WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ died on the cross and shed His blood as a substitutionary sacrifice for our sins of the world; He arose bodily from the dead in the body He was crucified, He ascended into heaven in that body glorified, where He is now, He is our High Priest; and is seated at the right hand of the Majesty on High and He will return again personally and visibility to rapture His Church / the believer to His Kingdom and to judge the quick and the dead.

(Acts 2:4, Acts 2:38, and St. Luke 11:13)
