GLS believes in One God, the creator of heaven and earth, of things visible and invisible, the Almighty and Triune God eternally existent as three distinct persons co-equal and same in essence – Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.
GLS believes in The Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, Light of Light, true God of true God, begotten and not made.
He is of the very same essence of the Father and by Him all things came into being, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible. For salvation of humanity He came down from heaven, fully God and fully man, born of the virgin Mary by the Holy Spirit.
Having lived a perfect and holy life He suffered, was crucified, buried and rose again bodily on the third day, ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father. He is to come again in glory to establish His millennial kingdom on earth and to judge the living and the dead.
GLS believes that Lord Jesus Christ is the only Savior of mankind.
GLS believes in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, co-equal with the Father and Son, who spoke through the Law, prophets, and Gospels, preached through the apostles and lives in every believer and distributes gifts to all believers in the church according to His will, for the benefit of all.
GLS believes in the Bible to be inerrant, divinely inspired, infallible, supreme and only authoritative written Word of God. It is also final in its authority in matters of faith and practice in all aspects of life.
GLS believes in the plenary and verbal inspiration of the Bible consisting of only 66 books with 39 in the Old Testament and 27 in the New Testament.
GLS believes that Mankind created by God in His own image and likeness fell into sin by disobedience and was separated from God.
Salvation for mankind is by grace alone – by repentance and faith in Jesus Christ as the only personal Lord and Savior.
GLS believes that Salvation is only by repentance for sin and faith in Jesus Christ. And this results in a changed life that is marked by holy living – according to God’s will.
GLS believes in One Universal and Holy Church, consisting of believers from the Day of Pentecost to the Pre-millennial Coming of Christ who have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior by faith and have been baptized into one body by the Holy Spirit, irrespective of nationality, caste and the Christian group that they are affiliated to – and local churches are manifestations of it.
GLS believes that Christian Life in essence is leading a life that brings glory and honor to God. Loving God with all our heart, soul, spirit and mind and serving fellow human beings with care and compassion are inherent parts of Christian life.
GLS believes that the Kingdom of God will be the millennial rule of Christ on earth, when every force that resists God will be defeated.
While God is sovereign over the whole universe, the Kingdom of God is currently manifest in the spiritual realm among believers, who have accepted the offer of salvation and lordship of Jesus Christ in their lives and will be consummated when Christ returns to the earth in all His glory.
We believe in the resurrection of the just and the unjust, the eternal blessedness of the redeemed by Christ and the eternal punishment of those, who reject the offer of salvation and that just as the reward is conscious, so is the punishment.
