Statement of Faith PDF Print E-mail


THE BIBLE, or The Holy Scriptures. The Bible was written by men chosen and inspired by God. It contains no error and was preserved by divine Providence. The Bible consists of 66 books, 39 of which are in the Old Testament, and 27 in the New Testament.
The Bible is the Word that God gives us and it constitutes the only infallible rule of faith and Christian life and the only touchstone to try any doctrine, any tradition, and any religious or ecclesiastical system, as well as any method of Christian action. The Holy Scriptures are a providential document and the Holy Spirit has presided with sovereign power over the origins and development of the biblical text. He insured its perfect teaching and complete historical truth Himself. The Holy Scriptures tell us everything we have to know in the spiritual field. They are not to be altered or completed by any other revelation. references full verses

GOD. There is only one God, existing in three persons of the same nature : the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. God is the Creator of the universe and of everything in it. references full verses

JESUS CHRIST. Jesus Christ is the Saviour and the Lord, the eternal and only begotten Son of God, and is fully God. He is the awaited Messiah, the focus and the concern of all biblical history. Jesus was born of a virgin, fully man, but without sin. His coming to earth, which had been foretold by the law and announced by the prophets, had one central goal, which was for him to die on the cross as an atonement for man's sins. He rose bodily from the dead on the third day. He ascended bodily and sat down at the right hand of God. He is coming back soon in glory and every eye will see him. references full verses

THE HOLY SPIRIT. The Holy Spirit is a person, he is truly God. He is received when one is born again, and dwells in all those who believe in Jesus Christ. He is the one who works in the Church. It is through His ministry that we can understand the Bible for our own salvation. references full verses

ANGELS. Angels were individually created by God. They are spirits. Some of the angels, the demons, with Satan at their head, revolted against God, and were condemned forevermore, with no turning back. Satan, the Devil, like any angel, is a person, and is entirely responsible. references full verses

CREATION. The whole universe was created by God and is maintained by Him. The whole of Creation was done in six days, as is told in Genesis. references full verses

MAN. Man was created in the image of God and for His Glory. All men come from the one first man, Adam, and his wife, Eve, who was formed from him. references full verses

SIN AND THE FALL OF MAN. Tempted by Satan, man sinned in disobeying God's command. Thus he revolted against God. His communion with God was broken. All human beings have been dominated by Satan ever since the fall, rebelling against God, immersed in corruption, targeted by divine wrath and condemnation. Physical and spiritual death are the consequence of sin. references full verses

SALVATION. Only through repentance of his sins, the work of the Holy Spirit and personal faith in Jesus Christ alone, can man be justified by the sole grace of God. Jesus Christ is the only Mediator between God and men. references full verses

WORKS. Man cannot be saved by his own righteousness. The works that please God come as a consequence of salvation and are the outward expression of faith in Jesus Christ, in accordance with his Word. references full verses

MIRACLES. God operates in a supernatural way, according to his plan, thereby showing that he dominates his creation entirely. God also lets Satan make miracles. references full verses

THE CHURCH. The Church is composed of all those who were redeemed by Jesus Christ, whatever race or time they belong to. Its true unity resides in its one Head, Jesus Christ, through the work of the Holy Spirit. Its visible expression is to be found in local churches. references full verses

BAPTISM. Full immersion under water concerns the born again. It is the symbol chosen by God for the purification of man's sins, his burial and resurrection with Christ.
According to the Saviour's order, this symbolic act is compulsory, and according to the practice of the apostles, it is necessary for the admission to membership in the local church. references full verses

THE LORD'S SUPPER. The Lord's Supper was established by the Lord Jesus to commemorate and proclaim his propitiatory death until he comes back. It is to be kept in local churches and under their control. The bread and the wine are the symbols of our Saviour's sacrificed body and of the blood He shed. references full verses

THE AFTER-LIFE. All men will rise from the dead and will have to account for all their deeds in front of God. The redeemed will be welcomed into eternal glory and bliss, while the wicked will be sent to everlasting and conscious punishment. Eternity has no end. references full verses

1 Peter 1:10 to 12. Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.

And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.

But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be? Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
John 3 : 14 to 16. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

Romans 3 : 23 to 28.

Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
1 Peter 1 : 3-9. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

Exodus 8 : 6 & 7. And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt. And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the land of Egypt.
Exodus 8 : 16 to 18. And the LORD said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt. And they did so; for Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice in man, and in beast; all the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of Egypt. And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not: so there were lice upon man, and upon beast.

And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul. And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us.

[THE LORD'S SUPPER] Mark 14 : 22 to 24. And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body. And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it. And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.
1 Corinthians 11 : 23 to 29. For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come. Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.

[THE AFTER-LIFE] Revelation 20 : 12 to 15. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
John 5 : 28 & 29. Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
1 Peter 1 : 3 to 5. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
Matthew 25 : 34 & 41. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.
Luke 16 : 19 to 31. There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
