DOCTRINAL STATEMENT

As a Fellowship, we believe in:

  1. The divine inspiration and entire trustworthiness of Holy Scripture, as originally given, and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
  2. The unity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the Godhead.
  3. The universal sinfulness and guilt of all people since the fall, rendering them subject to Gods wrath and redemption.
  4. Redemption from the guilt, penalty, dominion and pollution of sin, solely through the sacrificial death (as our Representative and substitute) of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Son of God.
  5. The bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead and His ascension to the right hand of God.
  6. The presence and power of the Holy Spirit in the work of regeneration.
  7. The justification of the sinner by the grace of God through faith alone.
  8. The indwelling work of the Holy Spirit in the believer.
  9. The one holy, universal Church, which is the Body of Christ and to which all believers belong.
  10. The expectation of the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Partners of the Christian Medical Fellowship of South Africa must declare their faith in these principles.
