Statement of Faith

Statement of Faith

We believe in the Scripture of the Old and New Testaments as

verbally inspired by God, inerrant in the original writings,

and of supreme and final authority in all matters of life

and faith.

 

We believe in one God eternally existing in three equal persons, the

Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

 

We believe that God the Son became incarnate in the person of

Jesus Christ, who was begotten by the Holy Spirit and

born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.

 

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to

the Scriptures as a substitutionary sacrifice; and that all

that believe in Him are justified by His blood, shed for all

mankind.

 

We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in

His ascension in to Heaven, and in His present life for us

as High Priest, Intercessor and Advocate.

 

We believe in a pre-millennial advent of our Lord Jesus Christ in the

Glory of His Father to set up in the earth a Kingdom in

which He shall reign in righteousness and peace.

 

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person, possesses all the

distinctively divine attributes. He is God. He convicts the

world of sin, righteousness and judgment. He

regenerates, seals, and sets apart the believer to a holy

life. The baptism in the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2:4

is given to believers who ask for it.

 

We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned

and thereby incurred not only physical death but also

spiritual death, which is separation from God; and that all

human beings are born with sinful nature.

 

We believe that whoever by faith apart from works of any kind,

receives the Lord Jesus Christ as his Saviour, is ‘born

from above’ and thereby becomes child of God,

‘created in Jesus Christ’ unto good works.

 

We believe that born-again believers still possess the fallen Adamic

nature in this life but that God has made full provision

whereby His children may be more than conquerors

through Lord Jesus Christ by the power of Holy Spirit,

who indwells in each one.

 

We believe that God heals in answer to believing prayer with or

without means in accordance with His sovereign

discretion and will.

 

We believe that the Church in its invisible form is universal, true

body and bride of Christ, and all who are born again are

members, regardless of organizational affiliation.

 

We believe that Christ has ordained the observance of water baptism

and Lord’s Supper till He returns.

 

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust,

unending blessedness of the saved and the unending

punishment of the lost.
