This is what we believe!
There is only one true GOD who exists as GOD the FATHER, GOD the SON and GOD the HOLY SPIRIT. The three are co-equal and one GOD. HE is eternal, good, all wise, all-powerful and everywhere. HE is the creator of everything that exists. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Revelation 19:6; Psalm 147:5; Psalm 139:7-12; Genesis 1:1)
The Bible is the inerrant, infallible and inspired WORD of GOD. It is the final authority for faith and practice for all believers. (2Tim 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20,21; 1 Peter 1:24,25)
Man was created in the image of GOD to commune with HIM and to carry out HIS desires. He was created good and perfect. Man after being tempted by the devil chose to disobey the LORD and fell into a state of disconnection through sin. Death entered into the world through this sin and man was doomed to his sinful nature. This state of being is the reason why the world has been in the condition disrepair and darkness. GOD has provided man with his only hope of salvation and redemption which is in JESUS CHRIST. (Gen. 1:26-31, 3:1-24; Acts 4:12; Rom. 5:12-21)
JESUS is GOD and is the only way that we can be saved and restored into a right relationship with GOD the FATHER. HE was born of a virgin and HIS Father is GOD. HE was born without sin and, during HIS entire life, committed no sin. HE offered HIMSELF as the Holy sacrifice for the sins of the world by dying on the cross. HE arose from the dead after three days and ascended into Heaven where HE is at the right hand of the FATHER. (I Tim 3:16, John 10:30, Isa 9:6, Luke 2:11, Rev 1:8).
Salvation is by the grace of God, through faith in Jesus CHRIST. By making JESUS Lord of our lives we receive the gift of the HOLY SPIRIT and eternal life. This is the start of our relationship with GOD. (Romans 10:9,10, 1 John 1:9, Ephesians 2:8,9).
Following salvation through JESUS CHRIST commanded each believer to be baptized. It is an important This was the last command He left His Apostles. “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them, in the name of the Father, and the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.” Baptism is a public declaration of your intention to live in the newness of the life GOD has provided for you through JESUS’ death, burial and resurrection. (Matt. 28:19; Mark 16:16)
HOLY SPIRIT was given to empower the believer to live the way JESUS did. JESUS said that we would receive another Comforter that would provide the leadership we needed by guiding us into all truths and making available the grace and insights JESUS had to live in full obedience to the FATHER and make it known to us. (Acts 1:4,5; Acts 2:1-18; John 7:38,39; John 14:26; John 16:13-15 )
GOD has been in the process of restoring the five-fold ministry to the church in power and authority to equip the Believers to do the work of the ministry. All Believers have a divinely appointed member-ministry within the Body of CHRIST to carry out and need to be equipped to fully carry out their calling. (Ephesians 4:11,12; 1Peter 4:10-11)
The Second Coming
JESUS' return is imminent. HE will return for the Church and to judge the world. (John 14:1-4; 2Thessalonians 2:8)
Heaven and Hell
We believe that there is a heaven and a hell. Heaven is a place of eternal rest for the righteous (those who have accepted JESUS CHRIST their personal LORD and Savior) and hell is a place of eternal damnation for the unrighteous (those who do not accept JESUS CHRIST as their personal Lord and Savior) (Matt. 28:19, Mark 16:16).
The LORD has made the Church responsible to communicate the Gospel with the world. HE told the Apostles to go into all the world and preach the Gospel. Those who believed would be saved and those who didn't believe would be condemned. It is our responsibility to share the Gospel with the world and make disciples.
(Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15)
