What do we believe?

What do we believe?

A short summary of our Church:  We are a young, dynamic church.  This means that we still have a long way to go before we will be everything that Christ died for.  We are, however, eager to learn, to change and would like to allow the Potter to mould us according to His will!  We believe we are currently already making a difference, here in Polokwane, and also in our land…



  • The eternal triune God:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit
  • Jesus Christ as truly God and truly man.  He died on the cross for the sins of man and by the shedding of His blood brought eternal reconciliation between God and man.  This reconciliation is more than just the removal of our guilt;  it also includes the possibility of salvation for the individual who puts his/her faith in the completed work of Jesus on Golgotha.
  • The absolute authority of the Old and New Testament as the Inspired Word of God that forms the foundations of our faith and customs of the church.
  • The water baptism of the believer.  Baptism does not save us from sin, but serves as a symbolic identification with death and the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Baptism is seen as the second component of true conversion to God and is a step of obedience.
  • Baptism in the Holy Spirit as an experience after and separate to salvation.  This experience is a “visible” and “audible” experience in a believer’s life.
  • That each believer has gifts and talents with which he/she can work as a bulding block in the local church to the promotion of the mission of our church.
  • The practise of the gifts of the Spirit in our main services and other meetings.
  • The restoration of the church and the re-erection of the five-fold ministry – Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Shepherd and Teacher.
  • The total unity between true Christian churches.  We will dedicate ourselves to working together on all terrains so as to express the reality of the Kingdom of God to its full potential.
  • The physical return of Jesus Christ as the hope of the church.  The resurrection to life of all true believers.


What is important to us:

Although each individual has a personal vision, it is our desire to unite and place ourselves under the authority of a common vision for the church.  We can summarise our values under nine headings:

We believe that anointed teaching forms a catalyst for the change of an individual’s life, as well as the church’s.  Our teaching is thus aimed at provoking a definite reaction and change.
Rom 12:7; 2 Tim 3:16; James 1:23-25

We believe that the lost are important to God, and therefore should also be important to the church.  We are therefore involved in evangelism on all terrains.
Mrk 16:16; Matt 28:19,20; Luk 15:1; Joh 4

We believe that God pours out His creativity upon individuals by the grace of the Holy Spirit.  We therefore try to offer people the opportunity to be a part of activities where these can be expressed.
Drama, Music, Leadership, etc. (Rom 12;3-8; Eph 4:11; 1 Cor 12:7)

We believe that Christ’s followers will express a radical authenticity in an artificial world.  Personal integrity, character and wholeness is therefore important and is stipulated in our ministry programme.
James 1:21; 1 Pet 2:1-5; Eph 4:25-26

We believe that the outstanding characteristic of the manifestation of the Kingdom of God is practical love.  Real relationships, practical serving is high on our agenda.
1 Cor 13; Mat 20:25; Ps 133:1ff; Joh 13:34,35

We believe that people’s lives change the most powerfully in a small group.  Principals such as transparency, accountability and frankness are seriously emphasized and lived out.
Luk 6:12,13; Acts 2:42-47; Prov 27:17

We believe that the Congregation should be led by people with the gift of leadership.  We want to continually be busy with leadership discovery, reclamation and deployment.
Neh 1&2; Rom 12:8

We believe that it is normal for believer’s to live fully for Christ.
1 Kings 11:4; Phil 2:1-11; 2 Cor 8:7
