This statement constitutes a guide of the fundamental beliefs of Heritage of Faith Ministries International. The programs and activities thereof shall at all times, be consistent with this statement.
The scriptures in their original form, both the Old and New Testament, are divinely inspired and are the revelation of God to man. All scripture is God-breathed by the Holy Spirit who inspired the authors, revealing to them what, He wanted written [Acts 1:16; 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:20-21].These are infallible truth, containing no contradiction or error. It is the final authority for faith, doctrine and life. The canon of the Bible is closed. Christians must remain receptive to the illumination of scriptural truth by the Holy Spirit [Matt. 5:17; Luke 4:17-21; 23:27,44; John 5:39; 1 Cor. 14:37; 2 Pet 3:15,16].
God is Spirit – infinite, eternal, uncreated and unchangeable in His being or attributes. In Him all things have their source, support and end [John 4:24; Ps. 102:25-27; Gen. 1:1,26; John 1:1-3; Heb. 1-3; Col. 1:15-17].There is one true God who has a plural nature – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit – all distinct personalities, all designated God [John 1:1,14,18; Heb. 1:18; Acts 5:3,4].The Bible does not teach that there are three Gods, but upholds the doctrine of the Trinity – one God who reveals Himself in three persons – equal in power and glory
[Gen. 1:26; Matt 3:16-17; 28:19; Acts 10:38; 1 Cor. 12:4-6].
"Now brethren, you know that the household of Stephanas were the first converts and our first fruits and they have devoted themselves to the ministry of the saints” [1 Corinthians16:15].
Kit and I have purposed in our hearts to develop an addiction for the word of God. All we need to do is to give it our undivided time and attention. The more we give ourselves to it, the more the desire will grow!
We want the word to penetrate so deep that it consumes our lives completely; spirit, soul and body [1 Thessalonians 5:23]; the more you get, the more you want! We believe the Holy Spirit, the Spirit behind the word, will draw us and lead us closer to Jesus than we ever thought possible.
We are determined to be “Word Addicts”.
Affirmation is one of my wife’s favourite traits, believing that our acceptance of one another is crucial to our success as a family.
1 Corinthians 13 teaches us some valuable lessons on relationships, if the power of love is real? And it is.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Love suffers long and is kind, love does not envy, love does not parade itself and is not puffed up; it does not behave rudely, is never selfish, neither is it provocative and thinks no evil. Love does not rejoice in the frailties of others, because it understands truth. It bears up under all things [circumstances, trials and tribulations] it believes all things, hopes all things and endures all things.
Why? Because the very power of love is affirmative. God is the original advocate of affirmative action.
