What We Believe

We Believe …

  1. The entire Bible (Genesis to Revelation) is the only reference to support our faith, since it is inspired and preserved by God without error or unknown modification [2 Timothy 3:16].
  2. In one God (Adonai Elohim Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh [Exodus 3:14]) whose nature and direct work are revealed through three distinct persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit [Matthew 28:19]. All equal in essence, substance, and glory.
  3. We believe in the deity of Christ [Titus 2:13], [Philippians 2:5-8], [Hebrews 1:8], [John 1:3], [Colossians 1:16-17], [Mark 14:61-62], [Daniel 7:13-14], [John 9:38], [Matthew 28:9], [1 Thessalonians 3:11], in His virgin birth [Matthew 1:18-25], [Isaiah 7:14], in His sinless life [Hebrews 7:27], [1 Peter 1:18–19], [Colossians 1:20].
  4. Jesus Christ the only begotten Son of God is of the same character and substance of the Father [Hebrews 1:3]. Begotten not created, emanated from the Father and coexisted eternally, timelessly with Him without interruption [Proverbs 8:30].
  5. The Holy Spirit emanated from, and coexist eternally, with the Father, is the Spirit of Truth [Hebrews 9:14, Acts 5:3-4]
  6. The Son and the Holy Spirit are spiritual activities of the Father [Hebrews 1:1-5]. Because these spiritual activities have revealed themselves to us as having their independent will, and thinking, and have spoken to us distinctively, they are therefore personified as distinct persons. The Bible clearly shows that the Father is God in [Phil. 1:2, 1 Corinthians 8:6]; and clearly shows that the Son is God in  [John 1:1-14, Col. 2:9, Hebrews 1:3, Isaiah 9:6, John 14:1John 1:18, John 14:9-14, Micah 5:2, 2 Peter 3:18, 1 Corinthians 1:24, John 8:58, John 20:28John 8:24] which is linked to [Exodus 3:14]; and clearly shows that the Holy Spirit is God in [Acts 5:3-4].
  7. Jesus Christ or Emmanuel (meaning God is with us), born of the Virgin Mary through the grace of the Holy Spirit [Isaiah 7:14] and [Matthew 1:18-25], is the Messiah the Son of God [Hebrews 1:1-9 and Luke 3:22], taking the image of a man [1 TIMOTHY 3:16], who came to earth to save the world [John 3:17, Matthew 1:21, and John 8:12].
  8. Jesus Christ was crucified and died on the cross [John 19:16-30], and shed His blood for our sins [John 19:31-37].
  9. Salvation is granted by believing and confessing that Jesus Christ is Lord and that God raised him from the dead [Rom 10:9-13 and Acts 4:10-12].
  10. We believe that Jesus rose from the dead [John 20:1-20] and will come again glorified fully visible by everyone in the very near future [Mark 14:62 and Matthew 24:29-31].
  11. Eternal life and resurrection are given to all those who observe and believe in the Son of God [John 6:35-59 and John 11:25-27].
  12. Forgiveness of sins is achieved by believing in Jesus Christ as the saviour [John 8:24].
  13. Eternal life is the gift of the creator if one believes and trusts in Jesus Christ [Romans 6:23].
  14. All those who believed in Christ and are sleeping (dead) will be resurrected, and those who remain will change into immortals [1 Cor 15:50-56] and both will be summoned into Heaven by Jesus Christ. Currently, Christians believing in Jesus Christ are in a process of a slow transformation into Christ likeness as indicated in [1 John 3:2]. However final and complete transformation into immortals would occur in a blink of an eye, at the last trump.
  15. This immortality and resurrection are granted as a gift of life by just believing in the Son of God Jesus Christ [1 Cor 15:57-58].
  16. The Baptism as a symbol of receiving the cleansing from sin that Jesus had initiated when his blood was shed on the cross [Matthew 28:16-20 and Mark 16:16]. It is also a symbol of spiritual birth (born of the Spirit) and a declaration of our faith in the complete salvation of the Son of God.
  17. The Communion with Christ through taking the two symbols: Unleavened Bread and Vine Fruit Juice, representing Jesus’ Body and His Blood through the grace of the Holy Spirit [Matthew 26:26-29]. It is also a remembrance of what Jesus Christ has done to deliver us from sin, His death and victorious resurrection. Communion is also the sign of confirmation that those who put their trust in Christ will have everlasting life through the Son of God [John 6:35-59].
  18. The Church (the Body of Christ) is the congregation of all believers in Jesus’ salvation, his crucifixion, death, resurrection, and return. It is not the property of a sect or denomination, and thus not limited to one group [Luke 9:49-50], however it should always follow the teaching of Jesus Christ, because it was obtained with God’s own blood [Acts 20:28]. This congregation shall be victorious and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it [Matthew 16:18]. Every congregation claiming infallibility, uniqueness, and righteousness, placing itself as the only mediating organisation between God and believers [1 Timothy 2:5], or even getting involved with politics, is in need of restructuring and spiritual help [Romans 3:23].
  19. After the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the understanding of Israel to be God’s own people has shifted or changed to indicate the believers in Jesus’ salvation. Therefore Christians are the new Israel and the congregation of all believers in Jesus’ salvation is the spiritual Israel [Hebrews 8:1-13]. The believers in Jesus’ salvation are the new spiritual nation of God without differentiation between Jews and Gentiles [Romans 15:8-21, Matthew 21:43 and Romans 9:27]. The promises that God made to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob where fulfilled in Jesus Christ, therefore everyone who believes in Jesus Christ’s salvation (Jews and Gentiles) becomes a spiritual Israelite. This should not be understood as replacement theology. Rather as two covenants with the new testament as a continuation of the old testament.
  20. We never judge people, because this is not our mission, and because there is one and only Judge the Lord of our salvation Jesus Christ [2 Timothy 4:1].
