OUR BELIEFS


THE BIBLE
The Old and New Testaments are the inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of God. In all the Word we find revelation of Gods eternal unchanging will for men of all ages. It is the divine and final authority for the Christian life.


GOD

There is only one God. The Creator of all things, who is infinitely perfect and eternally existent in three persons - The Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


CHRIST

Jesus Christ in the union of God and man. He is the true God and true man, conceived and born of the Virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life and died on the cross as a sacrifice for the sins of all men. He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into the Heaven and is presently seated at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest an Advocate.


SALVATION
Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin, which resulted in his spiritual death of separation from God. Only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained. this process of regeneration called "born again" in the Word, takes place through a combination of faith and confession. As a person makes the decision to believe in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, then confessed with his mouth the Lordship if Jesus in his life, a miracle of regeneration by the Holy Spirit takes place. A new Christian is born in the kingdom of God - for him old things are passed away and all things become new.


BAPTISM

Water baptism and the Lord's Supper are ordinances to be observed by the church during the present age. They are not, however to be confused with or regarded as a means of salvation. The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provided the only grounds for justification and salvation.


HOLY SPIRIT

The present day ministry of the Holy Spirit is to comfort and guide the believer with final purpose of glorifying the Lord Jesus Christ in the earth. During this age He dwells, guide, instructs, and empowers the believer for Godly living and service.


PRAYER

Every born again believer should maintain a consistent prayer life, in both praying with the understanding and praying in the spirit.


FAITH

Without faith it is impossible to please God. The Word tells us that the just (those who have been justified by the blood of Jesus) shll live by faith. The redemptive work of Jesu snot only provided salvation for the believers, but healing, and prosperity as well for our spiritual, soul and physical an. We are redeemed from the curse of the law (poverty, sickness, oppression, etc.) Our lives can be prosperous and healthy in every realm as we walk in the light of redemption by the faith in God's Word.


THE CHURCH

The universal church is composed of all those who are born again. Through this new birth we are united together in the Body of Christ. Jesus Christ is the Lord an head of the church, and has provided leadership for the local church through ministry gifts, which only He can give. Every local church has the right under Christ to decide and govern its own affairs.


CHRIST'S RETURN

The premillennial second coming of Jesus Christ is two-par in nature. He will come in the air to resurrect the righteous dead and catch the living saints. He will then come to the earth to establish His physical Kingdom and begin His thousand year reign.


There will be a bodily resurrection of the dead, of the believer, to everlasting joy with the Lord and of the unbeliever to judgment and eternal punishment.
