Statement of Faith

We believe that the Holy Bible, consisting of the sixty-six books, is God's inspired Word. It is infallible, authoritative, and without error. It is the only rule for faith and life. The criteria of interpreting the Holy Bible is Jesus Christ.

We believe in one God eternally existent in three Persons : Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in God the Father, Maker of heaven and earth, and sustainer of the universe. He is in his being Holy, Supreme, Loving, Righteous, Bestower of grace, Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent.

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, in His full deity and full humanity, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious atoning death through His shed blood, in the resurrection of His glorified body, in His Ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory for the translation of the church and the judgment of the World.

We believe in the Holy Spirit the Giver of Life, that He glorifies Christ and dwells in all believers, empowers them in the ministry of God, unites them for fellowship in Christ, and enables them to live a godly life, in every aspect, personal or social.

We believe that man is created in the image of God but he fell into sin and became separated from God, that man is incapable of saving himself, but he needs God's work of grace in regeneration by the power of the Holy Spirit, and that man's repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is absolutely essential for receiving salvation and acceptance before God.

We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ, and that Christ is the Head of the Church and the basis of its unity. The Church consists of all believers in Christ who have been spiritually born of God. The church of Christ is universal, but expresses its existence and function in local congregations, where the believers meet together for worship, fellowship, teaching, witnessing, and observing the ordinances: Baptism and the Lord's supper.

We believe in the resurrection of the body: The saved to the resurrection to life eternal, and the wicked to judgment and damnation.
