What  we  believe

The Scriptures of the Old and New Testament in their original form as fully inspired by God, and accepts them as the final Authority for faith and life.

-  In one God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. That the Lord Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary,  and is true God and true man.

That God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.(Genesis 1:27); that man and woman sinned and thereby incurred the penalty of death;     physical and spiritual and that all human beings inherit a sinful nature which issues in actual transgression involving personal guilt.

That the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, a substitutionary sacrifice, according to the Scriptures, and that all who believe and trust in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood.

In the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, His ascension into heaven, and His present life as our High Priest and Advocate.

In the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

-  In the personality of the Holy Spirit, His regenerating work and His abiding presence in the true believer.

-  All who repent of their sins and receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and therefore become children of God.

-  That all Christians are called to a life of holiness, devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ and service to Him.

-  In the resurrection both of the just and unjust, the eternal blessedness of the redeemed, and the eternal banishment from God of those who have rejected the offer.

That the whole company of those who have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour, been redeemed by Him and regenerated by the Holy Spirit form the one true Church, and that the local church on earth should take its character from this concept. Therefore, the new birth and personal confession of faith in Christ are essentials of church discipleship.

-  That the Holy Spirit indwells all true believers and that He has been sent to be Comforter and Empowerer of the Christian Church, to produce the Fruit of the Holy Spirit and the Gifts of the Holy Spirit according to the Scriptures.

-  In the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

In the Priesthood of all believers.

-  In traditional marriage (Genesis 1:27; Genesis 2:18-25; Mark 10:16). We believe that God has ordained a marriage covenant (Malachi 2:14), as a sacred Institution, for the lifelong relationship between one man as husband and one woman as wife.

-  That the Lord Jesus Christ appointed two ordinances – Baptism and the Lord’s table – to be observed as acts of obedience and as a perpetual witness to the cardinal facts of the Christian faith; that baptism is the full immersion of the believer in water as a confession of identification with Christ in burial and resurrection, and that the Lord’s table involves partaking of the bread and the cup as symbols of the Saviour’s broken body and shed blood, in remembrance of His sacrificial death till His return.

-  That the healing of the sick is still available in our day (Mark 16:16-18; Matthew 8:16-17; 1 Corinthians 12:9 and James 5:14-15)

-  That God never removed the gifts of the Holy Spirit from the Church and that the Scriptural commands to “seek earnestly the best gifts” and to “forbid not to speak in tongues” are still applicable today (1 Corinthians 12, 13 and 14.)

-  That the ascended Christ has given various ministries or ministers to the Church in order to bring all believers to the place of Christian maturity in understanding of the truth, and the performance and function of the ministry. (Ephesians 4:11; Romans 12:4-8 and 1 Corinthians 12:10)

-  That the miracles recorded in the Bible were real miracles and are possible in the present day. (John 14:12 and 1 Corinthians 12:10)
