We believe the Scriptures are
revealed will for our lives in written form. They are Almighty-breathed
(2 TIMOTHY 3:16) and are the sole authority in matters of faith, practice
We believe in one Supreme
Being (DEUTERONOMY 4:35;
2 SAMUEL 22:32; GALATIANS 3:20; JAMES 2:19), whose proper, personal name
3:15; ISAIAH 42:8; MATTHEW 28:19).
We believe this one Supreme Being
the Heavenly Father, and that He is the one true Elohim (Mighty One) of
the universe (JOHN 17:3; JOHN 14:26; 1 TIMOTHY 2:5; 1 CORINTHIANS 8:6).
We also believe that
an only begotten Son,
the Messiah (MATTHEW 14:33; 16:15-18; MARK 1:1; 1 JOHN 4:15) who
was born of a virgin (MATTHEW 1-2; LUKE 1:35) and is second in command
over all creation (1 CORINTHIANS 11:3).
We believe the New
Covenant is being established here on earth (2 CORINTHIANS 3:6; HEBREWS
8:7-12), and is joined by accepting the Son of the Almighty as the way to
the Father (JOHN 14:6), and the propitiation for our sins (ROMANS 3:25; 1
JOHN 2:2) by redemption through
We believe that the
forgiveness of sins takes place because of the grace of
Almighty and not because of anything we merit or can accomplish
(EPHESIANS 2:8-10; ACTS 15:6-12).
However this does not mean that there are no conditions to meet for
salvation. Salvation happens after one hears the gospel, believes (has
faith), repents, confesses and is baptized in water (MARK 16:16; ACTS 2:38,
We believe that a forgiven
person will not continue in sin (ROMANS 6:1), but obey the commandments of
YHWH (1 JOHN 2:4-6; 3:7; 5:3).
We believe people under
the New Covenant should not remain isolated to themselves but be active in
a local congregation (HEBREWS 10:25), establishing assemblies (1
CORINTHIANS 11:20; 14:23) overseers (1 TIMOTHY 3:1-7), deacons (1 TIMOTHY
3:8-13) and elders (1 TIMOTHY 5:17-18).
We believe there will be a
second coming of Messiah likened unto how he left (ACTS 1:11) in which he
will judge both the living and the dead (2 TIMOTHY 4:1) according to their
works (REVELATIAN 20:12). We should therefore strive to live our lives in
a pleasing manner towards
and persuade others knowing that
wrath will be carried out (2 CORINTHIANS 5:10-11).
