What We Believe

The entire Bible is the inspired, only infallible and authoritative Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16). Both Jesus and the apostles proclaimed that the Bible is the inspired word of God. It is important to keep in mind that the Scripture is of Divine origin, written through man.

 

There is one God, eternally existing in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; and that these three are co-equal and co-eternal, having precisely the same nature and attributes. Matthew 3:16, 17; Matthew 28:19, 20; Mark 12:29; John 1:14; Acts 5:3, 4; 2 Corinthians 13:14.

 

We believe that Jesus was begotten by the Holy Spirit (Matthew 1:18-23); is the Son of God because God is His father (Luke 1:26-35). His mother, Mary, was a virgin before He was born. She had not known man. God, the Father, by means of the Holy Spirit caused the Seed to grow in Mary’s womb.

 

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died as a substitute for us and that the only means of being cleansed from sin and to be saved is through repentance and faith in the redemptive work of Jesus. (Acts 2:38-39).

 

We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. He was buried, and He was raised from the dead on the third day (1 Corinthians 15:4). His ascendance into heaven and His present life as our High Priest (Hebrews 4:15-16).

 

We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit, empowering and equipping believers for service with the accompanying supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:4-11)

 

We believe in the God given fivefold ministry of the Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher; that these remain active and valid offices in the church today for the equipping of the saints. (Ephesians 4:11-12).

 

We believe in the resurrection of both the just and the unjust, the eternal blessedness of the redeemed, and the eternal banishment of those who have rejected the offer of salvation. (Hebrews 9:27).

 

We believe that the one true Church is the whole company of those who have been redeemed by Jesus Christ (Revelation 5:9-10). We believe that divine healing and deliverance from bondage forms an integral part of the Gospel (Acts 5:16).

 

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ appointed two ordinances namely The Lord’s Supper (1 Corinthians 11:23-26) and the Baptism by immersion in water. (Matthew 28:19)
