We believe in the existence of the only one, true and living God, who exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. They are distinct in person, but having the same attribute, perfection and nature; and each is worthy of obedience and worship. [Matt. 3:16; 17; John 1:1,14; 10:30; 14:26; 15:26]


We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, begotten of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary without sin, died on the cross in our place, was buried, rose again on the third day and ascended to heaven, where He sits at the right hand of God until His enemies become His footstool. [Luke 1:26-33; 22:20; 24:46].


We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead, and that He is the chief agent in the regeneration of the soul, baptizing the believer into the body of Christ, and permanently indwells and fills the believer with the evidence of speaking in tongues for kingdom empowerment. [1 Cor. 12:1-11; Titus 3:5-14; Mat. 3:11].


We believe that the bible is the written Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and is the foundation from which all claims of truth are substantiated, and is failsafe in the original writings. [2 Tim. 3:16-17].


We believe that when a person hears the gospel and puts his or her faith in Jesus Christ by accepting His Lordship over his or her life, he or she becomes a born again believer. [2 Cor. 5:7; Rom. 10:9-10; 5:7-11; Eph. 1:7].


We believe that salvation and our spirituality is sustained by God and not by our works. When the Holy Spirit indwells a believer. He seals them permanently for all eternity. [ Jude 24-25; John 10:27-29; Eph. 2:8- 9; 1 Peter 1:5; Phil. 1:6].


We believe that the church is God's agent, that will usher in the kingdom of God on earth. Jesus Christ is the head of the church and the Holy Spirit is our guide, and the purpose of the church is to equip the saints through set ministries for the work of the ministry. [Eph. 4:11-16; Acts 6:3].


We believe in the individual priesthood of the believers where there is no mediator between man and God other than Jesus Christ. [1 Peter 2:9-10; Heb. 4:14-15, 5:2].
