Article VI — DOCTRINAL STATEMENT OF FAITH

Among other equally Biblical truths, we believe in: –

(a) The Bible, the Word of God; in its divine, verbal, plenary inspiration, its inerrancy and infallibility in the original manuscripts; and its supreme and final authority in faith and life (II Tim. 3:16, II Pet. 1:20-21);

(b) One God eternally existing in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19; II Cor. 13:14);

(c) The Lord Jesus Christ:

  1. His essential, absolute and eternal Deity (Phil. 2:6; John 1:4, 14; Heb. 1:8);
  1. His true and sinless humanity (1 Pet. 2:22, 1 John 3:5);
  1. His virgin birth (Isa. 7:14; Matt. 1:20);
  1. His substitutionary, propitiatory death (Matt. 20:28; Mark 1: 45; 1 Tim. 2:6);
  1. His body resurrection (John 20:19-20);
  1. His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19; Luke 24:51); and
  1. His personal, visible and bodily coming again with power and great glory (Titus 2:13; John 14:2,3; Rev. 19:11-16);

(d) The Holy Spirit, who shows the redeeming purpose of God to the world by convicting the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment (John 16:7-11); and by regenerating (Titus 3:5); uniting to Christ (1 Cor. 12:14); indwelling (John 16:13) and empowering for service (1Cor. 12:4-11), all who place complete faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (Gal. 5:5);

(e) The total depravity of man because of the fall (Gen.3:10-24, Rom 6:23),

(f) Salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ apart from works (Eph. 2:8);

(g) The everlasting bliss of the saved and the eternal suffering of the lost (Daniel 12:2; Luke 16:24-26; John 5:28; Rev. 20:14);

(h) The real spiritual unity in Christ of all redeemed by his precious Blood (1 Cor. 12:13; Eph. 1:4-6; 4:11-15; 5:25-26); and

(i) The necessity of maintaining, according to the Word of God, the purity of the Church in doctrine and life (1 Cor. 6: 19-20; 1 Thess. 4:3).

(j) The belief of Resurrection of Believers in Christ and the final judgment day of the Lord where all men shall be rewarded according to their deeds whether good or bad i.e. ( Heaven, eternal life, and torment in Hell respectively)
