Our Beliefs

Our Beliefs

Minimize

A. The Bible.  We believe that the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the complete revelation of God.  Having absolute authority, it is the basis of all faith.

B. God.  We believe in the Trinity.  The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are equal in glory and honor.  We believe in the almighty, everlasting, and one and only true God.  He is the Lord and Creator of all things in the universe.  Having prepared salvation for mankind, He is the Father of all and the Heavenly Father of the believers.

C. Jesus Christ.  We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son.  He is the only begotten Son of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is the Word incarnate to be the Son of Man.  He lived without sin, and died on the cross, sacrificing His body and shedding His blood to redeem the sin of the world.  After death, He was buried and then rose on the third day.  He accomplished salvation and is the one and only Savior of mankind.  Afterwards, He ascended to Heaven where He is now sitting on the right hand of God and interceding for the believers.  In the last days, He shall come again and judge the living and the dead.  Then He shall reign forever and ever.

D. The Holy Spirit. We believe in the Holy Spirit, God’s Spirit.  He comes to reveal, convict, guide, comfort, teach and give the life of Christ to believers.  He dwells in the hearts of the believers, whose bodies are His temple.  He is the evidence of salvation to the believers, from whom He never departs.

E. Salvation.  We believe that salvation is God’s free gift to living persons.  Whoever rejects it shall be condemned and whoever repents and believes in the Lord shall be saved.  The Lord shall keep those who have been saved by grace to the end; they shall never perish.

F. The Church.  We believe that the local, autonomous church, formed voluntarily by believers who have been saved by grace, is the kind of church in accordance with the New Testament.  All believers should practice the life of faith and be members of a local church, in order to carry out the duties of worship.
