STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe ...
In one God, eternally existing in three Persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Christ is the Head of His body, the Church, and that in all things He has preeminence.
All Scripture is fully inspired by God, and we accept it as the full and final authority for faith and life.
The Lord Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true Man.
The Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, a substitutionary sacrifice, according to the Scriptures, and that all who believe and trust in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood.
In the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, His ascension into heaven, and His present life as our High Priest and Advocate.
In the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
In the personality of the Holy Spirit, His regenerating work, and abiding presence in the true believer.
The Holy Spirit indwells all true believers and that He has been sent to be the Comforter and Empowerer of the Christian Church, to produce the fruit of the Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to the Scriptures.
All who repent of their sin and receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.
The one true Church is the whole company of those who have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior, have been redeemed by Him and regenerated by the Holy Spirit. Each local church on earth should take its character from this concept. Therefore, the new birth and personal confession of faith in Jesus Christ are essentials of church membership; the priesthood of all believers.
The ascended Christ has given various ministries or ministers to the Church in order to bring all believers to the place of Christian maturity in the understanding of truth, and the performance and function of the ministry (Ephesians 4:11; Romans 12:4-8 and 1 Corinthians 12:10).
God never removed the gifts of the Holy Spirit from the Church, and the Scriptural commands to “seek earnestly the best gifts” and to “do not forbid to speak in tongues” are still applicable today (1 Corinthians 12:13-14).
The healing of the sick in the name of Jesus Christ is still active in the Church (Mark 16:16-18; Matthew 8:16-17; 1 Corinthians 12:9; James 5:14-15).
The miracles as recorded in the Bible were real miracles, and are possible in the present day (John 14:12 and 1 Corinthians 12:10).
All believers are called to fulfill the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20).
