Ours is a congregation, which desires to reflect the preeminence of Christ in all things through the power of the Holy Spirit unto the glory of God the Father.
So we preach Christ crucified in all of Scriptures as the only Redeemer of the world, able to forgive us of our sins, no matter how big or many; able to transform us, no matter how broken or vile; able to unite us, no matter how diverse our backgrounds; and able to give us true joy and peace, no matter what our circumstances may be.
We believe that our mission is impossible apart from the life-giving, life-transforming power of the Holy Spirit, which is made available to us through prayer.

The Bible speaks of God's plan of redemption, which goes beyond the benefits that religions and philosophies and self-help literature can offer us, beyond merely helping us fix our bad habits, or cope with the sufferings and tragedies of life. Because God made us body and soul, and because both our body and soul were corrupted by the Fall, not only our soul but also our body has to be redeemed from sin and death. For death is not just the natural end of man's life: it is also the wages of sin (Rom. 6:23). That is why the Son of God had to come in the flesh and die, bearing the guilt and punishment of our sin. And having buried our sin in His death, He rose again from the dead in glory unto eternal life.
Unlike other religions, Christianity does not just promise eternal life or heaven and make us wait until after we die to find out. Jesus' death and resurrection is a historical evidence that death has been indeed conquered and we shall be redeemed both body and soul on the appointed day! Death will be swallowed up by immortality. This body of weakness will be raised with a body imperishable. Our sufferings in this world, no matter how great, cannot be compared to the magnitude of glory that awaits us. And our labor, even our smallest act of kindness in Jesus' name, will not be in vain. So, having encountered the risen Christ, this doubting Thomas went all the way to India to proclaim the gospel of the risen Christ and in doing so died a martyr's death. And Christianity has continued to exist and the Indian Christians have kept their faith in that land of Hinduism for the past two thousand years!
