Statement of Faith

  1. We believe the Bible to be the authoritative Word of God.
  2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  3. We believe in the deity and humanity of 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, in His present rule as Head of the Church and in His personal return in power and glory.
  4. We believe that salvation is based on the sacrifice of Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
  5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  6. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
  7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, with equality across racial, gender, and class differences.

History and Current Activities

Until now, there have been a few neurologists who have been doing neurological missions across the globe, but no centralized place to discuss these activities with other neurologists, nor a clear means to make available opportunities for other neurologists to join in the work.  This section aims to make this platform available and effective.

Upcoming Events

There are no upcoming Neurology Section events at this time.
