Statements of Belief

  1. We believe that the Bible, both the New and Old Testaments, are the only inspired, infallible and authoritative source of Christian faith and practice. The Bible is the supreme revelation verbally inspired by God to man, superior to conscience and reason, though not contrary to reason (2 Timothy 3:16,17; John 17:17).
  2. We believe that there is only One true God, who has revealed Himself as an eternal God embodying a relationship and association as: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17; John 1:1-4; Luke 3:22).
  3. We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but as a result of his voluntary transgression is lost and incapable of saving himself (Genesis 1:26; 2:16-17; 3:6; Romans 5:2; 6:23).
  4. We believe that the only hope for man is to believe on Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, Creator of all things, being fully God and fully man. We further believe that redemption is found by believing in the person, death, and resurrection of Christ (Romans 10:9-10,13; John 3:16; Ephesians 2:1-10).
  5. We believe that the Holy Spirit lives in all believers, and through the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, every believer is empowered supernaturally for Christian service, and gifted for such service. An evidence of the Holy Spirit’s presence in a believer’s life is speaking in tongues as the Holy Spirit gives utterance. The Holy Spirit also enables believers to live in His overflowing fullness, to have Christ-like character, exhibit a Godly life, and to have an intensified consecration to God and His work (Luke 11:13; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4; 2:42; 8:17; 10:44-46; 19:6; Galatians 5:22-23; 1 Corinthians12).
  6. We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ, Christ being the Head and Lord, and is not intended to be the edifice or institution. The Church is both universal and local and has experienced the habitation of the presence of God through the Holy Spirit, having been regenerated and therefore reconnected to God through relationship. We believe in the autonomy of the local church expression, and adhere to the Scriptural revelation of its life, ministry, and worship. The mission and vision of the Church is evangelism, worship, apprenticeship, discipleship, and loving and caring for one another (Matthew 28:1-20; Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 2:19-22; 4:11-16; 1 Corinthians 12:12-28; Mark 16:15-16).
  7. We believe that the reward of those who confess and believe Christ as their Lord and Savior is eternal life. Repentance towards God and faith towards our Lord Jesus Christ produces the work of justification in the believer (John 3:16-17; 14:2-3; Luke 23:43; Romans 10:9).
  8. We believe that not accepting Christ is a step towards condemnation and we are, therefore, consenting to an eternity apart from God’s presence, which the Bible calls the second death (Matthew 24:36-51; 25:46; John 14:6; 3:18; Romans 6:23; Revelations 20:11-15; 21:8).
  9. We believe that salvation is by faith and through grace alone. We are not justified by good works. We further believe that the emphasis for a continual walk in grace should be of heart righteousness and purity. We hold that all believers must live a pure life, being an example to both the believing and unbelieving (Romans 4:1-5; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Ephesians 2:8-10; 1 Thessalonians 4:12).
  10. We believe that salvation, deliverance, and redemption are provided for in the atonement of Christ and is the privilege of all believers. We further believe that divine healing for the physical, emotional, and spiritual are an integral part of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Isaiah 53.4; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24-25).
  11. We believe in God’s calling and the gifting of the believers in the Body of Christ, including but not limited to various ministries, such as apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, teachers, and deacons. We believe that the Church shares in the responsibility for recognizing, equipping, and commissioning these ministries for the edification and building up of the Body of Christ and the fulfillment of God’s Kingdom (Ephesians 4:11-13; 1 Corinthians 12:12-30; Romans 12:3-8; Matthew 16:33).
  12. We believe in two sacraments of the Church: a) The Sacrament of Holy Communion, b) and The Sacrament of Water Baptism - not as a requirement to salvation (Acts 2:38; Matthew 26:26-30; 1 Corinthians 10:16-17; 11:16).
  13. We believe that the imminent and blessed hope of the Church is in the resurrection of those who are dead in Christ and their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord (John 5:28-29; Romans 8:23; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52;16:22; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Titus 2:13).
  14. We believe in the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ, the restitution of all things spoken by the mouth of all the prophets since the world began, and the consummation of the Kingdom of God (Matthew 23:39; 24:42-44; 25:31; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18; Acts 1:11; 3:19-21; Revelation 11:15).
