Our Beliefs

What we Believe

THE ONE TRUE GOD

We believe in the one ever-living, eternal God: infinite in power, Holy in nature, attributes and purpose; and possessing absolute, indivisible deity. This one true God has revealed Himself as Father, through His Son, in redemption; and as the Holy Ghost, by emanation. (1 Cor. 8:6; Eph. 4:6; 2 Cor. 5:19; Joel 2:28). The scripture does more than attempt to prove the existence of God; it asserts, assumes and declares that the knowledge of God is universal. (Romans 1:19, 21, 28, 32, 2:15). God is invisible, incorporeal, without parts, without body, and therefore free from all limitations. God is Spirit (St. John 4:24), and a spirit hath not flesh and bones. (Luke 24:39). The first of all commandments is “hear, O Israel; the Lord our God is one Lord” (Mark 12:29; Deuteronomy 6:4). “One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all” (Eph. 4:6). This one true God manifested Himself in the Old Testament in divers ways; In the New Testament, God manifested Himself as the Son while He walked among men; and as the Holy Spirit (Holy Ghost) after His ascension.

Divine Healing

James wrote in his Epistle to all the churches: ” Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15. And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. 16. Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” (James 5:14-16)

The Name of Jesus

The authority of God is vested in the Name of Jesus (Philippians 2:9-10; Matthew 7:22; Mark 16:7; John 14:14; Acts 4:12). All that the believer does “in word or deed” is to be done in Jesus’ Name (Colossians 3:17). The Name of Jesus becomes our new “family name” (I Corinthians 1:12-15; Romans 6:4: II Corinthians 5:17), The authority of the Godhead is vested in the Name of Jesus (Philippians 2:9-10; Matthew 7:22; Mark 16:7; John 14:14;)

Fundamental Doctrine


Fundamental DoctrineWe believe in the Bible standard of salvation, which is repentance, baptism by immersion in
water in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, the baptism of the Holy
Ghost with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and
the perfecting of holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.

Holiness


Godly living should characterize the life of every child of the Lord, and we should live
according to the pattern and example given in the Word of God. (Titus 2:11-12, I Peter 2:21-
23, Hebrews 12:14, I Peter 1:15-19)

The Bible

We believe the Bible to be inspired by God; the infallible Word of God. (II Timothy 3:16)  The Bible is the only God-given authority which man possesses; therefore, all doctrine, faith, hope, and all instruction for the church must be based upon, and harmonize with, the Bible. It is to be read and studied by all men everywhere, and can only be clearly understood by those who are anointed by the Holy Spirit. (I John 2:27, II Peter 1:20, 21)

Repentance and Conversion


Pardon and forgiveness of sins is obtained by genuine repentance, a confessing and
forsaking of sins. We are justified by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 5:1) John the
Baptist preached repentance, Jesus proclaimed it, and the Apostles emphasized it to both
Jews and Gentiles. (Acts 2:38, Acts 11:18, Acts 17:30)

Pastor`s Word

How good it is of you to visit our web page. I am grateful to God for His manifold blessings upon us throughout the years.

By way of background, I was born in the parish of St Ann, Jamaica. As a young girl growing up I would read my bible and pray even though I was not a Christian.

On Sunday, October 13th, 1957 I attended the Apostolic Church in Cascade, St Ann following an invitation I had received from one of my friends. When I got to the church I stood on the outside admiring the young brethren and how they were worshipping the Lord. I was approached by someone who challenged me and said, "If you think you're bad step inside"; I took the challenge and went inside the church and took a seat.

As I sat inside listening to the preacher, the preacher looked at me and said: "Would you put fire in your bosom?" I said "no". The preacher then said "would you burn somebody" I said, "why not".

He said to me "you better come to God now." I asked the preacher "who are you talking to" he replied "you." I hissed my teeth and waved my hand. Little did I know that God was using the preacher to talk to me. The preacher said unto me the second time, "you better come to God." At that point, another person came and challenged me by stating "if you think you are bad, go to the altar."

In defiance, I went to the altar to show the person that I was willing to take on the challenge. As I knelt, God took possession of my soul from that moment. I was filled with the power of the Holy Ghost and began speaking in tongues as the Spirit gave me utterance. In total fulfilment and obedience to Acts 2:38, On Sunday, October 27 th 1957, I was baptised in the name of Jesus under the leadership of Bishop R.C. Walker.
