The Bible is God’s Word. The truths revealed in it did not have their origin with men, but with God. The Holy Spirit inspired the human authors of the Bible. We, therefore, believe that the bible is without error, completely true, relevant and up to date. We receive the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testament as eternal, authoritative, coherent, complete, and the only infallible rule of faith.

JESUS CHRIST

Matthew 17:15-17

John 1:1-14

Acts 2:32-33

Hebrews 4:14-15

Revelation 1:13-16

Image by James

Jesus of Nazareth is Christ, the Son of the living God who came to the world purposely to save sinners. He has existed throughout eternity as one of the persons of the Holy Trinity. He is the only begotten Son of God whose coming to the world had been foretold before He ever came in the flesh to die for us. He was born by the virgin Mary, conceived of the Holy Spirit, without sin. While on earth, He lived a perfect life, preached the gospel of the kingdom of God, and performed many great miracles; healed the sick, healed the blind, fed the multitudes, and raised the dead. He voluntarily surrendered his life to be crucified, He then resurrected, and ascended to heaven to become our High Priest. Jesus Christ will return to establish the kingdom of God on earth, and rule as King of Kings and Lord of Lords with His saints forever.

TRINITY

Matthew 3:16-17

2 Corinthians 13:14  

Hebrews 9:14

1 Peter 1:2

1 John 5:7

Image by Carlos Torres

In the Divine Trinity; one Triune God exists in three Persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – eternal in being, identical in nature, and equal in Power and Glory.

SALVATION

Hebrews 9:29 

Romans 3:10, 23

Acts 3:19

Romans 10:8-13

Jude 3:24

shutterstock_1760148725.jpg

Sin is an inward spiritual attitude of rebellion towards God, which is expressed in outward acts of disobedience. Man, by virtue of being born after the fallen Adam, is born into sin which separates us from God. Jesus Christ without sin, took our sins upon Himself, died in our place, and rose again from the dead, that we might be forgiven and receive eternal life. The word salvation in the Greek is “soteria” which translates “saving” and “preservation from destruction and judgment”. To appropriate salvation, we must acknowledge our sins and repent from them; we must believe that Christ died for us and rose again; we must receive the risen Christ as our personal Savior, and we must publicly confess Him as our Lord.

MAN

Genesis 1:26-31

Genesis 2:7

Psalm 139:14

Psalm 51:5

Mark 1:15

Col. 1:16

Wedding Rings

Man was created in the image of God before whom he walked in innocence, holiness, and purity, but by voluntary disobedience and transgression, he fell from the glory of God to the depths of sin. The consequence of this is that the heart of man is inclined to evil by nature having been born after the fallen image of Adam.

MARRIAGE

Ephesian 5:31-32

Genesis 2:18-24

Matthew 19:4-6

Hebrews 13:4 

Wedding Rings

Marriage is defined to be a living example of the relationship between Christ and the Church. Marriage is a holy sacrament of the church defined as being between one naturally born man and one naturally born woman. Therefore, as a church, we do not recognize common-law or same-sex marriage.

RESTITUTION

Genesis 20:1-18

Genesis 32:9-32

Luke 19:8-10

Philemon 7:21

Acts 24:16

Image by Jehyun Sung

Restitution is the act of restoring anything to its rightful owner; an act of giving an equivalent for loss or damage. Restitution makes a person pay back just debts, restore stolen or misappropriated articles, uncover his crimes, and confess his lies. This is to be done whether the person injured knew it or not – God knows. It is repentance in works expressed not only by words of confession but also by works of repayment.

WATER BAPTISM

Mark 16:16

Matt 28:19-20

Acts 2:38-41

Acts 8:37-39

Romans 6:4

Image by Yoann Boyer

In water baptism. Believing in Christ produces an inward change in our heart; baptism in water is an outward act of obedience, by which we testify of the change that has taken place in our hearts. By this act, we make ourselves one with Christ in His burial and in His resurrection; we are separated from the old life of sin and defeat. We come out of the water to a new life of righteousness and victory, made possible by God’s power in us.

DIVINE HEALING

Luke 13:11, 16

1 John 3:8

Mark 16:17-18

Image by Tamilazhagan

Sickness is a direct consequence of the fall of man and his continuance in sin. Redemption not only dealt with sin but also its consequences, which includes sickness and diseases. Christ died on the cross; bore not only our sins, but also our sicknesses. Divine healing comes to us through the finished work of Christ on the cross of Calvary by faith in the word of God and by the manifestation of the gift of healing. 

BAPTISM OF

THE HOLY SPIRIT

Joel 2:28

Luke 3:16

Acts 2:38-39

Acts 19:2

Mark 16:17

Image by Marek Piwnicki

Baptism in the Holy Ghost is a supernatural enduement with power from heaven to equip the Christian for effective witness and service. The initial evidence of Holy Spirit Baptism is speaking in an unknown tongue as the spirit gives utterance. The unknown tongue is a prayer language given to the believer, understood by God but unknown to man. It enables the Christian to build up his own spiritual life by direct and continual communion with God.

THE LORD'S SUPPER

Luke 22: 14-19

Acts 2: 42, 46

1 Corinthians 11:26

Image by CHUTTERSNAP

The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements – bread and the fruit of the vine, is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is a memorial of His suffering, death and a prophecy of His second coming. Jesus Christ commanded the church to do it in His remembrance. The bible record also shows the early church took this commandment seriously. 

SANTIFICATION

Acts 20:32

Romans 15:16

2 Thessalonians 2:13

Hebrews 10:10-14

Ephesians 5:25-26

1 Peter 1:2, 15, 21-22

1 Peter 1:15

John 3:8-9

1 Corinthians 10:13

Matthew 5:48

Image by nega

The word sanctification in Greek language is “hagiasmos” meaning to be apart from sin, consecrated unto God and conformed to the image of Christ Himself.  True holiness is impossible without the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and all attempts at living holy without the Holy Spirit generally results in frustration and failure.

RAPTURE OF

THE CHURCH

1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18

1 Corinthians 15:23, 51-58

Phil 3:2-21

1 John 3:1-3

Luke 21:31-35

Image by Agê Barros

The rapture describes an event in the future when Jesus Christ will in the twinkling of an eye, transform all believers (living and dead) to immortal, giving them a resurrected body, and catching them up to meet the Lord in the air. The word rapture simply means sudden snatching out of this world of believers. The actual word used in the bible is “caught up”. This event marks the beginning of the seven years reign of the Antichrist.

THE GREAT TRIBULATION

Daniel 9:24-27

Isaiah 61:2

Revelation 19

1 Thessalonians 1:10

Revelation 3:10

Image by Stormseeker

There is a seven-year period between the rapture of the church and the millennial reign of Jesus Christ of difficulty and trouble on earth following immediately after the rapture. During this period, God’s judgment will be poured out on all unbelieving and rebellious humanity. This judgment period would also signify when the people of Israel will turn to Christ when they will be reconciled to God through Him whom they rejected.

JUDGEMENT SEAT OF CHRIST

Romans 14:10

2 Corinthians 5: 10

1 Peter 4: 17

shutterstock_2234881197.jpg

The judgment seat of Christ is the judgment of believers. It is not a judgment of condemnation but a judgment of reward where believers will be rewarded according to our faithfulness in our service to God and the use of our God-given gifts and talents.

THE  MILLENNIAL REIGN OF JESUS CHRIST

Isaiah 11:1-10

Isaiah 35:1-10

Zechariah 9:9-10

Zechariah 14:16-17

Revelation 20:1-15

Religious Statue

The millennial age is a period of one thousand years, in which the purpose of God is fully realized on earth. It will be a time of the theocratic kingdom. This period will come after the seven years reign of the great tribulation. It will be a time of peace, joy, holiness, glory, comfort, justice, full knowledge, and the removal of curses and sickness.

GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGEMENT

Rev 20:7-11, 12-13

Matthew 7:21-23

John 5:22, 27

Romans 2:16

Acts 10:42

shutterstock_1822490759.jpg

The Great White Throne Judgement is an event where those who did not know Jesus as their Savior during their life will come before the Lord and be judged by Christ. This judgment would take place after the millennial reign of Christ.

ETERNAL HEAVEN

Revelation 21:1-5

John 14:1-3

Revelation 22:1-5

2 Peter 3:10

pexels-brett-sayles-1431822.jpg

The present earth that is so marred and cursed by evil will pass away after the Great White Throne Judgment. After the dissolution of the present heaven and earth at the end of Christ’s millennial reign, God will create a new heaven and a new earth better than anything this world has ever known. The new earth will be the Christian heaven. It is the glorious eternal home of born-again believers.

ETERNAL HELL

Luke 16:19-31

Revelations 20:10,15

Matthew 25:33-34

John 14:1-3

Image by Jr Korpa

The lake of fire (commonly called hell) is the final abode of Satan and those sinners who reject Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Hell is the place of eternal torment for the devil, his angels, and all those who reject Christ as the savior.
