Our Mission & Statement of Faith

Mission Statement

The foremost purpose of House of Faith Ministries is to glorify God who created all things for His glory and honour.  We are to glorify God the Father, through His Son, Jesus Christ, whom he has appointed heir of all things.  When a believer receives Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, they become a new creation in Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17).  From beginning to end, the Christian life is one where the believer is “being transformed” into Christ’s image with ever-increasing glory (2 Corinthians 3:18).

Christlikeness is the goal for every Christian because the Apostle John said that “we shall be like Him, for one day we shall see Him as He is” (1 John 3:2).  John also states that in this world we are like Jesus (1 John 4:17). The more the believer seeks to imitate Christlikeness in their day-to-day life, the more triumphant that person will be in properly handling the tests, trials, temptations and troubles in this world.  Christlikeness is manifested by a life of faith, fruit-bearing, character, service, loving God and others, forgiving and witnessing the gospel to others.

At House of Faith, we seek to edify the body of Christ by building Christlike Lives, Public worship, Bible classes, Christian Education, Discipleship, small groups and various ministries for young and old, married and single are some of the means used by House of Faith to mould new creations in Christ to maturity. The victorious Christian life is a spirit-filled and spirit-guided life of worship, praise, prayer, overcoming and service.

The Christlike believer has a new thought life that continuously seeks to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord (2Peter 3:18). Also, the Christlike believer understands that the power of life and death resides in the tongue, and that no corrupt communication should proceed from the mouth (Colossians 3: 8-10; Proverbs 18:21).

We believe Christianity is manifested by commitment to serving in one’s local church; visiting and praying for the sick and bereaved; providing financial and moral support to the poor; bringing the gospel to those incarcerated; and helping to mend those adversely affected by broken relationships and misdirected lives. We seek to speak life and positive affirmations to build-up our families, communities and society in general, which are all in need of spiritual guidance.

We thank God for the victory that is assured in Christ Jesus, who always causes us to triumph.

 

Our Statement of Faith

  • We believe that there is only one God, who has created all things for His glory and honour. This one God has manifested Himself to mankind as the Father in creation, the Son in redemption, and the Holy Spirit indwelling and inspiring those who place their trust in Him.

  • We believe that God is love and that sacrificial love was shown to fallen humanity when the Father gave the Son to redeem all who believe in the Son.

  • We believe that Jesus Christ was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless human life, willingly took upon Himself all of our sins, died and rose again bodily, and is at the right hand of the Father as our advocate and mediator. Someday, He will return to consummate history and to fulfil the eternal plan of God.

  • We believe that apart from Jesus Christ, all people are spiritually lost and, because of sin, deserve the judgment of God. However, God gives salvation and eternal life to anyone who trusts in Jesus Christ and in His sacrifice on his or her behalf. Salvation cannot be earned through personal goodness or human effort; instead, it is a gift that must be received by humble repentance and faith in Christ and His finished work on the cross.

  • We believe in water baptism as a public profession of a person’s faith in Christ.

  • We believe that according to scripture, this baptism includes complete immersion and is administrated in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

  • We believe that one must be born again spiritually to see and to enter the Kingdom of God.

  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is essential to salvation and convicts the world of sin and draws people to Christ.

  • We believe that the Bible is God’s unique and written revelation to people. It is the inspired, infallible Word of God, and the supreme and final authority on all matters upon which it teaches. No other writings are vested with such divine authority.

  • We believe the Bible teaches that there is both a place called Heaven and Hell. The believer goes eternally to Heaven and the sinner eternally to Hell.
