STATEMENT  OF  FAITH

 

1. We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory with all the attributes of Deity.  We believe God, as the Trinity, is creator of all, sustainer of all, and sovereign over all.


2. We believe in God the Father, and infinite personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.


3. We believe in Jesus Christ as God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, true God and true man manifested in flesh but leading a sinless life. He provided the vicarious atonement for our sins through His death and gave us eternal life through His resurrection from the dead.


4. We believe in the Holy Spirit who is the Third Person of the Triune God. He was sent forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide.


5. We believe that the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired, without error in the original manuscripts, and the only infallible blueprint for faith and living.


6. We believe in the personal, visible return of Jesus Christ to this earth for the establishment of His Kingdom, in the resurrection of the dead for the final judgment, in eternal blessings for the righteous, and in the endless suffering of the wicked in the eternal torments of Hell.


7. We believe that all people are sinners by nature and therefore are under condemnation and that God forgives and regenerates by the Holy Spirit those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. This personal salvation is by God’s grace, through faith, and not because of works: it is the gift of God through the shed blood of Jesus Christ at Calvary.


8. We believe in the Spirit-filled life as a life of separation and sanctification from the world through the blood of Jesus Christ. Only through the Spirit’s enablement and grace can men be perfected in holiness of heart and life in the fear of God as evidenced by the fruits of the Spirit. (Galatians 5:22&23).


9. We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as an experience subsequent to salvation, generally accompanied by the physical manifestation of speaking with other tongues as the Holy Spirit gives utterance. (Acts 2:4).


10. We believe in Water Baptism, preferably immersion, as a direct commandment of our Lord Jesus Christ to all who have truly believed in Jesus as Savior and Lord. The baptism in water is a symbol of the believersidentification with Jesus in His death, burial and resurrection.


11. We believe in divine healing, through faith, as provided by the atoning blood of Jesus Christ.


12. We believe in the present supernatural ministry of the Holy Spirit, who bestows the spiritual gifts, including the word of wisdom, the word of knowledge, faith, gifts of healing, working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, various kinds of tongues, and interpretations of tongues. We believe the Holy Spirit has dwelt in and worked through believers on the earth since the day of Pentecost and will continue until our Lords return.


13. We believe the Lord’s Supper is an ordinance of the church consisting of bread and the fruit of the vine. This ordinance is observed as an outward sign of what has happened in the hearts of all who have repented of sin and received Christ as Saviour. These symbols express our common sharing in the divine nature of the Lord Jesus Christ, a memorial of His suffering and death. This partaking of the Lord’s spiritual body joins all believers in unity until He returns.


14. We believe also in the laying on of hands by the presbytery, pastors, elders, and deacons for the separation unto and are fulfillment of Christian ministry, service and calling.


15. We believe in the evil reality of satan and his demons. Their desire is to deceive and destroy the believer and undermine his or her authority over satanic principalities and evil spirits.


16. We believe in the eminent, victorious, and personal return of Jesus Christ to establish His Kingdom and rule on earth.


17. We believe in a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Whoever is not found written in the Book of Life, together with the devil and his angels, the beast and false prophet, will be condemned to everlasting punishment in the lake of fire which bums with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.


18. We believe in an intensive, world-wide evangelistic and missionary effort in accordance with the great commission. This will incur signs, wonders and healing miracles accompanying the preaching of the gospel.


19. We believe in a New Heaven and a New Earth created as the home for the righteous in Jesus Christ.


20. We believe that God, in His sovereignty, is progressively giving fresh and deeper revelation of the truth contained in His Word.
