» We believe there is only one GOD (Deuteronomy 6:4, 1 Kings 8:60, Isaiah 44:6, Isaiah 45:5-7)

» We believe in The Trinity – three equal yet distinctive Persons in The One holy, righteous and loving GOD (Matthew 3:16-17, Matthew 28:19, 1 Peter 1:2):

  1. GOD The FATHER (Hosea 1:10, Matthew 6:9, Romans 8:15-17, 2 Corinthians 6:18, Colossians 1:3), The First PERSON of The Trinity is:
    1. Self-Existent having neither beginning of days or end of life (Exodus 3:13-15, Psalm 90:1-2, Psalm 102:25-26, Jeremiah 10:1-10)
    2. A GOD of Truth (Psalm 31:5, Isaiah 65:16, Hebrews 6:18, Titus 1:2)
    3. Merciful or compassionate, gracious, patient, abounding in lovingkindness and truth (Exodus 34:6, Psalm 86:15, Psalm 108:4, Romans 2:4, 2 Peter 3:8-9)
    4. Eternal (Psalm 93:2, Deuteronomy 33:27, Isaiah 40:28, Isaiah 48:12, Isaiah 57:15)
    5. All-powerful (Job 9:12, Job 11:10, Job chapters 40 and 41, Job 42:1-2, Matthew 19:26, Luke 1:37)
    6. All-knowing (Job 11:11, Job 39:1-30, Psalm 139:1-6)

    8. The Creator of all (Genesis 1:1, Job 38:1-41, Psalm 102:25, Nehemiah 9:6-7, Isaiah 42:5, Acts 17:24-26, Hebrews 11:3)
  2. GOD The SON (John 20:28-29, Titus 2:13, 1 John 5:20), The Second PERSON of The Trinity is:
    1. Fully GOD and fully man (Isaiah 9:6, Matthew 1:21-23, John 1:1, John 1:14, John 20:28-29) by taking upon HIMSELF human form (Philippians 2:5-8, Hebrews 10:5-7) through miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit in the womb of a virgin named Mary (Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 1:26-37)
    2. The Lamb of GOD (John 1:29) WHO lived a sinless life (2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 Peter 2:21-22, 1 John 3:5), died on the cross as atonement for our sins (Leviticus 17:11, Acts 20:28, Hebrews 9:11-14, Hebrews 10:4-10), rose bodily from the grave (Matthew 28:2-7, Mark 16:6, Romans 8:11), ascended into Heaven and sat down at the right hand of GOD The FATHER (Mark 16:19, Luke 24:50-51, Acts 1:9-11, Ephesians 1:20-23, Hebrews 12:2) and will return for reward and punishment at the end of age (Daniel 12:2, Matthew 25:46, John 5:22-29, Acts 24:15)
    3. The Prophet raised up from among The Israelites (Deuteronomy 18:15-19) and the expected Messiah or CHRIST (Daniel 7:24-26, Matthew 1:16, Matthew 16:15-17, Acts 17:2-3, Acts 18:28, 1 John 2:22, 1 John 4:2)
    4. Eternal (Isaiah 9:6, Revelation 1:8, Revelation 1:12-18, Revelation 22:12-13)
    5. All-powerful (Luke 4:28-30, Luke 8:43-48, John 3:34-35, John 6:21, John 18:4-6, Acts 10:38)
    6. All-knowing (John 2:24-25, John 16:30, John 21:17)
    7. Present in all places at the same time (John 1:47-50), unchangeable (Hebrews 13:8)
    8. Co-Creator (John 1:1-3, John 1:10, Colossians 1:15-20, Hebrews 1:2)
  3. GOD The HOLY SPIRIT (Isaiah 42:1-4, Matthew 12:15-21, Ezekiel 36:27, Joel 2:28, Acts 2:1-18), The Third Person of The Trinity is:
    1. The Spirit of Truth (John 14:16-17, John 15:26, John 16:13-14, 1 John 4:1-6), The Spirit of GOD The FATHER (2 Chronicles 24:20, Job 33:4, Matthew 3:16, Romans 8:9, Romans 8:14, 1 Corinthians 3:16, 1 Corinthians 12:3, Ephesians 4:30, 2 Peter 1:21), The Spirit of GOD The Son (Acts 16:6-7, Romans 8:9, Galatians 4:6, Philippians 1:19, 1 Peter 1:11)
    2. A Teacher and a Helper (John 14:16, John 14:26, John 16:7, Romans 8:26-27, 1 Corinthians 2:12-13, 1 Thessalonians 4:9, 1 John 2:27), Living Water (Jeremiah 17:13, Ezekiel 47:12, John 4:10-14, John 7:37-39, Revelation 22:1-2) and Power (Luke 24:49, Acts 1:4-8, Acts 6:8)
    3. Eternal (Hebrews 9:14)
    4. All-powerful (Judges 14:6, 1 Samuel 10:6, Luke 24:49, Acts 1:8, Acts 4:33, Acts 8:39-40)
    5. All-knowing (Acts 8:29-38, Acts 10:19-23, Acts 11:28, 1 Corinthians 2:10)
    6. Present in all places at the same time (John 3:8, Romans 8:11, Romans 8:26-27, 1 Corinthians 6:19, 2 Corinthians 6:16)
    7. Unchangeable (2 Timothy 3:5)
    8. Co-Creator (Genesis 1:2, Luke 1:35)

» We believe The entire BIBLE is The Book of Truth (Daniel 10:21) it is infallible (Isaiah 55:10-11, Matthew 5:18), inerrant (Isaiah 40:8, Isaiah 59:21) and is The inspired WORD of GOD (Psalm 102:18, Romans 15:4, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21)

» We believe mankind is a physical and spiritual being (Psalm 104:29, Psalm 146:4, Ecclesiastes 12:7), that has fallen because of sin or transgression (Genesis 2:16-17, Genesis 3:1-7, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:12-19), this fall brought death (Genesis 2:17, Genesis 3:19, Romans 5:12, Romans 6:23, Hebrews 9:27) and broken fellowship with GOD (Genesis 3:8-10, Job 31:33, Proverbs 28:13, 2 Corinthians 6:14, 1 John 1:6)

» We believe that JESUS CHRIST (GOD The SON), is the only Way to a reconciled relationship with GOD The FATHER (John 14:6, Acts 4:10-12, Acts 10:43, 2 Corinthians 5:18-19, Ephesians 2:18, 1 Timothy 2:5)

» We believe that the Holy Spirit (GOD The SPIRIT) comes to dwell in every believer at the moment of salvation from sins (Romans 5:5, 2 Corinthians 3:17, Galatians 4:6, Titus 3:4-7) resulting in:

  1. A new life (Isaiah 43:18-19, Colossians 3:2-3, Romans 13:14, Ephesians 4:20-24, Colossians 3:10)
  2. A victorious life (Romans 8:37, 1 Corinthians 15:57)
  3. Fellowship with GOD (1 Corinthians 1:9, 2 Corinthians 13:14, 1 John 1:3) and other believers (Psalm 55:14, Acts 2:42, Hebrews 10:25)

» We believe that to baptized in The Name of The FATHER, SON and HOLY SPIRIT means to be immersed:

  1. In water, a baptism of repentance. This immersion by water is an external symbol of an internal change (Mark 1:4-5, Acts 19:3-4, 1 Peter 3:20-21)
  2. In CHRIST, a baptism of spiritual death and new birth. The old sin nature has been put to death (Romans 6:3-8, Galatians 5:4, Galatians 6:14) and the new nature of righteousness has been born (2 Corinthians 5:17, John 3:3-8, 2 Timothy 2:11, 1 Peter 1:23)
  3. In The HOLY SPIRIT, a baptism of power and holiness (Luke 3:16, Luke 24:49, Acts 1:5, Acts 1:8), evidenced through:
    • prophesying (Numbers 11:25, 1 Samuel 10:6, 1 Samuel 19:20, Numbers 24:2, Luke 1:41-42, Luke 1:67)
    • supernatural strength (Judges 14:5-6, 1 Samuel 11:6-7)
    • supernatural courage or boldness (Acts 4:29-31)
    • supernatural wisdom (Matt 10:19-20, Matt 13:11, Luke 12:11-12, Acts 4:8-13, Acts 6:8-10)
    • speaking in tongues (Matthew 3:11, Mark 16:17, Acts 2:4, Acts 10:44-48, Acts 19:1-7)

» We believe Salvation is:

  1. To be delivered from the bondage of sin (Matthew 1:21, John 8:34-36, Romans 7:24-25, Romans 8:2-4, Galatians 5:1, Colossians 1:13-14)
  2. To be delivered from the wrath of GOD that will be executed upon the ungodly at the end of this age (Matthew 3:7, Matthew 24:13, Romans 1:18, Romans 5:9, Ephesians 5:6, Colossians 3:6, 1 Thessalonians 1:10, 1 Thessalonians 5:9, )
  3. To be delivered from eternal doom and destruction (Philippians 3:18-19, 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9, 2 Peter 2:9-12, 2 Peter 3:7-9, Revelation 20:11-15)

» We believe that salvation comes by calling on The Name of JESUS CHRIST (Acts 4:10-12, Romans 10:13) and only through believing (entrusting or totally committing yourself and your entire life) to HIM (John 3:16, John 6:40, John 11:25, Romans 10:9-10)

» We believe that everyone who has been saved from their sins, are commanded to participate in remembering our LORD JESUS and the incredible payment HE made on our behalf(Luke 22:17-20, 1 Corinthians 11:23-26):

» HIS body given for us (Psalm 89:32, Proverbs 20:30, Isaiah 53:1-9, John 19:33-35, Zechariah 12:10-14, Luke 23:48, Isaiah 50:5-7, Matthew 26:67-68, Matthew 27:26-31, Mark 14:65, Mark 15:15-20, Luke 18:31-33, Luke 22:63-65, John 19:1-3)

» HIS blood poured out for us to effect the New Covenant with HIS chosen people (Isaiah 53:10-12, Hebrews 9:15-22, 1 Peter 1:18-19, Matthew 26:27-28, Mark 14:23-24, Luke 22:20,)
We are commanded to remember our LORD and HIS sacrifice until HIS return, when we will celebrate it fully at the marriage supper of The LAMB (Matthew 26:29, Luke 13:28-29, Revelation 19:9)

» We believe that Kingdom of GOD will continue to increase and the Church will continue to be built up until the return of CHRIST JESUS (Proverbs 11:30, Matthew 24:14, Romans 10:13-18, Colossians 1:5-6, Colossians 1:23) as such:

  1. All the offices for building up and equipping the Church are still fully functioning (1 Corinthians 12:28, Ephesians 4:11-13)
  2. All the gifts of The HOLY SPIRIT are still fully operational today (Mark 16:17-18, Luke 10:17-19, Romans 12:4-8, 1 Corinthians 12:1-11, 1 Corinthians 14:1-4, Hebrews 2:3-4, James 5:14-16)
  3. The fruit of The HOLY SPIRIT (Galatians 5:22-23) still bears witness that HE abides in the life of the believer (John 14:16-17, John 14:23, 1 John 3:24) and the believer abides in JESUS CHRIST (John 15:1-8)

» We believe that members of the body of CHRIST/the Church (Romans 12:4-5, 1 Corinthians 12:27, Colossians 1:13-18) are born into the family of GOD (John 3:3, 1 Peter 1:3, 1 Peter 1:23) therefore do not have to “join”.

» We believe that as the body of CHRIST/the Church we are called to:

  1. To love one another (John 13:34-35, John 15:12, John 15:17, Romans 12:10, 1 John 3:10-11, 1 John 3:23, 1 John 4:20-21)
  2. To look out for one another (Philippians 2:3-8, James 2:15-17, 1 John 3:17-18)
  3. To continually pray for each other (Ephesians 6:18, 1 Timothy 2:1-4)
  4. To be truthful with each other (Zechariah 8:16-17, Ephesians 4:25, Colossians 3:9)
  5. To fellowship with one another (Acts 2:42, Hebrews 10:24-25)
  6. To be one in HIM (Psalm 133:1, John 17:21-23, Acts 1:14, Colossians 3:14) not divided by a particular denomination (religious affiliation such as baptist, methodist, lutheran, presbyterian, pentecostal…)
  7. To faithfully tithe (give 10%) to the Church (Proverbs 3:9-10, Haggai 1:3-11, Malachi 3:8-10, Matthew 23:23, Luke 11:42) and cheerfully give to others (2 Corinthians 9:6-8, 2 Corinthians 8:10-15)

» We believe that a believer can fall away and “once saved is not always saved” (Luke 8:13, 1 Timothy 4:1, Hebrews 6:4-8, 2 Peter 2:15, 2 Peter 2:20-22)

» We believe that JESUS CHRIST will return to this world a second time at the end of age in great power (Zechariah 14:1-11, Matthew 24:30-31, Mark 13:24-27, Acts 1:11), HE will be visible to every eye (Revelation 1:7) and it is at this time the dead in CHIRST shall rise first and those who remain alive will be caught up to meet HIM in the sky (1 Corinthians 15:51-52, 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18, 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4)

» We believe the present heavens and earth will be destroyed by fire (Luke 21:33, 2 Peter 3:5-7, 2 Peter 3:10-12) and there will be a new heaven and new earth (Isaiah 65:17, 2 Peter 3:13, Revelation 21:1)

» We believe there are two deaths:

  1. The righteous experience the first death when they die with CHRIST JESUS and are freed from sin (Romans 6:2-11, Colossians 3:3). They will not be affected by the second death (Revelation 2:11, Revelation 20:6)
  2. The wicked will experience the second death (Revelation 20:14, Revelation 21:8) which is hell or the lake of fire

» We believe there are two resurrections (Daniel 12:2, John 5:29, Acts 24:15), first will be the resurrection of the righteous (Luke 14:14, Revelation 20:4-6) and then the resurrection of the wicked (Daniel 7:9-10, Revelation 20:11-15)

» We believe there is a literal Paradise and a literal Hell (Lake of Fire):

  1. Paradise (Luke 23:43, 2 Corinthians 12:2-4, Revelation 2:7) is an actual place of rest (Hebrews 4:1-11, Revelation 14:13) happiness (Psalm 16:11, Psalm 21:6, Psalm 43:3-4) and security (Isaiah 11:6-9, Isaiah 32:15-18, Ezekiel 28:25-26) where:
  2. GOD will dwell among HIS people (Revelation 21:3-4, Revelation 22:1-5)
  3. The city built by GOD is located (John 14:2-3, Hebrews 11:10, Hebrews 11:13-16, Revelation 3:12, Revelation 21:9-26)
  4. Those whose names are recorded in The LAMB’S Book of Life will dwell (Isaiah 4:3, Luke 10:20, Philippians 4:3, Revelation 3:5, Revelation 21:27)
  5. Obedient believers will receive the reward of their deeds done while on earth (2 Timothy 4:8, James 1:12, 1 Peter 5:4, Revelation 2:10, Revelation 2:17, Revelation 7:9-17)
  6. Obedient believers will be able to eat freely from the Tree of Life (Revelation 2:7, Revelation 22:14)
  7. Hell (Lake of Fire) is an actual place of great emotional and physical suffering (Matthew 13:42, Matthew 13:50) with no rest (Revelation 14:11):
  8. A place of eternal punishment (Matthew 25:46, 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9, Jude 1:7)
  9. A place reserved for the devil and his angels (Matthew 25:41, 2 Peter 2:4, Revelation 20:10)
  10. A place reserved for the wicked (Matthew 7:23, Matthew 13:41-42, Jude 1:14-15, Revelation 14:9-11, Revelation 21:7-8)
  11. A place for those whose names are not written in LAMB’S The Book of Life (Exodus 32:33, Psalm 69:27-28, Revelation 13:8, Revelation 20:12-15)
