Divinity and Humanity of Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God who by His incarnation and virgin birth took upon Himself the form of man and became the God-Man. In the one person of Christ, there are two natures, human and divine, each in its completeness and integrity. They are distinguishable but indivisible, so that He is fully man and fully God. He lived a sinless life and became the only sacrifice for the sins of the world.
(Ephesians 1:3-5; Romans 5:1-11; Acts 12:4; 1 Peter 1:18-19)
We believe that Satan is a fallen, created being who is the “god of this world.” He and his well-organized company of demons are opposed to the Kingdom of God and work to defeat and destroy the believer. While his activity is real, Satan and his demon spirits were defeated and over-thrown by Christ’s victory of the cross.
(Luke 10:17-20; Colossians 2:13-15; Ephesians 6:10-18)
We believe the Holy Spirit to be the third person of the Godhead who is active in the world today. The Spirit indwells and seals the believer at new birth. We believe the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a subsequent experience and is available to all Christians to empower us to be witnesses. We believe in and encourage, the use of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
(John 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4)
