JESUS CHRIST
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ (the Word) who manifested as the Son of God and came down from Heaven to earth to die for the salvation of mankind and as a result has been given equal honour with God. (John 1:1, John 1:10-12)

THE HOLY SPIRIT

THE NAME JESUS
We believe in the superiority of the name of Jesus over every other name and its corresponding saving power. (Philippians 2:9-10, Proverbs 18:10)

BIRTH, DEATH AND RESURRECTION
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ was born to the earth in the fullness of time, made his dwelling among men and then was crucified for our sins. He rose for our justification and ascended to Heaven and is seated in equal standing with the Father. (John 11:25, Romans 4:25)
