The Missionary Church, in obedience to Jesus Christ her Lord, is committed
to being holy people of God in the world and to building His Church by
worldwide evangelism discipleship and multiplication of growing churches to
the glory of God
Scripture is our authority. The Missionary Church is committed to this basic
statement of faith.
There is but one eternal, all-powerful, all-knowing and everywhere-present
Triune God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit— who is the creator and sustainer of
all things (Deuteronomy 6:4-5; 1 Timothy 2:5).
He is God incarnate, yet human. He lived a sinless life, died to make
atonement for the sins of all mankind, was bodily resurrected and is now
mediator at the right hand of the Father. He is assuredly coming in power
and glory for His believing followers, and is the only Savior of men (John
1:1, 14; Titus 2:11-14).
He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, regenerating all
who repent of their sins and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. He
sanctifies, empowers, teaches, guides and comforts the believers (John
The Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God and thus authoritative in all
matters it addresses (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
Salvation is the result of genuine repentance of sin and faith in the
atoning work of Christ. It brings forgiveness to the penitent, makes him a
partaker of the divine nature and gives peace with God. We call this new
birth (Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 1:3-5).
We believe in the invisible and universal Church as an organism. It is
composed of all believers in the Lord Jesus who have been vitally united by
faith to Christ, its living Head and sovereign Lord (Matthew 16:18; Hebrews
We believe the Christian ordinances are two: baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
We believe they are outward rites appointed by Christ to be administered in
each church, not as a means of salvation, but as a visible sign and seal of
its reality (Acts 8:36; 1 Corinthians 11:24-34).
