Statement of Faith
Statement of Beliefs
The following are those things that we believe in to preach and teach from the Holy Scriptures. The lists of the Scriptures that are evident in this page may by no means represent the totality of our belief, but we feel that it will be helpful to those who wish to make a study of the Holy Scripture to have a head start from the listed Scriptures. Furthermore, transparency of this website is boldly expressed to be a nondenominational Christian website.
We believe in the Holy Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct (II Tim. 3:15-17; Thes 2:13; II Peter 1:21).
We believe in the one true God who has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent “I AM” the creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of mankind. He has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Deut. 6:4: Isaiah 43:10,11; Matt. 28:19; Luke 3:22).
We believe in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ and that He is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare:
(a) His virgin birth (Matt. 1:23; Luke 1:31.35)
(b) His sinless life (Heb. 7:26; I Peter 2:22)
(c) His miracles (Acts 2:22; 10:35)
(d) His substitutionary work on the cross (I Cor. 15.3; II Con. 15:4)
(e) His bodily resurrection from the dead (Matt. 28:6: Luke 24:39; I Cor. 15:4)
(4) His exaltation to the right band of God (Acts 1:9.11; 2:33; Phil. 2:9 11 Heb. 1: 3).
We believe the man was created good and upright; for God said, “Let us make man in our images, after our likeness.” However, a man by voluntary transgression tell and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God (Gen. 1:26,27; 2:17, 3:6; Rom. 5:12-19).
We believe that man’s only hope of redemption is only through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God. Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God according to the hope of eternal life (Luke 24:47; John 3:3; Born. 10:13 15: Eph.2:8; Titus 2:11; 3:6-7).
We further believe that the inward evidence of salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit (Rom. 8:161. The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness (Eph. 4:24; Titus 2:12).
We believe that the ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded in the Scriptures. All who repent and believers in Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. Thus they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life Matt. 28:19; Mark 16:16: Acts 10:47,48; Rom. 6:4).
We believe in Holy Communion. The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements – bread and the fruit of the vine -— is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (II Peter 1:4); a memorial of His suffering and death (I Cor. 11:26); and a prophecy of His second coming (I Cor. 11:26) and is enjoined on all believers “till He comes”.
We believe in the Baptism in the Holy Ghost. All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Ghost, and live according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian church.
With it comes the enduement of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4.8; I Cor. 12:1-31). This experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth (Acts 8:12 17 10:44-46: 11:14-16; 15:7-9.
With the baptism in the Holy Ghost come such experience as an overflowing fullness of the Holy Spirit (John 7:37-39; Acts 4:8). a deepened reverence for God (Acts 2:43; Heb. 12:28), an intensified consecration to God and dedication to His work (Acts 2:42), arid a more active love for Christ. for His word, arid for the lost (Mark 16:20).
We believe in prayer, and whatever the immediate purpose, prayer should be that God’s Will be done on earth (Matthew 6:10; I John 5:14-15). We must forgive to be forgiven (Matthew 6:14). The Holy Spirit will help us to pray (Romans 8:26-27). If we ask in faith and in the Name of Jesus Christ, He will hear (John 15:16; James 1:6-7).
We believe that a Sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil and of dedication unto God (Rom. 12:12; I Thes. 5:23; Heb. 13:12). The Scripture teaches a life of “holiness without which no man shall see the Lord’ (Heb. 12:14).
By the power of the Holy Ghost we are able to obey the command: “Be ye holy, for I art holy” (I Peter 1:15-16). Further, Sanctification is realized in the believer by recognizing his identification with Christ in His death and resurrection and by faith reckoning daily upon he fact of that union, and by and by offering every faculty continually to the dominion of the Holy Spirit (Rom. 6:1 11,13; 8:1,2,13; Gal. 2:20; Phil 2:12,13; 1 Peter 1:5).
We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the Church of the First-born, which are written in heaven (Eph. 1:22-23; 2:22; Heb, 12:23).
Further, since God’s purpose concerning man is to seek and to save that which is lost, to be worshipped by man, and to build a body of believers in the image of His Son, thus the Church is:
(a) To be an agency of God for evangelizing the world (Acts 1:8: Matt. 28:19-20: Mark 16:15:16
(b) To be a corporate body in which may worship God (1 Cor. 12:13)
(c) To be a channel of God’s purpose to build a body of saints being perfected in the image of His Son (Eph. 4:11-16; I Cor, 12:28:1 Cor. 14:12)
We believe in a divinely called and scripturally ordained ministry which has been provided by our Lord for the threefold purpose of leading the Church in (1) evangelization of the world (Mark 16:1 5-20). (2) worship of God (John 4:23,24), arid (3) building a body of saints being perfected in the image of His Son (Eph 4:11-16).
We believe that divine healing is an integral part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the Atonement, and is the privilege of all believers (Isaiah 53:45; Matt. 8:16,17: James 5.14-16)
We believe in the resurrection of those have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord is the imminent and blessed hope of the Church (I Thes. 4:16,17; Rom. 8:23; Titus 2:13; I Cor. 15:51-52).
We believe in the second coming of Christ which includes that rapture of the saints, which is our blessed hope, followed by the visible return of Christ with His saints to reign on the earth for one thousand years (Zech. 14:5; Matt. 24:27,30; Rev. 1:7; 19:11-14; 20:1 -6). This millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel (Ezek. 37:21,22; Zeph. 3:19,20; Rom. 11:26,27 and the establishment of universal peace (Isaiah 11: 6-9; Psalm 72:3-8; Micah 4:3-4).
We believe that there will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life, together with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet will be cast to everlasting punishment in hell, which is the second death (Matt. 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Rev. 19:20; 20:11-15; 21:8).
We believe in the New Heavens and the New Earth. “We, according to His promise. look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness”’(11 Peter 3:13; Rev. 21:22).
