What we believe

 

We Believe and Teach

  1. God

We believe in the only Eternal God of the Bible, the Creator of Heaven and Earth who has revealed Himself to us as Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.

  1. God, the Father

We believe in God, the Father as the origin of all Fatherhood who has turned to mankind to compassionately care for man. He wants everyone to come to the knowledge of the Truth. Therefore, He gave His Son in the image of His exceeding love for the lost world to be saved.

  1. Jesus Christ

We believe in Jesus Christ, the flesh-incarnated Word of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. In Him, God has revealed Himself as the final salvation to mankind. Therefore, the Bible, the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments inspired by the Spirit of God bears witness as an unfailing guiding principle to our way of living, thinking and acting. As God’s incarnated Word, Jesus Christ brought salvation to all through His final vicarious death on the Cross in order to become our Intercessor after His Resurrection and Ascension to Heaven and sitting at the right hand of the Father.

We believe that Jesus Christ, our Lord, will return in power and in glory to take His saved ones into eternal Glory and the lost ones to the Eternal Judgement.

In Jesus, God invites everyone who is a sinner and, therefore, is lost to receive salvation through faith by the repentance of sin.

  1. The Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit who works new life in us by the New Birth due to the salvation in Jesus Christ and He brings it to completion by His resurrection from the Dead. The Supreme Lord wants to empower every believer to serve Him through the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. He brings about the fruit of the Spirit in the new born through His presence in us. So the Holy Spirit imparts in His godly Sovereignty His different gifts, ministries and operations for mutual edification and to minister to the world.

  1. The Church

We believe that the Church is the Fellowship of people who is called by God to come out from sin and to announce His salvation to the world.

Besides being the Body of Christ, the Church is also the place of service where all saints are called and empowered.

Believers are added to the local Fellowships through water Baptism (immersion) and by personal confession of sin to obtain forgiveness and faith in Jesus Christ. The Lord’s Supper is the Church announcing the Death of the Lord and the corporate partaking of Jesus Christ as the Head of the Church and His Body in the expectancy of His return.

The partaking of Jesus as Lord includes living in sanctification and in expectancy of faith for healing and total restoration of mankind.
