Our Faith

Below listed are some of the key points from our Statement of Faith:

  • God – we believe that there is only one true living God, the creator of all things who is revealed to us in the New and Old Testament as three persons Father, Son and Holy Spirit, equal but with distinct functions within the Godhead (For the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Matt 3:16 – 17 and Matt 28:19 are supporting verses, John 1:1 is for Father and Son)
  • God the Father – we believe that the God the Father is the first person of the Godhead who created the heaven and earth and all other creatures
  • God the Son – we believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of virgin Mary, lived a perfect and sinless life on the earth, shed His blood and was crucified on the cross to atone for our sins and buried, then resurrected from the dead, ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father and will come back to earth in power and glory to judge the living and the dead
  • God the Holy Spirit – we believe in present ministry of the Holy Spirit who draws sinners to Christ, convicts us of sin and gives us new life in Christ, indwelling and empowering us to live godly life
  • Holy Bible – We believe that the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired, the infallible and authoritative word of God which is supreme and sufficient for all matters of faith and life practices (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21; John 10:35)
  • The Church – We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ and that the true Church composed of all such persons who, through saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been renewed by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the Church universal. The Church is representative of the Body of Christ, of which He is the Head
  • Great Commission – We believe that God desires us to reach all with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Hence we believe the great commission to evangelize and to disciple the lost both here in our community and all around the world. This includes missionary work to extend Christian love to the needy around the world. We seek to be and make disciples who not only proclaim the Lord Jesus Christ but also display Him (Matthew 18:19-20; Mark 16:15-16)
