Belief Statement

We believe that the Bible both old and new testaments were written without any errors by men of God as they were inspired and moved by the Holy Spirit. Through this the complete revelation of God’s will was given for the salvation of men and the divine and final authority for all in the Christian faith and life.

God

God (Jehovah) is the first person of the Godhead or the trinity. There is only one God who is the creator of all things in the universe past, present, future and the He is the only one who is Sovereign and Absolute in His authority. He is infinite, perfect and existing eternally.

Creator: Genesis 1:1, John 1:1

Three dimensions of God: 1 John 5:7, Matt 28:19, 1 Tim 3:16

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the Second person of the Godhead. He is true God and true man having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin name Mary. He died on the cross and was the complete and final sacrifice for man’s sins according to the scriptures. He further arose bodily from the dead on the third day ascended into heaven where He sits on the right Hand of God the Father and is our High Priest and Advocate. He is the Way the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Him

Son of God: Colossians 2:9

Sacrifice for mankind: Luke 3:21-22, Philippians 2:5-11

The Advocate: John 3:36, John 3:31-32, john 14:6

Holy Spirit

He is the third person of the Godhead. The ministry of the Holy Spirit is the convict men of sin, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service. He is also called the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth

Comforter/Spirit of Truth: John 14:17, John 14:26

Man

He was created after the image of God but fell in sin and is therefore lost. Only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can he obtain salvation and spiritual life by confessing his sins and accept the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Lord.

Salvation

The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provides the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe and receive Christ by faith are born of the Holy Spirit thus become children of God.

Atonement through the Blood of Jesus Christ:

John 15:1-5, John 14:26 Romans 5:9-11, Ephesians 1:7,

Revelation 12:11

Future Event

There will be a bodily resurrection of all the dead; of the believer to everlasting life, blessedness and joy with the Lord and of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting punishment.

The Church

The true Church is made of all such persons who through saving faith in the Lord Jesus have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are together united in the body of Jesus Christ of which He is the Head.

Baptism and Communion

One is baptized by immersion in water soon after accepting Christ as their

personal Savior. This is shown as a testimony of being dead to sin and

resurrection to a new life in Christ Jesus. The Lord’s Supper is a memorial

service setting forth in sacred and symbolic manner the death of the Lord Jesus Christ. All true believers and only believers should share in this.
