STATEMENT OF FAITH 信仰 宣言

The doctrinal basis of TORONTO CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY CHURCH shall be the truths of Christianity as revealed in the Bible, including the following:

THE HOLY SCRIPTURES

We believe the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the verbally inspired Word of God, written by men in God’s control, inerrant and infallible in the original manuscripts, and the final authority in faith and life.

THE GODHEAD

We believe in one, true and living God, eternally existing in three persons, Father , Son, and Holy Spirit, these three being identical in essence, equal in power and glory, and having precisely the same attributes and perfections, being the Creator and Supreme Ruler of the universe, the heavens, the earth and all things herein.

THE CONDITION OF MAN

We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God in innocence and without sin, but that in Adam’s sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, became spiritually dead and alienated from God, and now man by himself is incapable of remedying his lost and depraved condition.

THE PERSON AND WORK OF CHRIST

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God, conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin. He died voluntarily as a sinless substitutionary sacrifice on the cross, thereby satisfying God’s righteous judgment against sin. After substantiating the accomplishment of that redemption by His bodily resurrection from the grave, He ascended to the right hand of His Father where He intercedes on behalf of those who trust Him.

THE PERSON AND WORKS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Divine Person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment, that He alone brings new life to those who are spiritually dead, that He baptizes (or places) all believers into the one true Church, which is the Body of Christ, that He indwells them permanently, seals them unto the day of redemption, bestows spiritual gifts upon them and fills (or controls) those who are yielded to Him.

SALVATION

We believe that salvation is the gift of God’s grace. It cannot be gained by meritorious works, but is freely bestowed upon all who put faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ at Calvary. All who so trust the Savior are forgiven of their sins and born into the family of God by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit.

THE CHURCH

We believe that all those who are born again in this present age and comprise the true Church of Jesus Christ, and that only those who are a member of the true Church shall be eligible for membership in the local church, gathered together for worship, fellowship and service of God, recognizing the need for mutual counsel and co-operation with other bodies of like faith.

THE ORDINANCES

We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ instituted two ordinances to be observed by all believers until His return: believer’s baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

CHRISTIAN LIFE

We believe that the life of the believer is to be separated from worldliness by consistent conduct before God and man and is to be in the world as life-giving light.

MARRIAGE

We believe that marriage is between one man and one woman.

THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST

We believe in the personal, imminent coming of the Lord Jesus Christ for His Church, and His subsequent premillennial return to earth to establish His Kingdom.

THE ETERNAL STATE

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead and judgment of all, the unsaved shall suffer everlasting and conscious punishment and the saved shall enjoy everlasting life in the presence of God.

 


信仰宣言

(中譯稿, 原義以英文稿為準)

一.《聖經》

我們相信新舊約《聖經》是上帝默示的語言,在神的引導下藉世人寫成。《聖經》原稿毫無錯誤,是信仰生活的最高權威。

二.上帝的神性

我們相信獨一、又真又活、永存三位一體的神:聖父、聖子、聖靈。三位一體有同一特質,有同等權能與榮耀,有同一屬性與完美,是天上、地下、宇宙萬物的創造者和至高的統治者。

三.人的境況

我們相信人是照著神的形像被造,純潔無罪;但是由於亞當犯罪,人類墮落,承受罪性,靈命滅亡,與神隔絕。人不能靠自己挽回他失落與敗壞的情況。

四.基督的位格與工作

我們相信主耶穌基督是永生神的兒子,道成肉身,藉聖靈感孕,由童貞女所生,為要救贖世人。祂本來無罪,卻為世人代贖犧牲,被釘死在十字架上,成全神對罪的公義審判。祂成就救贖工作後,從墳墓中肉身復活,升天回到父神的右邊,為凡信靠祂的人代求。

五.聖靈的位格與工作

我們相信聖靈有神性的位格,叫世人為罪、為義、為審判,自己責備自己。聖靈能賜新生命給靈裡死亡的人,給凡相信主的人施洗,歸入一個真正的教會,就是基督的身體。祂永遠內住在信徒中作為印記,直到得贖的日子,並賜信徒屬靈的恩賜,給凡順服祂的人。

六.救恩

我們相信救恩是神恩典的禮物,救恩不能靠功德賺取,乃是神白白賜給凡相信耶穌基督在加略山完成救贖工作的人。凡相信救主的人,罪都得赦免,被聖靈重生,成為神家裡的人。

七.教會

我們相信這世代所有重生得救的信徒,組成耶穌基督的教會,只有耶穌基督的教會的成員才有資格成為本地教會的會員,一起聚集敬拜、團契及事奉神,也關顧其他有相同信仰的教會,彼此勉勵和合作。

八.禮儀

我們相信主耶穌基督設立兩種禮儀:信徒洗禮和聖餐,信徒遵守直等到主再來。

九.基督徒生活

我們相信聖徒從世俗中分別出來,在神和世人面前表裡一致,在世上作生命之光。

十.婚姻

我們相信婚姻是一男一女的結合。

十一.基督再來

我們相信主耶穌基督為著祂的教會快要再來,並要在千禧年前回到地上,建立祂的國度。

十二.永恆的事

我們相信死人身體復活,世人都要受審判;沒有得救的人要永遠承受永刑的懲罰,而得救的人與神同在,享受永生。
