About CCU – Statement of Faith – California Central University
The Revelation of the Scripture
We believe that the Holy Scripture (the Old Testament and the New Testament) is the inspired word of God which is the complete and sufficient revelation of the salvation for men.
We believe that God is one in His essential being but in this one being there are three persons, called, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We confess that the sovereign will of God and His predestination included election and reprobation.
We believe that all mankind has sinned and has a sinful nature. They are in total depravity and utterly indisposed disabled and made opposite to all that is good. The sinner is offered life and salvation through Jesus Christ alone.
Jesus Christ, the Son of God
We believe that Jesus Christ is truly God and truly man. He was crucified on the cross as a sacrifice for sinners. He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into Heaven and He is now our high priest and advocate.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit has personality. The applicative works of redemption of the Holy Spirit are calling, justification, sanctification and glorification. He guides, instructs and protects Jesus’ church and the believers, thus, He accomplishes the redemption of Christ.
Church of Christ
We believe that the true church is composed of all saints who had received salvation through the saving faith in Jesus Christ. The Church of God is united together in the body of Christ of which He is the head, in Him all saints have holy fellowship and communion. There are only two sacraments, which is the Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
The Last Day and the Second Coming of Jesus
We believe in the second coming of Jesus Christ. At that time, there will be the last judgment, in which the wicked, the unbelievers who reject Jesus’ offer of salvation, will be cast into hell and perish forever but the believers will enter the Kingdom of Heaven and have Eternal Life.
