How to Begin Your Faith Journey:

1. Understanding who Jesus is and what He did for us. He was God's only son and He loved us so much that He chose to willingly die in our place for our sins/wrong doings, even though we are the ones who did the wrong against God and His ways.

2. Understanding who you are. You are just a mere human. You are weak and vulnerable without God in your life. You will continue to commit sins/wrong doings against God without Jesus in your life. You need God's strength, power and love in your life to make it here on this earth.

3. Understanding that God loves you and wants a relationship or family connection with you. He wants to take care of you like a Father cares for his children.

4. Understanding that it is easy to have that connection with God by believing that Jesus died for your sins/wrongdoings and that He showed his power over sin and death by coming back to life. You just need to admit that you have committed sin/wrongdoings and that you need Jesus to forgive you and ask Him to come live in your heart.
What We Believe
Exalting - Equipping - Evangelizing
The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired by God.

There is one and only one living and true God. …The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son (Jesus) and Holy Spirit.

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification.

Baptism and Lord's Supper
Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water. …It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Saviour, the believer's death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. The Lord's Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members … memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.

God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. It is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood or adoption. Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime.
