What We Believe

We believe that "all Scripture is given by inspiration of God," by which we understand the whole Bible is inspired in the sense that holy men of God "were moved by the Holy Spirit" to write the very words of Scripture. We believe the bible is inerrant word of God. We believe that the bible is authoritative word of God an the standard bearer for how mankind should conduct their life.

We believe the God exist eternally in three person the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost

We believe that God is the absolute and sole creator of the universe and this creation was the result of His divine command

We believe that God through is unmerited love and sovereign choose send His Son into the world to save mankind

We believe that Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man. He was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life; He was crucified, died as a penalty for our sins, and was raised from the dead bodily on the third day. Later, He ascended to the Father's right hand where He is the head of the church and intercedes for believers. We believe Jesus Christ is coming again personally, bodily, and visibly to this earth to set up His millennial kingdom.

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ made a perfect atonement for sin, through his sacrificial death and shed blood, and has redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us. Men are saved and justified on the simple and single ground of His shed blood.

We believe that salvation through Jesus Christ, with its forgiveness of sins, its impartation of a new nature, and its hope of eternal life—is entirely apart from good works, baptism, church membership or man's effort and is of pure grace.

We believe that a true believer is eternally secure, that he cannot lose his salvation, but that sin may interrupt the joy of his fellowship with God and bring the loving discipline of his heavenly Father.

We believe that it is the goal of every Christian to become a disciple of Christ by growing toward spiritual maturity through the knowledge of and obedience to the Word of God and submission to the Holy Spirit, who indwells, baptizes and seals all believers at the moment of salvation.

We believe that every true Christian is to be a dynamic part of a local church since this is God's primary context for spiritual development and community impact.

We believe that water baptism by immersion constitutes the public declaration of one's spiritual initiation into the body of Christ; that it symbolizes the believer's cleansing from sin through identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection, which identification is accomplished by the spiritual baptism of the Holy Spirit, who incorporates the believer into the true spiritual Church; and that its spiritual meaning requires prior regeneration and conversion of the one being baptized

We believe that the Lord's Supper, consisting of unleavened bread and drink from the fruit of the vine, symbolizes Christ's broken body and shed blood sacrificed on our behalf to deliver us from sin and death
