Statement of Faith[edit]

English Version [12]

  1. We believe that The Holy Scripture is GOD’s Words implemented by The Holy Spirit, consisting of 66 books, from Genesis to Revelation (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21).
  2. We believe that the attributes of GOD's Deity is in the form of Trinity “GOD The Father, GOD the Son, and The Holy Spirit” (Deuteronomy 6:4; I Timothy 2:5; I John 5:7; Matthew 28:19), The One and Only GOD whose name is “Jesus Christ” (Acts 2:36; 8:12; 10:48; Matthew 1:1; Revelation 22:20-21; Acts 19:5; I Peter 3:15).
  3. We believe that GOD is The Creator of the universe and mankind, stated in the book of Genesis (Genesis 1 & 2; John 1:1-3; Colossians 1:16; Romans 4:17; 1:19-20).
  4. We believe that Jesus Christ, The Son of GOD, born as man (from the anointed Virgin Mary by The Holy Spirit), crucified and died on The Cross to bear our sins, buried, resurrected, and rose to The Heaven above, and will come again in The Second Coming. (John 20:31; Romans 1:4; I John 4:15; John 1:14; Philippians 2:7-8; II Timothy 3:16; Matthew 1:18; Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:35; I Timothy 1:15; Acts 4:1-12; 10:42-43; Romans 6:4; I Corinthians 15:3-4; I Thessalonians 4:15,17).
  5. We believe that The Holy Spirit is GOD’s figure, having His Divine characters of Immortality, Presence, Power, Wisdom, Holy, and Love. Baptism by The Holy Spirit is anointed and filled by The Holy Spirit, with manifestation of speaking in different languages supplemented by The Holy Spirit. Baptism is for those who repent from their sins and born again in Him (I John 5:7; II Corinthians 13:13; Hebrews 9:14; Psalm 139:7-10; Luke 1:35; Genesis 1:2; Job 26:13; Acts 2:4; 10:45-46; 19:6; Mark 16:17; John 7:38-39).
  6. We believe in water baptism, submerged in the name of GOD The Father, GOD The Son, and The Holy Spirit. This baptism upon Jesus Christ’s will is mandatory for those who are saved, believe in Him, repent and born again in order to support GOD’s truth (Mark 16:15-16; Acts 2:38; 8:12, 37 & 39; Matthew 3:15; 28:19; Mark 1:15).
  7. We believe in the salvation of spirit, soul, and body by GOD’s Grace and faith in Jesus Christ. The believers must maintain their covenant, holiness, faith; otherwise, the salvation will be annulled (Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 10:9-10; I Corinthians 1:18; Philippians 2:12; Matthew 24:13; Hebrews 3:12; II Peter 2:20-22; 1:4-11; Jude 1:3).
  8. We believe in the manifestations of The Holy Spirit among Jesus Christ’s followers (I Corinthians 12:4-11; 14:26).
  9. We believe in The Lord’s Holy Sacrament, should be received by true believers (Luke 22:19-20; I Corinthians 11:23-26; John 6:53-56).
  10. We believe in GOD’s Miraculous Healing over any kind of disease by The Power of Jesus’ precious blood in HIS Holy Name (Isaiah 53:4; I Peter 2:24; Acts 4:30; Mark 16:18).
  11. We believe in GOD’s blessing and aspiration upon the birth of every child (Luke 2:22-27; Matthew 19:13-15; Mark 10:13-16; Luke 18:15-17).
  12. We believe in The Solitary GOD’s Church, the fellowship of true believers, by which is holy and perfect as The Bride, kept aside for three and a half years in the tribulation; then transformed and lifted on The Second Coming of Jesus Christ (John 17:21-23; Ephesians 4:12-16; I Thessalonians 5:23; I Peter 5:10; I Thessalonians 5:4; I Corinthians 15:51).
  13. We believe Jesus Christ is The Groom, The King of Kings, and The Lord of Lords, who will come and arbitrate the whole world in just, and will reign in The Thousand-Year-of-Peaceful Kingdom with the Bride, HIS Church (Acts 1:11; Revelation 22:7; I Corinthians 15:24-25; I Thessalonians 4:16-17; II Thessalonians 1:7-9; Revelation 20:10-15; Revelation 19:11-16; I Timothy 6:15).
  14. We believe in the resurrection of the holy people before The Thousand-Year-of-Peaceful Kingdom and the resurrection of all sinners afterwards; the holy ones will receive the eternal life, but the sinners will face the final judgment before GOD’s Throne and get the endless punishment in the sea of fire in hell (Revelation 20:1-15; I Thessalonians 4:16-17).
  15. We believe in the New World and atmosphere, full with The Truth and everlasting home for all Jesus Christ’s followers (I Peter 1:18-19; II Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:1-18).
  16. We believe in the praise and worship gatherings that should be conducted regularly, with solemn and joy (Acts 2:25; Exodus 23:25; Hebrews 10:25; Psalms 47:2; 100:1-5; 134:2; 150:1-5).
  17. We believe that every government is GOD”s authority to whom we must obey (Romans 13:4; I Peter 2:17; I Timothy 2:1-2; Proverbs 21:1).
