Article 1. Name
The name of this fellowship should be Augusta Chinese Christian Fellowship (ACCF).
Article 2. Purpose
The purpose of this church is to glorify God. To this end it exists for: the worship and service of God; the teaching of His Word; the proclamation of His saving grace; the building up, fellowship, and discipline of those who believe the Son; the practice of holiness without which no one shall see God; and the rendering of compassionate service to all regardless of social class or race.
Article 3. Statement of Faith
We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments and that they are inspired of God, inerrant in the original writings, and of supreme and final authority in faith and life ( II Tim. 3:16; II Peter 1:21; Psalms 119:89; John 12:47-48; Rev. 22:19 ).
We believe in one God existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, coequal and eternal ( Gen. 1:1, 26-27; Isa. 44:6; Matt. 28:19; II Cor. 13:14; Deut. 6:4 ).
We believe that man was created in the Image of God, that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and in the case of those who reach moral responsibility, show themselves to be sinners in thought, word, and deed ( Gen. 1:27; Rom. 1:18, 3:23, 5:12; Psalms 51:5 ).
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true Man ( Matt. 1:18, 22-23; John 1:14; Phil. 2:6-7 ).
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood ( Rom. 5:8, 6:23; Eph. 2:8-9 ).
We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His Ascension in the heavens and in His present life there for us as High Priest and Advocate ( I Cor. 15:1-4; Acts 1:9; Heb. 7:22-25 ).
We believe in the blessed hope, the personal and visible return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to reign ( Acts 1:11; I Thess 3:13, 4:14-17; Rev. 19:7, 20:15 ).
We believe that all who are born again of the Holy Spirit receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ, and thereby become children of God ( John 1:12-13, 3:3, 5, 7 ).
We believe in the eternal security and everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the eternal conscious punishment of the lost ( John 3:16-18; I John 5:11-13; Rev. 20:15; Mark 9:48 ).
We believe that Christ instituted the ordinance of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper, to be observed until He comes ( Matt. 26:26-29; I Cor. 11:23-26; Matt. 28:19-20 ).
