To Live in Christ Jesus and reveal His kingdom in this world
"Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe."
"Christ in you is the hope of Glory.."
- There is only one true God, perfect, infinite, and eternal, unchangeable in wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, love and truth, who is Creator, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe, eternally existing in three Persons, namely, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, equal in essence, honor and obedience.
- Man disobeyed God (believed Satan lie ) in the Garden of Eden and thereby lost the indwelling Divine Life. Now he suffers physically, mentally, morally, and spiritually; and through that first act of disobedience, the entire human race became involved so that in every heart there exists a disposition which leads to acts of sin and to just condemnation.
- In the fullness of time, the eternally pre-existent Son humbled Himself, assumed man's nature, was born of a virgin, and united the Divine and human natures in the Person of Jesus Christ.
- God has provided redemption through the Finished work of Christ, who voluntarily offered Himself as a perfect sacrifice for sin, arose bodily from the dead and then ascended to Heaven where he now intercedes as our High Priest.
- The Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Trinity, Now administrates the Life (zoe) of God in and through us. Who comforts, unites and empowers God's children for life and service.
- Salvation comes by Grace through faith in Jesus Christ, whereby the believer is declared righteous before God. Salvation is an unmerited gift of God’s Grace and enabling the regeneration of God’s divine nature in us.
- The true church is composed of believers from all ages and all races; and is to join together regularly for worship, to partake in the ordinances, edification, to witness to all people, and to glorify God.
- Water baptism is the public confession of one's union, by faith, with Jesus Christ in death, burial, and resurrection, and therefore, is to be administered to those who have given evidence of faith in Christ as Savior.
- The Lord's Supper symbolises the death of Christ for the forgiveness of our sins and our continual dependence upon Him, and is for all in a right relationship one with another and Christ. This meal communicates our covenant with the Lord.
- We are saved and sanctified by grace through faith. This grace initially enables the believer to know that they are unconditionally loved and accepted as they are, and are persuaded by the Holy Spirit to cease from the vain pursuit of earning their salvation by works. Upon this foundation of unconditional love and acceptance the believer’s receptivity to grace enables them to be transformed from glory to glory so that their salvation is worked out with reverence and a profound sense of inadequacy
- The giving of finances is the privilege of the believer as a response of faith in God’s unconditional love and demonstrates the generosity of God’s character in and through us.
- Christ will return at the end of the age and those whom have died shall be raised bodily; those saved will enter into the eternal presence of Christ, those not saved will experience a Christ less eternity. There will be a new Heaven and earth.
