Our Values and Beliefs

Order of St leonard

LightHouse is affiliated to Resurrection Life ministries USA,  a world ministry Centre

We value:
People, the Word of God ( the Bible), the Presence of God, Prayer, Relationships and Truth.

We adhere to the following Statement of Faith.

We believe:

THE TRINITY:
We believe that the Godhead exists co-equally and co-eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit and that these three are one God; sovereign in creation, providence and redemption.

THE FATHER:
We believe in God the Father. All sovereign and maker of all things visible and invisible. He is present everywhere, has all power, and is all-knowing.

THE SON:
We believe in the true and full deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His real and complete humanity, in His sinless life, in His authoritative teaching, in His substitutionary and atoning sacrifice through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His heavenly intercession and in His second advent to receive His Church.

THE HOLY SPIRIT:
We believe in the deity of the Holy Spirit and the necessity of His work in conviction of sin, repentance, regeneration, and sanctification, and that the believer is empowered for fuller participation in the ministry of the Church, its worship, evangelism and service. We believe that the Holy Spirit is given for power, witness and character building to prepare for service in the kingdom of God.

THE BIBLE:
We believe the Bible as originally given, to be without error, the fully inspired and infallible Word of God and the supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

HUMANKIND:
We believe in the universal sinfulness of all people since the fall, rendering men and women subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.

SALVATION:
We believe in the necessity for salvation; that is repentance towards God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ by which the sinner is pardoned and accepted as righteous in God’s sight. This justification is imputed by the grace of God because of the atoning work of Christ, is received by faith alone and is evidenced by the fruit of the Spirit and a holy life.

THE CHURCH:
We believe in the spiritual unity and priesthood of all believers in Christ irrespective of denomination, and that these comprise the universal Church, the Body of Christ.

THE MINISTRY:
We believe in the fivefold ministries that Christ has set in His Church, namely apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, and in the present operation of the manifold gifts of the Holy Spirit according to the New Testament which equips His people to serve in their diverse capacities.

WATER BAPTISM:
We believe in baptism of believers in water in obedience to the command of Christ.

HOLY COMMUNION (THE LORD’S SUPPER):
We believe in the remembrance and celebration of Christ’s death by partaking of the bread and wine in communion with each other until His return.

THE COMMISSION:
We believe that the Gospel embraces the needs of the whole man and that the Church is therefore commissioned to preach the Gospel to the world and to fulfill a ministry of healing and deliverance to the spiritual and physical needs of mankind.

THE COMING KING:
We believe in the personal, physical and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to reign in power and glory.

THE FUTURE STATE:
We believe in the resurrection of the dead and in the final judgment of the world, the eternal conscious bliss of the righteous and the eternal conscious punishment of the wicked.
