We believe in:
THE ONE TRUE GOD
There is only one true God who is the eternal King, Creator and Redeemer of all that is. He is perfectly holy, just, loving and truthful. He has revealed Himself to be eternally self- existent - one being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Matt. 28:19).
The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be the inspired word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original writings, infallible and God–breathed (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Matt. 5:18; John 16:12-13).
THE PERSON AND WORK OF JESUS CHRIST
That the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful humankind (John 1:1-2, 14; Luke 1:35). We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a representative and vicarious sacrifice, and that our justification and salvation is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead (Rom. 3:24; 1 Peter 2:24; Eph. 1:7; 1 Peter 1:3–5) for all who accept and trust Him alone. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God, where, as our High Priest, he fulfills the ministry as Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate (Acts 1:9-10; Heb. 7:25, 9:24; Rom. 8:34; 1 John 2:1–2). Jesus Christ will come again to the earth, personally, visibly and bodily, to consummate history and the eternal plan of God (John 5:24, 28, 29; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 20: 12-15).
THE PERSON AND WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by who’s indwelling, the Christian is enabled to live a holy life. The Holy Spirit has come into the world to reveal and glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to all people. He convicts and draws sinners to Christ, imparts new life to them, continually indwells them from the moment of spiritual birth and seals them until the day of redemption. His fullness, power and control are appropriated in the believer's life by faith (John 16:8–11; 2 Cor. 3:6; 1 Cor.12:12–14; Rom. 8:9; Eph. 5:18). The baptism of the Holy Spirit is given to believers who ask for it (Acts 2:4).
That salvation is the gift of God brought to humankind by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins (Eph. 1:7, 2:8–10; John 1:12; 1 Peter 1:18–19). We are saved by God's grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repenting of their sins, believing and receiving Jesus as their Saviour and Lord.
The Church consists of all people, living and dead, who put their faith in Jesus Christ. (Eph. 1:22-23; 5:25–27; 1 Cor. 12:12–14; 2 Cor.11:2). He gave His church the ordinances of Baptism and Communion (Matt. 28:19-20; Acts 2:41-42; 18:8; 1 Cor. 11:23–26).The Church exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ and further advance His kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, preaching and living the good news of God's love, disciple the nations, baptizing and teaching them to love and obey God (Acts 14:27, 18:22, 20:17; 1 Tim. 3:1–3; Titus 1:5–11).
THE MINISTRY AND SPIRITUAL GIFTS
That God is sovereign in the bestowing of spiritual gifts. That particular spiritual gift(s) are neither essential, nor do they prove the presence of the Holy Spirit, nor are an indication of deep spiritual experience (1 Cor. 12:7, 11, 13; Eph. 4:7–8). We believe that God does hear and answer the prayer of faith, in accordance with His own will, for the sick and afflicted (John 15:7; 1 John 5:14-15). We believe that it is the privilege and responsibility of every believer to minister according to the gift(s) and grace of God that is given to them (Rom 12:1–8; 1 Cor. 13; 1 Peter 4:10–11) and that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and prosperous lives in order to help others more effectively (Rom 12:1–8; Gal. 6: 9-10; Eph. 2: 5-7).
