We Believe …
In God the Father, Maker of all things, Who is no respecter of persons; and we believe in Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son, Who was uniquely anointed to manifest God and to redeem humanity.
That Jesus was essentially African in origin. While Abraham, the father, was located in Asia, after hundreds of years in Egypt, northern Africa — and Canaan — during which obvious assimilation of religion, philosophy, medicine, art, architecture, engineering, etc., occurred, what was passed on to Jesus was Africanness.
That in His redemptive work, Jesus, employing different methods, identified with and focused His ministry primarily toward the poor, sick, powerless, and rejected.
His Very Person and work (and also his servants in every age) produced an inevitable conflict with societal rules, Jesus’ redemptive work creates a new person, who in turn, constitutes a new society whose interests, values, mores, lifestyle, and ethics are/were often in direct conflict with systems and rulers of this world.
That God, the Father, and Jesus Christ, through the Holy Spirit, call, fill, and send human beings of every race, nationality, gender, class, and age to continue the ministry of Jesus Christ.
That Jesus will come again — as He promised. While it is not absolutely clear what this means, we believe that when Jesus returns, there will be a dramatic supernatural in-break into history; at that point a new heaven and a new earth will begin in which peace and righteousness will flourish.
That scientific discovery, space exploration, and political and economic revolutions are all part of the divine plan in which God, through Jesus Christ, is at work, moving all things toward His consummation.
