BIBLE: We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, without error, the revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the Divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.
GOD: We believe in the God of the Bible. He is the great “I Am” who created, sustains, and rules over all things. He is holy, righteous and loving. He is infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is omniscient – all knowing, omnipotent – all powerful, and omnipresent – always present.
JESUS CHRIST: We believe in the absolute Deity and full humanity of the Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe in His conception by the Holy Spirit and virgin birth, who by His suffering, death, and resurrection, made full satisfaction to the justice of God for the sin of man, so that by faith in His finished work, alone, all who believe are made in their salvation. He died on the cross and shed His blood as an atonement for the sins of men, and was raised bodily from the dead. He ascended into heaven where at the right hand of God the Father He is now our High Priest & Advocate. He is the Head of the church, His body. He will return imminently and personally according to His promise.
HOLY SPIRIT: We believe the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. He possesses all of God’s divine nature and attributes, and that He was sent by the Lord Jesus Christ to bring conviction of sin, lead people to repentance, and give the new birth to those who believe. He lives in the heart of every believer and fills, guides, and teaches them, and gives spiritual gifts and power, so that they can follow and serve Him, and be built up together in love as the church.
MAN: We believe that man was created in the image of God, but in Adam all men have fallen into sin and are therefore lost, and as sinners we are in need of God’s salvation, and must repent and confess our sins, and receive Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord in order to be born again and obtain eternal life or face eternal death & separation from God.
SALVATION: We believe in Salvation and Justification through faith in Jesus Christ alone. All who turn from their sins and receive Him by faith as Lord and Saviour are justified wholly on the ground of His shed blood and are born anew of the Holy Spirit into the family of God, and brought into the Kingdom of His Son.
BAPTISM & THE LORD’S COMMUNION: We believe that it is God’s command for all who believe to be baptized as a public testimony of faith. The mode of baptism we practice is full immersion. We believe that anyone who has put their faith in Jesus Christ as Saviour can participate in the Lord’s communion. The Lord’s Communion is a memorial service setting forth in sacred and symbolic manner the death of the Lord Jesus Christ.
CHURCH: We believe that the Church is one body, of which Jesus Christ is the Head, and is composed of all who are regenerated by the Holy Spirit. The duty of the Church is to proclaim by word and deeds, the Gospel of Salvation to the World, and to nurture the spiritual growth of members through prayer, teaching, fellowship, and worship.
CHRIST’S RETURN: We believe in the bodily, premillenial, personal and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ, who comes to judge the living, and to setup His kingdom on earth. At His return, there will be a resurrection of the bodies of the dead, the believers to be joined with Jesus, and the wicked to receive their final doom.
RESURRECTION: We believe in the bodily resurrection of all the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord (Heaven), and of the unbeliever to judgement and everlasting conscious punishment (Hell).
APOSTLE’S CREED: “I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth and I believe in Jesus Christ His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; He descended into Hades; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the everlasting life. Amen.”
