I believe in the triune God. "Trinity" is a communal description of the fellowship and
oneness of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. As written in 2 Cor. 13:14, I experience the
triune God. I often call on God's name not distinguishing three divine persons. The Creator is
like the father of the prodigal son who never gives up on us; the Savior Jesus Christ is our
healer and liberator; and the Holy Spirit is the tangible presence of God among us.
I believe that the Gospel is the good and urgent news about God's salvation for
humanity. The Gospel is the story of Jesus himself as shown in his life, death, and
resurrection. Through Christ, God's reconciling act is shown and accomplished. The Gospel
is both a gift from God and a challenge for humanity. It requires a response from humanity.
Sin may be a cultural concept. In Christianity, sin primarily has to do with human
disobedience that destroys the relationships among God, humanity, and creation. Sin is not
only about human deeds. It is also a human condition or a certain power in which we live.
There are no big or little sins. Sin is sin. It results in "death," the antithesis of "life."
I believe that salvation means the restoration of right relationships among God,
humanity, and God's creation. Salvation was achieved by Jesus Christ when he died on the
cross on behalf of us. In a sense, salvation is to build up the kingdom of God "on earth as it
is in heaven." God works to fulfill God's purpose for humanity in the world here and now.
I believe that "the faith of Jesus Christ" is a saving grace of God. It is given to us
through the Holy Spirit. It comes with the good news and it leads to salvation. Yet, we need
to work on our own salvation with the help of the Holy Spirit. Christians live in a tension
because salvation is accomplished by Jesus but will be completed on the day of his coming.
I believe that the church is the body of Christ that has been empowered by the Holy
Spirit. I experience the church as "mother" who gives birth to, nurtures, and always waits for
me. The church's obligation is to spread the good news and to bear witness to the salvation
0 E -AD ,p
that has been revealed in Jesus, in wor is and in deeds. The scope of the church's work
embraces the whole of human life.
I believe that the Sacraments are the visible signs instituted by God. They teach that our
salvation comes through the sacrifice of Jesus. Baptism especially tells us that we die with Christ
in our baptism and we will resurrect as Jesus did on the last day. Communion celebrates the grace
that we have become brothers and sisters through Christ's sacrifice. We as one body have made a
covenant with God.
I believe in the Christian hope that: Jesus Christ is coming. Though we may be disappointed
with our sufferings and hardships, we will finally enjoy the triumph of God, because Christ has
already overcome death. Humanity is heading to the end of time, but there always has been
waiting, yearning, moaning, suffering, peace, and salvation. Life is a journey for the eternity.
Eschatology, therefore, must be rooted i -I present reality. Christians should be faithful in living,
believing, and hoping that God is working in and among us.
