mission statement

Our mission is that which The Apostle Paul speaks about in Romans 11, speaking to the Gentiles, The Apostle Paul says, “For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches. And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree, do not boast against the branches.

 

But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you…For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. 

 

And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: ‘The Deliverer will come out of Zion, and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; for this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins’” (vv. 16-18, 25-27). 

Statement of faith

This statement is a guide to our beliefs as Ekklesia Ministries. All ministry programs and activities of Ekklesia shall be based upon and, at all times, be consistent with this statement.

  • THE SCRIPTURES: We believe the scripture of the Old and New Testaments, as fully inspired by God. (Acts 1:16; 2 Tim.3:16)

  • THE GODHEAD: We believe in one God, existing in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Trinity). (John 1:1-3; Gen 1:26; Acts 10:38)

  • THE MESSIAH and VIRGIN BIRTH: We believe that Jesus Christ/Yeshua the Messiah is the Son of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary and fully God and fully Human. (John 1:14; Isa.7:14; Matt.1:18-25)

  • THE HOLY SPIRIT: We believe the Holy Spirit is a Divine person, the third person of the Holy Trinity.  We believe in the baptism of in the Holy Spirit, empowering and equipping believers for service, with the accompanying supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit. (Luke 1:35; John 14:6; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:4)

  • THE CREATION AND FALL OF HUMANKIND: We believe that God created man equally in His own image; that man sinned and thereby incurred the penalty of sin in which is death physically and spiritually. (Gen.1:26-28; 3:1-6; Rom.1:12)

  • THE SALVATION OF HUMANKIND: We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ/Yeshua the Messiah and Saviour of Israel and all people died for our sins and that all who believe in Him are made righteous by His shed blood and given eternal life. (1 Cor.15:3; Gal.3:13,14; 2Cor.5:17) 

  • RESURRECTION: We believe in the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ / Yeshua, His Ascension into heaven, and His present life as our High Priest and Advocate. (1Cor.15:3,4; Luke 24:6; Acts 4:33)

  • SECOND COMING: We believe in the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ/Yeshua. In the physical, literal, and historical return of Messiah to the earth and to Israel to save, restore, judge, usher in God's Kingdom, and reign upon the throne of David. (Acts 1:10-11; Titus 2:11-13; Rev.1:7)

  • WATER BAPTISM: We believe that water baptism is the immersion of the believer in water as a confession of identification with Christ in burial and resurrection. (Matt.28:19; Acts 2:38, 39; 8:36-39; 1Pet.3:21))

  • COMMUNION: We believe that communion is the partaking of the emblems symbolic of Christ’s broken body and shed blood, in remembrance of His sacrificial death, until He come again. (Matt.26:26-29; 1Cor.10:16,17; 11:23-32)

  • DIVINE HEALING: We believe that through the shed blood of Jesus on the cross that divine healing is made available. (Isa.53:4,5; Matt.8:16; James 5:14-16)

  • THE CHURCH: The one true Church is the whole company of all believers who have been called out of sin and the world, redeemed by Jesus and regenerated by the Holy Spirit. Each Christian is an integral part of the general assembly and Church. (Matt. 16:16-19; 1Pet.2:5,9,10)

  • THE MINISTRY: We believe Every Christian is a Priest, to bring acceptable sacrifices, by full and equal access to God through Christ; a minister or servant. (Rev.1:6; Eph. 4:7, 12; 2:10)

  • MARRIAGE: We believe Marriage was instituted by God, ratified by Jesus, and is exclusively between a man and a woman. It is a picture of Christ and the Church. Sex is a gift from God for procreation and unity, and it is only appropriate within and designed for marriage. (Gen.1:27,28; Heb.13:4; 1Peter 3:1-7)           

  • GENDER EQUALITY: We believe as the bible teaches us that both man and woman were created equal by God, and in His image, that they both had a relationship with God. The bible teaches that Jesus Christ came to redeem woman and men. (Gen.1:26-28; Gal.3:26-28; 1Pet.4:10-11)

  • SATAN: We believe the devil is a fallen being cast down from heaven because of his transgression. He is the enemy of Christians; and together with his demons seek to deceive, tempt, afflict, oppress and destroy humankind. The believer, however, has been given authority over them in the name of Jesus Christ. (Isa.14:12-17; Rev12:9; John 8:44; Luke 10:17-20; Acts 10:38; Eph.6:11-12; James 4:7)
