THE SCRIPTURES – The Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God, profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction and instruction in righteousness and is the supreme authority in all matters of faith and Christian living. The Bible consist 0f Old and New Testament. The New Covenant, as recorded in the New Testament, we accept as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine (2 Tim. 3:16; 1 Thess. 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21).
THE TRINITY (i.e THE GOD HEAD) – There is only One God, eternally existing in three Persons, God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit manifest distinct personalities and in perfect mysterious unity and harmony (Luke 3:22; Deuteronomy 6:4; Romans 1:20). God the Father is greater than all; the Sender of the Word (Logos) and the Begetter (John 14:28; John 16:28; John 1:14). The Son is the Word flesh-covered, the One Begotten, and has existed with the Father from the beginning (John 1:1; John 1:18; John 1:14). The Holy Spirit proceeds forth from both the Father and the Son and is eternal (John 14:16; John 15:26).
MAN – was created in the image and likeness of GOD, but in Adam all mankind fell into sin which made all men sinners, helpless, and sinful themselves, apart from the grace of GOD (Genesis 1:22; Romans 5:12; Ephesians 2:1).
SALVATION – is received by faith in CHRIST, and not by works. CHRIST offered one sacrifice for sins, an offering that is effective forever (Hebrews 10:12). HE died to redeem us from our sins and rose again. HIS shed blood and resurrection provides the only ground for our justification and salvation (Romans 5:6 and 8; 1Peter 3:18; 2Corinthians 5:21). Salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from works and the Law, and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God (Eph. 2:8–10).
ETERNAL LIFE AND THE NEW BIRTH – Man’s first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that works repentance. The New Birth is necessary to all men, and when experienced, produces eternal life (2 Cor. 7:10; John 3:3–5; 1 John 5:12).
ETERNAL SECURITY – GOD will keep forever, by HIS power all thoseJ who accepted JESUS CHRIST as their saviour and have kept their faith in CHRIST (John5:24; 10:28; Hebrews 10:14 Romans 8:1; 1Peter 1:25).
WATER BAPTISM – By immersion in water only for Born again believers and was instituted for the purpose of outward testimony. It is a direct commandment of the LORD JESUS CHRIS. And the ordinance is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. (Mark 16:15; Matthew 3:13-17; 28: 19; Acts 8:38 – 39; Romans 6:3-4; Colossians 2:12).
BAPTISM IN THE HOLY GHOST– The Baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this dispensation and is received subsequent to the new birth. This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance (Matt. 3:11; John 14:16,17; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:38,39; Acts 19:1–7; Acts 2:1–4).
SANCTIFICATION – The Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14). 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 (1 Thess. 5:23; 2 Peter 3:18; 2 Cor. 3:18; Phil. 3:12–14; 1 Cor. 1:30). There are three aspects to sanctification namely
- POSITIONAL SANCTIFICATION: Possessed by every believer from the moment of his conversion regardless of his spiritual condition. This concerns his spiritual placement and position with God and his state of perfect standing in holiness. (1 Corinthians 1:2; 6:11).
- PROGRESSIVE SANCTIFICATION: The daily growth is grace becoming in practices more and more asset apart from God’s use (John17:17; Ephesians 5:26; 1 Peter 1:16).
- ULTIMATE SANCTIFICATION: This is that aspect which is related to our final perfection, attained only when we are fully and completely set apart to God in Heaven. He will remove us from the presence of sins and present us “Faultless” before the presence of His Glory. (1 Thessalonians 5:23-25; Philippians 3:20-21; 1 John 3:2-3).
PERSONAL RETURN OF CHRIST – The LORD JESUS CHRIST shall come again in the same manner as HE was taken into heaven. His coming again is the “BLESSED HOPE” set before us. The souls of those who received HIM as their LORD and saviour shall be caught up together with HIM in the cloud (The death in CHRIST first, then those that are alive), to meet the LORD in the air; and to be with HIM forever in glory. Our citizenship is in heaven. (Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; John 14:1-3; Titus 2:13; Philippians 3:20-21).
HELL AND ETERNAL RETRIBUTION – Anyone who dies in his sins without accepting the Lord Jesus Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the lake of fire. And such has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or repenting (Heb. 9:27; Rev. 19-20; 20:13-15).
