What We Believe

About God:

God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are one, co-equal in essence. (John 17:3, Rev. 4:11)

About Jesus Christ:

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus was born of a virgin. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice in payment for the sins of all humanity by dying on a cross. He bodily rose from the dead after three days as the unquestionable sign of God’s acceptance of the sacrifice paid. He ascended to Heaven and will return someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. (Matt. 1:18, John 1:1, 1 Cor. 15:3-4, Heb. 1:3, 1:8, 9:24)

About the Holy Spirit:

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live daily under His control. (John 14:26, 16:7-11; 17)

About the Bible:

The Bible is God’s word to us. It was written under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit by human authors. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Since it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error. (2 Tim. 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21)

About Human Beings:

People are made in the image of God. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by a predisposition of disobedience toward God. This predisposition is called “sin.” This is the major problem that exists between God and humans. (Gen. 1:26, Romans 5:12, Titus 3:3-7)

About Salvation:

Salvation is God’s free gift to us. But, we must accept it. It is not earned or deserved. It is received by faith. Salvation comes only by trusting in Jesus Christ and nothing else. When we turn from our self-ruled life and receive Christ by FAITH, we are saved. Everlasting life begins the moment we receive Jesus Christ into our lives by faith. (Acts 4:12, Romans 6:5)
