A question Christians often are asked is: "What do you believe?" Though, in all honesty, it's a question we could ask any of us. With such a significant question we want to have a coffee and talk about it....but for the moment here's a brief summary. This is what we believe as Yale Chi Alpha Christian fellowship:
Our beliefs can be summarized simply:
God is real.
God has revealed Himself in Jesus.
The Bible is God’s word.
God is still moving today.
God ought to be the most important thing in every person’s life.
These beliefs can be described as orthodox, Protestant, and Pentecostal.
By orthodox, we mean that we affirm the historic declarations of the Christian faith: specifically the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed.
By Protestant, we mean that we believe the Bible is trustworthy and we believe that faith requires personal commitment – no one is born a Christian.
By Pentecostal, we mean that we believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit includes miracles, and this is an important part of the life of the church. We’re sponsored by the Assemblies of God, the world’s largest Pentecostal denomination (although we welcome students from all backgrounds).
