Doctrinal Statement

When applying for a ministry position, many churches or organizations will request that you send a doctrinal statement along with your resume and other application materials. The doctrinal statement should be typed on a separate page dedicated for this purpose. The statement should be only one page long (front and back is acceptable) and written in crisp, clear, definitive terms. It must cover the following:

  • God and Trinity
  • Inspiration and Authority of Scripture
  • Person and Work of Jesus Christ
  • Person and Work of the Holy Spirit
  • Man, Sin, and Salvation
  • Church (include ordinances of baptism and communion)
  • Satan and Angels
  • Last Things
