Statement of Faith

The doctrinal basis of the GHAFES shall be the fundamental truths of evangelical Christianity including:

  • The unity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the Godhead.
  • The sovereignty of God in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgement.
  • The divine inspiration and entire trustworthiness of Holy Scripture, as originally given, and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
  • The universal sinfulness and guilt of all men since the fall, rendering them subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
  • Redemption from the guilt, penalty, dominion and pollution of sin solely through the sacrificial death (as our Representative and Substitute) of the Lord Jesus Christ, incarnate Son of God.
  • The bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead and His ascension to the right hand of God the Father.
  • The presence and power of the Holy Spirit in the work of regeneration.
  • The justification of the sinner by the grace of God through faith alone.
  • The indwelling and work of the Holy Spirit in the believer.
  • The one Holy Universal Church which is the Body of Christ and to which all true believers belong.
  • The unity of all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ without respect of persons and without discrimination on account of race, colour, nation, social position or otherwise.
  • The expectation of the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
