What We Believe
The Bible: We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, given to men as a testimony of the life of Jesus Christ, a guide for our lives (through principles and precepts) and is given to us unto salvation. We believe that THE BIBLE IS THE WORD OF GOD and we must live by it for our own discipline and forgiveness (Matthew 18:15-17). The Holy Scriptures are the source of our spiritual instruction and we read and meditate on it or hide it daily in our hearts (Psalm 119:11) for its revelations of old truths and Godly wisdom.
Our Membership in the Body: We are members of the Body of Christ and we support each other in prayer and christian charity (Psalm 133:1; I Corinthians 12:12-27) and we exercise love for one another (I Corinthians 13). We are all members of one body (Ephesians 4:25-28) and we walk as new believers and creatures with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit as God's dear children prepared for war in all of life's stages as we praise and worship the victorious Lamb of God (Ephesians 4:17-6:11).
Our Duty as Leaders: We recognize Jesus as The Shepherd and that He has given us an Under-shepherd to guard our souls and lead us as Christ's ambassador in the field of service. We, therefore, accept our appointments as a Calling (I Timothy 3:1-13) from Jesus and the Under-shepherd. We are called to serve His Church to the glory of God, walking worthy of our calling (Ephesians 4:1). We are further called upon to follow the Under-Shepherd in discharging his duties and responsibilities as the leader, by assuming duties and responsibilities of our leadership calling.
