The Executive

  • We believe in the plenary verbal inspiration of the accepted canon of scriptures as originally given. The scriptures are infallible, inerrant and the sole and final authority for all matter of faith and conduct (2 Tim.3: 16, 1 Cor. 2:13).

  • We believe in the Eternal Godhead who has revealed Himself as one God existing in Three Persons; Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit, distinguishable but indivisible (Gen. 1:26, Matt 28:19, 2 Cor. 13:14). All the three have expressed themselves separate but at the same time are one (Isaiah 42:1, 48:16, Dan. 7:13)

  • We believe in the creation, test, and fall of man as recorded in the book of Genesis; his total spiritual depravity and inability to attain divine righteousness (Rom. 5:12-18).

  • We believe in the Lord Jesus. The Saviour of men, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, very God and very Man (Luke 1:26-35, John 1:14-18, Isaiah 7:14, 9; 6) .

  • We believe Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again the third day and personally appeared unto His disciples (1 Cor. 15:1-4, Rom. 4:25)

  • We believe in the bodily ascension of Jesus to heaven, his exaltation and personal, literal and bodily coming again the second time for his church (John 14:2-3, 1 Thess. 4:13-18)

  • We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith in the perfected sufficient work of the cross by which we obtain remission of sins (Eph.2:8- 9, Heb 9:12-22, Rom.5:11).

  • We believe in the necessity of water baptism by immersion in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in order to fulfil the command of Lord Jesus Christ (Matt. 28:19, Acts 2:34-36, 19:1-6).

  • We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as a real experience at or subsequent to salvation with the spiritual evidence: namely of speaking in tongues as the spirit gives utterance (Acts 2:1-4; 8:14-17, 10:44-46, Gal.3:14-15).

  • We believe in the operations of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit as enumerated in (1 Cor. 12:12-14, Rom. 12:6-8, Eph. 4:1-12, and as manifested in the early church.

  • We believe in the spirit-filled life of separation from the world and perfecting of holiness in the fear of God as expressing the true Christian faith (Eph. 5:18, 2 Cor 6,7:1)

  • We believe in the healing of the body by divine power or divine healing in its varied aspects as practiced in the early church and by medical care (1 Cor. 12:9, 1 Tim. 5:23-32, James 5:14, Acts 4:11).

  • We believe in the table of the Lord, commonly called the communion of the Lord’s Supper for believers (1 Cor.11:23-32, Matt 26:26-28).

  • We believe in the reality and personality of the devil and eternal judgment in the lake of fire for the devil and his angels (Mathew 25:41, Rev.20:14-15)

  • We believe in eternal life for believers (John 5:24, 3:16) and punishment for unbelievers (Mark 9:43-38, 2 Thes.1:9, Rev.20:10-25).

  • We believe that there is one true universal church made up of genuine believers (Acts 15:22, Mathew 16:18, 18:15-20).

  • We believe in the Holy Matrimony as originally instituted by God and stated in the scriptures (Gen. 2:18-25, Matt.19:3-9, Heb 13:4, 1Cor.7:1-6, 39, Eph.5:22-31).

  • We believe in the Great commission as given by our Lord and Master, Jesus Christ in Mathew 28:16-20, Mark 16:15-21, Acts 1:8, Luke 24:45-49, John 20:21).
