Statement of faith


We believe fellowship consists of a gathering of people who have the same confession, that Jesus is the Christ the Son of the living God and we call this the church, also we have the same communication. The Communication: We subject ourselves in obedience and submission to the authority of God’s word (Matthew 16:13-20).
We believe that fellowship should not be forsaken (Hebrews 10:23-25) and as the church, we should participate in the pillars of the new testament church correspondingly.
  1. Continuing in the word of God
  2. Prayer
  3. Fellowship
  4. Communion
  5. Baptism
  6. Church leadership. Elders/Pastors/Deacons (Acts 2:40-42)


We believe in one personal, transcended, Divine God, The Creator of all who exist in three separate persons;
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.


We believe that Jesus Christ, though fully God, became a man for the suffering of death. We believe that He is the promised Messiah, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, provided for the atonement of our sins by His vicarious death on the Cross, bodily resurrected, ascended back to the right hand of God the Father and ever lives to make intercession for us. After Jesus ascended to Heaven, He poured out His Holy Spirit on the believers in Jerusalem, enabling them to fulfill His command to preach the Gospel to the entire world, an obligation shared by all believers today.
John 1:1-14, Hebrews 1:8, Titus 2:13 & John 20:28.


We believe in the person and work of the Holy Spirit who indwells, seals, and empowers every believer, baptizing them into the Body of Christ. We further believe that the Holy Spirit will come upon any believer who asks in faith, him/her to preach the Gospel in power. We also believe all of the gifts of the Holy Spirit mentioned in the Scriptures are valid for today and that they are to be exercised within the scriptural guidelines set forth by the Spirit. We believe that love is more important than all the gifts and without this love all exercise of spiritual gifts is worthless.
2 Corinthians 3:17, John 14:261 Corinthians 6:19-20


We believe God The Father is the Almighty infinite God who is the Father of Jesus Christ. He sent Jesus Christ into the world to seek and save that which is lost.


We believe in a personal Devil called Satan and fallen angels who are destined to spend eternity in hell. We believe they now seek to deceive people and defeat the work of God. However, they can be resisted by believers, as they are in dwelt by the Holy Spirit, protected by God, and interceded by the Lord Jesus. We also believe that Christ death on the cross broke every curse and there are no curses for a born-again believer.
Ephesians 6: 10-112 & 2 Corinthians 10:4-5.


We believe in the inerrancy of Scripture: That the Bible, Old and New Testaments are the inspired, infallible Word of God, a complete and final written revelation of God. We reject doctrinal viewpoints or spiritual phenomena which are based solely on experience. We look to the Word of God for the basis of all our faith and practice.


We believe worship of God should be intelligent. Therefore, our services are designed with great emphasis upon the teaching of the Word of God that He might instruct us how He should be worshiped. We seek to teach the Word of God in such a way that its message can be applied to an individuals life, leading that person to greater maturity in Christ.
2 Peter 3:18, Hebrews 6:1, Jeremiah 12:2 & Luke 17:5.


We believe God’s plan for human sexuality is to be expressed only within the context of marriage, that God created man and woman as unique biological persons made to complete each other. God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. For this reason, we believe that marriage is exclusively the union of one genetic male and one genetic female. Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:5-6; Mark 10:6-9; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9.

We believe that we must dedicate ourselves to prayer, to the service of our Lord, to His authority over our lives, and to the ministry of evangelism. Matthew 9:35-38; 22:37-39, and 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Romans 10:9-15 and 12:20-21; Galatians 6:10; Colossians 2:6-10; 1 Peter 3:15.

We believe that human life is sacred from conception to its natural end; and that we must have concern for the physical and spiritual needs of our fellowman. Psalm 139:13; Isaiah 49:1; Jeremiah 1:5; Matthew 22:37-39; Romans 12:20-21; Galatians 6:10.


We believe that all people are by nature separated from God and responsible for their own sin, but that salvation, redemption and forgiveness are freely offered to all by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. When a person repents of sin and accepts Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord, trusting Him to save, that person is immediately born again and sealed by the Holy Spirit, all his/her sins are forgiven and that person becomes a child of God.
Galatians 5:19-21, James 1:14-15, Genesis 3:6 & Romans 3:9-12.


We believe that you must be born again before you can enter the Kingdom of Heaven and that only in Jesus Christ can someone be saved.We believe worship of God should be fruitful. Therefore, we look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have been truly worshiping Him.
John 14:6, Ephesians 2:8-9, Matthew 9:6-9 & Romans 10:9-10.
