Our Beliefs 我們的信念

We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God. We believe the Bible is the final authority in every area it addresses for every individual Christian, as well as for the church collectively. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:21, John 10:35)

我們相信聖經是神所啟發、無誤與絕對的道,我們相信聖經在各方面是最終的權威,對每一位基督徒與對整體教會都是如此。(提摩太後書3:16-17, 彼得後書1:21, 約翰福音10:35)

We believe there is one God who eternally exists as three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that all things were created by Him and for Him. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 45:21-22, Matthew 28:19, Colossians 1:16)

我們相信只有獨一神,祂以三位位格永存:聖父、聖子與聖靈。我們相信萬有都是由祂,也是為祂所創造。(申命記6:4, 以賽亞書45:21-22, 馬太福音28:19, 歌羅西書1:16)

We believe that God the Son became a human being in the person of Jesus Christ. That He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life (for He was without sin), died a substitutionary death for all mankind, was raised from the dead the third day, ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God until His enemies are made His footstool. (John 1:1, 14, Matthew 1:18-25, 2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 Peter 3:18, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Hebrews 10:12-13)

我們相信神子耶穌基督道成肉身、降生為人,祂由聖靈感孕,經由童貞女馬利亞出生,在世無罪(因為祂是無罪的),為救贖世人而死,第三日從死裡復活,升天,現在坐在神的右邊,等待祂的仇敵成為祂的腳凳。(約翰福音1:1, 14, 馬太福音1:18-25, 哥林多後書5:21, 彼得前書3:18, 哥林多前書15:3-4, 希伯來書10:12-13)

We believe the Holy Spirit was sent by the Father and the Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. We believe the Holy Spirit regenerates and indwells and seals every believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that He empowers us to live as witnesses for Christ. We believe that all of the gifts of the Holy Spirit are available to His church today. (John 14:16-17, John 16:7-11, Titus 3:5-6, Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, Ephesians 1:13-14, Acts 1:8, Romans 12:6-8, 1 Corinthians 12-14, 1 Peter 4:10-11)

我們相信聖靈由聖父與聖子所差派,叫世人為罪、為義、為審判,自己責備自己。我們相信聖靈讓每一位信徒,在主耶穌基督裡重生、內住與領受印記,使我們有能力為基督做見證。我們相信聖靈的所有恩賜,在今日屬神的教會當中都可以擁有。

(約翰福音14:16-17, 16:7-11, 提多書3:5-6, 羅馬書8:9, 哥林多前書6:19-20, 以弗所書1:13-14, 使徒行傳1:8, 羅馬書12:6-8, 哥林多前書12-14, 彼得前書4:10-11)

We believe that God created human beings, male and female, in His own image. He created them sinless, equal in value, dignity, and worth. According to His purpose and design, men and women are created to fulfill distinct but complementary roles in the contexts of marriage, family, and the local church. (Genesis 1:26-28, Ephesians 5:22-6:4, 1 Timothy 3:1-7)

我們相信上帝按照祂的形象造人、造男造女,起初創造人類是無罪的,在尊重、身分與價值是平等的。根據神的命定與設計,受造的男女要在婚姻、家庭和地方教會完成他們獨特與互補的角色。(創世記1:26-28, 以弗所書5:22-6:4, 提摩太前書3:1-7)

We believe that, as a result of the Fall, all people are sinners by nature and in need of a Savior, and that Jesus Christ is the one and only Savior of the world. That salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Him. We believe that all who call on the name of the Lord shall be saved eternally. (Romans 3:10, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:18-19, Matthew 1:21, 1 John 4:14, John 14:6, Acts 4:12, Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 10:9)

我們相信由於墮落的結果,人類生來就是罪人,需要一位救主,耶穌基督就是那位世人所需要的獨一救主。救恩全賴恩典,只有信靠耶穌基督,我們相信無論何人只要呼求主名,就能得救進入永生。(羅馬書3:10, 3:23, 5:18-19, 馬太福音1:21, 約翰一書4:14, 約翰福音14:6, 使徒行傳4:12, 以弗所書2:8-9, 羅馬書10:9)

We believe there is one church, the body of Christ, consisting of men and women from every tribe, tongue, people, and nation. We believe that each local congregation is an expression of that universal church. (Ephesians 4:4, 1 Corinthians 12:12-13, Revelation 5:9, Acts 2:42-47)

我們相信教會是一體的,是基督的身體,由男與女來自各種族、語言、人民和國家所組成。我們相信每一個地方會眾都是普世教會的一個展現。(以弗所書4:4, 哥林多前書12:12-13, 啟示錄5:9, 使徒行傳2:42-47)
