What We Believe

BCC’s main work is to promote the Christian faith among all people, and teach those who want to, to keep all Jesus’commandments (Matthew 28:18-20).

Our basis of faith is built on the Bible as the Holy Scriptures, given by inspiration from God, containing everything people need for their salvation, and with the Bible as the only authoritative scripture.

  • We believe in God the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
  • We believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, born of the Father before time, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born into the world of the Virgin Mary, blameless in life, crucified and died for our sins, raised for our justification.
  • We believe that the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, will teach and remind us of all that Jesus has commanded us.

We adhere to the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds.

The BCC Federation’s beliefs are further based on the teachings, values and Christian content that Johan O. Smith represented. His articles in the publication Skjulte Skatter(Hidden Treasures), his surviving letters, and his books, published by Stiftelsen Skjulte Skatters Forlag (The Hidden Treasures Publishing Foundation) give an insight into these.

The Elders of BCC have started working on a major project to describe and elaborate on BCC’s articles of faith in a renewed format.


The key to understanding BCC is to understand what we teach. Here is a simple explanation:
