We declare that there is only one living and true God known as - I AM. He is whatever he desires to be and whatever we believe we want him to be to us - Father, savior, advisor, friend, advocate, protector, strategist, counsellor, warrior, judge, teacher, helper and the one who fills the gap in every missing area in our lives.
He is known to us as Adonai, Yaweh and Elohim who exists eternally as three divinities: the Father, the Son - Jesus (Yeshua), and the Holy Spirit. These three persons are equal in power and glory and are responsible for creating, upholding, and governing all things. We believe in God as creator and sustainer of all things. We believe that God is eternal, holy, and loving.
(Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19)
We declare that salvation only comes through the repentance of our sins and by believing upon the person and work of Jesus Christ. No one comes to the father except through JESUS. We declare that Jesus’ sinless life if accepted makes us righteous before God and His substitutionary death removes all our sin and establishes our eternal security. We declare that salvation cannot be earned or purchased and can only be received as a free gift from God.
(Romans 5:1; John 2:1-2; Romans 10:9; Ephesians 2:8)
We declare that Jesus Christ is the son of God and second member of the trinity. We declare that Jesus willingly came into our world as fully man, while continuing to be fully God. We believe that Jesus lived a completely sinless life on our behalf, died a sinners death in our place, physically rose from the dead declaring victory over sin and death, and ascended to heaven where He is currently seated at the right hand of God as our advocate and intercessor.
(Luke 1:35; Matthew 3:17; 1 Peter 2:24; Luke 24:46-47; Romans 8:34; Hebrews 12:2)
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third member of the trinity. We believe that the indwelling of the Holy Spirit is essential for and evidence of a person’s salvation. We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgement. We believe that the Holy Spirit gives gifts for serving one another and empowers believers to live holy and effective lives for the glory of God.
We believe that man was created in the image of God and was designed to be in loving relationship with God. We believe that because of man’s sinful disobedience, mankind was separated from the loving intimacy that God intended. We believe that mankind’s greatest and deepest need is to be forgiven of sin and restored back into right relationship with God and thus fulfill his ultimate purpose which is to worship God and fully enjoy God forever.
We also believe that the Old and New Testament scriptures are the Word of God, fully inspired and free of error, and serve as the infallible guide for our faith and practice. The Word of God is the foundation of our church and takes precedence over any earthly laws that conflict with it.
We believe that the church consists of men and women who believe in Jesus as Lord and Savior. We believe that the church is one body with many members, unified through faith in Jesus. We believe that the church is called to gather together regularly for fellowship, teaching, prayer, and communion. We believe that the church exists to continue the work of Jesus by declaring the gospel, making disciples, and demonstrating God's love to the world.
