Statement of Faith

We Believe
  • The Bible is the inspired, infallible, inerrant, complete Word of God.
  • God is Triune, revealed in three persons of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, each being co-equal, co-substantial, and co-eternal with the others.
  • Jesus is the Son of God, the Messiah promised to the fathers, and the Savior of the world, sent by God so that all who believe in Him should not perish but have eternal life. Jesus died for the sins of the world, was buried, rose again from the dead on the third day, was seen by His disciples, ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of the Father, and will physically return for His Church.
  • God created humans in His own image, and created them as male and female to have dominion on the earth.
  • Through the disobedience of Adam, sin entered into the world and death through sin, and death passed on to all men, for in Adam all sinned.
  • Through faith and repentance, a man is justified in the sight of God and is saved from his sins.
  • Jesus ordained Baptism through immersion in waters as the one-act proclamation of one’s faith in and identity with the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ, and commanded His disciples to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. He ordained the regular participation in the Lord’s Supper as the on-going proclamation of the death, burial, resurrection, and the anticipatory return of the Lord.
  • The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is an experience that stands apart from salvation and is accompanied by, primarily, the gift of speaking in tongues, as seen recurrently in the Book of Acts.
  • Sanctification is a divine-act of God by which He sanctifies those who have believed in Christ; it is also a call and a command to a continuously separated life-style, holy unto God, the working out of our salvation with fear and trembling.
  • Maturity is the growth of the Christian towards perfection in conscience, communion, intellect, intuition, affection, and volition.
  • The Church is the Body of Christ; she is made up of the family in heaven and on earth, washed by the blood of the Lamb, called out of darkness into His marvellous light to proclaim His virtues.
  • The five-fold gift of ministry to the Church given by Christ-namely, the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors, the teachers- operate towards the edification and strengthening of the Church in Christ.
  • Christians must earnestly covet the best of the gifts of the Spirit.
  • The Blessed Hope of the Church is that Jesus will return for His saints; then, those who are asleep in Him will rise up from the dead, and those who are alive will be transformed into His likeness and be caught up to meet Him in the mid-air. His coming will not be as a thief in the night for the awake believers; His coming will be preceded by signs of the Last days.
  • There will be a diabolical reign of the antichrist, the man of sin, upon the earth, whom Christ will destroy at His coming.
  • There will be a final judgment in which God will judge the world according to their deeds.
  • There will be a new heaven and a new earth in which righteousness will dwell, which the saints will inherit, and which will last forever.
