Mission Statement

The foundation of this church is the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 3:11; Eph. 2:20), and He guides His church in all affairs through the Holy Scriptures (Psalm 119; 2 Tim. 3:15-17). Therefore the purpose of this church is to glorify God through Jesus Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit (Isa. 43:7; Eph. 1:6, 12, 14)

Baptism

Baptism is an ordinance of the Lord Jesus, obligatory upon every believer, wherein one is immersed in water in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, as a sign of one’s fellowship with the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, of remission of sins, and of giving one up to God, to live and walk in newness of life. It is prerequisite to church membership and to participation in the Lord’s Supper (Matt. 28:19; Acts 2:38; Rom. 6:3-5; 1 Cor. 12:13).
