What We believe

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6 NKJV

As a strong mainstream Pentecostal church we accept fully the teaching of the Elim Denomination and in line with the Evangelical Alliance statement of faith.

We believe . . .

the Bible as originally given, to be without error, the fully inspired and infallible Word of God and the supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

We believe . . .

in the true and proper deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His real and complete humanity, in His sinless life, in His authoritative teaching, in His substitutionary and atoning sacrifice through His blood shed, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His heavenly intercession and His second advent to receive His Church.

We believe . . .

in the necessity for salvation of repentance towards God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ by which the sinner is pardoned and accepted as righteous in God’s sight. This justification is imputed by the grace of God because of the atoning work of Christ, is received by faith alone and is evidenced by the Fruit of the Spirit and a holy life.

We believe . . .

in the baptism of believers in water in obedience to the command of Christ and the commemoration of Christ’s death by the observance of the Lord’s Supper until His return.

We believe . . .

that the Godhead exists co-equally and co-eternally in three persons Father, Son and Holy Spirit and that these three are one God, sovereign in creation, providence and redemption.

We believe . . .

in the Deity of the Holy Spirit and of the necessity of His work in conviction of sin, repentance, regeneration and sanctification and that the believer is promised an endowment of power through the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with signs following.

We believe . . .

in the spiritual unity and the priesthood of all believers in Christ and that these comprise the universal Church, the Body of Christ.

We believe . . .

that the Gospel embraces the needs of the whole man and that the Church is therefore commissioned to preach the gospel to the world and to fulfil a ministry of healing and deliverance to the spiritual and physical needs of mankind.

We believe . . .

that the Godhead exists co-equally and co-eternally in three persons Father, Son and Holy Spirit and that these three are one God, sovereign in creation, providence and redemption.

We believe . . .

in the universal sinfulness and guilt of all mankind since the fall, rendering man subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.

We believe . . .

in the ministries that Christ has set in His church, namely Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers, and in their present operation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

We believe . . .

in the resurrection of the dead and in the final judgement of the world, the eternal conscious bliss of the righteous and the eternal conscious punishment of the wicked.
