What We Believe



South Tenerife Christian Fellowship is an Interdenominational Evangelical Church that seeks to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.The Church endeavours to fulfil Christ’s 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 Scriptures

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.

God

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.

Man

The creation of man(kind) in the image of God; the entrance of sin through Adam’s disobedience; the fallen and total depraved state of all men; their subjection to God’s wrath and condemnation; their responsibility to repent and believe the Gospel.

Justification

The justification of the sinner by God’s 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.

Christian Behaviour

The responsibility of all believers to obey and serve the Lord and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives.

Church Practise

In accordance with the New Testament teaching the following ordinances are taught and observed.

The Lord's Supper being a remembrance of Christ until He comes and a renewal of commitment to Him. All those who are saved by God’s 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 Lord’s 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
