We believe the Bible to be the complete Word of God.
That the 66 books of the Old and New Testament were inspired by the Spirit of God as originally written.
That the Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct (2 Timothy 3:16).
We believe in one God, Creator of all, holy, sovereign, eternal, existing in three equal Persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the absolute and essential deity of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In His eternal existence, with the Father in pre-incarnate glory.
In His work of creation, in His virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death and bodily resurrection.
In His triumphant ascension, mediatorial ministry and personal return.
We believe in the absolute and essential deity, and in the personality of the Holy Spirit.
Who convinces of sin, of righteousness and of judgment.
Who regenerates, indwells, seals, sanctifies, illuminates and comforts those who believe in Jesus Christ.
Who baptizes believers at conversion into the Body of Christ and bestows upon them His gifts sovereignly as He wills and fills those yielded to Him.
We believe that Adam was divinely created in the image of God.
That by the sin of disobedience he fell from that state.
That all his posterity inherited spiritual depravity and defilement.
That all men therefore are guilty before God and condemned to physical and spiritual death.
We believe that in salvation the sole condition for receiving everlasting life is faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ, Who died a substitutionary death on the cross for man’s sin and rose bodily from the dead (John 3:16-18; 6:47; Acts 16:31).
Faith is the conviction that something is true. To believe in Jesus (“he who believes in Me has everlasting life”) is to be convinced that He guarantees everlasting life to all who simply believe in Him for it (John 4:14; 5:24; 6:47; 11:26; 1 Timothy 1:16).
No act of obedience, preceding or following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, such as commitment to obey, sorrow for sin, turning from one’s sin, baptism or submission to the Lordship of Christ, may be added to, or considered part of, faith as a condition for receiving everlasting life (Rom 4:5; Gal 2:16; Titus 3:5).
This saving transaction between God and the sinner is simply the giving and receiving of a free gift (Ephesians 2:8-9; John 4:10 ; Revelation 22:17 ).
That by the Father, Christ voluntarily suffered a propitiatory death.
That justification is by faith alone in the all-sufficient sacrifice and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
That those whom God has effectually called shall be divinely preserved and ultimately perfected in the image of the Lord.
The end of the age will come in God’s own time and manner. The Day of the Lord will begin with the Rapture of the church, where the dead will be resurrected and the living believers will be glorified and taken to Heaven to await the judgment seat of Christ.
This is where they will receive their reward. Following the Rapture, the seven-year tribulation period will occur. As promised, Jesus Christ will personally and visibly return in glory to the earth at the conclusion of the Tribulation.
His purpose will be to rescue the remnant of Israel and the Gentile
nations. Furthermore, Jesus Christ will judge the nations righteously.
According to scriptural beliefs, those who are deemed unrighteous will face eternal punishment in Hell. However, the faithful remnant of Israel and Gentiles will reside in the Millennial Kingdom for a period of 1,000 years. Following this, the Great White Throne Judgment will occur, and all non-believers, including the Devil and his followers, will face everlasting torment in the Lake of Fire.
In contrast, those who are
deemed righteous will enjoy eternal residence in Heaven alongside
the Lord, in their resurrected and glorified bodies. The relevant
scriptures are provided below for reference.
The Rapture of the Church:
According to scripture, Christ will return to gather the Church, both
those who have passed away and those still alive, into the air. This
event is believed to be imminent and Pre-Tribulational, and it
represents the blessed hope of the Church. See the scriptures below
for more information.
The Seven-year Tribulation:
Our belief is that following the Rapture, there will be a seven-year
period known as the Tribulation of Israel’s Seventieth Week. This
period will serve as a time of judgment for all of humanity and will
bring about the end of the times of the Gentiles. Ultimately, it will result in the national regeneration of Israel. (Please refer to the
corresponding scriptures for further explanation.)
The Second Coming:
Our belief centers around the return of Christ, where he will appear
visibly and personally with his saints after the tribulation and before
the millennium. This appearance will occur in the clouds of heaven
with great glory and power. It will be done as its primary purpose is to save Israel from its enemies. Christ will also judge all living Gentiles to determine who will be excluded from the Kingdom and who will be included. Please refer to the scriptures below for further details.
The Messianic/Millennial Kingdom:
The Kingdom of God encompasses His universal sovereignty as well
as His specific reign over individuals who willingly recognize Him as
their King. At present, we are in the Mystery phase of God’s kingdom, which is invisible. Believers should pray and work towards the establishment of God’s Kingdom on earth and the fulfillment of His will. The complete realization of the Kingdom will occur upon the
return of Jesus Christ, who will rule over Israel and the Gentile nations for a thousand years. The Kingdom of God will endure beyond the Millennium and into eternity. During the Millennium, the Church will co- reign with Christ, Israel’s unconditional covenants will be fulfilled, the Old Testament saints will be resurrected, Satan will be bound, the curse will be lifted, and the knowledge of God will fill the world.
Christ’s unwavering rule will ensure lasting peace.
