What does GCJ believe about REPENTANCE? Essentially, we believe the same as GCI does, as summarized in their statement, which is posted below:
- Repentance toward God is a change of mind and attitude in response to the grace of God prompted by the Holy Spirit and grounded in the Word of God. It includes awareness of personal sinfulness and trust in and allegiance to Jesus Christ through whom all humanity has been reconciled to God and accompanies a new life sanctified by the Holy Spirit through faith in Jesus Christ.
Our belief is based on a number of passages in the Bible, including the ones listed below:
- (Acts 2:38; 2 Corinthians 5:18-19; Romans 2:4; 10:17; Colossians 1:19-20; Romans 12:2)
