WHAT WE HOLD FAST TO
The Bible is the inspired inerrant Word of God.
In one God, eternally existent as three persons, Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
Jesus Christ is true God and true man, that He died on the cross and shed His blood as a sacrifice for sin; that He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
Man was created in the image of God, but fell into sin and can be justified only by grace through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
In the personal, literal second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ to judge both the living and the dead; in bodily resurrection of all the dead; in everlasting blessedness for the believer, and judgement and eternal punishment for the unbeliever.
In the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues, in divine healing, and in the gifts, fruit and anointed ministries of the Holy Spirit.
The gifts of the Holy Spirit are given to every believer and need to be stirred up and exercised to fulfil their divine purpose of blessing the Body of Christ.
In the full function of five-fold ministry viz.: apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, given to equip the saints so they can enter into the work of their ministry; thereby edifying the whole Body of Christ.
In the present day ministries of apostles and prophets, set in the church by Jesus Christ as foundational and revelatory ministries, being restored to full function, maturity and authority before the return of Jesus.
The church is God’s instrument to establish and extend His Kingdom until the literal coming of Jesus Christ to rule and reign over all the earth.
In the autonomy of each local church and that all itinerant ministries should be based out of and related to a local church with accountability to a senior minister.
