The Myanmar Evangelical Graduate School of Theology (MEGST) subscribes to the Statement of Faith of the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) which is also adopted by the Myanmar Evangelical Christian Alliance (MECA), summarized as follows:

Article One: The Word of God
We believe the Holy Scriptures as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy, and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct;

Article Two: Concerning God
We believe there is only ONE GOD, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and the Holy Spirit;

Article Three: Jesus Christ
We believe the fully deity and humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ: God manifest in the flesh, His virgin birth, His sinless human life, His divine miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, His mediatorial work and personal return in power and glory to consummate His Kingdom;

Article Four: The Holy Spirit
We believe the illumination, regeneration, indwelling and sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit enabling the Christian to live a holy life, to witness effectively to the gospel and to serve responsibly in the world;

Article Five: Mankind and Sin
We believe the dignity of mankind created in the image of God, universal sinfulness, need of repentance, redemption, and justification by faith, apart from works, in Christ the crucified and risen Lord;

Article Six: The Church
We believe the spiritual unity of those who, having believed in Jesus Christ for their salvation, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and compose therefore the Church, the Body of Christ of which he is the Head;

Article Seven: The Great Commission
We believe the total commission of the Church to the whole of mankind in society in the contemporary context, in obedience to the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ; and

Article Eight: The Final Judgment
We believe in the bodily resurrection of all the dead; of the unbelievers unto everlasting punishment.
