Our belief

God:

We Believe there is only one true God in three person as the Father, Son, and Holy spirit. in the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth, through his mighty power. God continues to sustain His creation, operating within history to fulfill His purposes for our existence which is Fellowship.

The Bible:

The sole basis of our belief is the Bible. Both the Old and New Testaments are entirety originated with God. We hold that the Scriptures speaks with the authority of God; they are the unique, full, and final authority on all matters of faith, practice, and Doctrines.

Jesus Christ:

Jesus Christ, the eternal second person of the Trinity, was fully united with a human nature by a miraculous conception and virgin birth. He lived in perfect obedience to the Father, voluntarily paid the price for the sins of humanity by dying on the cross as the substitute, and satisfied divine justice, bringing salvation to all that trust in Him alone. After His physical death, Jesus Christ rose from the dead and ascended into heaven to sit at the right hand of the God as the only intercessor between God and humans. He promises to return to earth, to fulfill history and the eternal plan of God.

Salvation:

The salvation of humanity is completely a work of God’s free grace through Jesus Christ; it is not in any way the result of human works or goodness. Each person can receive salvation by repent, believe, and have faith. God’s Word assures individuals that He will continue His saving work in them forever.

Holy Spirit:

Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. Sent by the Father and the Son, the Holy Spirit applies Christ’s saving work by enlightening the minds of sinners to their need to be saved. Holy Spirit renews and indwells each believer upon salvation, becoming their source of assurance, strength, wisdom, and gifting for building up the church. Holy Spirit guides believers in understanding and applying the Bible. Appropriated by faith, His power and control empower believers to lead a life of Christ-like character and bear fruit for the Father’s glory.

Local Church:

All who acknowledge Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior are united with Him as members of His body. The Scripture commands believers to gather for worship, prayer, fellowship, and the teaching of the Word; to observe Baptism and Communion as established by Jesus Christ; to offer service to the body through development and use of talents, gifts, and outreach to the world. The local expression of the church is wherever God’s people meet regularly in obedience to this command. Cared for and led by Elders and lea
