ARTICLE 4 - DOCTRINES
4 ESCCC believes and teaches the following doctrines based solely on the Holy Scripture (the 39 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the New Testament):
4.1 We believe in the divine inspiration and infallibility of the Holy Scripture, as originally given, and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
4.2 We believe in the unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in the Godhead.
4.3 We believe in the sovereignty of God in creation, revelation, redemption and the final judgment.
4.4 We believe that Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Son of God, was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.
4.5 We believe that all people are made in the image of God and for fellowship with Him. We believe that the universal sinfulness of human nature since the Fall rendered all subject to God's wrath, condemnation and penalty of sin.
4.6 We believe that redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin is only through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God, as our representative and substitute. We believe that in His resurrection, God's acceptance of His atoning death was demonstrated.
4.7 We believe that the sinner is reconciled and justified to God, not through any personal merit but solely on the basis of God's grace received through faith in Jesus Christ.
4.8 We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and His ascension to the right hand of the throne of God, the Father; and subsequently the bodily resurrection of all believers at God's appointed time.
4.9 We believe in the necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit to make the death of Christ effective in the individual sinner, granting the person repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ.
4.10 We believe in the indwelling and work of the Holy Spirit in the believer.
4.11 We believe in the one holy universal church which is the Body of Christ, comprised of all those who acknowledge Jesus Christ as their Saviour and Lord.
4.12 We believe in the personal and visible return of Jesus Christ in His Glory at God's appointed time. We believe that the full consummation of the Kingdom of God awaits His return.
