We are an evangelical Christian movement whose mission is to preach and teach the Gospel with a special emphasis on the Return of the Lord Jesus Christ and other unfulfilled Bible prophecy.
We believe in a Triune Creator God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, eternal, holy and worthy of all honour and praise, omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. We believe that Christ became incarnate as a Man through His virgin birth, remained sinless throughout His earthly life and died on the Cross, where He was made sin for us; that He rose again bodily and ascended to His Father’s right hand. We believe that every believer is indwelt by the Holy Spirit, who convicts of sin and empowers us for service. We believe that men and women are born spiritually dead with a fallen nature, but that each one is given a conscience which alerts to the need to be reconciled to God. We believe that God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should be saved. However all have the freedom to reject Him. Salvation in any age or dispensation is only through faith following repentance, and is purchased by the blood of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God.
We believe that the Bible is the Spirit breathed inerrant, infallible word of God, which is profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction and instruction in righteousness.
PRINCIPLES OF PROPHECY
We believe that all unconditional prophecies in the Bible are fulfilled at God’s appointed time, and that where the plain sense makes sense, prophecy should be interpreted literally and not allegorically. Our stand is Pre-Millennial and Pre-Tribulational.
We believe that the present Church Age will end with the Rapture, which should be regarded as potentially ever-imminent, demanding vigilance and preparedness. At the Rapture the bodies of the dead in Christ will rise first and living believers will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air and our bodies will be transformed to immortality. As the espoused Bride of Christ we will be taken to His ‘Father’s House’. Our works will be tested and rewarded as appropriate.
THE END TIME TRIBULATION PERIOD
We believe that on earth following Rapture a short period of unprecedented, intensifying suffering will ensue, culminating in the Great Tribulation, bringing the world to the brink of extinction. Israel will be in the eye of the storm, suffering the wrath of Satan; but God will bring that nation to recognition, repentance and salvation. Myriads of Gentiles will be saved and many martyred; the remainder of mankind will suffer the wrath of God.
CHRIST’S COMING IN POWER
We believe that Jesus Christ will return in power and great glory as the Battle of Armageddon is raging. Satan will be sealed in the Abyss and his armies destroyed. Tribulation martyrs will be raised and the survivors of the nations segregated into ‘sheep’, who will be welcomed into the 1,000 year righteous rod-of-iron reign of Christ in a restored earth, while the ‘goats’ will perish to await the second resurrection.
THE END OF THE WORLD
We believe that, following this Millennium, the world and its heavens will pass away to be succeeded by new ones where righteousness will dwell; believers will be eternally with the Lord. The second resurrection judgment, exclusively for the unsaved, will be conducted by Christ at His Great White Throne. We believe that punishment will be eternal.
