1. A God-Centered Church
We believe that there is only one living and true God. God is the
Spirit, self-existent, and omnipresent. God is infinite and eternal
in his being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness and truth,
and unchangeable in his being. We believe in the Trinity: the Father,
the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are one being and equal in power
2. A Christ-Centered Church
Jesus Christ is the only redeemer of the world. Jesus Christ is
the sinless Son of God who was conceived by the power of the Holy
Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. Jesus Christ possessed two distinctive
natures, one fully divine and the other fully human, but he was
one person. He was crucified on the cross in place for our sins,
died and was buried. On the third day, he rose again from the dead,
ascended to heaven where he is sitting at the right hand of God
and will come to judge the world.
3. A Holy Spirit-Centered Church
We believe the Holy Spirit empowers us to be born again through
acceptance of Jesus Christ as our Savior and confession of Jesus
Christ as Lord. The Holy Spirit emboldens us to become children
of God who demonstrate God's love toward each other. The Holy Spirit
works in us to live more holy lives. We also believe that the mission
of Christians is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ with the help
of the Holy Spirit.
4. A Bible-Centered Church
We believe that the Holy Scripture of the Old and New Testaments
is the inspired and inherent Word of God. It empowers us to understand
God's salvation and provides instructions for us to become righteous
as the children of God. We believe the Holy Scripture is the authoritative
Word of God without error. All scripture is a testimony to Jesus
5. A Gospel-Centered Church
Salvation is not earned through philosophy, religion, beliefs,
or good works. Salvation is a God's free gift to us. It is offered
in grace and received by faith in the substitutionary death of Jesus
Christ on the cross as payment for our sin. Therefore, we believe
that we receive eternal life with faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord,
reverence and love for God and obedience to the Holy Spirit.
6. A Mission-Centered Church
We have a vision of fulfilling Jesus Christ's Great Commission
to Go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19) by being
personal witnesses for Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth. We
believe God's ultimate purpose is to transform the world by building
God's Kingdom through works of disciples. Therefore, we are committed
to go anywhere of the world where there had not yet been any proclamation
of the gospel of Jesus Christ to expand God's Kingdom.
7. Education for 2nd Generation-Centered Church
We believe that in the 21st century, the mission of Korean churches
will assume bigger responsibilities. We are certain that the future
of immigrant churches and Korean immigrant churches will depend
on the role of our second generation. Therefore, in preparation
for those times, our first generation must determine how the second
generation will be trained to become true disciples of Jesus Christ.
Thus, our pastors and Sunday school teachers are devoted to educating
our children of all ages, from preschoolers to college students.
Our goal is to train and equip committed disciples imbued with the
Word of God and the desire to lead a new generation.
