Statement of faith:
Holding the Bible as the complete and only divine revelation, we strongly believe that God is eternally one and also eternally the Father, the Son, and the Spirit, the three being distinct but not separate. We hold that Christ is both the complete God and the perfect man. Without abandoning His divinity, He was conceived in the womb of a human virgin, lived a genuine human life on earth, and died a vicarious and all-inclusive death on the cross. After three days He resurrected bodily and has ascended to the heavens. He is now in glory, fully God but still fully man. We look to His imminent return with the kingdom of God, by which He will reign over the earth in the millennium and in eternity.

We confess that the third of the Trinity, the Spirit, is equally God. All that the Father has and is, is expressed by the Son; and all that the Son has and is, is realized as the Spirit. We further believe that mankind is in need of God's salvation. Though we were absolutely unable to fulfill the heavy demands of God's righteousness, holiness, and glory, Christ fulfilled all the requirements through His death on the cross. Because of Christ's death, God has forgiven us of our sins, justified us by making Christ our righteousness and reconciled us to Himself.
Based on Christ's redemption, God regenerates the redeemed with His Spirit to consummate His salvation, that they may become His children. Now possessing God's life and nature, the believers enjoy a daily salvation in His Body in this age and the eternal salvation in the coming age and in eternity. In eternity we will dwell with God in the New Jerusalem, the consummation of God's salvation of His elect.

Mission
It is our aim to bring people into a life-changing experience with God where they become part of a living testimony of God’s grace and goodness to those around them.
It is our mission to Connect people to God by bringing Jesus to them in a way that is culturally relevant to their lives without compromising the timeless truth of the Bible.
Shepherd people into a life- altering experience of Christ such that their living would reflect God’s kingdom and positively affect those around them.
Provide a setting for growth and development of spiritual gifts so that people may realize their importance and role in the church.

 The following few statements encapsulate our view of the basic Bible message.
Creation:
The universe and all creation display God’s power and majestic splendor which in turn testifies to the world that “There is God”.
Humanity:
God’s creation of people was very good. However, the first created man, Adam, sinned. This sin introduced a nature into all mankind that was contrary to God and subsequently affected the entire human race. So, while people know that there is God, their sinful state separates them from God and prohibits them from really knowing Him.

Jesus Christ:
Jesus Christ is God, Who put on human flesh (incarnation) and came to live among us, His created people. Because of His intense love for the human race, He suffered and died on the cross to rescue us out of our helpless sinful state and bring us back into a connection with God. His death and resurrection not only took care of the problem of sin but also released His life into all those who believe. This occurred in much the same way as a seed, after it has been buried in the ground, grows out of the ground and multiplies into many seeds.

The Church:
On a grand scale, there is one church which is composed of all believers from past, present, and future that now possess the life of God through Jesus Christ. They, as the many members of His one body, are His continuation, expression, and multiplication throughout the earth.
On a practical side there are “churches” in towns and cities as visible local expressions of the life of Jesus Christ. They are composed of believers in a particular place and exhibit God’s salvation for people to both see and experience. The church is not something hidden but rather a “city on a hill” and a “light upon a stand” that serves as a beacon of hope in the midst of a dark and unstable world.
