Our Statement of Faith
I believe that the Bible is the true and trustworthy Word of God and it therefore serves as the solid foundation for Campfire Bible Camp.
I believe that the Trinity, which is made up of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, is at the same time three and one.
I believe that God created the world, including all that exists in the heavens and on earth, and that man was created in His image.
I believe that we are all conceived and born in the original sin that we have inherited from the first humans, Adam and Eve, and that we also commit actual sins each and every day. Sin has separated humanity from God.
I believe that God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, into the world, born of a virgin named Mary, to redeem humanity from the power of sin.
I believe that Jesus Christ sacrificed Himself on the cross to rescue us from the power of sin. Christ’s death and resurrection conquered sin and restored the relationship between humanity and God, which we were powerless to do on our own.
I believe that Christ’s death brought about God’s free gift of salvation, a display of His wonderful mercy and grace. Salvation is offered to all who believe in their heart and confess with their mouth that Jesus is their Saviour. This faith is brought about by the work of the Holy Spirit.
I believe that Christ will return one day to judge the people of the earth and the righteous will go to live with Him in heaven, while the wicked will live eternally outside of God’s presence in hell.
I believe that all of God’s people are called to be His ambassadors in this world in every area of their daily lives, including their role at Campfire. As His ambassadors, we are to share the Gospel through both words and deeds by humbly serving others as a reflection of Christ’s love.
I believe that it is important to connect time spent at Campfire with participation in a local, faithful church. Staff and volunteers will be active members of their local congregations and campers will be encouraged to grow in their faith by joining or reconnecting with a local congregation. Campers who already attend church regularly will be encouraged to begin or continue in active church membership.
