THE TRINITY OF GOD
We believe in the Trinity of God, Who is manifested in three Persons – God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
THE NATURE OF GOD
We believe that God is the only Creator of heaven and earth, the visible and invisible, and is the supreme authority over all creation.
Genesis 1:1, John 1:3
We believe that God is Light, which is expressed in His majesty and glory as God, dwelling in an unapproachable light. God does not only have light, but He is Light Himself.
1 John 1:5
We believe that love is the very heart of the Divine nature. God is not only loving, but He Himself is Love.
We believe that God is a holy God, which is expressed in His uniqueness as completely separate from all creation. His Holiness expresses his moral qualities: He is righteous, just, true, faithful, merciful, gracious and favourable.

We believe that the sacrifice of the Son of God – Jesus Christ, Who came in the flesh, is the only sacrifice all-sufficient for the redemption of all mankind from the power of sin and its eternal consequences.

We believe that the redemptive work of Jesus Christ includes preaching the gospel of the kingdom, forgiveness of sins, healing disease and deliverance from demonic powers.
Matthew 4:23; Mark 16:16-17
We believe in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ in the Lord’s Day, that it will be accompanied by the resurrection of the dead and the creation of a new heaven and a new earth.
Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 20:11-13; Revelation 21:1
We believe that God is a Spirit, intangible and incorporeal in His essence. He is a spiritual being, not physical. He is a Person with self-consciousness, self-management, will, mind and emotions.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is revealed in Scripture as the third Person of the eternal Godhead.
We believe that the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and is sent by Him to reveal and establish the work of Christ in the life of every believer.
John 15:26; John 14:26; John 16:13-14
We believe that blasphemy against the Holy Spirit leads to everlasting damnation.
We believe that the primary mission of the ministry of the Holy Spirit is the redemption of the world through the testimony of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
We believe that being born again can be achieved only through the Holy Spirit.
We believe that every believer can experience the baptism of the Holy Spirit, with the ability to speak in tongues.
Acts 2:4; 1 Corinthians 14:2
We believe that the Holy Spirit gives spiritual gifts to believers as He wills, in order to perfect the ministry of the Church.

We believe in the universal sinfulness and guilt of fallen man, making people the subject of God’s wrath and condemnation.
Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:1-3
We believe that repentance is a way of life that cleanses the believers from the power of sin.
Acts 3:19; 2 Peter 3:9; 2 Corinthians 7:9
We believe that the Holy Scriptures of the Bible from the Old and New Testament are inspired and are the only true and supreme authority of God on all matters of faith and salvation. The Bible is addressed to all men and women, and through it the Holy Spirit is speaking, enlightening and revealing to the Church the wisdom and will of God.
2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21; John 1:1
We believe that Jesus Christ came to Earth to preach the gospel of the kingdom of God and build His Church.

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, and that He is the One building it.

We believe in the fivefold gifts (apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers) given by Christ to the Church, in order to perfect the saints for the work of the ministry.
We believe that apostles and prophets are the foundation of the Church, as Christ Jesus Himself is the cornerstone.
We believe that the church is a community of people united by their faith and love in Jesus Christ – their Lord and Savior! They are interconnected as living stones in the common covenant purpose of the building up and expansion of God’s kingdom on Earth through dedicated lives.
1Peter 2:4-8; Acts 2:42-47
We believe in the priesthood of all believers who form the universal Church – the Body of Christ.

We believe that the local church is God’s design and plan for mankind, to expand God’s kingdom on Earth. In the local church the lives of believers are being built up towards spiritual perfection and ministry.
Matthew 16:17-18; Acts 14:23; Matthew 18:15-16
We believe that the local church should have a cell structure to be effective in providing care, education and spiritual development to the individual believer. The management of the local church should be presbytery one, based on the New Testament biblical standards of leadership, with the purpose of building up the church. By nature the local church should be apostolic, aiming to expand God’s kingdom on Earth.
1Corinthians 12:12; 1Timothy 5:17; 1Corinthians 9:2
We believe that the main Divine call, mandate and responsibility of the Church in all ages is the Great Commission of Jesus Christ in Matthew 28:18-20.
We believe that every believer is a minister of God according to the call, gifts and abilities that Christ has given them.

We believe that the ministers who preach the word of God, must demonstrate a life of holiness and love, otherwise their testimony loses its credibility and strength.

We believe that sanctification is a process and a matter of personal spiritual growth under the influence of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God, without which no man will see the Lord.
