(1) The Bible (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
We believe the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the uniquely Holy Spirit inspired written word of God, possessing God’s authority in all matters of faith and life. They are to be interpreted according to their context and purpose, in reverent obedience to the Lord who speaks through them.
(2) About the Trinity (John 10:30; 1 Peter 1:2)
We believe in one true God eternally existing in three distinct persons (God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost) each of Whom is fully and equally God; possesses all of the divine nature and attributes, and is totally worthy of our worship and service.
(3) About God (Gen. 1:26)
We believe that God the Father is the first person of the Trinity; and is the Creator of both visible and invisible creatures. We believe that God the Father is infinite, eternal, all-knowing, all-wise, ever-present, and all-powerful. He is unchangeable in His holiness, justice, wisdom and love. He sustains and governs all things according to His sovereign will for His own glory. He is the Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the Father of all true believers
(4) About Jesus (Matthew 1:18,25; John 1:1-4,14; Hebrews 4:15;9:15-22)
We believe that Jesus Christ is the second person of the Trinity and is the only begotten eternal Son of God, the only mediator between God and human kind. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and fully shared and fulfilled our humanity in a life of perfect obedience to God. His death in our place revealed God’s divine love and upheld God’s divine justice, paying the penalty for our sins and removing our guilt. He rose from the grave the third day, victorious over death.
(5) About the Holy Spirit (John 14:15-26; 16:5-16; Ephesians 1:13-14)
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, Who specially came into the world on the day of Pentecost to glorify Christ and to apply his work of salvation. He convicts sinners, imparts spiritual life and gives a true understanding of the Scriptures. He indwells all believers, brings assurance of salvation and produces increasing likeness to Christ. He builds up the Church and empowers its members for worship, service and mission.
(6) About Salvation (John 3:16; 5:24; Titus 3:3-7)
We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for forgiveness of sins and salvation, which is the free gift of God’s grace. Salvation is effected by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit and cannot be secured by man’s works or personal merit. Salvation is only appropriated by a person placing his faith in the finished work of Christ.
(7) About the Church (Philippians 2:1-4)
We believe that the church is the body of Christ of which Jesus is the Head and whose members are those who have truly received Christ by faith. We believe that the local church is a tangible expression of the body of Christ in a particular location. Since all members of the body of Christ are united in Christ by the same Spirit, they should live in love, harmony and unity.
(8) About Water baptism (Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Matthew 3:13-17)
We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion in water of a believer, into the name of the Father, and Son, and Holy Spirit; to show forth our faith in the crucified, buried, and risen Savior. It symbolizes our death to sin and resurrection to a new life. It is obedience to the command of Christ.
(9) About Holy Communion (Mark 14:22-25,Luke 22:18-20,1 Corinthians 11:23-25)
We believe that the Holy Communion was instituted by our Lord Jesus Christ shortly before His death. He commanded all Christians to gather together regularly to share the bread and wine till He comes back again. The Holy Communion is designed to commemorate Christ’s death, to confirm the faith of Christians, and to be a bond, pledge, and renewal of their communion with Him, and of their church fellowship.
(10) About Baptism by the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:11; Acts 2:4)
We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is given to believers who ask for it. The Holy Spirit in a person’s life is evidenced by changes in his life, including a renewed love for God, and people, a commitment to the scriptures and holy living. The spirit filled believer has the capability of speaking with new tongues whether or not he or she chooses to exercise this gifting.
(11) About Divine Healing (Luke 9:11; Matthew 9:35; 10:1; Acts 10:38)
We believe divine healing is available through the redemptive work of Christ on the cross. Christ purchased our soul from the curse of sin. He bore our infirmities and carried our sorrow – By His stripes we are healed.
(12) About following Christ (Ephesians 5:1-6; Romans 15)
We believe that every Christian should live for Christ and not for himself and should, by the power of the indwelling Spirit, allow Christ to manifest His life through him to God’s glory. By ever increasing obedience to the Word of God, each believer should mature and progressively become more like Jesus.
(13) About the future (Matthew 25:31-46; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ will return in glory. He will raise the dead and judge the world in righteousness. The wicked will be sent to eternal punishment and the righteous will be welcomed into a life of eternal joy in fellowship with God. God will make all things new and will be glorified forever.
