Our Fundamental of Truths
We Believe in the Bible as the rule of faith and conduct and only basis of our belief.

Creator of heaven and Earth.

(a) God The Father
He revealed himself as I AM, JEHOVA AND FATHER. The God self-sufficient with no need for anyone. Creator of man and of all that exists. (Exodus 3:14) Isaiah 42:8; Matthew 6:9).
(b) God the Son
Creator of man and everything that exists. Carried out the plan of salvation of the Humanity through his sacrifice on the cross. It is the only Mediator between God and men
