Statement of Faith.
1 Living Stone Chinese Community Church believes in all of the sixty-six (66) Books of the Old and New Testament in the Holy Bible, and considers them the inspired Word of God, without any error, the all-sufficient authority in matters of faith, doctrine and Christian living
2 Living Stone Chinese Community Church believes in the one living God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
3 Living Stone Chinese Community Church believes: in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, that He is truly God and truly man; Jesus Christ’s death on the cross in order to pay the price of man’s sins; His bodily resurrection from the dead; His ascension into Heaven where He sits at the right hand of His Father and is now our High Priest and advocate. We believe He will come again. Amen!
4 Living Stone Chinese Community Church believes God exists in three (3) persons: God, the Father; God, the Son; God, the Holy Spirit. These three possess the same character, are of equal importance, and co-exist. The work of the Holy Spirit is to convict of sin, give new life, and reside within the believers, helping them live holy lives and serve God and people.
5 Living Stone Chinese Community Church believes man was created in the image of God but fell into sin with the original man, Adam, and now is lost. Only by the regeneration work of the Holy Spirit can man’s salvation and spiritual life be redeemed.
6 Living Stone Chinese Community Church believes eternal salvation is a free gift of God, entirely apart from man’s works or efforts, and is possessed by and all who have faith in and receive Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
7 Living Stone Chinese Community Church believes in the bodily resurrection of the dead, the everlasting blessedness (Heaven) which is the eternal presence with God for those who have trusted Jesus Christ as their Savior; and, the everlasting punishment (Hell) which is eternal separation from God for those who have not believed in Jesus Christ.
8 Living Stone Chinese Community Church believes Jesus Christ is the only Head of our Church. Our Church is one body of believers, reborn through the Holy Spirit. We worship God as a fellowship of believers, through the power of the Holy Spirit, and under the lordship of Jesus Christ. We minister to each other and to those around the world, leading the lost to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, and nurturing Christian growth through teaching, preaching and fellowship.
