believe that the entire Bible, including all sixty-six books in the
Old Testament and the New Testament, is God-breathed and was written
down by men. We believe in the inerrancy of the Bible, and that the
Bible is the truth, the center of Christian fellowship, and the only
inerrant guideline of human behavior.
(Father, Son, and Holy Spirit)
We believe that there is only
one eternal God, He is above all. God includes three beings: Father, Son,
and Holy Spirit. These three beings are one, but each has equal holiness
We believe that the Son Jesus
Christ is absolutely divine. He has the holiness not attainable by human,
He is the true God, and has co-existed with the Father and the Holy Spirit
since the eternal past. He is eternal, and He never lost His divine nature
even though He chose to humble Himself to become a man. He was born of the
virgin Mary through the conception from the Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Holy Spirit
is God, having the same nature as the Father and the Son. He testifies for
our sins, for righteousness, for judgment, and for the truth. He is the
agent for humans being born again. He dwells in the heart of every child
of God, seals them, upholds them, guides them, teaches them, testifies for
them, cleanses them, and helps them.
We believe that God
created the universe and all things in it, each according to its own
We believe that the first
man, Adam, was without sin when he was created, but he chose to
rebel against God and led the human kind into condemnation and
death. Since then, all human beings have been born in sin, grown in
unrighteousness, and become sinners without excuse before God.
We believe that only through
the Christ that was the Word becoming flesh, human can escape the curse of
sin. Jesus was sinless, but he chose to become a man in order to bear the
sin of human beings, to suffer and die on the cross, and was resurrected
on the third day, fulfilling the righteous demand of God. His salvation
belongs to all who believe in Him and are willing to receive this grace.
We believe that sinners can be
saved from sin only through believing in the salvation accomplished in
Jesus Christ. The salvation is based upon God¡¦s grace and through the
faith of humans, but not upon their good deeds.
We believe that all who accept
Jesus Christ as their Savior are born again in the Holy Spirit, and live
in Christ until eternity.
We believe that the
church was built by Jesus Christ. He is the head of the church; the
church is His body for the purpose of serving and to be His glorious
bride. We believe that the church is composed of born-again
Christians, manifested through many local churches. A local church
is composed of baptized believers who join with the gospel through
faith; they practice the ordinances and use His laws as the
guidelines for living.
(Baptism and Communion)
We believe in the two ordinances
of church: baptism and communion.
Baptism is a declaration of
faith by the believers in the crucifixion, burial, and resurrection of
Christ. The obedience in baptism is an effect from their faithful
living. Through this ordinance, they demonstrate in public their
desire to be crucified and buried with Christ, and then resurrected
with Him, and their desire to seek after the sanctification of
Christian living. CHCCC practices communion once a month. The bread
signifies the body of Christ; the cup signifies the blood of Christ.
To take the bread and the cup signifies the remembrance of the Lord,
of His death and of the hope of His return. All who have been baptized
and understand the meaning of communion can join in this ordinance.
We believe that Jesus
Christ will return Himself to judge the dead and the living.
We believe in the actual
resurrection of the dead to face the final judgment upon returning
of Christ. The justified believers will be resurrected to receive
eternal life, and the unbelievers will be resurrected to be
We can have fellowship with
other believers who share the same faith, but should separate from any
