THE HOLY SCRIPTURES

We believe in the Holy Scriptures as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy,  and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (John 5:39; II Timothy 3:16-17; I Peter 1:23- 25; Hebrews 4:12) 

THE GODHEAD

We believe in one God, Creator and Sustainer of all things, eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son,  and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:18-19;Mark 12:29; John 1:14; Acts 5:3-5; II Corinthians 13:14; Hebrews 1:1-3; Revelation 1:4-6) 

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST

We believe in the deity and humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His substitutionary and atoning death on the  Cross, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, His work as a mediator for us,  and His return in power and glory. (John 1:1-2; I Timothy 3:16; Acts 7:37-38; Philippians 2:9-19; Hebrews  7:25)

UNIVERSAL SINFULNESS

We believe in all humankind's universal sinfulness and guilt since the Fall, rendering humanity subject to  God's wrath and condemnation. (Romans 3:23-25, 5:12- 21; I Corinthians 15:1-4; II Corinthians 4:3-4)

INDWELLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live  a godly life. (John 3:6; 14:16-17; Romans 8:9, 12:10-11; I Corinthians 6:19, 12:8-11; Galatians 5:22-23;  Ephesians 2:22, 4:11-13)

REDEMPTION AND REGENERATION THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS

We believe in redemption through the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit as  essential for the salvation of lost and sinful humankind. (Ephesians 1:7, Ephesians 2:13; Romans 8:9-10, I  Corinthians 6:19-20)

JUSTIFICATION OF SINNERS

We believe in justification of the sinners solely by the grace of God through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 5:1; Ephesians 2:8-9)

RESURRECTION OF THE SAVED AND THE LOST

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved will rise to life, and those  lost will rise to be condemned. (Luke 16:19-26; 23:42; II Corinthians 5:8; Philippians 1:23; II Thessalonians  1:7-9; Jude 6-7; Revelation 20:11-15; 1 Corinthians 15:51-53; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14; John 11:25).

THE CHURCH - SPIRITUAL UNITY OF BELIEVERS

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers, who form the universal church, the Body of which Christ is  the head. (Matthew 16:16-18; John 17:21; Romans 12:5; Ephesians 1:20-23,4:3-10; Colossians3:14-15)
