OUR BELIEFS

1. We believe that the Bible (i.e. 39 Old Testament books and 27 New Testament books) is a detailed, perfect, and finished revelation given to a man by God.

2. We believe that every human being is in a state of sin as a result of his or her fall and that, as a consequence, he or she is a subject to death.

3. We believe in the justification of the sinner only by grace through faith, thanks to the redemptive sacrifice of the cross of Jesus Christ.

4. We believe in one God, revealed to man in three individual persons, as Father, Son of God – Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit.

5. We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, his incarnation, his work of reconciliation on the cross, his resurrection, his ascension, his intercession with the Father, his reign and his second coming in glory.

6. We believe in the work of Holy Spirit in the process of the birth and sanctification of the sinner.

7. We believe in the experience of baptism in Holy Spirit, given to every believer to live in the anointing and power of God.

8. We believe in supernatural works of God in His Church today, just as he acted in the New Testament times.

9. We believe in the immortality of the spirit of man, the resurrection of the flesh, the judgment of the Lord over the world, the eternal happiness of the righteous and the eternal condemnation of the unjust.

10. We believe that there is one indivisible and universal Church of Jesus Christ, His body, made up of all Christians who, by personal faith, have accepted the Savior’s redemptive death on the cross, the sacrifice for their sins, turned away from their iniquities, and experienced a new birth from Holy Spirit.

11. We believe that the Lord Jesus himself is the only head of His Church.

12. We believe that every church, or local assembly of Christians, is the only biblical form of manifestation of the universal Church of Jesus Christ; every church is, according to the teachings of the New Testament, fully autonomous in all its internal and external affairs. Jesus, as the Head of the Church, acts in the local church by giving every gift of grace for the common benefit and by establishing the services of an apostle, prophet, evangelist, shepherd and teacher for the growth and development of the church. The development and management of the local church is the responsibility of the pastor and the elders who support him.

13. We profess the New Testament doctrine of the universal priesthood of believers.

14. We believe that the Lord Jesus instituted two ordinances in His Church: baptism in water and the Lord’s supper.
