Statement of Faith

What we believe

About God; We believe God is the Creator and Ruler of the Universe. He eternally exist in three personalities. The Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are ONE God.

About Jesus Christ; We believe in the deity of our Lord and Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His person, future return to this earth in power and glory to rule a thousand years.

About the Holy Spirit; The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He indwells all believers. He provides the Christen with power for living, understanding of Spiritual Truth and guidance in doing what is right. He gives to every believer at least one Spiritual Gift. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily. We also believe that the Holy Spirit empowers whom He pleases for service within the Kingdom regardless of gender or race.

About the Bible; We believe the Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by holy men of God under the supernational guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian Belief and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture or error.

About Human Beings; People are made in the spiritual image of God to be like Him in character and to have fellowship with God and man. But sin has separated people from God and has and does cause many problems in the lives of mankind.

About Salvation; Salvation is God’s free gift to human beings who have sinned against God and are under judgement. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved; and not by self-improvement or good works, Eternal life begins the moment one receives Christ into his life by faith.

Baptism/ Communion; We believe that water baptism by immersion and Communion are ordinances to be observed by the church. They are not however to be confused with or regarded as means of salvation. The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only grounds for justification and salvation. We will as at the request of parents dedicate an infant but this does not replace or substitute for baptism. We believe all person once they come to understand and become believers should be baptized by the immersion in water.

The Church; We believe that the Church consists of the individuals that have been called out, chosen and have accepted the gift of salvation. The church is the body of Christ in the earth to maintain and expand the Kingdom of God until He returns.

Five-Fold Ministry; We believe that upon Jesus’ ascension into Heaven he gave gifts unto men; Apostles, Prophets, Evangelist, Pastors and Teachers, for the perfecting of the Saints for the work of the Ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ; til we all come in the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God.
