Our Statements of Christian Faith,

we believe that:  

  • The Holy Trinity eternally exists in three equally divine Persons: the Father god; Jesus Christ, the Son; and the Holy Spirit. They love each other, in fellowship with one another, and they sit in glorious thrones in Heavens. 

         "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the

           surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters." (Genesis 1:1-2)

  • The Bible is a Holy Scripture, written by God's people through divine inspirations and its has supreme authority in matters of faith and conduct.

       "The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever." (Isaiah 40:8) 

          "It is easier for heaven and earth to disappear than for the least stroke of a pen to drop out of the law." (Luke 16:17)

  • God created human beings in His image, to love Him and to love one another. God considers human beings as His partners to take care, manage, and govern His creations through being in relationship with Him and live in holiness to observe closely Christ' teaching, put them into practice, so that human-beings can acquire divine characteristics.

     "So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them." 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                              (Genesis 1:27)

        "God blessed them and said to them, 'Be fruitful and increase in numbers; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in                the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground."  

                                                                                                                                                                                                                               (Genesis 1:28)

       "Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first             and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself'" 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                    (Matthew 22:37-39)

  • The universal sinfulness and guilt of humans since the fall, rendering all people subject to God’s anger and condemnation.(Genesis 3:1 - 24)

  • The conception of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, by the Holy Spirit and his birth of the Virgin Mary.

          (Matthew 1:1-25). 

  • The sacrificial death of Jesus Christ, which redeems those who put their faith and trust entirely in Him from the guilt, penalty and power of sin. The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. (Matthew 27:1-66)

  • The Holy Spirit dwells in believers, renewing and sanctifying them. The Holy Spirit convicts the individual of sin, righteousness, and judgement, pointing to the work of Jesus, and brings about repentance and faith.

 

      "Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, You must be born

          again. The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So

          it is with everyone born of the Spirit" (John 3:6-8).

  • The glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ when He will exercise His role as final judge and his kingdom will be everlasting.

           "Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with Me, and I will give to each person, according to what they have done. I am

            the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Blessed are those who wash their robes, that            they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city." (Revelation 22:12-14).
