Please take a few moments to read through our statement of faith and our standards of beliefs. This will enable you to become better acquainted with our mission and vision.

Statement of Faith

1. We believe in the divine inspiration, truthfulness and authority of both Old and New Testament Scriptures in their entirety as the only written Word of God, without error in all that it affirms, and the only infallible rule of faith and practice.

2. We believe that it is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously
address injustice as a people and ministry.

3. We believe that God is committed to the historical education of African people in
Diaspora, the liberation of the oppressed (world wide) and the reconciliation and
restoration of His children.

4. We believe that there is one God eternally existent in three persons--Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

5. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.

6. We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit and repentance is absolutely essential for the salvation of lost and sinful man.

7. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live an obedient life.

8. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ and that the Church, the Body of Christ, is God's institution.

9. We believe that we have a holy calling to walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit, and so to live in the power of the indwelling Spirit in order that we will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. The flesh is never eradicated in this life. Individuals must choose to keep the flesh in subjection to Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit, or it will surely manifest its presence in life and dishonor our Lord.

10. We believe that Satan is a person, the author of sin, and the reason for the fall of man, and is destined to the judgment of an eternal punishment in the lake of fire.

11. We believe that all true believers in Christ will work to address issues of racism, poverty, oppression, homelessness, sickness and disease.

12. We believe that economic parity should not take place through the “fleecing” of
God’s people or at their expense.

13. We believe in the importance of marriage, and although the Bible states that divorce is permissible in two unusual circumstances adultery and abandonment of a Christian by a non-Christian. Therefore, we will do all we can to preserve marriage.

14. We believe that the Bible is clear that violence is never an option to gain or maintain power or control over an intimate partner, spouse or family member.

15. We believe that all psychological/sociological principles, emotional support and advice should be thoroughly evaluated through the grid of Scripture, and that Scripture always holds the final authority.
