Statement of Faith

 

TACS Statement of Faith

We believe that the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, was given by inspiration of God, and is inerrant and our only rule in matters of faith and practice.

We believe in divine creation; that man was created by the direct act of God and in the image of God.

We believe that Adam and Eve, in yielding to the temptation of Satan, became fallen creatures.

We believe that all men are born in sin.

We believe in the incarnation, the Virgin Birth, and the Deity of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

We believe in His vicarious and substitutionary Atonement for the sins of mankind by the shedding of His blood on the cross.

We believe in the resurrection of His body from the tomb, His ascension to Heaven, and that He is personally coming again.

We believe in His power to save men from sin.

We believe in the necessity of the New Birth, and this New Birth is through the regeneration by the Holy Spirit.

We believe that salvation is by grace, through faith in the atoning blood of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

We believe that this creed is a sufficient basis for Christian fellowship and that all born-again men and women who sincerely accept this creed should be separated from the world of apostasy and sin and should live together in peace, and that it is their Christian duty to promote harmony among the members of the Body of Christ, and also work together to get the Gospel to as many people as possible in the shortest time possible.
