Our Beliefs

What we believe about the church

The church is a sacred institution established by God :

Although the church is not a physical building, believers are referred to as the building or temple of God. Like a physical building, believers also have a Cornerstone; Jesus Christ.

(Matt 16:16, Deut 4:10, 1 Cor 3:9-17 , 1 Cor 6:19 , 2 Cor 6:6 & Eph 2:19-22)

Laid upon the sure foundation, and built on the Rock Jesus Christ, Son of God, Messiah, Saviour, High Priest, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the Alpha and the Omega, soon to return to the earth on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

(Rev 19:16, 2 Tim 4:1-2, Matt 24:30)
