What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

None of us are perfect but the God we follow is and the grace he shows us, we strive to show one another.
The following are the core beliefs of The House - Home Church based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.


The Scripture of the Old and New Testament were given by inspiration of God and are the only sufficient, certain, and authoritative rule of all saving knowledge, faith, and obedience.
(2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21)


There is one God, the Maker, Preserver and Ruler of all things, having in and of Himself, all perfections, and being infinite in them all; and to Him all creatures owe the highest love, reverence, and obedience.
(Deuteronomy 6:4; 1 Corinthians 8:4-6; 1 Timothy 1:17)


God is revealed to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit each with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence or being.
(Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14)


God from eternity decrees or permits all things that come to pass and perpetually upholds, directs and governs all creatures and all events; yet so as not in any way to be the author or approver of sin nor to destroy the free will and responsibility of intelligent creatures.
(Hebrews 1:3; Matthew 10:31-33; Proverbs 16:33)


God originally created man in his own image, and free from sin (an immoral act against God); but, through the temptation by Satan, he broke the command of God, and fell from his original holiness and righteousness. Therefore mankind’s nature became corrupt, opposed to God and his law and are capable of moral action, becoming actual offenders of God.
(Genesis 1:27; Genesis 3:4-7; Romans 5:12-21; Ephesians 2:1-3)


Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God, is the divinely appointed mediator between God and man. Having taken on human nature, yet without sin, He perfectly fulfilled the law; suffered and died upon the cross for the salvation of sinners. He was buried, and rose again from the dead on the third day, and ascended to the Father, at whose right hand He lives forever to intercede for His people. Jesus is the only mediator, the Prophet, Priest and King of the Church, and sovereign over all the universe.
(Matthew 3:17; 1 Corinthians 15:3-7; 1 Timothy 2:5; Romans 5:6-11; Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 1:3)


Regeneration is a change of heart, brought about by the Holy Spirit (through God’s free & special grace) who gives life to those who are dead to sin enlightening their minds spiritually to understand the Bible, and renewing their whole nature, so that they love and practice holiness.
(John 3:1-8; Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 1:3)


Repentance is the grace of God, where a person being by the Holy Spirit makes sense of the evil of our sin, and humbles himself for it with God given sorrow with a purpose to walk before God so as to please God in all things.
(Mark 1:15; Acts 20:21; 2 Corinthians 7:9)


Saving faith is the belief, on God’s authority and whatever is revealed in His Word concerning Christ, accepting and resting upon Him alone for justification and eternal life. It is worked out in the heart by the Holy Spirit, and is accompanied by all other saving graces, and leads to a life of holiness.
(John 1:12, John 5:24; Ephesians 2:8-9)


Justification is God’s gracious and full acquittal of sinners, who believe in Christ, from all sin, through the satisfaction that Christ has made; not for anything worked out in them or done by them; but on account of the obedience and satisfaction of Christ, then receiving and resting on Him and His righteousness by faith.
(Romans 3:23-24; Romans 5:1-2, 18-19; 2 Corinthians 5:21)


Those who have been regenerated are also sanctified by God’s word and Spirit dwelling in them.
This sanctification is progressive through the supply of Divine strength, which all Saints seek to obtain, pressing after a heavenly life in heartfelt obedience to all Christ’s commands.
(John 17:17; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; Hebrews 12:14)


Those whom God has accepted and sanctified by His Spirit, will never totally nor finally fall away from the state of grace but will certainly persevere to the end; and though they may fall through neglect or temptation, into sin, whereby they grieve God’s Spirit, impair their graces and comforts, bring shame upon the Church and temporary judgements upon themselves, yet they will be renewed again by repentance and kept by the power of God through faith till salvation.
(John 10:28-29; 1 John 2:19; Romans 8:30)


The Lord Jesus is the head of the Church, which is made up of all His true disciples, and in Him is invested supremely all power for its government. According to His commandment, Christians are to gather together into local churches; and to each of these churches he has given authority for administering that order, discipline and worship which he has appointed. The officers of the church are Elders and Deacons.
(Colossians 1:18; Matthew 16:18; Matthew 18:15-18; 1 Timothy 3:1-15; 1 Peter 5:1-4)


Believers Baptism is ordained by Jesus, obligatory upon every believer, where he/she is immersed in water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as a sign of his fellowship with the death and resurrection of Christ, of remission of sins and giving themselves up to God, to live and walk in a newness of life.
(Matthew 28:19-20; Romans 6:3-5; Acts 8:38-39)

Infant baptism in Scripture teaches that baptism has replaced circumcision, a Hebrew rite that marked the covenant between God and God’s people. Both infants and Hebrew converts were circumcised. Baptism of infants is not for salvation but covenantal displaying a relationship between God and His people.
(Acts 16:33; Colossians 2:11-12, 1 Corinthians 1:14)


Communion is a decree of Jesus Christ, to be administered with the elements of bread and the fruit of the vine, and to be observed by his Church till he comes again. It is in no sense a sacrifice, but is designed to commemorate His death, to confirm the faith and to be a bond, pledge and renewal of their communion with Him, and unify their church fellowship.
(Matthew 26:26-27; 1 Corinthians 10:16-17; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)


The bodies of men and women after death return to dust, but their spirits return to God- the righteous to rest with Him; the wicked to be reserved under darkness to the judgment. At the last day the bodies of all the death, both just and unjust,
will be raised.
(1 Cor. 15; Jn. 5:28, 29; Phil. 3:21)


God has appointed a day, where He will judge the world by Jesus Christ, when everyone shall receive according to their deeds; the wicked will go to everlasting punishment; the righteous (by God's grace alone through faith), into everlasting life.
(Mt. 25:31-46; 1 Cor. 15:35-58; 2 Cor. 5:10)
