- There is only one God, and that He is eternally existent in Three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- God the Father is the Creator of the universe. He created man in His own image for fellowship, and called man back to Himself through Christ after the rebellion and fall of man.
- Jesus Christ is eternally God. He was together with the Father and the Holy Spirit from the beginning, and through Him all things were made. He left heaven and became incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary; henceforth, He is forever one Christ with two natures, God and Man, in one Person.
- The Holy Spirit is God, the Lord and Giver of life, who was active in the Old Testament, and given to the Church in fullness at Pentecost. He empowers the saints for service and witness, cleanses man from the old nature, and conforms us to the image of Christ.
- The baptism in the Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in tongues, subsequent to conversion, releases the fullness of the Spirit and is evidenced by the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit.
- The Bible containing the Old and New Testaments is alone the only infallible, inspired Word of God, and its authority is ultimate, final, and eternal. It cannot be added to, subtracted from, or superseded in any regard. The Bible is the source of all doctrine, instruction, correction, and reproof. It contains all that is needed for guidance in godliness and practical Christian conduct.
- Christ’s vicarious death on the cross paid the penalty for the sins of the whole world. Its benefits of healing (body, soul, and spirit) are provided for in the atonement as well.
- Salvation is a free gift of God, based on the merits of the death of His Son, and is appropriated by faith. Salvation is effected by personal repentance, belief in the Lord Jesus (justification), and personal acceptance of Him into one’s life as Lord and Saviour (regeneration).
- The Christian life is to be one of consecration, devotion, and holiness. The shortcomings of the individual are due to the still-progressing sanctification of the saints. The Christian life is filled with trials, tests, and warfare against a spiritual enemy. For those abiding in Christ until their deaths or His return, the promises of eternal blessing in the presence of God are assured.
- The Church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God among the saints through the Spirit. Every believer born of the Spirit has a place in the church designated by God; a place where Christ is working in the lives of the called-out ones and calling ministers to the Great Commission, to go into all the world and make disciples of every nation.
- In the ordinances of Baptism and The Lord’s Supper. Baptism is the outward sign of what God has already done in the individual’s life, and is a public testimony that the person now belongs to Christ. In it the new believer identifies with the death and resurrection of Jesus.
Baptisms are performed in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Lord’s Supper is a commemoration of the death of the Lord and is done in remembrance of Him until He comes again. It is a sign of our participation in Him.
- In the bodily, personal, second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, the resurrection of the saints, the millennium, and the final judgment. The final judgment will determine the eternal status of both the saints and the unbelievers, determined by their relationship to Jesus Christ.
In 2009, Pastor Wesley, as a young teenage boy had an encounter with a street preacher in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham. He was not raised in a Christian home but this encounter completely revolutionised his life. The street preacher approached him and his friends, shared the gospel with them, of how Jesus Christ suffered the death penalty and died on the cross to save them from their sin. Wesley received this within his heart, he testifies that the hatred he felt towards his enemies had left, the fear of God entered into his heart and he knew he needed whatever this man was telling him about. He was led in prayer to receive Jesus as Lord and Saviour then and there on the streets.
All three of them left the encounter each of them saying they felt a weight lifted, a sense of every need being satisfied. Truly a salvation experience.
After going to a Church service that same night at The Potter’s House Erdington Church, he got into the wrong crowd. There had always been a deep desire to fit in, to be accepted by peers and to conform to what the majority were doing. This led to weekly partying, underage drinking, a fair share of violence and disorderly behaviour. All throughout this time the questions raged on in his heart: What about that Church? Where am I going in the afterlife? Am I meant to be living this way? At age 18 he began to attend the Church again, this time with a purpose, to know this Jesus whom he’d met 3 years prior.
He then recommitted his life to Jesus in a Church with the conviction that this is final. Being discipled in The Potter’s House Erdington, Birmingham Church he’d learnt leadership, worship leading, conducting outreaches, leading prayer meetings and working with people to pursue the will of God.
Whilst on an outreach, Wesley testifies he heard the voice of God deep in his heart to be a minister of the Gospel to a world broken in sin, therefore devoted his life to the Gospel and further pursued discipleship.
After 3 years of serving Jesus Christ, he met his soon to be wife within the Church. Already knowing each other through family ties, Natalie attended a church service and received Christ as Lord and Saviour. The two got married at 22 years old in 2015, and were released into Walsall, West Midlands in February 2018 and to this day are doing a work for God in the Walsall Town.
