tenets

The Bible

We believe in the divine inspiration and authority of the Holy Scriptures. We believe that the Bible is infallible in its declaration, final in its authority, all-sufficient in its provisions and comprehensive in its sufficiency (2 Timothy 3:162 Peter 1:21).

Man's 
Depraved nature

We believe that "all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God" (Genesis 3:1-19; Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23) and are subject to eternal punishment (Matthew 13:41, 42; Romans 6:23), and need repentance (Acts 2:38; Matthew 4:17; Acts 20:21) and regeneration (John 3:3,5; Titus 3:5).

Repentace

We believe all men have to repent and confess their sins before God (Acts 2:38; 3:19; 17; 30; Luke 15:7), and believe in the vicarious death of Jesus Christ before they can be justified before God (Romans 4:25; 5:1). We believe in the sanctification of the believer through the working of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 1:30; 6:11) and God’s gift of eternal life to the believer (Romans 6:23b; John 17:2, 3; 10:27, 28; 1 John 5:11-13).

One True God

We believe in the existence of the One True God, Elohim, Maker of the whole universe; indefinable, but revealed as Triune Godhead - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - one in nature, essence and attributes; Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent (Genesis 1:1Matthew 3:16-172 Corinthians 13:14Matthew 28:19Genesis 1:26).

The savior

We believe man’s need of a Savior has been met in the person of Jesus Christ (Matthew 1:21; John 4:42; Ephesians 5:23; Philippians 2:6-11), because of His Deity (Acts 2:36; John 1:1; 20:28; Romans 9:5; Titus 2:13, 14; Isaiah 9:6), Virgin Birth (Isaiah 7;14; Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:25-26, Sinless life (John 8:46; Hebrews 4:15; 2 Corinthians 5;21), Atoning Death (Romans 3:25; Hebrews 9:22; 1 John 2;2), Resurrection (Acts 2:36; 10:39-40; Matthew 28:5-7; Acts 2:24; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4) and Ascension (Acts 1:9-11; 2:33-36); His abiding intercession (Hebrews 7:25; Romans 8:34) and His Second coming to judge the living and the dead (Revelations 22:12, 20; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; 2 Timothy 4:1; Acts 1:11;10:42).

 

We believe in the sacrament of Baptism by immersion as a testimony of a convert who has attained a responsible age of 13 years (Matthew 3:16; Mark 1:9, 10; 16:16; Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38). Infants and children are not baptized, but are dedicated to the Lord (Luke 2:22-24, 34; Mark 10:13-16). We believe in the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper or Holy Communion which should be partaken by all members who are in full fellowship (Luke 22:19-20; Matthew 26:21-29; Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 11:23-33 ).

The next life

We believe in the Second Coming of Christ and the Resurrection of the dead, both the saved and the unsaved. They that are saved to the resurrection of life and the unsaved to the Resurrection of damnation (Acts 1:11; 10:42; Mark 13:26; John 5:28-29; Daniel 12:2; Romans 2:7-11; 6:23).

Divine 
Healing

We believe that the healing of sickness and disease is provided for God’s people in the atonement (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:7-13; 16, 17; James 5:14-16; Luke 13:10-16; Acts 10:38; Mark 16:17, 18). However, the Church is not opposed to medication by qualified medical practitioners.

MARRIAGE
&
 FAMILY

We believe in the institution of marriage as a union established and ordained by God for the lifelong, intimate relationship between a man as husband and a woman as wife as biologically defined at birth. We believe that God instituted marriage primarily for mutual help, fellowship and comfort that one ought to have for the other and for honourable procreation of children, and their training in love, obedience to the Lord and responsible citizenship. (Genesis 2:18, 21-25; Matthew 19:4-6; 1 Corinthians 7:1-2).

The holy
spirit

We believe in the divine inspiration and authority of the Holy Scriptures. We believe that the Bible is infallible in its declaration, final in its authority, all-sufficient in its provisions and comprehensive in its sufficiency (2 Timothy 3:162 Peter 1:21).

Tithes
offering

We believe in tithing and in the giving of freewill offerings towards the cause of carrying forward the Kingdom of God. We believe that God blesses a cheerful giver (Genesis 14:18-20; Malachi 3:6-10; Hebrews 7:1-4; Matthew 23:23; Acts 20:35; 1 Corinthians 16:1, 2).
