Statement of Faith

# We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons-Father, Son and Holy Spirit – and that He created everything out of nothing in six literal days for His own pleasure and purpose.

# We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally inspired Word of God, inerrant and infallible in the original manuscripts, and the absolute and final authority in all matters of faith and life, nothing can be added to it or subtract from it. It is the ultimate and complete revelation of God to all men everywhere. There can be no new revelation because the Old is the absolute and the last Word of God to man.

# We believe that man was created in the image of God, and when he sinned the race incurred both physical and spiritual death; thus man became alienated from God and incapable of remedying his sinful condition by his own means. Man is not a sinner when he sin, he is a sinner therefore he sins, he has a sinful nature already inherited by birth. He never have stopped sinning and have done nothing else but sin, this is original sin.

# We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ was begotten of the Father through the Holy Spirit, was born of the Virgin Mary, and is true man without ceasing to be God.

# We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ lived a sinless and perfect life that fully pleased His Father; that He died for sin on the cross, bearing the judgment demanded by God’s Holy Justice against sin, thus making it possible for God to remain Just and at the same time to justify freely those who believe in Jesus.

# We believe that man cannot serve God in his own way and terms but by the way God have ascribed and established through His Word and the example of Scripture and that whatsoever is not revealed is not left for man to fill in but to search out through the revealed things and principles of God’s Word. We believe in regulative principles that guide everything in life and godliness.

# We believe that we were made part of an already established body in which Christ is living and have revealed Himself and that their inheritance is our inheritance and their order is our destiny, it is no other than Christ’s life on earth and as made known in the life of the apostles and those that followed.

# We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ rose bodily from the dead, never to die again, and is ascended to the right hand of the Father, where He intercedes as High Priest and Advocate on behalf of all who believe in Him.

# We believe that those who, by faith alone and through no merit of their own, in repentance and reception of the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are miraculously born again of the Holy Spirit and become, as children of God, partakers of His divine nature and of eternal life. It is not a mere choice of man that saves or some kind of sinners prayer but a supernatural work of God whereby man not merely by his own choice or human “decisionism” are being regenerated. It is not merely man that choose and are saved, it is a work God must do in those that have believed and received.

# We believe that the Holy Spirit baptizes all true believers into the one true Church, His Body; that He indwells them eternally, bestows spiritual gifts upon them, and empowers them for service and holy living.

# We believe that God through His Word promises those who believe, all things that pertain to life and godliness, including not only salvation from the penalty of sin but also with the power of sin through instruction in righteousness for present and continual sanctification and victorious living to the glory of God.

# We believe that two ordinances, neither of which is essential to salvation, are to be observed in obedience to our Lord by all believers until Christ’s return: baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

# We believe that at death the souls of the redeemed pass immediately into Christ’s presence, to remain there until the resurrection of the body at Christ’s return for the Church. We also believe that at death the souls of the lost go to Hell, where they remain until they are brought before Christ at the Great White Throne final judgment to be judged according to their works and cast into the Lake of Fire, there to remain eternally.

# We believe in the bodily resurrection of the redeemed at the pre-millennial return of Christ for His Church, when the souls and spirits of those who have died will be reunited with their bodies, now immortal, and that believers who are alive at that time, their bodies likewise transformed into immortality, will be caught up together with them to meet Christ in the air, ever to be with Him.

# We believe in the personal, bodily return of our Lord Jesus Christ to rescue Israel at Armageddon and to establish His millennial kingdom, reigning over this earth from His father David’s throne in Jerusalem, and that His redeemed will reign with Him in resurrected bodies for 1,000 years. He has to come to set up His kingdom; we wait for His return before we will reign with Christ on earth.
