We Believe

The River of Grace is an International Christian Church in Beijing.

We believe in one God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons – the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is loving, completely holy and just.

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is inspired and is 100% accurate. It is applicable to our every day life and is the final authority in our faith.

We believe that sin has separated us all from God, and that only through Jesus Christ can we be reconciled to God.

We believe that Jesus Christ is God. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He led a sinless life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again. Today, He is seated at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Mediator.

We believe that salvation is the gift of God to man. We believe that in order to receive this gift which is the ‘new birth’ we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.

We believe that our eternal destination of either Heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe at the moment of death, those who trust in Christ for salvation are immediately in his presence.

We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptized in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Holy Communion is a celebration of Jesus’ death and our remembrance of Him.

We believe that the Holy Spirit is our Comforter. He guides us in all areas of our lives. He also blesses us with spiritual gifts to be used for his glory, and empowers us to yield the fruit of the Spirit.

We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and flourishing lives that will impact and help others.

We believe that we are called to preach the gospel to all nations.

We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again just as He promised.
