Doctrine Of The Church


The Bible

We believe that the Bible is God’s written revelation to man, and thus the sixty-six books of the Bible given to us by the Holy Spirit constitute the plenary (inspired equally in parts) Word of God. (1 Corinthians 2:7-14; 2 Peter 1:20-21)


 God the Father

We believe that God the Father, the first Person of the Trinity, orders and disposes all things according to His own purpose and grace. (Psalm 145:8-9; 1 Corinthians 8:6)  He is the Creator of all things. (Genesis 1:1-31; Ephesians 3:9)


God the Son

We believe that Jesus Christ, the second Person of the Trinity, possesses all the divine excellencies, and in these He is coequal, co substantial, and coeternal with the Father. (John 10:30; 14:9)

We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through the shedding of His blood and sacrificial death on the cross.

We believe that in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave, God confirmed the deity of His Son and gave proof that God has accepted the atoning work of Christ on the cross. Jesus' bodily resurrection is also the guarantee of a future resurrection life for all believers. (John 5:26-29; 14:19; Romans 1:4; 4:25; 6:5-10; 1 Corinthians 15:20, 23)


God the Holy Spirit

We believe that the third Person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit, is a divine Person, eternal, possessing all the attributes of personality and deity.

We believe that the Holy Spirit administers spiritual gifts to the church. The Holy Spirit glorifies neither Himself nor His gifts by ostentatious displays, but He does glorify Christ by implementing His work of redeeming the lost and building up believers in the most holy faith.(John 16:13-14; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 2 Corinthians 3:18)



We believe that salvation is wholly of God by grace on the basis of the redemption of Jesus Christ, the merit of His shed blood, and not on the basis of human merit or works. (John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-10; 1 Peter 1:18-21)
