Words We Hold Dear...
We believe that God does only good, and evil never comes from Him. We affirm Satan is behind all evils, and we must resist him by every means necessary.
We believe with all persuasion that God wants our material prosperity! He wants us to prosper materially, have material things in abundance, have good health without fail, be fruitful in all we do and have all the resources necessary to fulfil our purpose on earth. We believe it is God's will to have glorious marriages on earth, have profitable businesses, have godly children, have peaceful nations and everything that reflects God's goodness to man. We believe in radical demonstration of God's Spirit. We flow in all the gifts of the Spirit and contend for them, speak in unknown tongues, and identify as Charismatic and pentecostal in spiritual expressions. We believe in casting out demons, enforcing God's power via prayer and fasting, we believe we have victory in spiritual warfare, we believe all evil spiritual forces are not enough to stop us as we put on the whole armour of God! We believe we always triumph through Christ Jesus at all times! Glory!! Acts 10:38 3 John 2 Ephesians 6:10 - 20 Mark 16:16 - 18. 1 John 5:4
We believe Jesus is the full and correct representation of God's character and person. We believe God is fully understood and revealed in Christ.
Hebrews 1:1 - 4.
We believe God became a man (Jesus), died for our sins, rose for our justification, and today sits at God's right hand, giving eternal life to everyone who believes His gospel.
John 1:1 - 4 & 14 ; Romans 10:6 - 10 ; Timothy 3:16
We believe God doesn't send anyone to hell, rather, men receive or reject the gospel to determine their eternity.
We believe salvation in Christ is received by men, it is not forced on anyone. No one is saved against his or her will. We affirm that anyone who rejects the gospel is damned, and without repentance, such a fellow will partake in eternal torments. We affirm everyone who believes in Jesus has eternal life and will never perish! We believe everyone in Christ is predestined unto good works. Thus no one who is born of God comfortably lives in sins and encourages others to do the same. We believe the fruit of true salvation is zeal for good works with all boldness that we are eternally forgiven and we have eternal fellowship with the Father. John 3:16 & 36; Romans 8:1 - 4 Hebrews 10:9 - 14; John 10:28
We believe in the local church's authority, the sacredness and orderliness of the local church, and the apostolic power of the local church.
We believe Jesus has ordained Leaders in His local church for administration. We believe these leaders must be obeyed and honoured for the effectiveness of the local church, the growth of individual members and the increase of His global church. Ephesians 4:11 - 16; Hebrews 13:7, 17 & 24 1 Thessalonians 5:12 - 13; 1 Corinthians 4:15 - 17
We believe the fundamental purpose of every believer is to preach the gospel, serve in a local church and do the work of ministry.
We believe every believer has been graced for this purpose. We believe in eternal rewards from ministry. We believe the saints must explore every means to be a blessing to the local church in all holy conducts. We believe our professions, careers, skills, earthly pursuits e.t.c. are only platforms to preach Jesus and further His mission on earth. Romans 12:4 - 13; 2 Corinthians 5:9- 10; 1 Timothy 3:15; 1 Corinthians 12:12 - 31
We believe in charity and all manner of good works!
We believe it is our responsibility first to supply material needs to members of our local churches and everyone outside the local church by extension. We believe God uses our abundance to meet every need, so none of us should lack. We are aggressive about meeting needs because it is our proof of love, faith and bond of unity. Galatians 6:10; James 1:27; 2 Corinthians 8:14
We believe in financial partnership with the gospel and our leaders. We are eager to give, we purpose in our hearts to give, we are willing to give.
We believe our money is the primary means of funding the gospel via our local church. It is the primary way of remuneration for our Apostle and his pastors. We believe our finances are weapons of pushing the gospel and the mission of our local church to the ends of the earth. We are aggressive about giving our offerings, monthly partnerships, Pastors' partnerships, sowing seeds and meeting all needs in our local church. 2 Corinthians 9:6 - 15. 1 Corinthians 9:7 - 14. Philippians 4:15 - 19.
We believe God rewards all our good works, both on earth and in heaven. We believe there are physical rewards for partnering with the gospel as much as eternal rewards.
We believe God is a rewarder of all good works done in His name and to His servants. We believe our good works endear us to the Father and position us for His rewards. Mark 9:41; Mark 10:29 - 30; Philippians 4:19
We believe in the coming resurrection of the church.
We believe we have been sealed with the Spirit till that day.
We believe no true believer in Christ will miss the resurrection.
We believe the resurrection is our sacred hope in Christ.
We believe we shall be fashioned into His glorious body once and for all, and death shall be no more!
We believe this with all our hearts!
1 Corinthians 15:19 - 58; Ephesians 4.30; 2 Corinthians 5:1 - 5; Thessalonians 4:14 - 18; Colossians 3:4 I bless you with the love of our Father and His grace. Abound in His goodness.
