What We Believe  

Assemblies of God statement - What do we believe?

  • We believe that the Bible (i.e., the Old and New Testaments excluding the Apocrypha) is the inspired Word of God, the infallible, all-sufficient rule for faith and practice.
  • We believe in the unity of the one true and living God who is the eternal, self-existent “I AM” who has also revealed Himself as one being co-existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the virgin birth, sinless life, miraculous ministry, substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, triumphant ascension and abiding intercession of the Lord Jesus Christ and in His personal, visible, bodily return in power and glory as the blessed hope of all believers. 
  • We believe in the fall of man, who was created pure and upright, but fell by voluntary transgression.
  • We believe in salvation through faith in Christ, who, according to the Scriptures, died for our sins, was buried and was raised from the dead on the third day; through His blood, we have Redemption. This experience is also known as the new birth, and is an instantaneous and complete operation of the Holy Spirit upon initial faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that all who have truly repented and believe in Christ as Lord and Saviour are commanded to be baptised by immersion in water. 
  • We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit as an enduement of the believer with power for service, the essential, biblical evidence of which is the speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.
  • We believe in the operation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the gifts of Christ in the Church today. 
  • We believe in holiness of life and conduct in obedience to the command of God.
  • We believe that deliverance from sickness by divine healing is provided for in the atonement.
  • We believe that all who have truly repented and believe in Christ as Lord and Saviour should regularly participate in the breaking of bread. 
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the everlasting conscious bliss of all who truly believe in our Lord Jesus Christ and the everlasting conscious punishment of all whose names are not written in the Book of Life.


Evangelical Alliance statement

WE BELIEVE IN...

  1. The one true God who lives eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  2. The love, grace and sovereignty of God in creating, sustaining, ruling, redeeming and judging the world.
  3. The divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, which are the written Word of God and fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.
  4. The dignity of all people, made male and female in God's image to love, be holy and care for creation, yet corrupted by sin, which incurs divine wrath and judgement.
  5. The incarnation of God’s eternal Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, who was born of the virgin Mary, making him truly divine and truly human, yet He lived without sin.
  6. The atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross: dying in our place, paying the price of sin and defeating evil, thereby reconciling us with God.
  7. The bodily resurrection of Christ, the first fruits of our resurrection, his ascension to the Father, and his reign and mediation as the only Saviour of the world.
  8. The justification of sinners solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ.
  9. The ministry of God the Holy Spirit, who leads us to repentance, unites us with Christ through new birth, empowers our discipleship and enables our witness.
  10. The Church, the body of Christ, both local and universal, the priesthood of all believers — given life by the Spirit and endowed with the Spirit's gifts to worship God and proclaim the gospel, promoting justice and love.
  11. The personal and visible return of Jesus Christ to fulfil the purposes of God, who will raise all people to judgement, bring eternal life to the redeemed and eternal condemnation to the lost, and establish a new heaven and new earth.
