We Believe In

    There is one God, infinite and existent in three Personalities , Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the Creator and Sustainer of the Earth and Heaven , who reveals Himself in Jesus Christ in the perfect holiness and love.

    The Holy Bible containing the sixty-six books of the Old Testament and the New Testament is the fully and uniquely revealed and inspired Word of God, infallible, inherent, and entirely trustworthy and the ultimate authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

    The full Deity and humanity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His representative and substitutionary death, resurrection and ascension.

    The dignity of man created in the image of God, his fall, his universal sinfulness and consequent subjection to God's wrath and condemnation, his need of redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin, his/her salvation by the grace of God, through repentance and faith alone in Lord Jesus Christ.

    The illuminating, regenerating, indwelling and sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit enabling believers to live a holy life and equipping them to serve responsibly in society.

    The spiritual unity of all believers in Christ, composing the Church, the body of Christ, visibly expressed in worship, fellowship and service to humanity.

    The mission of the Church consists primarily of the evangelization of the world, and especially the unreached and unengaged peoples through the proclamation of the Gospel by word and deed so that individuals and families find new life in Christ and churches are planted.

    The personal, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ and the resurrection of all, they that are saved unto eternal life, and they that are lost unto eternal death.

    The Successful Christian life is to give God what God's, and give to the Nations (Government) what Nation's.
