Statement of Faith

Deity of Jesus Christ

The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God who shares in the deity of God. He is also truly man who was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died on the cross as a sacrifice for sin and arose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and is now at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Advocate. (Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31, 35; John 3:16; 1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21).

Original Sin and Fall of Man

Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost. Only through the shed blood of Jesus Christ and by His resurrection can man have grounds for justification and salvation. This salvation and spiritual life are obtained by regeneration through the work of the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1-3; Romans 3:23-26; Genesis 1:26-31, Genesis 3:1-7; Psalm 51:5; Ecclesiastes 7:29; John 6:44; Romans 5:12-21; 1 Corinthians 2:14).

Salvation by Faith

Man’s salvation and redemption (a free gift of grace from God) can only be obtained by exercising faith, not by works, and by the finished redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Acts 16:31; Hebrews 10:39; Mark 16:16; Romans 10:9, 11:20; John 3:16).

The New Man in Christ

If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature (creation) in the inward man. We are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus. We are partakers of His divine nature. (2 Corinthians 5:17, Ephesians 2:10, and 2 Peter 1:4).

Church - The Body of Christ

The true Church is the composition of all those who have been born again. Through the new birth, believers are united together as the Body of Christ. Jesus Christ is the Lord and Head of the Church. (Ephesians 1:22-23; 1 Corinthians 12:12-31; Romans 12:4-5; Colossians 1:18).

The Holy Spirit

We believe the Scriptures ascribe to the Holy Spirit the acts and attributes of an intelligent being, and that the works of God such as creation, inspiration, giving of life, and sanctification are also ascribed to the Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:2; Job 33:4; Mark 3:29; John 16:8, 13; Acts 7:51, 10:19, 13:2, 13:4, 16:6; 1 Corinthians 2:11, 6:11, 12; Ephesians 4:30; 1 Peter 3:18; 2 Peter 1:21).

We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by who’s indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life (Romans 8:5; Philippians 2:12, 13; 1 Thessalonians 4:3; 1 John 2:29).

We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is given to believers who ask for it (Joel 2:28; Acts 2:4, Acts 1:4-5, 8; Acts 2:38-39; Matthew 3:11; Acts 18:1-6).

Water Baptism

All who believe in Jesus Christ as their Saviour and have been born again are commanded to be immersed in water as a declaration that they identify with the death of Christ and have been raised with Him in newness of life. (Mark 16:16; 1 Peter 3:21, Acts 22:16; Colossians 2:12; Galatians 3:27; Matthew 28:19-20).

Lord's Supper

A symbolic expression of our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ as well as a memorial of His suffering, death, and prophecy of His Second Coming. (1 Corinthians 11:23-31; Luke 22:19-20; Matthew 26:26-28).

The Blessed Hope

The blessed hope of the Church is the resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation (catching away to heaven) together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord. (1Thessalonians 4:16-17, Romans 11:27, Titus 2:13).

The Final Judgement

There will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Whosoever’s name is not found written in the Book of Life will be cast into the lake of fire, which is the second death. (Matthew 25:46, Mark 9:43-48, Revelation 19:20; 20:11-15; 21:8).

Social Justice

At Kingdom House we believe strongly that Jesus and the bible model love and action towards those who are marginalized in society. We consider ourselves to be a ‘Balanced Church’, meaning we have 5 focuses – Evangelism, Worship, Fellowship, Discipleship and (Social Conscious) Ministry. In the area of social justice, Kingdom House is a forerunner in the nation as we established a multi-denominational Christian coalition across Canada called CCJM – Canadian Christians for Justice and Mercy. CCJM works to bring change in areas and systems of inequality and injustice in our communities and nation through a Christian perspective and practical action.
