declaration of faith

1. THE BIBLE

We believe in the Holy Bible, which we receive as the only true Word of God revealed and inspired without error by His Holy Spirit, to different men of faith, in different circumstances; Ia which testifies to the love of God incarnated in Jesus Christ his Son. We accept only the Holy Scriptures of the Old Testament and the New Testament as our sole and sufficient standard of Christian faith and practice. 2 Tim.3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12; Col 3:16; 1 Peter 1:24-25.

2. GOD

We believe in God, creator of all, holy, sovereign, eternal, who exists in three persons who are the same essence – God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, according to the declaration of the Lord Jesus in the Gospel of Saint Matthew 28:19 and affirmed by the apostle Paul in 2 Cor. 13:14 (see Ch. 14 of San Juan).

3. CHRIST

We believe in Jesus Christ, truly God and truly man, and we recognize and accept him as our Lord and Savior, who was born of the virgin Mary, sinless life, died on the cross in atonement for our sins to give us the precious gift of salvation. We believe in his resurrection, through which Jesus proclaims himself Lord, who definitively triumphs over death and sin; triumphal ascension, mediatorial ministry, and bodily return. Matthew 1:18-25; John 1:1; Acts 1:1, 2:21; Rom. 10:13; Rom.10:9; I Timothy 1:15; 1 Peter 1:17-21; 1 John 1:5-7.

4. THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe in the absolute deity and personality of the Holy Spirit who convicts of sin, justice and judgment; who regenerates, sanctifies, enlightens, comforts and dwells in those who believe and receive Christ (John 1:12; 14:16-26; 15:26; 16: 7-15).

  5. SATAN

We believe that Satan exists as an evil personality, and who is the originator of sin, and the enemy of God and man (Job 1:6; 2:1-2; Luke 13:16).

6. MAN

We believe that man was divinely created in the image of God, that he sinned and became guilty before God, resulting in total depravity and consequently incurred physical and spiritual death (Romans 1:18-32;
2:1-6; Galatians 3:22; Genesis 12:26).

7. SALVATION

We believe that salvation is a gift of God, for which Christ voluntarily suffered a vicarious and atoning death, and that justification is by faith alone in the sacrifice and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:5-9; Matthew 18 :11; 1John 4:12; Acts 15:11; Romans 3:21; Hebrews 9:13-15).

8. ORDINANCES

We believe that there are only two ordinances for the church according to New Testament teaching and they are as follows.
a) Baptism - which is by the believer's immersion in water and thereby obeying Christ's command and establishing an identification with Christ in his death (Acts 8:36-39; John 3:22; Matthew 28:19, 3 :5-6).
b) The Lord's Supper – which is the memorable act in which believers partake of the elements that are bread and wine, which symbolize the body and blood of the Lord shed on Calvary (1 Corinthians 11:23-29 ; Luke 22:14-20).
