JESUS CHRIST IS LORD

FAITH STATEMENT

 


WE BELIEVE:

 

The Bible to be the inspired, inerrant, infallible and only authoritative Word of God. The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct.
2 Timothy 3:15-17, 1 Thessalonians 2:13, 2 Peter 1:21

In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal, future return to this earth in power and glory to rule over the nations.The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare:

  • His virgin birth, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:31, Luke 1:35

  • His sinless life, Hebrews 7:26, 1 Peter 2:22

  • His miracles, Acts 2:22, Acts 10:38
  • His bodily resurrection from the dead, Matthew 28:6 Luke 24:39 1 Corinthians 15:4

  • His exaltation to the right hand of God. Acts 1:9, Acts 1:11, Acts 2:33, Philippians 2:9-11, Hebrews 1:3

    The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ.

 

Salvation

 

All men have sinned and fall short of the glory of God - Rom 3:23
"The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" Romans 6:23
All of man's righteousness (good works) are as filthy rags in God's sight - ISA 64:6
Apart from Jesus Christ there is no salvation. Jesus said "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No man comes to the Father but through Me." John 14:6
Man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. The resultant regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.

Salvation is received by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life.
Luke 24:47 John 3:3 Romans 10:13-15, Ephesians 2:8, Titus 2:11, Titus 3:5-7

Other Basic Doctrines

 

in the blessed hope, the rapture of the Church at Christ's coming.The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord is the imminent and blessed hope of the church.1 Thessalonians 4:16,17, Romans 8:23, Titus 2:13, 1 Corinthians 15:51,52

in water baptism by immersion The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded by the Scriptures. All who repent and believe on Christ as Saviour and Lord should be baptized. Not for their salvation but for the outward testimony and declaration to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16, Acts 10:47,48, Romans 6:4

in the baptism in the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it. All believers should ardently expect and earnestly seek it. 1 Corinthians 12:1-31

in one God eternally existing in three persons; namely, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Matt 28:19-20, 1John 5:7 Most Trinitarians emphasize the Three, however the emphasis should be on the One Deuteronomy 6:4. When Philip asked Jesus to see the Father, Jesus responded “Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? John 14:9.

in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation. There will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life, together with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, will be consigned to the everlasting punishment in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. Matthew 25:46, Mark 9:43-48, Revelations 19:20, Revelations 20:11-15, Revelations 21:8
