As servants of Jesus Christ, it is our ultimate goal to lead lives that are worthy of our Lord and bring honor to His name. We believe that this is only possible as we mature in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
With this in mind, we regularly engage in Bible study, fellowship, breaking of bread, and prayer. Recognizing the importance of our unity in Christ, we seek to encourage each other in our Christian walk, remember each other in prayer, and aid each other in time of need. Aware of our own shortcomings, we recognize that we should be slow to take offense at others and eager to seek reconciliation, always desiring to further the bond of love that exists between us in Jesus Christ.
We also seek to train our children in the way of the Lord, to contribute both our time and our resources to the spread of the gospel both locally and worldwide, and to be exemplary in our conduct and dealings, realizing that we are His witnesses in whatever circumstance we may be found.
- The Bible is the uniquely inspired Word of God. It is entirely reliable and is the final authority in all matters of faith and life. (II Timothy 3:16,17; II Peter 1:21).
- We worship one God who manifest Himself as three co-equal, co-eternal person; Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14)
- The Son of God (the Lord Jesus Christ) took upon Himself human form, being conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He was the only man whose life was absolutely sinless. (John 1:1; Matthew 1:18-13; I John 3:5; II Corinthians 5:21).
- All men are sinful by nature and by practice (Psalm 51:5: Romans 3:9-23; 5:12-19) and therefore, are separated from God (Isaiah 59:2). It is impossible for a man to be saved by his own works or religious observances. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; Romans 4:5).
- At the cross, Christ suffered God’s punishment for our sin. Christ atoning, vicarious death has provided the only way of salvation for sinful man. Any person who, in faith, rests upon Christ’s finished work (John 19:30) immediately enters into its benefit to the present and eternal salvation of his soul (John 5:24; 10:27-30). Any soul dying without Christ is consigned to a lost eternity in the lake of fire (Luke 16:19-31; John 5:28-29; Revelation 20:11-15).
- Christ arose bodily from the dead and ascended to heaven where He presently intercedes for us as our High Priest and Advocate. (I Corinthians 15:4; Luke 24:50-51; Hebrews 7:25-26; I John 2:1-2)
- The Holy Spirit of God dwells in every believer in Christ. His ministries for the believer involve:
- guiding him into all truth (John 16:31)
- enabling him to live a life that is pleasing to God (Galatians 5:16)
- bearing witness within that he is now a child of God (Romans 8:14-17)
- guiding in the worship and service of the church (John 4:24; I Corinthians 12:4,7,11)
- There are two ordinances for the Church, viz
- the baptism of believers in water as an outward public testimony of an inward conversion (Matthews 28:19; Acts 8:35-38)
- the Lord’s Supper for believers which is a remembrance of the Lord’s death for us. We celebrate this each Lord’s Day as did the early church. (Matthew 26:26-28; I Corinthians 11:23-26; Acts 20:7)
- The Church is looking for the imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ to the air to remove all believers from the world, both those alive at that time as well as those who have died in Christ. (I Thessalonians 4:13-18). Their lives and works will be reviewed and rewarded at that time. (I Corinthians 3:11-15; Romans 14:10-12)
- At a later date, Christ will return to set up His Kingdom (II Thessalonians 1:6-10) in which He will personally, literally reign over this earth for a thousand years. (I Corinthians 15:24-28; Revelation 19:11-20:6).
