CHRISTIAN TAEKWONDO FELLOWSHIP
Statement of Faith
THE HOLY SCRIPTURES: We believe the Bible consists of sixty-six books, beginning
at Genesis and ending in Revelation, and is the final and inerrant revelation of
the mind of God to man; that the Bible, was given by inspiration of
God, and is the product of Spirit controlled men, who wrote as they were moved
by the Holy Spirit. We further hold that the Bible has been preserved and
superintended by the sovereign hand of God since its authorship, so that we have
the Word of God. (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:19-21; Psalm 119:4; Prov. 30:5; Deut.
4:2; Rev. 22:18-19)
THE TRUE GOD: We believe that there is one living and true God, the Creator,
Sustainer, and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth; He is infinite in His
holiness, worthy of all honor, confidence and love; that in the unity of the
Godhead there are three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy
Spirit. (Ex. 20:2,3; I Cor. 8:6; Matt. 28:19-20; Rev. 4:11; I John 5:7; 2 Cor.
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST: We believe that Jesus Christ is both the Son of God and
God the Son; that He is equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit in all aspects
of His character, attributes, essence, and being; that He is fully God and
eternal in nature with God the Father; that He has no beginning nor end of days,
and that He is the One and only Savior of the world. (John 1:1,14; 5:17-18;
8:58; 10:33-34; Tit. 2:13; Matt. 1:23; Isaiah 7:14)
THE HOLY SPIRIT: We believe that the Holy Spirit is God is equal in His essence
and attributes with God the Father and God the Son; that He is eternal in His
nature and qualities; He is the agent in the new birth; He seals, endues with
power, guides, teaches, convicts, and sanctifies the believer forever. (John
14:16,26; 16:8-11; 3:5-6; 1:33; Matt. 28:19; Heb. 9:14; Luke 1:35; 24:49; Rom.
8:14; 8:16; 8:26-27; Acts 5:30-32; 11:16; Gen. 1:1-3; Eph. 1:13-14; I Cor.
13:8-10; Heb. 2:4).
THE CREATION: We believe that God created the world by His spoken Word in six
literal twenty-four hour days; that man was created from the dust of the earth,
and that God breathed into Adam (the first man on earth) the breath of life;
that Eve (the first woman) was created from Adam's rib, and that Adam and Eve
were the first parents; that we are all descendants of Adam and Eve (Gen. 1-2;
Heb. 11:3; Col. 1:16-18).
THE VIRGIN BIRTH OF CHRIST: We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the
Holy Spirit of God in a miraculous manner; that Mary was a virgin at the time of
the conception of Jesus; that the miraculous manner of this conception and birth
resulted in the unique sinless nature of Christ, the Son of God. (Gen. 3:15; Isa.
7:14; Matt. 1:18-25; Luke 1:35; Jn. 1:4).
THE ATONEMENT FOR SIN: We believe that Christ, as God, personally and freely
shed His blood as the Lamb of God to make a one time, perfect and vicarious
payment for the sin of the whole world; that Christ substituted Himself as a
sacrifice in the sinner's place and that all the sin and iniquity of mankind was
laid upon Him. (Phil 2:5-8; John 1:29,36; 3:16; Isa. 53:5,6; I John 2:2; Heb.
2:14; 10:10-14; 9:15,22; I Peter 1:18-20; Rom. 3:23-25).
THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST: We believe that the Lord Jesus rose bodily from the
dead out of the tomb on the third day after His death at Calvary; that He then
bodily ascended into Heaven as our perfect and reliable High Priest; that He is
seated at the right hand of the Father ever living to make intercession for us.
He is our Advocate for eternity and intercedes for the Believer for forever. (Jn.
20:17-28; I Cor. 15:1-17; Matt. 28:6).
GRACE IN THE NEW BIRTH: We believe that salvation is a free gift from God, and
that it is wholly of the grace of God; that a sinner must be "born again" by the
Spirit of God to inherit eternal life. We further believe that the "new birth"
is not a process, but instantaneous and permanent; that in the new birth the
sinner, who was dead in trespasses and sin, is made alive by the gracious work
of God on his behalf; that the new birth makes the believer a new creation in
Christ Jesus, allowing the sinner to be made a partaker of Christ's divine
nature; that the sinner is born again only after personally believing in the
Gospel (death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ) (Eph. 2:1-4,
8-9; John 3:3-8; 2 Cor. 5:17; I Pet. 1:23-25; I Cor. 15:1-4).
