Our Beliefs


This statement of Faith is consistent with the teaching of Faith Temple Ministry (Apostolic).

1  ONE TRUE GOD – We believe that God is the one and only true God, existing eternally in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. (Isaiah 44: 6 ; John 10;30 ; John 14:26 ; Philippians 2:5-7)  

2 THE DEITY OF JESUS CHRIST – We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternally existent son of God and shares the deity of God.  Jesus Christ is also fully man, miraculously conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary.  He became a sacrifice for sin and died on the cross, he arose from the dead, ascended into heaven where he is now seated at the right hand of God the father as our high priest and advocate (Matthew 1:23).

3 THE ORIGINAL SIN AND THE FALL OF MAN – (Genesis 1:26,27) God created man in his image and likeness, through disobedience, man sinned and is separated from God the creator.  

 4  THE SCRIPTURES – We believe that the Holy scriptures, both the New Testament and the Old Testament originated with God. They are the revelation from God to man,  inspired by the Holy Spirit. (2 Timothy 3: 16,17 ; 2 Peter 1: 20,21 )

5  SALVATION THROUGH FAITH –  Man has a sinful nature which causes him to sin. Man needs deliverance from sin and its consequences. Man can only receive salvation from God through Jesus Christ (Matthew 1:21, Luke 2:11; 19:10). This salvation from the power of sin is only possible through the shed blood of Jesus Christ and his resurrection.  By exercising faith in the person and finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ, man can obtain this salvation and spiritual life which is a free gift of grace from God (Ephesians 2:8-9).

 6  BAPTISM WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT –  The baptism with, in, or by the Holy Spirit is a gift from God (Acts 1:4-5).  To indwell, guide and empower believers for life and service. This experience is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking with tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.

 7 DIVINE HEALING – Divine healing is an Integral part of the Gospel of Christ (Acts 10:38, Galatians 3:13).  The finish work of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross not only included forgiveness of sins but the redemption provided salvation for the whole man; his spirit, soul and body. 

 8  THE BODY OF CHRIST (THE CHURCH)  – Jesus Christ is both Lord and head of his church (Ephesians 1:22-23).  The church of Christ is made up of born-again believers, born of the Holy Spirit and united as the body of Christ and appointed to fulfil the great commission.

 10  THE SACRAMENTS OF THE CHURCH  :-                                                                                                                                         

a.The Lord’s Supper – Also known as Holy Communion is where Christians share together in a token or symbolic ‘meal’ of bread and wine.  It is kept on the Lord’s authority and in his honour (1 Corinthians 11:20). 

b.Water Baptism –  Baptism in water is a ceremony which was taught and demonstrated by Jesus.  Baptism is an expression of union with Christ in dying to sin and being raised with Christ in newness of life (Mark 16:16; Acts 10:47-48).
