1. 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 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21).
2. THE 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; Omniscient, Omnipotent and Omnipresent (Genesis 1:1; Mathew 3:16-17; 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14).
3. THE DEPRAVED NATURE OF HUMANITY:
We believe that “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God”, are subject to eternal punishment, and need Repentance and Regeneration (Genesis 3:1-19; Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23; Matthew 13:41, 42; Romans 6:23; Acts 2:38; Matthew 4:17; Acts 20:21; John 3:3,5; Titus 3:5).
4. THE SAVIOUR:
We believe that humanity’s need of a Saviour has been met in the person of Jesus Christ, because of His Deity, Virgin Birth, Sinless Life, Atoning Death, Resurrection and Ascension, His Abiding Intercession and His Second Coming to judge the living and the dead (Matthew 1:21; John 4:42; Acts 2:36; Ephesians 5:23; Philippians 2:6-11; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1; John 20:38; Romans 9:5; Titus 2:13,14; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:25-27; John 8:46; Hebrews 4:15; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Romans 3:25; Hebrews 9:22; 1 John 2:2; Acts 1:9-11; Acts 2:33-36; Romans 8:34; Hebrews 7:25; Acts 1:11; Matthew 28:5-7; Acts 2:24; Acts 2:36; Acts 10:39,40; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; Acts 10:42; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; 2 Timothy 4:1; Revelation 22:12, 20).
5. REPENTANCE, REGENERATION, JUSTIFICATION AND SANCTIFICATION:
We believe that all humanity has to repent and confess their sins before God, and believe in the vicarious death of Jesus Christ to be justified before God. We believe in sanctification of the believer through the workings of the Holy Spirit and in God’s gift of eternal life to the believer (Luke 15:7; Acts 2:38; Acts 3:19; Acts 17:30; Romans 4:25; Romans 5:1; 1 Corinthians 1:30; 1 Corinthians 6:11; John 17:2,3; John 10:27, 28; Romans 6:23b; 1 John 5:11-13).
6. THE ORDINANCES OF BAPTISM AND THE LORD’S SUPPER:
We believe in the ordinance of Baptism by immersion as a testimony of a convert who has attained a responsible age of about 13 years. Infants and children are not baptized but are dedicated to the Lord. We believe in the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper or Holy Communion, which should be partaken by all members who are in full fellowship (Matthew 3:16; Matthew 28:19; Mark 1:9, 10; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; Mark 10:13-16; Luke 2:22-24,34; Luke 22:19-20; Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 11:23-33).
7. BAPTISM, GIFTS AND FRUIT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT:
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit for all believers with the initial evidence of speaking in tongues and in the operation of the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit (Joel 2:28,29; Acts 2:3,4,38,39; 10:44-46;19:1-6; 1 Corinthians 12:11-18; 28:30; Romans 12:6-8; Galatians 5.22,23).
8. DIVINE HEALING:
We believe that the healing of sickness and disease is provided for God’s people in the atonement. The Church is, however, not opposed to soliciting the help of qualified medical practitioners (2 Kings 20:7; Mathew 9:12; Luke 10:34; Colossians 4:14).
9. TITHES AND OFFERING:
We believe in tithing and in the giving of free-will offerings towards the cause of carrying forward the Kingdom of God. We believe that God blesses a cheerful giver (Genesis 14:18-20; 28:20-22; Malachi 3:6-10; Mathew 23:23; Acts 20:35; 1 Corinthians 16:1-3; 2 Corinthians 9:1-9).
10. THE SECOND COMING AND 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 (Mark 13: 26; Daniel 12:2; John 5: 28-29; Acts 1:11; 10:42; Romans 2:7-11; 6:23).
11. MARRIAGE AND 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 honorable 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).
