基督教生命堂紐約州珍珠河CEC in Pearl River
Statement of Faith
We believe in the verbal and plenary inspiration of the Bible, that it is infallible and inerrant, and that it is authoritative for faith and life.
我們相信只有一位真神上帝。祂是三位一神 ─聖父、聖子、聖靈，永遠存在。 三位中之每一位都有完全同等的神聖位格。
We believe that there is one God, infinite personal perfect and eternally existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each person in the Trinity is equal in every divine perfection.
We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, was born of the virgin Mary, and he is truly God and truly man.
We believe that Jesus Christ died and resurrected from the dead, ascended into heaven and is daily interceding on our behalf as our high priest.
We believe that the return of Christ includes both the rapture of the church and his return in glory. The first return is for his church and is personal, pre-tribulational, pre-millennial, and may occur at any moment. The second is his return to earth to establish his righteous reign over the earth. This coming is visible, personal, and pre-millennial.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine person and works in the conviction of men and in the regeneration, sanctification and preservation of the believers.
We believe that God directly created the universe ex nihilo. We believe that all basic types of living things, including man, were made by direct act of God during the creation week described in Genesis. We reject both naturalistic and theistic evolution.
We believe that man was made sinless, in God’s own image, and in fellowship with God, but fell into sin. Man is now a sinner both by nature and by choice, and alienated from God. That relationship can be restored solely through God’s provision in Jesus Christ as applied by the Holy Spirit.
We believe that salvation comes to all mankind only by grace through faith in Jesus Christ by means of his substitutionary atoning sacrifice. No human merit contributes to man’s salvation.
We believe that justification is an act of God in which he declares the believer to be righteous on the basis of faith in Jesus Christ and the imputation of the righteousness of Christ to the believing sinner.
We believe that once saved, forever we will be saved, because the Lord loves us to the end, and saves us to the end.
We believe that sanctification is the setting apart of a believer unto God as his purchased possession through the work of the Holy Spirit and the power of his Word.
We believe in accordance to what was recorded in the Bible, there is heaven. Those that believe in Jesus will go to heaven with everlasting life; those that do not will go to hell.
We believe in accordance to what was recorded in the Bible, there is hell. Those that do not believe in Jesus will not have everlasting life, and will go to hell to receive eternal punishment.
We believe that Satan is a created and fallen being, opposed to all that is holy and he is destined for eternal punishment.
