WHAT WE BELIEVE

THE BIBLE

We believe in the Bible as the complete and infallible Word of God, revealed to man by inspiration of the Holy Spirit. We believe that the sixty-six books of the Bible are the Word of God plenary (inspired in all its parts alike). (1)

We believe the Bible has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.(2)

GOD:

We believe there is but one living, eternal and true God, who knows everything, perfect in all His attributes. We believe He is one in essence, eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence or being. To him we owe the highest love, reverence and obedience. (3)

 

We believe that the Father is the Creator of all things visible and invisible, and author of the merciful plan of salvation from before the foundation of the world.

We believe that the Son is eternally begotten from the Father, and the only mediator between God and men; He was incarnated by the grace of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary; and in Him coexists two natures: divine and human, in one person.

We believe that the Holy Spirit proceeds eternally from the Father and the Son; He is revealing the knowledge of God to man by the Holy Scriptures; Sanctifier, Persuader, Conforter, Giver of Power and sole representative of Christ on Earth.

 

MAN: 

We believe that man was created by God in His image and likeness. Man was created free from sin with a rational nature, intelligence, volition, self determination, and moral responsibility to God. (4)

We believe that in Adam's sin of disobedience to the revealed will of God and to the word of God, man lost his innocence, he became mortal, and sin committed caused enmity between man and God. Man turned completely corrupt and utterly incapable of choosing or doing that which is acceptable to God. (5)

 

We believe that man remained without power to have the ability to restore itself, man is lost without any hope. It is impossible for man, by any works, to repay the debt of their sins before the Heavenly Court. (6)

 

SALVATION:

We believe that salvation is entirely the work of God's grace through the redemptive work of our Lord Jesus Christ, and is not based on human merit or works. In its broadest sense salvation it includes the election, regeneration, justification, sanctification and glorification. We believe that there is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord. (7)

We believe that regeneration, or the new birth, is a work of the grace of God by which the sinner becomes a new creature in Christ Jesus. It is a change of heart caused by the Holy Spirit convincing sin.

We believe that the sinner responds in repentance towards God and with faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Repentance and faith are inseparable experiences of grace. Repentance is a genuine turning from sin to God. Faith is the acceptance of Jesus Christ and commitment of the entire personality to Him as Lord and Savior.

 

We believe that all the redeemed, once they have been saved are saved by God's power and are thus secure in Christ forever. As a result of this regeneration do good works, not to be saved, but because we already are. (8)

THE CHURCH: 

We believe that all who trust in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, are immediately placed by the Holy Spirit into one united spiritual Body, the church, the bride of Christ, of which Christ is the head. (9)

We believe the church is a unique spiritual organism designed by Christ, made up of all believers who are born again in the current era. (10)

We believe that the purpose of the church is to glorify God by building itself up in the faith, to be instructed in the Word, fellowshipping saving ordinances and by extending and communicating the gospel to the whole world. (11)

We believe in the provision of gifts of God to their children, and their classification as gifts of the Spirit and Ministry gifts (12)

 

We believe in the privilege of believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of the Word of God, which, however, clearly forbids the use of Christian liberty as an occasion for sinful living and carnality. (13)

 

ORDINANCES

We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried and resurrected, the believer's death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. It is a public testimony of the inner faith of the believer in Christ. (14)

We believe that the Lord's Supper is an act of obedience by which the Church, to participate of the body and blood of Christ, commemorating the death of the Redeemer and anticipating His second coming. (15)

 

END TIMES

We believe in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ in two stages: an invisible to rapture the church before the Great Tribulation; and a visible to establish His millennial reign on earth, at the end of the Great Tribulation. (16)

We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved go to eternal life (17), and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment. (18)
