IDENTITY OF MCI
WHO ARE WE ?
1.We are the MIDDLE EASTERN CHURCH. The beginning and the end of history originates from and to the Middle East, and we believe that through the Gospel which began from Jerusalem, we will see the full number of gentiles returning to Christ, and this gospel will be witnessed again to the Jews at the end. We believe that the worship of Egypt and Assyria will play a great role in this final process. We are the church committed for this final great harvest of the Middle East.
"And that repentance for the forgiveness of sins
should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem"
"In that day there will be a HIGHWAY from Egypt to Assyria, and Assyria will come into Egypt, and Egypt into Assyria,
and the Egyptians will worship with the Assyrians.
In that day Israel will be the third with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth,whom the Lord of hosts has blessed,
saying,Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel my inheritance.”
2.We are the CHRIST CHURCH. We believe that Jesus Christ is the only Savior, and that there is only one truth. Everyone is to be loved and served, but the truth cannot be distorted. We sternly reject any form and attempt of religious integration and religious pluralism. We define international declaration of religious integration as apostasy, for such is an attempt to deny the uniqueness of Christ. We believe in inerrancy of the Scripture, thus sternly reject any social and religious attempt to alter even a single truth of the Scripture, such as acknowledgement of homosexuality. We will continue our non-violent resistance of faith against the power of apostasy until the end.
"Jesus said to him:
I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone.
And there is salvation in no one else, For there is no other name under heaven
given among men by which we must be saved.”
3.We are the INTERNATIONAL CHURCH. We are a multi-ethic church composed of all nations, tribes, and peoples, and reject the notion of belonging to any particular religion of a particular tribe. All tribes become one in Christ, and every historical experience carried by each nation makes abundant the glory of Christ. We have active solidarity with all nations in Christ and the absolute truth of the Scripture.
"And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit
and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.
And how is it that we hear, each of us in his own native language?"
After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation,
from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb,
clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 10 and crying out with a loud voice,
“Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”
