What We Believe

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God and contains one harmonious and sufficiently complete system of doctrine. We believe in the full inspiration of Word of God. We hold the Word of God to be the only authority in  all matters and assert that no doctrine can be true or essential if it does not find a place in this Word.


The Father

We believe in God, the Father Almighty, the Author and Creator of all things. The Old Testament reveals God in diverse manners, by manifesting His nature, character, and dominions. The Gospels in the New Testament give us knowledge of God the "Father" or "My Father," showing the relationship of God to Jesus as Father, or representing Him as the Father in the Godhead , and  Jesus himself that son ( St.John 15:8;14;20). Jesus also gives God the distinction "Fatherhood" to all believers when He explains God in the light of "Your Father in Heaven: (St. Matthew 6:8)

 

 


The Son

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the second person in the Godhead of the Trinity. We believe that Jesus was and is eternal in His person and nature as the Son of God who was with God in the beginning of creation(St. John 1:1). We believe that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin called Mary according to the Scripture ( St. Matthew 1:18), thus given rise to our fundamental belief in the Virgin Birth and to all of the miraculous events surrounding the phenomenon (St. Matthew 1:18-25). We believe that Jesus Christ became the "suffering servant" to man; this suffering servant came seeking to redeem man from sin and to reconcile him back to God, his Father (Roman 5:10).  We believe that Jesus Christ is standing now as mediator between God and man (1 Timothy 2:5)


The Holy Ghost

We believe the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity: proceeds from the Father and the Son: is of the same substance equal to power and glory; and is together with the Father and the Son, to be believed in, obeyed, and worshiped.  The Holy Ghost is a gift to be believed in obeyed, and worshiped. The Holy Ghost is a gift bestowed upon the believer for the purpose of equipping and  empowering the believer, making him a more effective witness for service in the world He teaches and guides one into all truth ( John 16:13; Acts 1:8; 8:39)

 

 


Man

We believe that man was created holy by God, composed of body and Soul. We believe that man, by nature, is sinful and unholy. Being born in sin, he needs to be born again, sanctified and cleansed from all sins by the blood of Jesus. We believe that man is saved by confessing and forsaking his sins, and believing on the lord Jesus Christ and that having become a child of God. by being born again and  adopted into the family  of God, he may and should, claim the inheritance of the sons of God  namely the baptism of the Holy Ghost


Sin

Sin, the Bible teaching, began in the angelic world (Ezekiel 28:11-19; Isaiah 14:12-20), and is transmitted into the blood of the human race through disobedience and deception motivated  by unbelief ( 1 Timothy 2:14). Adam's sin,  committed by eating of the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil,carried with it permanent pollution or depraved human nature to all his descendants. This is called  "original sin." Sin can now be defined as a transgression against God and a lack of conforming to the will of God. We therefore. conclude that man by nature is sinful and that he has fallen from glorious and righteous state from which he was created,  and has become unrighteous and unholy. Man, therefore,must be restored to his state of holiness from which he has fallen by being born again (st. john 3:7)

 

 


Salvation

Salvation deals with the application of the work of redemption to the sinner with his restoration to divine favor and communion with God. This redemptive operation of the Holy Ghost upon sinners is brought  about by repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ  which brings conversion, faith, justification, regeneration, sanctification, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost, Repentance is the work of God, which results in a change of mind in respect to man's relationship to God (st.. Matthew 3:1-2;4:17;Acts 20: 21). faith is a certain conviction wrought  in the heart by the Holy Spirit, as  to the truth of the Gospel and a heart trust in the promises of God in Christ (Romans 1: 17; 3:28)
