Our Goal

Glorify God, Serve Others

Our Faith

  1. We believe in God the great I Am, who created everything in heaven and on earth, including human beings, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, God in three persons.
  2. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, born of the Virgin Mary by the Holy Spirit, being nailed and died on the cross to atone the sin of the world. He was resurrected from the dead, ascended into heaven, sitting at the right hand of the Most High, and will come back to judge the whole world.
  3. We believe in the deity of the Holy Spirit. His work is to regenerate, sanctify and dwell in the hearts of the believers for teaching and ministry.
  4. We believe in the inspiration and infallibility of the Bible as the Word of God and the only trustworthy guide of Christian faith and life.
  5. We believe in the salvation by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Every believer should be baptized to confess his faith, non-conformity to the world, and the practice of a scriptural discipline.
  6. We believe that Christ is the head of the Church, and the Church is the body of Christ, the household of God, including all born again believers.
  7. We believe that Jesus Christ will come back to establish the eternal kingdom. All people will be resurrected, those who believe in the Lord will be with God forever, whereas those who do not believe will suffer eternal punishment

A Brief History

Boston Chinese Church of Saving Grace was founded by Rev. and Mrs. Kenson Ho in August, 1985. On October 20 (Lord’s Day), of the same year, we held our first worship service in the facility of the Church of All Nations on Tremont Street, thus officially declared the birth of BCCSG. We met in the same facility for nine years until we moved into this building on October 9, 1994.

In the year of 1986, BCCSG established her first Deacon Board. Deacons were elected to help the pastor to promote the church ministries. Every board member is elected in a democratic way.

On February 1, 2002, we went through a fundamental change in our administration. Since we could not agree with the discrepancy between the teaching and the practice of church discipline of MCUSA, we terminated our affiliation with Lancaster Mennonite Conference and become an independent church. Now, we are a member of the Harvest Fellowship of Churches. (www.harvestfellowshipofchurches.org)

宗旨

榮耀神,服事人

本會信仰

  1. 相信 神是自有永有的,祂創造天地萬物和人,乃是聖父、聖子、聖靈三位一體獨一的神。
  2. 相信耶穌基督的神性,為聖父的獨生子,由童貞女馬利亞藉聖靈感孕道成肉身。祂被釘死於十架替人贖罪,並且身體從死裏復活、升天,坐在至高者的右邊,將來要再來審判世界。
  3. 相信聖靈的神性,任務在使人重生成聖,並定居於信徒心中作教導訓誨的工作。
  4. 相信聖經為 神所默示,是神的話,真實無訛,乃基督徒信仰與生活唯一準則。
  5. 相信凡憑信接受耶穌基督者,即得著 神所賜的救恩。相信者應受洗表示信心,不與世界同流合污,遵行聖經的教訓,過有紀律的教會生活。
  6. 相信基督是教會的元首,教會是基督的身體,是 神的家,包括所有重生得救的信徒。
  7. 相信耶穌基督必再來建立永世國度,將來世人都必復活,信祂的永遠 與神同在,不信的永遠沉淪滅亡。

簡史

波士頓基督教救恩堂乃於一九八五年八月由何健生牧師及師母領導下建立。於同年十月二十日(主日),借用天滿街的國際禮拜堂,舉行了第一次主日崇拜,正式成立了波士頓基督教救恩堂。此後每主日下午二時在該堂舉行主日崇拜,直到九年後,即一九九四年十月九日(主日)遷到自置的現址聚會。

自一九八六年起,本堂即成立了執事會,各人均由會友以民主方式選出,以協助牧者處理堂務。

在行政上,本堂於二零零二年二月一日起,產生基本的改變。本堂因未能認同「美國門諾會」在真理教導與執行教會紀律上互相矛盾,決定退出「門諾會蘭城議會」,成為獨立自主的教會。現為豐收教會團契的會員。(www.harvestfellowshipofchurches.org)
