We believe in
1. The Bible:
All the Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man. The Lord established it in Israel and commanded our ancestors to teach their children. They are useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
(Psalms 78:4-8; Isaiah 34:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13).
2. The Trinity:
The one true God has revealed himself as the eternally self-existent “I AM,” the Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of mankind. He has further revealed himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10-11; Matthew 3:16-17; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22).
3. The Deity of Jesus:
The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, His virgin birth into this world (conceived by the holy spirit), His ministry, crucifixion, death, burial, resurrection and exaltation to the right hand of God
(John 1:1-3, Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31,35; Colossians 1:15-16; 1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:39;
1 Corinthians 15:4; Acts 1:9,11; 2:33; Philippians 2:9-11; Hebrews 1:3).
4. The Holy Spirit:
The Holy Spirit is the comforter that he may abide with us forever. All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the baptism in the Holy Spirit. God will pour out of His Spirit on all flesh in the last days
(John 14:16; John 3:5; Acts 2:17).
5. The Evidence of Gifts of Holy Spirit:
The anointing of the Holy Spirit is witnessed by the initial physical sign of speaking in tongues as the Spirit of God gives them utterance. With it comes the power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts (Prophesy, visions & dreams, healings and miracles) and their uses in the work of the ministry
(Acts 2:1-4; 17-18; Luke 24:49, Acts 1:8, Acts 8:14-17).
6. The fall of Man and his salvation:
God created man in His own image to seek godly offspring (holy generation), however, man disobeyed (sinned) and incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God. Therefore, as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one (Jesus) shall many be made righteous. Now, man's only hope of redemption is through the blood of Jesus Christ. Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ
(Genesis 1:27; Malachi 2:17; Romans 3:23-26, Romans 5:18-19; Romans 10:9-10; Colossians 1:14; John 1:12; Galatians 3:26).
7. The Baptism by immersion:
Baptism is not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God, being buried (whole body) with Jesus by baptism into death. All who repent and believe on Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. Thus they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life
(John 3:5; 1 Peter 3:21; Romans 6:2-4; Colossians 2:12; Acts 8:36-39; Acts 10:47-48; Acts 16:33).
8. The Holy Communion:
The holy communion is the new covenant established by Jesus for His believers: on the night Lord Jesus was betrayed, He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it, saying, “This is My body which is given for you”, Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for many for the forgiveness of sins”. For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes
(Mathews 26:26-29;Luke 22:18-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-32)
9. The Church and the Ministry:
The Church is the body of Christ in the unity of faith and knowledge of Christ, to perfect a human to the measure of the stature of fullness of Christ. So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints and for the work of ministry, and to appoint elders to set in order what was left unfinished. Jesus gave great commission to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature
(Ephesians 4:11-13; Colossians 1:9-11;1 Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-9; Mark 16:15-18)
10. The Resurrection, Reign, Judgment and new Heaven & Earth:
In the Blessed Hope - that Jesus is coming again (second coming) and Jesus raptures His Church prior to His return to Earth. All believers who were dead in Christ will rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air, and ones who are alive in Christ will be caught up with them, to be with the Lord forever. After Tribulation period, in visible form, Christ with his saints will return to earth and reign on earth for one thousand years (Millennial Reign). Then, there will be a final judgment for those who rejected Christ according to their works. Whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life, will be consigned to the everlasting punishment in the lake of fire. Finally, Christ will make New Heavens and a New Earth for those written in book of life, they will live with Him for eternity
(1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; 2 Peter 3:10; Revelation 20: 4-15; Revelation 21: 1-3).
