Statement of Faith

 

Kalihi Union Church has the following statement of faith:

  1. We believe in the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as inspired by God and inerrant in the original writings, and as supreme and final authority in matters of faith and practice.          [II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 1:21]
  2. We believe in one God, infinite and perfect, revealed in the Word as three persons:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit.          [Matthew 28:19, Galatians 4:4-6]
  3. We believe in Jesus Christ who was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.          [Matthew 1:18, Luke 1:35, John 1:14]
  4. We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned and thereby suffered separation from God, involving both physical and spiritual death, and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature.          [Romans 3:23, 5:12, Mark 7:21-23, Jeremiah 17:9]
  5. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, thereby making complete atonement and that all who believe in Him are justified on the basis of His shed blood.          [Isaiah 53:6, II Corinthians 5:21, I Peter 2:24, I Corinthians 15:3, Mark 10:45]
  6. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord Jesus Christ, and in His ascension into Heaven to make intercession for us.          [Luke 24:6-7, Hebrews 4:14, 10:12, I Corinthians 15:4-8]
  7. We believe in the personal, visible return of our Lord Jesus Christ to consummate His Kingdom.          [Acts 1:11, Revelation 1:7]
  8. We believe that the Holy Spirit makes the work of Christ effective in the individual sinner, granting him repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ, and by His indwelling makes him a child of God, and enables him to live and grow in the Christian life.          [John 1:12-13, 3:3, 3:16, Romans 6:23, 8:5-29, I Peter 1:22-23]
  9. We believe that the Church universal is a spiritual fellowship of all true believers, the body of Jesus Christ, of which He is the Head, and to whom all believers are responsible.  The mission of the Church is the proclamation of the Gospel, the worship of God, and the gathering and perfection of the saints.          [Ephesians 1:3-6, 1:22-23, I Corinthians 12:12-14, Matthew 29:19-20]
  10. We believe in the resurrection of the dead, the just to eternal blessedness, and the unjust to eternal punishment.          [Romans 14:10, Revelation 20:12, 15, Matthew 25:46, John 3:36]
