THE SCRIPTURES INSPIRED

The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct.

  • 2 Timothy 3:15-17

  • 2 Peter 1:21

THE FALL OF MAN

Man was created good and upright; for God said, “Let us make man in our own image, after our likeness.” However, man by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God.

  • Genesis 1:26,27
  • Genesis 2:17
  • Genesis 3:6
  • Romans 5:12-19

​​THE SALVATION OF MAN

Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God.

Conditions to Salvation

Salvation is received through repentance towards God and faith towards the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life.

  • Luke 24:47
  • John 3:3
  • Romans 1-:13-15
  • Ephesians 2:8
  • Titus 2:11
  • Titus 3:5-7

The Evidence of Salvation

The inward evidence of salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit.

  • Romans 8:16

The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness.

  • Ephesians 4:24
  • Titus 2:12

THE ORDINANCES OF THE CHURCH

Baptism In Water

The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded by the Scripture. All who repent and believe in Christ as Saviour and Lord are to be baptized. Thus they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life.

  • Matthew 28:19
  • Mark 16:16
  • Acts 10:47,48
  • Romans 6:4

Holy Communion

The Lord ‘s Supper, consisting of the element –bread and the fruit of the vine– is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:4), a memorial of his suffering and death (1 Corinthians 11:26), and a prophecy of His second coming )1 Corinthians 11:26), and is enjoined on all believers “till He come!”

THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. With it comes the enduement of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry.

  • Luke 24:49
  • Acts 1:4
  • Acts 1:8
  • 1 Corinthians 12:1-31

This experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth.

  • Acts 8:12-17
  • Acts 10:44-46
  • Acts 11:14-16
  • Acts 15:7-9

With the baptism in the Holy Spirit come such experience as:

  • an overflowing fullness of the Spirit, John 7:37-39, Acts 4:8
  • a deepened reverence for God, Acts 2:43. Hebrews 12:28
  • an intensified consecration to God and dedication to His work, Acts 2:42
  • and a more active love for Christ, for His Word and for the lost, Mark 16:20
