ultimate Teacher of the Word of God and He empowers believers day by day. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, Ephesians 1:13b

Church: The universal Church is composed of those who have been redeemed and washed in Christ’s blood, regenerated and sealed by the Holy Spirit. Those in the Church are saved to worship, serve God, and to spread the good news of His provision of salvation. After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church – for we are members of his body. Ephesians 5:29-30
