Faith Statement

本教會堅信下列基本真道:

一.神是自有永有,祂創造天地萬物和人類。乃是聖父,聖子,聖靈三位一體的真神。(出3:14;啓4:11;約17:3;約壹5:28;約1:1;約20:28;徒5:3-4;羅8:9-11;提前2:5)

二.主耶穌基督是神的獨生子,道成肉身,從聖靈懷孕,為童貞女馬利亞所生,被釘死于十字架上,流血為人贖罪,復活昇天,坐在神的右邊,成為神與人之間唯一的中保。(約1:14;徒2:36;太1:18;太1:22-23;腓2:8;來9:11-12;弗1:20;徒1:11;提前2:5)

三.聖靈是信徒的保惠師。祂感動世人知罪悔改,永與信徒同住,引導信徒明白真理,得勝成聖。(約14:16-17;16:8, 13;林前6:11;加5:16)

四.聖經全部六十六卷,都是神所默示的,完全無誤,永不改變,為基督徒信仰及生活之唯一準則。(提前3:16-17;彼後1:21;約14:26;16:13;太5:18;彼前1:24-25;太4:4;28:20)

五.人是神照祂自己的形像所造。因犯罪以致敗壞,遠離真神,死在過犯罪惡之中,無法自救,必須靠神的恩典,悔改信主,乃蒙赦免,藉聖靈重生,方能進入神的國。(創1:26-27;9:6;羅3:23;弗1:7;2:1-3;2:8-9;徒4:12;20:21;約3:3-5)

六.基督是教會的元首。教會是基督的身體,是神的家。包括所有重生得救的信徒。(弗1:22-23;提前3:15;林前12:13)

七.主耶穌基督必再來審判死人,活人。信祂的永遠與祂同在。不信的永遠沉淪滅亡。萬物都要服在祂的腳下,祂的國必存到永遠。(帖後1:7-9;來9:27;啓11:15;20:11-15;帖前4:16-17;林前15:24-28)

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The Church firmly holds the following doctrines as fundamental truth.

1. God is self-existent, creator of heaven and earth, and of all mankind. He is the only true God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit, three in one.

2. Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God, the Word incarnate, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary. He was crucified and died on the cross, to atone for the sins of Man. He was resurrected, ascended into Heaven, and is the mediator between God and Man.

3. The Holy Spirit is Comforter to the believers. He convicts people of sin and leads them to repentance. He abides forever with believers, leads them into the truth, and sanctifies them.

4. The Bible, consisting of sixty-six books, is inspired by God. It is the perfect truth, it changes not, and is the sole basis for doctrine and deed.

5. Man is created by God according to His image, and is depraved because of sin. Man must be born again by the Holy Spirit through faith in Jesus Christ unto salvation and remission of sin in order to enter into the kingdom of God.

6. The Church is the body of Christ, who is its head. The Church is the family of God, consisting of all born again Christians.

7. Jesus Christ shall come again to establish the eternal kingdom. On the last day, all men shall be resurrected, the believer resurrected unto eternal life, the unbeliever resurrected unto eternal destruction.


History

拉拔克华人教会的前身为校园查经班,由台湾和香港留学生中一些爱主的弟兄于1978年成立。后来于82年前后成为休斯敦中国教会的差传,林立元牧师成为第一任牧师,任期三年。徐佳音牧师为第二任牧师,任期五年半。在徐佳音牧师任期内,教会在经济上逐渐独立。徐佳音牧师于1991年底辞职,一直到1992年冬天许万常牧师上任,其间大约有一年的时间没有传道人,主要由同工负责教会事工,讲员的供应则由休斯敦、达拉斯的中国教会以及当地美国教会支援。在许牧师上任后积极推动下,拉拔克华人教会终于在1993年成为经济上独立的教会。
