信仰

信仰立場聲明

此網誌的信仰立場屬正統基督教福音信仰。

1. 聖經是神話語無誤的記載,包括新舊約共66卷書是我們信仰的根基。我們相信它完全是聖靈獨特的啟示,它的原稿沒有絲毫誤差,其內容是信仰與生活的最高權威。(太4:4; 提後3:16)

2. 只有一位真神﹔以聖父、聖子、聖靈三位一體永遠同在,每位擁有神的所有神格、神性與特性。(申6:4; 太28:18; 約1:1~3、8; 徒5:3、4)。神的核心屬性是愛。(約壹4:7~21; 林前13; 弗3:14~21)

3. 耶穌基督是神,因聖靈成孕,神蹟性的為童女所生,道成肉身,所以祂是完全的神性與真實的人性永遠的結合。(約1:1、14; 太1:18~25; 路1:30~37; 西2:9; 腓2:6~11)。祂從未犯過罪,並自願代替眾人贖罪而死在十字架上,因此滿足了神的公義,成全了救恩,這救恩是任何單一信靠祂的人都可以得到的。(約壹3:5; 彼前3:18; 約10:17~18; 林後5:21; 約壹4:10; 羅3:24~26)。祂那曾經活過而死去的身體,從死裡復活得榮耀。(林前15:4、14; 路24:36~43; 約20:24~29)。祂(以相同的身體)升天后坐在天父的右邊,成為人與神之間的唯一中保,不斷地為人祈求。(徒1:9~11; 弗1:20; 提前2:5; 來7:24~25; 約壹2:1~2)

4. 神照著祂的形象造人,但因為人不順服神而犯罪,所以與造物主隔絕,因亞當的墮落,使以後所有的人類都被定罪。(創1:26~27; 2:15~17; 3:1~24; 羅5:12~21; 林前15:21~22)。因著原罪性和犯罪的後果,每一個人都需要聖靈的重生與更新。(羅3:9~20; 弗2:1~7; 可7:20~23; 約3:1~21; 多3:5~7)

5. 救恩完全是出於神的恩典,而不是人任何義行或宗教儀式可換得的。但只要單憑信心信靠耶穌基督,就可得救、稱義,因此在神的眼中被定無罪。(弗2:8~10; 羅3:21~26; 9:30~33; 加3:11~14; 22~24)。每一位從聖靈重生的基督徒,從他接受主成為救主的那一刻,便能享有重生的確據,這樣的確據並非出於人的作為或人們的好行為,乃是藉著神的話透過聖靈的工作,在每個信徒的心中給予這樣的肯定。(帖前1:5; 約1:12~13; 約5:9~13; 羅8:14~17)

6. 聖靈來到世上為要彰顯及榮耀基督,並且將救恩帶給人們,祂使人知罪,並使他們歸向基督,給他們屬靈的生命,並且不斷的住在信徒心中,保守他們直到主再來(得贖)的日子。信徒憑信心支取聖靈豐富的能力,與受聖靈管理。(約16:7~15; 提多3:5; 約3:5~8;
羅8:9; 弗1:13~14; 4:30; 林前6:19; 3:2~3; 羅8:24)。每一位信徒皆被神呼召,過一個被聖靈充滿的生活,以避免肉體的私慾,而結出聖靈的果子榮耀神。(加5:16; 弗5:18)

7. 耶穌基督是教會的頭,教會是基督的身體是由所有歷世歷代的信徒所構成的。(西1:18; 弗1:22~23; 5:23~32; 帖前4:13~18)

8. 耶穌基督必親自有形有體的再來到地上,完成人類歷史與永遠的計劃。(徒1:9~11; 3:19~21; 啟19:1~22; 21)

9. 因著主耶穌的大愛,祂吩咐所有的信徒將福音傳到地極,使萬民作祂的門徒,完成主的大使命。(羅12:1~2; 加2:19~20; 腓3:7~21; 太28:18~20; 路24:46~49; 可16:15~16; 徒1:7~8)

Statement of Faith

THE BIBLE

We believe the Bible, as originally given, to be without error, the fully inspired and infallible Word of God and the supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and conduct (Matthew 4:4; 2 Timothy 3:16).

THE TRINITY

We believe that the Godhead exists as one God in three dimensions: each co-equally and co-eternally one God in God the Father dimension, God the Word dimension revealed in the Lord Jesus Christ and God the Holy Spirit dimension and that these three are One Sovereign in creation, providence and redemption (Romans 1:20; Colossians 2:9; John 1:1-5).

THE SAVIOUR

We believe in the true and proper deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His real and complete humanity, in His sinless life, in His authoritative teaching, in His substitutionary and atoning sacrifice through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His heavenly intercession and in His second advent to receive His Church.

THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe in the deity of the Holy Spirit who proceeds from the Father and the Son and the necessity of His work in conviction of sin, repentance, regeneration and sanctification, and that the believer is also promised an enduement of power as the gift of Christ through the baptism in the Holy Spirit with signs following. Through this enduement the believer is empowered for fuller participation in the ministry of the Church, its worship, evangelism and service.

MANKIND

We believe in the universal revelation of the light of Christ to all men and in the universal sinfulness of all men since the Fall, rendering man subject to the need for redemption through the revelation of Jesus Christ the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 1:9; Romans 3:23; John 14:6).

SALVATION

We believe in the necessity for salvation through repentance towards God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ by which the sinner is pardoned and accepted as righteous in God’s sight. This justification is imputed by the grace of God because of the atoning work of Christ, is received by faith alone and is evidenced by the impartation of the life of God that manifests in the fruit of the Spirit and a holy life (Acts 2:38; Romans 5:1-5; Romans 8:2; John 3:16; Galatians 2:20; 5:22, 23).

THE CHURCH

We believe in the spiritual unity and the priesthood of all believers in Christ and these comprise the universal Church, the Body of Christ (John 17:20-23; Ephesians 4:3-6; 1 Peter 2:5; Revelation 1:6).

THE MINISTRY

We believe in the service ministries that Christ has set in His Church, namely, apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, and in the present operation of the manifold Gifts of the Holy Spirit according to the New Testament (Ephesians 4:11, 12; Romans 12:3-8; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 28-31).

THE ORDINANCES

We believe in the baptism of believers by immersion in water in obedience to the command of Christ and in the commemoration of Christ’s death by the observance of the Lord’s Supper until His return (Matthew 28:18-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26).

THE COMMISSION

We believe that the gospel embraces the needs of the whole man and that the Church is therefore commissioned to preach the gospel to the world and to fulfil a ministry of healing and deliverance to the spiritual and physical needs of mankind (Mark 16:15-20; Acts 10;38; 1 John 3:8; Luke 4:18-20).

THE COMING KING

We believe in the personal, physical and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to reign in power and glory (Acts 1:11; Matthew 24:30; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-8).
