We believe in a direct personal experience of God through the baptism with water and the Holy Spirit. Our church adheres to the inerrant scripture and the necessity of accepting Christ as personal Lord and Savior. It is distinguished by belief in a Holy Spirit-filled life.
Our vision is a Christian Evangelism and Discipleship strategy to fulfill the Great Commission. It is founded upon the idea that every Christian can mentor and lead twelve people in the Christian faith, following the example of Jesus.
Our doctrines and beliefs are based on the following tenets:
1. THE BIBLE:
The divine inspiration and authority of the Holy Scriptures, which is infallible in its declaration, final in its authority, all-sufficient in its provisions and also comprehensive in its sufficiency (2 Ti. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:21).
2. THE ONE TRUE GOD:
Maker of the whole universe Who is indefinable, but revealed as the Trinity Godhead – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – one in nature, essence and attributes. Omnipotent and Omniscient as well as Omnipresent (Ge 1:1; Mt. 3:16-17; 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14).
3. MAN’S DEPRAVED NATURE:
All people have sinned and come short of the glory of God and therefore, we are subject to eternal punishment and need repentance and regeneration (Get. 3:1-19; Isa. 53:6).
4. OUR SAVIOR:
Man’s need of a Savior is met in the person of Jesus Christ because of His deity, virgin birth, sinless life, atoning death and resurrection and His ascension, His abiding intercession and also His second coming (Mt. 1:21; Jn. 4:42; Eph. 5:23; Phil. 2:6-11).
5. REPENTANCE, REGENERATION, JUSTIFICATION AND SANCTIFICATION:
All people have to repent of and confess their sins before God, and then receive sanctification through the working of the Holy Spirit and in God’s gift of Eternal Life. (Lk. 15:7; Ac. 2:38; Ro. 4:25; 5:16).
6. THE ORDINANCES (SACRAMENTS) OF THE CHURCH:
Baptism by immersion is a testimony of a convert who has attained a responsible age. The Lord’s Supper which should be partaken of by all members who are in full fellowship (Mt. 28:19, 20; Mk. 16:16; Lk. 22:19-20).
7. BAPTISM, GIFT AND FRUIT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT:
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit for believers with signs following; and in the operation of the gifts and the fruit of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers (Mk. 16:17; Ac. 2:4; 1 Co. 12:8-11; Gal. 5:22, 23).
8. THE SECOND COMING AND THE NEXT LIFE:
The Resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved. Those who are saved to the resurrection of life, and the unsaved to the resurrection of damnation (Mk. 13:26; Jn. 5:28, 29; Ac. 1:11; 10:42; Ro. 2:7-11; 6:23).
9. TITHES AND OFFERINGS:
Tithing and in the giving of free-will offerings towards the cause of carrying forward the Kingdom of God, and that God blesses a cheerful giver (Ge. 14:18-20; 28:20-22; Mal. 3:6-10; Mt. 23:23; Ac. 20:35; 1 Co. 16:1-3; 2 Co. 9:1-9).
10. DIVINE HEALING:
The healing of sickness and disease is provided for God’s people in atonement, however, the Church is not opposed to soliciting the help of qualified medical practitioners (2 Ki. 20:7; Mt. 9:12; Lk. 10:34; Col. 4:14)
