our tenets of faith

TENET (1) Of God

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


TENET (2) Of the Scriptures

We believe the Bible to be the divinely inspired and authoritative Word of God. As such, it is absolutely supreme and all-sufficient in all matters of faith and practice.


TENET (3) Of the Sin of Man

We believe that our first parents, Adam and Eve, being tempted of Satan, chose evil and so fell away from God and came under the power of darkness, the penalty of which is eternal death; that, by reason of this disobedience, sin passed unto all men, and that we have broken God’s law and that no man can be saved but by His grace through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.


TENET (4) Of the Grace of God

We believe that God, out of His great love for the world, gave His only begotten Son to be the saviour of sinners and in the Gospel freely offers His all-sufficient salvation to all men.


TENET (5) Of the Lord Jesus Christ

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless human 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 future personal, visible and bodily return in power and glory.


TENET (6) Of the Holy Spirit

We believe in the present-day ministry of the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and the Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment. His ministry is to regenerate, seal, sanctify, fill, empower and equip with spiritual gifts those who believe in Jesus Christ, enabling them to live a Christ-like life.


TENET (7) Of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

We believe that it is the privilege of all believers to be filled with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking with other tongues: an experience distinct from and subsequent to the new birth.


TENET (8) Of Regeneration

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. Salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.


TENET (9) Of Faith and Repentance

We believe that we are saved through faith in Jesus Christ and that this saving faith is always accompanied by repentance, whereby we forsake our sins and live in new obedience to God through His Word.


TENET (10) Of Justification and Sonship

We believe that God, on the sole ground of the perfect obedience and sacrifice of Jesus Christ, pardons those who by faith receive Him as their Saviour and Lord, accepts them as righteous and bestows upon them the adoption of sons, whereby we call God, Father.


TENET (11) Of the Ministry

We believe that Jesus Christ, as the Supreme Head of the church has appointed the five-fold ministry: Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers, for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the Body of Christ and that His church ordains them to this Ministry.


TENET (12) Of the Resurrection of the Believer

We believe in the Bodily Resurrection of those who have died in Christ and their translation together with those that are alive and remain until the coming of our Lord.


TENET (13) Of the Resurrection of the Unbeliever

We believe that “the fearful and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone; which is the second death.” 


TENET (14) Of the Lake of Fire

We believe that Satan and his angels shall be eternally confined to the lake of fire.


TENET (15) Of the New Heaven and New Earth

We believe that there shall be “new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.” 


TENET (16) Divine Healing

We believe that divine healing provided in the atonement of Christ is the privilege of all believers.
