GLOBAL DISCIPLESHIP INITIATIVE

Jesus said, "Go and make disciples."

 Global Discipleship Initiative

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons. Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling presence and mission is to empower, to convict, regenerate, seal, indwell, guide, and instruct the believer for life and for service.

We believe the church consists of all those who believe in the Triune God and Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Believers are called by Jesus in "The Great Commission” to go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:18-20). They also demonstrate their faith by joining together for worship, prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the Gospel, and observance of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

We believe the Old and New Testaments to be inspired, the only infallible, authoritative word of God, complete and sufficient revelation of His will for all humankind’s salvation and conduct.

We believe people are created in the image of God. Through disobedience and self-centeredness, they incurred both physical and spiritual death. Thus, all are now born with a sinful nature, separated from God and can be saved only through the atoning work of Jesus Christ.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved—the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and unsaved unto the resurrection of eternal punishment.

We believe in the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ as both personal and visible. This is our blessed hope and serves as an incentive for holy living and faithful service.
