MAN: We believe that all who, in faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior are born again by the Holy Spirit and thus become the children of God. Salvation involves redemption, regeneration, sanctification and glorification (John 8:41-45; Romans 10:9,10 Romans 5:7-11; Colossians 1:13, 14 John 17:16-22; II Corinthians 5:17, 1 Corinthians 6:19)
SALVATION: We believe that all who, in faith receive the Lord Jesus as Savior are born again by the Holy Spirit and thus become the children of God. Salvation involves redemption, regeneration, sanctification and glorification (Romans 8:14-17; Galatians 4:6, 7)
THE PRIESTHOOD OF THE BELIEVER: We believe in the priesthood of all believers so that every Christian has direct access to God in prayer through Jesus Christ, our great High Priest, and that there is no mediator between God and man other than Jesus Christ (I Peter 2:9, 10, Hebrews 4:14-5:2)
THE SCRIPTURE: We believe that the Bible is the verbally inspired word of God and is without error in the original writings. The Bible being the revealed word of God is the ground and foundation from which all claims of truth shall be proven. (II Timothy 3: 16-17, II Peter 1:21)
GOD: We believe that there is only one true and living God existing in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each is a distinct person, but all of one essence and all having the same nature, perfections, and attributes, and each is worthy of precisely the same worship, confidence and obedience ( Genesis1:1-3,26, Mathew 3: 16,17, John 1:1,14, John 10:30,14:26,15:26, Matthew 28:19)
JESUS CHRIST: We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, shed his blood on Calvary in our place, was buried, rose again and ascended to the Father according to the scripture (Luke 1: 26-33)
HOLY SPIRIT: We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, very God, co –existent with the Father and the Son. The Holy Spirit is the chief agent in the regeneration (rebirth) of the soul, the chief convictor of sin and the chief comforter of the believer. Along with regeneration, the Holy Spirit baptizes the believer into the body of Christ, permanently indwells him, and seals him in salvation for all eternity (John 16:1-13).
SECURITY OF THE BELIEVER: We believe that salvation is not only a gift from the Lord but also is sustained by the Lord. Therefore since salvation is wholly of the Lord, apart from the works of man, we hold that the believer shall be kept by the power of God through faith unto eternal salvation (Ephesians 2:8-10; Philippians 1:16; John 10:27-29).
