信仰声明

Adopted by the HSU 校董会 on November 3, 2022

经过多次祈祷和仔细考虑, this 信仰声明 humbly and thoughtfully memorializes the sincere historically held religious beliefs of Hardin-Simmons大学. The institution remains committed to providing excellence in education enlightened by Christian faith and values.

我们渴望像上帝爱我们一样去爱每一个人. Hardin-Simmons will continue to welcome students from diverse backgrounds and experiences and encourage them to pursue excellence in education and grow in the knowledge and practice of 神’s Word expressed in the Holy Bible.

This 信仰声明 directs all facets of the governance, 政府, 管理, 操作, 以及学校的就业实践. While we want students to become knowledgeable of world views and perspectives on faith and life, the education and discipleship provided to students by the university must advance our Vision and Mission and not conflict with this 信仰声明.

耶稣基督

我们相信耶稣基督, 道成肉身, 完全的神和完全的人, who died for us and was raised from the dead and ascended into heaven. Christ’s return will complete 神’s redemptive mission. 耶稣基督 is the only mediator between 神 and humanity.

我们相信独一又真又活的神, 创造天地的主, 显现在三个人身上:父亲, 儿子, 和圣灵. 神 is all powerful, all present, and all knowing. 神必永远掌权. 神就是爱.

圣灵

我们相信圣灵, 助手, 上帝与我们同在, 谁教导我们,带领我们在信心上成长. We receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon us.

圣经

We believe that the Bible is the divinely inspired authority for life and faith. The Bible is 神’s word and accomplishes His purpose, does not return empty, and will stand forever.

约书亚1:8, 诗篇119:11, 诗篇119:105, 以赛亚书40:8, 以赛亚书55:10-11, 约翰6:63, 约翰福音, 提摩太后书3:16, 罗马福音15:4, 帖撒罗尼迦前书2:13, 希伯来书4:12, 彼得后书1:20-21, 启示22:18-19

人类

We believe that humans were created in the image of 神. Humankind disobeyed 神 and fell from a sinless state when tempted by Satan. 因为所有人都有罪, they are separated from 神 and stand in need of rescue and redemption. Because of His great love, 神 provided a way for humanity to be put right with him. The death and resurrection of 耶稣基督 provide for rescue and redemption from sin.

救恩

We believe that 救恩 is a gift that comes by grace through faith in 耶稣基督.

教会

We believe that the church was instituted by Jesus and that he is the head of the church. The church is the gathered community of believers built together for 神 by the Spirit and serving as the body of Christ in the world. The church is called to be Christ’s ambassadors and given the ministry of reconciliation.

马太福音16:18, 马修28:18-20, 徒2:46-47, 徒20:28, 罗马人12:4-5, 哥林多前书3:16, 哥林多前书12:12-31, 哥林多后书5:11-21, 以弗所书2:19-22, 以弗所书4:14-16, 腓立比书2:1-11, 歌罗西书1:18, 希伯来书10:24-25, 彼得前书2:4-10

We believe that 神 created the human race with two genetic sexes, male and female.

创世纪1:27,创世纪5:2,马可福音10:6

婚姻

We believe that marriage has been established by 神 to be a life-long, covenant relationship between one genetic male and one genetic female. We also believe that sexual activity is intended by 神 to be expressed solely in the context of a loving marriage between one genetic male and one genetic female.

友善与尊重

We believe that every person has been fearfully and wonderfully made by 神 and should be afforded love, 善良, 同情和尊严.

*Fearfully when translated from the Hebrew means with great reverence, heart-felt interest, with respect. (诗篇139:14)

Why did the 校董会 write a statement of faith?
The members of the 校董会 are stewards of the vision and mission of the university, responsible for governing by setting policy and providing direction to the President to follow in leading the organization.  We believe that a clearly defined statement of faith provides an essential point of reference for the fulfillment of these responsibilities.

为什么要有信仰宣言?
Hardin-Simmons大学’s 信仰声明 clearly states the Christian beliefs that undergird and inform the university’s vision and mission, and highlights the principles that define what we envision in providing “excellence in education enlightened by Christian faith and values.”

The 信仰声明 provides guidance to the university’s administrative leaders as they make decisions that impact every aspect of the institution. It also offers inspiration and a foundational point of reference to our faculty as they educate students and develop the next generation of leaders, as well as to our staff who provide the platforms that facilitate learning.

为什么现在出版《中国赌博平台》?
As the nation’s cultural context changes in ways that with increasing frequency conflict with historic Christian teaching, we believe it is important that we expressly proclaim our beliefs earnestly and transparently as a university committed to providing excellence in education enlightened by Christian faith and values, as has been our purpose from inception of the university.
