ON THE 6TH DECEMBER 2002.
The Scriptures: Are the infallible and authoritative word of God, without error, given for the purpose of directing man to salvation.
The Triune God: Consists of The Father; the Son, Jesus Christ; and The Holy Spirit. They are coexistent, co-eternal and co-equal.
God The Father: Is the Creator of heaven and earth and the sustainer of all things. There is but one God infinite, eternal and perfect in holiness, truth and love.
God The Son, Jesus: Was supernaturally conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and was without sin. He was the vicarious sacrifice of the sin of all humanity through His death on the cross. He arose from the dead in His own glorified body, appeared to many, ascended into heaven and will return to earth in power and glory. He is now the Head of His body, the church. God The Holy Spirit: Convicts the world of Sin, righteousness and judgement. Unites man to Jesus Christ in faith, brings about the new birth and dwells within the believers enabling Him to grow in sanctification and righteousness and become a gift of God to the church. The Baptism in Waters: According to the Gospel of St. Mark chapter 16 verse 15&16, Jesus Christ gave to His disciples a commandment to preach the word to all humankind and said that; whosoever believes in the preaching of the gospel, had to be baptized in order to be saved. We believe that to be baptized is the burial of the old creature with his sins and the factor of one’s acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour of his life. The Baptism with the Holy Spirit: Is available to all who believe in Jesus Christ and will totally surrender their lives to the complete, perfect will of God.
The Gifts of The Holy Spirit (word of knowledge, wisdom, faith, healings, working of miracles, prophecy, discernment, speaking of tongues): are available through The Holy Ghost and are for the church today! Man: Was created in the image and likeness of God. Through the original sin of Adam and Eve, humankind has fallen from God and became sinful in nature. He is completely incapable of returning to God by himself and is lost, and only through Jesus Christ there is hope and eternal salvation. The Church: Is the Body and Bride of Christ, whose task is to take the gospel to all men in all nations and to make disciples of them. “The church must be an example.”
The consummation of all things includes the visible, personal return of Jesus Christ, the resurrection of the dead and the translation of those alive in Christ into the presence of God for eternity.
