Mission Statement

LISTED BELOW ARE OUR STATEMENT OF BELIEF 1. The One True God: The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self - existent "I Am", the creator of the universe and the Redeemer of mankind (Deut. 6: 4; Ex. 3 : 14; Isa. 43: 10, 11). God has further revealed Himself as a triune being manifested as Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Isa. 48: 16; Matt. 28 : 19; Lk. 3 : 22) 2. The Scriptures Inspired: The scriptures, both the Old and the New testament, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct (II Tim. 3 : 15 - 17, I Thes. 2 : 13; II Pet. 1 : 21) 3. The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ: The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God and as such, shares in the divinity and deity of God (Matt. 1: 23; Jn. 5: 22, 23:; II Jn. 3; Heb. 1 : 1 - 13). 4. Original Sin and the Fall of Man: Man was created good and upright; for God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to our likeness" (Gen. 1 : 26). The First man, Adam, through disobedience, fell from the grace of God and thus entered into the world and death by sin. Adam's transgression incurred not only physical death of man but also spiritual death, which is eternal separation from God (Gen. 2 : 17); 3 : 6 - 24). Man's propensity to sin because of his sinful nature necessitates salvation from the power of sin and Saviour to provide that salvation (Rom. 5:12 - 21). 5. The Salvation of Man: Man's only hope of redemption and salvation from the power of sin is through the shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 4: 12, Rom. 5 : 8 - 13, 10 : 9; Jas. 1 : 21; Eph. 2: 8) 6. Christ the One Shepherd: Jesus is the Good Shepherd (Jn. 10 : 11) and the Great Shepherd (Heb. 13 : 20). There is only one spiritual shepherd referred to in the New Testament, and Jesus is the One (Jn. 10. 16). 7. THE CHURCH AND ITS MISSION: The Church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Holy Spirit with divine appointments for the fulfillment of its great Commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an intergral part of the general assembly and the Church of the first born, which was written in heaven (Eph. 1 : 22, 23; 2 : 22; Heb. 12: 23). Since God's purpose concerning man is to seek and save that which is lost, to be worshipped by man and to build a body of believers in the image of His Son, the responsibility of the Church is: a. To be an agency of God for evangelizing the world (Acts 1 : 8; Matt. 28 : 19, 20; Mk. 16 : 15, 16). b. To be a corporate body in which man may worship God (1 Cor. 12 : 13). c. To be a channel of God's purpose to build a body of saints being perfected in the image of His Son (Eph. 4 : 11 - 16; I Cor. 12 : 28; 14 : 12). 8. The Ordinances of the Church a. Baptist in Water : The ordinance of baptism by immersion in water is commanded in scripture. All who repent of their sins and believe in Christ as savior and Lord are to be baptised. This is a declaration to the world that they identify with Christ in His death and have been raised with Him in newness of life [Matt. 28:19; Mk. 16:16; Acts 10:47, 48; Rom 6;4]. b. The lord's supper or holy communion : The Lord's supper, consisting of the elements- bread and the cup of the fruit of the vine-is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our lord ( II Pet. 1;4); a memorial of His suffering and death (I Cor. 11:26);a prophesy of His second coming (I Cor. 11;26); and is enjoined on all believers until He comes! 9. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit : The baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is evidence by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the spirit of God gives utterance (Acts 2;4) With the baptism in the Holy Spirit comes the enduement of power for life and service, the bestowments of the gifts or enablements of the Holy Spirit and their uses in the ministry of the body of Christ (LK. 24:49;Act 1:4,8; I Cor. 12 :1-31). This experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth (Acts 8:12-17; 10:44-16:11:14, 15;15;17-9). 10.Divine Healing : Divine healing was provided for in the Old Testament (ex 15:23-26; Psa. 103:1-3; Isa. 53:4,5) and is an integral part of the Gospel (Matt.8:16,17; Acts 5:16:Jas.14-16). 11. The Second Advent of Christ: The second coming of Christ includes the catching away of the church (1Thes. 4,16,17), followed by the actual, visible return of Christ with His saints (the church) to reign with Him on earth for one thousand years (Zech. 14: 5; Matt. 24: 27, 30; Rev. 1:7; 19:11-14; 20:1-6). This millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel (Ezek. 39:28, 29; Zeph. 3:19,20; Rom. 11:26, 27) and the establishment of universal peace (Isa. 11: 6-9; Psa.72:3-8; Mic. 4:3,4). 12. The Final Judgement: There will be a final judgement in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life will be consigned, together with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, to everlasting punishment in the lake which is the second death (Matt.25:46;Mk. 9:43;-48; Rev. 19: 20; 20:11-15;21:8). 13. The New Heavens and the New Earth: We, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells'' (II Pet. 3:13 and Rev. 21:22).
