The Seed Christian Fellowship

Belief Statement

We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son
and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Matthew 28:19)

We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the
Virgin  Mary.  Jesus  died  on  the  cross,  as  atonement for  our  sins  according  to  the  Scriptures,  and  ascended  into
heaven where He is at the right hand of God and is our High Priest and Advocate. (John 1:1; Hebrews 2:14; 7:25-
26; Luke 1:34-35; 1 Corinthians 15:3; 20:24–29; Acts 1:1–9; Colossians 3:1; 1 John2:1; Philippians 2:5–7).

We  believe  that  the  Person  and  the  work  of  the  Holy  Spirit  is  to  glorify  the  Lord  Jesus  Christ.    The  Holy  Spirit
works  in  our  lives  by  indwelling,  convicting,  guiding,  instructing,  and  empowering  us  to  live  Godly  lives.    The
Holy Spirit fills us with the Fruit of the Spirit; love,  joy, peace,  patience, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness,  and
self-control as we grow spiritually.  The Holy Spirit gives us spiritual gifts to build up the Kingdom of God. (John
3:5–8; 14:26, 16:14, 18; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11; Ephesians 4:11-13; 5:18–21; Galatians 5:22-23;  Romans 12:3-8; I
Peter 4:10-11).

We believe the  Holy Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in
the  original  writings,  the  complete  revelation  of  God’s  will  for  the  salvation  of  humankind,    and  the divine  and
final authority for all Christian faith and life. (2 Timothy 3:16–17; John 14:26; 16:12–15)

We believe that the church is composed of all people who confess their faith in Jesus Christ through the power of
the  Holy  Spirit  and  are  united  together  in  the  Body  of  Christ.  Jesus  is  Lord  and  the  Head  of  the  church.
(Colossians 1: 18–22).

We  believe  in  two  Sacraments,  Baptism  and  the  Lord’s  Supper,  as  means  of  God’s  grace.    In  baptism,  we are
buried with Christ and raised into a new life,  we are engrafted into the  body of Christ, washed clean of our sins
and  are  filled  with  the  Holy  Spirit.  In  the  Sacrament  of  the  Lord’s  Supper,  we  believe  that  Christ  is spiritually
present as we celebrate this means of grace. (Matthew 28:19–20; 1 Corinthians 11:23–26).

We believe that humanity was created in the image of God but fell into sin (Genesis 3) and is therefore separated
from God. Scripture teaches “that all have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory and “that we are saved by grace
through  faith.”  Only  through  this  irresistible  grace  of  the  Holy  Spirit  and  confession  of  faith  can  salvation  and
eternal  life  be  obtained  By  Christ’s  atoning  sacrifice  and  resurrection  we  are  justified  and  become  children  of
God. (Genesis 1:27; Romans 5:12–21; John 3:5–8; Hebrews 9:22–28; Romans 4:25; John 1:10–13; 3:5–8).

We  believe  that  Jesus  Christ  died  for  our  sins,  rose  from  the  dead,  and  will  come  again.  This  assurance  is  our
“Blessed  Hope”  and  has  a  vital  bearing  on  our  personal  life  and  service  for  Christ  and  His  church.    Through
Christ’s resurrection all believers are  given  eternal life and everlasting joy with the Lord.   (1 Corinthians 15:51–
53; 1 Thessalonians 4:13–18; Titus 2:11–14).
