BASIS OF ASSOCIATION
Believing that Christians everywhere are called by God the Father through His Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, to the redeemed and to the redeeming community in the world, dedicated to the service of God and mankind, and humbly grateful to God for the growing sense of unity in Christ among the Churches and Christian organizations in Singapore, the Council is founded :
- on a common belief that God has revealed his eternal purpose for mankind in His Son, Jesus Christ, through the Holy Spirit, that the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the supreme standard of Christian faith and practice, and that the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds express our historical common faith;
- on the acceptance of the principle that the Church is engaged in the Christian enterprise, that the local congregation is the basis to its life and witness, and that evangelism is its primary task;
- as an association of Churches and other Christian organizations, each believing that it is Christ’s will that His Body, the Church, should again be visibly one, and each desiring to work towards this end; and
- as an association of co-operating members, each of which determines its own policy and action.
