Summary of Beliefs

GOD
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He is a triune being, manifested to the world as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

JESUS CHRIST
Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  He is co-equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus was both fully God and fully human, was born of a virgin and lived a perfect, sinless human life.  He offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return someday to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is a divine person, co-equal with the Father and the Son. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He enables understanding of Biblical truth and guides in righteous living.  He provides every Christian with spiritual gifts for service.  As Christians, we should seek to live under His control daily.

THE BLOOD OF JESUS
We believe in the redeeming and the cleansing power of the Blood of Jesus Christ.

THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
Every Christian needs the Baptism of The Holy Spirit. Through the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, the Christian is empowered for effective living/witnessing.

THE BIBLE
The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.  It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.

SALVATION
All people are sinners by nature and sinners by choice and this separates them from the life of God. Only through the atoning work of Jesus Christ can anyone be saved and restored to relationship with God. Salvation is by grace through faith.  It is God’s free gift to us, but we must repent of our sins and accept it.  We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works.  Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as Lord, Saviour & redeemer can anyone be saved from the penalty of sin and be in relationship with God.

ETERNAL LIFE
People were created to exist forever in eternity.  We will either exist eternally separated from God because of sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation through Christ. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.

BAPTISM AND THE LORD’S SUPPER
Jesus gave the Church two visible symbols (“ordinances”) as reminders of His death and resurrection. These two ordinances are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptism is to be done following salvation, as an act of obedience and identification with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Through the Lord’s Supper we testify of our faith in Jesus Christ and our acceptance of His full Salvation – Every believer is invited to participate in these ordinances with us.

SANCTIFICATION & HOLINESS
We believe that every believer must have a sanctification experience which will enable him/her, through the work of The Holy Spirit to live freely and holy as we bear witness of our standing before God whilst being separated from the world – We embrace Sanctification as a second work of grace in the heart by The Holy Spirit.
