Our Belief

Our Statement of Beliefs

 

We believe Lord Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit,
born of the virgin, Mary, and is God Anointed One. There is one God, and one mediator also
between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; (I Timothy 2:5). All who seek restoration and
fellowship with God must go through Jesus and cannot approach God through any person, spirit
or doctrine. We are saved by God grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
(Isaiah 53:4-6, John 1:1-14, John 14:6, Colossians 2:13-15, 1 Corinthians 15:20).

We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God. We
believe in the Divine inspiration and authority of the 66 books of the Holy Bible as the complete
canon of God testimony to mankind. We are committed to esteeming Scripture as the very
Word of God, inerrant in its original form. We do not accept any doctrine which contradicts
Scripture. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21)

We believe that water baptism should be by immersion and accomplished after commitment to
the Lordship of Jesus and His atoning sacrifice for our sin. This ordinance is a personal and
public statement of faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ on our behalf, and is
a commitment to lay down our lives to be one with Him in His death, burial and resurrection.

We believe  that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us we need to be
baptised in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to use
spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues (Mark 16:16, Acts 1:8, Acts 2:4, Galatians 5:22-23).

We believe  that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews 13:8) and
that His ministry in and through the church by the Holy Spirit has not changed from the
beginning. We accept, acknowledge, encourage and seek all of the biblical gifts and ministries of
the Holy Spirit as present and vital for the church to accomplish her full purpose today.

We believe  that our eternal destination of either heaven or hell is determined by our response to
the Lord Jesus Christ (John 3:36, John 5:28-29, 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9, Revelation 20:11-15).

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised (John 14:1-3, Acts
1:11, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).
