What We Believe

1. Scriptures
We believe that the Scriptures, Old and New Testaments, are inspired by God and are the full revelation of God to man. The Scriptures are the sole and final authority for all matters of faith and conduct. (2 Tim. 3:15 -17; 2 Pet 1:20-21).

2. God
We believe that there is one true God who has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent I AM, the Creator of the Universe and the Redeemer of mankind. God has further revealed Himself as a Triune, being manifested as Father, Son and Holy Spirit- each co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, coequal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections. (Deut. 6:4;  Gen. 1:1; John 1:1-3; Isa. 43:10-11; Matt. 28:18-20; Luke 3:21-22 John 14:10, 26; 2 Cor. 13:14)

3.  Jesus
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.

  1. His Deity: Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, fully God and fully man. (Isa 7:14, 9:6; Luke 1:26- 35; John 1:1-18 Gal. 4:4-5; Phil 2:5-8)
  2. His Death and Resurrection accomplished our redemption: He died for our sins on the cross, was buried, rose again on the third day and personally appeared to his disciples. (Acts 1: 1-3; Acts 2:18-36; Rom 4:25; 1 Cor 15:1-4; 1 Peter 1:3-5)
  3. His Ascension: Christ bodily ascended into heaven is exalted at the right hand of the Father, where He is interceding for us as our High Priest. (Acts 1: 1-3; 7:55-56; Rom 8:34; Eph 1:20-23; Heb 9:24)

4. The Holy Spirit
We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus; to convict of sin, of righteousness and of judgment, to regenerate the sinner and to administer the life of Christ. (John 16:8)
 
We also believe that:

  1. The scripture commands that all believers be initially baptized in, and continually filled with the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:3-4, 4:29-31, 10:44-48, 19:1-6; Rom 8:9; ICor 12:12-14; Gal 3:14-15; Eph 5:18-20)
  2. The Holy Spirit gives special gifts and empowers the believers beyond their natural abilities to carry out the on-going ministry of Jesus through the Church. (Rom 12:3-8; I Cor. 12:4-14; Eph 4:7-16)
  3. The Holy Spirit indwells, guides and enables us to live the Spirit-filled life daily, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. (John 14:16-17,26; Eph 5:18;1 John 2:20, 27)

5. Man
We believe man was created in the image and likeness of God, but through Adam's sin became alienated from God; man acquired a sinful nature and came under the sentence of death. Mankind apart from God, is spiritually depraved and unable to attain divine righteousness. (Gen 1: 26-27; Rom 3:23,5:12-21,7:13-25; Eph. 2:1-3)

6. Salvation
We believe man's only hope of redemption and salvation from sin and its penalty is by God's grace received through faith in the blood of Christ shed on the cross of Calvary. (Acts 4:12; Rom 5:11, 10:8-10; Eph 2:8-9; Heb 9:12-22)

7. The Ordinances of the Church

Baptism in Water
The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded by the Scriptures. All who repent and believe on Christ as Saviour and Lord are to be baptized. Thus they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16, Acts 10:47-48, Romans 6:4)

Holy Communion
We believe the Lord's Supper or Holy Communion is an Ordinance of the Church in which all believers, by partaking in faith, share in fellowship with God and one another and commemorate the suffering and death of Our Lord Jesus Christ until He returns. (Matt. 26:26-28; 1 Cor. 11:28-32)

8. Healing
We believe that divine healing and health are provided for in God's Covenants and are an integral part of the Gospel and the practice of the Church. (Ex 15:23-26; Ps 103:1-3; Isa. 53:4-5; Matt. 8:16-17; Acts 4:30,5:16:1 Cor. 12:9; James 5:14-15; I Pet. 2:24)

9.  Missions
We believe that God has given the church a great commission to proclaim the Gospel to all nations so that there might be a great multitude from every nation, tribe, ethnic group, and language group who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. As ambassadors of Christ, we must use all available means to go to the foreign nations and not wait for them to come to us. (Matt. 28:19-20; Mark 16:15; Luke 24:46-48; John 20:21; Acts 1:8; 2 Cor. 5:20)

10. Giving
We believe that every Christian, as a steward of that portion of God's wealth entrusted to him, is obligated to financially support KMOCF. We believe that God has given us the biblical principle of tithing as a basis for giving, but that every Christian should also give other offerings sacrificially and cheerfully to the support of the church, the relief of those in need, and the spread of the Gospel. (Gen. 14:20; Prov. 3:9-10; Mai. 3:10-12 Acts 4:34-37; 1 Cor. 16:2; 2 Cor. 9:6-7; Gal. 6:6; Eph. 4:28; 1 Tim. 5:17-18; 1 John 3:17)

11. Christ's Return and Judgement

We believe that:

  1. The second coming of Christ includes the rapture of the saints, which is our blessed hope, followed by the visible return of Christ with His saints to reign on earth for one thousand years. (Zech 14:5; Rev. 1:7; 1 Thess. 4:16-17)
  2. Believers will live and reign in the millennial reign of Christ as He establishes His Government. He will bring salvation to the nation Israel and universal peace to the earth. (Is 11:6-9 Ezek 37:21-22; Rom 11:26-27; 2 Pet. 3:13)
  3. There will be a final judgment in which the unbelievers will be eternally separated from God and judged according to their works. Whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life, together with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet will be consigned to the everlasting punishment in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. (Matt 25:46; Mk. 9:43-48; Rev.l9:20; 20:11-15)
