Statement of Belief

The one true and living God who eternally exists in three persons in unity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The Divine inspiration and authority of the Holy Scripture.

The original perfection of creation; the inherent corruptness of humanity through the Fall; the necessity of repentance and regeneration by grace and through faith in Christ alone, and the eternal separation from God of the finally unrepentant.

The virgin Birth, sinless life atoning death, triumphant Resurrection, ascension and continuing intercession of our Lord Jesus Christ, His Second Coming, and eternal Kingdom reign.

The justification and sanctification of believers through the finished work of Christ, their security as they remain in Him, and their future resurrection in an incorruptible body.

The Sacrament of Baptism by immersion, and of the Lord's Supper.

The baptism of the Holy Spirit for believers with supernatural signs, empowering the Church for its mission in the world.

The gifts of the Holy Spirit for the building up of the Church and ministry to the world.Christ's leadership of the Church through the ascension ministries of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, for the unity, maturity and growth of the Church.

The privilege and responsibility of wise stewardship of all that God has given, including the practice of tithing to the local church.

Marriage is ordained by God in scripture for the exclusive union between one man and one woman, for their mutual help and comfort.

These are the non-negotiables. Key values that define who we are.


We are a Pentecostal Church Movement.
Signs, wonders and miracles are the norm.
2 Cor 12:12; John 14:12-14.


We see that multiplication of churches and movements is God's purpose. We see that Church planting is the best long-term evangelistic method under Heaven.
Matt 28:19-20; Eph 3:20-21; Acts 1:8.

Apostolic Leadership

The following are a few of the qualities of apostolic leaders: Pioneers. People who are able to break through. People of Faith. People in whom the supernatural takes place regularly. Team players. People who show humility and are teachable. People of integrity.
Eph 4:11-16

Reaching the lost

Lost people really matter to God.
Matt 28:19-20; Luke 4:18-19; Luke 15; Luke 19:10; Acts 1:8

Training, Development and Discipling

Passing on biblical truths and a lifestyle that does what Jesus wants us to do, is essential to multiplication of churches and movements.
Matt 28:19-20. Eph 4:11-16
