Tenets of Faith

Tenets of Faith

  • The Word of God (scripture) is the final authority and dependable, without fault, given for the purpose of guiding man to salvation 2 Tim. 3:14 -17
  • The Triune God, The Scripture reveals that there are three distinct Persons in the Godhead, named the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The entire undivided unity of the Divine Spirit exists as a Trinity that is equal and alike in nature and attributes. They are distinct in their personalities, each having His own mind and will, and each engaged on His own work, yet essentially one in will, purpose and activity. These three Persons are numerically one substance or essence, and constitute one invisible God (Isa. 48: 16; Matt 28:19; Luke 22:24; John 5:18; 10:30; 16: 7,13-15; 17:22-24; Rom. 8:26, 27, 32; llCor. 13:14; Eph. 4:4-6 )
  • God is eternal, or self-existent. God the Father is the Creator of heavens and earth. He alone is thus: for every other being derives existence from ‘Him and is maintained by God alone and the sustainer all things. There is but one God, Having no beginning, He can have no ending, whereas His creatures who have immortality possess it by endowment only (Neh. 9:6; Psalm 90:2:139; Col. 1:16,17; 1 Tim. 1:17)
  • God is infinite, whatever He possesses He possesses in infinite degree, naturally and morally, and is perfect in all His ways (Psalm 147:5; Jer.23:24), eternal and perfect in holiness, truth and love.
  • God’s natural attributes perfectly fit Him to be the absolute Sovereign of the creation and because His Glory rests not only on the existence of these attributes but also on the use He makes of them. God’s moral character is of infinite interest and importance. The flawless glory of all the divine perfections in union, therefore, is their manifestation of God’s character as benevolent which is the sum of all His moral perfections (Exo. 33:18, 19; 34:5-7)
  • God the Son, Jesus was supernaturally conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of Virgin Mary, and was without sin. He was the vicarious sacrifice of the sin of all mankind through His death on the cross. He rose from the dead in His own glorious body, appeared to many, ascended unto Heaven, and will return to earth in power and glory. He is the Head of the body – the Christ (Colo. 1:18; Eph. 5:23)
  • God the Holy spirit convicts the World of sin due to utter depravity of human nature, God requires repentance and righteousness from all (Act 11:18; 17:30). Therefore, Regeneration (or a “new birth”) is essential, for man’s own depraved nature is incapable of a life pleasing to God (Ezek. 36: 26; John 3: 3, 6) thus, unites man to Jesus Christ in faith, brings about new birth, and become a gift of the Church
  • The Baptism of the Holy spirit are available to all who believe in Jesus Christ, and will totally surrender their lives to the complete, perfect will of God (Mat. 3: 16)
  • The Gift of the Holy spirit are available through the Holy spirit and fruit of the Holy spirit( Gal . 5:22,23) is the character of God and must be evident in the life of every disciple as pre-condition for the resting and manifestation of the seven spirits of God (Isaiah 11:1,2, Rev 1:4,4:5;5:6) are for the church today.
  • Man was created in the image and the likeness of God. Through the original sin of Adam and Eve, mankind fell from God and became sinful in nature. He is totally incapable of returning to God himself and he is lost without hope, apart from the salvation of Jesus Christ.

…transforming lives!

  • There is no other name except that of Jesus Christ by which men may be saved; man is born again by the Holy Spirit trusting in Christ and His vicarious death (Act. 4:12; John 4:12)
  • The church is the Body and Bride of Christ, with the mission is to take the gospel to all men in all Nations to make disciples of them (Rev. 21:9,10-19; 19:7-9; 2 Cor. 11-12)
  • The consummation of all things including the visible personal return of Jesus, the return of the dead and the translation of those alive in Christ into the presence of God, the marriage supper of the Lamb, the Millennial of Christ and the final Judgement to man if he refuses to repent in his earthly life, passes under the judgement of God (Luke 13:3; Rom. 2:5, 6; Heb. 9:27). The suffering of such impenitent wicked has no end (Rev. 14: 9-11), and there is no possibility, after death, of repentance or escape from sin and its punishment (Luke 16: 26; Rev. 22:11)
