Statement of faith
4.The Church is an elect company of believers baptized by the Holy Spirit into one body; her mission is to witness concerning the Head, Jesus Christ, preaching the gospel among all nations; the Church will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air when He (Christ) appears to set up His Kingdom.(Acts 2: 41; 15: 13-17; Eph. 1:3 –6, 1 Corin 12: 12,13; Matt. 28:19, 20; Acts 1:6-8; 1 Thess. 4: 16-18).
5.Jesus Christ is God and man, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died and by His death satisfied the Divine justice and provided salvation, was buried, rose from the dead on the third day, ascended into heaven, mediates for those who believe in Him, and will bodily return in power and glory. (1 Pet. 2:21- 24; Philip. 2:5-6; I Corin. 15: 1-4; Matt. 1: 18-25; Mark 1: 29-45; Acts 1:11; Heb. 7:25).
6.The bodily resurrection of the saved unto everlasting life and glorious blessedness with the Lord, the bodily resurrection of the unsaved unto the everlasting conscious punishment in hell. (I Corin.15:12-57; John 5:28-29; Rev.19:20; 20:10-15).
7.That the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit, and thus become children of God. (Eph. 1:7; 2:8-9; Rom.10:9-10; John 1:12; Heb. 9:11-14, 22).
8.The Holy Spirit glorifies Jesus Christ, convicts people of sin, regenerates the believing sinner, indwells every believer, sets a part a believer to God and enables him to live a godly life, guides, instructs and teaches a believer. It is the privilege of every believer to be filled with the Holy Spirit, thus a believer is empowered to serve and witness for Jesus Christ. (John 15:26; 16:7-16; Gal. 3:26 – 28; Col. 1:18; Eph. 4: 15 – 16; 5:18 – 21).
