THE HOLY BIBLE:
Complete with its 39 books of the Old Testament and 27 books of the New Testament, the Bible is the inspired Word of God. We regard the Bible as the final authority and as infallible truth in its revelation of all matters concerning life and faith.
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” (2 Tim 3:16, 17)
Jesus is the Word of Life.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” (John 1:1-2, 14)
THE TRINITY & THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT:
The Godhead consists of three separate, distinct and recognizable personalities and qualities, perfectly united in one – The Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.
“ And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straight way out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:16-17)
“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
THE VIRGIN BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST:
Jesus is the only begotten Son of God, who was crucified for the sin of all. He died and was buried, resurrected on the third day according to the gospel and is the Saviour and Redeemer of mankind.
“Concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh, and declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.” (Romans 1:3-4)
“Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel”. (Isaiah 7:14)
It is for life between one man and one woman. It was instituted and ordained by God. God’s plan for abundant life does not include divorce. However, God’s Word provides for restitution and restoration for the divorcee. A couple living together, apart from marriage is not Scriptural. The active practice of polygamy, fornication, adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism, and all other sexual immoralities are forbidden
“Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” (Matthew 19:6)
“Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the LORD hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant.” (Malachi 2:14, 16)
“Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required in stewards that one be found faithful.” ( 1st Corin. 4:1-2)
“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try me now in this,” Says the LORD of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.” ( Malachi 3:10)
“Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” (Galatians 6:1-2)
“So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, The crawling locust, The consuming locust, And the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you." (Joel 2:25)
It is by grace that we are empowered to remain loyal to Jesus by both our words and actions.
“When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever desires to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.” (Mark 8:34)
“Obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account. Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you.” (Hebrews 13:17)
LOVE: Loving God and all of mankind.
“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” (Matthew 22:37-39)
INTEGRITY: Accountability in righteousness.
“Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? Who shall dwell in thy holy hill? He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.” (Psalm 15:1-3)
HONOUR: Honour God, those in authority: father, mother inclusive and all people.
“Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.” (1 Peter 2:17)“Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment with promise.” (Ephesians 6:2)“Dear brothers and sisters, honor those who are your leaders in the Lord’s work. They work hard among you and give you spiritual guidance. Show them great respect and wholehearted love because of their work. And live peacefully with each other.” (1 Thess 5:12, 13)
WORSHIP & HIS PRESENCE: As we worship wholeheartedly, we contend for his presence and all his fullness with prophetic manifestations in our midst. When the Lord appears, every knee must bow and our circumstances and ourselves are transformed.
“But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." (John 4:23,24)
"One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.” (Psalm 2:4)
AWE OF GOD & KNOWLEDGE OF GOD: He does not want anyone to perish, rather that all shall come to the knowledge of him and that he is GOD.
“And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” (John 17:3)
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” (Proverbs 9:10)
OUR VISION: Equipping the saints, making ready a people prepared for the Lord and establishing heaven here on earth.
“For the quipping 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.” (Ephesians 4:12)
“He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” (Luke 1:17)
