THE Bible is the Word of God. It was inspired by God (2 Timothy 3: 16), choosing some men to write it (2 Peter 1: 21). We believe in the verbal and plenary inspiration, every word is inspired by God and all parts of the Bible are inspired by God. The Bible is the final authority for the man, and his only rule of faith and practice. It is more than sufficient to the man (2 Timothy 3:16-17) and is infallible and without error in its original (Proverbs 30:5) (John 10:35).
God is the creator of heaven and earth and all things visible and invisible (Genesis 1-2). God is spirit (John 4:24) and its attributes are: Love (1 John 4:8), Sovereign (Daniel 4:35), Eternal (Psalm 90:2), Infinity (1 Kings 8:27), Holy (Leviticus 11:44, Isaiah 6:3), Omnipotent (Genesis 17:1, Exodus 6:3), Omnipresent (Psalm 139:7-11), Omniscient (Acts 15:18), Just (Psalm 11:07, Psalm 19:9), Immutable (Malachi 3:6, Jacques 1:17).
God is unique and exists eternally in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit and each person is fully God (Deut. 6:4, John 6:27, 1 Peter 1:2, John 1:1, Titus 2:13, 1 John 5:20, Acts 5:3-4).
Jesus Christ is the God-man (John 1:1,14, 1 Tim 3:16), he was born of a virgin (Matthew 1:18-25), and was conceived by the Holy Spirit (Luke 1:35). Christ was the lamb prepared for salvation even before the foundation of the world (1 Peter 1:19). Only he can save humanity (Acts 4:12. John 14: 6), he died, was buried and rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, to bring salvation to the humanity (1 Cor 15:1-4). Christ defeated sin and Satan on the cross (Colossians 2:13-15) and death (Acts 2:24). After his resurrection he ascended into heaven (Acts 1:9-10) and sat at the right hand of God (Mark 16:19). It was the perfect sacrifice for our sins (Leviticus 16, Hebrews 2:17, Hebrews 9:7, 12). It is our justification with God (Rom 3:24-26, 5:1).
The Holy Spirit is a person (Acts 13:2, Acts 5:3-4, Ephesians 4:30, Acts 7:51, 1 Cor. 2 :10-11). He convinces the world of sin, righteousness and judgment (John 16:7-11), He is the Helper sent by Jesus Christ to the believers (John 16:7). At the moment of salvation he resides in the believer forever (John 14:16). We are joined by Him in the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:13). It is the guarantee of all the promises of God (2 Cor 1:22, Eph 1:13, Eph 4:30). He regenerates the believer to a new birth (John 3:6), He provides spiritual gifts to all believers (1 Cor. 12, Roma 14). He is the agent of sanctification of the believers (1 Cor. 2:13, 1 Peter 1:2), He guides and teaches them (John 14:26, Rom 8:14) and He intercedes for them (Rom. 8: 26). His desire is to control the life of the believer (Ephesians 5:18).
It was created by God from the dust of the earth (Genesis 2:7), without sin (Ecclesiastes 7:29, Gen 1:31)in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:27). Man is composed by a material part (body) and immaterial part (soul and spirit) (1 Thessalonians 5: 23).
The man fell into sin in the Garden of Eden by disobeying an order from God (Gen. 3). The consequences were a separation immediate and eternal from God (Isaiah 59:2, Rom 6:23) which resulted in both spiritual and physical death (Rom. 5:12) and eternal condemnation (John 5:24, Apocalypse 20:15). Sin was transmitted to all humanity with their consequences (Rom 5:12, 3:23).
The Bible teaches that man is lost and condemned for his sin (Rom. 3: 23. 6:23). There is nothing that man can do to be saved, but may be saved only by the grace of God (Ephesians 2:8-9). In his love and grace, God has planned and started the salvation for men through Jesus Christ (Titus 3:4-7).
Salvation is a gift of God (John 3:16 Rom 6:23 b) and universal to all men (John 3:16, 1 Tim 2:4). To receive the free salvation of God, man must recognize sinner and repent (Acts 3:19, 17:30, 20:20) and accept Jesus as his only Savior (Acts 16: 31, John 1: 12 ).
The blessings of the salvation are Peace with God (Rom 5:1), a new life (Corinthians 5: 17, Rom 6 :3-5), freedom from condemnation (Rom 8:1), eternal life (John 5:24), adoption by God as one of his children (John 1:12), free admission to the grace of God (Rom 5:2), heavenly blessings (Ephesians 1:5-8), a promise of resurrection in a glorified body (1 Cor 15:51-53) be eternally with God in heaven (John 14:2-3).
The church is a local congregation of believers in Christ that were baptized in accordance with the Scriptures (Acts 2:41-47). Christ is the founder (Matthew 16:18), the fondation (1 Corinthians 3:10-12, 1 Peter 2 :4-8) and the head of the Church (Ephesians 5:23). The church is the body of Christ (Ephesians 5:23), the bride of Christ (2 Cor 11:2, Rev 19:7, 21:2, Ephesians 5 :22-23). His government is congregational, authority rests with members of the Church (Acts 6:3-4, Matthew 18 :15-18), His responsibility is to glorify God by edifying believers (Ephesians 4:11) and evangelizing the lost around the world (Mark 16:15). Its officers are pastors (Hebrews 13:7,13) also called elders or bishops (Acts 20:17,28, 1 Peter 5 :1-4, Titus 1: 7) and deacons (Acts 6 :1-5 , 1 Timothy 3 :8-10).
His ordinances are baptism Biblical (Matthew 28:19) that symbolizes and identifies the believer with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus (Rom 6:3-5), and the Lord's Supper (1 Cor. 11:23 -26), which commemorates Christ's death and the announcement of his return.
They have the assurance of their salvation, being kept by the power of God (John 10:27-29, 1 Peter 1 :3-5). They must glorify God in everything (1 Cor 10:31), meet faithfully to the church (Hebrews 10:25), grow spiritually until the fullness of Christ (Ephesians 4: 13-14). Love one another (John 15:12), use their spiritual gift (1 Peter 4:10-11), obeying the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), be transformed into the image of Christ (Rom 8:29) and live separated from the world and things of this world (John 2:16, Jacques 4:8).
We believe that God calls believers to live a life characterized by personal and ecclesiastical separation. We must refrain from anything that might contaminate or bring shame upon the name of Christ. We are called to live lives characterized by holiness and purity. The churches are called to abstain from cooperation or alliances with groups that do not support and defend the truths revealed in the Word of God. Therefore, we do not accept the positions reflected in the ecumenical movement, neo-evangelism or the varied expressions of the charismatic movement. We believe that fellowship and cooperation shall be limited to those of similar beliefs (Rom. 16:17, 1 Cor. 6:19-20, 2 Cor. 6:14-17, 1 Thess. 5:22, 2 Thess. 3 : 6, 14-15, 1 John 2:15, 17; 2 John 9, 10).
They were created by God (Psalm 148:5) they were created without sin (Gen. 1:31, Jude 6). Some have stayed with God (1 Tim 5:21), others rebelled against God and will be sentenced (1 Peter 2:24). They are spirits (Heb 1:14), They are immortal (Luke 20:36). Their function is to worship God (Isa 6:3, Psalm 148 :1-2), and are messengers of God (Psalm 103:20).
It was created by God as a cherub (Ezekiel 28:14), he was created perfect (Ezekiel 28:15). In his pride he has sinned against God (1 Tim 3:6, Ezek 28:17, Isa 14:13) and become the enemy of God and the people of God (Gen 3, 1 Peter 5:7). It has some power limited by God (Job 1).He is the god of this world (2 Corinthians 4:4), He is the father of lies (John 8:44), was defeated by Jesus (1 John 3:8, Heb 2:14) and will be punished eternally in the lake of fire (Apo 20:10).
They are angels who rebelled against God (2 Peter 2:4), they rebelled with Satan (Matt. 25:41). Some are free and active (Eph 6:11-12), others are confined (2 Peter 2:4). They are evil spirits and unclean (Matthew 10:1, Luke 7:21). They are instruments of the devil to fight against the people of God (Ephesians 6 :10-12). They were defeated by Christ on the cross (Col. 2:15) and will be thrown into eternal fire forever (Matt. 25: 41).
The believers wait the rapture of the church (1 Thessalonians 4:13-16), which will be before the tribulation (Apo. 3:10). After removing will be a period of 7 years on earth (Daniel 9:24-27), where is the tribulation described in Apocalypse 6 to 18. While the tribulation will take place on earth, the church in heaven go before the tribunal of Christ (Rom 14:10, 2 Cor 5:10) and participate in the wedding of the Lamb (Apocalypse 19:7-10 ).
In the second coming of Christ on earth (Matthew 24:29-30 Apo, 1:7), He will judge all nations (Matthew 25:31-32), and win and tie Satan for 1000 years (Apocalypse 20:2), then establish the kingdom millennium with his saints (Apocalypse 20:4-6).
After 1000 years Satan will be released for a short time, (Apocalypse 20:27), to deceive the nations and gather them in the final battle against Christ (Apocalypse 20:8-9). Satan will be thrown into the fire for all eternity (Apocalypse 20:10), then the White Throne Judgment (Apocalypse 20:11-15), the creation of new heavens and a new earth (Apo. 21), and finally, all the saved in the eternity with God.
