Statement of Faith

The Bible
We believe the Bible, comprised of the Old Testament (39 books) and New Testament (27 books), to be the inspired, infallible, inerrant and authoritative Word of God (Matthew 5:18; 2 Timothy 3:16-17). The two Testaments consists of 39 books and 27 books respectively, making 66 books in total. In faith we hold the Bible to be inerrant in the original writings, God-breathed, and the complete and final authority for faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16-17). God uses the instrumentality of holy men to precisely wrote what He wanted written, without error or omission (2 Peter 1:21).

We believe in one true God, who is the Creator of all things, both visible and invisible (Deuteronomy 6:4; Colossians 1:16), who has revealed Himself in three distinct Persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14), yet who is One in being, essence, and glory (John 10:30). He is eternally infinite and Sovereign (Psalm 90:2, 1 Timothy 1:17, Psalm 93:1).

Jesus Christ
We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God. We believe in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. He is the express image of the Father, who, without ceasing to be God, became man in order that He might demonstrate who God is and provide the means of salvation for humanity (Matthew 1:21; John 1:18; Colossians 1:15).

The Holy Spirit
We believe in the deity and personality of the precious Holy Spirit (Acts 5:3-4). That He is solely the Agent by which sinners are regenerated (Titus 3:5) and that He indwells true believers (Romans 8:9), enables them to live a godly life in this world and sustains them in faith and in holiness to the very end of their lives. He is the agent by whom Christ baptizes all believers into His body (1 Corinthians 12:12-14). He is the Divine Teacher who illuminates believers’ hearts and minds as they study and meditate on the Word of God (1 Corinthians 2:9-12).

Resurrection and Judgement
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved will be raised to everlasting life with the Lord Jesus Christ, and they that are lost will be raised to everlasting separation from Him and from God.

The Church
We believe in the spiritual unity of true/sanctified believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that the Church, the Body of Christ, is a spiritual organism made up of all true believers of this present age (1 Corinthians 12:12-14; 2 Corinthians 11:2; Ephesians 1:22-23, 5:25-27). We believe in the Great Commission as the primary mission of the Church. It is the obligation of all believers to witness, by word and life, to the truths of God’s Word revealed in Christ Jesus. The gospel of the grace of God is to be preached to all the world (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 5:19-20).
