Our Core Beliefs
At Wycliffe Associates, God’s Word is central to everything we do. Our Core Beliefs are drawn from the teachings of the Holy Bible. In that spirit, we adhere to the following truths:
- The divine inspiration and consequent authority of the whole canonical Scriptures.
- The doctrine of the Trinity.
- The fall of man, his consequent moral depravity, and his need for regeneration.
- The atonement through the substitutionary death of Christ.
- The doctrine of justification by faith.
- The resurrection of the body, in the case of the just and the unjust.
- The eternal life of the saved and the eternal punishment of the lost.
Involving people in the advancement of Bible translation.
A Bible in every language by 2025.
