Our Beliefs

God

We believe that there is only one true, living and eternal God and that the Godhead is revealed as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.                                   

(Deuteronomy 6:4; John 14:9-11; 1 Corinthians 8:4-6)

The Bible

We believe that the Holy Scripture are the Old and New Testaments; the inspired and infallible Word of God and therin is found the only reliable guide of Christian faith and conduct.

(Peter 1:25; 2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Man

We believe that God created man in His own image to bring Him honor through obedience, and that when man disobeyed, he became a fallen and sinful creature, unable to save himself. We believe that infants are in the covenant of God’s grace and that all persons become accountable to God when they reach a state of moral responsibility.

(Genesis 1:26-27; Isaiah 43:7; Romans 1:8-23)

Salvation

We believe that Salvation (regeneration, sanctification, justification and redemption) has been provided for all mankind through the redemptive work (life, death, resurrection, ascension, and intercession) of Jesus Christ, and that this Salvation can be received only through repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

(John 3:3-8, John 3:16)

Assurance and Endurance

We believe that those who abide in Christ have the assurance of salvation. However, we believe that the Christian retains his freedom of choice; therefore, it is possible for him to turn away from God and be finally lost.

(1 Corinthians 10:13, Matthew 10:22)

Christian Duties

We believe that Christians should live faithfully by serving in and through the local church, praying diligently, witnessing earnestly, practicing tolerance, showing loving kindness, giving as God prospers and conducting themselves in such a way as to bring glory to God.

(Matthew 28:18-20, II Chronicles 7:14, Matthew 6:1-13, Acts 1:8)

The Church

We believe that the Church Universal is the Body of Christ, the fellowship of all believers, and that its members have been called out from the world to come under the dominion and authority of Christ its head. We believe that a local church is a fellowship of Christians, a part of the body of Christ, voluntarily banded together for worship, nurture, and service.

(Acts 2:38-47)

Ordinances

We believe that baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances instituted by Christ to be observed by Christians only. We also believe that the Biblical mode of baptism is immersion and that participation in the Lord’s Supper should be open to all Christians.

(Baptism: Matt. 3:13-15, Romans 6:3-5; The Lord’s Supper: Matt. 26:26-29)

The Lord’s Day

We believe in the sanctity of the Lord’s Day, the first day of the week, and that this day ought to be observed by worshiping God, witnessing for Christ, and ministering to the needs of humanity.

(Isaiah 58:13-14, Mark 2:27-28)

Last Things

We believe in the personal return of Jesus Christ, and in the bodily resurrection of the dead. We believe that God will judge all mankind of Jesus Christ; that He will reward the righteous with eternal life in Heaven, and that He will banish the unrighteous to everlasting punishment in Hell.

(Luke 12:40; John 14:3; Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)
