STATEMENT OF FAITH

 

WE BELIEVE THAT THE BIBLE IN ITS ENTIRETY IS THE INSPIRED WORD OF GOD AND THE ONLY INFALLIBLE AND AUTHORITATIVE RULE OF FAITH AND CONDUCT. (2 TIMOTHY 3:16; 2 PETER 1:26)

 

​WE BELIEVE IN CHRIST'S GREAT COMMISSION TO THE CHURCH TO GO INTO ALL THE WORLD AND PREACH THE GOSPEL.

(MATTHEW 28:19)

 

WE BELIEVE IN ONE GOD, ETERNALLY EXISTENT IN THREE PERSION: FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT AND THAT IN JESUS CHRIST "DWELLETH ALL THE FULLNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY."

(COLOSSIANS 2:9; DEUTERONAMY 6:4; JOHN 10:30; JOHN14:26; JOHN 15:26; MATTHEW 28:19)

 

​WE BELIEVE IN THE DEITY OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, HIS VIRGIN BIRTH, HIS SINLESS LIFE, HIS MIRACLES, HIS VICARIOUS AND ATONING DEATH, HIS BODILY RESURRECTION, HIS ASCENSION TO THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER, AND THIS PERSONAL RETURN IN POWER AND GLORY. (1 TIMOTHY 3:16; ACTS 1:11; ROMANS 8:34)

 

WE BELIEVE IN COMPLETE SALVATION BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AND OBEDIENCE TO THE GOSPEL BY REPENTANCE OF SINS AND BAPTISM BY IMMERSION IN WATER. (EPHESIANS 2:8; ACTS 2:38; ACTS 8:35-39)

 

WE BELIEVE IN THE PRESENT MINISTRY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT BY WHOSE INDWELLING THE CHRISTIAN IS ENABLED TO LIVE A GODLY LIFE. (2 CORINTHIANS 7:1; HEBREWS 12:10-14; 1 THESSELONIANS 4:7; ROMANS 8:1-2)

 

WE BELIEVE IN THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT WITH THE EVIDENCE OF SPEAKING IN OTHER TONGUES AS THE SPIRT GIVETH UTTERANCE, AND IN THE MANIFESTATION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT OPERATIVE IN THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST.

(ACTS 2:38-39; ACTS 19:6; 1 CORINTHIANS 12:4-11)

 

WE BELIEVE IN THE OBSERVANCE OF THE LORD' SUPPER AS A MEMORIAL OF HIS BORKEN BODY AND THE NEW TESTAMENT IN HIS BLOOD. (1 CORINTHIANS 11:24-25)

 

WE BELIEVE IN THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT AND THAT ALL THE ABOVE MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY THE SPIRTUAL FRUIT OF LOVE. (GALATIANS 5:22-23)

 

WE BELIEVE IN THE FIVE FOLD MINISTIRES GOD GAVE TO HIS BODY: APOSTLES, PROPHETS, EVANGELISTS, PASTORS AND TEACHERS, "FOR THE PERFECTING OF THE SAINTS FOR THE WORK OF THE MINISTRY". (EPHESIANS 4:11-12)

 

WE BELIEVE THAT AT THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST "THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST: THEN, WE WHICH ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN SHALL BE CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THEM IN THE CLOUDS, TO MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR: AND SO SHALL WE EVER BE WITH THE LORD. (1 THESSALONIANS 4:16-17)

 

​WE BELIEVE IN THE FINAL ETERNAL JUDGMENT AT WHICH TIME THE CONDEMNED WILL BE CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE. (REVELATIONS 20:11-15)

 

WE BELIEVE THAT MARRIAGE CONSTITUTES A BOND OF LIFETIME COMMITMENT BETWEEN ONE MAN AND ONE WOMAN AND THAT IT IS THE ONLY LEGITIMATE, HONOURABLE AND HOLY ESTATE INSTITUTED BY GOD. IT WAS ORDAINED OF GOD AS THE FOUNDATION AND BOND OF FAMILY LIFE FOR THE MUTUAL HELP AND COMFORT OF HUSBAND AND WIFE, AND FOR THE WELFARE OF THE STATE. (GENESIS 2:25-26; PROVERBS 18:22; 1 CORINTHIANS 8:10; 1 CORINTHIANS 6:9-10; ROMANS 1:24-32)
