Meier Clinics' Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, authoritative Word of God, inerrant in its original languages.
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, and in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood. We also believe in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return to earth some day to rule over the earth.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in Christ as one's Savior.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved to the resurrection of eternal life and they that are lost to the resurrection of eternal judgment.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the sanctity of life. We welcome with open and loving arms all who have had or contributed to abortions, not only to experience God’s forgiveness, but also to grieve the resulting losses and, with God’s help, to forgive oneself.
We believe in the importance of marriage and, as therapists, do all we can to preserve marriages, encouraging couples to work together to bring about restoration. However, we recognize the Bible permits divorce and remarriage for either adultery (Matthew 5:31) or abandonment (I Corinthians 7:15). We welcome all who have divorced or have been divorced as they seek psychological healing and a new beginning.
We believe that all psychological principles should be thoroughly evaluated through the grid of Scripture and that Scripture always holds the final authority. We do not harbor any beliefs or practice any therapeutic techniques that we are convicted would violate the principles of Scripture.
