Our Beliefs

信仰的基础

我们的圣经,包括旧约和新约,是实行的最高权威和信仰原则,同时这基本真理的准则也是我们团契的基础。

1)圣经
我们完全确信圣经是神所默示,就是神向人启示的道,它超越了人的良知和理智而不违背理智(提后315-17,彼前22,来412)。

2)我们敬拜独一真神,曾显明祂是自有永有,自示“我是”,即那自有的。
独一真神更显明祂;父,子,圣灵。父,子和圣灵是三个位格於一体的神。因此我们可以合宜的说,我们独一的神是三而一, 一而三的神,这三位一体的神,没有那一位在前,或那一位在后没有那一位最大,或最小,但是三位一体是融合且永恒的。

(申64,可1229,西4310-11,太2819,路322,林后3141416-17,林前124,约翰一书13)。

3)神的儿子 - 耶稣基督。

我们相信的主耶稣基督是道成肉身的耶稣基督,是神的儿子,是神也是完全的人。按祂永在神性论而言,祂是天父的独生子。按祂的人性论而言,祂是人的儿子,有血,有肉,所以我们肯定主耶稣按祂永在的神性论,祂是父神的独生子和道成肉身是耶稣的虚已。(约翰11418316,马太123,约翰一书318,来73)。

4)圣灵
我们相信圣灵,与父神和子一样是独特的,但在本质上与父与子都是一样的,圣灵是天父应许给所有的信徒,是子从父那里差来的。(约翰1526,徒238-39,罗89,徒166-7)。

5)灵洗
我们确信灵洗赐能力是为基督作见证,灵洗给予恩赐的功用是在教会事工的运作,和宣讲主耶稣的福音直到地极(路加249,徒14-8,林前121-31)。这种经历是独特的,是灵洗随之而来的重生经历。(徒1044-46157-9192-6)。

6)人的堕落与救赎
我们确信被造的人;男,女是神按神自己的形象而造的,原本是良好与正直的,但人却因自己的过犯堕落。人得救赎的唯一希望,乃是在神的儿子耶稣基督里。(创126-3131-7,罗512-21)。

7)人的救恩
我们确信救恩唯独在神儿子主耶稣基督里,我们证明救赎是在基督里;藉着信,凭耶稣的宝血神给世人的安慰就显明出来。我们得救本乎恩,也因着信,这应不出於行为,乃是神所赐的。(弗28-9),这是人向神悔改和藉着信转向主耶稣基督,我们得以进入永恒的生命,这就是神的后嗣。

(提多书21135-7,罗1013-15,路加2447)。

8)救恩的证据

我们确信救恩的证据或悔改的果子:
内在证据:圣灵在信徒的内心中是直接的印证(罗816
外在证据:信徒在众人面前必须过正义和圣洁的生活(弗424)。

9)教会
本地或世界的教会,都是基督的身体,是神藉着圣灵居住的所在和蒙神特派为要完成教会的伟大使命,所以人因圣灵而生的每一个信徒,都是神的教会的基本会员。(弗122-2344-13,林前316619,来1223,彼前124-5)。

10) 洗礼
凡是真实悔改,内心确信耶稣为救主者,应遵守圣经的教训举行与基督同埋死,同活的浸礼,一举一动有新生的样式(太2819,徒1047-482021,罗64,来1022

11) 圣餐
经念主耶稣基督在十字架上的大作为,也是表明我们与基督的性情有分。(彼得后14)。

12) 论末世
我们相信主耶稣基督再来时,是从天而降,到那时,死的必要先复活,祂必会审判一切活物和死的。凡是名字有记录在生命册上的人,就会进入新天新地,而名字没有记录在生命册上的人则要被定罪,永扔在火湖里。(帖前416-17,罗823提多书213,林前1551-52,启示录19-202010-15)。

Fundamentals of Faith

We hold the Bible, both the Old and New Testament, as the final authority and rule of faith and practice. Hence, the statement of Fundamental Truth is intended as a basis of fellowship among us.

1)      The Bible      
We affirm the full inerrancy and inspiration of the Bible. It is a revelation from God to man and superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason.
(2 Tim. 3:15-17, 1 Pet 2:2, Heb 4:12)

2)     
The one triune God
We worship one true God, who revealed Himself as the eternally self-sufficient, self-existent, self-revealed “I AM”. The one true God has furthered revealed Himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are three distinct Persons but one Essence, thus we may speak with propriety of the Lord our God, Who is one Lord, as a Trinity or as one Being of three Persons. In this Trinity none is afore, or after another; none is greater, or less than another, but the three Persons are coequal and coeternal. (Deut 6:4, Mark 12:29, Isa 43:10-11, Matt 28:19, Luke 3:22, 2 Cor 3:14, John 14:16-17, 1 Cor 1:24, 1 John 1:3).

3)     
Jesus Christ, the Son of God
We believe in the incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Word became flesh. The Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is God and Man. With regards to His divine nature He is the “only begotten Son” of the Father, but as to His human nature, He is the proper Son of Man, of “flesh and blood”. Hence, we affirm the divinity of Jesus as the “only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father”, and the humanity of Jesus as “come in the flesh”. (John 1:14,18, 3:16, Matt 1:23, 1 John 3:18, Heb 7:3)

4)     
The Holy Spirit
We believe in the Holy Spirit, as distinct from the Father and the Son, yet of the same essence with the Father and the Son. The Holy Spirit is the promise of the Father to all believers, proceeding from the Father and sent by the Son. (John 15:26, Acts 2:38-39, Rom. 8:9, Acts 16:6-7)

5)     
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit
We affirm the baptism of the Holy Spirit for empowerment to be Christ’s witnesses, and the bestowment of gifts and their uses for the ministry of the church and the propagation of the Gospel of Christ Jesus to the end of the world. (Luke 24: 49, Acts 1:4-8, 1 Cor 12:1-31).
This experience is distinct and subsequent to the experience of new birth. (Acts 10:44-46, 15:7-9, 19:2-6)

6)     
Humanity, Humanity’s Fall and Redemption
We affirm that the world of Humanity, male and female, was created in the image of God, and it is good and upright. But humanity, by voluntary transgression, fell and the only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ the Son of God. (Gen 1:26-31, 3:1-7, Rom 5:12-21)

7)     
The Salvation of Man
We affirm that salvation is found only in Jesus Christ the Son of God. We are justified through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; whom God displaced publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. (Rom 3:21-25). We are saved by grace through faith, not as a result of work but it is the gift of God. (Eph 2: 8-9). It is through repentance towards God and faith is our Lord Jesus Christ that we enter into eternal life and become heirs of God.
(Titus 2:11, 3:5-7, Rom 10:13-15, Luke 24:47)

8)     
The Evidences of Salvation
We affirm in the evidences of salvation or fruit of repentance. The inward evidence to believer of His salvation is the direct witness of the Holy Spirit. (Rom 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness. (Eph 4:24, 1 John 2:29, 3:7-10, 1 Pet 1:13-16)

9)     
The Church
The Church, locally and universally, is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through His Holy Spirit with divine appointments for fulfillment of her great commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral member of the Church of God.
(Eph 1:22-23, 4:4-13, 1 Cor 3:16, 6:19, Heb 12:23, 1 Pet 2:4-5)

10) 
The Water Baptism
All who sincerely repent and believe in their hearts that Jesus is Lord, is a new creation in Christ. We have to follow the bible principles by going through the water baptism, and be crucified and resurrected with Christ. (Matt 28: 19, Acts 10: 47-48, 20:21, Rom 6:4, Heb 10:22).

11) 
 The Holy Communion
We remember the great works of Jesus Christ on the cross. This also signifies we may participate in the divine nature. (2 Pet 1: 4)

12) 
The Last Things
We believe in the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ from heaven. At that time the dead will be resurrected, and both the living and the dead will be judged. Those whose names are found in the Book of Life will enter into the new heaven and the new earth, and whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life to eternal condemnation in the lake of fire. (1 Thess 4:16-17, Rom 8:23, Titus 2:13, 1 Cor 15:51-52, Rev 19-20, 20:10-15)
