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, all 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 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 16:7,8, 12-15).
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 12:22-24).
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).
