Essential Beliefs



  1. God
    God is the creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, each possessing all the attributes of deity. These three are co-equal and are One God.
  2. Jesus Christ
    Jesus Christ, the second person of the Trinity, came to this earth, lived a sinless human life and voluntarily paid for our sin by dying on the cross as our substitute. He arose from the dead and ascended into heaven and is the only mediator between God and man. He will return to earth and reign as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
  3. Holy Spirit
    The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth and guidance in doing what is right. He equips every believer with spiritual gifts to serve the mission of Christ through the church.
  4. The Bible
    The Bible is Gods Word to us. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because the Bible is God-inspired, it is the supreme source of truth, without error, and the final authority on all matters on which it speaks. It is the basis for our Christian belief and living.
  5. The Church
    The Church is the Body of Jesus Christ and the extension of Jesus’ ministry in the earth. The purpose of the church on earth is to fulfill “The Great Commandment” and “The Great Commission”, and to build a body of fully committed followers of Jesus Christ. We believe that Christians can only live the Christian life as God intended when we commit to relationships with other Christians in a local church. Accordingly we believe that local churches can best promote the cause of Jesus Christ by cooperating with one another in voluntary association with other churches that share similar missions, sets of values and convictions.
  6. Human Beings
    People are made in the image of God, and for the purpose of having fellowship with Him. Although every person has the potential for good, all of us have defied God by willingly going our own way. This attitude leads to sin and separates people from God. People are the supreme object of God’s creation and target of His love and affection. As a result, God gives grace to man through Jesus Christ, to end our alienation from Him and become reconciled to Him.
  7. Salvation
    Salvation is God’s free gift to man, but we must accept it. Salvation comes to man by God’s grace through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ, not the good works of humans. We can never make up for our sins by self improvement or good works. Only by receiving God’s grace and trusting in Jesus Christ alone for the forgiveness of sins can anyone be saved from sins penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one personally receives Jesus into their life by faith.
  8. Eternity
    People are created with an eternal spirit from God to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally united with God through salvation through Christ. To be eternally in union with God is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence. Only believers in Jesus Christ will enjoy eternal fellowship with God.
