What we believe

The Sinfulness of Man

Each human is a sinner by nature and is in need of divine salvation.

Jesus’ Substitutionary Death

Jesus, the Son of God, has died a substitutionary death for the sins of the whole world.

Resurrection of Jesus Christ

Jesus physically rose from the dead.

God’s Righteous Judgment

Eternal life for the saved (those who believe in Jesus Christ) and eternal damnation for the unsaved (unbelievers).

Salvation

Salvation is a gift from God. It is given by grace through faith for those who believe in Christ and his substitutionary death on the cross.

Assurance of Salvation

A child of God cannot lose his/her position with God, but will be punished of God if he/she lives in sin.

Inspiration

All Scripture contained in the Old and New Testaments is verbally, entirely, and inerrantly inspired by God. The Bible is the final revelation of God and there are no other writings, which are inspired in the same sense.

Trinity

There is but one God eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Each is infinite, eternal, and almighty.

The Person of Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy  Spirit, born of a virgin, and lived a sinless life. Jesus Christ, the Son, is fully God and fully man, without his human and divine nature being blended with each other.

Church

Every born-again believer is a member of the universal Body of Christ. The purpose of the local church is to build up believers and to evangelize the unbelievers.

Baptism by Water

Water baptism follows the conversion to faith. It does not bring the forgiveness of sins, as all who believe in Jesus are already justified by the shedding of His blood. Water baptism is a profession of one’s faith in Jesus Christ.

Communion / The Lord’s Supper

Communion is celebrated in remembrance of Jesus’ atoning death.

Angels

All the angels, holy and fallen ones, are created by God and are sentient beings. Satan, originally created by God for good, has fallen through his own choice.

The Second Coming of Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ will return to rapture His church. Immediately following this event there will be the seven-year tribulation period, when God will pour out His wrath upon the earth. Concluding this, Christ will come again to the earth and establish His rule for a 1,000 year period.

Judgment Seat of Christ

Immediately after the rapture, the church will be judged by Christ. At this judgement believers will be rewarded for their walk on earth.
