The Fabric of Our Beliefs

We will endeavour to restore dignity to diverse human kind by the expression of our love through our love for Christ.

We believe in one God, the creator and ruler of the universe. Who exists eternally in three distinct but equal persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He is loving, holy and just.
Genesis 1:1 Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19

We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God; he is both God and Man. He is co-equal with the Father. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. Jesus led a sinless human life and took all sins of all mankind upon Himself by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate his power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Today, He is seated at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Mediator.
Matthew 1:22, 23; John 1:1-5, 14:; Hebrews 4:14, 15; 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4; Romans 1:3, 4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14, 15; Titus 2:13;Hebrews 9:15

We Believe the Holy Spirit is our Comforter and is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to guides us in all areas of our lives and to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He gives the Christian power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, guidance in doing right and blesses us with spiritual gifts to empower us to yield the fruit of the Spirit. As Christian we seek to live daily under his control.
John 16:7-13, 14:16, 17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:1

We believe people are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like him in character. They are the supreme objects of God’s creation. Although people have tremendous potential for good, they are spoiled by an attitude of disobedience toward God called sin. We believe sin has separated humankind from God, and that only through Jesus Christ can mankind be reconciled to God.
Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23

We believe that salvation is a gift from God to mankind. It is received by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and it produces works pleasing to God.
Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8, 9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5

We believe that water baptism is an outward act that symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus and is our public declaration that we have accepted Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour. Baptism is not a pre-requisite for salvation but biblical command and demonstrates our love and obedience to Christ.
Colossians 2:12; Romans 6:4

We believe humankind was created to exist eternally. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with him is eternal life.
John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; 1 John 5:11-12; Matthew 25:31-46

We believe the Bible is God’s word to all mankind written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme inspired and accurate source of truth for Christian beliefs and perfect guide in all matters of life,
2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20, 21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105,160

We believe the universal Church is the body of which Christ is the head and to which all who are saved belong. It is visible seen through local churches – congregations of believers who do life together and live in committed relationships with each other for the purpose of worshipping God, Christian discipleship, pastoral care and evangelism.
Romans 12:5; 1 Corinthians 12:12-27; Ephesians 4:12

We believe the Holy Communion is a celebration of Jesus’ death and our remembrance of Him.
Luke 22:19-20; Luke 24:30; 1 Corinthians 11:24-27

We believe God wants to transform, heal and prosper us, so that we can live blessed and victorious lives that will impact and help others.
Matthew 6:26; Matthew 7:7; Jeremiah 29:11; Philippians 4:19

We believe we are called to preach the gospel to all nations.
Mark 16:15; Luke 10:1-9
