Sharing Christ Internationally



Sharing Christ Internationally (SCI)

Doctrinal basis

The doctrinal basis of SCI is the basic truth of Christianity as revealed in Holy Scripture, including:

a. The unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in the Godhead.

b. The sovereignty of God in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgment.

c. The divine inspiration and infallibility of Holy Scripture as originally given, and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

d. The universal sinfulness and guilt of human nature since the Fall, rendering man subject to God's wrath and condemnation.

e. The full deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God; his virgin birth and his real and sinless humanity; his death on the cross, his bodily resurrection and his present reign in heaven and earth.

f. Redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only through the sacrificial death once and for all time of our representative and substitute, Jesus Christ, the only mediator between God and man.

g. Justification as God's act of undeserved mercy, in which the sinner is pardoned all his sins, and accepted as righteous in God's sight, only because of the righteousness of Christ imputed to him, this justification being received by faith alone.

h. The need for the Holy Spirit to make the work of Christ effective to the individual sinner, granting him repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ.

i. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit in all those thus regenerated, producing in them an increasing likeness to Christ in character and behaviour, and empowering them for their witness in the world.

j. The only holy universal Church, which is the Body of Christ, and to which all true believers belong.

k. The future personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge all men, executing God's just condemnation on the impenitent and receiving the redeemed to eternal glory.

Important Note

  • All who are whole heartedly in fellowship with SCI, should personally believe,
    teach and follow the above “doctrinal basis”, and should have it as a life practice
    to believe, teach and eschew all that is deviant from this. Where such a person is
    in ministry to others, the extent to which they hold to or deviate from this statement
    is determined by what they do and say to the people amongst whom they minister.
  • It must be noted that point a.) “The unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit
    in the Godhead” can only mean that God is disparate from any traditional deity.
    Thus, the doctrines of all traditional religions are contrary to this doctrinal basis.
    This is particularly an issue in ministry to such as Mongolians, where "Christianity"
    is often presented in ways and terminology which has drawn the comment from
    the leading Mongolian Buddhist lama priests that:
    "These people claim to be Christians, but they are not. They are Buddhists...
    None of them are sincere Christians."
