What we believe and teach

- Persecutions -




Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, said that if they persecuted Him, they will also persecute us His disciples. Therefore we were called to suffer for His nameís sake. In other words, we were called to partake of Christís sufferings. However we are not ashamed to suffer as a Christian, rather we praise God that we bear that name. We are fully persuaded that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which will be revealed in us on the day of Christ. So we endure patiently our sufferings and we commit our souls to our faithful Creator in doing good, because when Christ appears, then we also will appear with Him in glory, and we will be glad with exceeding joy; while those who trouble us will be repaid with tribulation.

Sufferings are useful because suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. Thatís why we consider it pure joy, when we face various trials for the Lordís sake. We must through many tribulations enter the Kingdom of God.
