It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things.
He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
We believe that sin has separated every person from God and His purpose for our lives.
We believe that although man was originally created to have fellowship with God but he became separated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man cannot attain a right relationship with God through his own effort.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God.
He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the only way of salvation through the forgiveness of sin. Salvation occurs when people repent of their sins and place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin. Salvation is a gift from God, and it cannot be earned through our own efforts.
We believe in water baptism, as commanded by Jesus, as a public declaration of a believer’s faith.
We also believe in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, which is a separate/subsequent experience apart from salvation. We believe the Holy Spirit enables a believer to use spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues.
We believe that the Church is a local community of believers unified through faith in Christ.
It is committed to the teachings of Christ and obeying all of His commands, and it seeks to bring the Gospel to the world. The Church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ. We believe that although differences exist in expression, the Church of Jesus is one body globally. We believe in the necessity of believers to meet together regularly for fellowship.
We believe that human beings are created to exist forever.
They will exist either eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is Heaven. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence. We believe that our eternal destination of either Heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.
