STATEMENT OF FAITH

 

 

GOD

 

 

 

We believe in one true and living God; whose very essence is love.

 

United in the one essence of God there are three Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Each of these Persons possesses the entire divine essence undivided

  

and therefore the perfections which belong to God belong to each of the three Persons.

 

 

God is Self-sufficient; Immutable, Eternal, Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent, Holy, Almighty and Incomprehensible.

 In all His ways He is sovereign, Gracious, Righteous, Just, Longsuffering, Merciful and is Approachable only through Christ. 

 God is love and therefore all His counsels and actions proceed from this, His essential nature.

 

JESUS-CHRIST

We believe that JESUS-CHRIST is God.

JESUS of Nazareth was God, who has a human body, was truly God and truly man.  He came as incarnate Man when He was conceived miraculously by the Virgin Mary in the Power of the Holy Spirit.

JESUS came into the world to save us. He suffered, was crucified, died, and was buried for us.

We believe that JESUS CHRIST overcame death when he resurrected from the dead. He is resurrected with a body of incomparable beauty.

He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right-hand side of the Father, as a King, interceding for us.

He is the Only Mediator between God and mankind. He will return and judge all men.

JESUS CHRIST lived without sin. He agreed to be our propitiation for our sin.  When He died on the cross, He took on the punishment which was for us, for salvation to whoever believes in Him.

 

HOLY SPIRIT

We believe that the Holy Spirit is one of the three persons of the Trinity.

We believe that the Holy Spirit came in the world to reveal Christ, to glorify Christ, and to provide guarantee for those who believe.

He convinces the world of sin, brings them to Christ, and gives them a new life.

He lives in them after their new birth, and He is received as a guarantee for any believer until the day of the redemption.

Every believer in Christ is filled by the Holy Spirit in his life, receives the Power of the Holy Spirit, and is directed by Him through faith.

Any believer is called to live in the power of the Holy Spirit which lives in him, so he does not live according to the covetousness of the flesh, but bears fruit which glorify God.

The Holy Spirit is the divine agent which convinces man of sin, of the need for being purified, and of the importance of sanctification. The repentance and the forgiveness of sin are essential to avoid the punishment of sin. This does not negate the fundamental truth of salvation by faith and faith alone.

 

HOLY SCRIPTURES

We believe that the Bible contains 66 books, among whom 39 of the Old Testament, and 27 of New Testament.

They are given without fault and error. They were written by the saints  of God, directed by the Holy Spirit. They contain all that is necessary for the sanctification of men. They direct us in the Faith and our Christian walk, and they reveal what concerns Jesus Christ.

We believe that the Holy Scriptures show the will of God for salvation of man.  His intention is that men consult additional writings only if they can be verified by the scriptures.

The Bible is the rule, fully sufficient sound doctrine and infallible on which is founded our knowledge of the principles of faith and obedience.

 

MEN

Man was originally created in the image of God, without sin. Because of disobedience, he sinned against God, and that was the cause of separation from God.  The fall of Adam meant that all men are guilty and are condemned.

The nature of man is corrupt. For this reason, God sees men as dead spiritually.  Every man be born again, and be transformed by the Holy Spirit.

SALVATION

The salvation of man is a complete gift that God gives freely – the man can not add anything to God’s grace. Those to which God gives salvation are called saints.  It is those who put their trust in Jesus Christ, believe in Him as their Lord and personal Savior, and are called saints.

THE CHURCH

God recommends that His people regularly meet to adore Him, praise Him, and to be strengthened and exhorted by the use of the Holy Scriptures.

Jesus Christ is the head of the Church which is His body –composed of all those living by faith when he returns and those who have died in Christ before he returns.

END of Time

 When a believer dies, he enters directly into eternal communion with Jesus Christ, waiting, consciously, to be clothed with a new beautiful body at the day of resurrection.

When an unbeliever dies, he enters the place of eternal separation from God, waiting, consciously, the resurrection of his body, the judgment, and the eternal punishment.

We believe that Jesus Christ will return for the thousand years reign. This reign will be preceded by the first resurrection and the removal of the Church. The remuneration will be given to the Saints at the time of this meeting with Jesus Christ in the air.  

After the Thousand years reign, the Saints will live eternally with God in Heaven.
