What We Believe

1. The Bibles of the Old Testament and the New Testament were originally inspired by God. They are absolutely free from mistakes. They are the complete revelation of God’s plan for the salvation of mankind. They are also the supreme authority of Christian faith and life. (Psalms 119:89; John 12:47-48; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21; Revelation 22:18-19)

2. The one and only God is absolutely the Creator of all things. The Holy Father, Holy Son, and Holy Spirit are eternity. (Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 44:6; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

3. The Holy Son Jesus Christ is the God and also the perfect person. The Holy Spirit was born of the virgin Mary, died for the crucifixion on the cross for our sins; was buried, and rose on the third day, and then ascended to heaven. He is now sitting on the right side of the Holy God, as our high priest and intercessor(Matthew 1:18,22-23; John 1:1-14; Romans 1: 2-4; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Hebrews 7:22-25,8:1; 1 John 2:1)

4. The Holy Spirit, the Holy Father and the Holy Son are glory and deity. The work of the Holy Spirit glory the Lord Jesus Christ, repents sinners, lives by faith, lives in believers, leads, teaches, and gives power to enable believers to live holy lives and ministry.(John 14:16-26,16:7-14; Acts 5:3-4; Romans 8:9-16,26-27; 1 John 2:27)

5. Human is created in the image of God; lost through sin and depravity; we only reborn by the Holy Spirit to obtain salvation and spiritual resurrection. (Genesis 1:27; John 3:5,7; Romans 1:18,3:23,5:12,18-19)

6. It is by grace that through salvation Jesus Christ will shed blood and die for our sins, and will rise for us according to the Bible. For those who believe in Jesus Christ, their sins will be forgiven, their conscience will be purified, and the Holy Spirit will be born, become children of God, become new people in Christ, and reconciliation with God. (John 1:12-13,3:5,6,8; Romans 3:25; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 2 Corinthians 5:17,20; Ephesians 1:7,2:8-9; Hebrews 5:14; 1 John 1:9)

7. Baptism and holy communions are the sacraments that church should observe and provide Christians in the present-day with the testimony they need before God and man. (Matthew 28:18-19; Romans 6:1-4; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

8. The universal church is made up of all who are saved by faith in Jesus Christ, reborn through the Holy Spirit, and connected to Christ. The local church should reflect the truth of the universal church, especially in the unity of the church, ministry, evangelism and membership. (1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 1:23,2:11-22,4:1-6)

9. The Lord Jesus Christ will come again in person. This “blessed hope” is an important key to the personal life and service of believers. (1 Corinthians 15:52-58; Titus 2:11-13; 1 John 3:2-3)

10. The body of the dead will be raised: The believers share the eternal bless and joy with the Lord, and the unbelievers are judged for eternal punishment. (Matthew 25:31-46; John 5:29; 1 Corinthians 15:35-49; Revelation 20:15)

11. All decisions of the local church rely on the Holy Spirit. Through the instruction of the Word of God, everything is obeying the Lord Jesus Christ to glorify God. (1 Corinthians 11:3,12:4-6; Colossians 1:18)

12. Christians are born of the Holy Spirit, they should live a new life through the power given by the Holy Spirit. The responsibility of Christians is to obey God and trust God and live in Christ. (John 10:28-29; Romans 6:13; Galatians 5:16-25; Colossians 2:6)

13. “Christian life” includes ministry, rescues lost souls in the surrounding, and proclaims the gospel to the ends of the earth. In all these things, we need to rely on the power of the Holy Spirit. This power is given to every believer who believes in obedience. Prayer must be given priority in all ministry. (Matthew 28:18-20; John 14:12-14; Acts 1:8,5:32; 1 Corinthians 12:7; Ephesians 3:20,6:18-19)

14. Marriage is the sacred agreement established by a man and a woman in the presence of God. It symbolizes the union of Christ and the church, so it cannot be separated at will. The family is a monogamous system established by God and is responsible for the major beliefs inherited. (Genesis 2:23; Ephesians 5:23-24,32; Mark 10:7-9)
