STATEMENT OF FAITH
Christianity is based on the Bible alone. We believe that the Bible is God’s “Word” (communication to humans) written by men, divinely directed and inspired by God through the Holy Spirit. The Bible is infallible and entirely trustworthy, and is the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; and 2 Peter 1:20-21.).
God is one, eternally existing in three persons—Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God the Father is perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, and measureless in power. God showed His love for all people by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins so that we might have eternal life with God in heaven. (Luke 18:27; John 3:16-17; Romans 11:33; 1 Peter 1:16; 1 John 4:7-10;.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Conceived through the power of the Holy Spirit, He was born of the Virgin Mary. Jesus led a sinless life, and chose to die as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people. He was buried and resurrected from the dead and appeared to many people. He ascended into heaven and now is seated at the “right hand of God” (the highest place of honour and power), interceding as the mediator and advocate for the sins of His people (those who accepted him as Saviour and Lord). (Matthew 16:16-17, 25:31-46; Mark 14:61-62; Luke 1:34-35 and 2:7; John 1:1, 1:14, 5:22-30, 10:30, 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8; Hebrews 4:15; 1Peter 2:22-24.).
Jesus will return again to the earth, in glory, to righteously judge all people based on their acceptance or rejection of Him. Therefore, Jesus is the only way to bridge the gap of sin between God and people, thus He is the only way to have a relationship with God now, and eternal life with God in heaven. All people, everywhere, need to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through His shed blood on the cross. Those who reject or ignore Jesus Christ will suffer eternally in Hell. (Matthew 25:31-46; Romans 3:23, 6:23; 2 Thessalonians 1:5-10; Revelation 20:11-15 and 22:3-5, John 1:12; Acts 2:38-39, 8:26-40, 16:25-34; 1 Peter 3:21-22.).
Holy Christian living requires a right relationship with God, and a heartfelt concern for the spiritual and social hurts and needs of all humanity. The Holy Spirit is sent by God, and convicts the world concerning sin, righteousness, and judgment. He is received in full when someone gets right with God through Jesus Christ. He is the power that enables Christians to live a Christ-like and godly life according to the Word of God. (John 16:8-11; Acts 2:38; Romans 8:9; Galatians 5:16-26; 1 John 3:24, 1 Peter 1:14-16, 2 Peter 1:1-10.).
The Gospel of Jesus Christ must be spread to all people everywhere using every means of communication available to us. We must dedicate ourselves to the service of our Lord and to His authority for our lives. (Matthew 28:18-20, Matthew 25:31-46; 1 Corinthians 15:58; 1 Corinthians 9:16-27; Isaiah 61:1-2, Romans 12:1, Ephesians 6:5-8, Romans 7:5-6, Galatians 5:13-14, Colossians 3:22-24.).
