Full Gospel fundamentals
The Holy scriptures, we believe that the
Holy bible is the word of the living God;
true, immutable steadfast unchangeable
as its author, The Lord Jehovah and that
it was writen by holy men of old as they
were moved by the Holy Spirit, that it is a
lighted lamp to guide the feet of a lost
world, from the depts of sin and sorrow
to the heights of righteousness and glory
a plumbline to make straight the
life of each individual and community

we believe in being baptised with the HOly
Ghost and fire a conduit to the apostolic
commission St. Luke 24:49, Act 2:4 which
is a spiritual baptism
we believe that Jesus is our coming
King, the second coming of our Lord
Acts 1:10-11, Jesus the great physician
James 5:14, Baptizes, the spirit filled
life Acts 2:4.
our Saviour, salvation through grace
the new birth the Virgin birth
we believe that there is but one true
and living God maker of heaven and
earth and all that in them is the Alpha
and Omega, and in the unity of the God
head. There are three equal in every
divine perfection executing distinct but
harmonious offices in the great work of
redemption
The Son co-existent and co-eternal with
the father.
The Holy Spirit - the third person in the God
head The spirit of the father shed abroad
John 5-7
