What We Believe

We believe that the entire Scripture, both Old and New Testament are written by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit – II Timothy. 3:16-17. All the Christian teachings and the Christian attitude of the Children of God are such as are established in the Holy Bible – II Timothy. 3:10-15; II Peter 1:21; John 17:17; Psalm. 119:105.

As revealed unto us by the Bible, we believe that there is only one God, Who is the Creator of both visible and invisible creatures -Genesis. 1:1; Psalm. 86:9-10; Isaiah. 43:10-11; John 1:1-3. Only God will be in existence forever. Ezekiel 3:14; in God every creature receives life -John 5:26.

We believe that He is the Son of God; Who took away our sins, and the Savior of the world. We also believe that Jesus is God and was born by Mary the Virgin. He is God revealed in the flesh. Through Him all things were created. John 1:1-14; John 14:9; Matthew. 1:18-25, Isaiah 9:6; Isaiah 53:5-6. We believe in His death on the Cross, and resurrection, by which He brought redemption – Isaiah. 53:4-10; I Peter. 2:24; John 10:11; Galatians. 3:13, Matthew. 20:28; 
I Corinthians. 15:3; Romans 4:25; II Corinthians  5:14; Hebrews 2:9; Hebrews 9:26.

The Holy Spirit is the third Person in the TRINITY. He has the same power, the same glory with God the Father and God the Son – John 14:16-17; John 15:26; Matthew. 3:16; Acts 13:24. He is one with Father and the Son who is to be worshiped and served. Three Persons that become one are the source of blessings to all the living creatures in Heaven and on earth – Matthew. 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14; I John 1:5-7. The Holy Spirit has a great work to perform. He Teaches, He Speaks to men, and bears witness in us – Acts 16:6-7; He performs the work of regeneration for man- John 3:5-6; He also performs the work of Sanctification in the born again souls until they are fully sanctified – John 16:8; Ephesians 1:17-19; II Thessalonians 2:13; I Corinthians 6:11. This same Holy Spirit endows believers with gifts they can use – I Corinthians 12:7; He empowers one in the Lord. Acts 1:8.

We believe that there is a devil, who seeks the down fall of every man. He brought sickness, sin and death into the world. Genesis. 3:1-16. He seeks the destruction of those who exercise their faith in the Lord Jesus. Matthew. 4:1-11; James 4:7; I Peter 5:8. The devil has several unclean spirits over whom he governs – Matthew. 12:24. A time would soon come when he shall be thrown into the pit and chained for one thousand years- Revelation. 20:7-9. After this, he will be put into the lake of fire where he will remain suffering together with his followers for ever and ever. Revelation. 20:10

This is God’s grace whereby we are cleansed from our sins by which we are able to stand before God as though we have never sinned. Acts 13:39; Romans 3:25-26; Romans 5:1; I Corinthians 6:11; Galatians. 3:24; John 1:12-13; 3:3; II Corinthians 5:9; Titus 3:5; I Peter 1:23; Acts 10:43; John 3:3,5.

Sanctification is another grace of God by which our souls are progressively and completely cleansed. This is the second accomplishment of the grace which through our faith in the Blood of Jesus Christ is wrought after we have been justified and free from our sins or regenerated – John 17:15-17; I Thessalonians 4:3; Hebrews. 2:11; 12:14; 13:12; I John 1:7; Luke 1:74, 75; II Corinthians. 7:1; I Peter 1:16; Ephesians. 5:25-27; I Thessalonians. 5:23-24; II Thessalonians. 2:13.

We believe that water baptism is by immersion. We do not baptize infants as they are not at the age of accountability. Our members are baptized after conversion and undergoing believers and water baptism classes and are thereafter fully part of our fellowship – Acts 2:24.

Healing without medicine is Biblical – Matthew 4:23; Psalm. 103:3; Sickness is caused because of the fall of man. The force behind this is Satan – Job 2:1-9; Luke 13:15; Acts 10:38. But JESUS came to destroy the works of the devil – I John 3:8. Christ purchased our soul from the curse of sin. He bore our infirmities and carried our sorrow – Matthew. 8:15-17. By His stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:4-5; Gal. 3:13; I Peter 2:24.

We experience daily the resurrection of the Spirit, all the born-again souls who are passed from death to life – Ephesians. 6:14; Romans 6:11; John 5:20. As this body is dissolved, immediately we are entering into our Heavenly Home or house not made with hands eternal in the Heavens – I Corinthians5:1-8.There is resurrection of the Body. Jesus taught us plainly that the buried body will be raised up from the tomb at the last day Job 5:28-29.

The Second coming of Jesus Christ will be in physical form and will be visible to all in like manner as He was seen ascending up to heavens – Acts 1:9-11; John 14:3. His return will be in two stages: (A). Christ’s return in the sky – The Saints or Bride of Christ will be raptured to meet Christ in the sky – I Thessalonians. 4:15-17; I Corinthians. 15:51-52; Matthew. 24:40-44; Matthew 25:10 (B). His return to the earth – He will return to the earth to judge the sinners and the ungodly – Revelation. 19:19-21; II Thessalonians 1:7-10; Jude 14-15; Zechariah. 14:3-4.

We believe that the first day of the week called Sunday is a special day which the believers should separate as the Lord’s day during which time are to gather to worship – Acts 20:7; 1Corinthians. 16:2; Revelation 1:10. The Lord resurrected on the first day of the week – Mark 16:9; Ezekiel. 31:12-14.
