“ . . . come fellowship with us but our fellowship is with the Father and with the Son” 1 John 1:3


Statement of Faith

The following Statement of Faith expresses the beliefs we share as a church. We do not presume that the Statement is exhaustive. It, however, covers cardinal and fundamental truths for Christian living as we understand them and conforms to those things clearly set in order in the Holy Scriptures.


We believe that the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are inspired by God and are the full revelation of God to man. The Scriptures are the sole and final authority for all matters of faith and conduct. (II Timothy 3:15-17; II Peter 1:20-21.)


We believe that there is one true God who has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent I AM, the Creator of the universe and the Redeemer of mankind. God has further revealed Himself as a Triune being, manifested as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deutoronomy 6:4; Exodus 3:14; Genesis 1:1; John 1:1-3; Isaiah 43:10-11; Matthew 28:18-20; Luke 3:21-22.)


We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • His Deity. Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, fully God and fully man. (Isaiah 7:14, 9:6; Luke 1:26-35; John 1:1-18.)
  • His Death and Resurrection. Christ died for our sins, was buried, rose again the third day and personally appeared to His disciples. (Acts 1:1-3; Romans 4:25; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4.)
  • His Ascension. Christ bodily ascended into heaven, is exalted at the right hand of the Father, where He is interceding for us as our High Priest. (Acts 1:1-3, 7:55-56; Ephesians 1:20-23.)


We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus, to convict of sin, righteousness and judgement, to regenerate the sinner and to administer the life of Christ. We also believe that:
  • The scripture commands that all believers be initially baptized in, and continually filled with the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:1-4, 4:29-31, 10:44-48, 19:1-6; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Galatians 3:14-15; Ephesians 5:18-20.)
  • The Holy Spirit gives special gifts and empowers the believers beyond their natural abilities to carry out the on-going ministry of Jesus through the Church. (Romans 12:3-8; 1 Corinthians 12:4-14; Ephesians 4:7-16.)
  • The Holy Spirit indwells, guides and enables us to live the Spirit-filled life daily, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. (John 14:16-17, 26; Ephesians 5:18.)


We believe man was created in the image and likeness of God, but through Adam’s sin became alienated from God, acquired a sin nature and came under the sentence of death. Mankind, apart from God, is spiritually depraved and unable to attain divine righteousness. (Genesis 1:25-27; Romans 3:23, 5:12-21, 7:13-25.)


We believe:
  • Man’s only hope of redemption and salvation from sin and its penalty is by God’s grace received through faith in the blood of Christ shed on the cross of Calvary. (Acts 4:12; Romans 5:11, 10:8-10; Ephesians 2:8-9; Heb. 9:12-22.)
  • That faith in Jesus Christ should be followed by water baptism by immersion as commanded in the scriptures thus identifying with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection and by submission to the leadership of the Church to be discipled in the ways of God. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:35-39, 10:47-48; 19:1-6; Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:11-12.)


We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ in the earth, the habitation of God through the Spirit, endued with divine power and ability to fulfill her great commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of Christ’s Body, the Church. (1 Corinthains 12:12-27; Ephesians 1:22-23, 2:20-22, 3:10-21; Hebrews 12:23.)
The responsibilities and work of the Church are:
  • Evangelism: We believe that the mission of the Church is the evangelization of the world. Each individual, with the collective body, must seek to establish the Kingdom of God in the home, community, nation and the world. (Acts 1:8; Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15-16.)
  • Discipleship: We believe that the church is a corporate body in which redeemed man may know God, worship Him and be perfected in the image of Christ. (1 Corinthains 12; Ephesians 3:16-19; 4:16.)
The Local Church is a body of Christians bound together in covenant commitment. It represents the Body of Christ in a given locality and time. It is under the sovereign headship of the Lord Jesus Christ, administered through a team of elders exercising autonomous government under Him, administering all its affairs and ministry. The Local Church should seek to operate in harmony with the Church Universal. (Matthew 16:18, 18:15-20; Acts 15:22; 1 Corinthians 12:12-31.)


We believe the Lord’s Supper or Holy Communion is an Ordinance of the Church in which all believers, by partaking in faith, share in fellowship with God and one another and commemorate the suffering and death of our Lord Jesus Christ until He returns. (Matthew 26:26-28; 1 Corinthians 11:28-32.)


We believe that divine healing and health are provided for in God’s Covenants and are an integral part of the Gospel and the practice of the Church. (Exodus 15:23-26; Psalm 103:1-3; Is. 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17; Acts 4:30, 5:16; 1 Corinthians 12:9; James 5:14-15; 1 Peter 2:24.)


We believe in the priesthood of the believer. Every believer, having repented of his sins and accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his Saviour, has free access into the presence of God. Jesus, being our High Priest, has opened up for us a ‘new and living way’. (Hebrews 4:14-16, 10:10-22.)


We believe that:
  • Christ will visibly return to the earth in power and glory.
  • Those who are dead will be physically resurrected.
  • Believers will live and reign with Him eternally as He establishes His Government in the earth and brings final judgement on it.
  • Unbelievers will be eternally separated from God in a place of torment prepared for the devil and his angels.
 (John 14:1-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Mark 9:43; Revelation 20:10-15.)


We believe in the reality of Satan and that his present control over unregenerate man does exist. (Job 1:6; John 10:10; II Corinthians 4:4; Ephesians 2:1-8, 12-13.)


We believe the Church should be supported by the committed freewill contributions and offering of its members, doing so joyfully in keeping with the principles of tithing, that they may abound and that there be an abundance to accomplish the purposes of God.  (Malachi 3:10-12; II Corinthians  9:6-12; Luke 6:38; Genesis 14:20.)
WHOLE LIFE MINISTRIES and FELLOWSHIP TABERNACLE are committed to the highest level of integrity in business and financial matters. Funds received (contributions, offerings, gifts) but not designated for a specific purpose will be used at the discretion of the leaders to meet the needs of the ministry in fulfilling the vision. The books and accounts will be open to examination by official members. A certified accountant will prepare official financial statements annually.
As a church, we will give to other ministries considered deserving and in keeping with our vision of the Kingdom of God.
We will not, in our worship service, over-emphasize money, except as is germane to teaching and building the Body. We expect members to give as a way of life and to responsibly see to meeting the needs of the ministry.
We will, as directed by the Holy Spirit, from time to time, make major or minor investments. All these would be in keeping however, with our goals and objectives.
