Our Believe

Our Believe

What We Believe At CREPA

We believe that the entire Scripture, both Old and New Testament are written by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit (2 Tim 3:16—17). All the Christian teachings and attitude of the children of God are such as are established in the Holy Bible (2 Tim 3-10-15; 2 Peter 1:21; John 17:17; Psalms 119:105) We believe that the Bible is the written and revealed will of God. It explains man’s position to God, the way to obtain salvation, the woe and destruction awaiting sinners that refuse to repent and have the everlasting joy that is kept for the born-again souls. All the Bible teachings are holy. What the Bible reveals as the will of God should be accepted. Whatever God writes in the Bible and His laws are to remain unchangeable; for the Heavens and Earth may pass away but the word of God stands forever (Deut 4:22; Rev. 22:18; Matt 24:34-38).


About God

Psalms 33:6-9. As revealed unto us by the Bible, we believe that there is only one true God, who is the Creator of both visible and invisible creatures (Genesis 1:1; Psalms 86:9-10; Isaiah 43:10-11; John 1:1-3). Only God will be in existence forever. He is the maker and creator of all things and established everything with a blood covenant (Ezra 3:4). In God every creature receives life (John 5:26).


About Jesus Christ

We believe that He is the Son of God who took away our sins; and the Savior of the world. We also believe that Jesus is God and was born by the virgin Mary. He is God revealed in the flesh. Through Him, all things were created that are in Heaven and on Earth (John 1:1-14; John 14:9; Matt 1:18-25; Isaiah 9:6; Isaiah 53:5-6). We believe in His death on the Cross, and resurrection, by which He brought redemption. He is the author of a new covenant through His blood (Col 1:12-14; Isaiah 53:4-10; 1 Peter 2:24; John 10:11; Galatians 3:13; Matt 20:28; 1 Cor. 15:3; Romans 4:25; 2 Cor. 5:14; Heb 2:9, 9:26).


About the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Godhead. He has the same power, the same glory with God the Father and God the Son (John 14:16-17; John 15:26; Matt 3:16; Acts 13:24). He is in line with the Father and the Son who is to be worshiped and serve. Three-in-one are the source of blessings to all the living creatures in heaven and on earth (Matt 28:19; 2 Cor 13:14; 1 John 1:5-7). The Holy Spirit teaches, speaks to men and bears witness in us (Acts 16:6-7). He performs the work of sanctification in the born-again souls until they are fully sanctified (John 16:8; Eph 1:17-19; 2 Thess. 2:13; 1 Cor 6:11). The Holy Spirit endows believers with ministry gifts (1 Cor 12:7); and empower believers in the Lord (Acts 1:8).


About the Trinity

The egg is comprised of three parts: The yellowish yolk, the whitish part, and the shell. Despite these three (3) substances, the egg is not three but one. Likewise, we believe that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost are one God, but made up of three persons—hence they are ONE IN TRINITY (Gen 1:16-29; Matt 3:16-17; Matt 18:19)


About the Devil

We believe that there is a devil, who seeks the downfall of every man. He brought sickness, sin, and death into the world (Gen 3:1-16). He seeks the destruction of those who exercise their faith in the Lord Jesus (Matt. 4:1-11; James 4:7; I Peter 5:8). The devil has several unclean spirits over whom he governs. We believe that by redemption he does not have power over a believer in Christ Jesus (Matt. 12:24; Luke 10:91). A time would soon come when he shall be thrown into the pit and chained for one thousand years (Rev. 20:7-9). After this, he will be put into the lake of fire where he will remain suffering together with his followers forever and ever (Rev. 20:10).


About Man

Gen. 1:26. God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul (Genesis 2:7). Therefore man is of three parts, namely body, soul, and spirit. Man is God’s ambassador on earth to take control over all other creatures on His behalf on earth (Genesis. 1: 26-28). God allows man to take part in His work and thereby reveals His love for mankind more than any other creatures (Genesis 2:15). This also shows how God elevated man more than the other creatures upon the earth.


Repentance unto God

Repentance is the sorrow of ungodly man from his sins by which he makes the choice to accept Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour (Act 3:19; 20:21; 2 Cor. 7:10; Mark 1:15; Is. 55:7; 2 Chron. 7:14; Ezek. 18:21.)


Justification or New Birth

This is God’s grace whereby we are cleansed from our sins by which we are able to stand before God as though we have never sinned. (Act 13:39; Rom. 3:25-26; Rom 5:1; I Cor.6:11; Gal. 3:24; John 1:12-13; 3:3; 2 Cor. 5:9; Titus 3:5; 2 Peter 1:23; Act 10:43; John 3:3,5.)


Sanctification (Holiness)

Sanctification is another grace of God by which our souls are completely cleansed as we dwell in the word of God. This is the second accomplishment of the grace which through our faith in the Blood of Jesus Christ is wrought after we have been justified and free from our sins or regenerated. (John 17:15-17; I Thess. 4:3; Heb. 2:11; 12:14; 13:12; I John 1:7; Luke 1:74, 75; II Cor. 7:1; I Peter 1:16; Eph.5 :25-27; 1 Thess. 5:23-24; 2 Thess. 2:13)
