The Doctrinal Principles of the Christian Association ″MED″

 

1. The Whole Scripture (both Old and New Testaments) is inspired by God, who used different people to record His revelation with no errors in the original manuscripts. These people, though being guided by the Holy Spirit, wrote in their own unique style. The Bible is without error, infallible and complete. It is the highest and absolute authority in all matters of faith and practice. (Psalm 19:7-11; II Peter 1:19-21; II Timothy 3:16-17; Acts 1:16; I Thessalonians 2:1-3; I Corinthians 2:11-14, 14:37; II Samuel 23:2; John 10:32-35; Romans 15:4).

 

2. There is One God, existing eternally in three persons - God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Each Person of the Triune God is fully God and has the same nature, attributes and perfection. Each Person is worthy of praise and obedience. This One God created the universe and everything that exists in it.  (Deuteronomy 6:4; Mark 12:29; I Corinthians 8:4; John 1:1,14; 6:27, 10:30, 14:16; Romans 1:7; Hebrews 1:8, 11:1-3; Acts 5:3-4; Genesis 1:1, 11:7; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; II Corinthians 13:3).

Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Triune God, was conceived in the womb of the Virgin Mary by the Holy Spirit, and is fully God and fully human. As a human person he physically existed in history. (Isaiah 7:14, 9:6-7; Philippians 2:5-11; Matthew 1:16-25; John 5:17-23, 17:5, 20:28; Revelation 1:8, 17-18; Hebrews 1:1-8; Colossians 1:15-20, 2:9).

The Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Triune God who gives spiritual life to all believers, and dwells in them. He baptizes them into the one Body of Jesus Christ (that is, the universal church) at the time of conversion. He seals them for the day of redemption. He is the infallible interpreter of the infallible written Word of God. The Holy Spirit sanctifies the believer for works of service and endows all believers with different gifts according to His will in order to build His Church. The different gifts, which exceed the believers natural potential, is evidenced by the Fruit of the Spirit as described in the Word of God. (John 16:7-15; I Corinthians 2:10-14; John 15:26, 16:14; Titus 3:5; I Corinthians 6:19, 12:4-13; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 1:13-14, 4:30; Galatians 5:22-25; Acts. 2:4; 7-13, 31, 5:3-4, 6:8-10, 55; II Corinthians 3:17).

 

3. Man was created in the image of God, but through his disobedience, he lost his perfection and became spiritually dead in his sins. He is now subject to physical death and the power of the devil. This spiritual death and full depravity extends to all humanity, and this is why every person who is born into this world is born with a sin nature and in need of spiritual life from God. Human beings are thoroughly and irrevocably evil, and in need of God’s grace and mercy for their salvation and redemption. (Genesis 1:26; 2:17; 3:17-19, 6:5; Psalm 2:1-3, 14:1-3, 51:5, 7; Jeremiah 17:9; John 3:6, 6:53; Romans 3:10-19, 5:12, 8:6-8; Ephesians 2:13; Isaiah 53:6).

 

4. The result of sin is physical and spiritual death, and as a result no one may enter the Kingdom of God unless he is born again. There is no amount of change in attitude or behavior, no moral endeavor, nor any number of good deeds that will allow a person to come to God or get to heaven. (John 1:12-13, 3:3-8, 14:6; Titus 3:5; II Corinthians 5:17; I John 5:1; Acts. 4:12; Isaiah 64:6; Romans 3:1-23; Galatians 3:22; Romans 5:12)

 

5. Jesus Christ became the substitute offering for sinners to satisfy the requirements of a Holy and righteous God. He died once and for all as the necessary and perfect sacrifice for the sins of the whole world. There is no other sacrifice for sins that God will accept. Redemption was made possible solely through the shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. There is nothing else that can be added to the value of His precious Blood or to the merit of His finished work. (Isaiah 53; II Corinthians 5:21; John 1:29; Hebrews 9:27-28; I Peter 2:24, 3:18; Colossians 1:20-21, 2:14; I Corinthians 15:1-8; Romans 3:25-26, 5:6-8; Galatians 3:13; I Peter 1:18-19).

 

6. Jesus Christ was crucified, died, was buried, and rose from the dead. His body was physically resurrected according to the Scriptures.  The risen Savior ascended to heaven and now sits at the right hand of God the Father as the mediating High Priest, and the advocate and protector of believers (I Corinthians 15:3-7; Romans 4:25, 8:34; John 20:11-29, 21:26-28; Acts. 1:3, 9-11, 2:23-24, 3:13-15, 10:39-41; Ephesians 1:20-21; Hebrews 1:3; 4:14-16; 7:25; I John 2:1-2; Luke 24:36-39).

 

7. Salvation is a gift of God´s grace to man, and is accepted by man through the act of personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Every one who accepts Him is born anew through the Holy Spirit and becomes a child of God. All who accept Him are justified (declared innocent) before God. (Ephesians 1:13; 2:6-9; John 1:12-13, 3:16, 5:24, 6:47; Acts 4:12, 16:31; Romans 3:23; chapter 4, 5:1, 24-25, 6:23, 8:1, 10:13; Galatians 2:20, II Corinthians 5:17).

 

8. The Church is made up of all who truly believe and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior. The Church is the Body and the Bride of Christ. All believers are united together in peace by the Spirit, rise above all prejudices and religious practices, and love each other eagerly with a pure heart. Jesus Christ is the Foundation, the Head, and the Corner-stone of the Church. (Ephesians 1:22-23, 2:19-22, 4:3, 6:15-16; I Corinthians 1:10, 3:11, 12:12-27; Philippians 2:1-5; Galatians 5:13-14; I Peter 4:8; Colossians 1:18).

 

9. The Mission of God´s people at the present time is to evangelize the world (the people of all nations) and make disciples of those who come to know Jesus Christ as their Savior. (Matthew 28:18-20; II Timothy 2:2; Acts 1:7-8).

 

10. Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will return bodily and in person to the earth at an unexpected time. It is the blessed hope of that awaits all believers. (John 14:1-3; Acts 1:11; I Thessalonians 1:10, 4:16-17; Hebrews 9:28; Philippians 3:20-21; I John 2:28, 3:1-3; Titus 2:13; Matthew 24:44-46; Revelation 1:7, 12).

 

11. Satan is a real person. He is the adversary of God and His people, and directs his actions against the work of God. However, greater is He (the Holy Spirit) who is in us, than he (Satan) who is in the world. (Revelation 12:9; Ephesians 6:11-12; I Peter 5:8; I John 4:4)
