  • What does Upward Sports believe?
    The Upward Sports Program was founded on the following beliefs:
    • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, authoritative, Word of God.
    • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons – the 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, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
    • We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
    • 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 unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal punishment.
    • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
    Each church partner conducting an Upward Sports League or Camp has agreed to this same set of beliefs which can also be referred to as a Statement of Faith.
