Our Beliefs

We believe in GOD


We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons – God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Each possesses all and equal attributes of deity and personality. God created the world out of nothing and continues to sustain creation. We believe it is God’s purpose and plan to redeem man from sin through the sacrifice and shed blood of his son Jesus, the Christ. 

We believe in JESUS the CHRIST


Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. On earth, Jesus was 100% God and 100% man. He is the only man ever to have lived a sinless life. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on the cross for mankind and thus, atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory (John 1:1,14, 20:28; 1 Timothy 2:5, 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5‐6; Hebrews 7:26; 1 Peter 2:22; Acts 2:22, 33; 1 Corinthians 15:3‐4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Matthew 28:6; Acts 1:9, 11; Hebrews 1:3; Acts 10:38).Jesus Christ was conceived by God the Father, through the Holy Spirit (the third person of the Trinity) in the Virgin Mary's womb; therefore, He is the Son of God (Matthew 1:18, 23‐25; Luke 1:27‐35; Isaiah 7:14).

We believe in the HOLY SPIRIT


The Holy Spirit is the third person of the trinity. He brings light to mind of sinners and awakens in them a recognition of their need of a savior. When they accept Christ as lord and savior (salvation), he permanently indwells every believer to become their source of assurance, strength and wisdom, and gives each believer spiritual gifts for the benefit of the church. The Holy Spirit guides believers in understanding and applying the Scripture. His power and control are accessed by faith, making it possible for the believer to lead a life of Christ-like character and to bring glory to the Father (John 16; 1 Corinthians 12-14; Ephesians 1:3-6).​ There is one True God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are co‐equal and co‐eternal (I John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16‐17, 28:19; Luke 1:35, 3:22; Isaiah 9:6).

MAN


Man was created in the image of God to have fellowship with God, but defied God by choosing to go his own way and fell into sin, and is lost. Man is now alienated from God and suffered the corruption of his human nature, making him unable to please God. Salvation is by grace through faith in Christ who bore our sins in His own body on the cross. The salvation of mankind is completely a work of God’s free grace, not the result of human works or goodness This salvation must be received by each person through repentance and faith. Once a person has received by faith Jesus Christ as their personal savior and lord they are guaranteed an eternal home with God forever; those who do not will live in eternal separation from God (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:10,23, 6:23; John 3:3; Acts 13:38-39, 4:12; John 3:16; Matthew 25:46; 2 Corinthians 5:1; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10).​​

The CHURCH

The church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of Jesus; great commission. Every person who is born of the Spirit is an integral part of the church as a member of the body of believers. There is a spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel, and observance of the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper (Ephesians 1:22, 2:19‐22; Hebrews 12:23; John 17:11, 20‐23; Acts 2:41‐47).

Salvation


The Grace of God, which brings salvation, has appeared to all men, through the preaching of repentance toward God and through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, His death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of good works or of any human efforts. Man is saved by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, and being justified by grace, has become heir of God according to the hope of eternal life. (Titus 2:11, 3:5‐7; Ephesians 2:8‐9; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Romans 10:9‐13; Acts 16:31; Hebrews 9:22).
