For the Word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged Sword, it penetrates even dividing Soul and Spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the Heart
- Salvation (John 3:16-17, Romans 10:8-9)
We believe Salvation is mankind’s only hope of redemption from the fallen sinful state through the blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Son – blood that was shed as Jesus died on the cross, and the regeneration by the Holy Spirit. Salvation is by Grace (Ephesians 2: 5, 8,9; Hebrews 11: 6) and men are justified by faith alone and are accounted righteous before God only through the merit of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (Romans 3: 10, 23, 24)
- The Word Of God (2 Timothy 3:16, Romans 10:17)
We believe The Bible is inspired by the Holy Spirit, it is infallible and authoritative Word of God.
- The Trinity (John 15:26)
We believe There is one God, eternally existent in three persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit
- The Gospel and Deity of Jesus Christ 2 Timothy 2:8, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 John 1:1 Colossians 2:9
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory
- Holy Spirit (John 20:22)
We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is our abiding helper, teacher, and guide. We believe Jesus is the one who baptizes us in the Holy Spirit, as a conscious experience, for ministry today.
- The difference between Indwelling and Baptism in the power of the “Holy Spirit“. (Acts 1:8)
We believe the indwelling and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit are two separate experiences
Holy Spirit was poured out on the church on the evening of the resurrection, when Jesus breathed upon His disciples (John 20:22) and told them to receive the Holy Spirit. This was the experience of receiving the indwelling Spirit. This is the one baptism referred to in I Corinthians 12:13, baptizing believers into the body of Christ.
These disciples and others would later receive the “Promise of the Father” (Acts 1:4)the mighty baptism in the Holy Spirit when the disciples who had earlier received the Spirit when Jesus breathed upon them and said, “Receive the Spirit”. Whereas the receiving of the Spirit on the evening of the resurrection was for life while the baptism in the Holy Spirit at Pentecost was to receive power and to release the gifts of the Spirit to them as well as for personal sanctification, building up the Church, gifting us for ministry, and driving back the kingdom of Satan by authority in Christ and through the power of the Holy Spirit.
All believers are entitled to receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit, and therefore should expect and earnestly seek the “Promise of the Father”, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The baptism in the Holy Spirit is separate from salvation, and follows the new birth experience (Acts 8:12-17,10:44-46,11:14-16,15:7-9).
The baptism in the Holy Spirit was the normal experience of all believers in the early Christian church.With the experience comes the provision of power for victorious Christian living and productive service. It also provides believers with specific spiritual gifts for more effective ministry (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4,8; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31). With this baptism come such experiences as an overflowing fullness of the Spirit (John 7:37-39; Acts 4:8), a depended reverence for God (Acts 2:43; Hebrews 12:28), an intensified commitment to God and dedication to His work (Acts 2:42), and a more active love for Christ, for His Word, and for those who have not yet become believers (Mark 16:20).
- Spiritual Gifts (1 Corinthians 12:8-10, Romans 12:6-8, Ephesians 4:11)
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the exercise of all Biblical gifts of the Spirit. We practice the laying on of hands for the empowering of the Spirit, for healing and deliverance and for impartation of gifts of the Holy Spirit and the recognition and the empowering of those whom God has ordained to lead the Church.
- The Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-19)
We believe in the great commission that was given to the Church by our Lord Jesus Christ , to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit
- The Full Gospel Of Christ (Mark 16:15, Luke 9:1-2, Luke 10:1-2, Matthew 10:8, John 14:12)
We believe in the full Gospel of Christ and the power and authority He gave to His disciples, which includes dominion over all the works of darkness, including sin, sickness, disease, and spiritual death. Holy Spirit is still doing everything He was doing in the New Testament Gospels through the church today. All authority in Christ is given to the Church to heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons and perform miracles to proclaim the Gospel of Christ and advance God’s Kingdom (Romans 15:19). God uses signs and wonders to confirm His Word (Mark 16:20)
