The Kairos Journal affirms the inerrancy and full
trustworthiness of the Holy Scriptures and stands in continuity with the
Ecumenical Councils of the Christian Church. The editorial team of Kairos
Journal subscribes to a theological framework as distilled
in the following statement from the Universities and Colleges Christian
There is one God in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
God is sovereign in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgement.
The Bible, as originally given, is the inspired and infallible Word of God. It
is the supreme authority in all matters of belief and behaviour.
Since the fall, the whole of humankind is sinful and guilty, so that everyone
is subject to God's wrath and condemnation.
The Lord Jesus Christ, God's incarnate Son, is fully God; he was born of a
virgin; his humanity is real and sinless; he died on the cross, was raised
bodily from death and is now reigning over heaven and earth.
Sinful human beings are redeemed from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only
through the sacrificial death once and for all time of their representative and
substitute, Jesus Christ, the only mediator between them and God.
Those who believe in Christ are pardoned all their sins and accepted in God's
sight only because of the righteousness of Christ credited to them; this
justification is God's act of undeserved mercy, received solely by trust in him
and not by their own efforts.
The Holy Spirit alone makes the work of Christ effective to individual sinners,
enabling them to turn to God from their sin and to trust in Jesus Christ.
The Holy Spirit lives in all those he has regenerated. He makes them
increasingly Christlike in character and behaviour and gives them power for
their witness in the world.
The one holy universal church is the Body of Christ, to which all true
The Lord Jesus Christ will return in person, to judge everyone, to execute
God's just condemnation on those who have not repented and to receive the
redeemed to eternal glory.
