Statement of Faith
- The Trinity
The Board, faculty, administration and staff at Yuin University possess an active and visible Christian faith which encourages the entire campus community in our pursuit of a wholesome and practical Christian life. We personally trust in and collectively bear witness to the one, eternal God, revealed as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14; John 4:24)
- God the Father
We believe in God the Father who created the heavens and the earth. We believe in God the Son, Jesus Christ, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. Jesus suffered, died and was buried. He rose from the dead. Jesus ascended into heaven and remains with the Father and the Holy Spirit to judge the living and the dead. Jesus Christ alone is the way, the truth and the life. There is salvation in and through no other. (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:20-21; 1 Cor. 2:13)
- The Holy Spirit
We believe in God the Holy Spirit who is the comforter, sustainer and sanctifier of all who profess faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. (Rom. 8:9; 1 Cor. 12:12-14; Eph. 1:13-14, Gal. 5:22-25)
We believe that humanity has hope for redemption from sin by Jesus Christ’s life, death and resurrection. It is by God’s grace alone that we joyfully receive our salvation through a personal faith in Jesus Christ. (Eph. 2:8-10; Tit. 2:11-14)
- Revelation, Scripture and Authority
We believe that the Bible is God’s revealed Word. It is authoritative and infallible in all matters of faith and practice. (Ps. 19:1-6; Heb. 1:1-2; John 17:17)
- The Church
We believe that the Church is the body of Christ and God’s witness in the world. (Eph. 1:22-23, 5:25-27; 1 Cor. 12:12-14)
- Our Destiny
We believe that Jesus Christ will return and claim his own, ushering in the new heaven and new Earth in which righteousness will dwell and God will reign forever. (1 Thess. 4:13-18; Zech. 14:4-11; Rev. 20:6)
