OUR BELIEFS
_________

 

We believe in an Evangelical Pentecostal approach to Scripture and Christian Living. In essence, this means that we are passionate about agreeing with God the Father, trusting in the work of Jesus Christ and cooperating with the work of the Holy Spirit in bringing God’s purpose to Christchurch and beyond.


STATEMENT OF FAITH

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of God.

  • We believe there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

  • We believe in the deity of Christ; His virgin birth; His sinless life; His miracles; His vicarious and atoning death; His resurrection; His ascension to the right hand of the Father; His personal return to earth in power and glory.

  • We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of the human nature, and that all are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ, and that only by God’s grace through faith alone are we saved.

  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are not unto the resurrection of damnation.

  • We believe in the spiritual unity of the believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

  • We believe that we as Christians are examples of the love of God in this world.

  • We believe it is the mandate of the whole Church to go and make disciples of all nations.
