Scripture – The Holy Bible
We believe the Scriptures, both Old & New Testaments is fully, uniquely and supernaturally the inspired Word of God. It is from his breath i.e. breathed out by God (see 2 Timothy 3:16). It is the complete revelation of his will for the salvation of man and is infallible and without errors in its original form. It is sufficient and full of authority for all of Christian faith, doctrine and life.
We believe there is one and only one true living God. He is the creator and sustainer of everyone and everything (Gen 1:1, Is 45:18, 1 Cor 8:6). He is transcendent, eternal (Ps 90:1-2, John 5:26), and sovereign ruler of heaven and earth (Gen 50:20, Revelation 4:11). He is all-powerful, infinite, all-knowing, most holy (Is 6), most wise, most loving, just and good (1 John 4:16, Psalm 34:8, 100:5). He is perfect spirit without body (John 4:24), parts, or passions, immutable, incomprehensible (James 1:17) and is worthy of all glory, honour and praise, from everlasting to everlasting (Rev 4).
And this one and only one true living God eternally co-exists in three persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; John 14:26; 2 Corinthians 13:14). The three persons of the Trinity have distinct roles but exist in perfect unity.
We believe Jesus is the promised Messiah and was conceived in Mary by the power of the Holy Spirit (Luke 1: 26-38). He is the Son of God (John 1) eternally begotten of the Father and shares the same nature with him as God (John 1). He is fully man and fully God and reveals the Father (John 14:9). He was sent by the Father to save the world from his wrath and judgement. He lived a perfect life without sin and offered this life as an atoning substitutionary sacrifice for the world (John 3:16, Rom 3:23-26). His death on the cross bared everyone’s sin and his blood paid the ransom for them (Ep 1:7). After his death, he rose again and so, forever he finished what he came for ending the sting of death, hell and judgement for those who believe in his death and resurrection and confess him as Lord (Rom 10, 1 Cor 15). After his resurrection, he ascended into heaven (Acts 1:10) and now is seated at the right hand of the Father (Hebrews 1:3) interceding for his people until he returns again(Romans 8:34, Rev 22:20).
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person and God, just like the Father and the Son, he shares with them the same nature and attributes (Matthew 28:19). He is sent by the Father (John 14:26) and the Son (John 15:26) and is called the Parakeltos (John 16). He was promised by Jesus (Acts 1:8) to be a helper, mediator, intercessor, advocate, supporter, comforter, and counsellor to those whom he will regenerate and seal them until they receive the promised inheritance (John 3, Ephesians 1:13-14). His main role and function is to regenerate, witness Jesus and indwell in believers to convict them of sin, to illuminate the Bible and to shape them to be more like Jesus. Holy Spirit also empowers believers with spiritual gifts to be used to build (edify) the church in love(1 Cor 12 -14).
Human (Man & Woman)
We believe that humans are created beings. Created by God in his image and likeness and are the jewel of creation (Gen 1:26-27). Image bearers imply that they are to represent, reflect and mirror God in their rule of the rest of creation, in their fellowship with the creator and creation, and in their character. Man and Woman were created for a complementary relationship However, the fall of Genesis 3 under the temptation of the Satan and their personal choice to reject God and his word led to a great disaster. Man and woman fell short of God’s glory, the image got tainted, relationships got affected and all of the creation inherited sin and God’s curse, as it says in Romans 8, the whole creation has been groaning. However, God in his kindness sent his Son to reconcile this image and purpose. He became man and fulfilled all that was required of mankind. He became the perfect imago dei and it is in him that now mankind has the opportunity to be restored to God’s original plan and desire. It is in him that one day we all who believe will become perfect and complete (1 Cor 13:10).
We believe that the atoning death of Jesus Christ, and His resurrection, provide the only ground of justification and salvation for all who believe and that only such as receive Jesus Christ by personal faith are born of the Holy Spirit, and thus, become children of God. Salvation is God’s gift that he bestows on whom he predestines and received by grace alone through faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8; Titus 3:5).
We believe the church (ekklesia) in the New Testament refers to a gathering. It is a gathering of Christians, who belong to God and are in Christ in a particular place, for example, the church in Jerusalem (Acts 11:22). This gathering is beautiful and made up of diverse people and gives us a picture of the one universal church. So, when one becomes a Christian, he or she automatically becomes a member of the universal church, which comprises all Christian believers from all times and all places including the future in heaven. And so yes, everyone who believes in the Lord Jesus as his Saviour belongs to the universal heavenly church, but at the same time, they should be active members of the local gathering of God’s people in a particular space & time i.e. the local church. This is because the local church/gathering is the right representation of the one universal church. The local displays and reminds the universal.
Second, the Church is the body of Christ. When one believes in Jesus, he or she becomes a member or part of Jesus’ body and each other (1 Cor 12:27, Eph 1: 22-23, 5:23). Church is also God’s family and God’s temple i.e. God is present in our gathering (Eph : 2:19-22, 1 Peter 2:4-5)
As protestant churches, there are two ordinances mandated for the church by the Lord Jesus and that is baptism and Lord’s supper. We believe in practising baptism by immersion upon profession of faith, understanding this to be the teaching of the New Testament, yet at the same time shall be free to admit into fellowship any Christian believer of godly walk and conversation who holds the faith and doctrine as herein set forth. We believe that the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper should be observed regularly, and shall be presided over by the Pastor or by any duly authorized person.
End Times & Future
We believe that at the end of the ages the Lord Jesus Christ will return in his glory (Acts 1:11; 1 Corinthians 4:5; Revelation 22:20). God will raise the dead again and judge the world in righteousness through Jesus Christ our Lord (1 Corinthians 15:52; Hebrews 9:27). The wicked (those who rejected Jesus Christ) will be sent to eternal punishment in hell, and the righteous (those who put their trust in Jesus Christ) will have eternal life in the New Heavens and New Earth (John 3:36; 5:28-29; Acts 24:15; Revelation 20:15). In the New Creation, there will be no sin, sickness, pain, or death (Isaiah 65:17; Revelation 21:1, 4, 27).
