What we Believe

THE SCRIPTURES

We believe  the scriptures to be the inspired word of God, the complete revelation of God’s will for the salvation of mankind, and the Divine and final authority for christian faith and life. (See 2Timothy 3vs15-17 and 

2 Peter 1v20&21). The Bible does not contain the Word of God, the Bible is the Word of God.


GOD

We believe in one God, who has existed from eternity in three persons, Father Son and Holy Spirit, but one God. Each having equally the same attributes OMNIPOTENCE, OMNISCIENCE, OMNIPRESENCE, WISDOM, FAITHFULNESS, GOODNESS, LOVE, HOLINESS and RIGHTEOUSNESS. No member of the trinity acts independently, each has His own special function in the Godhead.


JESUS CHRIST

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has two Natures, HUMAN and DIVINE. HE IS GOD OF VERY GOD, AND MAN OF VERY MAN. Conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary. He died on the cross for our sins, He rose from among the dead, ascended into heaven and is our Great High Priest at the right hand of God.

He lived a sinless perfect life while here on earth,so he alone is qualified to give Himself as a sacrifice for sin on our behalf.

Because of His death on Calvary, we can now know the forgiveness of sins, and be sure of a place in heaven when our life here is ended. (1Cor15v1-5)

HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD - There is abundant proof that Jesus rose the dead, being seen of well over 500 witnesses, and later he ascended bodily into Heaven.(1Cor15vs5-8).


THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe that the Holy Spirits ministry is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this age to convict of sin,and accomplish the new birth (The giving of eternal life) to all who will believe in Christ.

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS NOT A MERE INFLUENCE, HE IS A REAL PERSON, equal in the Trinity With the Father and the Son, HE HAS KNOWLEDGE,HE CAN PRAY, HE CAN BE LIED TO, HE CAN BE GRIEVED, HE CAN BE QUENCHED, AND HE CAN GUIDE.

He indwells individuals, He indwells the church, both are spoken of as His Temple.

He is called another COMFORTER, HELPER OR ADVOCATE as Jesus was and is.

Believers in Christ are baptised in the Holy Spirit, and they should show the ninefold fruits of the Spirit.

HE IS THE EARNEST, THE DOWN PAYMENT OF A COMING INHERITANCE.
