The sixty six books of the Holy Bible, in their original form, are divinely inspired and they constitute a standard for life and teaching of the Church.
The One True God who has revealed himself in the Holy Bible; the One God is One divine Godhead of Three Persons—the Father, The Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.
The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God; born of virgin Mary, he lived a sinless life to offer his life as a ransom for sinful humanity destined for eternal destruction; he died, was buried, and rose again from the dead to be exalted above every other name and power as King of kings and Lord of lords; there is no other name by which humankind may be saved from their sins.
Salvation is a free gift of God available to anyone who, in repentance, places his/her trust in the atonement accomplished by the risen Saviour Jesus Christ. Salvation is the offer of eternal life in Jesus Christ; it includes forgiveness of sins, regeneration by the Holy Spirit, adoption into the family of God, inclusion in the “Israel” of God, deliverance from the effects of sin, and a commission to follow Jesus Christ in the power of His indwelling Spirit.
The Church of Jesus Christ is the universal fellowship of Jesus Christ’s followers—forgiven, regenerated people who live in active fellowship with God through Christ. In its local expression, it is the family of Christians who are committed to each other; they meet frequently for worship, fellowship, and service.
The Church is called to participate in God’s Mission.
The primary calling of the Church is to glorify God in praise, worship, and through the display of God’s reign in their lives.
The members of the Church are called to serve one another using manifold gifts of the Spirit, speaking the truth in love, till all reach unity of faith and spiritual maturity.
They are also called to participate in God’s mission to save the world from sin, decay, and suffering through the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ and through service; God desires that no one should perish in unbelief. Jesus promised to supernaturally empower each of his followers with the baptism of the Holy Spirit to fulfill God’s mission.
Baptism in water, by immersion, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, is an ordinance established by the Lord Jesus for all who believe in Him. Those who believe in Christ and are baptized are born-again (born of water and the Spirit) as God’s children. They thus become members of God’s Church.
The Eucharist (Lord’s Table) consisting of the elements – unleavened bread and red wine – is an ordinance that commemorates the suffering and death of Jesus Christ; it is a symbol of the Christian’s deep communion with His Master, a participation in the body and blood of Jesus Christ. The single loaf of bread demonstrates the unity of the body of Christ, the Church (1 Cor 10:17); its unleavened state teaches us that the church should be free from sin (1 Cor 5:6-8).
The Lord Jesus Christ promised to come back to his apostles (John 14:3) before they finished fleeing from all the cities of Judea (Matthew 10:23). Accordingly, the apostles and the early church expected the Second Coming of the Lord in their lifetime (Matthew 16:27,28; 24:34; John 21: 22-23).
The blessed hope of Christians is that they will share the glory of Jesus Christ. They will be raised from the dead and transformed to inherit immortal, glorious bodies to be with the Lord forever.
The Final Judgment: Although God executes judgment at all times, He will judge all humanity—both dead and alive.
