 Statement Of Faith

 

  • We believe in one God who is eternal in His existence, Triune in His manifestation, being Father son and Holy Ghost AND that He is sovereign and absolute in His authority.
  • We believe in a Father who is God Himself, Creator of the universe. (Gen 1:1; John 1:1)
  • We believe that Jesus is the Son of God (Luke 3:21-22),  He suffered, died, was buried, and rose from the dead for our complete salvation (Philippians 2:5-11).
  •  We believe that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Him. (John 14:6 )
  • We believe in the Holy Spirit who is God indwelling, empowering and regenerating the believer. This Holy Spirit is called the Comforter, the Spirit of truth, the counsellor and teacher (John 14:17, 14:26).
  • We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ atones for our sins and iniquity. (Romans 5:9-11; Ephesians 1:7; Revelation 12:11)
  • We believe that there is an opportunity for everyone to have a personal and intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. (John 3:16; )
  •  
  • We believe that the Bible is the true infallible Word of God, which cleanses our souls. (John 1:14; 2 Timothy 3: 16-17)
  •  We believe that we are justified through faith. (Gal 5:5)
  • We believe that salvation is free and is a result of the sovereign grace of God. (Eph 2:8-9,  Rom 5:1)
  •  We believe in worshipping the Lord in spirit, song, and dance and with the raising of our hands. We believe that we are to praise and worship Him with our whole being (Psalms 150:1-6; John 4:24).
  • We believe that selflessly living and the pursuit of a holy life should be the goal of every believer. (Heb 12:14, Phil 3:14)
  • We believe that believers should be water baptized. It is through baptism that we publicly identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:11-14; Acts 2:38)
  • We believe that all Christians need to partake in the communion elements which represent the Lord Jesus’ body and blood. It is by participating in the Lord’s Supper that we proclaim His death until His return. (John 6:53-58; 1 Corinthians 11:23-30).
  • It is our goal to go into the entire world and preach the gospel to every living being. (Mark 16:15-18)
