[Carolina Hope merged with Nightlight Christian Adoptions in April 2009. Although these are not the official position statements of Nightlight Christian Adoptions, they are consistent with Nightlight's mission and beliefs.]
As God creates His family through adoption, Carolina Hope seeks to create families through international adoptions as well as provide a godly model through humanitarian assistance to orphans.
Statement of Faith:
The Bible is the inspired and inerrant written word of God. It is the only infallible rule for faith and practice.
There is one true God, eternally existing in three equally divine persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Though man was created in the image of the Triune God, he corrupted that image by sinning against God through Satan's temptation. As a result, man is alienated from God and eternally condemned—apart from God's gracious work of redemption.
The eternal Son became man—fully God and fully man in one Person—was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died an atoning death at the cross, was resurrected, ascended to the Father's right hand, and will return personally, bodily, and gloriously.
All humanity is sinful and needs to be justified by grace through faith in Jesus alone and adopted into God's family.
