What We Believe

  • About God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the

Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.

Genesis1:1,26,27; 3:22; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14

  • About Humanity

Humans are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. We are the

supreme object of God´s creation. Although humans have tremendous potential for good,

we are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called "sin". This attitude

separates us from God.

Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1,2

  • About Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human

life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross.

He arose bodily from the dead after three days. He ascended to heaven´s glory and will

return again to earth to reign.

Matthew 1:22,23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14,15; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14,15; Titus 2:13

  • About Salvation

Salvation is a gift from God to humanity. We can never make up for our sin by self-

improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God´s offer of forgiveness

can we be saved from sin´s penalty.

Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1

  • About The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to

make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the

moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of

spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His

control daily.

2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16,17; Acts 1:8

  • About The Bible

The Bible is God´s word to all people. It was written by human authors, under the

supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian

beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.

2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20,21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6
