Statement of Faith

This is a page that people looks for at first when they come across a ministry or website. Listed below are the Bible based beliefs that a believer or "child of God" who is often called a Christian must hold.

Christian Beliefs:

  • We believe in one true God Almighty - The Holy One of Abraham, Issac and Jacob - the Father who created everything, who manifested Himself in Jesus Christ and indwells the believer as the Holy Spirit today.
  • We believe that the Bible is the infallible Word of God inspired by the Holy Spirit and the final authority for salvation and spiritual living.
  • We believe that any other source is of the evil one and condemns the practice of any form of mediums or spirits like astrology, signs, timings and occults.
  • We believe that the Gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again!
  • We believe that we partake of the gospel by repentance [dying to sin], baptism in water in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ [burial], and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (Holy Ghost) [resurrection], thereby reconciling to God and is the Only Way to attain it.
  • The process of reconciling to God is called salvation and is received by grace through faith alone. No human deed can attain this since it has been achieved by Jesus' sacrificial death on the cross and His resurrection from the dead.
  • We believe that believers walk in the Spirit, will live a life of inward holiness which will manifest itself outwardly in love, joy, peace and godliness.
  • We believe that the body of Christ is the church and Jesus Christ is its head.
  • We believe that the five-fold ministry is still at work today: apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers till the return of Christ to receive His church.
  • We believe in the supernatural gifts of the Spirit and that God performs them in the church today.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ will return to receive His church.
  • We believe that there will be a final resurrection and a final judgement, in which the righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death.

For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. (Col 1:16-17)
"God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." (Jn 4:24)

when they say to you, "Seek those who are mediums and wizards, who whisper and mutter," should not a people seek their God? Should they seek the dead on behalf of the living? (Isa 8:19)

Jesus said to him, " You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.' "This is the first and great commandment.

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. (Eph 2:8-9)

Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt.

For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them:... in proportion to our faith; (Rom 12:4-6)

And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; (Eph 4:11-13)

Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. (Heb 6:1-2)

Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. (Phil 2:12-13)

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Rom 6 :23)
