Beliefs – Seventh-day Adventist Church

1. Holy Scriptures: The Holy Scriptures, Old and New Testaments, are the written Word of God, given by divine inspiration through holy men of God who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. In this Word, God has committed to man the knowledge necessary for salvation. The Holy Scriptures are the infallible revelation of His will. They are the standard of character, the test of experience, the authoritative revealer of doctrines, and the trustworthy record of God’s acts in history. (2 Peter 1:20, 21; 2 Tim. 3:16, 17; Ps. 119:105; Prov. 30:5, 6; Isa. 8:20; John 17:17; 1 Thess. 2:13; Heb. 4:12.)

(II Pet. 1:20,21; II Tim. 3:16,17; Ps. 119:105; Prov. 30:5,6; Isa. 8:20; John 17:17; IThess. 2:13; Heb. 4:12).

2. Trinity (God Head): There is one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, a unity of three co-eternal Persons. God is immortal, allpowerful, all-knowing, above all, and ever present. He is infinite and beyond human comprehension, yet known through His self-revelation. He is forever worthy of worship, adoration, and service by the whole creation. (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14; Eph. 4:4- 6; 1 Peter 1:2; 1 Tim. 1:17; Rev. 14:7.)

II. THUMGAWM PASIAN Pa, Ta leh Kha Siangtho milip thum akip tawntungin, akigawmkhawm Pasian khat bek a om hi. Pasian pen si theilo, vangliatna khempeuh anei, na khempeuh athei, na khempeuh tungah zong om hi.

3. God the Father: God the eternal Father is the Creator, Source, Sustainer, and Sovereign of all creation. He is just and holy, merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. The qualities and powers exhibited in the Son and the Holy Spirit are also revelations of the Father. ( Gen. 1:1; Rev. 4:11; 1 Cor. 15:28; John 3:16; 1 John 4:8; 1 Tim. 1:17; Ex. 34:6, 7; John 14:9.)

III. PA PASIAN Tawntung Pa Pasian pen piansak vannuai apiangsakpa, aVaak, aKemcingpa leh aUkpa ahi hi. Amah pen thuman thutangin, Siangtho aa, hehpihna nei in, cingh hi. Lungduai mahmah in itna leh cingtakna tawh kidim hi. Tapa leh Kha Siangtho tung pan aa hong kilanghkhia sep theihnate leh vangliatnate zong Pa Pasian’ hong kilaakkhiatna vive mah ahi hi. (Gen. 1:1; Rev. 4:11; I Cor. 15:28; John 3:16; I John 4:8; I Tim. 1:17; Ex. 34:6,7; John 14:9).

4. God the Son: God the eternal Son became incarnate in Jesus Christ. Through Him all things were created, the character of God is revealed, the salvation of humanity is accomplished, and the world is judged. Forever truly God, He became also truly man, Jesus the Christ. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He lived and experienced temptation as a human being, but perfectly exemplified the righteousness and love of God. By His miracles He manifested God’s power and was attested as God’s promised Messiah. He suffered and died voluntarily on the cross for our sins and in our place, was raised from the dead, and ascended to minister in the heavenly sanctuary in our behalf. He will come again in glory for the final deliverance of His people and the restoration of all things. (John 1:1-3, 14; Col. 1:15-19; John 10:30; 14:9; Rom. 6:23; 2 Cor. 5:17-19; John 5:22; Luke 1:35; Phil. 2:5- 11; Heb. 2:9-18; 1 Cor. 15:3, 4; Heb. 8:1, 2; John 14:1-3.)

IV. TAPA PASIAN Tawntung Tapa Pasian pen Zeisu Khazih (Jesus Christ) min nei in mihing bangin hong piang hi. Ama tungtawnin na khempeuh kipiangsak, Pasian’ zia leh tong kilangh, mihingte hotkhiat nading kipicing sakin leitung buppi’ thu kikhen hi. A tawntungin Pasian taktak mah hi napi-in mihing taktak Zeisu ahi Khrist in hong piang hi. Amah pen Kha Siangtho’ gai sak hia, nungak siangtho Mary sung panin hong piang khia hi. Amah in mihing khat mah bangin nungta in ze-et nathuak ahih hangin, pau banna omlo etteh takcing takin Pasian dikna leh itna na lak khia hi.

Amah in ih mawhnate tang ding leh eima tang dingin, kipumpiakna tawh singlamteh tung hong si in, sihna pan thokik in, Van biakbuuk sungah eima ading Siampilian sem dingin na kahto hi. A mite atawp khak na gupkhiatna ding leh na khempeuh puah phatna dingin Vangliatnapi tawh hong pai kik ding hi. (John 1:1-3,14; Col. 1:15-19; John 10:30; John 14:9; Rom. 6:23; II Cor. 5:17-19; John 5:22; Luke 1:35; Phil. 2:5-11; Heb. 2:9-18; I Cor. 15:3,4; Heb. 8:1,2; John 14:1-3).

5. Holy Spirit: God the eternal Spirit was active with the Father and the Son in Creation, incarnation, and redemption. He inspired the writers of Scripture. He filled Christ’s life with power. He draws and convicts human beings; and those who respond He renews and transforms into the image of God. Sent by the Father and the Son to be always with His children, He extends spiritual gifts to the church, empowers it to bear witness to Christ, and in harmony with the Scriptures leads it into all truth. (Gen. 1:1, 2; Luke 1:35; 4:18; Acts 10:38; 2 Peter 1:21; 2 Cor. 3:18; Eph. 4:11, 12; Acts 1:8; John 14:16-18, 26; 15:26, 27; 16:7- 13.)

V. KHA SIANGTHO PASIAN Kha Siangtho Pasian pen piansakna ah ahi zongin, Zeisu mihing banga hong pianna ah ahi zongin, Tatkhiatna ah ahi zongin, Pa leh Tapa tawh a na mapang khawm ahi hi. Amah in Lai Siangtho a gelhte humuap hi. Amah in Khrish’ nuntakna vangliatna tawh na kidim sak hi. Amah in mihingte kaiin kiphawk thei saka, alung himawhte thak suak sak in, Pasian’ Lim leh mel asun dingin khel hi. A tate tawh a om khawm tawntung dingin Pa leh Tapa in sawl hi. Amah in Khalam piak khongte (Kha Siangtho silpiak) pawlpi tungah piain, Khrist a ding teci a pang dingin thu pia a, Lai Siangtho Kammalte tawh kihualin thumaan, thutak sungah pawlpi makaih hi. (Gen. 1:1, 2; Luke 1:35; 4:18; Acts 10:38; II Pet. 1:21; II Cor. 3:18; Eph. 4:11, 12; Acts 1:8; John 14:16-18, 26; 15:26, 27; 16:7- 13).

6. Creation: God is Creator of all things, and has revealed in Scripture the authentic account of His creative activity. In six days the Lord made “the heaven and the earth” and all living things upon the earth, and rested on the seventh day of that first week. Thus He established the Sabbath as a perpetual memorial of His completed creative work. The first man and woman were made in the image of God as the crowning work of Creation, given dominion over the world, and charged with responsibility to care for it. When the world was finished it was “very good,” declaring the glory of God. (Gen. 1; 2; Ex. 20:8-11; Ps. 19:1-6; 33:6, 9; 104; Heb. 11:3.)

VI. PIANSAKNA Pasian in na khempeuh apiangsak Pa hi-a, piansakna tawh kisai asep abawl ziate man takin Lai Siangtho sungah pulak hi. Niguk sungin Topa in van leh lei leh leitung aa nuntakna anei khempeuh nabawl a, kal masa pen ii ni sagih ni-in na tawl nga hi. Tua bangin azawhsa apiansak nasepna phawk den na dingin Sabbath Na phut hi. Piansak nasep a khupna (azawhna) in a masa pen pasal leh numei Pasian mel sun in nabawl a, leitung bup ukna na pia a, don in kep ding tavuan pia hi. Leitung bawlna a kizawh khit ciangin Leitung “hoih mahmah” in Pasian’ vangliatna taang ko ko h i (Gen. 1:2; Exod. 20:8-11; Ps. 19:1-6; 33:6, 9; 104; Heb. 11:3).

7. Nature of Man: Man and woman were made in the image of God with individuality, the power and freedom to think and to do. Though created free beings, each is an indivisible unity of body, mind, and spirit, dependent upon God for life and breath and all else. When our first parents disobeyed God, they denied their dependence upon Him and fell from their high position under God. The image of God in them was marred and they became subject to death. Their descendants share this fallen nature and its consequences. They are born with weaknesses and tendencies to evil. But God in Christ reconciled the world to Himself and by His Spirit restores in penitent mortals the image of their Maker. Created for the glory of God, they are called to love Him and one another, and to care for their environment. (Gen. 1:26-28; 2:7; Ps. 8:4-8; Acts 17:24-28; Gen. 3; Ps. 51:5; Rom. 5:12- 17; 2 Cor. 5:19, 20; Ps. 51:10; 1 John 4:7, 8, 11, 20; Gen. 2:15.)

VII. MIHING PIANZIA (PIANPHUNG) Pasal leh numei te pen utbang aa ngaihsut theihna leh sep theihna ding suah takna leh vangliatna anei thei mimal hih na tawh Pasian’ lim leh mel sun in kipiang sak hi. A suakta mihing in, piansak ahih tei hangin mimal khat sim pen a kikhenkhia theilo pumpi lungsim leh ngaihsutna a kigawmkhawm khat hia, nuntakna, naksuk naktoh leh na khempeuh adingin Pasian tung ah kinga uh hi. A masa pen ih nu ih pa te in Pasian’ thu a na man loh uh ciangin Ama tunga a kingakna uh thu donlo in Pasian ukna nuai a angah pahtawina pan na zakia uh hi. Aneih uh Pasian’ lim leh mel pen na kisia-in sihna khut nuai mi na suak uh hi. A mau’ suan leh khak te in hih apuksa pianphung leh agu agau te dawl (luah) suk suk uh hi. A maute pen siatna, tha nemna leh zom paihna te tawh suak khia uh hi. Ahi zongin Pasian in Khrist tung tawnin a kisikkik thei mite sungah amau piangsakpa lim leh mel guan kik hi. Pasian’ min than nading a ana kipiangsak ahih mah bangin Amah a it ding leh khat leh khat ki-it ding, kim leh pam akemcing dingin amaute kideih hi (Gen. 1:26-28; 2:7; Ps. 8:4-8; Acts 17:24-28; Gen. 3; Ps. 51:5; Rom. 5:12- 17; II Cor. 5:19, 20; Ps. 51:10; I John 4:7, 8, 11, 20; Gen. 2:15).

8. Great Controversy: All humanity is now involved in a great controversy between Christ and Satan regarding the character of God, His law, and His sovereignty over the universe. This conflict originated in heaven when a created being, endowed with freedom of choice, in selfexaltation became Satan, God’s adversary, and led into rebellion a portion of the angels. He introduced the spirit of rebellion into this world when he led Adam and Eve into sin. This human sin resulted in the distortion of the image of God in humanity, the disordering of the created world, and its eventual devastation at the time of the worldwide flood. Observed by the whole creation, this world became the arena of the universal conflict, out of which the God of love will ultimately be vindicated. To assist His people in this controversy, Christ sends the Holy Spirit and the loyal angels to guide, protect, and sustain them in the way of salvation. (Rev. 12:4-9; Isa. 14:12- 14; Eze. 28:12-18; Gen. 3; Rom. 1:19- 32; 5:12-21; 8:19- 22; Gen. 6-8; 2 Peter 3:6; 1 Cor. 4:9; Heb. 1:14.).

VIII. KIDONA LIANPI Pasian zia leh tong Ama thukham leh mun ci teng (universe) A ukna tungtang Khrist leh Satan kikal buaina lianpi sungah leimibup tu in kihel hi. A kipiangsak nuntakna nei khat deih tel theih suah tak na ana kipiak ciangin amah mah kiliat sakna hangin Pasian lang pangpi ahi Satan na suaka, lehdona ah vantungmi hon khat na makaih hi. Adam leh Eve mawhna sungah ana tunpih ciangin hih leitung ah lehdona lung sim na thun hi. Hih leimi mawhna in mihing sunga Pasian’ lum leh mel suk siatna, a kipiangsak leitung nawng kai sakna leh leitungbup tuiciin tun lai aa a tawp khak suksiat cipna a piangsak hi. Hih leitung pen vantung leitung kidona (universal conflict) galphual nasuak in, piansak buppi in en cik a, a tawp khakna-ah itna Pasian in thuman gualzawhna phut ding hi. Hih buaina sungah A mite hot khiatna lampi ah ahuh, a makaih, a dal leh a don ding in Christ in Kha Siangtho leh a citak vantung mite sawl hi (Rev. 12:4-9; Isa. 14:12-14; Eze. 28:12-18; Gen. 3; Rom. 1:19-32; 5:12- 21; 8:19-22; Gen. 6:8; II Pet. 3:6; I Cor. 4:9; Heb. 1:14).

9. Life, Death, and Resurrection of Christ: In Christ’s life of perfect obedience to God’s will, His suffering, death, and resurrection, God provided the only means of atonement for human sin, so that those who by faith accept this atonement may have eternal life, and the whole creation may better understand the infinite and holy love of the Creator. This perfect atonement vindicates the righteousness of God’s law and the graciousness of His character; for it both condemns our sin and provides for our forgiveness. The death of Christ is substitutionary and expiatory, reconciling and transforming. The resurrection of Christ proclaims God’s triumph over the forces of evil, and for those who accept the atonement assures their final victory over sin and death. It declares the Lordship of Jesus Christ, before whom every knee in heaven and on earth will bow. (John 3:16; Isa. 53; 1 Peter 2:21, 22; 1 Cor. 15:3, 4, 20-22; 2 Cor. 5:14, 15, 19-21; Rom. 1:4; 3:25; 4:25; 8:3, 4; 1 John 2:2; 4:10; Col. 2:15; Phil. 2:6-11.)

IX. ZEISU NUNTAKNA, SIHNA LEH THAWHKIKNA Pasian’ deihna bangin Christ ii cingtak, thu mang nuntakna, A gentheihna, A sihna leh A thawhkikna tawh Pasian in mihing te’ mawhna a sian suah nading lampi om sunh na gel sak a, upna tawh hih siansuah na a sang mi khempeuh in tawntung a bawlpa’ nuntakna a ngah theih na ding leh piansakna buppi in mong nei lo leh a siangtho itna a theih tel zawk na ding ahi hi. Hih a cingtak siansuahna in ih mawhna kih huai takpi cih kip sak a, ahi zongin eite a’ding mawh maina zong hong pia ahih manin Pasian’ thu kham thu maanna leh Ama zia leh tongin heh pihna a hihna a hong pholaak hi. Christ sihna pen tang a sihna leh tang a thuakna ahih banah Pasian tawh kilem kik sak in nuntakna ki khel sak hi. Christ thawh kikna in siatna khempeuh tungah Pasian gual zawhna taangko in, tua sihna hang a sian suahna a um khempeuh in mawhna leh sihna tungah a tawpkhak gualzawhna angah na ding uh tel cian uh hi. Hih thawh kikna in vantung leh leitung a khuk nei khempeuh in ih biak ding uh Jesus Christ ii Topa hih na pulaak hi (John 3:16; Isa. 53; I Pet. 2:21, 22; I Cor. 15:3,4, 20- 22; II Cor. 5:14, 15, 19-21; Rom. 1:4; 3:25; 4:25; 8:3, 4; I John 2:2; 4:10; Col. 2:15; Phil. 2:6-11).

10. Experience of Salvation: In infinite love and mercy God made Christ, who knew no sin, to be sin for us, so that in Him we might be made the righteousness of God. Led by the Holy Spirit we sense our need, acknowledge our sinfulness, repent of our transgressions, and exercise faith in Jesus as Lord and Christ, as Substitute and Example. This faith which receives salvation comes through the divine power of the Word and is the gift of God’s grace. Through Christ we are justified, adopted as God’s sons and daughters, and delivered from the lordship of sin. Through the Spirit we are born again and sanctified; the Spirit renews our minds, writes God’s law of love in our hearts, and we are given the power to live a holy life. Abiding in Him we become partakers of the divine nature and have the assurance of salvation now and in the judgment. (2 Cor. 5:17-21; John 3:16; Gal. 1:4; 4:4-7; Titus 3:3-7; John 16:8; Gal. 3:13, 14; 1 Peter 2:21, 22; Rom. 10:17; Luke 17:5; Mark 9:23, 24; Eph. 2:5-10; Rom. 3:21- 26; Col. 1:13, 14; Rom. 8:14-17; Gal. 3:26; John 3:3-8; 1 Peter 1:23; Rom. 12:2; Heb. 8:7-12; Eze. 36:25-27; 2 Peter 1:3, 4; Rom. 8:1-4; 5:6-10.)

X. GUPKHIATNA’ THU LUANZIA Christ hangin eite in Pasian’ dikna ngah theihna dingin mong nei lo itna leh hehpihna tawh Pasian in mawhna a neilo Christ pen eite hangin mawhnei na hisak hi.

Hot khiatna asang hih upna pen Kammal (Thu) tung tawnin hong pai a, tua in piak khong Pasian hehpihna ahi hi. Christ tung tawnin eite hong ki diktang sakin Pasian’ tapate leh tanute hong suak sak a, mawhna zawhthawhna panin hong gum khia hi. Kha Siangtho tung tawnin eite ih suak thak a, hong kisiangsak hi. Kha Siangtho in ih lungsim ngaihsut nate khelin ih lung tangte sung ah Pasian itna thukham gelh ahih mana a siangtho nuntakna tawh a nungta dingin eite vang hong kipia hi. Ama sungah ih ten manin Pasian pianphung (zia leh tong) neite ih suak a, tu leh thukhen na hun ah hot khiatna ngah ing cih kitel cianna ih nei hi (II Cor. 5:17- 21; John 3:16; Gal. 1:4; 4:4-7; Titus 3:3- 7; John 16:8; Gal. 3:13, 14; I Pet. 2:21, 22; Rom. 10:17; Luke 17:5; Mark 9:23, 24; Eph. 2:5- 10; Rom. 3:21-26; Col. 1:13, 14; Rom. 8:14-17; Gal. 3:26; John 3:3-8; I Pet. 1:23; Rom. 12:2; Heb. 8:7-12; Eze. 36:25-27; II Pet. 1:3; Rom. 8:1-4; 5:6-10).

11. Growing in Christ: By His death on the cross Jesus triumphed over the forces of evil. He who subjugated the demonic spirits during His earthly ministry has broken their power and made certain their ultimate doom. Jesus’ victory gives us victory over the evil forces that still seek to control us, as we walk with Him in peace, joy, and assurance of His love. Now the Holy Spirit dwells within us and empowers us. Continually committed to Jesus as our Saviour and Lord, we are set free from the burden of our past deeds. No longer do we live in the darkness, fear of evil powers, ignorance, and meaninglessness of our former way of life. In this new freedom in Jesus, we are called to grow into the likeness of His character, communing with Him daily in prayer, feeding on His Word, meditating on it and on His providence, singing His praises, gathering together for worship, and participating in the mission of the Church. As we give ourselves in loving service to those around us and in witnessing to His salvation, His constant presence with us through the Spirit transforms every moment and every task into a spiritual experience. (Ps 1:1, 2; 23:4; 77:11, 12; Col 1:13, 14; 2:6, 14, 15; Luke 10:17- 20; Eph 5:19, 20; 6:12-18; 1 Thess 5:23; 2 Peter 2:9; 3:18; 2 Cor. 3:17, 18; Phil 3:7-14; 1 Thess 5:16-18; Matt 20:25-28; John 20:21; Gal 5:22-25; Rom 8:38, 39; 1 John 4:4; Heb 10:25.)

XI. KHAZIH SUNGAH KHANTOHNA Zeisu in singlamteh tungah A sihna tawh gilopa thahatnate’ tungah gualzo hi. Leitung A nasep sungin dawigilote’ khate a nuaisiahpa in, tua dawigilote kha vangliatnate suksiat sak aa, Amaute man thanna nunung piang sak hi.

I kim i pam a omte tungah itna tawh nasem ding leh Zeisu’ hotkhiatna thu teci pang ding in ei leh ei i kipiak mah bangin Kha Siangtho tungtawn in eite tawh tatsat lo-a hong om pihna in kha sunga i thuahkhak thute sungah i sep i bawl khempeuh hong thak suak sak-in hong kilamdang sak hi. (Ps 1:1, 2; 23:4; 77:11, 12; Col 1:13, 14; 2:6, 14, 15; Luke 10:17-20; Eph 5:19, 20; 6:12-18; 1 Thess 5:23; 2 Peter 2:9; 3:18; 2 Cor. 3:17, 18; Phil 3:7-14; 1 Thess 5:16-18; Matt 20:25-28; John 20:21; Gal 5:22-25; Rom 8:38, 39; 1 John 4:4; Heb 10:25.)

12. Church: The church is the community of believers who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. In continuity with the people of God in Old Testament times, we are called out from the world; and we join together for worship, for fellowship, for instruction in the Word, for the celebration of the Lord’s Supper, for service to all mankind, and for the worldwide proclamation of the gospel. The church derives its authority from Christ, who is the incarnate Word, and from the Scriptures, which are the written Word. The church is God’s family; adopted by Him as children, its members live on the basis of the new covenant. The church is the body of Christ, a community of faith of which Christ Himself is the Head. The church is the bride for whom Christ died that He might sanctify and cleanse her. At His return in triumph, He will present her to Himself a glorious church, the faithful of all the ages, the purchase of His blood, not having spot or wrinkle, but holy and without blemish. (Gen. 12:3; Acts 7:38; Eph. 4:11-15; 3:8-11; Matt. 28:19, 20; 16:13-20; 18:18; Eph. 2:19-22; 1:22, 23; 5:23-27; Col. 1:17, 18.).

Gual zawhna tawh a hong pai kik ciangin, a vanglian pawlpi, a khang khanga a citak, Ama sisan tawh a kilei, poina hemna nei lo a siangtho leh kawkbanna omlo in Amah mah kiang hong lam to ding hi ( Gen. 12:3; Acts 7:38; Eph. 4:11-15; 3:8-11; Matt. 28:19, 20; 16:13-20; 18:18; Eph. 2:19-22; 1:22, 23; 5:23-27; Col. 1:17, 18).

13. Remnant and Its Mission: The universal church is composed of all who truly believe in Christ, but in the last days, a time of widespread apostasy, a remnant has been called out to keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. This remnant announces the arrival of the judgment hour, proclaims salvation through Christ, and heralds the approach of His second advent. This proclamation is symbolized by the three angels of Revelation 14; it coincides with the work of judgment in heaven and results in a work of repentance and reform on earth. Every believer is called to have a personal part in this worldwide witness. (Rev. 12:17; 14:6- 12; 18:1-4; 2 Cor. 5:10; Jude 3, 14; 1 Peter 1:16-19; 2 Peter 3:10-14; Rev. 21:1-14.)

XIII.

Hih a bei bang’ pawlpi in thu khen hun hong tun ding pulak in Christ tung tawn in hotkhiatna tangkona pen Mangmuhna 14 sungah vantungmi thum in lim’ ciing hi; hih in vantunga thu khenna nasep tawh kituak in leitungah kisikkikna leh ki puah phatna piangsak hi. Thu um mi khat ciat pen letung buppi teci pabba-ah a kihel hamtang dingin sap a hi hi. (Rev.12:17;14:6- 12;18:1-4; II Cor.5:10; Jude3:14; I Pet.1:16:19; II Pet.3:10-14; Rev.21:1-14).

14. Unity in the Body of Christ: The church is one body with many members, called from every nation, kindred, tongue, and people. In Christ we are a new creation; distinctions of race, culture, learning, and nationality, and differences between high and low, rich and poor, male and female, must not be divisive among us. We are all equal in Christ, who by one Spirit has bonded us into one fellowship with Him and with one another; we are to serve and be served without partiality or reservation. Through the revelation of Jesus Christ in the Scriptures we share the same faith and hope, and reach out in one witness to all. This unity has its source in the oneness of the triune God, who has adopted us as His children. (Rom. 12:4, 5; 1 Cor. 12:12-14; Matt. 28:19, 20; Ps. 133:1; 2 Cor. 5:16, 17; Acts 17:26, 27; Gal. 3:27, 29; Col. 3:10-15; Eph. 4:14- 16; 4:1-6; John 17:20-23.)

XIV. ZEISU HANG’A KIPUM KHATNA Pawlpi pen gamsim, pausim leh mihonsim pan a kisam khia thu um mi tampi kigawma pum khat ahi hi. Christ hangin eite pen a thak piansak ih hi a, nam, ngeina, theihna gam kibatlohna te in ahi zongin, a sang leh aniam, a hau leh a zawng, pasal leh numei cihbang a kibatlohna te in ahi zongin eite kikal a hong kiphelkham sak thei ding hilo hi.

Hih kipum khatna in eite Ama tate bang a hong sang tawm’ thum gawm Pasian ki pum khatna ahi hi. (Rom. 12:4, 5; ICor. 12:12-14; Matt. 28:19-20; Ps.133:1; II Cor. 5:16-17; Acts 17:26, 27; Gal. 3:27, 29; Col. 3:10-15; Eph. 4:14-16; John 17:20-23).

15. Baptism: By baptism we confess our faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and testify of our death to sin and of our purpose to walk in newness of life. Thus we acknowledge Christ as Lord and Saviour, become His people, and are received as members by His church. Baptism is a symbol of our union with Christ, the forgiveness of our sins, and our reception of the Holy Spirit. It is by immersion in water and is contingent on an affirmation of faith in Jesus and evidence of repentance of sin. It follows instruction in the Holy Scriptures and acceptance of their teachings. (Rom. 6:1-6; Col. 2:12, 13; Acts 16:30-33; 22:16; 2:38; Matt. 28:19, 20.)

XV. TUIPHUMNA Kituiphumna tawh eite in Jesus Christ ii sihna leh thawhkikna thu ih upna ih pulak a, eite zong mawhna thu ah ih sihna leh a thaksuah nuntakna tawh ih kalsuan nopna ih kilangsak hi. Hih bangin eite in Christ pen Topa leh Honpa in ih sang aa, Ama mi suakin Ama pawlpi in eite hong sang hi. Kituiphumna pen Christ tawh ih kipawl khawmna, ih mawhnate a hong ki maisakna leh Kha Siangtho ih san na lim ahi hi. Hih pen pumpi khempeuh tui sungah a tum siang a kiphum hi a, Jesus ih upna kipsakna leh mawhna pan kisikkik na kilatna khat ahi hi. Hih pen Lai Siangtho kammal te suang aa, lam lahna bangin a kizui hi aa, hong thu hilhna te ih san na ahi hi (Rom. 6:1-6; Col. 2:12, 13; Acts 16:30-33; 22:16; 3:36; Matt. 28:19, 20).

16. Lord’s Supper: The Lord’s Supper is a participation in the emblems of the body and blood of Jesus as an expression of faith in Him, our Lord and Saviour. In this experience of communion Christ is present to meet and strengthen His people. As we partake, we joyfully proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes again. Preparation for the Supper includes selfexamination, repentance, and confession. The Master ordained the service of foot washing to signify renewed cleansing, to express a willingness to serve one another in Christlike humility, and to unite our hearts in love. The communion service is open to all believing Christians. (1 Cor. 10:16, 17; 11:23-30; Matt. 26:17-30; Rev. 3:20; John 6:48-63; 13:1- 17.)

XVI. NEKKHAWM PAWI (TOPA NITAK AN) Nekkhawm pawi ih cih in Jesus pumpi leh sisan lim ala pawi a kihelna hi aa, Amah ih Topa leh Honpa a ih upna lahna khat ahi hi. Hih nekkhawm bawlna sungah Ama mite muding leh thakhauhsak dingin, Christ om hi. Tua bangin ih nek ciangin, Topa’ hong sihna, a hong pai kik dongin lungdam taka, a pulak ih hi hi. Nekkhawm a ding kigin kholhna ah ei mahmah ki ettel kikna, kisikkikna leh mawh pulakna kihel hi. A thak kisil siangna lahna ding Christ banga ki niamkhiatna tawh khat leh khat na ki sepsak nopna lah nading, leh itna ah ih lung tangte a kituah khawm theihna dingin Topa in khe kisil sak na pawi hong pia hi. Nekkhawm bawlna pen thu um Christiante khempeuh a dingin zat theih ahi hi. (I Cor. 10:16, 17; 11:23-30; Matt. 26:17-30; Rev. 3:20; John 6:48-63; 13:1-17).

17. Spiritual Gifts and Ministries: God bestows upon all members of His church in every age spiritual gifts which each member is to employ in loving ministry for the common good of the church and of humanity. Given by the agency of the Holy Spirit, who apportions to each member as He wills, the gifts provide all abilities and ministries needed by the church to fulfill its divinely ordained functions. According to the Scriptures, these gifts include such ministries as faith, healing, prophecy, proclamation, teaching, administration, reconciliation, compassion, and selfsacrificing service and charity for the help and encouragement of people. Some members are called of God and endowed by the Spirit for functions recognized by the church in pastoral, evangelistic, apostolic, and teaching ministries particularly needed to equip the members for service, to build up the church to spiritual maturity, and to foster unity of the faith and knowledge of God. When members employ these spiritual gifts as faithful stewards of God’s varied grace, the church is protected from the destructive influence of false doctrine, grows with a growth that is from God, and is built up in faith and love. (Rom. 12:4-8; 1 Cor. 12:9- 11, 27, 28; Eph. 4:8, 11-16; Acts 6:1-7; 1 Tim. 3:1-13; 1 Peter 4:10, 11.)

XVII. KHALAM SILPIAKTE LEH NASEPNATE Pawlpi mimal ciatin pawlpi leh mibup ii hoih nading, a itna adim nasepna ah zat dingin Ama pawlpi mi khempeuh tungah Pasian in Khalam silpiakte a khangkhang in pia hi. Ama lungkim banga pawlpi mimal sim tungah a hawm khia Kha Siangtho gelna tawh a kipia ahih manin Pasian sehna nasep te a picin theih nading a pawlpi ii kisap sep theihnate leh nasepnate khempeuh tua Khalam silpiakte in guan hi. Lai Siangtho kammalte genna bangin hih Khalam silpiakte ah upna, damsakna, genkholhna, tangkona, hilhna, ukna, leptuahna, thuakzawhna, kipumpiak-a sepna, mite huhna leh hanthotna ah itna adim citna kihel hi. Pawlpi in a muhtheih nasepte ahi pawlpi kepna lam, thuhilh khiatna lam, sawltak nungzui batna lam leh lai hilh nasepna lama, a kisam phadiak nate ah pawlpi mite a kigin theih nading leh Pasian upna leh theihna ah kipum khatna khansuah theih nadingin pawl khatte pen Pasian’ sap khiat hi a, Kha Siangtho in tua nasepte a dingin a kisam Khalam silpiakte tawh amaute zem hi. A tuamtuam Pasian’ hehpihna thupha Khalam silpiakte pawlpi mite in a citak sumkem bangin azat khiat ciangin pawlpi pen a susia thei, a khial thuguipi (doctrine) ii huzapna panin kidal, kihu-a, Pasian kiang pan ahi khantohna tawh khangto in upna leh itna sungah kilam hi. (Rom. 12:4-8; I Cor. 12:9-11, 27, 28; Eph. 4:8, 11-16; Acts 6:1-7; I Tim. 3:1-13; I Pet. 4:10, 11).

18. The Gift of Prophecy: One of the gifts of the Holy Spirit is prophecy. This gift is an identifying mark of the remnant church and was manifested in the ministry of Ellen. G. White . As the Lord’s messenger, her writings are a continuing and authoritative source of truth which provide for the church comfort, guidance, instruction, and correction. They also make clear that the Bible is the standard by which all teaching and experience must be tested. (Joel 2:28, 29; Acts 2:14-21; Heb. 1:1-3; Rev. 12:17; 19:10.)

XVIII. GENKHOLHTHEIHNA SILPIAK Kha Siangtho silpiak te lak a khat in gen kholhna ahi hi. Hih piakkhong pen a omlai sun pawlpi a kilangsak thei ciaptehna khat hi a, Ellen G.

Pasian sawltak khat ahih mah bangin Ama lai gelhte in pawlpi a’ dingin lungmuanna lam lahna, hilhna leh puah phatna a pia, a kizom zom leh ukna vang a nei thuman thutak nak ahi hi. Tua te in Lai Siangtho pen thu hilhna leh pulakna khempeuh sittel nading dinmum (standard) ahih lam hong tel sawn sak hi. (Joel 2:28, 29; Acts 2:14-21; Heb. 1:1-3; Rev. 12:17; 19:10).

19. Law of God: The great principles of God’s law are embodied in the Ten Commandments and exemplified in the life of Christ. They express God’s love, will, and purposes concerning human conduct and relationships and are binding upon all people in every age. These precepts are the basis of God’s covenant with His people and the standard in God’s judgment. Through the agency of the Holy Spirit they point out sin and awaken a sense of need for a Saviour. Salvation is all of grace and not of works, but its fruitage is obedience to the Commandments. This obedience develops Christian character and results in a sense of well-being. It is an evidence of our love for the Lord and our concern for our fellow men. The obedience of faith demonstrates the power of Christ to transform lives, and therefore strengthens Christian witness. (Ex. 20:1-17; Ps. 40:7, 8; Matt. 22:36-40; Deut. 28:1-14; Matt. 5:17-20; Heb. 8:8- 10; John 15:7-10; Eph. 2:8-10; 1 John 5:3; Rom. 8:3, 4; Ps. 19:7-14.)

XIX. PASIAN’ THUKHAM A lian Pasian Thukham guipite pen Thupiak Sawm sungah kiguang a, Christ nuntakna sungah etteh dingin kilak khia hi. Tuate in Pasian itna, deihna leh leimi sep zia ding leh kizopna te tawh kisai ngimna tupnate kilangsak a, a khang khangin mi khempeuh zuih ding ahi hi. Hih Thuguikhunte pen A mite tawh Pasian kiciamna ii bulpi hi a, Pasian thu khenna ah letsan dinmun (standard) ahi hi. Kha Siangtho nasepna tung tawnin tuate in mawhna kawk khia in, Honpa khat a kisap lam thei sak hi. Hot khiatna pen heh pihna bek hi a, sepna te tawh hi lo hi; ahi zongin hot khiatna gah in Thu Piakte zuih leh manna ahi hi. Hih thu manna in Christian gamtatna khangto sakin lungkimna piang sak a, Topa ih itna leh ih lawm leh ih gual te ih khualna a kilat na khat ahi hi. Upna ii thumanna in nuntaknate khel theih nading Christ vang liatna lak in Christian tangkona zong tha khauh sak hi. (Ex. 20:1-17; Ps. 40:7, 8; Matt. 22:36-40; Deut.28:1-14; Matt. 5:17-20; Heb. 8:8- 10; John 15:7-10; Eph. 2:8-10; I John 5:3; Rom. 8:3, 4; Ps. 19:7-14).

20. Sabbath: The beneficent Creator, after the six days of Creation, rested on the seventh day and instituted the Sabbath for all people as a memorial of Creation. The fourth commandment of God’s unchangeable law requires the observance of this seventh-day Sabbath as the day of rest, worship, and ministry in harmony with the teaching and practice of Jesus, the Lord of the Sabbath. The Sabbath is a day of delightful communion with God and one another. It is a symbol of our redemption in Christ, a sign of our sanctification, a token of our allegiance, and a foretaste of our eternal future in God’s kingdom. The Sabbath is God’s perpetual sign of His eternal covenant between Him and His people. Joyful observance of this holy time from evening to evening, sunset to sunset, is a celebration of God’s creative and redemptive acts. (Gen. 2:1-3; Ex. 20:8-11; Luke 4:16; Isa. 56:5, 6; 58:13, 14; Matt. 12:1-12; Ex. 31:13-17; Eze. 20:12, 20; Deut. 5:12-15; Heb. 4:1- 11; Lev. 23:32; Mark 1:32.)

XX. SABBATH (TAWLNGAK NI) Adik ahoih Piangsakpa in piansakna ni guk a cin khit, ani sagih ni tawlnga in, piansakna phawkna khatin mi khempeuh a’ dingin Sabbath (Tawlngakni) na phuan khia hi.

Sabbath pen Pasian tawh hi taleh khat leh khat hitaleh a nuam kikholh khawm na khat ahi hi. Hih pen Christ hanga tatkhiatna ih ngahna lim khat, siansuahna ih ngahna lim khat, Ama tungah ih cihtakna limkhat leh Pasian gam sunga, tawntung mailam ih ciap kholhna khat ahi hi.

Nitak khat pan nitak khat, nitum khat pan nitum khat hih a siangtho hunpha lungnuam taka ih tanhna in Pasian piansak leh tatkhiat nasepte pulak a gen khiatna khat ahi hi. (Gen. 2:1-3; Ex. 20:8-11; Luke 4:16; Isa. 56:5, 6; 58:13, 14; Matt. 12:1-12; Ex. 31:13-17; Eze. 20:12, 20; Deut. 5:123-15; Heb. 4:1- 11; Lev. 23:32; Mark 1:32)

21. Stewardship: We are God’s stewards, entrusted by Him with time and opportunities, abilities and possessions, and the blessings of the earth and its resources. We are responsible to Him for their proper use. We acknowledge God’s ownership by faithful service to Him and our fellow men, and by returning tithes and giving offerings for the proclamation of His gospel and the support and growth of His church. Stewardship is a privilege given to us by God for nurture in love and the victory over selfishness and covetousness. The steward rejoices in the blessings that come to others as a result of his f a it h f u l n e s s . (Gen. 1:26-28; 2:15; 1 Chron. 29:14; Haggai 1:3-11; Mal. 3:8-12; 1 Cor. 9:9- 14; Matt. 23:23; 2 Cor. 8:1-15; Rom. 15:26, 27.)

XXI. VANKEM HIHNA (STEWARDSHIP) Eite pen Pasian van kemte ih hi a, hun leh hunpha sep theihna leh neih leh lam, leitung thupha leh leitung leinuai a piang nate a kem dingin Amah in eite hong ap hi.

Vankem hihna pen Pasian in a hong piak ham phatna hi a, itna tawh zeek in huaiham na leh deihgawhna tungah gual zawhna ngah na ding a hong piak ahi hi. Van kempa in ama cih takna huhau in midangte tungah thupha a tun manin kipak hi. (Gen. 1:26-28; 2:15; I Chron. 29:14; Haggai 1:3-11; Mal. 3:8-12; I Cor. 9:9- 14; Matt. 23:23; II Cor. 8:1-15; Rom. 15:26, 27)

22. Christian Behavior: We are called to be a godly people who think, feel, and act in harmony with the principles of heaven. For the Spirit to recreate in us the character of our Lord we involve ourselves only in those things which will produce Christlike purity, health, and joy in our lives. This means that our amusement and entertainment should meet the highest standards of Christian taste and beauty. While recognizing cultural differences, our dress is to be simple, modest, and neat, befitting those whose true beauty does not consist of outward adornment but in the imperishable ornament of a gentle and quiet spirit. It also means that because our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit, we are to care for them intelligently. Along with adequate exercise and rest, we are to adopt the most healthful diet possible and abstain from the unclean foods identified in the Scriptures. Since alcoholic beverages, tobacco, and the irresponsible use of drugs and narcotics are harmful to our bodies, we are to abstain from them as well. Instead, we are to engage in whatever brings our thoughts and bodies into the discipline of Christ, who desires our wholesomeness, joy, and goodness. (Rom. 12:1, 2; 1 John 2:6; Eph. 5:1-21; Phil. 4:8; 2 Cor. 10:5; 6:14-7:1; 1 Peter 3:1-4; 1 Cor. 6:19, 20; 10:31; Lev. 11:1- 47; 3 John 2.)

(Rom. 12:1, 2; I John 2:6; Eph. 5:1-21; Lev. 11:1-47; III John 2)

23. Marriage and the Family: Marriage was divinely established in Eden and affirmed by Jesus to be a lifelong union between a man and a woman in loving companionship. For the Christian a marriage commitment is to God as well as to the spouse, and should be entered into only between partners who share a common faith. Mutual love, honor, respect, and responsibility are the fabric of this relationship, which is to reflect the love, sanctity, closeness, and permanence of the relationship between Christ and His church. Regarding divorce, Jesus taught that the person who divorces a spouse, except for fornication, and marries another, commits adultery. Although some family relationships may fall short of the ideal, marriage partners who fully commit themselves to each other in Christ may achieve loving unity through the guidance of the Spirit and the nurture of the church. God blesses the family and intends that its members shall assist each other toward complete maturity. Parents are to bring up their children to love and obey the Lord. By their example and their words they are to teach them that Christ is a loving disciplinarian, ever tender and caring, who wants them to become members of His body, the family of God. Increasing family closeness is one of the earmarks of the final gospel message. (Gen. 2:18-25; Matt. 19:3-9; John 2:1-11; 2 Cor. 6:14; Eph. 5:21-33; Matt. 5:31, 32; Mark 10:11, 12; Luke 16:18; 1 Cor. 7:10, 11; Ex. 20:12; Eph. 6:1-4; Deut. 6:5-9; Prov. 22:6; Mal. 4:5, 6.)

Innkuan kithuhual semsemna in a kitangko, a tawpkhak lung damna thupha lakah khat ahi hi. (Gen. 2:18-25; Matt. 19:3-9; John 2:1-11; II Cor. 6:14; Eph. 5:21-33; Matt. 5:31, 32; Mark 10:11, 12; Luke 16:18; I Cor. 7:10, 11; Ex. 20:12; Eph. 6:1-4; Deut. 6:5-9; Prov. 22:6; Mal. 4:5, 6)

24. Christ’s Ministry in the Heavenly Sanctuary: There is a sanctuary in heaven, the true tabernacle which the Lord set up and not man. In it Christ ministers on our behalf, making available to believers the benefits of His atoning sacrifice offered once for all on the cross. He was inaugurated as our great High Priest and began His intercessory ministry at the time of His ascension. In 1844, at the end of the prophetic period of 2300 days, He entered the second and last phase of His atoning ministry. It is a work of investigative judgment which is part of the ultimate disposition of all sin, typified by the cleansing of the ancient Hebrew sanctuary on the Day of Atonement. In that typical service the sanctuary was cleansed with the blood of animal sacrifices, but the heavenly things are purified with the perfect sacrifice of the blood of Jesus. The investigative judgment reveals to heavenly intelligences who among the dead are asleep in Christ and therefore, in Him, are deemed worthy to have part in the first resurrection. It also makes manifest who among the living are abiding in Christ, keeping the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus, and in Him, therefore, are ready for translation into His everlasting kingdom. This judgment vindicates the justice of God in saving those who believe in Jesus. It declares that those who have remained loyal to God shall receive the kingdom. The completion of this ministry of Christ will mark the close of human probation before the Second Advent. (Heb. 8:1-5; 4:14-16; 9:11-28; 10:19-22; 1:3; 2:16, 17; Dan. 7:9-27; 8:13, 14; 9:24-27; Num. 14:34; Eze. 4:6; Lev. 16; Rev. 14:6, 7; 20:12; 14:12; 22:12.)

(Heb. 8:1-5; 4:14-16; 9:11-28; 10:19-22; 1:3; 2:16, 17; Dan. 7:9-27; 8:13, 14; 9:24-27; Num. 14:34; Eze. 4:6; Lev. 16; Rev. 14:6, 7; 20:12; 14:12; 22:12)

25. Second Coming of Christ: The second coming of Christ is the blessed hope of the church, the grand climax of the gospel. The Saviour’s coming will be literal, personal, visible, and worldwide. When He returns, the righteous dead will be resurrected, and together with the righteous living will be glorified and taken to heaven, but the unrighteous will die. The almost complete fulfillment of most lines of prophecy, together with the present condition of the world, indicates that Christ’s coming is imminent. The time of that event has not been revealed, and we are therefore exhorted to be ready at all ti m e s . (Titus 2:13; Heb. 9:28; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:9-11; Matt. 24:14; Rev. 1:7; Matt. 24:43, 44; 1 Thess. 4:13-18; 1 Cor. 15:51-54; 2 Thess. 1:7-10; 2:8; Rev. 14:14-20; 19:11-21; Matt. 24; Mark 13; Luke 21; 2 Tim. 3:1-5; 1 Thess. 5:1-6.)

XXV. ZEISU NIHVEI HONG PAIKIKNA Christ nih vei a hong paina pen, pawlpi ii a manpha lametna leh lungdamna thu ii a nop cipen thukhupna ahi hi. Honpa hong pai ding pen a taktak A pumpi mahmah theih hiding a leitung bup huam kim ding hi. Amah hong paikik ciangin a dik misite hong thokik in, midik nungtalaite tawh kipahtawi khawm dinga, vantungah laktohna ngahin migilote ahih leh si ding hi. Gen kholhna khempeuh dektak a tangtun khit phialnate leh tulai leitung pianzia in Christ hong paina ding nai law mahmah ta hi cih hong lak eite in hunbit in ih kigin denna ding hong ki hanthawn ahi hi. (Titus 2:13; Heb. 9:28; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:9-11; Matt. 24:14; Rev. 1:7; Matt. 24:43, 44; I These. 4:13-18; I Cor. 15:51-54; II Thes. 1:7-10; 2:8; Rev. 14:14-20; 19:11-21; Matt. 24; Mark 13: Luke 21; II Tim. 3:1-5; I Thes. 5:1-6)

26. Death and Resurrection: The wages of sin is death. But God, who alone is immortal, will grant eternal life to His redeemed. Until that day death is an unconscious state for all people. When Christ, who is our life, appears, the resurrected righteous and the living righteous will be glorified and caught up to meet their Lord. The second resurrection, the resurrection of the unrighteous, will take place a thousand years later. (Rom. 6:23; 1 Tim. 6:15, 16; Eccl. 9:5, 6; Ps. 146:3, 4; John 11:11-14; Col. 3:4; 1 Cor. 15:51-54; 1Thess. 4:13-17;John 5:28, 29;Rev.20:1-10

XXVI. SIHNA LEH THAWHKIKNA Mawhna thaman in sihna hi. Ahi zongin sih theih lohna a nei Pasian bek in Ama tatsa te tungah tawntung nuntakna pia ding hi. Tua ni mateng sihna pen mi khempeuh a dingin khaw phawk lohna ahi hi. Ih nuntakna ah Christ hong kilat ciangin a thokik midikte leh ahing lai midikte kipah tawi ding a, Topa dawn dingin kilam to ding hi. Miginalo te thawh kikna, nih vei thawh kikna pen kum tul khat khit ciangin piang ding hi. (Rom. 6:23; I Tim. 6:15, 16; Eccl. 9:5, 6; Ps. 146:3, 4; John 11:11-14; Col. 3:4; I Cor. 15:51-54; I Thes. 4:13-17; John 5:28, 29; Rev. 20:1- 10)

27. Millennium and the End of Sin: The millennium is the thousand-year reign of Christ with His saints in heaven between the first and second resurrections. During this time the wicked dead will be judged; the earth will be utterly desolate, without living human inhabitants, but occupied by Satan and his angels. At its close Christ with His saints and the Holy City will descend from heaven to earth. The unrighteous dead will then be resurrected, and with Satan and his angels will surround the city; but fire from God will consume them and cleanse the earth. The universe will thus be freed of sin and sinners forever. (Rev. 20; 1 Cor. 6:2, 3; Jer. 4:23-26; Rev. 21:1-5; Mal. 4:1; Eze. 28:18, 19.)

XXVII. KUM TUL MANNA LEH MAWHNA BEINA Kum tul khat manna i cih pen, a masa leh nih veina thawhkikna te kikal a vantungah Christ leh ami siangtho te kumtulkhat a man huh teng ahi hi. Hih huh sungin a gilo misite thu ki khen dinga, leitungah a nungta a teng omlo in sia cip dinga, Satan leh a sawltak dawite in luah ding hi. Hih hun a bei ciangin a misiangtho te leh a khuapi siangtho tawh Christ van pan in leitung ah kum suk ding hi. Tua huh lai tak in a gilo misite hong tho kik ding a, Satan leh a sawltak dawite in tua khuapi siangtho um cih ding hi. Ahi zongin Pasian kiangpan a hong pai meikuang pi in tua amau te khempeuh kang tumin leitung hal siang ding hi. Hih bangin lei leh van buppi (universe) pen mawhna leh mawhnei te pan tawntung suahtakna ki ngah sak ding hi. ( Rev. 20; I Cor. 6:2, 3; Jer. 4:23- 26; Rev. 21:1-5; Mal. 4:1; Eze. 28:18, 19).

28. New Earth: On the new earth, in which righteousness dwells, God will provide an eternal home for the redeemed and a perfect environment for everlasting life, love, joy, and learning in His presence. For here God Himself will dwell with His people, and suffering and death will have passed away. The great controversy will be ended, and sin will be no more. All things, animate and inanimate, will declare that God is love; and He shall reign forever. Amen. (2 Peter 3:13; Isa. 35; 65:17-25; Matt. 5:5; Rev. 21:1- 7; 22:1-5; 11:15.)

XXVIII.
