Statement of Faith

The Forgotten Initiative (TFI) believes that Jesus is the ultimate source of hope and healing. We want to see people everywhere supporting the foster care community and experiencing Jesus together! 

We believe:

The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God, our supreme authority and is fully trustworthy for faith and conduct. 2 Timothy 3:16-17Proverbs 30:5

There is one eternal God, the Creator of all things, who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit and He is the sustainer, ruler, redeemer and judge of the world. Isaiah 45:5-7Colossians 1:15-18Matthew 28:18-20

Jesus Christ, the Son of God was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, fully human and fully divine, and lived a sinless life. Matthew 1:18Philippians 2:5-81 Peter 2:21-23

God is the creator of all life, including the unborn; all life is precious in His sight. Psalm 139:13-14Jeremiah 1:5

All people, made male and female in God’s image, have dignity, worth and value because of Him, and yet are corrupted by sin, which incurs divine wrath and judgment, separating mankind from God. Genesis 1:27Romans 3:9-20

The atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross, dying in our place, shedding His blood and rising again from the grave is the hope of the world. Man is justified by the grace of God through faith in the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ alone. Romans 3:24-251 Peter 2:24Ephesians 2:8-9

The Holy Spirit resides in the hearts of believers who have come to Him in repentance and found salvation in Jesus through faith and is evidenced by a spiritual rebirth, reconciliation with God and obedience to God’s word. Romans 8:9John 16:13-14

God designed marriage to be between a man and a woman united in a lifelong union and calls believers to sexual purity both in and outside of marriage. Genesis 2:22-24Mark 10:6-91 Thessalonians 4:3-8

The Church, the body of Christ both local and universal, is given life by the Spirit and endowed with the Spirit’s gifts to worship God and proclaim the gospel, promoting justice and love. Acts 1:8Romans 12:4-51 Peter 4:7-11

The personal and visible return of Jesus Christ is to fulfill the purposes of God, who will raise all people to judgement, bring eternal life to the redeemed and eternal condemnation to the lost, and establish a new heaven and new earth. Acts 1:10-11Revelation 20:12-15Revelation 21:1-4

Core Values

Honor God

“Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.”
