We believe that the Scriptures teach a life of holiness, and we are to obey the command "Be ye holy for I am holy". Believers are sanctified (i.e. set apart) for God's purpose at conversion. Continuation in sanctification is the will of God for all believers and should be earnestly pursued by walking in obedience to God's Word.
1.14 BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Baptiser in the Holy Spirit, and that this baptism, as a distinct experience from the New Birth, is promised to every believer.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
1.15 DIVINE HEALING
We believe in the gifts of healing and that God still, in our day heals the sick.
1.16 SPIRITUAL GIFTS
We believe that God has never removed the gifts referred to in 1 Corinthians Chapters 12, 13 and 14, and that whenever the Holy Spirit moves upon the Church in power, these gifts are manifested. We believe it is contrary to the Apostolic Command for any to "forbid to speak in tongues".
1.17 PRIESTHOOD OF BELIEVERS
Each individual believer has full and equal access to God through our Lord Jesus Christ, as a believer-priest.
1.18 THE MINISTRY
The ascended Christ has given various ministries to the Church and each of these exists for the strengthening of, and is essential to, the welfare of the Church. They are set forth in Ephesians 4:11, 1 Corinthians 12:28 and elsewhere.
We believe in miracles, both as recorded in the Bible, and as being possible in the present day.
We believe that both the living and the dead will be judged, it being understood that the believers' condemnation was borne by our Lord Jesus Christ in His redemptive work.
We believe in the principle of heterosexual relationships between a natural man and a natural woman within the confines of lawful matrimony.
1.22 SANCTITY OF LIFE
We believe that life is a gift from God and must always be regarded as sacred. We believe that abortion is the taking of human life; therefore, society brings grave danger to itself by permitting abortion on demand, and thus treating God-given life so lightly. We call our members to oppose this social evil with great vigour. However, we reject the use of violence as a means of bringing about this needed change in society.
We believe in the recent creation of all things by God in six literal days - as described in the first chapters of Genesis - and endorsed by Jesus Himself.
