1. HOLY SCRIPTURE: We believe that the Holy Scriptures, the 39 books of the
   Old Testament and the 27 books of the New Testament, are the Word of God,
   inspired, infallible, authoritative, and without error in their original writings. The
   Bible is completely trustworthy and serves as the supreme authority for all faith
   and conduct.

2. GOD: We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally
   existing in three persons: Father, Son, (Jesus Christ), and Holy Spirit.

3. JESUS CHRIST: We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true Man; is
   Savior and Lord; was conceived of the Holy Spirit; born of the virgin Mary; lived a
   sinless life; performed divine miracles; died on the cross as a sacrifice for our
   sins; was buried; rose bodily from the dead; ascended into heaven; now sits at
   the right hand of God the Father; serves as High Priest and advocate; will
   personally return to the earth in power and glory; and will judge the world in
   righteousness.
                                           4
4. HOLY SPIRIT: We believe in the personality and Deity of the Holy Spirit; that His
   ministry is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, to convict men of sin, regenerate the
   hearts of sinners, and indwell, instruct, guide, sanctify, and empower the believer
   for godly living and service.

5. MAN: We believe that man was created sinless and in the image of God; that
   man chose to disobey God and fell into sin; that apart from faith in Jesus Christ
   man is lost and eternally separated from God; and that only through the
   regenerating work of the Holy Spirit, evidenced through repentance and faith in
   Jesus Christ, can man be saved and reconciled to God.

6. SALVATION: We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the
   cross, his burial, and his bodily resurrection from the dead provide the only
   grounds for justification and eternal salvation.

7. CHURCH: We believe that the Church is composed of all persons who have
   been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and have placed saving faith in Jesus Christ
   and are united together into one body of which Christ is the Head.

8. SATAN: We believe that Satan is a fallen angel and that his intent is to
   supplant God and frustrate His purpose. His destiny is eternal punishment.

9. RESURRECTION: We believe in the bodily resurrection of all the dead.
   Believers in Christ will rise to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord
   and unbelievers will rise to judgment and everlasting punishment.

The world today needs more Christian leaders; godly leaders; competent leaders;
trained leaders; leaders for the church, business, educational, and government
communities. CCM Theological Seminary is a place to receive quality master-level
training in theology that will benefit all sectors of society in Zambia, Africa, and
around the world.

Studying God’s Word is both a privilege and a command (Psalm 119; 2 Tim. 2:15;
Ezra 7:20). As we study the Bible we increase in our knowledge of God, passion for
God, and in our ability to serve Him more effectively. God is pleased as we grow in
the Christian Faith. Those around us clearly see the difference that training makes
in our lives. And we make a greater impact for Christ in the world around us.

Who needs to be Seminary trained? Any Christian with a desire to do so! Whether
you are full-time in the Lord’s work, in the market-place, or working at home,
Seminary training can benefit you. Prayerfully consider joining the CCM family of
Seminary students. We trust that it will be a life-changing spiritual experience for
you!
