序言

信仰宣言, 有时被称为信仰的告白, 是一个特殊社区对宗教信仰的描述. 这是一份关于社区或机构核心宗教紧张关系的声明. 信仰宣言 is not intended to 状态 in detail specific policies but is intended to inform of the basis for its policies and expectations.

自1911年成立以来,博彩平台一直与南卡罗来纳浸信会(SCBC)有关系. SCBC支持和肯定的南方浸信会会议 浸信会信仰与讯息2000 (BFM2000)*. 大学的信仰声明与BFM2000一致, 然而,这是博彩平台的一个特别的特点,因为它与SCBC有着不同的关系.  We believe that the University’s Statement is also in accord with Scripture and general Christian beliefs across time and throughout the world, 主要是在福音派的基督教表达中.  这种对信仰的理解提供了博彩平台教育, 包括圣经研究的教学, 人类的知识, 人类文化.

大学的信仰声明是由高级领导重申的周期性, 并听取了基督教研究学院教师的意见, 并得到信托委员会的重申. 承认基督教徒的大学雇佣和工作人员, 他作为救主和主,与耶稣基督有个人关系, 他们尊重我,不相信大学的信仰声明. 作为雇佣条件, 个人可能会对博彩平台的信仰陈述有信心, but employees must genuinely respect the Statement’s tenets and behave in ways that do not contradict or undermine those tenets.  Students are not required to be confes罪g Christians but must agree to respect and comply with the University’s Policies and conduct expectations. 

博彩平台的教师家庭, 工作人员, 学生来自不同的文化, 种族, 教派, 以及非教派的做法. 本声明指引大学的管治, 领导, 和文化, but it is not to be confused with or required as a personal faith 状态ment of individuals as a condition of employment or admission as a student.

该声明

 

我们相信一位又真又活的神, 谁是永恒存在的父亲, 儿子, 圣灵——本质上是一样的,但内心却是肮脏的. 在上帝面前,简单而永恒,所有美好、真理和美丽的完美. He created the heavens and earth from nothing by his sovereign will and sustains and 政府erns them by his almighty power and love. 他在创造的秩序中揭示了他自己和他的真理, 在圣经中, 并至为在耶稣基督里. (Genesis 1:1; Exodus 3:14; 6:2-3; 15:11ff; 20:1ff; Leviticus 22:2; Deuteronomy 6:4; 32:6; 1 Chronicles 29:10; Psalm 19:1-3; Isaiah 43:3,15; 64:8; Jeremiah 10:10; 17:13; Matthew 6:9ff; 7:11; 23:9; 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; John 4:24; 5:26; 14:6-13; 17:1-8; Acts 1:7; Romans 8:14-15; 1 Corinthians 8:6; Galatians 4:6; Ephesians 4:6; Colossians 1:15; 1 Timothy 1:17; Hebrews 11:6; 12:9; 1 Peter 1:17; 1 John 5:7).

耶稣基督

我们相信耶稣基督是神的儿子,道成肉身. 他是天父永恒所生的儿子, who in the fullness of time took to himself a complete human nature – body and soul – uniting divinity and humanity in one person for the salvation of the world. 他是由圣灵怀的孕, 圣母玛利亚所生, 过着无罪的生活, 作为赎罪祭而死, 第三天身体复活, 升入天堂. 就是现在,他也为他的百姓代求, 总有一天,他会回来审判活人死人,消灭他永恒的王国. (Genesis 18:1ff; Psalms 2:7ff; 110:1ff; Isaiah 7:14; Isaiah 53:1-12; Matthew 1:18-23; 3:17; 8:29; 11:27; 14:33; 16:16,27; 17:5; 27; 28:1-6,19; Mark 1:1; 3:11; Luke 1:35; 4:41; 22:70; 24:46; John 1:1-18,29; 10:30,38; 11:25-27; 12:44-50; 14:7-11; 16:15-16,28; 17:1-5, 21-22; 20:1-20,28; Acts 1:9; 2:22-24; 7:55-56; 9:4-5,20; Romans 1:3-4; 3:23-26; 5:6-21; 8:1-3,34; 10:4; 1 Corinthians 1:30; 2:2; 8:6; 15:1-8,24-28; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21; 8:9; Galatians 4:4-5; Ephesians 1:20; 3:11; 4:7-10; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:13-22; 2:9; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; 3:16; Titus 2:13-14; Hebrews 1:1-3; 4:14-15; 7:14-28; 9:12-15,24-28; 12:2; 13:8; 1 Peter 2:21-25; 3:22; 1 John 1:7-9; 3:2; 4:14-15; 5:9; 2 John 7-9; Revelation 1:13-16; 5:9-14; 12:10-11; 13:8; 19:16).

圣灵

我们相信圣灵是赐生命的主, 三位一体中的第三位, 永远从圣父和圣子而来的. 他是父和子差来住在信徒里面的, 赋予他们圣洁的力量, 并装备他们去服务和见证. (Genesis 1:2; Judges 14:6; Job 26:13; Psalms 51:11; 139:7ff; Isaiah 61:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; Matthew 1:18; 3:16; 4:1; 12:28-32; 28:19; Mark 1:10,12; Luke 1:35; 4:1,18-19; 11:13; 12:12; 24:49; John 4:24; 14:16-17,26; 15:26; 16:7-14; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4,38; 4:31; 5:3; 6:3; 7:55; 8:17, 39; 10:44; 13:2; 15:28; 16:6; 19:1-6; Romans 8:9-11,14-16, 26-27; 1 Corinthians 2:10-14; 3:16; 12:3-11,13; Galatians 4:6; Ephesians 1:13-14; 4:30; 5:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:19; 1 Timothy 3:16; 4:1; 2 Timothy 1:14; 3:16; Hebrews 9:8,14; 2 Peter 1:21; 1 John 4:13; 5:6-7; Revelation 1:10; 22:17).

圣经与信经

我们相信圣经的第六卷是上帝的精神所鼓舞的, 没有错误, and are the sole supreme and final authority under 神 for Christian belief and life; 耶稣基督 is the focus of divine revelation. 在基督和圣经的授权下,Creeds和忏悔陈述是对共同信仰的表达. (Exodus 24:4; Deuteronomy 4:1-2; 17:19; Joshua 8:34; Psalms 19:7-10; 119:11, 89, 105, 140; Isaiah 34:16; 40:8; Jeremiah 15:16; 36:1-32; Matthew 5:17-18; 22:29; Luke 21:33; 24:44-46; John 5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17; Acts 2:16ff.; 17:11; Romans 15:4; 16:25-26; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 1:19-21)

人类

我们相信人的存在是上帝的特殊创造, 以他自己的形象和样式, 也是他创造的最高成就. 一开始, 人类的罪是无辜的,由上帝的自由选择所孕育, 然而,选择违背上帝的罪,把罪恶和死亡带入人类的种族. 因此, 除了耶稣基督,所有人都来到这个被罪诅咒的世界,需要救赎. 只有上帝, 以他的恩典, 可以带一个进入他神圣的伙伴,使一个能够实现上帝的创造性目的. 人类人格的神圣本质证明了上帝在自己的形象中创造了人类, and in that Christ died for humanity; therefore, 每一场比赛和每一项比赛都有充分的尊严和值得尊重的爱.

我们相信上帝, 以他的形象, 像男性和女性一样创造了人性,耶稣证实了这个事实. 在圣经教导的基础上,与当时盛行的基督教的巨大主体结合在一起, we affirm that marri年龄 between one man and one woman is the only proper context for 性ual intimacy and that abstinence should be observed in 罪gleness. (Genesis 1:26-30; 2:5, 7, 18-22; 3; 9:6; Psalms 1; 8:3-6; 32:1-5; 51:5; Isaiah 6:5; Jeremiah 17:5; Matthew 16:26; Matthew 19:4-5; Mark 10:6-8; Acts 17:26-31; Romans 1:19-32; 3:10-18, 23; 5:6, 12, 19; 6:6; 7:14-25; 8:14-18,29; 1 Corinthians 1:21-31; 15:19, 21-22; Ephesians 2:1-22; Colossians 1:21-22; 3:9-11).

撒旦

我们相信撒旦的存在, 罪, 还有邪恶的力量, 所有这些都是上帝通过死亡和耶稣基督复活所战胜的. (Genesis 3:1-5; Job 1:6-12; Zechariah 3:1-2; Matthew 4:1-11; 16:23; Mark 1:12-13; Luke 4:1-13; 22:1-6; John 8:44; 10:10; Acts 5:3; Romans 16:20; 2 Corinthians 11:3; 12:7-10; Ephesians 6:11-16; James 4:7; 1 Peter 5:8-9; 1 John 3:8; Revelation 12:1ff; 20:1-6).

救赎

我们相信耶稣基督死于世界上所有的罪. His suffering and death on the cross and his resurrection from the dead were for all peoples and provide the only redemption from 罪. (Genesis 3:15; Exodus 3:14-17; 6:2-8; Matthew 1:21; Luke 1:68-69; 2:28-32; John 1:29; Acts 4:12; Romans 1:16-18; 3:23-25; 5:8-10; Galatians 3:13; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:1-3; 5:8-9; 9:24-28).

恩典救赎

我们相信,所有敢于接受耶稣基督的人,就像救世主和上帝“重生”一样, 再次, 或重生),从而成为上帝的孩子, 并且有能力超越对神的属灵的敬拜. 救恩是唯独借着信靠神的恩典. 人不能靠行义得救, 但行义是圣灵的产物. (Matthew 16:21-26; John 1:11-14; 3:3-21, 36; 5:24; 10:28-29; Acts 2:21; 15:11; 16:30-31; Romans 4:3ff; 10:9-10, 13; 1 Corinthians 1:18; 15:10; 2 Corinthians 5:17-20; Galatians 6:15; Ephesians 2:8-22; Revelation 3:20).

转换

We believe that authentic Christian life begins with conversion to 耶稣基督 which involves repentance and faith in Him; conversion to Christ results in justification (forgiveness) and sanctification (growth in holiness). 这些天赋不是挣来的,也不是继承来的. (Matthew 4:17; John 10:9; 15:1-16; John 17:17; Acts 17:30-31; 20:32; Romans 2:4; 6:1-23; 8:1-18; 13:11-14; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Galatians 2:20; 5:22-25; Ephesians 4:11-16; Philippians 2:12-13; Colossians 1:9-22; 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24; 2 Timothy 1:12; Titus 2:11-14; Hebrews 11:1-12:8; James 2:14-26; 1 Peter 1:2-23; 1 John 1:6-2:11; Revelation 21:1-22:5).

教会

我们相信那一个, 神圣的, 普世教会是“基督的身体”,“那些相信并接受耶稣基督作为救世主和主的人. 教会是耶稣基督为神的子民所建立的, 基督的身体和新娘, 和圣灵的殿. 通用, 或不可见的, 教会不分种族,由所有真正的信徒组成, 性别, 年龄 or station in life; the visible church is the local expression of this people of 神 in particular congregations of believers. The mission of the church is to make disciples of all nations by proclaiming the good news (the Gospel) of 耶稣基督 and by faithfully administering the Lord’s ordinances and discipline. 教会的目的是荣耀神,因为他在言语和行为上都重新任命了人, 传福音, 服务, 关爱创造, 关心所有的人, 尤其是穷人和有需要的人. (Matthew 16:15-19; 18:15-20; Acts 2:41-42, 47; 5:11-14; 6:3-6; 13:1-3; 14:23, 27; 15:1-30; 16:5; 20:28; Romans 1:7; 1 Corinthians 1:2; 3:16; 5:4-5; 7:17; 9:13-14; 12; Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; 3:8-11, 21; 5:22-32; Philippians 1:1; Colossians 1:18; Hebrews 11:39-40; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Revelation 2-3; 21:2-3).

浸信会的信仰

我们相信地方教会的自主权, 政教分离, 福音派和教育委员会之间的自愿合作. We believe in freedom of conscience from 政府ernment domination or control and in the liberty and competency of every Christian believer to interpret Scripture, 与基督的全身交谈, 并直接向上帝祷告. 我们相信信徒和主的晚餐洗礼的安排. (Matthew 3:13-17; 26:26-30; 28:19-20; Mark 1:9-11; 14:22-26; Luke 3:21-22; 22:19-20; John 3:23; Acts 2:41-42; 8:35-39; 16:30-33; 20:7; Romans 6:3-5; 1 Corinthians 10:16,21; 11:23-29; Colossians 2:12).

主的再来和最后的事

我们相信耶稣基督会再来, 就我个人而言, 明显, 和意外, 用力量和荣耀让所有的死人复活, 审判人民和国家, 把撒旦和他的追随者打入地狱, 拯救所有凭信心相信耶稣基督的人, 使他的国度得以成就. (Isaiah 2:4; 11:9; Matthew 16:27; 18:8-9; 19:28; 24:27 ,30, 36, 44; 25:31-46; 26:64; Mark 8:38; 9:43-48; Luke 12:40, 48; 16:19-26; 17:22-37; 21:27-28; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:11; 17:31; Romans 14:10; 1 Corinthians 4:5; 15:24-28, 35-58; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Philippians 3:20-21; Colossians 1:5; 3:4; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18; 5:1ff; 2 Thessalonians 1:7ff; 2; 1 Timothy 6:14; 2 Timothy 4:1, 8; Titus 2:13; Hebrews 9:27-28; James 5:8; 2 Peter 3:7ff; 1 John 2:28; 3:2; Jude 14; Revelation 1:18; 3:11; 20:1-22:13).
