We believe

BIBLE

John 1:1-45; 2 Peter 1:21; 2 Timothy 3:16

the Bible was God breathed, not the will of man but holy men spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit, it's the infallible revelation of faith and conduct for humanity. We do not indiscriminately endorse ever "New" translation!

GOD

Isaiah 45:5-6 
Mark 12:29; Matthew 18:19.

 there is only one God, eternal and self-existent, self-revealed and manifested to  man as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

GOSPEL

Acts 20:24; Galatians 1:6-9; Luke 4:18,19.

there is no other Gospel other than the Gospel of Grace, God’s Good News.

 SALVATION

Ephesians 2:8,9; Romans 3:21-26. John 1:12,13

man is saved by grace, through faith and it's a gift of God. Salvation is not of works or any human effort but of God.

 THE SON

John 3:16; Acts 2:36; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8.

Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God and He was crucified, died and was buried. On the third day, He rose from the dead and later ascended into Heaven, 

THE MINISTRY

Ephesians 2:20; Ephesians 4:11. 

in the full function of the five-fold ministry, which was given to perfect and equip the saints so they can enter into the work of the ministry, thereby edifying the whole Body of Christ. 

HEAVEN and HELL

Luke 16:19-31; John 3:36; 2 Corinthians 5:1-9.

after death, eternal life begins either in Heaven or Hell. Where you spend eternity is based on your decision to receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.

RAPTURE

1 Thessalonians 4:13 - 18; 1 Corinthians 15:51 - 57.

that when the Rapture occurs, the dead in Christ and the living believers will be caught up to meet the Lord Jesus in the air.

in the power and authority of Jesus’ name.

HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM

in the indwelling and the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.

HEALING

1 Peter 2:24; Matthew 9:35. Isaiah 53:5; 1 John 3:2,

in divine healing procured by faith, We further believe that Jesus is our Healer and that by His stripes we are already healed. All believes should live in Divine health.  

MONEY and the LOCAL CHURCH

Acts 2:41-47; Deuteronomy 26:1-4; Matthew 23:23. Malachi 3:10.
