We are a Christian church whose doctrine and believes are based in the Holy Bible. We consider this to be the Holy revelation from God given to mankind, which guides us to live our individual lives as a married couples, as families, and in the different societies. It also guides us to live in higher moral and spiritual standards where we can live a life in fellowship. It includes harmony, peace, love, kindness, meekness, self control, faith, long suffering, respect, joy and mercy.

Our faith is based on everything that God establishes through the Holy Bible, and our doctrine is formed by:

1. The existence of a Trine God. Unique, and real, with three different personalities: God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Spirit who is the beginning and the origin of everything created on this earth, including the mankind.

 

(Genesis 1)

2. G od the Father Almighty, Holy and Perfect, has control of everything and everyone on earth as it in heaven.

 

 (Philippians 3:21)

3. God the son, Jesus Christ, is the second person of the Trinity and it is through Him that we can find eternal life. In other words, live in God's presence. This is possible because Jesus Christ came to the world sent by God the Father to die for all the sins done by mankind. Therefore, we are redeemed from every sin and accepted before God.

(Luke 2: 8-11)

a) Jesus Christ did not come to condemn the world, but to save it through Himself. This means that everyone who believes in Him will not be condemned.

 

(John 3:17)

b) Jesus Christ was crucified, raised on the third day and is now sitting on the right hand side of God the Father where he's interceding for so that we can be blessed.

 

(Mathew 28, Colossians 3:1, Hebrews 7:22-25)

c) Every man is a sinner. This is why we need to be redeemed so we can live under the blessing of God and this is only possible through Jesus Christ. In him, we can find not only forgiveness of our sins, but salvation and eternal life. He is The Way, The Truth, and The Life and no one can go to the Father unless it is though Him.

 

(John 14:6)

d) There is no other name under the heavens given to the man in which we can find salvation.  It is necessary to accept that we are sinners, accept Jesus Christ as our only Lord and Savior of our lives, and ask Him for forgiveness of our sins. He who is faithful and merciful will forgive us.

 

(Acts 4:12)

4. The Holy Spirit is God’s power, and It's the way that God the Father uses to show Himself to man through spiritual gifts for the edification of the church of Jesus Christ.

 

(1 Corinthians 12)

5.  Being submerged in water for baptisim is for anyone that request it who has invited Jesus Christ to live in their lives, has asked God for forgiveness of sins, and has decided to follow the way that God shows in the Holy Bible.

 

(Romans 6:4-5)

a) To be baptized you must be older than 16, and have confessed by worth that Jesus is the Lord, and that you believed with your heart that Jesus Christ was raised from the death and He is sitting on the right hand side of the Father.

 

(Romans 10:9-10)

6. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit, goes right after the water baptism. It is completely necessary for a christian in order to live a spiritual life in the power of God and to be strengthened to leave aside a life of sin that not only acts against God, but against our brothers. This baptism is necessary to get transformed into a life full of holiness based on the spiritual standards.

 

(John 3:5-6)

7. Loving God and everyone else like loving ourselves. This is one of the main parts of our believes, because without love and mercy nothing that we do has spiritual worth.

 

(1 Corinthians 13)

8. Serve our brothers with the love that Jesus Christ teaches us. We have to practice this every day in our lives.

 

(Mark 10:42-45)

9. Jesus Christ is our example to be followed by us to live our daily lives. Not only in a spiritual side, but material too. In order to make it, we should follow the teachings of Jesus Christ that we find in the gospels, the New Testament and the Old Testament.

 

(1 Peter 2:21)

10. The second coming of the Lord will take place when the Father God decides it to be, and only He knows when this will be. It's purpose will be to take the Church to the presence of God, so that we will dwell forever in the kingdom of God.

 

(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

11. We definitely respect other institutions, people, governors, and authorities of our countries as the laws of this same country.

 

(Romans 13:1)
