The Holy Bible is the authoritative Word of God. It is the Holy Bible on which all doctrinal truths are determined. We believe that it is Holy Spirit inspired, inerrant and the final authority. Translations that we endorse as a church are NIV, ESV, KJV and The Message and The Passion Translation as a paraphrase.
The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are the Holy trinity, and are coequal and eternally God.
Jesus is fully man and fully God. He is the only man who has ever walked the earth who lived without sin. He was born of the Virgin Mary, performed countless miracles, gave his life on the cross, and rose again for the sins of mankind. He is now seated at the right hand of the Father, and will one day again return in His power and glory.
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was conceived by God the Father, through the Holy Spirit in the Virgin Mary's womb.
Man was created by God, and was in perfect relationship with God. But by their choice, they fell and chose another way. Man's one and only hope for redemption is found in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
For anyone to be in relationship with God, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential. Evidence of a Spirit filled life are the fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
We find salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ: in his death, burial and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, and is not a result of good works or human efforts.
Repentance is the conscious choice to turn away from the sin of your life and to follow Jesus Christ. This allows us to receive His redemption and to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit. It is through repentance that we receive salvation and forgiveness for our sins.
Sanctification is the continuous yielding to God's Word and to the Holy Spirit, developing the character of Christ within us. It is through the ever-present help of the Holy Spirit and through the Word of God that the Christian is able to live a Godly life.
As Jesus is the Son of God and was blameless and sinless, Jesus’ blood was sufficient to cleanse mankind of all sin. Jesus gave Himself as a sacrifice for both our sinfulness and our sins, allowing all who believe to no longer have the penalty of sin, which is death.
Jesus Christ in all Believers
Christians are people who give Jesus Christ lordship over every area of their life when they invite Him to come and dwell inside them by His Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is their Lord, and also their Saviour.
Baptism in the Holy Spirit
First given at Pentecost, the Baptism of the Spirit is to empower all believers to preach the gospel throughout the whole earth. The baptism of the Spirit is also for the edification of the believers.
The Gifts of the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit manifests Himself through a variety of spiritual gifts including wisdom, words of knowledge, faith, healing, miracles, prophesy, discerning of spirits, tongues, and the interpretation of tongues.
The church is the Body of Christ, with the purpose to fulfil the Great Commission.
Water Baptism follows faith in Jesus Christ, and signifies this new life found in salvation. Water baptism is not simply symbolic, however when we are obedient in being baptised, a spiritual transformation occurs.
Communion is taken in remembrance of Jesus Christ's sacrifice on the cross, with the elements of bread and grape juice, signifying the Body and the Blood of Jesus which was given for the salvation of all.
We believe that as expressed in the Scriptures, marriage is the covenantal sacred bond between one man and one woman, which is publicly entered into before God.
Healing of the Sick
Jesus Christ healed the sick as a part of His life and ministry, and commands all of His disciples to do so in the Great Commission. Healing the sick is a sign of God working in our midst, is one of the gifts of the Spirit, and is something that was bought on the cross by Jesus' sacrifice.
It is God's will for all believers to be whole, healthy and thriving in all areas of life: Spiritual, mental, emotional, physical and financial.
Jesus Christ was physically resurrected after three days following His death on the cross. Also, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; those that have salvation and those that have eternal separation.
Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for all who believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and have accepted salvation.
Following death, all unbelievers will be judged by God and sent to Hell where they will experience eternal separation from God as well as eternal suffering.
Jesus Christ will return to earth for the second time in order to establish His Kingdom.
