We believe there are certain
essential concepts that must be understood in order for a person to follow
Jesus accurately. Good theology is like a road map that leads you down the
correct path. Some of the primary theological
concepts we teach are given below:
there is one God existing in three persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit.)
that the Bible authoritive in the same way as if God Himself were to audibly
speak to us. The Bible is therefore the basis for the formulation of our belief
that human beings were created by God and in His image, but they subsequently
fell into sin, and as a result came under God's wrath.
We believe in
Jesus Christ as the 2nd person of the Trinity who took on the full

a sinless life and through the gospel: His death, burial, resurrection and
appearances to His followers (1 Corinthians 15:3-5).

conversion and guides them into all truth as they walk in His presence.
We believe that in
eternity past God foreknew those who would be saved and that whoever genuinely
calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.
that the church is the body of Jesus Christ, and because of our unity in Christ
we are also members of one another. This is a mystery and a profound truth.

our relationship with Christ. The first is believer's baptism and the second is
the Lord's Supper/Table.
that Satan is a created being endowed with free will who became the author of
sin by rebelling against the rule of God. He is our enemy and He seeks to
We believe Christ
will return to establish His millennial reign on the earth, and that the church
will rule and reign with Him. After
this, the eternal state will follow.
