Beliefs

WE BELIEVE:

  • in one God who reveals Himself in the Trinity as Father, Son and Holy Spirit – co-existent, co-equal, and co-operative in all aspects.
    • the Father is eternal, omnipotent, and the creator and ruler of the Universe.
    • the Son is Jesus Christ, completely human and completely God at the same time. He lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate his power over sin and death and to give us eternal life.
    • the Holy Spirit is present in the lives in every believer from the moment of salvation and provides us with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in all things.
  • the Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the standard against which all Christian belief and behavior is measured. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is without error and profitable for teaching and correction.
  • that humanity is made in the image of God and created for fellowship with Him, but Adam’s disobedience, the entire human race was separated from God. As a result, man is incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through his own effort alone.
  • that salvation is a free gift from God. It was purchased through the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, and provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, the only means to salvation is belief in Christ’s substitutional death and resurrection.
  • that because salvation come from God, through the blood of Jesus Christ, that the believer is secure in the salvation for eternity.
  • that the church is the body of Christ and Jesus is the head of the church. It is committed to the teachings of Christ, and it seeks to bring the Gospel to the world.
  • that Christ has, according to Scripture, instituted two church ordinances for believers.
    • believer’s baptism is an act of obedience and an expression of a personal commitment to Christian discipleship. The baptism of the believer in the name of he Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit is symbolic of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. It affirms the Holy Spirit’s work that is already experienced by the believer and this public baptism is an outward visible sign of the ongoing and lifelong sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit.
    • the Lord’s Supper is to be celebrated regularly in remembrance of Christ’s death on the cross, and in expectation of His return.
  • that Jesus commands the church to proclaim His name in all the earth and to make disciples of all nations.
