Beliefs & Practices

Our Beliefs

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the infallible, unfailing Word of God. It was inspired by the Holy Spirit and written through Spirit-empowered people as God’s revelation of Himself to man.

We believe that the Bible is the final and absolute authority for Christian belief and behaviour. Unique and unequalled in power and authority, the Bible is the supreme standard by which all human conduct and opinions must be tried.

2 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 4:12, 2 Peter 1:20–21


We believe in one true and living God who exists eternally in unity as three equal persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each member of the Godhead, while having distinct and complementary roles, have exactly the same nature, essence and being.

*We believe in one God the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, being of the same essence as the Father. Through Him, all things were made. For us and for our salvation, He came down from heaven; he became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary and was made human. He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, suffered and was buried.

On the third day, He rose again, according to the Scriptures, ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom shall have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life, who spoke through the prophets. He proceeds from the Father and the Son, and with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified.

*Adapted from Nicene Creed

Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19


We believe that God created humanity, male and female, in His own image as the crowning work of His creation. Humanity was created free from sin but sinned against God by their own choice, bringing sin and death into the world. All human beings are separated from God and under the power of sin and death, and are in desperate need of salvation through Jesus Christ.

Genesis 1:27, Romans 5:12–15


We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, was buried, and rose again securing salvation for all who repent and trust in Him.

We believe that salvation is in Christ alone, by grace alone, through faith in Him alone. The moment one puts their faith in Jesus, they receive the gift of eternal life, are declared righteous before God, and are adopted into the family of God.

John 14:6, Romans 5:1–2, 1 Corinthians 15:3–4, Ephesians 1:5–6

Baptism and Communion

We believe that Christian baptism is the public declaration of a believer’s repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. This act of obedience identifies the believer with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection through immersion in water.

We believe that communion as commanded by Jesus symbolizes the new covenant inaugurated in His blood. Communion is the coming together of believers to commemorate the Lord’s death until He returns.

Matthew 28:19, Romans 6:3–5, Matthew 26:26–29, 1 Corinthians 11:23–27

The Church

We believe that each person who has accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour is made part of the universal church, the body of Christ, whose head is Jesus Christ Himself. Each local church is an expression of the universal church.

We believe that belonging to a local church is essential for all believers; for worship, teaching, prayer, fellowship, and discipleship.

We believe that the local church is the primary vehicle for the fulfilling of Jesus’ command to make disciples of all nations.

Matthew 16:18, Matthew 28:18–20, Ephesians 1:22–23, 1 Timothy 3:15, Hebrews 10:25


We believe that God, in His own time, will bring the present age to an end.

We believe in the glorious, visible and personal return of Jesus Christ to the earth.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, and that Christ will judge as the righteous Judge.

We believe that all who have rejected salvation in Christ will spend eternity in everlasting punishment in hell.

We believe that all who have received salvation in Christ will spend eternity with God in the new heavens and new earth.

Matthew 28:20, 1 Corinthians 15:20–23, 1 Thessalonians 4:14–18, Revelation 21:1–8

Our Practices

Our movement is founded on seven pillars:

Prayer & Fasting

The pillar of a Spirit-empowered life.

A lifestyle of prayer and fasting allows us to stay connected to the voice of the Holy Spirit, and filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. As a church, we regularly engage in times of extended prayer, with fasting.

"And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness for forty days, being tempted by the devil. And he ate nothing during those days. And when they were ended, he was hungry… And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and a report about him went out through all the surrounding country. And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all."

Luke 4:1-2, 14-15 ESV

The Word

The pillar of a faith-filled life.

The discipline of daily engaging God’s Word injects faith into us, causing us to continue believing the promises of God. As a church, we discipline ourselves to read God’s Word through Bible reading plans.

"So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."

Romans 10:17 MEV

Praise & Worship

The pillar of a presence-filled life.

Praise and worship is an action that reflects the choice to recognize God for Who He is and to respond appropriately! And when we recognize God for Who He is, and respond appropriately, His presence fills our lives and our church.

"Yet I know that you are most holy; it’s indisputable. You are God-Enthroned, surrounded with songs, living among the shouts of praise of your princely people."

Psalm 22:3 TPT


the pillar of a missional life.

Bringing people to faith in Jesus through the preaching of the gospel is at the core of our mission as a church, and of the purpose of each of our lives. We share the good news of Jesus through weekend services and small groups.

"Now wherever you go, make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. And teach them to faithfully follow all that I have commanded you. And never forget that I am with you every day, even to the completion of this age."

Matthew 28:19-20 TPT


The pillar of a blessed life.

We don’t tithe to the church, we tithe to God through the church. We believe that tithing is not a matter of covering the costs of the church, tithing is a matter of being in partnership with God.

"Bring all the tithes (the whole tenth of your income) into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and prove Me now by it, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

And I will rebuke the devourer [insects and plagues] for your sakes and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground, neither shall your vine drop its fruit before the time in the field, says the Lord of hosts.

And all nations shall call you happy and blessed, for you shall be a land of delight, says the Lord of hosts."

Malachi 3:10-12 AMPC


The pillar of a purposeful life.

We believe that our purpose in life can be summed up by the command to use our gifts to serve others. We encourage each member to serve on a team, while as a church we find opportunities to serve the community.

"As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God."

1 Peter 4:10 NASB


The pillar of a transformed life.

We believe that we are called to a life of discipline, in order to experience the will of God, and become more like Jesus. Discipleship means consistently obeying Jesus, which includes belonging to a local church and practicing the seven pillars.

"Why are you so polite with me, always saying ‘Yes, sir,’ and ‘That’s right, sir,’ but never doing a thing I tell you? These words I speak to you are not mere additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundation words, words to build a life on."

Luke‬ ‭6:46-49‬ ‭MSG‬‬
