He is present and at work in the world to make men and women aware of their need for Jesus Christ. From the moment of salvation of an individual he also lives inside the life of the person. The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He gives Christians the ability and the power to live a life that reflects Jesus’, to understand spiritual truth, and to overcome any difficulties. He equips every believer with spiritual gifts as He determines for the benefit of other believers and as a witness to non-believers. Our desire as Christians is to live under His control daily.

ABOUT THE BIBLE
The Bible is God's Word to all people, written by man but inspired by God, infallible, and all sufficient rule for faith and practice. As it is God’s word we believe and accept It as the unique and supreme source of truth, in which Christian believes and lives must be based on.

ABOUT HUMAN BEINGS
We believe that men and women were created in the image of God, pure and upright with the purpose of having fellowship with Him but fell by voluntary transgression. People are the supreme object of God's creation, but because of disobedience they became separated from Him. As a result, men and women are totally incapable of coming back into a right relationship with God by their own effort, and it is only through faith in Christ that they can experience forgiveness and see this relationship being restored.

We believe that salvation is a gift of God to mankind. Men and women can never make up for sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness, through his substitutionary sacrifice, can people be saved from sin's penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into their life by faith. This is known as the New Birth, and is an instantaneous and complete operation of the Holy Spirit upon initial faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

ABOUT THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit to be a distinct experience to salvation that can occurs at any time after someone is saved. The purpose of this baptism is the empowerment of the believer for service. The essential biblical evidence of it, is the speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.

ABOUT THE CHURCH
We believe the Church is the Body of Christ, the family of God made up of every Christian on earth. It is expressed through local congregations of Christians. It is a community where the Holy Spirit empowers Christians to use their gifts in order to build each other up and to reach non-Christians with God's salvation message. The Church is led by the Holy Spirit through the leaders He has established.
