We believe in the eternal God of the Bible, the Creator of heaven and earth who reveals himself as
the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
2. God the Father
We believe in God the Father, who, in his mercy and compassion, wants all humans to come to the knowledge and the truth of their need for a Savior. That is why he has given his Son for the salvation of a lost world. His love in doing so surpasses all human understanding.
3. Jesus Christ
We believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus was the only begotten son of the Holy Spirit and was born of the Virgin Mary. In him, God revealed himself and his mercy as the hope of the world. His life is a testimony and revelation of God’s nature, and through his death on the cross, he obtained salvation for all people. As predicted, he rose again after three days, passed on his mission to offer eternal life to everyone through his disciples, and ascended into heaven. We believe that Jesus will return in power and glory, offer eternal glory for those who believe and eternal judgement to those who turn away from God. Through Jesus people can have a relationship with God, and if we turn to him in faith, acknowledge our sinfulness, and ask him to forgive us, then we can be eternally saved.
4. Holy Spirit
We believe in the Holy Spirit. He is the presence of God on earth, helping us with our rebirth in Jesus Christ and creating new life in us. Through the baptism of the Holy Spirit, God empowers all believers to action and life in his nature and the gifts that he gives us. These gifts serve as mutual encouragement to believers and as a service to the world.
We believe that the church is the community of believers called by God. It is the place where God reveals himself on the earth. Jesus gave those in his community the mission to proclaim his Good News to the world, to baptize new believers, and to equip them as disciples. We believe in baptism as a visible testimony of and personal commitment to the forgiveness of sins and faith in Jesus Christ through which believers are added to the local community. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper to commemorate the death and resurrection of Jesus, as a mutual participation in Jesus Christ, and in expectation of his return. Therefore we believe in healing and full recovery of the whole person.
