what we believe

ARK Statement of Faith

 

  • We believe there is only one true God who is the eternal King, Creator and Redeemer of all that is. He is perfectly holy, just, loving and truthful. He has revealed Himself to be eternally self-existent – one being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
     

  • We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives. It has the power to transform.
     

  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is both God and man the only one who can reconcile us to God the Father. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.
     

  • We believe we are saved by God's grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repenting, believing and receiving Jesus as their Saviour and Lord. The Holy Spirit, convicts, comforts, justifies and adopts us as we enter the kingdom of God as His sons and daughters.
     

  • We believe the Church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ. He gave His church the ordinances of water baptism and communion. The Church exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ and further advance His kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, preaching and living the good news of God's love, and discipling the nations – baptising and teaching them to love and obey God.
     

  • We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 1:4-8 and 2:4 is poured out on believers that they might have power to be witnesses. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues.
     

  • We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together for fellowship, prayer and the ‘breaking of bread’.
     

  • We believe in the Biblical principle of tithing. In Malachi 3:10 the Bible talks about bringing the first 10% (tithe) of your income into the storehouse (church). Tithes and Offerings received at Ark Ministries fund the vision and activities of our church.
     

  • We believe in the victorious redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides freedom from the power of the enemy – sin, lies, sickness and torment.
     

  • We believe in the ever-increasing government of God and in the Blessed Hope, which is the glorious visible return of our Lord Jesus Christ for His overcoming bride – His church. Heaven and hell are real places. As believers we believe heaven is our eternal destination.
