Our Core Value

KINGDOM BIBLE PEOPLE LOVE PRAYER FAITH

 

Preamble; The Holy Scriptures, known as the Bible are the inspired Word of God and our all-sufficient rule for faith and practice.

These ARTICLES OF FAITH FOR SPIRIT LIFE CHRISTIAN CHURCH LTD, grounded in these scriptures, are given as a basis for belief, fellowship and ministry “that we all preach the same thing” (1 Cor 1:10). Let it be remembered, however, that this is not given as a summary of the complete revelation of biblical truth, only that it covers our present needs as to the fundamental doctrines.

 

1. The Eternal Godhead; WE BELIEVE in the unity of the truth and living God who is the eternal, self existent one, who has revealed Himself as one being in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and who is the creator and preserver of things visible and invisible – Duet 6:4, Mark 12:29, Matt 28:19, Gen 1:1, Ps 86:9-10, Is 43:10-11, John 1:1-3

 

2. The Lord Jesus Christ; WE BELIEVE in the Lord Jesus Christ, the second person of the triune Godhead, who was and is the eternal Son of God, that He became incarnated by the Holy Spirit and was born of the virgin Mary

 

WE BELIEVE In His sinless life, miraculous ministry, substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, glorious ascension and abiding intercession – Is 7:14, Matt 1:23, Heb 7:26, 1 Peter 2:22, Acts 10:38, 2 Cor 5:21, Heb 9:12, Luke 24:39, 1 Cor 15:4, Acts 1:9, Eph 4:8-10, Rom 8:34, Heb 7:25

 

3.  The Holy Spirit; WE BELIEVE In the Holy Spirit, the third person of the triune Godhead who proceeds from the Father and the Son, and is ever present and active in the work of convicting and regenerating the sinner, and sanctifying and guiding the believer in to all truth – John 16:8-11, 1 Pet 1:2, Rom 8:14 

 

4.  The Holy Scriptures; WE BELIEVE In the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, namely the Old and New Testaments in their original writings. All Scriptures is given by inspiration of God, and is infallible, inherently revealing the will of god, concerning us all in all things necessary to our conduct. The Bible does not simply contain the Word of God, but is, in reality, the compete revelation and very Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, so that whatever is not contained therein is not to be enjoined as an article of Faith – Matt 5:17-18 & 24:36, John 4:39, 2 Tim 3:16, Rom 8:14

 

5.  WE BELIEVE; In the personality of the devil, who by his influence, brought about the downfall of man, and now seeks to destroy the faith of every believer in the Lord Jesus Christ – Gen 3:1-15, Matt 4:1-13, James 4:7, 1 pet 5:8, John 13:2

 

6.  The fall of Man; WE BELEIVE that man was created by God by specific immediate act and in His image and likeness, morally upright and perfect, but fell by voluntary transgression. Consequently, all men are separated from original righteousness, being depraved and without spiritual life – Gen 1:26-31, Gen 3:1-7, Rom 5:12-21

 

7.   The Atonement; WE BELIEVE that God’s answer to man’s sinful state is the death of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ upon the Cross, whose suffering and shed blood have made atonement for the sins of the whole world, both original and actual, and that there is no other ground for salvation – 2 Cor 5:18-21, Gal 1:4, Eph 1:7, Col 1:14, Heb 9:25-26, 1 Pet 1:19-20

 

8.   Salvation of Man; WE BELIEVE Salvation is received through repentance towards God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. This experience is also known as the new birth and is an instantaneous and complete operation of the Holy Spirit whereupon the believing sinner is regenerated, justified, and adopted into the family of God and became a new creation of Christ Jesus.

 

9.   The Church; WE BELIEVE the church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her Great Commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the General Assembly and Church of the First Born are written in Heaven – Eph 1:22-23, Heb 12:23

 

10. Water Baptism; WE BELIEVE that baptism by single immersion, in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, is enjoined upon all who have repented and have believed in Christ as Savior and Lord, and that it is symbolic of our identification with Christ in His death, and resurrection Matt 28:19-20, Acts 10:47-48 & 2:38-39, Rom 6:4-5, Col 2:12, Mark 16:16

 

11. The Lord’s Supper; WE BELIEVE the Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements of bread and fruit of the vine, is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Pet 1:4), a memorial of His suffering and death (1 Cor 11:26), and a prophecy of His second coming (1 Cor 11:26), and is enjoyed upon all believers “until He comes” – Luke 22:15-29, Matt 26:26-28, Acts 20:7

 

12. Sanctification; Sanctification is an act of separation from which is evil and of dedication unto God. WE BELIEVE it is the glorious provision for every believer in Christ to be made pure in heart and wholly sanctified, through the operation of the Holy Spirit, by the blood of Jesus and the Word of God – John 17:15, Acts 15:8-9, 1 Thess 4:3-4, Heb 2:11 & 10:16-19, Thess 5:23, Rom 12:1-2

 

13. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit; WE BELIEVE that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is the bestowing of the believer with power and effective witness for Christ. This experience is distinct from, and subsequent to, the New Birth, is received by faith, and is accompanied by the manifestation of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives utterance – Luke 24-29, Acts 1:4-5 & 8 & 2:1-4 & 8:15-19 & 19:1-7

 

14. Gifts; WE BELIEVE in the present day operation of the nine (9) supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit, as recorded in 1 Cor 12. We also believe in the ministry gifts of Christ, as recorded in EPH 4:11-13

 

15. Devine Healing; in accordance with the teaching of the Scriptures, we trust our heavenly Father to protect and heal our bodies from sickness and disease.WE BELIEVE in divine healing for the body, as with all redemptive blessings of God, has been provided for us by the atoning death and victorious resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, it is the privilege of all believers and it is appropriated by faith in our heavenly Father’s unfailing promises – Ex 15:26, Isa 53:4, Matt 8:16-17, 1 Pet 2:24, Ps 103:3, James 5:14-15, Mark 16:17-18

 

16. The Second Coming; WEBELIEVE in the personal return of our Lord Jesus Christ to gather His people unto Himself. Having this glorious hope and earnest expectation we purify ourselves, and even as He is pure, so that we may be ready to meet Him when He comes – John 14:1-3, James 5:7-8, Titus 2:13, 1 Thes 4:15-17, 2 Thes 2:1, 1 John 2:28 & 2:2-3

 

17. The Punishment of the Wicked; WE BELIEVE in the everlasting punishment of the wicked (in the sense of eternal torment) who willfully reject and despise the love of God manifested in the great sacrifice of His only Son upon the cross of their salvation – Matt 25:46 & 13:49-50, Luke 1:47-48, 2 Thess 1:8-9, Rom 6:23, Rev 20:11-15. We believe that the devil and his angels and whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life shall be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death – Rev 19:20

 

18. The New Heavens and the New Earth; WE BELIEVE we according to His promises, look for “new heavens and new earth wherein dwells righteousness” – 2 Pet 3:13, Rev 21:1-27
