  3. We believe the Father is the source of all that exists whether of matter or spirit (Ps.68:5)

  6. We believe that the books of the Old and New Testament are the Holy Scriptures inspired by God and are the infallible word of God and are the final authourity for all Christian living. (2Tim.3:15-17)
  7. We believe that the two great commandments which require us to love the Lord our God with all the heart, mind and strength and our neighbor as ourselves summarise God’s law as it is revealed in scripture.(Matt.5:44-48)
  8. We believe that monogamy is God’s plan for expression of sexuality between one man and one woman in holy matrimony. (Gen.1:27:28)
  9. We believe that God created man with a free will to chose between right and wrong and is therefore responsible for his choices. (Gen.6:5;8:21)
  10. We believe that Christ offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the whole world, both original sin and acquired sin and that through this single act of suffering and death on the cross all men have the free offer of salvation.(John 3:16)
  11. We believe that man has the responsibility to put to use what God has graciously offered through His Son through repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.(mark 1:15)
  12. We believe that when man repents of his sins and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ, he in the same moment is justified, regenerated, and adopted into the family of God and assured of his salvation through the witness of the Holy Spirit.(John 1:12-13; Romans 8:16-17)
  13. We believe that a man can lose his salvation after repentance if he falls into sin and fails to repent of it.(matt.18:21-22)
  14. We believe in the sanctification of the believers by the power of the Holy Spirit and that it starts as initial sanctification at regeneration and becomes progressive sanctification as the believer continues to surrender more of himself to God and finally becomes entirely sanctified when he surrenders his entire life to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.(Ezek.36:25-29)
  15. We believe in the Gift of the Holy Spirit that it is primarily the Holy Spirit Himself and He manifests in various gifts of the Spirit in the believer which He in His wisdom graciously gives to all believers.(1Cor.12:1-14:40)
