The following doctrines are regarded by CARE as crucial to the understanding of the Christian faith and its outworkings:
(a) The sovereignty and grace of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, in creation, providence, revelation, redemption and final judgement.
(b) The divine inspiration of Holy Scripture and its consequent entire trustworthiness and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
(c) The universal sinfulness and guilt of fallen man, making him subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
(d) The substitutionary sacrifice of the incarnate Son of God as the sole and all-sufficient ground of redemption from the guilt and power of sin and its consequences.
(e) The justification of the sinner solely by the grace of God, through faith in Christ crucified and risen from the dead.
(f) The illuminating, regenerating, indwelling, sanctifying and empowering work of God the Holy Spirit.
(g) The priesthood of all believers, who form the universal Church, the Body of which Christ is the Head and which is committed by His command to the proclamation of the Gospel throughout all the world.
(h) The expectation of the personal, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory.
