Statements of Faith
THE BIBLE TEACHING
We believe that the entire Scripture, both Old and New Testament are written by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit – II Tim. 3:16-17.
ABOUT GOD: Ps. 33:6-9
As revealed unto us by the Bible, we believe that there is only one God, Who is the Creator of both visible and invisible creatures -Gen. 1:1.
ABOUT JESUS CHRIST
We believe that He is the Son of God; Who took away our sins, and the Saviour of the world. We also believe that Jesus is God and was born by Mary the Virgin.
ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is the third Person in the TRINITY. He has the same power, the same glory with God the Father and God the Son – John 14:16-17.
The egg is comprised of three parts: The yellow yolk, the whitish part, and the shell. Despite these three (3) substances, the egg is not three but one. Likewise, we believe that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost are one God, but made of three persons – hence they are ONE IN TRINITY – Gen. 1:16-29; Matt. 3:16-17; Matt. 18:19
A. The Kinds of Baptism We believe in baptism by the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost – Matt. 28:19. The teaching is revealed in the New Testament and all Christians must obey this rule of the Lord – Acts 2:24. Every saved soul automatically qualifies for Water Baptism – Acts 8:29-39.
B. Baptism by Trinity We believe that all members of this Church should receive immersion Water Baptism, in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
C. The Reason for Water Baptism: Water Baptism stands for a sign and an example of two things.
1. It is an outward sign, an example of a true repentance of a sinner from his or her sins. Acts 2:38; Acts 22:6
2. Anybody who is baptized is joined with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection – Rom. 6:1 – 23.
BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
All born-again souls should ask for the Holy Spirit from above, as the Apostles were ordered to wait in Jerusalem until they were filled from above. It is the promise of the Father. It is God’s gift which He gives to those who obey Him – Luke 24:49. It is God’s promise unto those who are far and all whom the Lord shall call – Acts 2:38-39. Any Christian who receives the baptism of the Holy Spirit must speak in tongues – Acts 2:4.
A Christian without condemnation of heart has a right to thank God and be in adoration and in prayer unto the Lord always – Zech. 12:10. His soul thirsts for God – Ps. 42:2. The Holy Spirit helps his infirmities in prayer – Rom. 8:26. We must pray only by the Name of JESUS – John 16:23; I Tim. 2:25. Without faith our prayer shall be powerless before God – James 1:6-8; Heb. 11:6.
