What We Believe
- We believe in one God who eternally exist in three persons, The FATHER, the SON and the HOLY SPIRIT
- We Believe the Bible to be fully and uniquely inspired by the Holy Spirit and that it is the only authoritative, inerrant and infallible written Word of God.
- We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, inerrant teaching, substitutionary death and atonement, bodily resurrection and ascension to the right hand of God.
- We believe that man, created in the image of God, was tempted by Satan and fell, and because of his consequent depraved state, requires regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation.
- We believe that salvation is received by faith alone, apart from works, and consists of repentance toward God for forgiveness of sins, the imputation of Christ's righteousness, and the gift of eternal life.
- We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is being sanctified and empowered to live a godly life, demonstrating the fruit of the Spirit and practicing the gifts of the Spirit.
- We believe that the true church, the body of Christ, is composed of all those who have been regenerated and is the appointed instrument for the fulfillment of Christ's Great Commission.
- We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to the Church: water baptism by immersion and the Lord's Supper.
- We believe in the imminent, visible, personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory.
- To glorify God, fulfilling the Great Commission by planting churches led by Nationals, Mobilizing the church Body of Christ to make an impact for God.
- We believe it is the obligation of the saved to witness by life and word to these truths and to proclaim the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to all the world.
