STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe in one living and true God; eternal, omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, and creator of all things visible and invisible; giver of light, love, and perfect Spirit in whom all things find their source, support and end.
We believe in the Trinity; that God is three persons of the same nature, power, and eternity: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
We believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God who became a man, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, executed, and buried for our sins. On the third day, He rose again, ascended into Heaven with a glorified body, and who with God the Father, governs all creatures and shall one day come again to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the eternal and true presence of God among us for our direction, comfort, strength, enlightenment and edification to the body of Christ. Our transformation into the likeness of Christ's character are through the fruits and gifts for world evangelization, which are given by the Holy Spirit and his signs, wonders, and miracles.
We believe in the Kingdom of God, and his unshakable, celestial, and eternal justice. When we have faith in Jesus Christ and recognize his lordship, we begin to enjoy the benefits of the Kingdom, such as salvation, justice, love, kindness, joy, and peace. The Kingdom of God begins here on Earth.
We believe that man must honor God with his life and property, since God created and established him as administrator over creation. He is the sole owner of all.
We believe that the Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God that was given as a guide, and rule of faith and conduct, of the Church. It is the living and active Word used by God to reveal his love and truth, our human condition, and the way for communion between God and man.
We believe in the Universal Church, a community of regenerate persons who have the same faith and way of life as Jesus Christ; people that deeply love their neighbors as themselves, and enjoy fellowship and communion, regardless of cultural, social and racial barriers. The Church's mission is to proclaim the praises of the Lord Jesus, who called us out of darkness into his marvelous light and welcomes His children, presenting ordinances, baptism, the Lord's Supper, and the institution of marriage.
We believe that man was created by God, in his image and likeness. Man knowingly fell into sin, and by sin, death passed upon all men. We believe in the forgiveness of sins and that man is justified only by grace, through faith in Jesus Christ.
We believe in the resurrection from the dead on Judgment Day and eternal life for those who repent and have faith in Jesus Christ. We believe in the complete liberation and manifestation of God's kingdom in its fullness upon the arrival of Jesus Christ as Lord and Judge, bringing the renewal of heaven and earth, life everlasting, love, justice and peace.
