Statement of Faith

I believe in the Bible which is the Word of God (John 1:1) and God breathed (2 Tim 3:16-17).  I believe in God as the Father when you are adopted as sons (Rom 8:15) through faith in God’s only begotten Son, Jesus Christ (John 3:16). I furthermore believe that the Holy Spirit was sent by God the Father in Jesus’s Name, to be our Comforter (John 14:25-27).

I believe in the God Trinity which is God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit who are One (1 John 5:7).

Furthermore God is Creator of all (Deuteronomy 6:4; Colossians 1:16).  The Lord Jesus Christ, He is God incarnate, God in human form, the expressed image of the Father, who, without ceasing to be God, became man in order that He might demonstrate who God is and provide the means of salvation for humanity (Matthew 1:21; John 1:18; Colossians 1:15).

We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit and was born of the virgin Mary (Matthew 1:23);  He is truly fully God, fully man (John 1:1,14); He lived a perfect, sinless life (1 John 3:5);  all His teachings are true (John 14:6). The Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross for all humanity (1 John 2:2). The Lord Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven in His glorified body (Acts 1:9-10) and is now seated at the right hand of God as our High Priest and Advocate (Romans 8:34).

I believe in the deity and personality of the Holy Spirit. He indwells believers (Romans 8:9). He is the agent by whom Christ baptizes all believers into His body (1 Corinthians 12:12-14). He is the seal by whom the Father guarantees the salvation of believers unto the day of redemption (Ephesians 1:13-14). He is the Divine Teacher who illumines believers’ hearts and minds as they study the Word of God (1 Corinthians 2:9-12). The Holy Spirit is ultimately sovereign in the distribution of spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 12:11), the miraculous gifts of the Spirit, while by no means outside of the Spirit’s ability to empower, no longer function to the same degree they did in the early development of the church (1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 2 Corinthians 12:12; Ephesians 2:20; 4:7-12).

I believe there is Angels and demons (Nehemiah 9:6) and that Satan was cast down by God (Isaiah 14:12-17; Ezekiel 28:12-15). Satan is the great enemy of God and man, the demons are Satan’s servants in evil. Satan and his demons will be eternally punished in the lake of fire (Matthew 25:41; Revelation 20:10).

Furthermore, Jesus Christ will return again one day and rapture His church (those who believes in Jesus Christ) (1 Tess 4:13-18) and that the unbelievers will stand before the great White Throne judgement and cast in the Lake of Fire for eternity (Rev 20:11-15) along with Satan, the false prophet and the beast (Rev 20:10).
