Statement Of Faith

  • We believe in the Scriptures in their original writing as fully inspired of God and accept them as the supreme and final authority of faith and life.
  • We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Father, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary and is both true God and true man.
  • We believe that God created man in His image, that man sinned and thereby incurred the penalty of death both physical and spiritual. We believe that all human beings inherit a sinful nature which results in separation from God.
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died a sacrificial death for our sins and that all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of his shed blood.
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus, His ascension into heaven, and his present life as our high priest and advocate.
  • We believe in the future return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that all that repent of their sins and receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit, and thereby become children of God.
  • We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit, empowering and equipping believers for service, with the accompanying supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit and fellowship with the Holy Spirit. We believe in the divinely ordained ministries of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers.
  • 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.
  • We believe that the one true church is the whole company of those who have been redeemed by Jesus Christ and regenerated by the Holy Spirit. The new birth and personal confession of Christ are essentials of ministry membership.
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ appointed two ordinances- baptism in water and the Lord's supper. These are to be observed as acts of obedience and as perpetual witness to the cardinal facts of the Christian faith. Baptism is the immersion of the believer in water as confession of identification with Christ in burial and resurrection. The Lord's supper is the partaking of the emblems symbolic of the Saviour’s broken body and shed blood in remembrance of his sacrificial death until he comes.
  • We believe that divine healing is an integral part of the gospel.
  • We believe the Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord. We believe in the doctrine of sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of the new birth and continuing until consummation of salvation.The ministry is open to any further truth which the Holy Spirit may illuminate from the scriptures
