Our Statement of Faith

About us

Statement of Faith

We believe in One Holy and Eternal God, His Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit
(References: Gn 1:1, Ex 3:14-15, Jn 4:24, Ps 5:4, Mt 1:18-25)

We believe that the Bible is the infallible and inerrant Word of God, which is God-breathed and God inspired, recorded by man, and the basic foundation for our salvation, forgiveness of sins, and a walk in faith (Reference: 2 Tim 3:16).

We believe that all believers are meant to be united as one body of Christ,
working together for the glory of the Lord, and to bring others to salvation
(References: 1 Cor 12:12-27, Jn 17:21-23.

We believe that God desires for all men to be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the truth (Reference: 1 Tim 2:4).

We believe that Christians are called to obey God’s word and live a holy life, bear the fruits of the Holy Spirit, and glorify Jesus Christ. (Reference: James 1:22-25, Luke 8:15, 2 Timothy 2:19, Hebrews 12:14, 1 Peter 1:15-16, Galatians 5:22-24, 1 John 2:6).
