DOCTRINAL STATEMENT:

 

We adhere to the following truths:

 

  • The divine inspiration and consequent authority of the whole canonical Scripture.
  • The doctrine of the trinity.
  • The fall of man, his consequent moral depravity, and his need for transformation.
  • The atonement through the substitutionary death of Christ.
  • The doctrine of justification by faith.
  • The resurrection of the body, both in the case of the just and the unjust.
  • The eternal life of the saved and the eternal punishment of the lost.

WYCLIFFE AFRICA BELIEVES:

 

  • The Bible is God’s message for people everywhere.
  • The message of the Bible is evangelistic and is the basis for church planting and growth.
  • The most effective means of communication is the mother tongue.
  • For a church to be truly indigenous, it must have the Bible in its mother tongue.
  • Bible translation is the task of the whole Church, and everyone can have a part.

THE ROLE OF THE CHURCH:

 

  • God wants everyone to have the opportunity to enter into eternal life through Jesus Christ, regardless of background or location.
  • God works through his Church to accomplish this, as the Holy Spirit empowers and directs members of the body to reach out to the world.
  • Each local church fellowship shares responsibility for the whole world, as well as its own locality, and all believers should be concerned about God’s worldwide purposes.
  • Local church leadership is responsible for the nurture of believers in its care, including pastoral guidance, the identification and confirmation of God’s call to individuals, and oversight of their training and equipping for service.
    • Mission agencies exist to serve the Church and to provide information, facilities, and expertise that would not normally be found within the resources of a local fellowship. This particularly applies to specialized ministries and oversight of work in distant areas.
