| The inspired Scriptures
We believe the Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally
inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible,
authoritative rule of faith and conduct.
God in three persons
We believe the one true God has revealed himself as being the eternally
self-existent Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of mankind.
He has further revealed himself as a Trinity, that is, one being existing
in three Persons Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The Lord Jesus Christ
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, as revealed
in the Scripture, by His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles,
His death on the cross, His bodily resurrection from the dead and His
position at the right hand of God.
Creation and fall of man
We believe that man was created good and upright. However, man willfully
sinned and thereby was subjected not only to physical death but also
to spiritual death, which is separation from God.
We believe man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of
Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Salvation is received through repentance
toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Water baptism: We believe the ordinance of baptism
by immersion in water is commanded of all who repent and believe on
Christ as Savior. It represents having died with Christ and being raised
with Him to walk in newness of life.
Communion: We believe the Lord's Supper is a memorial
of Christ's suffering and death and a prophecy of His second coming.
It is commanded of all believers "until he comes."
Baptism in the Holy Spirit
We believe all Christians are entitled to and should seek the baptism
in the Holy Spirit with the initial physical sign of speaking with other
tongues according to Acts 2:4. This experience gives a Christian power
to witness by his/her life and words.
We believe sanctification is an act of separation from that which is
evil, and of dedication unto God.
Church and its mission
We believe the Church is the body of Christ with a divinely called ministry.
Its purpose is to evangelize the world, worship God and encourage believers
to grow in the likeness of Christ.
We believe deliverance from sickness is provided for in the Atonement
and is the privilege of all believers.
Second coming of Christ
We believe the blessed hope of the Church is Christ's return from heaven
to catch up the Christians who have died, together with those who are
alive, to be with Him forever.
We believe Christ will return with His saints to establish a 1,000-year
reign of peace. After this will come the final judgment of the wicked,
and then a new heaven and a new earth.
