We believe the church is the spiritual body of Jesus Christ (Founder, Head and Shepherd) and it encompasses all true believers at all times and places. The function of the church is to carry out the Lord’s expressed will through the power of the Holy Spirit. One of the central purposes of the church is to preach the Gospel (in both word and life). It is the good news that human kind can find salvation from sin through faith in Jesus Christ. 
All people who have placed their faith (confident trust) in Jesus Christ for salvation belong to the church and are the people of God. The community of believers is made up of people who are neither perfect nor sinless, but by grace their lives are coming more and more under the control of the Holy Spirit, expressing His love, joy, peace and other Christ-like qualities.
