Principles of Faith

1. The Bible

We believe in the Divine inspiration and authority of the Holy Scriptures.
We believe that the Bible is infallible in its declaration, final in its authority,
all-sufficient in its provisions and comprehensive in its sufficiency(2 Tim. 3:16, 2 Pet. 1:21).

2. The One True God

We believe in the existence of the one True God, Elohim, Maker of the whole universe; un-definable
but revealed as Triune Godhead – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
One in nature, essence and attribute. Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent(Gen. 1:1, Matt. 28:19, Gen. 1:26).

3. Man’s Depraved Nature

We believe that “all men have sinned and come short of the glory of God”; and are subject to eternal punishment.
Therefore, there is a need for repentance and regeneration(Gen. 3:1-19, Isaiah 53:6).

4. The Saviour

We believe that man’s need for a saviour has been met in the person of Christ Jesus, because of His deity, virgin birth,
sinless life, atoning death, resurrection, ascension, His abiding intercession and second coming(John 8:46, John 14:30,
Col. 1:15, 2 Cor. 5:19, Rom. 3:25, Acts 2:36, Phil. 2:9-11, 1 Thes. 4:16-17, Rev. 22:20).

5. Repentance, Justification and Sanctification

We believe all men have to repent of, and confess, their sins before God, and believe on the vicarious death of
Christ Jesus before they can be justified before God. We believe in the sanctification of a believer through
the working of the Holy Spirit and in God’s gift of eternal life to the believer(Acts 2:38, Luke 15:7, Rom. 4:25,
Rom. 5:16, 1 Cor. 1:30, 1 Thes. 4:3).

6. The Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper

We believe in the sacrament of Baptism by immersion as a testimony of a convert who has attained a responsible age
of about fifteen years(Luke 3:21, Mark 16:16). Infants and Children are not baptised but are dedicated to Lord
(Luke 2:22-24, 34, Mark 10:16). We believe in the sacrament of the Lord’s supper which should be partaken by
all members who are in full fellowship(Luke 22:19-20, Mark 16:17, Acts 2:4, Gal. 5:22).

7. Baptism, Gifts, and Fruit of the Holy Spirit

We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit for the believers with signs following; and in the operation of the gifts
and fruits of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers(1 Cor. 12:8-11, Mark 16:17, Acts 2:4, Gal. 5:22).

8. Next Life

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved. They, that are saved, to resurrection of life and the
unsaved, to resurrection of damnation(John 5: 28-29, Daniel 12:2, Rom. 2:7, 6:23, Acts 20:35).

9. Tithes and Offerings

We believe in tithing and giving of offerings towards the cause of carrying forward the Kingdom of God. We also believe
that God blesses a cheerful giver(Malachi 3:10, Heb. 7:1, Luke 6:38, Acts 20:35).

10. Divine Healing

We believe that the healing of sickness is provided by God’s people in the atonement(Isaiah 53:4-5, Matt. 8:7, 17, Mark 16:18,
James 5:14-16, Luke 13:10-16). Yet, the Church is not opposed to soliciting the help of qualified medical practitioners.
