OUR Beliefs


About God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.

 

About The Father

He is all powerful, all knowing, all loving, and all wise. He reigns with providential care over the universe and the flow of human history goes according to His purpose and plan.

 

About Jesus

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father, Jesus has eternally existed and became man at His incarnation. He lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He bodily arose from the dead after 3 days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven's glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

 

About The Holy Spirit

He is the third person of the Trinity. He guides men into all truth, exalts Christ, convicts of sin, righteousness and judgment, cultivates Christian character, comforts believers, bestows spiritual gifts by which believers serve God and seals the believer unto the day of final redemption. His presence in the lives of believers is the assurance of God to bring us into the realm of the stature of Christ

 

 

 

 

About The Scriptures

The Bible is God's Word to us.  It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.  It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.  Because it is inspired by God, it has salvation for its end and is truth without any mixture of error.
 

 

About Salvation

Salvation is God's free gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin's penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one received Jesus Christ into his life by faith but we must accept it.  We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works.  Only by trusting Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin's penalty.  When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn  to Jesus in faith we are saved.  Eternal life begins the moment one received Jesus Christ into his life by faith.

 

 

About Eternal Security

Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity.  If you have been genuinely saved, you cannot "lose" your salvation.  Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian.  It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security.

 

About Baptism by Immersion

We believe that scriptural baptism must be: (1) by being completely immersed under the water and (2) after salvation.  Jesus was immersed and all baptisms in the New Testament were by immersion.  These two facts sets the standard for baptism today.  Baptism has no saving power but is the first act of obedience symbolizing (1) the believer's faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, (2) the believer's death to sin and resurrection to walk anew in Christ (3) the Christian's belief that he will die, be buried, and that Jesus will resurrect him from the dead.
