Statements of Doctrinal Beliefs
1) We believe in the inspiration of the accepted canon of Scriptures as originally given. The Scriptures are infallible, inerrant as the sole
and final authority for all matters of faith and conduct (1Corinthians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:16).
2) We believe in the Eternal Godhead who has revealed Himself as One God existing in Three Persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14).
3) We believe in the creation and fall of man as recorded in Genesis; his total spiritual depravity and inability to attain to Divine righteousness (Romans 5:12, 18).
4) We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Saviour of man, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, very God and very Man (Isaiah 7:14, 9:6 , Luke 1:26-35; John 1:14-18).
5) We believe Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again on the third day, and personally appeared unto His disciples
(Romans 4:25; 1 Corinthians 15:1-14).
6) We believe in the bodily ascension of Jesus to Heaven, His exaltation as well as personal, literal and bodily coming again the second time for His Church (John 14:2, 3 and 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).
7) We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work at the cross of Calvary by which we obtain remission of sins (; Romans 5:11; Ephesians 2:8,9; Hebrews 9:12, 22).
8) We believe in the necessity of water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Eternal Godhead in order to fulfil the command of the Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19; Acts2:38-41; 19:1-6).
9) We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as a real experience at or subsequent to salvation, with the usual Scriptural evidence of speaking in tongues and praising God (Acts 2:1-4; 8:14-17; 10:44-46; Galatians 3:14-15).
10) We believe in the operation of the Gifts and ministries of the Holy Spirit as enumerated in Romans 12: 1-8; 1 Corinthians 12: 1-13; and Ephesians 4: 11-13 as manifested in the Early Church.
11) We believe in the spirit-filled life, a life of dying to self, separation from the world and perfecting of holiness in the fear of God as expressing the true Christian faith (2 Corinthians 6:14; 7:1; Ephesians 5:18;).
12) We believe in the healing of the body by Divine power or divine healing in its varied aspects as practised in the early Church (Acts 4:30; Romans 8:11; 1Corinthians 12:9; James 5:14).
13) We believe in the table of the Lord, commonly called the Holy Communion or the Lord’s Supper, for believers (Matthew 26:26-28; 1 Corinthians 11:23-32;).
14) We believe in the reality and personality of the devil and eternal judgement in the Lake of Fire for the devil and his angels (Matthew 25:41; Revelation 20:10, 14-15).
15) We believe in eternal life for believers (John 3:16-18; 5:24), and eternal punishment for the unbelievers (2 Thessalonians 1:9; 2:10-15; Rev. 20:14-15)
16) We believe that there is one true Universal Church, made up of genuine believers, but this one Universal Church is also composed of many Local Churches in given localities. These Churches are under the sovereign Headship of the Lord Jesus Christ, exercising autonomous government under Him, administrating all its local affairs and ministry, as well as the propagation of the Gospel (Matthew 16:18; 18:15-20; Acts 15:22)
