We believe that all Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instructions, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately—behaving honourably with personal integrity and moral courage]; so that the man of God may be complete and proficient, outfitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work, 2 Timothy 3: 16 - 17 [Amp].
The Council of African Independent Churches is a fellowship of Churches and Organizations which confess the Lord Jesus Christ as God and Saviour, according to the Scriptures, and therefore seek to fulfill their common calling to the glory of the one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The Council affirms, on the basis of the Scriptures, that the Church is the Body of Christ and therefore is one. Though obscured and marred by sinful division, this unity of all Christians is the gift of God and does not need to be created.
Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the Council is an instrument and servant of the Churches, committed to stimulating and effecting fellowship, co-operation and unity among its member Churches and all other Christians in their common mission in the world. The work of the Council is based on the recognition of Jesus Christ as the divine Head of the Body and is to the glory of the one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The theological basis of the Council a common confession of the Christian faith of its members and is not a creedal test of Churches or individuals. The Council is not committed to anyone theological understanding of the Church and membership of the Council does not imply acceptance of any specific doctrine of the Church.
