Pernyataan Iman

We believe that the Bible is verbally and plenarily inspired, is God’s infallible Word, and is authoritative and inerrant.

 

We believe that there is one God, infinite personal perfect and externally existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each person in the Trinity is equal in every divine perfection.

 

We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit, was born of the Virgin Mary, and He is truly God and truly man.

 

We believe that Jesus Christ rose bodily from the grave, ascended into heaven and is daily interceding on our behalf as our high priest.

 

We believe that the return of Christ includes both the Rapture of the Church and His return in glory. The first return is for His church and is personal, pre-Tribulational, pre-Millennial, and may occur at any moment. The second is His return to earth to establish His righteous reign over the earth. This coming is visible, personal, pre-Millennial.

 

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine person and works in the conviction of men and in the regeneration, sanctification and preservation of the believers.

 

We believe that God directly created the Universe ex nihilo substance. We believe that all basic types of living things, including men, were made by directive acts of God during the creation week described in Genesis. We reject both naturalistic and theistic evolution.

 

We believe that man was made in God’s own image and fell into sin and is now a sinner both by nature and by choice and can be restored into God’s favor only by God’s provision in Christ as applied by the Holy Spirit.

 

We believe that salvation comes to man only by grace through faith in Jesus Christ apart from any human merit, through His substitutionary atoning sacrifice.

 

We believe that justification is an act of God in which He declares the believer to be righteous on the basis of faith in Jesus Christ and the imputation of Christ’s righteousness to the believing sinner.

 

We believe that sanctification is the setting apart of a believer unto God as His purchased possession through the work of the Holy Spirit and the power of His Word.

 

We believe that Satan is fallen created personality, opposed to all that is holy and he is destined for eternal punishment.
