EFCC Statement of Faith
- We believe in one true God, Creator of all things and
Lord of the universe, eternally existing in three person, Father, Son
and Holy Spirit .
- We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, being
true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy spirit and
born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross for the atonement
of man’s iniquities, so that man may be delivered from the
condemnation and power of sin. Further, He arose from dead,
ascended into heaven, where at the right hand of the Father He now is
the Advocate and High Priest interceding for the saints. He is
also the Head of the Church, and will come visibly again from heaven
to establish His kingdom and to judge the living and the dead.
- We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of
the Trinity, who descended on the day of Pentecost to glorify Christ,
convict sinners, grant new birth, and to indwell and empower the
believers for victories and holy living, and to unite them into one
body, the Church of Christ.
- We believe that man was created in the image of God but
became spiritually dead because of disobedience to God. Since
Adam our fore-father sinned, all have become sinners, living under the
wrath of God. Only through sincere repentance and acceptance of
Christ’s redemption, cleansing by His blood and regeneration by the
Holy Spirit can one enter the Kingdom of God.
- We believe in the Scriptures, both Old and New
Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, the living Word of life,
wholly truthful and trustworthy, and the final authority for all
Christian faith and life.
- We believe that all men will be resurrected, the
believers to eternal life and heavenly blessings and the unbelievers
to eternal death in hell.
- We believe that Satan is the Devil, the source of all
evils. He is working in the hearts of disobedient men, and will
one day receive eternal punishment.
