Beliefs

Scripture: Both the Old and New Testament comprise the Scripture. It is entirely God-breathed, meaning that it is only and wholly by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. It is infallible being sufficient for a believer to equip him or her with all direction, instruction, teaching and ability (2 Tim. 2:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:20-21).

God-Head: There is only one living true God. He is the Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer and Judge of all things. He made Himself known to us in three Persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. He is Almighty, all-wise, omniscient, omnibenevolent, all-knowing, merciful, everlasting, inscrutable, Holy and unchanging (Ps. 89:11; Mk. 12:29; 1 Tim. 2:5; Ps. 139:1-16; Mic. 5:2; Heb. 1;12; Isa. 40:38; John 3:16; Ps. 89:14; 1 Pet. 1:16; 2 Tim. 2:13).

God the Father: God is referred to as the Father. He is over all things. As the Father, He is with a fatherly spirit toward all. Yet, He is also the Father of all who have become His children through Jesus Christ. (1 Cor. 8:6; Eph. 4:6; Isa. 63:16-17; 1 John 3:1; John 6:45).

God the Son: Jesus is God the Son that came from the Father by the work of the Holy Spirit. He was born to a virgin. He was God in the flesh and at no time was devoid of His God-nature. He came to fulfill the work the Father appointed to Him, namely, to offer Himself as a sacrifice on the cross. By His sufferings and shedding of the blood the sin (sins) of all who believed in Him is removed forever. He died in our stead. In His name alone there is salvation. He is the Head of the church and at His second coming will hand over the kingdom to the Father. He is the Sustainer of the believers (Matt. 1:18; John 1:14; Col. 2:9; Isa. 53:4-5; Acts 4:12; Eph. 5:23; 1 Cor. 15:24; Col. 2:19).

God the Spirit: The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Jesus and the Spirit of God. He indwells believers permanently. He can be made to grieve and made to rejoice. He is the Person of God that works in believers in the absence of Jesus in the flesh. God avails gifts to believers by Him. He leads, teaches, gives power to, uplifts and energizes believers so that they reach the fullness of God in Christ. Jesus is received by a person as his or her personal Savior because of His work. He is the sole guide to the Scripture, the Word of God. God resides in a believer in Him (Rom. 8:9; Eph. 4:30; Rom. 14:17; John 16:7-15; Eph. 3:16-19; 1 Cor. 12:3; 1 Cor. 2:12-13; 1 Cor. 12:7-11; 1 Cor. 3:16).

Sin: Through the sin of Adam and Eve all men have inherently become sinners. They acquired the sin nature and though they are not born sinners, they eventually become sinners by acting according to their acquired nature. When Adam and Eve separated from God through sin, they became the cause to all who are born of them to naturally disobey God. Fearing the consequences of his or her actions is a sign that a person has sinned against God (Gen. 3; Eph. 2:1-3).

Cancellation of Sin: Man’s sin is cancelled only by the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. The sin nature in him, though not removed, is cancelled only by Christ’s blood. In other words, Jesus’ blood pacified God to forget the sin nature in a believer (Heb. 8:12; 7:25; Col. 1:14; Rom. 3:23-25).

Salvation: Salvation can never be or is never by any estimable work we do. It is a gift of God through His grace. It requires faith in Jesus that is acceptable to God. In other words, it is being born again. Once a person is saved, he or she ought to live in accordance to God’s desire toward them (Eph. 2:4-10; Rom. 10:8-11; John 3:3; Rom. 12:1-2).

Church: The church is a group of believers, the body of Jesus Christ that belongs to God. They are the called by God for salvation to execute His purpose. By being in the body believers receive the privilege of being continually sanctified in the Spirit, thus, keeping them for eternal life. They are the way to wisdom for the world (Eph. 1:5; 1:22-23; 3:10; 5:25-27; 1 Pet. 1:2).

Creation: The entire creation, whether seen or unseen, is unequivocally created by the hand of God. There is no other power or entity that has usurpation over creation (Gen. 1; Col. 1:16-17).

Man: Man was perfectly created by God in His own image. He was not formed out of some sudden burst of energy; He is a fantastic creation of God (Gen. 1:26-28; 2:8).

Walk of Faith: Once a person becomes a Christian everything in his or her life hinges on their walk of faith. This necessitates walking by the Spirit. The fruit the Spirit begets in them is the proof of their walk of faith. It has blessings from God. Walk of faith is a deliberate act, one that garners an intimate relationship with the Lord and denotes that we have chosen God above all else. Its chief component is the will of God (Phil. 2:12-13; Gal. 5:16-17; Heb. 6:7-8; Josh. 24:14-15; Eph. 5:14-17).

Role of Christians: Every believer is essentially a Levite to the Lord. Since the Lord calls every believer with a purpose and gives gift(s) to them by His measure, they are all called to serve Him in their capacities. The Bible specifies that every believer is God’s workmanship created for good works in Christ (Matt. 28:19‑20; Rom. 12:3‑8; Eph. 2:10).
