Confession of Faith

Chinese Version

 

 

 

Concerning the Holy Scripture

We believe all the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testament of the Holy Scripture are inspired by God. All these books are inerrant and infallible Word of God, the sufficient rule of faith and life. We believe the authority of the Holy Scripture that all churches, councils, and decrees are subject to its authority. We also believe the relevancy of the Holy Scripture that no part of the Word of God is irrelevant today regarding the race, time, or space.

Concerning God and the Holy Trinity

We believe there is only one true God, one God in Trinity, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, and three persons in one unity. The Son is eternally generated from the Father and the Holy Spirit is eternally proceeded from the Father and the Son. The Trinity is consubstantial and equally in power, and glory. As the living personal Spirit, pertaining to Gods infinity, He is absolute, supreme, self-existent, immutable, unity, perfect, immense, and eternal. Pertaining to His creation, He is omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent. Holiness, righteousness, love, and truth are God's moral attributes.

Concerning Christ the Mediator

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal begotten Son of God, the Divine Second Person of the Holy Trinity, and the Logos was not only with God, but was God. All things are created through Him, by Him, and unto Him. He is the radiance of God's glory, the exact manifestation of God's being. We believe the two distinct natures of the human and the divine were inseparably joined in the one person of Christ. With His vicarious atonement He redeems us with His blood. We believe that Christ was born of Virgin Mary through the Holy Spirit, died on the cross, buried, resurrected on the third day, and raised to the heavenly place and sat down at the right hand side of God. He is coming back again for His saints and for the completion of the kingdom of God. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

Concerning the Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Divine Third Person of the Holy Trinity, proceeding from the Father and the Son, is "to be believed in, loved, obeyed, and worshiped throughout all ages (The Westminster Confession of Faith)." The Holy Spirit is the sole agent to regenerate men by His grace and indwelling in the hearts of believers as the Comforter and Sanctifier. The Holy Spirit reveals and glorifies Christ our Lord, guide us into all truth, and convicts the world of sin and righteousness and judgment. Through Him all the believers being united as the Body of Christ and in Christ the believers are being built together to become a dwelling place of God.

Concerning the Doctrine of Man

We believe that man is not a spontaneous production of the earth and is not developed through an natural process of evolution and the like. Man is created by God and is created according to the image and the likeness of God which was in a state of innocence with righteousness and holiness. In the state of sin, man is totally depraved. The sinner is spiritually dead, blind, and deaf to the things of God. His will is not free. In the state of grace, through the redemption of Jesus Christ our Lord, the Holy Spirit awakes the sinner spiritually and frees him from the enslavement of sin. Faith is itself a part of Gods gift of salvation. It is Gods gift to sinner.

Concerning the Church of God

We believe that the universal church, which consists of all believers throughout all ages, is the Body and Bride of Christ. The church is the home to the eternal God and the fullness of God, Who fills all and in all. The purpose of the church is to fulfill the great commission of Christ, to edify the saints, and to seek Him with all diligence and perseverance.
