基本信仰

1.信神是無限完全唯一真神:聖父、聖子、聖靈,三而為一;同位、同權、同榮,永世無疆。

(賽 44:6, 45:5-6;太5:48;申32:4;太3:16–17;太28:19;約壹5:7)


2.信耶穌基督兼有神、人二性,因聖靈感孕,藉童貞女馬利亞而生,死於十架,義者代替不義,為世人的贖罪祭,使凡信者皆因所流之寶血而稱義,死後第三日,按照舊約所預言由死復生,升天,在神右邊為信徒的大祭司,將來必重臨世上,設立國度,親自為王。

(腓2:6–11;來2:14–18;西2:9;太1:18;路1:35;林前15:3–5;約壹2:2;徒13:39;來4:14–15, 9:24–28;太25:31–34;徒1:11)


3.信聖靈是三一神的第三位,受耶穌基督的差遣而居於信徒心中為保惠師,領導信徒進入真理,使世人為罪、為義、為審判,自己責備自己。

(約14:16–17, 16:7–11;林前2:10–12)


4.信全部新舊約聖經是由聖靈之默示而來,顯明神對於人類之一切旨意,是基督徒信仰與行為的唯一準則。

(提後3:16–17;彼後1:20–21)


5.信人原是按照神之形象被造,後因悖逆而墮落,身靈皆須經受死亡之痛苦。一切人類皆有罪性,與神的生命隔絕,只有藉主耶穌代贖之功,方能得救。

(創1:27;羅8:8;約壹2:2;太25:41–46;帖後1:7–10)


6.信神已藉耶穌基督為一切人類成就救贖之工,凡接受者皆由聖靈重生,成為神的兒女。

(多3:5–7;徒2:38;約1:12)


7.信聖靈充滿,乃神對一切信徒的旨意,使信徒藉此成為聖潔,與罪惡及世俗分別為聖,完全順服神旨,過奉獻及服事的生活;此種生活乃重生以後的表現。

(帖前5:23;徒1:8;羅12:1–2;加5:16–25)

8.信耶穌基督的救贖,及其對心靈與肉體疾病的醫治。

(太8:16–17;雅5:13–16)

 

9.信教會是由一切相信耶穌基督的人所組成,已被十架寶血所潔淨,並由聖靈重生。教會負有主所託付的使命,廣傳福音直至地極,並在真道上建立信徒,在社會中彰顯神的愛及公義。

(弗3:6–12;太28:19–20;弗1:22–23;徒2:41–47;來10:25)


10.信義人與惡人之身體皆將復活,義人復活進入永福,惡人復活受審判,進入永刑。

(林前15:20–23;帖後1:7–10)

Doctrinal Statement

1. There is one God, who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

2. Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures. He is now at the right hand of the Majesty on high as our great High Priest. He will come again to establish His kingdom of righteousness and peace.

 

3. The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead, sent to convict the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgement. He regenerates, indwells, guides, sanctifies, teaches, illuminates, imparts spiritual gifts and empowers the believer for service.

 

4. The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.

 

5. Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God, he fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ.  The portion of the impenitent and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment; and that of the believer, in everlasting joy and bliss.

 

6. Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; and those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, justified, sanctified, receive the gift of eternal life and become the children of God.

 

7. It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit and be totally sanctified being separated from sin and the world and being fully dedicated to the will of  God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service. This experience is both a distinct event and a life-long process.

 

8. Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal body. Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil are taught in the Scriptures and are privileges for the Church in this present age.

 

9. The Church consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, and are born again of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Head of the body, the Church, which has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the Gospel to all nations. The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the Gospel, and observance of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord's Supper.

 

10. There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life; for the latter, a resurrection unto judgment.

 

11. The Lord Jesus Christ will come again. His second coming is imminent and will be personal and visible. As the believer's blessed hope this vital truth is an incentive to holy living and faithful service toward the completion of Christ's commission.
