Statement of faith

CCM uses the followingto express its Statement of Faith:

We believe the Holy Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, is the inspire Word of God, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.

We believe in the one, true and living God, eternally existing in three persons-Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.

We believe in God the Father, the Creator, Ruler and Sustained of heaven and earth and everything therein.

We believe in God the Son, Jesus Christ, true God and true man, conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross and shed His blood as an atonement for the sins of men, and was raised bodily from the dead. He ascended into heaven, where at the right hand of the Majesty on High. He now is our High Priest and Advocate. We believe in His imminent return according to His promise.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Godhead, who is of one substance, equal in power, and co-existent with the Father and the Son. His ministry is to convict men, regenerate the believing sinners, and to indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believers for godly living and service.

We believe that man was created in the image and the likeness of God, but in Adam all men have fallen into sin, and as sinners men cannot save themselves, but are in need of God's salvation.

We believe that penitent sinners are regenerated solely by God's grace and justified through faith in Jesus Christ.

We believe that there shall be a bodily resurrection of the just to eternal life, and of the unjust to eternal punishment.

We believe that the church is one body, consisting of those regenerated by the Spirit of God and of which Christ is the Head, expressing itself in worship, fellowship, evangelism and service.

Their vision is to pool together the strength of Chinese churches and Christians all over the world so that through various channels they may reach their kinsmen with the good news that God loves the world. There are 1.2 billion Chinese in China and over 70 million Chinese overseas. For every five people or three non-believers in the world, there is one Chinese.
