UNIFIED CONFESSION
APOSTLES’ CREED
I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended into hell.
On the third day He rose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven
and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.
From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy Christian Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.  Amen.

Beliefs


BIBLICAL KINGDOM TRUTHS

Beliefs


BIBLICAL KINGDOM TRUTHS

THE TRINITY
It is the testimony of both the Old and New Testaments and of the Christian Church that God is both One and Triune. The biblical revelation testifies that there is only one God and that He is eternally existent in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

GOD THE FATHER
God the Father is the creator and sustainer of all things, and He created the universe in love. He created man in His own image for fellowship and called man back to Himself through Christ after the rebellion and fall of man.

THE SON
Jesus Christ is eternally God. He was together with the Father and the Holy Spirit from the beginning, and through Him all things were made. For man’s redemption, He left heaven and became incarnate by the Holy Spirit through the virgin Mary; henceforth, He is forever one Christ with two natures - God and man - in one person.

THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is God, the Lord and giver of life, who is active in the Old Testament and given to the Church in fullness at Pentecost. He empowers the saints for service and witness, cleanses man from the old nature and conforms us to the image of Christ. The baptism in the Holy Spirit, subsequent to conversion, releases the fullness of the Spirit and is evidenced by the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit.

THE BIBLE
We affirm that the Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments, was written by human authors, but inspired by God, and is infallible.  It is the Word of God, and its authority is ultimate, final and eternal. It cannot be added to, subtracted from or superseded in any regard. The Bible is the source of all doctrine, instruction, correction and reproof. It contains all that is needed for guidance in godliness and practical Christian conduct.

SALVATION
The Word of God declares clearly that salvation is a free gift of God, based on the merits of the death of His Son, and is appropriated by faith.   Salvation is effected by personal repentance, belief in the Lord Jesus (justification) and personal acceptance of Him into one's life as Lord and Savior (regeneration).  The new life in Christ includes the privileges of adoption and inheritance in the Kingdom of God's beloved Son.

ATONEMENT
Christ’s vicarious death on the cross paid the penalty for the sins of the whole world, but its benefits are only applicable to those who receive Jesus as personal Savior. Healing - body, soul and spirit - and all of God’s provisions for His saints are provided for in the atonement, but these must be appropriated.

THE CHURCH
The church is God’s design for community. It consists of those who believe in Jesus and those who are seeking to find Jesus. The local church is a vehicle used by God to work in the earth through bible teaching, encouraging and equipping those who have made a commitment to follow Christ, and to help or rescue those who do not yet know HIM.  It is a place designed for corporate worship, prayer, and spiritual growth.

BAPTISM
Baptism is the outward sign of what God had already done in the individual’s life and is a testimony to all that the person now belongs to Jesus. It is identification with Jesus and is effected in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

COMMUNION
Communion is a commemoration of the death of the Lord and is done in remembrance of Him until He comes again; it is a sign of our participation in Him.

MARRIAGE
We believe that marriage is a holy institution established by God, between one man and one woman, reflecting the nature of Christ's love and devotion for His bride, the Church.  The Bible defines human sexuality as only correctly expressed within the security and commitment of such a marriage covenant.  All other practices are described as "sexual immorality" and in-congruent with following Jesus Christ.

FINAL JUDGEMENT & REWARD
We affirm the bodily, personal, second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, the resurrection of the saints, the millennium and the final judgment. The final judgment will determine the eternal status of both the saints and the unbelievers, determined by their relationship to Jesus Christ. We affirm with the Bible the final state of the new heavens and the new earth.
