Statements of Faith

 

 

We believe:

 

 

The Bible, consisting of the books of the Old and New Testaments, excluding the apocrypha, is the inspired Word of God and is the infallible, all sufficient authority for faith and practice.

 

The Godhead,  one True and Living God who is the eternal self existent "YAHWEH" (I AM), and who has also revealed Himself to be One being in Three Persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

 

Creation, the Biblical account. Man Was created in God’s image without sin and given dominion over creation, fell by voluntary transgression as a result of which all men are born with a sinful nature.

 

Jesus Christ, (Yeshua Ha-Mashiach) the Son of God, lived a sinless life, died once for our sins according to the Scriptures, was buried, raised from the dead in bodily form on the third day and triumphantly ascended to heaven. Through His blood we have redemption.

 

Salvation, is available to all, that it includes justification, sanctification and glorification, that repentance for sin and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ are essential to salvation, that the repentant sinner is justified by faith alone, that this is evidenced in holy living.

 

The commission, of the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers is “Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature, teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.”

 

The Holy Spirit, proceeds from the Father, and the Son. The Holy Spirit’s work is: to convince the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, to teach, to guide into all truth, to bring the Word of Christ to remembrance, to glorify Christ, to show things to come, to produce fruit in the life of the believers, to equip believers for effective service and ministry.

 

The New Birth,  is an instantaneous operation of the Holy Spirit upon repentance toward God and the exercise of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Baptism, by immersion in water by all who have repented, believed with their hearts, and confessed that Jesus Christ is Savior and Lord.

 

Breaking of Bread by all who have new birth in  Christ until the Lord Jesus  returns, and is a representation only of his atoning body and blood.

 

The Church, is comprised exclusively of all who by virtue of repentance from sin and faith in Jesus Christ are born again of God’s Holy Spirit and have become part of Christ’s body. And opposed to unbiblical “so called” interfaith/ecumenical unity. The local church is to be sovereign and autonomous.

 

The King of Kings, Jesus  pre-millennial return is imminent, that the complete church will be translated to meet the Lord in the air, to be forever with the Lord.

 

The Future, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ the Millenium reign and the prophetic purposes of God for Israel and the Jews.

 

The final judgment, of the living and the dead by Jesus Christ.

 

The everlasting, conscious punishment of those who have ignored or rejected the offer of salvation through Jesus Christ, the wicked and unrepentant.

 

The everlasting, conscious bliss of those in Christ, to be eternally in His Presence.
