One Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in all.

EPHESIANS 4: 5-6

Our faith

The Bible and its Divine Inspiration

 

We believe that the Bible from Genesis to Revelation is the inspired word of God and is God's revelation to man, being the infallible, immutable and authoritative rule of faith and conduct.

 

Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21, Titus 1:2

 

 

The One true God

 

We believe in the one true God who has revealed Himself as the eternally

I AM", the Creator of heaven and earth and Redeemer of mankind. He has also revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, being one triune God.

 

Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10,11; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22

 

 

Jesus Christ the Son of God, the only Savior of the world.

 

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who has existed as the Christ long before the foundation of the world and will continue to exist even beyond eternity, that he left his glory and deity in obedience to come to this world to save mankind from the condemnation of sin, being born of a virgin woman; that he revealed the truth and was crucified, died and rose again the third day; ascended into heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father.

 

Isaiah 7:14, John 1, John 3:16-18, Luke 1:30-35

 

 

The Holy Spirit, our helper

 

We believe in the Holy Spirit as the third person of the Trinity, who is carrying out the ministry of God on earth at this moment, who was sent by the Father to reprove the world of sin and judgment, to teach us, guide us, give testimony of our relationship with God, who helps us by grace to live a holy life pleasing to God, who gives us life, who reveals to us the will of God and gives us power to preach the good news of the Kingdom, who heals, delivers, restores, edifies with his power and glory as he did with Jesus.

 

John 7: 37-39, John 14:16-18, 2 Corinthians 3:17, 1 John 3:24, John 14:26.

 

 

Man and sin

 

Man was created good and righteous; for God said: "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness". However, the human being by his own will fell into transgression or sin, thus incurring not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God.

 

Genesis 1:26, 27; 2:17; 3:6; Romans 5:12

Saved by Faith in Christ

 

We believe that salvation is obtained through repentance and confession of sins to God; it is given by divine grace (by faith, not by works) when we believe in the name and person of Jesus Christ. For He is the only mediator between God and man.

 

Romans 3:21-31, Acts 4:12

 

 

Created to Love, Worship and Serve God

 

We believe that we were created to Love, Worship and Serve only God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit and we should not render our worship to false gods, images, things, creatures, men or philosophies, because it is an offense to our God and is considered a sin of idolatry and rebellion against Him.

 

Exodus 20:1-7, Deuteronomy 28, Psalm 115, Isaiah 40:18-31, Galatians 5:16-26

 

 

The Church as the body of Christ on earth

 

The Church is the body of Christ, the dwelling place of God through the Holy Spirit, with the divine commission to carry out his great commission. Every believer, born again, is an integral part of a congregation and a member of the church of the firstborn, who are enrolled in heaven.

 

Ephesians 1:22, 23; 2:22; Hebrews 12:23

 

 

Holiness of the Believer

 

We believe in holiness, as a voluntary style of conduct, as a living offering of love to God, sanctification being a work done instantaneously in the spirit, but which, also, must be progressively developed in the soul and body of the believer.

 

Hebrews 12:14, Romans 6:19-22

 

 

Water Baptism

 

We believe in water baptism as a symbolic or prophetic act of identification with death to sin and the world and resurrection to a new life in Jesus with the promise of Eternal Life.

 

Mark 16:15-16, Romans 6:4

 

 

Baptism in the Holy Spirit and Fire

 

We believe that all believers have the right to receive and should earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal and common experience of all the early Christian church. With baptism comes an endowment of power for life and service and the bestowal of spiritual gifts and their use in ministry.

 

 

Acts 1:8, Acts 2:4, Mark 16:17

The Lord's Supper

 

We believe in the Lord's Supper, as a sacrament or celebration ordained by Christ until his next coming to earth. It consists in the partaking of the Eucharistic species, the bread, symbol of Christ's body, and the wine, symbol of his blood shed on the Cross. This symbolic act expresses our participation in the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ; a reminder of his sufferings and death; and a prophecy of his second coming.

 

2 Peter 1:4, 1 Corinthians 11:26

 

 

The ministries of the church

 

We believe that our Lord has from the beginning provided ministries as the God-given gifts of service to the body of Christ, and constitutes a divine and ordained calling with the fourfold purpose of leading the church in: (1) evangelizing the world and making disciples, (2) worshiping God, (3) caring for and building up the body of saints to perfect them in the image of his Son, and (4) meeting human needs with ministries of love and compassion.

 

Ephesians 4:11, Mark 16:15-20, John 4:23, 24, Psalm 112:9, Galatians 2:10, 6:10, James 1:27

 

 

God governs his people

 

We believe in the Kingdom of God as a Theocratic government and in the person of Jesus as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, as two absolute truths and maxims.

two absolute and maximal truths. That at this time it will be installed in the hearts of believers in Christ and then it will be made physical with the coming of our Lord to earth.

 

Acts 8:1, Psalms 22:28, Psalms 103:19

 

 

The Power of God that delivers, heals and works miracles.

 

We believe in the power of God that heals the sick, casts out demons, works miracles, wonders, signs and wonders, even in our times through the Person of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer.

 

Matthew 12:28 , Isaiah 53:4, James 5:14-16, Mark 16:15

 

 

Life of Faith

 

We believe that every born again child of God walks and works by faith in the Word of God and that without faith it is impossible to live a life pleasing to Him and that by it the promises are inherited.

 

2 Corinthians 5:7, Mark 9:23, Hebrews 11:6

 

 

Evangelism and the Great Commission

 

We believe in preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom locally, nationally and worldwide, by all available means. Making disciples, teaching them to keep what Jesus commanded, training them and being sent out to preach the Gospel to win new disciples.

 

Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 16:15, Romans 1:16

The second resurrection of the saints and the rapture of the church.

 

We believe with hope in the beatitude of the church; the second resurrection of those who have died in Christ and the rapture together with the believers who are alive on earth, being called from the clouds by our Lord to the presence of God in heaven. The Holy Spirit will move in the twinkling of an eye the children of God, to celebrate with Jesus Christ, the Wedding of the Lamb, marrying the Lord with his bride the Church.

 

1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Corinthians 15:51, 52.

 

 

Christ's second coming to earth and the millennial kingdom

 

We believe in the second coming of Christ, that after the marriage of the Lamb he will come with his church to the earth, he will rule from Israel for a thousand years as promised to King David, with the survivors of the great tribulation.

 

Zechariah 14:5; Matthew 24:27-30; Revelation 1:7; 19:11-14; 20:1-6

 

 

The Final Judgment

 

There will be a final judgment in which dead sinners will be resurrected and judged according to their works. Everyone whose name is not found in the Book of Life will be confined to suffer eternal punishment in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death, along with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet.

 

Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 19:20; 20:11-15; 21:8

 

 

A new heaven, a new earth and the new Jerusalem.

 

But we hope, according to his promises, that after evil is judged and his church rewarded, in an instant God will create new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells. From heaven will descend a heavenly city, called the new Jerusalem, where God's people will live in perfect harmony and peace with God for eternity.

 

2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21
