“Our mission is to EVANGELIZE the world beginning from our community.
We will TEACH the whole counsel of God through His Word.
We will NURTURE people to grow in the knowledge of God in an atmosphere of love, grace, and worship so they can SERVE God and humanity.”
One true and Living God, infinite, eternal and unchangeable, in three Persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and the creation of all things by God for His own wise purpose.
The Holy Scriptures as the Word of God given by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God; His virgin birth; His life and humanity; the truth of His teaching; the perfect sacrifice for the sin of the world offered once and for all in His death on the Cross; His bodily resurrection from the dead; His ascension into Heaven; His present ministry of intercession and His coming again in power and glory.
Fall of Man
The fall of man and consequent sinfulness, guilt and condemnation of all men. The free and perfect justification of all who believe in our Lord Jesus Christ and their regeneration by the power of the Holy Spirit into adoption as children of God.
Repentance is an evangelical grace, wherein a person being, by the Holy Spirit, made sensible of the manifold evil of his sin, humbles himself because of it with godly sorrow and experiences a detestation of sin, abhorrence of it with a purpose and endeavor to walk before God so as to please Him in all things.
Regeneration is a change of heart, wrought by the Holy Spirit, quickening the dead in trespasses and sins, enlightening their minds spiritually to understanding the Word of God and renewing their whole nature, so that they love and practice holiness. It is a work of God’s free and special grace alone.
Saving faith is the belief, on God’s authority, of whatsoever is revealed in His Word concerning Christ; accepting and resting upon Him alone for justification and eternal life. It is wrought in the heart by the Holy Spirit, is accompanied by all other saving graces, and leads to a life of holiness.
The ordinance of believers’ baptism by total immersion in water shall be observed as and when required, in obedience to the Lord’s command. It shall be administered only to those who have confessed their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord, having successfully completed such course of studies in Christian teaching and practice as may be prescribed from time to time by the Pastor and are accordingly regarded as believers.
The Lord's Supper
The Ordinance of the Lord’s Supper shall be observed as often as possible during worship service. Only persons who are qualified to be received into membership of the church in accordance with Article 5 clause 1 of the Church Constitution may participate in the Lord’s Supper.
The resurrection of the body and the final judgment of all men; the eternal perfection and blessedness of the saved and the eternal punishment of the lost.
God has appointed a day, wherein He will judge the world by Jesus Christ, when everyone shall receive according to his deeds; the righteous, into everlasting life, the wicked shall go into everlasting punishment.
The Lord's Day
The Lord’s Day as Christian institution for regular observation, should be employed in exercises of worship and spiritual devotion, both public and private, and in rest from employments and amusements, works of necessity and mercy only exempted.
