Statement of Faith

The Bible is the inspired revelation of God. It is the anchor of faith of mankind. The Bible is the basic creed of the church and the only standard of faith for the believer. The Eternal, True and Holy Trinity is one God existing in three personalities - Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.

Man was created in the likeness of God. Adam transgressed God's commandment and caused the fall of man. Only Jesus Christ, the Son of God can restore the fallen man to his original, God intended, state. Man should approach God with true repentance for sins and faith in the atoning death of Jesus Christ. We are justified by faith and our guilt is pardoned by the shed Blood of Jesus Christ. A person is born again through the Holy Spirit and the Word of God. In order to become one in Christ, a believer should be baptized in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit by full immersion in water and thus become part-takers of the burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The believer should keep himself pure from sin, false doctrines and all kinds of worship contrary to the Bible.

To commemmorate the death of Jesus Christ for us, the believer should celebrate the Lord's Supper regularly until His return. The believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit. The initial sign of speaking in tongues follows the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. Since temporal healing is included in the Sacrifice on the cross by Christ for atonement of sins, a believer should take it as a right and privilege to get bodily healing by prayer and faith. The believer is sanctified by the Blood of Jesus, by the Word of God and by the Holy Spirit.

Jesus is coming soon in the air and that the Bride will be caught up when Jesus comes. There is to be a great tribulation on the earth when Anti-Christ will be in his power soon after the coming of Christ in the air, and the Rapture of the Bride. At the end of the tribulation Jesus will come to the earth in all His glory with His saints and establish His own kingdom of Righteousness for a thousand years. After the Millennium satan and his hosts will be cast for ever into the lake of fire and there will be judgment before the Great White Throne for all the wicked who also will meet the The Bible is the inspired revelation of God. It is the anchor of faith of mankind. The Bible is the basic creed of the church and the only standard of faith for the believer.
