Articles of Faith 信仰宗旨

The chief tenets of belief of the Church are as follows:

迦密教会信条纲要如下:

  • We believe in one God existing in three co-equal and co-eternal Persons; the Father, Son and Holy Spirit;
  • 相信乃属一真神,三位一体、同等、同永;即圣父圣子圣灵;
  • We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and is true God and true man;
  • 相信神永生儿子,耶稣基督,乃从圣灵而孕,由童贞女马丽亚所生,兼有神人二性;
  • We believe in the divine, verbal and plenary inspiration of the Scriptures in the original languages, and are therefore the inerrant and infallible Word of God, the supreme and final authority in faith and life;
  • 相信圣经乃神口述所启示而写成者,在原文上并无错误,亦不会有错误,是我们信仰与生活至高无上的准则;
  • We believe that man was created in the image of God, but sinned through the fall of Adam, thereby incurring physical death and spiritual death which is separation from God, and that human beings, born with a sinful nature, are sinners in thought, word and deed;
  • 相信世人是照神形象而造成,惟因亚当堕落犯罪,不独招致肉身死亡,灵魂也因之而‘死’,与神隔绝,且人类即已带罪而来,在言行思想上皆有罪;
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died a propitiatory and expiatory death as a representative and substitutory sacrifice, and that all who truly repent of their sins and believe in Him are justified before God on the grounds of His shed blood;
  • 相信耶稣基督为所有信祂者的罪而死,代替世人献祭赎罪,使世人与神和好,凡悔改认罪,信靠耶稣基督宝血除罪之人,在神面前得称义;
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His ascension into Heaven, and in His exaltation at the right hand of God where He intercedes for us as High Priest and Advocate;
  • 相信主耶稣身体已复活升天,现坐在神右边,执行大祭司职份,为我们代求;
  • We believe in the personal, visible and premillennial return of our Lord Jesus Christ to judge this world;
  • 相信主耶稣基督必亲自以形体在千禧年再临,审判这世界;
  • We believe that salvation is by grace through faith, not by works, and that all who repent and receive the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour are born again by the Holy Spirit and thereby become the children of God;
  • 相信得救是本乎恩,也因着信,而非出于行为,凡悔改接受耶稣基督为救主者,就藉着圣灵重生,成为神的儿女;
  • We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and to convict and regenerate the sinner, indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service;
  • 相信圣灵职事乃在于荣耀主耶稣基督,并在感动罪人悔改信主,住在信徒心内,教导并赐能力,使他们过敬虔生活,并虔诚事奉主;
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, according to the covenant of Grace, instituted the Sacrament of Baptism for believers and their children and the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper, which sacraments shall be observed by His Church till He comes;
  • 相信主耶稣基督依据恩典之约为信徒与其儿女设立洗礼及圣餐,并吩咐教会施行此圣礼,直至再来;
  • We believe in the eternal security, bodily resurrection , and blessedness of the saved, and in the bodily resurrection and eternal conscious punishment of the lost;
  • 相信得救者永得保守,身体复活,享受永福;不信者身体也要复活,却必受永刑。
  • We believe in the true, spiritual unity in Christ of all redeemed by His precious blood, and the necessity of faithfully maintaining the purity of the Church in doctrine and life according to the Word of God, and be separated from apostasy and ecumenism.(2Cor 6:14-18; Rev 18:4)
  • 相信凡信靠基督宝血得救之人,在基督内有属灵之真正合一,且信基督教会应切实尊守经训,在信仰与生活上持守纯洁,脱离背道与普世协进会所提倡之教会大统一运动(哥林多后书 6:14-18;启示录18:4)
