OUR BELIEFS

GOD

There is but one eternal, all-powerful, all-knowing and everywhere-present Triune God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit— Who is the Creator and Sustainer of all things (Deuteronomy 6:4-5; 1 Timothy 2:5).


JESUS CHRIST

He is God incarnate, yet human. He lived a sinless life, died to make atonement for the sins of all mankind, was bodily resurrected and is now mediator at the right hand of the Father. He is assuredly coming in power and glory for His believing followers, and is the only Savior of men (John 1:1, 14; Titus 2:11-14).


HOLY SPIRIT

He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, regenerating all who repent of their sins and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. He sanctifies, empowers, teaches, guides and comforts the believers (John 16:7,8, 12-15).


BIBLE

The Bible is the divinely inspired, inerrant, infallible Word of God and is authoritative in all matters it addresses (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).


SALVATION

Salvation is the result of genuine repentance of sin and faith in the atoning work of Christ. It brings forgiveness to the penitent, makes him a partaker of the divine nature and gives peace with God. We call this new birth (Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 1:3-5).


CHURCH

We believe in the invisible and universal Church as an organism. She is the Bride of Jesus Christ and  composed of all believers in the Lord Jesus  (Matthew 16:18; Hebrews 12:22-24).


COMMUNION (The Lord's Table/Eucharist)

We believe that Jesus instituted the Lord's Table as a memorial of His death. We  do not believe a person is saved by receiving communion. Rather, partaking in communion is a way of our corporately celebrating the death of Christ, our oneness in Christ, and our forgiveness in Christ. Any person who has trusted in Jesus Christ by faith is invited to join us during our communion celebrations.


BAPTISM AND CHILD DEDICATION

We believe that it is important for a person to be baptized once he/she has trusted Christ for salvation. This is an important step of obedience but is not a requirement for salvation. The preferred mode of baptism is total immersion in water. We do not baptize infants; rather we practice child dedication wherein parents commit before the church to raise their child(ren) in the fear and admonition of the Lord, and the congregation commits to the parents to help them the best they know how (1 Samuel 1: 26-28; Luke 2:22-39).
