Faith Statement

All the Ministry’s beliefs herein referred to as Statement of Faith and concisely and concretely in full agreement with the Holy Scriptures contained and maintained in the Holy Bible, thus the Ministry believes in: –

Ø  The Church: We believe that the Church is the body of Christ of which Jesus is the Head and whose members are those who have truly received Christ by faith. The local church is a tangible expression of the body of Christ in a particular location. Since all members of the body of Christ are united in Christ by the same spirit, they should live in love, harmony and unity being intent on the same purpose and accepting those sectarian or denominational practices which are based on a sincere interpretation of the Bible, which do not relate the substantive doctrinal matters, and which do not in practice cause disunity or hinder the ministry. The purpose of the church is to make Christ known to lost men, to make disciples and glorified God on earth (Acts 1:8 ,  1 Cor. 12 : 12 – 27 , Ephesians. 1 : 20 – 23,  4 : 1 – 6  ;  4 : 12 – 16  ; Matt. 28 : 18 – 20  ;  John 17,  Col. 1 : 24 – 29).   

Ø  The Scriptures: We believe that the entire Bible is the inspired word of God and that men of God were moved by the Holy Spirit to write the very words of the scriptures. The Bible is therefore without error (inerrant) in its original manuscripts. God has supernaturally preserved the Bible and it is the sole and final authority for faith and life providing, encouragement, guidance, comfort and instruction for training in righteousness. (2 Timothy 3 : 16 – 17 ;  2 Peter 1 : 20 – 21).   

Ø  The Holy Bible: We believe that the Holy Bible is truly the inspired, infallible and authoritative word of God and as such the only rule and standard that is binding to Christians in all matters of faith, worship and conduct for all the Ministry’s members. (2 Tim 3: 16 – 17).

Ø  Only One God: We believe in the existence of only one holy, divine, majestic, omnipotent and omniscient God eternally living in three spiritual persons of the blessed Holy Trinity namely God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit who are all three in one and in one perfect accord and vice versa.

Ø  Deity of Jesus Christ: – We believe in the perfect deity and perfect humanity of our LORD and SAVIOUR Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life in heaven and on earth, His death, burial and bodily resurrection, His bodily ascension in glory to the right hand side of God the Father in heaven and His personal future return (second coming) to earth in power and glory to judge all the dead and the living and after judgement, to rule all the nations of the world.

Ø  Doctrine of Christ: – That any of its member/ members who does/do not obey and cherish the teachings of Jesus Christ, for holy, reputable, acceptable and harmonious living with other societies or personalities in line with the Holy Scriptures cannot be eligible for membership or may seize to be one.

Ø  Need for A Saviour: – We believe that all human beings wherever they can be found are in desperate need of a saviour because of the universal sinfulness and guilt of human nature since the fall of mankind into sin which has rendered all human beings sinful and powerless, over sin thus making all human beings subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.

Ø  Salvation: – We believe that the only means of Salvation available to all mankind is by God’s grace through hearing the gospel message, putting faith in Jesus Christ, repentance, confession and being baptized into Christ by total immersion in water for the remission of sin unto Salvation. The same salvation can be in the person of Jesus Christ only and can be attained an enjoyed by fulfilling the above mentioned conditions.

Ø  Prayer of Faith: – We believe that the Name of Jesus Christ through his redemptive work on the cross of Calvary has power to save, heal, forgive sins, resurrect and restore health and holiness in answer to the prayer of faith.

Ø  Holy Practice: We believe in the four sacraments of the Holy Scriptures; namely Baptism by total immersion in water (leading to the in filling of the Holy Spirit), the Holy Communion (the Lord’s supper), Holy Matrimony and the Dedication of Children and that all these sacraments are to be as commanded by the Holy Scriptures, in Public and by authorized church ministers.

Ø  The salvation is in Jesus Christ, by only accepting him in one’s life with full conscience and sober mind as the Saviour of the whole world (Romans 10:17), Heb 9:22)

Ø  His omnipotence and omnipresence in the Church, His Holy and universal – church which he established on earth.         

Ø  Heaven and Hell: We believe that there is going to be eternal life in heaven for the righteous and that there will be punishment in hell for the wicked in the lake of fire that burns with sulphur.

Ø  Tithe and love Offerings: we believe that every willing member is to give voluntary tithes and love offerings of all his/her income to the Ministry as commanded in Holy Scriptures as a means of supporting the Ministry, fellowshipping in God’s work and opening God’s door of outpouring His blessing in the same. (Malachi 3 : 10).
