Beliefs


THE ETERNAL GODHEAD

We believe in the unity of the true and living God who is the eternal self-existent one, who has revealed himself as one being in three persons- Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and who is the Creator and preserver of things visible and invisible - (Deuteronomy 6:4;Mark 12:29;Matthew 28:19;Genesis 1:1; Psalm 86:9-10; Isaiah 43:10-11;John1:1-3)

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST 

We Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the second person of the triune Godhead, who was and is the eternal Son of God; that he became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and was born of the virgin Mary. We Believe in his sinless life, miraculous ministry, substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, glorious ascension, and abiding intercession -(Isaiah 7:14; Matthew1;23;Hebrews 7:26, 1 Peter 2:22; 10:38;2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 9:12; Luke 24:39; 1 Corinthians 15:4; Acts 1:9; Ephesians 4:8-10, Romans 8:34; Hebrews 7:25) 

THE HOLY SPIRIT 

We Believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the triune Godhead who proceeds from the Father and the Son, and is ever present and active in the work of convicting and regenerating the sinner, and sanctifying and guiding the believer into all truth- (John 19:8-10, Romans 8:14)

THE HOLY SCRIPTURES 

We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, namely the Old and New Testaments in their original writings. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is infallible, inerrantly revealing the will of God concerning us all in all things necessary to our salvation, and is absolutely supreme and sufficient in authority in all matters o the faith and conduct. The Bible does not simply contain the Word of God, but is, in reality, the complete revelation and very Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, so that whatever is not contained therein is not to be enjoined as an article of Faith-(Matthew 5:17,18;24:35;John 4:39;2 Timothy 3:16,17;2 Peter 1:19-21) 

THE ATONEMENT 

We Believe that God's answer to man's sinful state is in the death of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ upon the cross, whose sufferings and shed blood have made full atonement for the sins of the whole world, both original and actual, and that there is no other ground for salvation - (2 Corinthians 5:18-21; Galatians 1:4; Ephesians 1:7; Colossians 1:14; Hebrews 9:25, 25; 1 Peter 1:19, 20) 

THE FALL OF MAN

 We believe that God created man on his image and likeness, morally upright and perfect but fail by voluntary transgression. Consequently, all men fail and were separated from original plan of righteousness that God intended for mankind. Though transgression entered via one man to many, through the obedience of the Son of God the many were made righteous (Genesis 1:26-32, 3:1-7, Romans 5:12-21).


WATER BAPTISM

We believe in baptism as it is following the footsteps of our Master. Baptism is public declaration as a believer by dying and resurrecting with Christ, as we get baptized through the name of the father, the son and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16. Acts 10:47-48, Acts 2:38-39, Roman 6:4-11, Colossians 2:12).


THE CHURCH

The church is the dwelling of God’s spirit. The church is the bride and body that received the divine calling from Jesus Christ. The church is us, the gathering of the saints who have been born again of the spirit and water, who their names have been written in the book of life.  Through the blood of Christ we have been redeemed from every tribe, language, people, nation and have been made one, a kingdom and priests to serve our God. Ephesian 1:22-23, Ephesian 2:22, Hebrew 12:23, Ephesian 4:1-6, Revelation 5:9-10, Rev 22:17

SALVATION OF MAN 

We believe salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. This experience is also known as the new birth and is an instantaneous and complete operation of the Holy Spirit whereupon the believing sinner is regenerated, justified, and adopted into the family of God and becomes a new creation in Christ Jesus and heir of eternal life-(Titus2:11, 3:5-7; 1 Peter 1:23; 1John 5:1) 

THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT 

We Believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is the bestowing of the believer with power to be an effective witness for Christ. This experience is distinct from, and subsequent to, the new birth; is received by faith; is received by faith, and is accompanied by the manifestation of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives utterance, as the initial evidence - (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4,5,8; 2:1-4; 8:15-19; 11:14-17;19:1-7) 

THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST 

We Believe in the premillennial, imminent and personal return of our Lord Jesus Christ to gather his people unto himself. Having this glorious hope and earnest expectation, we purify ourselves, even as he is pure, so that we may be ready to meet him when he comes- (John 14:1-3; James 5:7-8; Titus 2:13; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17;2 Thessalonians 2:1; 1 John 2:28; 3:2,3) 

THE PUNISHMENT OF THE WICKED 

We Believe in the everlasting punishment of the wicked (in the sense of eternal torment) who willfully reject and despise the love of God manifested in the great sacrifice of his only Son upon the cross for their salvation- Matthew 25:46; 13:49-50;Luke 12:47-48; 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:11-15. We believe that the devil and his angels and whosoever is not found written in the book of life shall be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death- Revelation 19:20; Revelation 20:10-15.

THE NEW HEAVENS AND THE NEW EARTH 

"We according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth wherein dwells righteousness" -(2 Peter 3:13; Revelation Chapters 21 and 22)
