Statement of Faith

We believe in

The Sovereignty and grace of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit in creation providence revelation redemption and final judgement;

The divine inspiration of Holy Scripture and its consequent entire trustworthiness and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct;

The utter depravity of human nature (Gen. 3:23-24). The necessity for repentance and regeneration (John 3:5) and the eternal doom of the finally impenitent (Matt 25:44-46).

The Virgin Birth (Matt. 1:18) Sinless Life (1 Peter 2:22); Atoning Death (1 John 2:2);

Triumphant Resurrection (Mark 16:6; 1Coth 15:20); Ascension (Act 1:9-11); the Priestly Intercessions of our Lord Jesus Christ (1 John 2:1);

The substitutionary sacrifice of the incarnate Son of God as the sole and all-sufficient ground of redemption from guilt and power of sin and from its eternal consequences;

The justification of the sinner solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ crucified and risen from the dead.

The illuminating regeneration indwelling and sanctifying work of God the Holy Spirit;

The priesthood of all believers who from the universal Church the Body of which Christ is the Head and which is committed by his command to the proclamation of the Gospel throughout the world;

The expectation of the personal visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory and Millennial Reign upon the Earth (Rev. 20:4-6)

*The institution and unique covenant of marriage based upon a public, life-long, exclusive commitment between a natural man and a natural woman; the only God given context for the physical and joyful expression of sexuality as symbolic of the union between Christ and His church;

(Genesis 1:27)

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them (Genesis 2:22-24)

Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,' for she was taken out of man.”
For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.

 

Marriage as a life long commitment.

(Malachi 2:16)
“I hate divorce,” says the LORD God of Israel, “and I hate a man's covering himself with violence as well as with his garment,” says the LORD Almighty.
So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith.

The valuing of the gift and calling of some Christians to celibate singleness; 

The nine gifts of the Holy Spirit for the edification, exhortation, spiritual and physical healing and comfort of the church which is the Body of Christ (1Corth. 12: 8-10);

Church government by Apostle, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, Teachers (Eph. 4:13), Elders and Deacons.

 

Our Doctrinal Beliefs are:

We believe we are part of the Body of Christ and are also unique in our calling one Body, many parts (1 Corinthians 12:12).

The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. (1 Cor. 12:12-20).

We believe in respecting, recognising and working with other unique parts of the body without criticising the weaker part but strengthening such if and when permitted (1 Cor. 12:23; 26).

We believe in the uncompromising gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ i.e. as there will be many false prophets, ministers and churches in this end time, we do not associate with such, we are expected to expose such from the word of God so as to educate the body of Christ as we declare our association with the faithful (2 Tim. 3:1-5).

We believe in planting churches in every continent in the globe with a view to discipling nations and raising an army of people for Christ (Matt. 24:14; Matt. 28:19-20).

We believe in training and equipping the church through the ministry gifts to prepare God’s people for the work of service, as every Christian is called into a ministry (Eph. 4:11-14).

We believe in contributing to social needs of our communities as a means of demonstrating God’s love (Luke 10:25-37) (The Good Samaritan).

We believe in the power of prayer and fasting, praying God’s will to manifest. (Matthew 9:37)

Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest* is plentiful but the workers are few (Matthew 21:22).

If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” (Mark 9:29)

He replied, “This kind can come out only by prayer.” (John 14:12-14)

CFT is an Apostolic Church hence, we believe in devoting ourselves to the Apostolic teaching, to fellowship, to breaking of bread and to prayer. (Ephesians 2:20), built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.

They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. (Acts 2:42-47) 

We believe in supporting our church with our Giving (2 Cor. 8:1-5; 2 Cor. 9:6-14; Mal. 3:6-12).

We believe we are part of God’s End Time Army with a mandate of territorial protection.

We believe in submitting to and working with our spiritual authority and the government of our Nation while we encourage our members to actively participate in politics and government without compromising their Christian Faith or Values (Rom 13:1-7).

* CFT believes that this is the only form of marriage and union that is compatible with Christian doctrine. All other sexual relationships, inter alia, same sex relationships are not compatible with the Christian faith and/or Christian doctrine and are not equivalent or similar to a marital relationship between a natural man and a natural woman. CFT gives primacy to Christian doctrine in all matters and its position is consistent with the doctrine of Romans 1.

Some recent developments in equality and anti-discrimination laws are contrary to Christian teaching. For the avoidance of doubt, on all matters of ethics, including without limitation sexual ethics, the decision of the Leadership of CFT on the compatibility of conduct or beliefs with the Leadership’s understanding of Christian doctrine and the Christian faith is final and the final authority.
