Statement of Faith

1. One God
There is only one God who is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent, The Creator and Sustainer of all things, and existent in Three Persons, The Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14).

2. The Lord Jesus Christ

The Lord Jesus Christ, Deity and Saviour born of a virgin birth to manifest in the flesh, eternal Son of God, died, resurrected the third day and ascended, and shall return in all power and glory (Luke 1:26-35; John 1:18; Isaiah 7:14; Isaiah 9:6).

3. The Holy Scriptures
The Holy Scriptures as in The Old and New Testaments are divinely inspired and infallible, serve as the authority in all matters of faith and conduct (2 Timothy 3:16; 1 Corinthians 2:13).

4. Justification By Faith
Salvation is a gift of God, and comes by repentance and the remission of sins, and faith in the atoning death and resurrection work of The Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8-9; Hebrews 9:12,22; Romans 5:11).

5. The Devil
The person of the Devil, initiated the downfall of man, and now seeks to destroy mankind, hinder the faith of every believer, stop the influence of The Gospel of God and the growth of The Church but in the end shall be judged and cast into the Lake of Fire with his angels (Matthew 25:41; Revelation 20:14-15).

6. Baptism In Water
Believers are to be baptized into the Name of The Father, of The Son and of The Holy Spirit by immersion in water in fulfillment of the command of Christ (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:34-36; 10:44-48).

7. Baptism In The Holy Spirit
This is a real experience at or subsequent to salvation, with the Scriptural evidence, namely speaking in other tongues as The Spirit gives utterance (Acts 2:1-4; 8:14-17; 10:44-46).

8. The Communion
This is a fellowship amongst believers as an act in obedience to the command of Christ, and is done in remembrance of His Atoning work on The Cross (1 Corinthians 11:28-32; Matthew 26:26-28).

9. Gifts Of The Holy Spirit
These gifts and its operations are for the edification of the congregation as manifested in The Early Church (1 Corinthians 12 to 14).

10. Eternal Life
There shall be eternal life for believers and eternal damnation for the un-believers (John 5:24; 3:16; Mark 9:43-48; 2 Thessalonians 1:9; Revelation 20:10-15).

11. The Church
There is one true Universal Church made up of many local churches in different localities whose congregations are those who believe that Jesus is Lord and Saviour (Acts 15:22; Matthew 16:18; 18:15-20).

12. The Return Of Christ
This is a literal and physical coming of The Lord Jesus Christ, returning as He ascended, with power and majesty, to rule on earth as King of Kings, Lord of Lords, and to judge the dead and the living (John 14:2-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).
