This fellowship recognizes that its basis of faith shall be according to the doctrine of Christ found in II John 9-11, “Whosoever transgresseth and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God.”  The biblically inspired doctrinal basis of faith which lists the seven principles of the doctrine of Christ is found in Hebrews 6:1-2; “Therefore, leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms and laying on of hands, and resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment.” Thus we see that these seven principles include the following:

 1. Repentance from dead works.
 2. Faith in God.
 3. Doctrine of baptisms.
 4. Laying on of hands.
 5. Resurrection of the dead.
 6. Eternal judgment.
7. Going onto perfection.

Obviously in the New Testament Church, there was not uniformity of belief in all matters including, for example, that of circumcision (Acts 15:1.) The apostles did not attempt to resolve differences in this case. Either side was given liberty of conscience in the matter, but neither were permitted to make it an issue. KFI stands for New Testament liberty of conscience, but disapproves of any who would use that liberty to divide the brethren.  (Contact the KFI Office for expanded version)
