We believe that God is ONE God (Deuteronomy 6:4) and that He has revealed Himself in THREE distinct persons (Matthew 3:13-17): the Father, our creator and preserver; the Son, Jesus, who is both God and man, and our only Saviour; the Holy Spirit, who creates faith in our hearts and enables us to live a God-pleasing life.
We believe the Bible is inspired by God and therefore the whole Bible is the true, unalterable word of God, clearly teaching the way of salvation. (2 Timothy 3:15-17)
We believe that God created man in His image, with body and soul, perfect, holy, righteous and eternal, but man of his own free will lost this perfection through sin. (Genesis 1:27, 3:19)
Sin is breaking the law of God (1 John 3:4). There are two kinds of sin: original (inherited) sin (Psalm 51:5); and actual (thoughts, words and deeds) sin (Matthew 15:19). Man is subject to death and eternal damnation by reason of the guilt that is attached to sin.
We believe that out of pure love and mercy God redeemed mankind from sin through the all-sufficient sacrifice of His only son, Jesus, and Jesus' resurrection shows that God was satisfied with the work of Christ (John 3:16, 1 John 2:2, Romans 4:25).
We believe that the sinner must personally accept the merits of Jesus for salvation and sincerely trust that "Jesus died for me." This faith and acceptance is a gift given to us from God (Psalm 31:14, John 17:3, James 1:21, Ephesians 2:8-9).
We believe the church established by Christ is the whole number of believers in Christ, for only believers are members of the true church. Jesus Christ is its one and only foundation (Ephesians 2:19-22) and Head (Colossians 1:18). The church is found wherever the gospel of Jesus Christ is preached and the sacraments are administered according to their institution.
We believe Christ instituted two sacraments: Baptism and the Lord's Supper. When Baptism is administered to infants or adults, according to the command of Christ, God offers His grace and forgiveness of sins (Acts 22:16).
In the Lord's Supper, all communicants really receive Christ's body and blood with the bread and wine. Those who recognize the real presence of Christ's body and blood receive the sacrament for the forgiveness of sins. Those who do not recognize the real presence of Christ's body and blood eat and drink judgment upon themselves (1 Corinthians 11:24-29). Since God says, "Let a man examine himself and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup," each communicant is urged to take to heart the following statements:
I am truly sorry for all my sins.
I trust the atoning sacrifice of Jesus for forgiveness and eternal life.
I recognize that I receive Christ's true body and blood with the bread and wine.
I resolve to dedicate my life to Jesus Christ by regular Christian worship, witness and service, and by turning away from my own sin.
We believe Christ will return visibly to earth (Acts 10:42) on the last day (Mark 13) to judge the world (Acts 10:42). The believers will go to heaven to be with God forever (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). The unbelievers will go to hell, eternally separated from God (Matthew 25:32, 46).
We believe on the last day, believers in Christ will rise from the dead, their souls reunited with their earthly bodies and glorified by Christ (John 14:29; 17:24).
