What We Believe

About Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is true God and true man.(4) He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.(5) He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures.(6) He is now at the right hand of the Majesty on high as our great High Priest.(7) He will come again to establish His kingdom of righteousness and peace.(8)

About Christian Living

It is the will of God that in union with Christ each believer should be sanctified thoroughly (16) thereby being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to God, receiving power for holy living and sacrificial and effective service toward the completion of Christ’s commission.(17) This is accomplished through being filled with the Holy Spirit which is both a distinct event and progressive experience in the life of the believer.(18)

About Church

The church is the house of God (1 Tim 3:15) and as members of the church, we are all a family of God’s children. Every child needs a family and God does not want his children growing up in isolation. The Bible says in Ephesians 2:19 that “Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God”.

The universal Church, of which Christ is the Head, consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, regenerated by the Holy Spirit, and commissioned by Christ to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the Gospel to all nations. (20) The local church, the visible expression of the universal Church, is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together to worship God, to observe the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper, to pray, to be edified through the Word of God, to fellowship, and to testify in word and deed to the good news of salvation both locally and globally. The local church enters relationships with other like-minded churches for accountability, encouragement, and mission. (21)

About the Bible

The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of people. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.(11)
