Our Statement of Faith and Beliefs
God (Mark 12:32)
There is but one God, the Maker, the Preserver and the Ruler of all things. All creatures owe the highest love, reverence and obedience to Him.
The Trinity (Matthew 28: 18-20) God reveals Himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each revelation has distinct personal attributes without division of nature, essence or being.
The Scriptures (2 Timothy 3:16) The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by inspiration of God. They are the only sufficient, certain and authoritative rule with all saving knowledge, faith and obedience.
Repentance (Acts 2:38; Romans 2:4; Corinthians 7:10; Genesis 5:24, 6:9) Repentance is evangelical grace, whereas people are made sensitive by the Holy Spirit of the manifold evil of their sins. Individuals show humility to God by detesting their sins and with Godly sorrow, endeavor to walk with God as to please Him in all things.
Faith (Matthew 17:12, Romans 1:2 and Hebrews 11:1) Faith is belief in God's authority of whatsoever is revealed in His Word concerning Christ. It is accepting and resting upon God alone for justification, sanctification and eternal life. It is wrought in the heart by the Holy Spirit and leads to a walk of holiness.
Justification (Romans 3:28, 5:1, Galatians 2:16, Romans 3:21-26, 5:18-19; 2 Corinthians 5:21) Justification is God's gracious and full acquittal for sinners who believe in Christ. It is a process by which an individual is brought into an unmerited, right relationship that is established with God and/or between people.
Sanctification (Romans 15:16) Sanctification is the process of being made holy resulting in a changed life-style for the believer. It is progressive through the supply of divine strength, which all saints seek to obtain, in cordial obedience to all Christ's Commands.
The Church (Colossians 1:18) The Lord Jesus is the Head of the Church which is composed of all His true disciples. All supreme power for its government is invested in Him. He has given needful authority for administering His Church, disciplines and worship which he has appointed. The regular officers of a Church are Pastors and Deacons.
Baptism (Mark 1:9-11; Matthew 3:13-17; Luke 3:21-22 and Acts 2:38) Baptism is an Ordinance of the Lord Jesus, obligatory upon every believer whereas an individual is immersed in water in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. It is a sign of fellowship with the death and resurrection of Christ, remission of sins and giving him/herself to God to live and walk in newness of life. It is a prerequisite for Church membership.
The Lord's Supper (I Corinthians 11:24-29) The Lord's Supper is an Ordinance of Jesus Christ to be administered with the elements of bread and fruit of the vine. It is to be observed by His Churches until the end of the world. It is in no sense a sacrifice but is designed to commemorate His death, to confirm faith and other graces of Christians, be a bond, pledge and renewal of communion with Him. Persons who receive Communion must have been baptized.
Marriage-(Genesis 2:18-24) Marriage is the union of one man and one woman. We do not recognize same-sex marriages.
