CONFESSIONAL STATEMENT

1. The Tri-une God

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, who know, love, and glorify one another. This one true and living God is infinitely perfect both in his love and in his holiness. He is the Creator of all things, visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy to receive all glory and adoration. Immortal and eternal, he perfectly and exhaustively knows the end from the beginning, sustains and sovereignly rules over all things, and providentially brings about his eternal good purposes to redeem a people for himself and restore his fallen creation, to the praise of his glorious grace.

2. Revelation

God has graciously disclosed his existence and power in the created order and has supremely revealed himself to fallen human beings in the person of his Son, the incarnate Word. Moreover, this God is a speaking God who by his Spirit has graciously disclosed himself in human words: we believe that God has inspired the words preserved in the Scriptures, the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, which are both record and means of his saving work in the world. These writings alone constitute the verbally inspired Word of God, which is utterly authoritative and without error in the original writings, complete in its revelation of his will for salvation, sufficient for all that God requires us to believe and do, and final in its authority over every domain of knowledge to which it speaks. We confess that both our finitude and our sinfulness preclude the possibility of knowing God’s truth exhaustively, but we affirm that enlightened by the Spirit of God, we can know God’s revealed truth truly. The Bible is to be believed, as God’s instruction, in all that it teaches; obeyed, as God’s command, in all that it requires; and trusted, as God’s pledge, in all that it promises. As God’s people hear, believe, and do the Word, they are equipped as disciples of Christ and witnesses to the gospel.

3. Creation of Humanity

We believe that God created human beings, male and female, in his own image. Adam and Eve belonged to the created order that God himself declared to be very good, serving as God’s agents to care for, manage, and govern creation, living in holy and devoted fellowship with their Maker. Men and women, equally made in the image of God, enjoy equal access to God by faith in Christ Jesus and are both called to move beyond passive self-indulgence to significant private and public engagement in family, church, and civic life. Adam and Eve were made to complement each other in a one-flesh union that establishes the only normative pattern of sexual relations for men and women, such that marriage ultimately serves as a type of the union between Christ and his church. In God’s wise purposes, men and women are not simply interchangeable, but rather they complement each other in mutually enriching ways. God ordains that they assume distinctive roles which reflect the loving relationship between Christ and the church, the husband exercising headship in a way that displays the caring, sacrificial love of Christ, and the wife submitting to her husband in a way that models the love of the church for her Lord. In the ministry of the church, both men and women are encouraged to serve Christ and to be developed to their full potential in the manifold ministries of the people of God. The distinctive leadership role within the church given to qualified men is grounded in creation, fall, and redemption and must not be sidelined by appeals to cultural developments.

4. The Fall

We believe that Adam, made in the image of God, distorted that image and forfeited his original blessedness—for himself and all his progeny—by falling into sin through Satan’s temptation. As a result, all human beings are alienated from God, corrupted in every aspect of their being (e.g., physically, mentally, volitionally, emotionally, spiritually) and condemned finally and irrevocably to death—apart from God’s own gracious intervention. The supreme need of all human beings is to be reconciled to the God under whose just and holy wrath we stand; the only hope of all human beings is the undeserved love of this same God, who alone can rescue us and restore us to himself.

5. The Plan of God

We believe that from all eternity God determined in grace to save a great multitude of guilty sinners from every tribe and language and people and nation, and to this end foreknew them and chose them. We believe that God justifies and sanctifies those who by grace have faith in Jesus, and that he will one day glorify them—all to the praise of his glorious grace. In love God commands and implores all people to repent and believe, having set his saving love on those he has chosen and having ordained Christ to be their Redeemer.

6. The Gospel

We believe that the gospel is the good news of Jesus Christ—God’s very wisdom. Utter folly to the world, even though it is the power of God to those who are being saved, this good news is Christological, centering on the cross and resurrection: the gospel is not proclaimed if Christ is not proclaimed, and the authentic Christ has not been proclaimed if his death and resurrection are not central (the message is ⤜Christ died for our sins . . . [and] was raised”). This good news is biblical (his death and resurrection are according to the Scriptures), theological and salvific (Christ died for our sins, to reconcile us to God), historical (if the saving events did not happen, our faith is worthless, we are still in our sins, and we are to be pitied more than all others), apostolic (the message was entrusted to and transmitted by the apostles, who were witnesses of these saving events), and intensely personal (where it is received, believed, and held firmly, individual persons are saved).

7. The Redemption of Christ

We believe that, moved by love and in obedience to his Father, the eternal Son became human: the Word became flesh, fully God and fully human being, one Person in two natures. The man Jesus, the promised Messiah of Israel, was conceived through the miraculous agency of the Holy Spirit, and was born of the virgin Mary. He perfectly obeyed his heavenly Father, lived a sinless life, performed miraculous signs, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, arose bodily from the dead on the third day, and ascended into heaven. As the mediatorial King, he is seated at the right hand of God the Father, exercising in heaven and on earth all of God’s sovereignty, and is our High Priest and righteous Advocate. We believe that by his incarnation, life, death, resurrection, and ascension, Jesus Christ acted as our representative and substitute. He did this so that in him we might become the righteousness of God: on the cross he canceled sin, propitiated God, and, by bearing the full penalty of our sins, reconciled to God all those who believe. By his resurrection Christ Jesus was vindicated by his Father, broke the power of death and defeated Satan who once had power over it, and brought everlasting life to all his people; by his ascension he has been forever exalted as Lord and has prepared a place for us to be with him. We believe that salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name given under heaven by which we must be saved. Because God chose the lowly things of this world, the despised things, the things that are not, to nullify the things that are, no human being can ever boast before him—Christ Jesus has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness, and redemption.

8. The Justification of Sinners

We believe that Christ, by his obedience and death, fully discharged the debt of all those who are justified. By his sacrifice, he bore in our stead the punishment due us for our sins, making a proper, real, and full satisfaction to God’s justice on our behalf. By his perfect obedience he satisfied the just demands of God on our behalf, since by faith alone that perfect obedience is credited to all who trust in Christ alone for their acceptance with God. Inasmuch as Christ was given by the Father for us, and his obedience and punishment were accepted in place of our own, freely and not for anything in us, this justification is solely of free grace, in order that both the exact justice and the rich grace of God might be glorified in the justification of sinners. We believe that a zeal for personal and public obedience flows from this free justification.

9. The Power of the Holy Spirit

We believe that this salvation, attested in all Scripture and secured by Jesus Christ, is applied to his people by the Holy Spirit. Sent by the Father and the Son, the Holy Spirit glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ, and, as the “other” Paraclete, is present with and in believers. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and by his powerful and mysterious work regenerates spiritually dead sinners, awakening them to repentance and faith, and in him they are baptized into union with the Lord Jesus, such that they are justified before God by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone. By the Spirit’s agency, believers are renewed, sanctified, and adopted into God’s family; they participate in the divine nature and receive his sovereignly distributed gifts. The Holy Spirit is himself the down payment of the promised inheritance, and in this age indwells, guides, instructs, equips, revives, and empowers believers for Christ-like living and service.

10. The Kingdom of God

We believe that those who have been saved by the grace of God through union with Christ by faith and through regeneration by the Holy Spirit enter the kingdom of God and delight in the blessings of the new covenant: the forgiveness of sins, the inward transformation that awakens a desire to glorify, trust, and obey God, and the prospect of the glory yet to be revealed. Good works constitute indispensable evidence of saving grace. Living as salt in a world that is decaying and light in a world that is dark, believers should neither withdraw into seclusion from the world, nor become indistinguishable from it: rather, we are to do good to the city, for all the glory and honor of the nations is to be offered up to the living God. Recognizing whose created order this is, and because we are citizens of God’s kingdom, we are to love our neighbors as our- selves, doing good to all, especially to those who belong to the household of God. The kingdom of God, already present but not fully realized, is the exercise of God’s sovereignty in the world toward the eventual redemption of all creation. The kingdom of God is an invasive power that plunders Satan’s dark kingdom and regenerates and renovates through repentance and faith the lives of individuals rescued from that kingdom. It therefore inevitably establishes a new community of human life together under God.

11. God’s New People

We believe that God’s new covenant people have already come to the heavenly Jerusalem; they are already seated with Christ in the heavenlies. This universal church is manifest in local churches of which Christ is the only Head; thus each “local church” is, in fact, the church, the household of God, the assembly of the living God, and the pillar and foundation of the truth. The church is the body of Christ, the apple of his eye, graven on his hands, and he has pledged himself to her forever. The church is distinguished by her gospel message, her sacred ordinances, her discipline, her great mission, and, above all, by her love for God, and by her members’ love for one another and for the world. Crucially, this gospel we cherish has both personal and corporate dimensions, neither of which may properly be overlooked. Christ Jesus is our peace: he has not only brought about peace with God, but also peace between alienated peoples. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity, thus making peace, and in one body to reconcile both Jew and Gentile to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. The church serves as a sign of God’s future new world when its members live for the service of one another and their neighbors, rather than for self-focus. The church is the corporate dwelling place of God’s Spirit, and the continuing witness to God in the world.

12. Baptism and the Lord’s Supper

We believe that baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordained by the Lord Jesus himself. The former is connected with entrance into the new covenant community, the latter with ongoing covenant renewal. Together they are simultaneously God’s pledge to us, divinely ordained means of grace, our public vows of submission to the once crucified and now resurrected Christ, and anticipations of his return and of the consummation of all things.

13. The Restoration of All Things

We believe in the personal, glorious, and bodily return of our Lord Jesus Christ with his holy angels, when he will exercise his role as final Judge, and his kingdom will be consummated. We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the just and the unjust—the unjust to judgment and eternal conscious punishment in hell, as our Lord himself taught, and the just to eternal blessedness in the presence of him who sits on the throne and of the Lamb, in the new heaven and the new earth, the home of righteousness. On that day the church will be presented faultless before God by the obedience, suffering and triumph of Christ, all sin purged and its wretched effects forever banished. God will be all in all and his people will be enthralled by the immediacy of his ineffable holiness, and everything will be to the praise of his glorious grace.

Moral and Decency Code

Daily, people visit the ekobridge community to share the Gospel and their stories, life's experiences and so much more with one another whilst living the present together and interacting with friends, community members as well as diverse causes. Communication on ekobridge reflects the diversity of a community of Christians worldwide connecting across different continents and countries and cultures and in hundreds of languages, posting everything from text to photos, audio notes, videos etc., yet, all united by true biblically defined love for God which must be exemplified in our communication and interaction within the community and with one another.

We recognize how important it is for ekobridge to be a place where Christians are empowered to communicate, and we take our role in keeping abuse of whatever nature of our community seriously. Consequently, we have articulated a set of community standards that outline what is and is not permitted on ekobridge. Our standards apply around the world to all types of content. They are designed to be comprehensive – for example, content that might not be considered hate speech may still be removed for amounting to bullying.

The primary aim of these standards is to promote harmonious co-existence and encourage freedom of association as Christians, permissible expressions amongst community users, and create a safe environment for all ekobridge users.

Christian Values: All contents shared on ekobridge (Adverts inclusive) must respect the sacrosanct nature of the faith professed by Bible-believing Christians on this site, and users shall not attempt to advertise anything that undermines or causes distress directly or indirectly to the Christian faith. Acting contrary to this amounts to a breach of contractual terms and we reserve the right to delete such offending communications (including adverts) and impose user restrictions on defaulting parties which may include a permanent ban from the community.

Safety: All mankind need to feel safe in order to build a community. We are committed to removing content that encourages real-world harm, including (but not limited to) physical, mental, financial, and emotional injury.

Voice: Our mission is to share the Gospel with all mankind. Whilst we permit content sharing at first instance, upon same coming to our attention, we will remove content that can occasion specific harm (This includes external links to same whether it be by way of advertising or otherwise). In addition, occasionally we may permit content that might otherwise conflict with our standards if we feel it is significant or important to the interest of ekobridge community members, however, this is at ekobridge's sole discretion to determine. We shall do this only after weighing the community interest value of such content(s) against the risk of real-world harm.

Hate Speech: We do not allow hate speech on ekobridge because it creates an environment of intimidation and exclusion and in some cases may promote real-world violence. We will not permit any links to same whether it be by way of advertising or otherwise. We define hate speech as a direct attack on people based on what we call protected characteristics — race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, and serious disability or disease. (We hold no view on the topic of sex and gender other than what the word of God says (The Bible) and we neither stand in judgement nor condemn anyone, rather, we shall continue to share the Gospel with all mankind peaceably as Christ did when He was on earth, leaving the choice of acceptance of same to each individual). We define attack as violent or dehumanizing speech and statements of inferiority.

Graphic Violence: We remove content that glorifies violence or celebrates the suffering or humiliation of others because it can create an environment that discourages unity. We allow graphic content (with some limitations) to help people raise awareness about issues but users must take into consideration the diverse age groups in the community, however, ekobridge at its sole discretion shall at all times make a final judgement call on what is deemed acceptable within the community. We will not permit any links to same whether it be by way of advertising or otherwise.

Adult Nudity and Sexual Activity: We expressly prohibit the display, dissermination, distribution and soliciting of nudity or sexual activity on ekobridge in any form or content including text, images and files, and any other achievable or subsequently created medium.

However, we emphasise we are not a movement but a community that points mankind to the true vine (Jesus - John 15:5) and together we are the branches whose identity and confidence is not linked to any one individual or group in their human capacity, rather, to the knowledge and power of who we are in Christ Jesus that our faith, hope, salvation and conviction might be firmly established in Him only and not conditioned on man who is forever imperfect. 

 

Comments, posts, distribution or circulation of pornographic, obscene, lewd and libidinous content or communications, and content inciting violence is ABSOLUTELY PROHIBITED. ekobridge reserves the right to immediately delete any offensive, defamatory, violent, pornographic, racist or xenophobic entries in any form and report same to the relevant authorities including but not limited to security agencies. Consequently, user restrictions which may include a total ban from the community can be imposed on defaulting users.

 

Comments posted are solely deemed the views of the party making such representation(s).

 

In no uncertain terms, the WORD here is as contained in John 1:1, and advocates living a Christ-like life which is epitomised in love as evidenced in John 3:16. The sole purpose of this site is to spread the WORD, consequently, all existing and potential users MUST respect the sacrosanct nature of the joint faith professed by all Christians here and SHALL not attempt to undertake any action that undermines or cause distress directly or indirectly to our mutually professed Christian faith.

 

By registering you agree that you respect the mutual faith and belief of Christian users in Christ Jesus, God the Father and God the Holy Spirit, and you acknowledge that acting to the contrary offends our collective right to association and religion. Also, acting contrary to this amounts to a breach of contractual terms and we reserve the right to delete such offending content(s) and impose user restrictions on defaulting parties (and pass on such communication to relevant security agencies where necessary).

 

ekobridge conveys the message of Christ Jesus' love to everyone. Creating an account with false information is a violation of our terms. This includes accounts registered on behalf of someone or fraudulently representing yourself as someone else.
