We believe in one God who is absolutely holy and who exists in three forms: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and whose highest plan is the establishment of His Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.
We believe that the Bible, the 66 books of the Old Testament and the New Testament, are divinely inspired and a complete revelation of God to mankind. The Holy Scriptures have the highest and final authority in questions of faith, life, and the salvation of mankind.
We believe that Jesus Christ was pure God and pure man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ, as the eternal Word, came to earth in the flesh and lived a holy and sinless life. He died on the cross as a righteous man and a vicarious sacrifice for sinners.
He redeemed mankind from the bondage of sin, guilt, and condemnation. He was victorious over death and Satan. He rose from the dead, was taken up in glory and is seated with the Father, interceding for us as the only Mediator between God and man.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is engaged in the work of salvation on earth. He convicts mankind of sin, revealing guilt to people, as well as pointing them to the righteousness of God and the coming judgment.
We believe that God created man without sin in His own image, but man voluntarily sinned, departed from God and now stands under judgment. As a result, all people are born with a sinful nature and are spiritually dead and cut off from life and are in need of salvation.
We believe that people have only one way to salvation and that is through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Anyone who repents of their sins and receives Christ by faith, confessing Him as their personal Savior and Lord, will be saved.
We believe that God's people are the Church and they are those who have accepted Jesus and are redeemed. The Church consist of people from all times and nations. Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church and all its members are united by the Holy Spirit into one complete body. The Church exists to spread the Kingdom of God through worship, through the process of sanctification and through preaching the gospel of salvation throughout the whole world.
Resurrection of the Dead
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead. The resurrection is for those who have accepted Jesus Christ by faith and who will be a resurrected to eternal glory, and being in the presence of God in joy and bliss. The fate of non-believers is a resurrection of condemnation, in which they remain completely, separated from God and will remain in an eternal place of torment.
The Second Coming of Jesus Christ
We believe in the second coming of Jesus Christ, who will appear in person to judge mankind and establish His eternal kingdom of righteousness and peace.
