Organizational Statement of Faith: 

We believe that the Holy Bible to be divinely revealed and breathed out by God. It is entirely trustworthy, the only supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. We believe that there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, born of a Virgin, the only incarnation of God, in His life which was without sin, in His miracles, in His death which, through His shed blood, cleanses us from the penalty of sin for all those who trust in Him alone, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of God the Father and in His personal return in power and glory. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful human beings, new birth in and by the Holy Spirit is essential. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling followers of Christ are enabled to live a godly life. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; that they are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal judgment for all those who have not trusted in God ƒÆ’ ‚‚ ƒâ€š ‚’s salvation. We believe in the spiritual unity of all the followers of Christ.
