We believe the
Bible is the inspired Word of God, the product of holy men who wrote
as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.
(II Peter 1:20, 21)
We believe our
God is one, yet manifested in three persons: the Father, the Son
and the Holy Spirit.
his fall and redemption
Man is created

The Lord Jesus
Christ will return to the earth, and His coming is imminent. When
He comes, the dead in Christ shall rise first, then those who are
alive shall be caught up together with them to meet the Lord in
