What We Believe

  • We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, in their original writing, literally as entirely inspired by God and accept them as the supreme and final authority for faith and life.
  • We believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Father, conceived by the Holy Spirit and is indeed and man.
  • We believe that God created man in His image; that man sinned and thereby incurred the penalty of sin which is death physically and spiritually; that all human beings inherit a sinful nature which issues (in the case of those who reach moral responsibility) in actual transgression involving personal guilt.
  • We believe in marriage relationships between a natural man and a natural woman within the confines of lawful matrimony, as Scripture prescribes. Any behaviour outside the boundries of Scripture cannot be evaluated as there is no framework provided in Scripture to do so. 
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins a substitutionary sacrifice according to the Scriptures and that all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood.
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus, His ascension into Heaven, and His present life as our High Priest and Advocate.
  • We believe in the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that all who repent of their sin and receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.
  • We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit, empowering and equipping believers for service, with the accompanying supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit; and in fellowship with the Holy Spirit. We believe in the divinely ordained ministries of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher.
  • With regards to submission to authority, we believe in the principle of being in power because you are under authority. As such, it is understood that membership shall be subject to submission to authority in matters about church governance, doctrine and personal behaviour. Each student should, therefore, conduct themselves according to the power of the congregation they belong.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the just and the unjust, the eternal blessedness of the redeemed, and the perpetual banishment of those who have rejected the offer of salvation.
  • We believe that the one true Church is the whole company of those who have been redeemed by Jesus Christ and regenerated by the Holy Spirit; that the local church on earth should take its character from this concept of the Church spiritual and therefore, that the new birth and personal confession of Christ are essentials of church membership.
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ appointed two ordinances – Baptism in water and the Lord’s Supper to be observed as acts of obedience and as perpetual witnesses to the cardinal facts of the Christian faith. Baptism is a confession of identification with Christ in burial and resurrection and that the Lord’s Supper is the partaking of the emblems symbolic of the Saviour’s broken body and shed blood, in remembrance of His sacrificial death, until he comes.
  • We believe that divine healing was provided for in the Old and New Testament and is an integral part of the Gospel.
  • We believe that the Bible teaches that without holiness, no man can see the Lord. We believe in the doctrine of sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of the new birth and continuing until the consummation of salvation.
