What We Believe

What We Practice

Bible as our Sole Authority

"The whole Bible was given to us by inspiration from God and is useful to teach us what is true and make us realize what is wrong in our lives; it straightens us out and helps us to do what is right." 2 Tim. 3:16. Since God's Word is the only completely reliable and truthful authority, we accept the Bible as our manual for living.

Priesthood of Every Believer

"He (Christ) loves us, and by His sacrificial death, He has freed us from our sins and made us a kingdom of priests to serve His God." Rev. 1:6 (GN). " … You are … the King's priests … God's own people, chosen to proclaim the wonderful acts of God." I Peter 2:9 (GN) The Bible teaches that every Christian is called to "full-time" Christian service, regardless of his or her vocation. We practice the truth that every believer is a minister by encouraging every member to find a place of service and ministry. Every believer has direct access to God through prayerful Bible reading.

Prayer

Is the most important element in maintaining the life of faith. It recharges, re-invigorates, brings direction, opens our spiritual eyes and keeps us focused on the Lord. It is a two way avenue of communication between the lord and individuals and helps us to know His heart and to share our feelings with him. Prayer is a spiritual life line.

Tithing

"A Tithe of everything you produce belongs to the Lord: it is holy to the Lord." Lev. 27:30. We practice tithing for the support of Christ's Body, the church, as God commands. We recognize that giving 10% of our income is the biblical standard of giving.

Baptism by Immersion

"For when you were baptized, you were buried with Christ, and in baptism, you were also raised with Christ." Col. 2:12 (GN). We practice baptism by immersion under water, the way Jesus was baptized, and the way the Bible commands baptism by personal decision is an important step in the walk of faith and persons should do it as soon as possible after accepting the Lord Jesus Christ.

Spirit-led Living

Jesus said, "I am the Vine, you are the branches. If you abide in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; but apart from me you can do nothing." John 15:5. We believe the only way possible to live the Christian life is by God's power within us. We seek to practice daily dependence on God's Spirit to enable us to do what is right. (Phil. 2:13, Eph. 5:18). People should be engaged in activities to help develop their knowledge of the word of God.

Telling others about Christ

"Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for hope that you have." I Peter 3:15. It is the responsibility of every Christian to share the Good News with those whom God brings us into contact. We practice personal sharing about Christ and inviting friends to church.

Little ones should be dedicated to the Lord upon the request of their parents as soon as possible after birth.
