What We Believe

Concerning the Bible

We believe that the original writings of both Old and New Testaments were breathed out by God to men of God by means of the Spirit, who chose the words employed according to the personality and background of the human author, and that these writings were without error and are of supreme and final authority in the lives of believers in any age.

Concerning God

We believe there is but one true God, who eternally exists as three distinct persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who exclusively share in the work of creation, sustenance, redemption and judgment.

Concerning Man and His Need

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but because of Adam’s sin that image was damaged, and that all human beings are now born with a sinful nature, are unable to function in moral responsibility before God, and need a spiritual regeneration before they can become what they were meant to be.

The New Year Promise & The Christian

With every passing new year, Christians in the millions cling on to a promise or promises from the Bible, and ever so desperately if they happen to be facing adversity. These promises of a great future, prosperity, health and so on are relevant except that these promises, verses, need to be understood and applied in the context of the biblical narrative, and also in tandem with other scriptural truths, else one can be guilty of having a lopsided view of God and life.

SALVATION

Col 2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them.

If rhythm could be infused into this verse, it would be then the part which would be the crescendo of a victorious war anthem.Such is the energy, the bravado and the glory of these written words that it touches the very nerve of  the battle between good and evil. This verse paints us a picture of two amazing things that happened when He nailed the law to His cross. Read more

Power to the Faint

ISA 40:29 to 31 – He giveth power to the faint;
and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
and the young men shall utterly fall:
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint. Read more

Entering the Kingdom

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Bewildered, Nicodemus, a pharisee and a ruler of the Jews, asks Jesus whether that meant entering a mother’s womb to be born again, quite literally.

God’s Kingdom, three things: the criterion, the cause, and the character. Read more

THE HOUND OF HEAVEN

During my lowest phase, as I wandered, destitute and ragged, it was the passionate and the relentless pursuit of the hound of heaven that forever changed my life. He followed me, surely, goodness and mercy followed me!

THE HOUND OF HEAVEN, FRANCIS THOMPSON

I fled Him, down the nights and down the days;
I fled Him, down the arches of the years;
I fled Him, down the labyrinthine ways
Of my own mind; and in the midst of tears
I hid from Him, and under running laughter.
Up vistaed hopes I sped;
And shot, precipitated,
Adown Titanic glooms of chasmed fears,
From those strong Feet that followed, followed after. Read more

THE CROSS BEFORE THE CROWN

  •  And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. Matt 10:38

Christianity as perceived by some is the stuff of “crowns”, a theology identified by popular labels such as prosperity, abundance and security. This is a form of Christianity which supposedly guarantees immunity from suffering and is akin to a “talisman” that  prevents danger. Read more
