Our Faith


This is the faith as the contents of God’s New Testament economy, which all the real believers in Christ hold and fight for.

Holding the Bible as the complete and only divine revelation, we strongly believe that God is eternally one and also eternally the Father, the Son, and the Spirit, the three being distinct but not separate.
We hold that Christ is both the complete God and the perfect man. Without abandoning His divinity, He was conceived in the womb of a human virgin, lived a genuine human life on earth, and died a vicarious and all-inclusive death on the cross. After three days He resurrected bodily and has ascended to the heavens. He is now in glory, fully God but still fully man. We look to His imminent return with the kingdom of God, by which He will reign over the earth in the millennium and in eternity.
We confess that the third of the Trinity, the Spirit, is equally God. All that the Father has and is, is expressed by the Son, and all that the Son has and is, is realized as the Spirit.
We further believe that mankind is in need of God’s salvation. Though we were absolutely unable to fulfill the heavy demands of God’s righteousness, holiness, and glory, Christ fulfilled all the requirements through His death on the cross. Because of Christ’s death, God has forgiven us of our sins, justified us, making Christ our righteousness, and reconciled us to Himself.
Based on Christ’s redemption, God regenerates the redeemed with His Spirit to consummate His salvation, that they may become His children. Now possessing God’s life and nature, the believers enjoy a daily salvation in His Body in this age and the eternal salvation in the coming age and in eternity. In eternity we will dwell with God in the New Jerusalem, the consummation of God’s salvation of His elect.
All the main points above are supported by many verses in the Bible. When we hear the faith – the objective faith – something within rises up: there is an infusion from God and an ability in us is produced – we simply believe! We need more and more of such hearing of the faith!
