信仰宣言 (Statement of Faith)

中华创造科学协会信仰宣言 (Chinese Creation Science Association Statement of Faith) 

(See English version below)

圣经是神的话,其原稿中的每个字句都是神所默示的,完全无误。圣经所陈述的都是事实上真确的。圣经在它论及的一切方面都是准确的和权威的,包括信仰、行为、历史和自然科学。

物质的(质-能-时-空)宇宙和其中万物都是神所创造的。神用超自然的方式直接创造了宇宙,所用的时间是六天,即字义的、正常长度的、按照地球时间测量的、连续的六日,其中没有任何时间间隔、之前也没有任何时间阶段。经文教导说:人类和整个宇宙的起源都是在不太遥远的过去。

各样类型(类别)的生物都是神在那六天中直接和超自然地创造的。随后发生过变异和退化,然而都是在初造的各样类型的有限范围之内。从未出现过本质上全新的类型,也从未有过一个类型的生命形式发生根本改变、成为另一类型之事。

在创世的第六天,神直接和超自然地创造了最初两个人。亚当是从尘土而来,夏娃是从亚当的肋骨而来,都是按照神的形象所造。所有的人类都是最初这一对夫妇的后代。

作为两位人类始祖选择犯罪(堕落)的后果,全部被造物都被神咒诅、有了本质的改变。身体和灵性死亡进入世界,都是堕落的结果。

《创世记》所记载的挪亚的洪水是真实的历史事件;它的范围和影响覆盖全球,也是解释多数地质记录的关键。

生物学、地质学、天文学和其它自然科学中的实际事实,当被正确理解的时候,都与圣经中神所默示的陈述协调一致。科学或其它学科理论中凡与圣经有绝对的、不可调和的冲突的主张,都是有错的。

虽然人有可能成为基督徒,蒙恩得救,却并不理解或认可以上提到的真理,但这些真理是一切圣经教义的基础,包括福音本身。

我们是一个福音派基督徒的组织。我们相信一个真神,是自有永有的三个位格;我们相信圣经的无误、默示和权威;我们相信身体和灵性的死亡是堕落的后果;我们相信人类从亚当继承了罪性;我们相信耶稣基督是神的儿子,他道成肉身、从童贞女所生、过了无罪的一生、行了神迹奇事、在十字架上被钉死作为赎罪祭、身体复活、升天、还要再来;我们相信人类对神犯了罪、因此与神隔绝、被神公正地定罪、本应在地狱里永久地、有知觉地为罪遭受惩罚;我们相信得救、即被免去为罪遭受公正刑罚的唯一道路是悔改和相信耶稣基督,因此接受转嫁的义,即基督的义被神算为我们的;我们相信拯救完全是基于神的恩典、与人的行为或功德无关;我们相信得救的人将会永远在新天新地里、在荣耀之身中与神同在,享受永生。

Chinese Creation Science Association Statement of Faith

The Bible is the word of God, verbally and plenarily inspired and inerrant in the original autographs.  Its assertions are factually true.  It is accurate and authoritative in all it says, including in matters of faith, conduct, history and natural science.

The physical (mass-energy-time-space) universe and everything in it was directly, supernaturally created by God in six literal, normal length, consecutive days as measured on earth.  These six days were not preceded by or interspersed with any other time periods. Scripture teaches a recent origin for man and the whole creation.

All types (kinds) of living things were directly, supernaturally created by God during those six days.  Subsequently, variation and decay has occurred within the limits of those originally created types, but no fundamentally new types of life forms have arisen, nor has there been a fundamental change from one type of life form into another.

On the sixth day of creation, the first two human beings were directly, supernaturally created, Adam from dust and Eve from Adam’s rib, in God’s image. All humans are descendants of this original pair.

As a consequence of the first two humans’ choice to sin (the Fall), the entire creation was cursed by God and fundamentally changed.  Death, both physical and spiritual, entered the world after and as a result of the Fall.

Noah’s flood as described in Genesis was an actual historical event, global in extent and impact, and essential to the explanation of much of the geological record.

The actual facts of biology, geology, astronomy and the other natural sciences, when properly understood, are congruent with the inspired statements of the Bible.  Assertions of scientific or other theories which are in absolute, irreconcilable contradiction with the Bible are incorrect.

Although it is possible to be a Christian and attain salvation without understanding and affirming the truths listed above, these truths are foundational to all biblical doctrines, including the Gospel itself.

We are an organization of evangelical Christians. We believe: in one God eternally existent in three Persons; in the inerrancy, inspiration and authority of the Bible; in physical and spiritual death as consequences of the Fall; in the inheritance of a sinful nature from Adam; in the incarnation, virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, death on the cross as an atoning sacrifice, physical resurrection, ascension, and second coming of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; humans have sinned against God, and because of sin are separated from God and justly condemned to suffer eternal, conscious punishment for sin in hell; the only way to be saved from the just penalty of sin is to repent and believe in Jesus Christ, thereby receiving imputed righteousness; this salvation is completely by grace, apart from any human works or merit; the saved will live forever in glorified bodies with God in the new heavens and new earth.
