We believe that there is one true God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is the Creator and Sustainer of all things. (Genesis 1:1; 1 John 5:7).
We believe in the deity of Christ, in His Virgin Birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His substitutionary and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. (1 Timothy 3:16; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Acts 1:9-11)
The Holy Spirit
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life; we further believe His power and gifts are available to believers today. Evidence of His indwelling is found in Galatians 5:22,Romans 8:16.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful humanity, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential, and that repentance from sin and acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only way to come into a relationship with God. (2 Peter 3:9; John 14:6).
We believe the Bible is the word of God. He promised to preserve His word for every generation. We believe the King James Version constitutes those “words” for the English speaking world. Therefore, our ministry emphasizes the exposition of God’s word from Genesis to Revelation. (Psalm 12:6-7; 2 Timothy 3:16).
We believe it is important to uphold the scriptural practices of the early church. Therefore, we hold to the regular practice of preaching God’s word. The two ordinances of the church we follow are water baptism and communion. We do not believe that either of these practices are essential for salvation, but that they serve as a demonstration of our living faith in Christ. (Acts 2:42; Matthew 28:19-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26).
Heaven and Hell
We believe heaven and hell are real places. They are not a state of mind. London is a place. Hong Kong is a place. Seattle is a place. Heaven is a place. Hell is a place. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:24; Revelation 21:8)
