We Believe that Man's primary purpose is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.
The Bible is the Word of God and is made up of the Old and New Testaments. The Word of God, as revealed by the scriptures of the Holy Bible, is infallible; particularly in the original Hebrew and Greek languages. We believe, also, that ALL scripture is inspired by the Holy Spirit and beneficial for teaching, reproving and correction, so that the man and woman of God can be fully competent and equipped for every good work. The Bible primarily teaches what man must believe about God and what God requires of man.
God is spirit, whose being - wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness and truth - are infinite, eternal and unchanging.There is only one God, the living and true God. Three persons are in the one God - the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are one, the same in substance and equal in power and glory. The decrees of God are His eternal plan based on the purposes of His will; by which, for His own glory, He has pre-ordained everything that happens. God requires man to obey His revealed will. The essence of His will is to love the Lord our God with all our hearts, with all our soul, and with all our strength, and to love our neighbours as ourselves.
Sin entered the world when Man, through the first Adam, rebelled against God and fell into a condition of sin and misery.
Jesus Christ the Son of God became man by assuming a real body and a reasoning soul. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit in the womb of the Virgin Mary, who gave birth to him; yet He was without sin. Christ reveals the Word of God to us for our salvation by His Word and Spirit. Christ offered Himself up as a sacrifice for us to satisfy divine justice and to reconcile us to God, and He continually intercedes for us. Christ brings us under His power, rules and defends us, and restrains and conquers all His and our enemies.
Redemption from man's fallen state is only possible through the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal son of God, who became man. He was and continues to be God and man in two distinct natures and one person forever. Jesus Christ is the only way to the Father.
Faith in Jesus To escape God's anger and curse, which we deserve for our sin, God requires, from us, faith in Jesus Christ and repentance unto life whereby through saving grace as a sinner, being truly aware of his sinfulness, understands the mercy of God in Christ, grieves for and hates his sins, and turns from them to God, fully intending and striving for a new obedience. Faith in Jesus Christ is a saving grace, by which we receive and rest on Him alone for salvation, as He is offered to us in the gospel.
Jesus Christ is the vine and Israel is the true branch(es). The church is the wild branch that is grafted into the true vine. God has not rejected His people Israel, but there is a remnant, chosen by grace; for it is written that "all Israel will be saved" - Romans 11:26
