SECTION 1:    THE NAME OF THE CHURCH, STATEMENT OF OUR FAITH AND DOCTRINE OF THE CHURCH

  1. The Name of Churches/Branches  under the Stewardship of Pastor OB Magagula

The Name of the Branches shall be “Holiness Union Church WhiteHazyNsikazi Branches”

  1. The Statement of our Faith and Doctrine of the WhiteHazyNsikazi Branches
  • We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, that is inert in the original manuscripts and preached by God in its verbal, plenary inspiration, and that is a divinely authoritative standard for every age and every life (2Tim.3:16; 2Kings 17:13-14; Neh.9:30; Mt.22;43-44; 1 COR.2:13; Heb.1: 1-2; 1Pet.1: 10-13; 2Pet.1: 20-21)
  • We believe that the Godhead exists eternally in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and that these are one God. God is absolute and sole creator of the universe and that the creation was by a divine feat, not through evolutionary process. God by sovereignty choice and out of love for men, sent Christ into the world to save sinners (Deut.6: 4; Mt 28: 19; 2Cor .13; Eph 1: 31-33, Rev. 1: 4-5.
  • We believe that Jesus in the fresh was both God and Man, that He was born of a virgin and that He lived a sinless life, in which that He taught and wrought might works, wonders and signs exactly as revealed in the four gospels. That He was crucified, died as a penalty for our sins, and was raised from death on the third day.  Later  he ascended to the Father’s right hand where He is the head of the Church and intercedes for the believers and whence He is coming again personally, bodily and visibly  (Mt.1: 20-23; Lk.1:35; mat 3: 16-17; Acts 10: 38; 1Pet. 1:2; 2Cor.1:21-22; Eph.1: 3-14; Ti.3: 4-6; Eph.2:22; Jn.20:21-22; Acts 7:55; Acts 5: 31-32.
  • We believe in Christ’s death, by His shed blood, the Lord Jesus made perfect sacrifice atonement for sin, redeeming us from the curses of the law by becoming a curse for us. Men are justified on the single and simple ground of the shed blood. Therefore such a gospel which its forgiveness of sins, its impartation of the new nature, its hope for eternal life, is entirely  apart from good works, baptism, church membership or man’s effort and is of pure grace (Heb. 9: 11-15; 10:8-14; Gal.3:10-14;4: 4-7; Eph.2: 8-9)
  • We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned and thereby incurred not only by physical death, but also spiritual death, by which is separation from God, and in consequence of the “FALL”, all human beings are born with sinful nature (Gen.1: 26-27; Rom. 3:9-12; Ps.14: 1-3; Gen. 6: 5-13; Eph. 2:1-3; Rom. 5: 12-14; 6:16-20; 2 Cor. 4: 4)
  • Therefore in the universality and heinousness of sin, and in the necessity of being saved by grace, and that Son-ship  with God is attained only be regeneration through the Holy Spirit, and faith in Jesus Christ alone (Rom.3:23; 1 COR.12: 12-13; Eph. 2:8-9; 4:,5)
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit proceeding from the Father and the Son, His personality, and the third person of the Triune Godhead, He is omnipresent and thus : Christ continues to be in each believer through the Holy Spirit; He is an ever  blessed object of our worship, love and praise, who shares the same divine nature as the Father and the on: that He came down onto the earth on the day of Pentecost, and in His office to convict the world in respect of sin, and of righteousness and of judgement, and   to indwell believers as their Teacher, Sanctifier and Comforter  (Jn.14: 16; Rom.8: 9; Gen.1:2; 2Sam.23: 2; Gal.4: 6; 1Pet.1:11; 1John.2:1; Acts 11:12; Gal.5:22;Is.61:1-3; Jn.4:23-24; Acts 2:1-4; Jn. 16:7-15.
  • We believe that God manifests Himself in all aspects of life through creation, Holy Scriptures and the supernatural gifts of the Holy Ghost that are presently and permanently operating decently and in order  (Rom.1: 20; John 1: 1-2; Ps.119: 89; 1Cor.12: 4-6; Eph.4: 11; 1 cor. 14:40.
  • We believe that all who receive Christ become joint-heirs with Christ, and at death their spirit depart to be with Christ in conscious blessedness and of the rapture their bodies will be raised to the likeness of the body of His Glory and dwell forever in His divine presence (Col.3:3; Jn. 11: 25-26; 1Jn.3:2; Rev. 2: 26-27)
  • We believe that the just and the unjust will resurrect, the judgement of the living and the dead, and the everlasting punishment of the lost (Mt.25: 31-34; 1Thes. 4:13-18; Rev.20:11-15)
  • We believe in the holy ordinances and that they should be given a central focus in the fellowship of believers (i.e. dedication of infants, baptism by immersion, Lord’s Supper, ordination and holy matrimony)
  • We believe in Christ’s great commission, saved men and women are called to serve the Lord to all parts of the entire world spreading the gospel by evangelising, baptising  and teaching all Christ’s doctrines. And this is the very centre of our mission work. In the gospel of Mark, all saved men and women either Ministers or Sitters in the Church are called to a personal witnessing of the good news and thus bringing them unto repentance, and that all Saints are called not by good works but unto good works through serving both God and others (Mt.28:16-20; Mk.16:15-16)

SECTION 2: THE AIMS AND OBJECTIVES OF THE CHURCH – HUC WHITEHAZYNSIKAZI

  • To glorify God: to promote Christians to reflect the light of the Son and bring glory to God, so that the Church will be brought to the fulfilment of her purpose in glorifying God (Rom. 15:6; Eph. 3:21). Essentially this glorying involves worship, which are man’s expressions towards God through his actions, attitudes, words and possessions. To promote and preserve the unity of the Church at all times, but never at the cost of any compromise of the truth. To maintain at all times activities of fellowship with believers, churches, and other Christian organizations, that shares our Christian values.
  • To equip believers:  according to Ephesians 4:11 the Church is to indoctrinate herself so that she may not only stand, but also move ahead to conquer new souls for the Kingdom. All our functions should keep in view the dynamic importance of the teaching (2 Timothy 2:2) that every believer should be in a learning group in a local church. Romans 12 exhort the Church to use the gift she has. Uninvolvement is biblical unacceptable therefore as a Church we must denounce it. Christianity is not a one man’s show: IT IS A TEAM EFFORT.
  • To maintain holiness: Christ gave Himself for the Church for the purpose of holiness maintenance. There is a purging that is performed chiefly through divine Chastening (John 15:2; Heb.21: 10). To promote a believer into performing a purging on his own life. To promote a Church towards a cleansing process that a church is biblically asked to (1Cor.5:6’7’13). The early Church practised church discipline, and the present church is not excused from the same duty. Divisions, heresies and immoralities are New Testament causes for discipline (See Eph.5: 1-8, Titus 3:3-11). To cultivate at trustworthiness and truthful church with which it will be said in the day of Christ’s return “His bride has made herself ready” (Rev 19:7).  To promote local churches to be as closed in approximation to the true church in its glory as possible.
  • To evangelize the World: the great commission in Mt. 28 charges the church not to “convert” the world, but to” evangelize” the world. We know that not all the world will receive Christ, but the Church duty is to proclaim Him. THIS IS THE CLIMAX OF OUR OBJECTIVES, the Church must realize that she is in the midst of the greatest challenge of her history. To promote mass media, advance transportation, means of communication and education to make evangelism possible for the world, in this generation than any previous generation in the history of the mankind. Since the World needs to be transformed, we need to enthuse the truly committed Christians to make a difference in the Church. Revolutions demand unwavering concern and if the world is to be transformed for Christ, God’s revelation is going to require more than a handful of well meaning people whom want to make their social contribution for Jesus.
  • To suffer if necessary: To promote Christians not to renounce suffering since the Apostle Peter said we are called for this purpose (1Peter 2:21). We are to proclaim the gospel in a world that hates Christ and all who belong to Him (Jn.15: 18-25), it is obvious that there will be the occasions of suffering. A CHURCH THAT IS SERIOUSLY AND HONESTLY DEMONSTRATING CHRIST WILL BE TESTED (2 Tim 3:12). However that is also the Church that will know the blessing and joy of the Lord (1Peter 4:12-14)
  • To await His return: To promote the Church to be watchful, steadfast, immovable and waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Since Christ Himself is building the Church (Mt 16: 18), He will also bring about its calumniation by the physically uniting of the body to the head. He will return for His Church (1Thes. 4:13-18).
  • Helping the Needy: To develop the believer’s sensitivity to the needs of others, a sympathetic understanding of people and their problems, and prepares the Church to their greatest contribution to human welfare.
