信條及信仰宣言

Core Beliefs

我們相信:
  1. 聖經,不論舊約或新約,都是神所默示,絕對正確地、無誤地和完全地啟示了神在祂救贖人類計劃裡的旨意,以及祂在基督徒信仰和生命中終極和神聖的權柄(提後3:16, 17; 彼後1:21; 詩119:89; 約12:47, 18; 啟22:18, 19) 。
     
  2. 只有一位神,祂是人類和萬有的創造者,是無限的完美,也是永恆地以聖父、聖子和聖靈,三位一體地存在 (創1:1, 賽44:6; 太 28:19; 林後13:14; 申6:4) 。
     
  3. 耶穌基督是真正及完全的神,也是真正及完全的人。祂是從聖靈感孕,由童貞女馬利亞所生。祂為我們過犯的原故被釘十字架、受死,被埋葬,三日之後連同肉身從死裡復活,昇到天上,坐在全能之神的右邊,作我們的中保 (約1:1-14; 太1:18, 22, 23; 林前15:1-4; 約壹2:1; 來7:22-25, 8:1) 。
     
  4. 聖靈的工作是要榮耀主耶穌基督,並在這個世代施行基督的救贖,使罪人和義人悔改,賜人信心,叫願意相信的罪人重生,在聖徒身上內住、指引和聖化他們,並加力量給他們過敬虔的生活及事奉(約14:16, 25; 16:7, 14; 約壹2:27; 羅8:9-16, 26, 27)。
     
  5. 人是神按照自己的形象造出來的,但因反叛神而墮入罪的光景中,並且失喪。只因神的恩典,他才能靠著在基督裡的信心、藉聖靈重生而得救和得到屬靈的生命 (創1:27; 羅1:18; 3:23; 5:12, 18, 19; 約3:5, 7) 。
     
  6. 對於所有信祂的人,耶穌基督所流的寶血和祂的復活提供了稱義和得救的唯一基礎。只有那在聖靈裡重生的人才會真正接受基督並成為神的兒女(使4:12; 羅5:8, 3:24; 約1:12, 13; 弗2:8, 9; 羅6:23; 多3:5) 。
     
  7. 水禮和聖餐是唯一兩個現今在教會中被舉行的聖禮,以此作為信徒對神順服的印記和展現人前的見證 (太28:18, 19; 羅6:1-4; 林前11:23-26) 。
     
  8. 「真正的教會」是由一群因信耶穌基督而被聖靈重生的人組成,並在這以基督為首的身體裡合一。只有這些「真正的教會」的成員才能得到地方教會的會員資格(弗2:11-22; 林前12:13; 弗1:23)。
     
  9. 在聖靈裡重生的基督徒,是會藉著聖靈的能力活出新的生命。他們的責任是要將自己降服給神,並且信靠神的保守 (加5:16-25; 西2:6; 羅6:13; 約10:28, 29)。
     
  10. 事奉是基督徒生活其中一個最重要的部分。基督徒事奉的基要是要為贏取靈魂和將福音遍傳世界。祈禱是所有基督徒事奉的核心(太28:18-20; 使1:8; 林前12:7; 弗3:20; 使5:32; 約14:12-14; 弗6:18, 19)。
     
  11. 主耶穌基督必定會再次親身降臨人間,而這「有福的盼望」是信徒個人生活及事奉裡,極重要的方向 (多2:11-13; 約壹3:2, 3)。
     
  12. 已死的人都會在審判前肉身復活,信徒將得著與主永遠同住和永恆的福樂,而不信的人將面對審判和永刑 (太25:31-46; 約5:29; 啟20:15)。
     
  13. 婚姻乃神所設計為一男一女結合成為一體,直至死亡的嚴肅盟約(創 2: 22-24; 可 10:9),要建立以基督為中心的婚    姻,男女相方必須為認信的基督徒(林後 6:14-18)。
The following are the core beliefs of Chinese Bible Missions Church based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

God

There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise.  God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom,  justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Revelation

God has revealed himself to us through his son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, the holy scriptures, and through all of creation itself.

Mankind

Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations.

The Fall

When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, and fractured all of creation ever since that time.

Salvation

Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.

The Church

The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Ressurection

Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.
