WHAT WE BELIEVE
(OUR FUNDAMENTAL TRUTHS)
1. The Scripture Inspired
The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God (2 Tim. 3:15-17) for faith, conduct, and practice.
2. The One True God
There is one true God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father; God the Son; and God the Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6:4; Isaiah 43:10,11; Matt. 28:19; Luke 3:22).
3. The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ
The Scriptures declare His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection from the dead, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, His personal return to the earth in power and in glory to rule a thousand years.
4 The Fall of Man
Man was created good and upright, and in the image and likeness of God. However, man by voluntary transgression fell and thereby invited both physical and spiritual death, which is separation from God. (Gen. 1:26,27; 2:17; 3:6 Romans 5:12-19).
5. The Salvation of Man
Man’s only hope of redemption is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Jesus Christ.
6. The Ordinances of The Church
These are: WATER BAPTISM by immersion for all who repent and believe on Christ as Saviour and Lord (Matt. 28:19; Mark 16:16; Rom. 6:4); and HOLY COMMUNION, consisting of the elements – bread and the fruit of the Vine – is the symbol expressing the broken body and the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 14:4; I Cor. 11:26).
7. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit
All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4,8; I Cor. 12:1-31)
8. The Initial Physical Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Ghost.
The baptism of believers in the Holy Ghost is witnessed by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives the utterance. (Acts. 2:4; 10:44-46; 19:6)
