Statement of Faith

We Believe...

there is one true God, eternally manifested in the Persons of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Colossians 2:9   John 14:26   Matthew 28:19

the Lord Jesus Christ, the one and only begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary and is God’s anointed one. He is empowered by the Holy Spirit to inaugurate God’s kingdom on earth. Jesus was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected and ascended into Heaven. We believe in the physical and glorious return of Jesus Christ to earth as triumphant King.

2 Timothy 3:16,17

we are saved by God’s grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repenting, believing and receiving Jesus as their Saviour and Lord. The Holy Spirit convicts, regenerates, justifies and adopts us as we enter the Kingdom of God as His sons and daughters.

Romans 10:9,10   Ephesians 2:8

the baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 1:8 and 2:4, is poured out on believers for the edification of God’s people and for Kingdom advancement.

We are to be continually filled with the Holy Spirit and minister supernaturally.

The church exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ and to further advance His Kingdom by destroying the works of the enemy, preaching and living the good news of God’s love, disciple the nations, baptizing and teaching them to love and obey God.

Acts 2:38   1 Corinthians 11:24-26   Matthew 28:19   Matthew 10:7,8

that King Jesus came and established His kingdom in the first century. This kingdom has been growing and expanding, going from glory to greater glory. By the kingdom expanding, the prayer of Jesus is being progressively answered and it is becoming “… on earth as it is in Heaven”.

in the full function of the five-fold ministry offices: apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, which were given to perfect and equip the saints so they can enter into the work of their ministry, thereby edifying the whole body of Christ. We further believe that the maturity of the Body of Christ is impossible without the functioning of all five of Christ’s ministry gifts to His church.
