QU: Why does this website have a “statement of faith”?
ANS: Because as our name states, we are Christians and want to be upfront with our beliefs so that people can make an informed decision as to whether they want to be aligned with our values and utilise our services. Those who do not hold to these beliefs are encouraged to seek a different job website or platform that is more aligned with their beliefs and values.
Statement of Faith
The Bible was written by God, through man and is without error in the original writings.
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness…” 2 Tim 3:16
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The great “I am”. There is one God. He is all-powerful, all-knowing and all-merciful. We were created by Him, for Him. God was not created; He dwells outside the realm of time and has always been there. He is 3 distinct persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (also known as the Trinity / 3-in-one).
Salvation is only found through Jesus and His sacrifice. Eternal life is only by GRACE, through faith and not by works.
To be saved, you must believe in Jesus Christ ALONE; Salvation is NOT found in a religion or good works, but in the sacrifice of the Lord JESUS CHRIST!
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him will not perish, but have everlasting life”. (John 3:16)
Jesus gave His life as a sacrifice to atone (pay the price for) our punishment; he paid our fine, the price for our sins by dying on a cruel rugged cross at the hands of the people He created. He shed His life’s blood that we might live.
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”(Romans 5:8)
“This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.”(1st Timothy 1:15)

We believe that all of mankind, male and female are sinners. We need regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that the Church, the body of Christ, consists only of those who are born again, who are baptised by the Holy Spirit into Christ at the time of regeneration, for whom He now makes intercession in heaven and for whom He will come again.
We believe that Jesus Christ will return again soon.
We believe that Christ commanded the Church to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every person, baptising and teaching those who believe.
