Tenets of Faith
We believe that the Bible is the Inspired Word of God. It contains sixty-six books and is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
We believe in the One True God who is the creator of all things. He is eternal and exist in three persons: God the Father, God the Son God the Holy Spirit.
We believe that man was created in the likeness of God. But man fell by voluntary transgression and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.
We believe that to receive forgiveness and the ‘new birth’ we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives. Man is justified by faith and that guilt is pardoned by the blood of Jesus Christ.
We believe that to become one in Christ a believer should be baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit by immersion in water and thus become part-takers of the burial and resurrection of Christ.
We believe that a believer should be separated from sin, sinners, false doctrines and all kinds of worship contrary to the ‘Bible.
We believe that the Lord’s Supper is a memorial of Jesus’ suffering and death and to be celebrated regularly till He comes.
We believe that we are entitled to and shall earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Spirit according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is an experience, which is a distinct experience from the new birth and is witnessed by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance, and it is the physical evidence of having received His endowment of power for witnessing.
We believe that divine healing is an integral part of the Gospel. The gifts of the Holy Spirit including gifts of healing are provided for in the atonement, which is the privilege of all believers today. Praying for the sick is emphasized in the New Testament, and it is the duty of the Church to practice it.
We believe that the church is the congregation of believers; its faith and experience should confirm to and stand steadfast in the teaching of the apostles in the New Testament.
We believe that evangelization is the supreme duty and privilege of the church.
We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as described in Scripture (Genesis 2:18-25, Malachi 2).
We believe that our eternal destination of either Heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
