Faith

1.1. The Holy Scripture – We believe that the Bible is the word from the living God
(2 Timothy. 3.16 to 17)

1.2. Godhead – We believe that God is triune: Father, Son and Holy Spirit
(John 14: 2 Corinthians. 13.13).

1.3. The Fall of Man – We believe that man was created in God’s image, but that by
voluntary disobedience lost his perfection (Romans 5.12).

1.4. God’s salvation plan – We believe that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
How he mourned for forgiveness for all who believe in Him
(John 3.16-17, Rom. 5.8).

1.5. Salvation by grace of God – We believe that we have no justice, but we must come to
God to share in Christ’s righteousness. (Eph. 2.8).

1.6. Repentance and acceptance – We believe that by sincere repentance and a
wholehearted acceptance of Jesus Christ, we are declared righteous before God
(John 1.12, Rom. 3.22 to 24).

1.7. The new birth – We believe the change that takes place in a person’s heart and life at
conversion is noticeable (2 Corinthians. 5.17, Gal. 2:20).

1.8. Daily Christian – We think that it is the will of God to sanctify us every day, so we are
constantly growing in faith (Hebrews 6:1).

1.9. Baptism and Communion – We believe that baptism by immersion is an outward sign
and confession of an internal work (Matt. 28.19; Rom. 6.3 to 8). We believe in
celebrating the Lord’s Supper in remembrance of Jesus’ death, using bread and wine
as symbols (1 Cor. 11.24 to 25).

1.10. Baptism in the Holy Spirit – We believe that baptism in the Holy Spirit is there to
give the believer power, and that the Spirit fills us in the same manner as in Biblical
times (Acts 2:4).

1.11. A Spirit Filled Life – We believe it is God’s will that every day we walk in the Spirit
(Eph. 4.30 to 32).

1.12. Fruit and gifts of the Spirit – We believe that the Holy Spirit has gifts that He will
give to the Christians, and that we should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a Spirit-
filled life (1 Cor. 12, 1-11, Gal. 5.22 ).

1.13. Moderation – We believe that a Christian’s experience and daily walk should never
lead in the extreme or fanaticism (Philippians 3.12 to 16).

1.14. Divine Healing – We believe that divine healing is the power of God to heal the sick
in answer to the prayer of faith (Mark 16.18; Jak. 5.14 to 16).

1.15. Christ’s Second Coming – We believe the second coming of Christ is personal and
imminent (1.Tess.4 0.16 to 17).

1.16. Relationship to the Church-We believe it is our sacred duty to tie ourselves to
Christ’s visible church (Acts 16, 5; Heb.10, 25).

1.17. Relationship to the Authority – We believe that we will always support those who
govern, except in what is contrary to the will of God (Romans 13.1-5).

1.18. The eternal sentence 
 We believe that all one day stand in Yahweh’s court, and
there receive eternal life or death (Rev.20 0.11 to 15).

1.19. Heaven – We believe that heaven is a wonderful, forever home for the born-again
believers (John 14.1-3, Rev.. 7.15 to 17).

1.20. Hell – We believe that hell is a place of eternal torment for all who reject Jesus as
Savior (Matthew 25.41-46; John. 3.18; Rev. 20.15).

1.21. Evangelism – We believe that soul winning is the church’s most important
responsibilities (Matthew 28.19-20; Jak. 5:20).

1.22. Tithing and Holy Gifts – We believe that the method God has ordained to support
and expand His kingdom is by giving tithes and freewill offerings
(Mal. 3.10; 2 Cor. 9.6 to 9).
