STATEMENT OF FAITH

Asia Seminary for Ministry affirms a core confession of convictions in common with the creeds of the early church and with the confessions of the Reformation, especially with that of the Westminster Assembly. The chief tenets are as follows:

  1. We believe that the sixty-six canonical books of the Holy Bible in the original languages are given by divine, verbal and plenary inspiration of God and thus are inerrant and infallible for faith and practice.
  2. We believe in the One and Only Triune God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – equal in power, glory and majesty, that He is holy, loving, wise, almighty and just, and that       He created all things out of nothing, sustains, provides, protects, rules and judges all.
  3. We believe that God created man in His own image for fellowship with Himself and to carry out the creation mandate, and that through the disobedience of the first man, Adam, the entire human race is alienated from God, depraved and totally lost.
  4. We believe that Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, made the perfect atonement for sin through His death as a propitiatory and substitutionary sacrifice, that through His bodily resurrection, He provides justification, that through His ascension to the right Hand of God, He continues His ministry of intercession, and that through His personal, visible and pre-millennial return in power and glory, He will fulfill all God’s purposes for mankind and angelic and demonic forces.
  5. We believe that salvation is the gift of God offered by His Grace and is received by man only through personal repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior.
  6. We believe in the Holy Spirit, as Person and God, that to the sinner, He convicts of sin and regenerates, and that to the believer and the church, He indwells, reveals truth, guides, sanctifies and comforts.
  7. We believe in the bodily resurrection and final judgments of the just and unjust, the eternal blessedness of the just and the eternal conscious punishment of the unjust.
