Nanjing International Christian Fellowship

DOCTRINAL STATEMENT


  1. The Scriptures
  2. We believe the Bible is the inspired word of God, without error and infallible in the original manuscripts. We believe the Bible is the final authority in faith and life. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:20; Psalm 19:7-9)

  3. God
  4. We believe there is one God who is the creator of all things, existing eternally in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and possessing the same attributes and perfections.
    (Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

  5. Jesus Christ
  6. We believe that Jesus Christ is God and the sustainer of all things (John 10:30-33; Hebrews 1:3). We believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God (Mathew 16:16). We believe in: His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:17; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:34-35); His sinless life (Hebrew 4:15, 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:9); His resurrection (John 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); His personal return to earth in power and glory (Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11-16)

  7. The Holy Spirit
  8. We believe that the Holy Spirit is God (Acts 5:3-4). We believe that the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Trinity, dwells in every true believer. (Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 2 Corinthians 6:16-17). We believe that the Holy Spirit seals and indwells every believer, spiritually uniting them with one another (Ephesians 1:13; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Galatians 3:26-28). We believe the Holy Spirit enables the trusting, obedient believer to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14, 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20; Ephesians 4:30, 5:18) and continues to endow believers with gifts for the purpose of building up the body, for the common good, just as He wills (1 Corinthians 12:4-11).

  9. The Condition of Man
  10. We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, in innocence, and without sin. In Adam’s sin humanity fell, inherited a sinful nature, became spiritually dead, alienated from God and each other. We believe that, within himself, man is incapable of redeeming himself from his lost and depraved condition. (Genesis 1:26, 3:1-24; Romans 3:10-18, 5:12; Ephesians 2:1-3).

  11. The Work of Christ
  12. We believe that God’s eternal Son, Jesus Christ, became man, without ceasing to be God, in order to reveal God and redeem sinful man. We believe Christ voluntarily offered Himself as our sacrificial substitute on the cross, satisfying God’s righteous judgment against sin. We believe God’s only provision for our sin is Christ’s death on our behalf, through which God reconciles us to Himself. (John 14:6; Acts 4:12; 2 Corinthians 5:21).

  13. Salvation
  14. We believe that salvation is a gift of God’s grace, cannot be gained by any work, and is provided on the single ground of trust in Christ’s work on the cross. All who trust Christ in this way are forgiven of their sins and born into God’s family by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit (John 3:16-19; Romans 3:23, 5:1-9; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5).

  15. The Church
  16. We believe that the church, called in Scripture the Body of Christ, is a spiritual organism and that every true believer is a member of His Body. We also believe that Scripture affirms the establishment and continuation of local churches, groups of Christian believers called together for worship, instruction, fellowship and service (Ephesians 1:22, 23; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Acts 2:42, 13:1).

  17. Eternal State
  18. We believe that God has prepared heaven for the souls of those who trust in Christ to dwell with Him eternally. We believe the souls of those who do not trust Christ for salvation shall be at death eternally separated from God in Hell. (John 14:1-4; Luke 16:19-26; 2 Corinthians 5:8; Philippians 1:23; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9; Revelation 20:11-15).
