Our Belief 信仰宣言

1 有 一神,祂是無限完全的,以聖父、聖子、聖靈三位一體的方式永遠存在。( 申命記 6:4; 馬太福音 5:48; 馬太福音 28:19 )
2 耶穌基督是真正的神也是真正的人,祂是藉著聖靈感孕,由童貞女馬利亞所生。祂是義的代替不義的,死在十字架上,成為代贖祭,叫一切信祂的人因著祂所流的血而得稱義。祂照聖經所載,從死裏復活。祂現今在至高者右邊作我們的大祭司。祂將要再來設立祂公義與平安的國度。( 腓立比書 2:6-11; 路加福音 1:36-38; 彼得前書 3:18; 希伯來書 2:9; 羅馬書 5:9; 使徒行傳 2:23-24; 希伯來書 8:1; 馬太福音 26:64 )
3 聖靈是一神聖的位格,奉差遣住在信徒心內,指引、教導、加力量給他們;又叫世人為罪、為義、為審判自責。( 約翰福音 14:15-18; 約翰福音 16:13; 使徒行傳 1:8; 約翰福音 16:7-11 )
4 新舊約全書原卷全無錯誤,逐字逐句為神所默示,是神救贖人類的旨意之完整啟示,是神所定給基督徒信仰與行為的唯一準則。(彼得後書 1:20-21; 提摩太後書 3:15-16 )
5 人類始祖是照著神的形像和樣式被造的,他因為違背神而墮落,招致身體與靈魂的死亡。所有的人帶著罪性而出生,與神的生命隔絕,唯一的救法乃是藉著主耶穌基督的救贖大功。凡不悔改與不相信的人的結局,就是落在永遠有感受的痛苦中 ; 凡相信的人必承受永遠的福樂。(創世記 1:27; 羅馬書 3:23; 哥林多前書 15:20-23; 啟示錄 21:8; 啟示錄 21:1-4 )
6 耶穌基督已經為人類預備了救恩;凡悔改、相信耶穌基督的人得蒙聖靈重生,接受永遠生命的恩賜,並成為神的兒女。(提多書 3:4-7 )
7 每 一位信徒應被聖靈充滿,全然成聖,從世界及罪惡中分別出來,並完全獻上自己遵行神旨,因而得著能力過聖潔的生活及有效地事奉,這是神的旨意。這是信徒悔改以後生命鍛鍊的轉機與長進的經驗。(帖撒羅尼迦前書 5:23; 使徒行傳 1:8; 羅馬書 6:1-14 )
8 主耶穌基督的救贖大功,包括身體可以得到醫治。為病人抹油及祈禱是聖經的教導,也是教會在這現今時代中的權利。(馬太福音 8:16-17; 雅各書 5:13-16 )
9 教會由一切信靠主耶穌基督,蒙祂寶血救贖,蒙聖靈重生之人所組成。教會以基督為元首,並從祂接受往普天下作見證,向萬邦傳福音的職事。各地方之教會(堂會)是當地基督徒聯合在一起的一個團體,其目的是為了崇拜神、藉神的道得蒙造就、禱告、團契、傳揚福音、施行浸禮與聖餐。(以弗所書 1:22-23; 馬太福音 28:19-20; 使徒行傳 2:41-47 )
10 義人與不義的人都將有身體的復活;義人復活得生;不義的人復活被定罪。(哥林多前書 15:20-23; 約翰福音 5:28-29 )
11 主耶穌基督的第二次再來是隨時會發生的,而且這將是親身的、可見的、且發生在千禧年以前。這是信徒有福的盼望,也是激勵信徒過聖潔生活及忠心事奉的重要真理。(希伯來書 10:37; 路加福音 21:27; 提多書 2:11-14 )

 

 

 

1 There is one God, who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 5:48, Matthew 28:19)
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.( Philippians 2:6-11, Luke 1:36-38, 1 Peter 3:18, Hebrews 2:9, Romans 5:9, Acts 2:23,24, Hebrews 8:1, Matthew 26:64)
3 The Holy Spirit is a divine person, sent to indwell, guide, teach, empower the believer, and convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. (John 14:15-18, John 16:13, Acts 1:8, John 16:7-11)
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. ( ll Peter 1:20-21, Il Timothv 3:15-16)
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 sepa rated 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.( Genesis 1:27, Romans 3:23, Corinthians 15:20-23, Revelation 21:8, Revelation 21:1-4)
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, receive the gift of eternal life, and become the children of God.(Titus 3:4-7)
7 It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit and be sanctified wholly, being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service. This is both a crisis and a progressive experience wrought in the life of the believer subsequent to conversion.(1 Thessalonians 5:23, Acts 1:8, Romans 6:1-14)
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. (Matthew 8:16-17, James 5:13-16)
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. (Ephesians 1:22-23, Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 2:41-47)
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. (1 Corinthians 15:20-23, John 5:28-29)
11 The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent and will be personal, visible, and premillenial. This is the believer’ s blessed hope and is a vital truth which is an incentive to holy living and faithful service. ( Hebrews 10:37,Luke 21:27, Titus 2:11-14)
