Our Statement of Faith

We uphold the sovereignty of God who is the Creator, Sustainer and Redeemer of the world. We believe that He has the supreme authority over all.

We believe in one true God who exists eternally in three distinct personalities, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Trinity).

God the Father is the One who, out of love, sent His only begotten Son into the world to reconcile humanity to Himself.

God the Son, Jesus Christ, entered this world through virgin birth and was without sin. By being the atoning sacrifice on the cross on our behalf (substitution), He has taken away our sins, and by being resurrected, He has conquered sin and death.  We believe faith in Jesus Christ to be the only way of salvation (John 14:6).

God the Spirit is the Counselor that Jesus promised in John 14:26, which says, “But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”  It is through Him that we are convicted of sin and also our need for Jesus Christ. He regenerates our heart so that we are able to understand the gospel message and accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. He is also responsible for sanctifying us to the likeness of the Son.

Although Man was created in the image of God, due to his rebellion and sin, he became alienated from God. It is only through Christ that man can be reconciled to God and be part of Christ’s Church & God’s eternal kingdom.

The Church is the Body of Christ, who is given the task of going out to all nations to make disciples, to baptize and to teach them to live a life of obedience to God and to bring glory to Him. The church is to be the personification of God’s truth in our world, especially His commands on loving God and loving our neighbors.

In the church, there are two sacraments. They are baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptism is a public display of one’s inner faith in Jesus Christ, and it is through baptism that one is introduced into a new covenant family of God. The modes of baptism can vary from sprinkling of water to immersion. What is significant is that one is leaving behind his or her old self or life, and starting a new life in Christ as a new creation. The Lord’s Supper is a sacrament that our Lord Jesus Christ has patterned for His church to follow. By breaking bread, we remember the physical suffering Jesus had to endure to obey God’s will on the cross. By sharing the cup (wine), we remember the new covenant that is established through Jesus’ blood.

We believe that apart from Jesus Christ, the next best gift or revelation that God has given to humanity is His holy and living Word, the Bible.  We believe God’s Word to be inspired by the Holy Spirit; thus inerrant and infallible in its original autograph.  Therefore it is “useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17).”
