What We Believe
Statement of Faith
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, supernaturally inspired. We believe that it’s inerrant in the original manuscripts and preserved by God; and that it’s a divinely authoritative standard for every age and every life.
We believe that the Godhead exists eternally in three persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and that these three are one God. We believe that God is the absolute and sole creator of the universe and that creation was by divine command. We believe that God, by His sovereign choice and out of love for men, sent Christ into the world to save all sinners.
We believe that Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man. He was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life. He was crucified, died as a penalty for our sins and was raised from the dead bodily on the third day. Later, he ascended to the Father’s right hand where He is the head of the church and intercedes for believers. He is coming again personally, bodily and visibly to this earth to set up His kingdom. We believe that since in His death, by His shed blood, the Lord Jesus Christ made a perfect atonement for sin, redeeming us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us. We are saved and justified on the simple and single ground of the shed blood. We believe that such salvation with its forgiveness of sins, its impartation of a new nature and its hope of eternal life is entirely apart from good works, baptism, church membership or man’s effort and is of pure grace.
We believe that it’s the goal of every Christian to become a disciple of Christ by growing toward spiritual maturity through the knowledge of and obedience to the Word of God and submission to the Holy Spirit, who indwells and seals all believers at the moment of salvation. Believers must seek the fullness of the Spirit since it’s His influence that will bring about victorious Christian living on earth. We believe that every true Christian is to be a dynamic part of a local church since this is God’s primary context for spiritual development and community impact.
What We Believe
We believe Jesus is our Hope. It is only through Him that we are reconciled first to God and then able to reconcile with each other. (Eph. 2: 14–16) Then:
- We become Christ’s Ambassadors of Reconciliation (2 Cor. 5:18–20)
- We become sign-posts toward Christ - the Hope of our city (Col. 1:27)
- We fulfill Jesus’ prayer for Unity (so the world will know) – (John 17:23)
