Core Beliefs

WHAT WE BELIEVE

About God: God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. (Genesis1:1,26,27 & 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; I Peter 1:2; II Corinthians 13:14)

About the Bible: The Bible is God’s word to all mankind. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error. (II Timothy 3:16 & 1:13; II Peter 1:20,21; Psalm 119:105, 160 & 12:6; Proverbs 30:5)

About Jesus Christ: Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal; with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all by dying on the cross. He arose from the dead on the third day to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords. {Matthew 1:22,23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5 & 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14,15; I Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; I Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13}

About the Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make mankind aware of our need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation providing power for living, understanding of spiritual truth and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under his control daily. {II Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13 &14:16,17; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 2:12 &3:16; Ephesians 1:13 & 5:1; Galatians 5:25}

About Humanity: We are all made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. We are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although mankind has tremendous potential for good, we are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called sin. This attitude separates us from God. {Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a & 59:1,2; Romans 3:23}

About Eternity: We all were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. The place of eternal separation from God is called Hell. Heaven is the place of eternal union and eternal life with God. {John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15 (Hell) & 21:27 (Heaven); Matthew 25:41}

About Salvation: Salvation is a gift from God to mankind. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can we be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life with God begins the moment we receive Jesus Christ into our life through faith. In obedience to His command, we follow in His example to be baptized. {Romans 6:23 & 5:1; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 14:6 & 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26}

About the Church: The church is the Body of Christ. Jesus Christ is the Head of the church. Members of the church are those who have trusted and placed their faith in the completed work of Christ.
