Statement of Faith

The programs and activities governing the form of worship, membership and employment of REDEMPTION CENTRE INTERNATIONAL shall be based upon and at all times be consistent with the following creed and beliefs: 1. We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments in their original writing as fully inspired of GOD and accept them as the supreme and final authority for faith and life
2. We believe in one GOD eternal, existing in three Persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit
3. We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Father, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary and is true GOD and man
4. We believe that God created man in His own image and likeness, that man sinned and thereby incurred the penalty of sin which is death, physical and spiritual; that all human beings inherit a sinful nature which issues (in case of those who reach moral responsibility) in actual transgression involved personal guilt
5. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins as a Substitutionary Sacrifice according to the Scriptures and that all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood
6. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus, His ascension into Heaven, and His present life as our High Priest and Advocate
7. We believe in the personal return of the Lord Jesus
8. We believe that all who repent of their sin and receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of GOD
9. We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit, empowering and equipping believers for service, with the accompanying gifts of the Holy Spirit, and in fellowship with the Holy Spirit
10. We believe in divinely ordained ministries of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher
11. We believe in the resurrection of both the just and unjust, the eternal blessedness of the redeemed and the eternal banishment of those who have rejected the offer of salvation
12. We believe that the one true Church is wholly the company of those who have been redeemed by Jesus Christ and regenerated by the Holy Spirit; that the local Church on earth should take its character from this concept of the Church spiritual and therefore the new birth and personal confession of Christ are essentials for Church membership
13. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ appointed two ordinances, Baptism in water and the Lord’s Supper to be observed as acts of obedience and as perpetual witnesses to the cardinal facts of the Christian faith, burial and resurrection and that the Lord’s Supper is the partaking of the emblem symbolic of the Saviour’s broken body and shed blood in remembrance of His sacrificial death, until He returns
14. We believe that divine healing was provided for in the Old Testament and is an integral part of the Gospel
15. We believe that the Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord
16. We believe in the doctrine of sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of the new birth and continuing until the consummation of salvation
17. The Church is open to any further truth, which the Holy Spirit may illuminate from the Scriptures
18. We believe in heterosexual relationships between a natural man and a natural woman within the lawful confines of matrimony. Adherence to this stated principle of sexual behaviour is an inherent requirement for membership of or employment with Redemption Centre International
19. We believe in the principle of being in authority because you are under authority. As such, it is understood that church membership shall be subject to submission to authority in matters pertaining to church governance, doctrine and personal behaviour.
