What We Believe @ MFC

Read what we believe about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the Bible, and other significant aspects of our faith. Our beliefs guide our decisions as a church.

About the Bible

We believe that the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God, the infallible, all sufficient rule for faith and practice.

About God

We believe in the unity of the One True and Living God who is the Eternal, Self-Existent “I AM”, Who has also revealed Himself as One being co-existing in three Persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

About Jesus

We believe in the Virgin Birth, Sinless Life, Miraculous Ministry, Substitutionary Atoning Death, Bodily Resurrection, Triumphant Ascension and Abiding Intercession of the Lord Jesus Christ and in His personal, visible, bodily return in power and glory as the blessed hope of all believers.

About Sin

We believe in the fall of man, who was created pure and upright, but fell by voluntary transgression.

About Salvation

We believe in salvation through faith in Christ, who, according to the Scriptures, died for our sins, was buried and was raised from the dead on the third day, and that through His Blood we have Redemption.

About Water Baptism

We believe that all who have truly repented and believed in Christ as Lord and Savior are commanded to be baptized by immersion in water.

About The Holy Spirit

We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit as a gift for the believer with power for service, the essential, biblical evidence of which is the speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.

About Holiness

We believe in holiness of life and conduct in obedience to the command of God.

About Healing

We believe that deliverance from sickness, by Divine Healing is provided for in the Atonement.

About Communion

We believe that all who have truly repented and believe in Christ as Lord and Saviour should regularly participate in Breaking of Bread.

About The Resurrection

We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the everlasting conscious bliss of all who truly believe in our Lord Jesus Christ and the everlasting conscious punishment of all whose names are not written in the Book of Life.

About Marriage & Family

We believe that marriage was established by God and confirmed by Jesus Christ as a life-long relationship between one man and one woman. We believe that a Christian should marry within the community of faith. Christian marriage is a reflection of the love, purity and permanence between Christ and the Church. We therefore discourage divorce as a solution to marital difficulties and encourage husbands and wives to devote themselves to God and find nurture in the instruction of the body of Christ. Children are regarded as “a heritage of the Lord”. Raising them is therefore considered as a sacred trust.
