our beliefs

The Holy Bible - The Bible, is the only authoritative Word of God. It alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths. In its original writing, it is inspired, infallible and inerrant (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; Romans 16:25-26)

 

There is one God -  God eternally exist in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and co-eternal (I John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 28:19; Isaiah 9:6; Hebrews 3:7-11).

Jesus Christ is God the Son - On earth, Jesus was 100% God and 100% man. Jesus is the second person of the Trinity. 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: yet interceding on our behalf, and will return again with power, glory and majesty. (John 1:1, 14; I Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-6).

Repentance - Is the commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to follow Christ. Repentance allows us to receive His redemption and to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit. Through repentance we receive forgiveness of sins and appropriate salvation (Acts 2:21; I John 1:9).

We are saved - By grace we are saved through faith in Jesus Christ; His death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human efforts (Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16).

Baptism of the Holy Spirit - Is given at Pentecost, it is the promise from the Father, sent by Jesus after His Ascension, to empower the Church to preach the Gospel throughout the whole earth (Joel 2:28-29; Acts 1:5,2:1-4).

In Two Church Ordinances - Water Baptism & The Lord’s Supper.

Water Baptism -  In following the faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the new convert is commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38; Mark 16:16).

The Lord’s Supper - Is a unique time of communion in the presence of God. The elements such as bread and grape juice (the Body and Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ) are taken in remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross (Matthew 26:26-29; I Corinthians 11:23-25).

Healing of the sick - Healing is illustrated in the life and ministry of Jesus and included in the commission of Jesus to His disciples. It is given as a sign for believers to follow. It is also a part of Jesus’ work on the Cross and one of the gifts of the Spirit (Psalms 103:2-3; Isaiah 53:5; Mark 16:17-18).

Heaven -  Is the eternal dwelling place for all believers in the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Matthews 5:3, 12, 20).

Hell -  After living one life on earth, the unbelievers will be judged by God and sent to Hell where they will be eternally tormented with the Devil and the Fallen Angels (Matthew 25:41; Mark 9:43-48).
