South Tenerife Christian Fellowship is an Interdenominational Evangelical Church that seeks to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Church endeavours to fulfil Christís Great Commission to go and teach the Word of God
and make disciples of all.
Whilst we welcome
all people to our Church, we hold to the following Bible doctrines and beliefs;
The verbal inspiration and total inerrancy of the Holy
Scriptures of the Old and New Testament as originally given by God; their
sole-sufficiency and final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
One God in three persons; the unity of the Godhead in the
Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, co-equal, co-eternal, sovereign and
active in creation, providence and redemption.
The Lord Jesus Christ
The essential deity and perfect humanity of our Lord Jesus
Christ, the only mediator between God and men; His virgin birth, sinless life
and sacrificial death on the Cross as the only substitute for sinners; His
burial, bodily resurrection and ascension to heaven; His present high priestly
ministry and personal return.
The Holy Spirit
The work of the Holy Spirit in regenerating the sinner and
indwelling, sanctifying and empowering the believer.
The creation of man(kind) in the image of God; the
entrance of sin through Adamís disobedience; the fallen and total depraved
state of all men; their subjection to Godís wrath and condemnation; their
responsibility to repent and believe the Gospel.
The justification of the sinner by Godís grace through
faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ and the eternal security of the believer.
The Future State
The unconditional immortality of the soul; the
resurrection of the body; the eternal joy in heaven of the believer; the
conscious eternal punishment in hell of those who die impenitent.
The responsibility of all believers to obey and serve the
Lord and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives.
In accordance with
the New Testament teaching the following ordinances are taught and observed.
The Lordís Supper being a remembrance of Christ
until He comes and a renewal of commitment to Him.
All those who are saved by Godís grace and love the Lord
Jesus Christ, are walking in fellowship with Him and living in a godly manner
with their neighbours are welcome to join with us around the Lordís Table.
The Baptism of Believers by total immersion upon
profession of their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and whose lives bear
evidence of their Christian profession. This as a symbol of their
identification with Him in His death, burial and resurrection.
