What We Believe
We hold dearly the truths of the Bible:
We preach the gospel of salvation: repentance in the heart – believing the finished work of the Lord Jesus on the cross. The Lord spoke of His blood which “is shed for you” (Luke 22: 20). John 3: 16 says “whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Knowing in your heart that the Lord has forgiven you of your sins, you are able to forgive others. Matthew 6: 14 states: “For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you”.
Who Jesus truly is: The God of the Old Testament came down and He was called Jesus. Isaiah 9: 6 states: “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” The person that died on the cross for our sins was “The mighty God’ in human form. Colossians 1: 16 states: “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him”. John 1: 10 states: “He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.”
Fruits of the Spirit and Gifts of the Spirit: The Bible mentions nine fruits of the Spirit. Galatians 5: 22-23 states: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” There are also nine gifts of the Spirit. I Corinthians 12: 8-11 states: “For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.”
God’s Foreknowledge: Ephesians 1: 4 states: “According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love”. Isaiah 46: 10 states: “Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure”. The Lord already knows all things that are still in the future. No bird falls to the ground without His pre-approval; the very hairs of our heads are all numbered (Matthew 10: 29-30). The Lord “worketh all things after the counsel of his own will” (Ephesians 1: 11). Ecclesiastes 3: 1 says “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven”. Knowing the greatness of our God creates faith.
Life Hereafter: 2 Corinthians 5: 8 says “to be absent from the body” is “to be present with the Lord.” Jesus said in John 11: 25-26 “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.”
The end-time revival: We are now in a revival which will become more powerful as we get further closer to the return of the Lord Jesus. This is the end of time harvest work. Romans 9: 28 states: “FOR HE WILL FINISH THE WORK, AND CUT IT SHORT IN RIGHTEOUSNESS: BECAUSE A SHORT WORK WILL THE LORD MAKE UPON THE EARTH.” Jesus stated in John 14: 12: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do”. This powerful revival is based on knowing who Jesus truly is.
The Nearness of the coming of the Lord: This is the end-time. Many prophecies of the Bible have been fulfilled to let us know that the Lord is coming soon. We are now in the days when at any time “the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God”. (I Thessalonians 4: 16).
