What We Believe
God is a Person, eternally existing as a Trinity in unity—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—three Persons and yet but one God (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; I Corinthians 8:6).
Man was created in the image of God, but fell through sin, bringing not only physical death but also spiritual death—separation from God. Now all mankind is totally depraved, having inherited a sinful nature; is bent towards sinning, and has become sinful in thought, word, and deed (Genesis 1:26 , 27; 2:16 , 17; 3:6-19; Romans 3:10-23; 6:23 ).
The Lord Jesus Christ suffered and died as a substitutionary sacrifice for the sins of the whole world. He arose from the dead in the body in which He was crucified; He ascended into Heaven in the glorified body where He is seated at the right hand of God the Father as Head of the Church, making intercession for the saints as our High Priest (Luke 24; Acts 1:9-11; Romans 5:8-10; Ephesians 1:20-23;
I Peter 3:18).
The Lord Jesus Christ Himself is coming again in the air at any moment to gather His Church and to reward them for their service. The unbelievers left behind will go through a period called the Tribulation, after which Christ shall return visibly to the earth to set up His Kingdom of one thousand years of righteous rule.
After this, the unbelievers of all ages will stand at the Great White Throne to be judged and cast into the Lake of Fire, separated from God forever, while believers spend eternity in the fullness of joy in Heaven with the Lord (Matthew 24:29-42; I Thessalonians 4:16-18; Revelation 19:11-20:15).
