The Scriptures are true, inspired by God, authoritative, sufficient for instruction and guidance, and are completely flawless. (I Timothy 3:16; I Thessalonians 2:13; II Peter 1:21)
There is only one true God, Creator of heaven and earth, who eternally exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (I John 5:6-8; Philippians 2:6) Each member of the Trinity serves different functions and they each possess equal power and authority. (John16: 28; John 1:14).
God the Father
God the Father is the creator of all things in heaven and earth. All things exist solely for the glory of God the Father. God is holy and righteous of all of His ways. He is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust. (Isaiah 44:24; Psalms 86:8-10; Psalm 99:1-3; Isaiah 40:25; 57:15)
Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, was born of a virgin and is both fully God and fully human. Christ died as the sacrificial substitute to pay the penalty for man’s sin; physically rose from the dead; ascended into heaven and will one day physically return (Luke 1:35; John 1:14; 11:25-27; 17:1-5; Acts 1:9; 2:22-24; Romans 1:3-4; 8:1-3; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21)
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. He regenerates, indwells, baptizes, and seals all believers in Christ and empowers those yielded to God. (Matt. 28:19; John 3:3-7; Titus 3:5; ICor. 6:19; Rom. 8:9; ICor. 2:12; 12:13; Eph. 4:30; Col. 3:14)
The Fall of Man
Having been created good and in the likeness of God, Adam, the first man, sinned. This resulted in all humanity being made sinful by birth and having a natural appetite to sin. The deserved penalty for sin is physical and spiritual death. (Rom. 2:2,3,5; Eph. 2:8,9; Gen. 1:27, 9:6; Rom. 5:12; 3:23; Eph. 2:1)
Eternal life and the new birth
Salvation is God’s gift to mankind. Mankind can never do enough good to earn God’s acceptance or forgiveness. Man's only hope of redemption is through repentance and acceptance that Jesus Christ shed his blood to pay for man’s sin. (Ephesians 2:8, Jhn 3:16).
Healing for the physical sickness is made possible by the power of God through the prayer of faith, and/or by the laying on of hands. It is provided for in the atonement of Christ, and is the privilege of every Christian (Mark 16:18; James 5:14-15; I Peter 2:24; Mathew 8:17; Isaiah 53:4-5).
Baptism in the holy spirit
All believers are entitled to, should expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Ghost. The Baptism of believers in the Holy Ghost is evidenced by the supernatural power for life and ministry on this earth. (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4,8; I Cor 12:1-31) The baptism of believers in the Holy Ghost is also witnessed by the physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives them utterance (Acts 2:4).
We believe in the Doctrine of Sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consummation of salvation at Christ's return (Hebrews 12:14; I Thessalonians 5:23; II Peter3:18;II Corinthians 3:18; Phillippians3: 12-14; I Corinthians1: 30)
Resurrection of the just and the return of our lord
There will be a future physical resurrection of the dead. Only those who turn from sin and to Jesus in faith and repentance will be raised to eternal reward. Those who do not turn from sin and to Jesus will be raised to eternal punishment. (Acts1: 11;I Thessalonians 4:16-17;John 5:28, 29; Rev. 20:15).
The church is composed of all believers. It is the body and bride of Christ, formed by the baptism of the Holy Spirit and existing in two aspects, universal and local. The universal church is an elect company of believers, baptized by the Holy Spirit into one body. Its mission is to witness to its head, Jesus Christ, preaching the gospel among all nations. At the Rapture of the church, it will be caught up to meet the Lord, after which He will return to set up His Kingdom. The local church is a group of believers voluntarily joined together in love to worship God with praise and thanksgiving, and to glorify Jesus Christ through an aggressive effort to disciple others by the preaching of the gospel and the exercise of spiritual gifts. (Eph. 1:22,23; 5:24-30; I Cor. 12:4-13,27)
The Bible sets forth two ordinances, the Lord’s Supper and water baptism.
The Lord’s Supper is to be celebrated regularly in remembrance of Christ’s death on the cross and in expectation of His return.
Water baptism in water by immersion is a direct commandment of our Lord and an outward testimony of a person’s belief in Christ and identification with Christian His death, Burial and resurrection (Mathew 28:19; Romans 6:4, Colossians 2:12; Acts 8:36-39; Matt. 28:19,20; Mark 16:15,16; Acts 8:12,36-38; 9:18; 10:47; I Cor. 11:2-26)
The Blessed Hope
Jesus Christ physically rose from the dead, ascended into heaven and will one day physically return. It is in the imminent return of Christ from heaven in which the dead in Christ shall rise and the living Christians shall be caught up with them to meet the Lord in the air and be with him forever. (Titus 3:13-14; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; I Corinthians 15:51-56)
Two separate destinies Heaven or Hell
Heaven is promised to all believers as their eternal home. However, eternal punishment in hell awaits those who do not place their faith in Christ as Lord and Saviour (John 14:1-3; Revelation 21& 22; Matthew 25:46; Revelation 20:11-15)
The existence of a real devil
As both tempter and accuser, who with his angels (demonic powers), exists in personality and reality. (Revelation 12:9-10; Matthew 4:2-11; John 8:44; Ephesians 6:12)
