Statement of Faith

  1. The Scriptures:  We believe that all Scripture (the Holy Bible) is inspired of God, and is His revelation to man, is infallible and is the final authority for faith and conduct.
     

  2. The Godhead:  We believe in one eternal God, that He is Spirit, existing equally in three Persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – and that He is all-present, all-powerful and all-knowing, is inherently good and unchanging.
     

  3. Jesus Christ Our Lord:  We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Father, conceived by the Holy Spirit and came to the Earth in the flesh, born of the virgin Mary and that He died for our sins, rose again, ascended into Heaven and is now seated at the right hand of the Father until He comes again. 
     

  4. The Creation of Man and His Fall:  We believe that God created man in His own image, that man sinned and thereby incurred the penalty of sin - physical and spiritual death - and that, through inheritance, all human beings are born with this sinful nature.
     

  5. Eternal Life and Redemption:  We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, through His death and the shedding of His blood, became a substitutionary sacrifice for all mankind; thus making this free gift of eternal life available to all who would believe in Him.
     

  6. Salvation and the New Birth:  We believe that all who repent of their sin and, by faith (not good works), accept Jesus Christ as Lord, receive salvation, are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.
     

  7. The Lord’s Supper:  We believe in the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper (the taking of Holy Communion in the form of bread and wine) as commanded by the Lord in remembrance of His life and His Sacrificial death, until He comes again.
     

  8. Water Baptism:  We believe in the ordinance of baptism in water (full immersion) as commanded by the Lord and which is the conscious, personal decision of a believer.
     

  9. Baptism in the Holy Spirit:  We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit whereby believers are empowered with boldness to witness Christ to a dying world and equipped for service through impartation of supernatural gifts.
     

  10. Healing, Deliverance and Prosperity:  We believe that divine healing, deliverance and prosperity is an integral part of the Gospel.
     

  11. Satan:  We believe that the devil exists and is the real enemy of Christians.
     

  12. Resurrection:  We believe in the resurrection of both the just and the unjust, the eternal blessedness of the redeemed and the eternal banishment of those who have rejected the offer of salvation.
     

  13. Sanctification:  We believe that holiness commences when we are born again and is a definite and progressive work of grace which increasingly dedicates us unto God and systematically separates us from that which is evil.
     

  14. Church:  We believe the true church is the whole company of those who have been redeemed by Jesus Christ and regenerated by the Holy Spirit and therefore, the new birth and personal confession of Christ are essentials of church membership.

CLC is providing material (free of charge) for the training and equipping of students in many parts of the world.  In addition, through Steppin' Out Ministries we are working alongside ethical leaders in many poor, underprivileged areas of Africa providing food, shelter, transport, etc. (see newsletters).

Your financial help therefore would be very much appreciated. 

Of course your prayers are treasured more than anything else.
