We believe that the original writings of the Bible are inspired by God, infallible and inerrant revelation to man which consists of sixty six books and is supreme and final authority of faith and life (2 Timothy 3:16 ; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
We believe that there is only one living and true God (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 45:5-7; 1 Corinthians 8:4). He is infinite, omniscient (John 4:24), perfect in all His attributes, one in essence, eternally existing in three Persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14).
We believe that Jesus Christ is God’s manifestation in flesh. He is the only begotten Son of God, born of a virgin, sinless and perfect (John 10:30; 14:9; Col. 1:15-17). He died for our sins and He rose from the dead; victorious over sin and death, and is ascended back to Heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Heavenly Father (Romans 1:4; 4:25; 1 Corinthians 15:20, 21).
Man (mankind) is the special creation of God, made in His own image. He created them male and female as the crowning work of His creation, free of sin; to glorify Him (Genesis 2:7, 15-25; James 3:9). However, man freely chose to disobey God, bringing sin, death and condemnation to all mankind. All human beings are therefore totally depraved by nature and by choice. For this reason man is unable to save himself by his own merit and can be saved only by God’s sovereign grace. (Psalm 14:1-3; Jeremiah 17:9; Romans 3:9-18, 23; 5:10-12).
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine Person, possessing all the attributes of personality and deity. He is coequal and co-substantial with the Father and the Son (Matthew 28:19; Acts 5:3-4; 28:25-26; 1 Corinthians 12:4-6; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Jeremiah 31:31-34 with Hebrews 10:15-17). He regenerates, indwells, baptizes, and seals all believers in Christ and empowers those who submit to God. (John 14:16,17,26; 15:26,27; John 16:9-14; Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 3:16; 6:19; Galatians 5:22-26).
We believe that salvation is a gift of God by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and His redemptive work on the cross (John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-10; 1 Peter 1:18-19). All who have received salvation through faith in Christ are kept secure by God’s power forever. John 1:12, 12; 5:24; 10:27-29; Ephesians 1:7, 2:8; 1 Peter 2:24; 1 John 5:13.
We believe that Church, the bride of Christ, is a living organism made up of all born again believers in this present age and began with the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost and will be completed at rapture. (1 Corinthians 12:12-13; 2 Corinthians 11:2; Ephesians 1:22; 4:15;5:23-32; Revelation 19:7-8; Col. 1:18).We believe that local church is a visible and miniature form of a universal church in which Christ is the head. Each local church is autonomous, free from any external authority or control. However, we do not neglect the importance of inter-dependency of true churches for propagation of gospel and fellowship.
The ordinances of the church
We believe that there are two Christian ordinances, Baptism and the Lord’s Supper (Acts 2:38-42). Baptism by immersion signifies that the believer, having died with Christ, is buried with Him in baptism and also raised with Christ to walk in newness of life (Romans 6:1-11). The Lord’s Supper is a memorial feast, instituted by the Lord Himself exclusively for His own, the church (1 Corinthians 10:16; 11:23-32).This memorial feast is a regular part of our remembrance meeting which include thanksgiving, adoration and worship.
We believe that Satan is a fallen angel who rebelled against God. He is the open and declared enemy of God and man (Isaiah 14:13-14; Matthew 4:1-11; Revelation 12:9-10); He is the prince of this world, but has been defeated through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ (Romans 16:20); and he will be eternally punished in the lake of fire (Isaiah 14:12-17; Ezekiel 28:11-19; Matthew 25:41; Revelation 20:10).
We believe that Jesus will return for His own(the church) at the Rapture before the Tribulation, and will return with His own at the close of the Tribulation, and will establish His Millennial Kingdom on this earth from Jerusalem, and will reign here on Earth for 1,000 years. At the close of the thousand year reign the unsaved dead will be raised and committed to eternal punishment and the saved will enter the eternal state of glory with God. (Mark 9:43-48; I Corinthians 15:24-28; II Thessalonians 1:9; II Peter 3:10-13; Revelation 20:11-15, 21:1-4, 22:5, 11).
