Hosea 2:15 says “There I will give her back her vineyard, and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope.”
Statement of faith
We believe the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is one infinite and perfect God, who reveals Himself in three distinct and equal persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (John 1:1-4, Matt 1:23, Mark 16:9, 19, Heb 7:25, Matt 26:64). He is a personal God and He created us (Gen 1&2). God is a living God (Ex 3:14). God is love (1 John 4:7-21). God is infinite. He is “the first and the last” and the “Alpha and Omega” (Rev 1:8). He is Holy and Almighty (Isa. 6:1-4). He is kind, just and righteous (Jer 9:24). He is the truth (John 17:17). God is transcendent and immanent (Isa 55:8-9).
Man and Sin
We believe men and women are created in the image of God (Gen 1:26-27) but through disobedience, humans fell and became separated from God (Gen 2:17, 3:22-24). All men and women are born with a sinful nature (Rom 3:23) and no one does good, not even one (Ps 14:1-3)! The acts of the sinful nature are obvious and humans are struggling with sin (Gal. 5:19, Rom 1:28-31, Rom 7:7-24).
We believe the sixty-six books of the Bible are the only infallible and authoritative word of God. It is a divine inspiration. (Psalms 119:160; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
Atonement and Salvation
We believe the Gospel is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes. Jesus, as a flawless lamb, takes away the sin of the world (John 1:29) and He makes atonement for the sins of the people (Heb 2:17). The atonement was achieved through His blood and His love. Any person who repents of his sin and trusts in Jesus will be saved by God’s grace and not by their works (John 3:16, 14:6; Acts 4:12).
The people of god
We believe the people of Israel are God’s chosen people whom He loves. God made an irrevocable covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob through whom all the families of the world will be blessed (Genesis 12:1-3). In the end time, God’s particular calling for the people of Israel is to be the redeemed remnant of Israel, to be a testimony to His faithfulness in the last days, when Jesus comes again, and all Israel will be saved (Rom 11:26).
We believe that God’s redemptive plan will be finished by the return of Jesus. The final judgment will happen, evil will be punished, and the faithful will be rewarded (Matt 25:31-33). Messiah will reign over his kingdom from Jerusalem in fulfillment of the Abrahamic and Davidic covenants. The new Jerusalem will come down and God will dwell among the people forever (Revelation 21).
