Our vision is to build a Cross-Cultural, Bible-based, Spirit-Filled contemporary church according to the Pentecostal pattern.
We believe in the divine inspiration and authority of the Holy Bible. We believe that the Bible is infallible in its declaration, final in its authority, all sufficient in its provisions and comprehensive in its sufficiency.
2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21
One True God
We believe in the existence of the One True God , Elohim, Maker of the whole universe; indefinable, but revealed as Truine God-Father, Son and the Holy Spirit-One in nature, essence, and attributes; Omniscient, Omnipotent and Omnipresent.
Genesis 1:1; Matthew 2:16 – 17; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14
Man’s Depraved Nature
We believe that “all men have sinned and come short of the glory of God” and are subject to eternal punishment, and need repentance and regeneration.
Genesis 3:1 – 19; Isaiah 53:6
We believe that man needs a Savior. This has been met in the person of Jesus Christ for the following reasons. His deity, virgin birth, sinless life, atoning death, resurrection, and ascension; also His abiding intercession and second coming to judge the living and the dead.
Matthew 1:21; John 4:42; Ephesians 5:23; Philippians 2:6 – 11
Repentance, Regeneration, Justification, and Sanctification
We believe all men have to repent of, their sins before God, and believe in the vicarious death of Jesus Christ to be justified before God. We believe in the sanctification of the believer through the working of the Holy Spirit and in God’s gift of Eternal Life to the believer.
Luke 15:7; Acts 2:38; Romans 4:25:5, 16; I Corinthians 1:30; I Thessalonians 4:3
The Ordinances (Sacraments) of the Church
We believe in the following two ordinances for the Church; baptism by immersion, and Holy Communion-The Lord’s Supper. These are commanded by Jesus Christ for His Church.
Matthew 28: 19 – 20; Mark 16:16; Luke 22:1 – 20
Baptism, Gifts and Fruits of the Holy Spirit
We believe that baptism in the Holy Spirit with speaking in tongues as initial evidence for believers. Likewise, we believe in the operation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the bearing of fruits in the lives of believers.
Mark 16:17; Acts 2:4; I Corinthians 12:8 – 11; Galatians 5:22 – 23
We believe that God’s will to heal is revealed in Scriptures. However, we do not oppose the application of medicine or medical technology by qualified medical practitioners for healing purposes.
2 Kings 20:7; Matthew 9:12; Luke 10:34; Colossians 4:14
Tithes & Offering
We believe in tithing and in giving of freewill offerings towards the cause of carrying forward the Kingdom of God. We believe that God blesses a cheerful giver.

The Second Coming and The Next Life
We believe in the Second Coming of Christ and the Resurrection of the dead, both saved and unsaved; they that are saved, to the resurrection of life, and they that are unsaved, to the resurrection of damnation.
Mark 13:26; Daniel 12:2; John 5:28 – 29; Acts 1:11, 10:42; Romans 2:7 – 11;6:23
Marriage and Family Life
The Church believes in the Divine origination, institution and ordination of marriage as the holy union between a man and a woman for the mutual help, fellowship and comfort that the one ought to have for the other and also for the procreation of children and their training in love. With regards to the chastity of marriage, the church admonishes all to honor marriage which must be entered into in all solemnity and the fear of God. Divorce is not encouraged and the church does not condone polygamy or any deviant sexual behavior.
Matthew 5:31 – 32; 19:3 – 11; Romans 7:1 – 3; 1 Corinthians 7:10 – 15
