OUR VALUES AND CONVICTIONS
There is one sovereign Deity – Yahweh – God (Deuteronomy 6:4) – creator of the heavens and the earth and all that is in them by His Word. The Godhead (Deity) eternally exists as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The Old and New Testaments contained in The Bible is the record of God’s dealing with humanity from beginning to end. The Bible reveals God’s purpose, plan and will for humankind. It is “God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16) so that the followers of Christ may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. “…who as to his human nature was a descendant of David, and who through the Spirit of holiness was declared with power to be the Son of God by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 1:3b-4)
The Holy Spirit is God’s promised gift to all believers. “Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.” (Ephesians 1:13b-14)
Salvation is offered by grace to all who believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.” (Romans 5:1-2)
There is one universal body (church) of Christ of which He is head and every baptized believer is a part of that body. “For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body…” (1 Corinthians 12:13a). “And he is the head of the body, the church…” (Colossians 1:18a)
SPIRIT OF UNITY is a church that is in fellowship with all who profess these beliefs. “…those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be holy, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ—their Lord and ours.” (1 Corinthians 1:2b)
