"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."  John 8:32


           

THE DOCTRINE OF THE MINISTRY (2 Timothy 3:16)

All scriptures are given by inspiration of God and are profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction and for instruction in righteousness.

DEFINITION:
Doctrine: is a belief or set of beliefs held and taught by a Church or any group of persons.

1. THE GENERAL OVERSEER:
The General Overseer is the visionary,Senior Pastor and spiritual head of the ministry. And the father of all. Heb. 5:4, Psalm 89:20. He is the presiding Bishop.

2. THE GENERAL OVERSEER'S WIFE:
She is respected and regarded as the mother of the church and the Co-Senior Pastor of the Ministry

3. ORDINATION:
We believe in the ordination of leaders in the Church. For example: Pastors, Elders, Deacons, and Deaconesses etc. 1 Tim. 2:7, Mk. 3:14.

4. PUNCTUALITY:
We believe in being punctual and regular to church programmes. For example Sunday service, bible study etc. Heb. 10:25.

5. MEMBERSHIP PARTICIPATION:
We believe that every serious member must belong to any of the activity groups in the church. For example: the Choir, Usher, and Prayer band ( SWAT) etc. Rom. 12:4-8, 1 Cor. 12:7-12.

6. HOME CELL FELLOWSHIP:
We believe in the operation of the local church through the home cell fellowship. Therefore, every member must belong to the home cell fellowship for proper identification. Acts 2:46.

7. FINANCES:
, Vows, Sacrificial offering and prophetic offering. Luke 6:38, Malachi 3:8-11, Psalm 50:5, 1 Kings 17:10-16.

8. DAYS OF WORSHIP:We believe in the financial commitment of every member of the local church. For example Tithing
We believe that one can worship God every day of the week. The Ministry has thus set aside three days of the week for service i.e. Sunday service, Tuesday Bible study & Friday Jesus Clinic. Every true member is expected to attend these services.

9. DELIVERANCE:
We believe in the total freedom of man; body, soul and spirit and hence every member of this ministry must go through the faith clinic which is the deliverance arm of the ministry. Obadiah vs 17; Isaiah 49:24-25.

10. WELFARE OF PASTORS:
We believe in the welfare of pastors, hence every member is expected to take care of the pastors. 1 Cor. 9:9-14, Jn. 12:1-8.

11. WELFARE OF MEMBERS:
We believe that every member should be taken care of when in need. For example sickness, bereavement, delivery etc. Acts 6:1-6.

12. TRAINING:
We believe in the training and re-training of our Pastors/ members for maximum productivity in all segments of the ministry. 2 Tim. 2:15.

13. HOLY LIVING:
We believe in Holy
and righteous living of believers. Hence we expect members of this church to practice holiness in their daily living. Rom. 12:1, Lev. 20:7, Eph. 1:4.

We believe in giving thanks to God, this we do monthly, mid-year and annually. Lk. 17:17, Psalm 105:1-5.

16. WATER BAPTISM:
We believe in water baptism by immersion, of every adult who has accepted Christ as his/her personal Lord and Saviour. Hence infants are not baptised in this ministry. Matt. 28:19-20.

We believe in the five-fold ministry as recorded in Ephesians 4;11, that is the ministry of the Apostles, Prophets, Evangelist, Pastors and Teachers.

 

18. DRESSING:

DOCTRINE/TENANT OF FAITH

 

The Bible
We believe-- the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God without error in the original writings. We believe that the copies that we have todate of both the OT and the NT (for example, KJV, AMP, ect...) have been sufficiently kept by the power of God to reflect the original documents and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of man, and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life. (2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21)

Holy Trinity
We believe in one God creator of all things and revealed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost...making up the blessed Holy Trinity. The Scriptures clearly teach that there is one God who is an infinite being and who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Each person is wholly God, equal in power and glory, and possesses precisely the same attributes and perfection. Though undivided in nature and being, they each have different roles, eternally functioning with perfect harmony. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:18-20, John 1:1-14, John 14:5-14, 28; John 15:26-27; Matthew 3:16,17; 1 John 5:6,7; Phil. 2:6; ).
Jesus Christ
We believe--Jesus Christ the Son of God is, Fully Man and as the second person of the Trinity Fully God, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary the eternal Son became a man. He died on the cross, the complete, sinless, and final sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate the only mediator between God the Father and man. (Phil. 2:6; John. 1:1, 14, 18, 14:1-5, 28, 10:22-39, 15:26; Jn. 3:16, Romans 1:1-4; Matt. 28:18-20; Gal. 4:1-7; Heb. 4:14-16; Lk. 1:26-38, Matt. 1:18-24; I Tim. 2:5-6 )
The Holy Spirit
We believe--That the Holy Spirit, as the third PERSON of the Trinity, is fully God and equal in power and majesty to God the Father and God the Son. The ministry of the Holy Spirit on earth is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and during this age, to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. To regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service. (Phil. 2:6; John. 1:1, 14, 18, 14:28, 15:26)
Baptism in the Holy Ghost?
We believe--The Baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this dispensation and received (after) subsequent to the New Birth. This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance and the believer by faith does the speaking. (Matt. 3:11; John 14:16-17; Acts 2:4, 38-39, 19:1-7)
Man
We believe--Man was created in the image of God, but fell into sin and is therefore lost, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained. (Rom. 3:10, 23; 1 John 3:8)
Hell
We bleive that Hell is a real place of eternal torment for the unregenerate that has died in their sins. Only those that have repented of their sins and have received Jesus as Lord and Savior will escape the penalty of sin.
Matt 25:41, Matthew 13:42, Mark 9:43-48, Luke 16:24, Revelation 20:13-15
Revelation 21:8, Matthew 12:40, Acts 2:29-31, Romans 10:6-7, Ephesians 4:7-9
Salvation
We believe--The shed blood of Jesus Christ, at the cross of Calvery and His resurrection, provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who would believe, and only such as repent of their sins, receive Jesus Christ by faith and confess him as Lord, are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God. (John. 1:12, 2 Cor. 7:10; 1 John 5:12; John 3:8; Acts 4:12, Romans 10:9-10)
Sanctification
We believe--The Bible teaches that without holiness no man shall see the Lord. We believe in the doctrine of Sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consummation of salvation at Christ's return. (Heb. 12:14; 1 Thess. 5:23; 2 Peter 3:18; 2 Cor. 3:18; Phil. 3:12-14)
Physical Healing
We believe--healing for the physical body is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith, and by the laying on of hands. It is provided for in the atonement of Christ, and is the privilege of every member of the church today. (Mk. 16:18; James 5:14-15; 1 Peter 2:24; Matt. 8:17; Is. 53:4-5)
Return of Christ and the Rapture of the Church
The Return of Jesus Christ-- We believe in the personal, premillenial, and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is our hope and it should have a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer. (Acts 1:11; 1 Thes. 4:16-17)
Resurrection
Future Events--We believe--There will be a bodily resurrection of all the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, and of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting, conscious punishment. (Acts 1:11; 1 Thess. 4:16-17; Rev. 19:20)
The Church
We believe--The true Church is composed of all such persons, who through repentance of sins and saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the head.
Baptism by water
We believe--Water baptism should be by immersion, when possible, soon after accepting Christ as personal Savior. It is an opportunity for a public pronouncement by a believer, as a testimony of one's identifying with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Water baptism is for those that are of reasonable age to give such testimony. The person being water baptized is also testifying that he is now dead to sin and alive unto God awaiting the return of Christ. (Matt. 28:19; Rom. 6:4; Col. 2:12; 2 Cor. 5:17)
Communion
We believe--the Lord's Supper is a memorial service setting forth in sacred and symbolic manner the death of the Lord Jesus Christ; all true believers and only believers should share in it. 1Cor. 10:16, Acts 2:42, Matt. 26:27, Mk. 14:23, Lk. 22:20, 1 Cor.10:21,

 

 

Unity  of God's People: God has only one church (I Cor 12:12-13,20; Eph 4:4-6) and Christ desires that there be unity and fellowship amongst His children (John 17:20-23, Gal 3:28, Phil 1:27). For unity to be attained, there must be a coming out of Babylon (Rev 18:2,4).

Salvation from Sin: While all have sinned, Jesus Christ died on the cross that the power of sin might be broken in the hearts and lives of mankind. There is power through redemption to enable us to live free from sin on a daily basis. "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new." II Cor. 5:17. To live acceptably before God and to make Heaven our home, we must live without sin. There is a definite experience of salvation that all can have when they believe in Christ, repent of committed sin, and walk in newness of life. (Matt 1:21; Rom 6; I John 3:3-10; I John 5:18a; John 5:14b; John 8:11b).

Infilling of the Holy Ghost: As it was on the day of Pentecost, there is a second work subsequent to justification (Acts 19:2) that every child of God must experience. The Holy Spirit wants to come into every justified individual and take up His abode. The Holy Ghost brings power to the lives of Christians to enable them to be the separate, called-out, holy people that God desires. The Holy Spirit is a sanctifier, comforter, purifier, and enabler. (Acts 2; Acts 15:8-9; Acts 1:8; I Cor 6:19-20; John 14:16-20, 25-28).

Kingdom of God: The kingdom of God is not an earthly kingdom but a spiritual kingdom that has been in existence ever since the coming of Jesus Christ. We look not for another kingdom on this earth but are experiencing the joy, blessings, and power in this life as kings and priests in the kingdom of God (Luke 17:20-21; Romans 14:17; John 18:36).

End Times: At a time we know not, Christ will return to this earth as a thief in the night (Acts 1:9-11,    II Peter 3:10-12). All people, the living and the dead, will stand before the judgment seat of God (II Tim 4:1,8; John 5:28-29; I Thess 4:16-17; II Cor 5:10).  The righteous shall live in Heaven while the unrighteous shall live in Hell for eternity (Matt 25:31-46).  The earth will be destroyed (2 Peter 3:7; Rev 20:11-15).

Faith: The life and experience of a Christian should be based on faith and trust in God with regard to every aspect of living. Spiritual, financial, physical, and temporal dependency is to be on God and not man (Heb 11:6; Romans 5:1; John 20:31).  This is one of the reasons that ministers are not salaried, but rely on free-will offerings as the Lord provides (I Peter 5:2-3; John 10:11,13).

Divine Physical Healing: Provision was made for divine physical healing when Christ shed his blood on the cross. Divine healing  is not something of the past but it is still available for those who put their faith and trust in God. God still works miracles in the body as well as the soul. (James 5:13-16; Isaiah 53:4-5).

3 Ordinances: Full Immersion Baptism (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 8:36-39); The Lord's Supper (Matthew 26:26-30; I Cor. 11:23-27); Feet Washing (John 13:14-17).

Holiness: The Word of God teaches that we must be holy in all manner of conversation -- our attitudes, meditations, motivations, actions, where we go, what we do, what we wear. Holiness must encompass our lives inwardly and outwardly.  Without holiness, no man shall see God. This holiness does not come from man's work but it is the work of God within man. Therefore, there is no place for 'self-righteousness'. Part of holiness is living humbly before God and man. (Hebrews 12:14; I Peter 1:15; I Thess 4:7; Eph. 4:24; Rom. 6:22; Titus 2:11-12).

Modesty of Dress: A child of God must not be conformed to this world but rather be a reflection of humility, purity, and simplicity (I Timothy 2:9-10; I Corinthians 11:14-15; Deuteronomy 22:5).

Sanctity of Marriage: The scripture teaches that a man and woman, when married, are joined for life in the eyes of God. Remarriage while a first companion is still living constitutes adultery (Luke 16:18;    I Cor 7:10-11,39).

Worship: True worshipers will worship God in Spirit and in Truth (John 4:23-24). Worship services of God's people are not programmed but are led and ordered by the Spirit of the Lord. As was the practice of the early morning church and as the reformers also taught, musical instruments are not used in active worship service. Ministers are not formally trained but are called by God to preach the gospel under the anointing of the Holy Spirit (Eph 3:7; I Cor 2:1-5).

Great Commission: The burden of Christ remains with His true children to 'go into all the world and preach the gospel.' (Mark 16:15) The purpose of the Church is not to settle down and enjoy the wealth of this world but to be the light of the world, to spread the good news of true salvation, and to show lost souls the love of God by good works.

Two Natures

We believe that all who are born again possess two natures, with provision made for victory over the old nature through the death of Christ and by the power of the indwelling Spirit and the Word of God. We believe that all claims to the eradication of the old nature in this life are unscriptural (Romans 6:13; 7:14-8:4; Galatians 5:16-25; Ephesians 4:22-24; Colossians 3:1-10; I Peter 1:14-16; I John 3:5-9).
 
 
 
 

 Missions

We believe that it is the obligation of every born-again believer to bear witness by life and word to the truths revealed in the Word of God and to proclaim the Gospel to all the world (Acts 1:8; II Corinthians 5:19,20; Matthew 28:18- 20).
