We Believe

That the scripture of both Old and New Testament are verbally inspired by God, and is the final authority of faith and conduct. It is infallible and inerrant in the original writing and God has revealed His mind to us through the 66 canonized Books of the Bible. The scriptures have been preserved and passed on to us by God, and is the supreme authority on the matters of faith and practice. The Bible alone is the basis of all the Christian faith and doctrines. (2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:21; Deut. 4:2; Rev. 22:18, 19; Ps 119:89)

In one God, the creator, eternally existing in three persons in a threefold relationship namely Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit each a distinct person, co-equal, co-eternal and the same substance having the same nature, attributes and perfection. [(Doctrine of Trinity: God is one in essence but three in person) (1 Jn. 5:7; Mat. 28:19; Deut. 4:38; Jn. 14:16; 17:3; 1 Tim. 2:5; James 2:19)]

That Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is True God and True man, perfect without sin. The Lord Jesus Christ is perfect, holy and impeccable. His death on the cross was voluntary, substitutionary and redemptive. He was buried, but he rose again and ascended to the Father, according to the scriptures and now mediating as our high priest. (Jn. 1:1, 14, 18; 10:30; Matt. 1:20; Lk. 1:30, 31; Phill. 2:5-7; 1 cor. 15:3, 4; 2 cor. 5:21; Col. 1:19, 20; 2:9; Heb. 7:26, 27; 9:26)

That man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death which is separation from God; that Adam’s sin is imputed to the whole race of mankind; that all human race are born with a sinful nature; and that when they reach the state of moral responsibility become sinners before God in thought, words and deed. Therefore, he cannot see nor enter the kingdom of God until he is born again by the Holy Spirit. (Gen. 1:26, 27; Romans 5:12; Eph 2:1-3; Jn. 3:3, 6, 7; Tit. 3:5)

The scripture teaches and we believe that man is a sinner by birth and wages of sin is death. The Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to scriptures as a substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believes in Him are freely justified and accepted before God in the character and merit of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the only Saviour. All those who confess with their mouth and believe in their heart that Jesus Christ is Lord become the children of God through the precious blood of Jesus Christ. We believe that all are saved through faith and not by works. They are born of the Spirit from above. Salvation involves redemption, regeneration, sanctification, justification and glorification. We also believe that Salvation is an act of God and obtained by grace as a free gift from God. (Rom. 4:12; 3:23; 6:23; Gal. 3:16; 2 Cor; Rom. 10:9, 10; Jn. 5:17; 1:12; 1 Jn. 1:9; 3:1)

In the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ, in His ascension to heaven and that in His present glorified body He is the Head of the Church, the Lord of the individual believer, the High Priest over the house of God and the Advocate in the family of God.

In the personal, imminent, pretribulational, and the premillenial second coming of the Christ; first to receive His own to Himself, and to set up His Earthly Kingdom and to reign over the redeemed Israel and all the nations; that is, to bring peace and blessings into the whole world. The Scriptures teaches us about the pre-millennial, pre-tribulation return of our Lord and the rapture of the Church. Then the saints will be caught up in the air with Him in a twinkling of an eye. And then after tribulation, Christ Himself will visibly descend with His saints to establish His millennial kingdom on the earth. (1 Thes. 4:16, 17; 1 Cor. 15:52-55; Jn. 14:1-3; Acts. 1:11; Phi 3:20, 21; 2 Thes. 1:7-9)

All who by faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ as saviour are born again of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God, receive the Holy Spirit and a new nature and also are baptized by the Holy Spirit in to the body of Christ. The Scripture teaches us the eternal security of Salvation of every believer. The moment a sinner receives Jesus as his personal Saviour and Lord, he is saved eternally. The saved once are foreknown, predestined and called by God, and the believer is kept by the power of God through faith unto Salvation. [(When a believer sins he loses the ‘joy of Salvation but not Salvation’, which is eternal life. Confessing of sins on the basis of 1 Jn. 1:9 can restore this joy. Jn. 10:28, 29; 1 Jn. 5:13; Jn. 5:24; 8:29, 30; Ps. 51:12)]

All who are born again should be baptized in water in the name of the Father, Son and of the Holy Spirit and worship the Lord in Spirit and Truth. The Scripture teaches us that the local Church has only two ordinances to observe. They are baptism and Lord’s Supper. [We believe that all who received Christ as their personal Saviour and Lord should be baptized the name of the Father, Son and of the Holy Spirit. We believe in baptism by immersion in water which is identification in His death, burial and resurrection.] We believe that Lord’s Supper should be observed in remembrance of Christ to show forth His death for our sins until He comes again. [Baptism does not mean regeneration or forgiveness of sins, but it is outward symbol of an inward conversion, and is done in the obedience to the command of the Lord. Baptism is a command and not an option.] The bread and wine are the only two substances used as the symbols of the body and blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Scripture teaches neither transubstantiation nor consubstantiation, but the elements continue to remain merely elements, symbols or pictures. (Matt. 28:19, 20; 26:26-28; 3:13, 15; Mk. 16:16; Acts. 2:38, 41; 8:12, 13, 36, 38; 9:18; Rom. 6:3, 4; Gal 3:27; Col 2:12; 1 Pet 3:21; 1 Cor.11:23-27)

In the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust; the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting punishment of the unsaved.
