Our mission and drive is to equip and mobilize God's Church to evangelize, to make disciples as in 2 Timothy 2:2, and establish His Church in remote places, among the unreached in Panama , thus fulfilling the order of Jesus to take His Gospel to all the nations (Mt 28:19:20). Being part in the fulfilment of the Great Commission.
The Word of God
We believe the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original writings, complete as a revelation of God’s nature and character, and the supreme and final authority in faith and life.
2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each person of the Trinity is fully God, sharing the same nature and attributes.
Genesis 1:26, Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19
God the Father
We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit; perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love. We believe He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, hears and answers prayer, and saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
John 16:23-27, Galatians 4:4-6, Ephesians 1:3, 17-23
God the Son
We believe that Jesus Christ is God’s eternal Son. He is true God and true man, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. We believe in His sinless life, His substitutionary atonement, His bodily resurrection from the dead, His ascension into heaven, His priestly intercession on behalf of His people, and His personal, visible, pre-millennial return from heaven.
Matthew 1:18,23; Luke 24:1-8; John 1:14; Acts 1:11; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21; Hebrews 4:14-16, 7:24-25; Revelation 19:20
God the Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity and is fully God. He regenerates, baptizes into the body of Christ, indwells every believer, guides and empowers believers, and gives gifts to all believers for the strengthening of the church.
John 3:5, 16:13; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 6:19, 12:4-13; Romans 8:1-10, 12:3-8; Ephesians 3:16, 4:11-16
MAN, CREATED AND FALLEN
We believe that man was originally created in the image and after the likeness of God. Adam fell through sin, and as a consequence of his sin, lost his spiritual life. Becoming dead in trespasses and sins, he became subject to the power of the devil. This spiritual death, or total depravity of human nature, has been transmitted to the entire human race of man, the Man Christ Jesus alone being excepted. Thus every child of Adam is born into the world with a nature which not only possesses no spark of divine life, but is essentially and unchangeably sinful apart from divine grace.(Genesis 1:26, 2:17, 6:5; Psalm 14:1-3, 51:5; Jeremiah 17:9; John 3:6, 5:40, 6:35; Romans 3:10-19, 8:6-7; Ephesians 2:1-3; I Timothy 5:6; I John 3:8).
We believe in salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone. We further believe that salvation is based upon the sovereign grace of God, was purchased by Christ on the cross, and is received by man through faith alone. Salvation results in righteous living, good works, and proper social concern.
John 1:1-12, 3:3-7, 5:24; Romans 3:21-24, 5:1-2; Ephesians 2:8-10; 1 Timothy 2:5
We believe that all those who have been redeemed by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ form the Body of Christ, the church. We also believe in the local church as the body of believers in a geographic locale who meet together to worship and serve God, observe the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper, and work together in a united effort to further the gospel of Christ. (I Corinthians 12:12-31; Ephesians 1:22-23, 4:11-16; Colossians 1:18).
THE GREAT COMMISSION
We believe the explicit message and mandate of our Lord Jesus Christ is to make disciples of all the nations. During His post-resurrection ministry Christ gave two particular commands. First in Matthew 28, Jesus commands us to “Go and Make Disciples of All the Nations”. Secondly, just before His Ascension, in Acts 1:8 we are called to be witnesses to “the remotest parts of the earth”. The greatest responsibility and privilege of the church is to serve as ambassadors and witnesses for Christ (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15; John 17:18; Acts 1:8; II Corinthians 5:18-20; I Peter 1:17, 2:11).
