I personally thank you for visiting our website.
Our church is a place where we believe in Jesus Christ as our savior, to gather and care each others as brothers and sisters in His name.

Our church is a multicultural and multigeneration church. We come to Southern California from different ethnics in Indonesia and US and different ages. If you visit us, you are going to experience a safe and friendly atmosphere, where at the same time you can grow spritually.

Please come back often to check this website as you will be updated with more information about our Church and if you happen to be around the San Bernardino area, don't hesitate to visit us for the Sunday service or the home fellowship.

What we believe

Print

GOD - We believe there is but one living and true God, everlasting; of infinite power, wisdom, and goodness; Maker and Preserver of all things, both visible and invisible. And in the unity of this Godhead there are three persons of one substance, of eternal being, and equal in holiness, justice, wisdom, power, and dignity: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.

THE BIBLE - We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament in their entirety to be the infallible Word of God, given by inspiration of God, in the sense that the Holy Ghost gave the very words of the sacred writing to the holy men of old, and that His Divine inspiration extends fully to all parts of these writings, historical, poetical, doctrinal, and prophetic. We further believe that the Scriptures, from first to last, center about our Lord Jesus Christ, His person and work, His first and second coming; and therefore, every portion of both the Old and New Testament was ordained of God for our instruction. We fully accept the Scriptures as being free of error in the original writings, and the only infallible rule of faith and life.


MAN AND SIN - We believe that man was directly created by God in His own image, holy and upright; that through the historical fall into sin, man came under God's condemnation, and that in consequence the whole human race is dead in trespasses and sins and subject to its judgment: death and hell. We believe that this total depravity extends to every child of Adam because he is born into this world with a sinful nature. We further believe that without God's provision for salvation in His Son, Jesus Christ, no one can enter the Kingdom of God, that no degree of reformation, no educational attainment, no cultural or benevolent achievement, no religious ordinance can help a sinner toward the Kingdom.

JESUS CHRIST - We believe in Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, who became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, and that He lived a sinless life that He might reveal God. We believe He accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a substitution sacrifice for our sins, and that our redemption is made sure to us by His literal, bodily resurrection from the dead. We further believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is now in Heaven, exalted at the right hand of God, where as the High Priest for His people, He fulfills the ministry of Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate. We believe that Jesus Christ is our Lord, Savior, Sanctifier, Baptizer, Deliverer, Great Physician, and King.

SALVATION - We believe that salvation from sin is a free gift offered by God through His grace and received by personal repentance from sin and by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed for the forgiveness of our sins, and that no repentance or penance, no resolution or sincere effort, no membership in or submission to any church or its rules or regulations can in the very least add to the value of that precious blood or the merit of the redemptive work wrought on Calvary. We further believe that it is the privilege of all who are born again by the Spirit through faith in Christ, to be assured of their salvation at the time of their conversion, and that this confidence is based wholly upon the testimony of God in His written Word.

SANCTIFICATION - We believe that sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto God. The Scriptures teach a life of holiness without which no man shall see the Lord. By the power of the Holy Spirit we are able to obey the command: "Be ye holy, for I am Holy." Sanctification is realized in the believer by recognizing his identification with Christ in His death and resurrection, and by faith reckoning daily upon the fact of that union, and by offering every faculty continually to the dominion of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, we espouse the belief in the pursuit of holiness.

THE HOLY SPIRIT - We believe the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead and serves as a comforter, grants wisdom, and imparts gifts as proclaimed in Galatians 5:22-24. The full consummation of the baptism of believers in the Holy Ghost is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. With it comes the enduement of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry.
