Statement of Faith

The Trinity
We believe in one True and Living God (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 45:5-7; 1 Corinthians 8:4) eternally existing in three Persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; Corinthians 13:14)

The Person and Work of Jesus Christ
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coequal, consubstantial, and coeternal with the Father and the Holy Spirit, and was virgin born through the supernatural intervention of God. He is God incarnate, God manifest in the flesh—the God-Man possessing all essential qualities of divinity and humanity in indivisible oneness. At incarnation, He surrendered only the prerogatives of deity but nothing of the divine essence, either in degree or kind. He lived a sinless life. In His death He made full vicarious atonement for sins. He rose again from the dead on the third day and ascended bodily into heaven. He is coming again to receive His Church (John 1:1-14; 10:30; 14:9; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 2 Corinthians 5:2;1 Philippians 2:5-8 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17; 2 Corinthians 5:21).

The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine Person possessing all the attributes of the deity. He is coequal, consubstantial and coeternal with the Father, and with the Son, and is of the same nature. He convicts the unbelieving world of sin and is the sovereign agent of regeneration. He baptizes all believers into the Body of Christ and sanctifies, seals, indwells, infills, guides, teaches and sovereignly bestows them with Spiritual gifts for the glory of Christ (John 14:16-17; 15:26; 16:4-9,13-14; Acts 1:8; Romans 8:9; ;1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 2 Corinthians 3:18 Ephesians 5:18; 1 John 2:20, 27).

The Holy Scriptures
We believe that the Bible is the inerrant, inspired Word of God, His revelation to man, the supreme and final authority in all matters of doctrine, faith, and life (II Timothy 3:16-17; John 17:17).

Man and the Fall
We believe that man was originally created good by God, having a perfect fellowship with Him, but by his free will and voluntary transgressions, he fell from this state, in consequence of which all men are now sinners and therefore under just condemnation to eternal ruin without defense or excuse (Romans 3:22-23).

We believe that salvation of sinners is wholly by grace through the mediatorial work of Jesus Christ. It is wholly apart from works and is upon the sole condition of repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; that in order to be saved, the sinner must be born again, being regenerated by the power of the Holy Spirit and becoming recipient of a new nature; that having exercised personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the believer is completely justified and in possession of a salvation. All the justified experience an ongoing sanctification into Christlikeness by the Holy Spirit, awaiting a day of glorification when Jesus Christ returns.  We believe that all the redeemed, once saved, are always saved,  kept by God’s power and secure in Christ forever (John 3:3-7; 5:24; 6:37-40; 10:27-30; Romans 5:21; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5).

(1)     We believe in the Great Commission of spreading the Gospel of Jesus in words, deeds and lifestyle, and in discipling people to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. Biblical evangelism refers to the spreading of the Good News about Jesus Christ; that He died on the cross to pay for humanity’s sins and was raised from the dead after three days according to the Scriptures; in so doing He made a public spectacle of the powers of darkness. As the reigning Lord, He now offers the forgiveness of sins, eternal life, reconciliation with God and the liberating gifts of the Spirit to all who repent (turn away from sin) and believe in Him (put his/her trust and faith in Jesus Christ).

(2)     We believe that there is only one Gospel Message spread through various Scripture-grounded strategies, excluding deceptive and manipulative means, as well as watered-down, man-centered and prosperity gospel messages. In issuing the Gospel invitation, we have to be responsible in showing and counting the cost of following Christ—denying oneself  and taking up one’s cross daily (Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 8:34; Mark 10:43-45; Luke 14:25-33;  John 20:21; Acts 2: 32-39; 40,47; 1 Corinthians 1:23; 15:3,4; 2 Corinthians 4:5; 5:11,20;).
