The Doctrinal Statement, or Statement of Faith, outlines our understanding of biblical truths in line with Pentecostal, Apostolic Christian philosophy based on true Kingdom advancement. It serves as the foundation of our teaching philosophy and curricula, and is supported by other Christian institutions, ministries and members of the Christian faith, preventing drift in a constantly changing culture.
The Holy Trinity
We believe in the doctrine of the triune God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, three eternal beings of the same essence, equal in nature, power, and glory, possessing exactly the same divine perfections and are eternally one. All things visible and invisible have a single creator and preserver, according to our belief.
God the Father
We believe that God is the sovereign and supreme Father, the only eternal Father. As an act of grace and unadulterated divine goodness, He creates and preserves everything.
God the Son
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, completely and truly became a man after being conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, in order to reveal God and redeem fallen mankind. We hold that the Lord Jesus Christ, as a propitiatory and substitutionary offering on the cross, completed our redemption. We also hold that His physical resurrection from the dead makes our redemption possible. We hold that the Lord Jesus Christ is currently in heaven, elevated before the throne of the Father, where He performs the priestly office on behalf of all believers. We believe in the bodily return of the Lord Jesus Christ to judge the living and the dead.
God the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit of the Blessed Trinity. He resides within every Christian, draws people to Himself through the Gospel, enlightens them with His gifts, sanctifies the entire earthly church, and upholds it in communion with Jesus Christ in the one and only true faith.
The Word of God
All sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments—whose original writings are infallible as to truth and plenary and verbal inspiration as the divinely inspired Word of God—are accepted by us as the sole infallible authority in all matters of faith and practise.
Creation and the Fall
We believe that God created ex-nihilo and formed the universe in six days as described in Genesis chapter one. We hold that despite being made in God’s image and likeness, humanity fell from grace through Adam’s disobedience, developing a sinful nature and becoming subject to death. We believe that God also created free-willed spirit beings while some disobeyed God and others are actively working against God’s intentions. These disobedient spirit beings are variously called fallen angels, demons and the devil.
We hold that salvation is a gift of God given to man by grace, acquired by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ rather than through works and that this faith is displayed in godly works.
Water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are two rituals or ordinances that we believe the Lord has given the church to practice.
We believe that the eternal state of the saved believer in Jesus Christ is a conscious and everlasting blessed union with God in contrast to a state of damnation and punishment of the unsaved—an eternal separation from God.
"But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ"
(Philippians 3:20 ESV)
