Statement Of Faith

God: WE BELIEVE that there is only one true God, Creator and Sustainer of all things, infinite in love, perfect in judgments and unchanging in mercy. He exists eternally in three persons: The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit, having one substance and equal power and glory.

Jesus Christ: WE BELIEVE in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, where He sits as our perpetual mediator and intercessor, His personal and visible return in great glory as Lord and Judge to consummate the eternal plan of God.

Holy Spirit: WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit is present and active in the world by whose empowering; the individuals are brought to repentance from their sins, and experience His indwelling and assurance of salvation. By that indwelling the believer receives light and power to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ in the fellowship of the believers.

Scripture: WE BELIEVE in the divine inspiration, truthfulness and authority of both the Old and the New Testaments, the only written and authoritative Word of God. They are the only infallible rule of faith and practice for all ages.

Humankind: WE BELIEVE that human beings were created in the image of God. This image was marred by sin through their disobedience, and fellowship with God was broken. This fall subjected humans to God’s wrath, and brought upon them the eternal death. The human race can be redeemed from this fallen state only by the grace of God, through faith in the finished redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ, and by the agency of the Holy Spirit.

Church: WE BELIEVE that the Church is the people of God who have been redeemed and knit together through faith in Jesus Christ and by the Holy Spirit. The Church is Christ’s body; it is visible in the world wherever believers, in obedience of faith, hear the Word, partake the sacraments, and live as disciples.

Christ’s Mandate: WE BELIEVE that the Church is given mandate to live in daily witness to the grace which comes to us in Jesus Christ and is under obligation to preach the whole Gospel to every person according to the command of Christ, and to declare God’s insistence upon righteousness and justice in all relationships and structures of human society.

Future Hope: WE BELIEVE in the resurrection of both the saved and lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and they that are unsaved unto the resurrection of eternal condemnation.
