We believe there is one God: infinite, eternal, almighty and perfect in holiness, truth and love. In the unity of the Godhead, there are three distinct Persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit, co-existent, co-equal, co-eternal, each truly Deity. One God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – is the foundation of Christian faith and life.
We believe in God the Father, Creator of heaven and earth. By His word and for His glory, He freely and supernaturally created the world out of nothing. Through the same word, He daily sustains all His creatures. He rules over all and is, together with the Son and the Spirit, the only Sovereign. His plans and purposes cannot be thwarted. He is faithful to every promise, works all things together for good to those who love Him and, in His unfathomable grace, gave His Son, Jesus Christ, for our redemption. He made all things for the praise of His glory and intends for man to live in fellowship with Himself.
We believe that Jesus the Christ, the only begotten Son of God, is the eternal Word made flesh, supernaturally conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary in the village of Bethlehem. He is perfect in nature, teaching and obedience. He is fully God and fully man. He was always with God and is God. Through Him all things came into being and were created. He was before all things, and in Him all things hold together by the word of His power. He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born over all creation, and in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead bodily. He is the only Savior for the sins of the world, having shed His blood and died a vicarious death on Calvary’s cross. By His death in our place for our sins, He revealed divine love and upheld divine justice, removing our guilt and reconciling us to God. Having redeemed us from sin, on the third day, He rose bodily from the grave, victorious over death and the powers of darkness and, for a period of 40 days, appeared to over 500 witnesses, demonstrating many convincing proofs of His resurrection. He ascended into heaven where, at God’s right hand, He intercedes for His people and rules as Lord over heaven and earth, awaiting His return. He is the Head of His body, the Church, and should be worshipped, loved, served and obeyed by all.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life, who convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment. Through the proclamation of the gospel, He compels men to repent of their sins and confess Jesus as Lord. By the same Spirit, a person is led to trust in divine mercy. The Holy Spirit brings about the new birth, unites believers to Jesus Christ in faith and dwells within the regenerate. The Holy Spirit has come to glorify the Son Who, in turn, came to glorify the Father. He will lead the church into a right understanding and application of the truth of God’s Word. He is to be respected, honored and worshipped as God.
