What We Believe

 

STATEMENT OF FAITH
What we believe…
… about God
… about Jesus Christ
 
 
 
God is the creator and ruler of the universe.
He has eternally existed in three
personalities: the Father, the Son, and the
Holy Spirit. These three personalities are
co-equal and are one God.
 
 
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal
with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human
life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice
for the sins of all people by dying on a cross.
He arose from the dead after three days to
demonstrate His power over sin and death.
He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return
someday to earth to reign as
King of kings, and Lord of lords.
 
… about the Holy spirit
… about the Bible
 
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father
and the Son of God. He is present in the
world to make us aware of our need for Jesus
Christ. He also lives in every Christian from
the moment of salvation. He provides the
Christian with power for living, understanding
of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what
is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift
when they are saved. As Christians, we seek
to live under His control daily.
 
 
 
 
The Bible is God’s word to us. It was written
by human authors, under the supernatural
guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme
source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.
Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth
without any mixture of error.
… about Human Beings
… about Salvation
 
People are made in the spiritual image of
God, to be like Him in character. People are
the supreme object of God’s creation.
Although every person has tremendous
potential for good, all of us are marred by an
attitude of disobedience towards God called
‘sin.’ This attitude separates people from God
and causes many problems in life.
 
 
Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must
accept it. We can never make up for our own sin
by self-improvement or good works. Only by
trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of
forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s
penalty. When we turn from our self-rule life
and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved.
Eternal life begins the moment one receives
Jesus’ life into their life by faith.
 
… about Eternity
 
 
People were created to exist forever. We will
either exist eternally separated from God by
sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness
and salvation. To be eternally separated from
God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him
is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real
places of eternal existence.
