    Confession of Faith

    I believe in God, the Almighty, Father, Creator
    of heavens and earth,
    and in Jesus Christ his only-begotten Son, our Lord,
    conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary,
    who under Pontius Pilate suffered and was crucified,
    who descended into hell, died and was buried
    and on the third day according to the Scriptures rose
    from the dead,
    who ascended to heaven and sits on the right hand of
    the power of God,
    hence He shall come to judge the living and the dead,
    I believe in the Holy Spirit;
    I believe one Christian Church of the elect,
    the holy communion of believers,
    the forgiveness of sin, the everlasting life and the resurrection,
    in the glorified body of flesh.

    I believe the Scriptures, the true, only and closed canon
    of authority for and in the faith, doctrine and living.
    God speaks in the Scriptures
    through his Spirit in the Congregation
    of the Son in Whom we have life.

    The Election of God :
    The reconciliation and justification in Jesus Christ of those
    according to God’s Eternal Predestination and Purpose
    in Covenant of Grace elected and
    in the Baptism of Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit
    sealed and attested in regeneration and sanctification
    of repentance and conversion, of redemption from sin, and
    of growth and perseverance in faith.

    The Lord’s Supper of bread, wine and the washing of feet,
    as through faith partaking
    of Jesus Christ, of his body and of his blood,
    his Salvation proclaiming and Return expecting.

    The Lord’s Day
    the Sabbath of the Lord thy God,
    for God concerning the Seventh Day thus spoke,
    and God on the Seventh Day from all his works rested
    according to the working of the exceeding greatness
    of his mighty power which He wrought in Christ
    when He raised Him from the dead
    and finished all his works He had made
    to reign, the King, for ever and ever.

    Belydenis van die Wese, die Woord, die Wil, die Doop,
    die Maaltyd en die Dag van die Here


    Ek glo in God, die Almagtige, Vader, Skepper
    van hemel en aarde,
    en in Jesus Christus sy eniggebore Seun, ons Here,
    van die Heilige Gees ontvang en uit die maagd Maria gebore,
    wat onder Pontius Pilatus gely het en gekruisig was,
    wat neergedaal het na die hel, gesterf het en begrawe is
    en op die derde dag volgens die Skrifte opgestaan het
    uit die dode,
    wat opgevaar het na die hemel en sit aan die regterhand van die krag van God,
    vanwaar Hy sal kom om die lewende en die dode te oordeel,
    ek glo in die Heilige Gees;
    ek glo een Christelike Kerk van uitverkorenes,
    die heilige gemeenskap van gelowiges,
    die vergifnis van sonde, die ewige lewe en die opstanding,
    in die verheerlikte liggaam van vlees.

    ek glo die Skrifte, die waaragtige, enige en afgeslote kanon
    van gesag vir en in die geloof, leer en lewe.
    God spreek in die Skrifte
    deur sy Gees in die Gemeente
    van die Seun in Wie ons die lewe het.

    Die Uitverkiesing van God :
    Die versoening en regverdiging in Jesus Christus van hulle
    volgens die ewigeVoorbeskikking en Doel van God
    in Genadeverbond uitverkies en
    in die Doop van Jesus Christus deur die Heilige Gees
    beseël en betuig in wedergeboorte en heiligmaking
    van berou en bekering, van verlossing van sonde, en
    van opwassing en volharding in geloof.

    Die Maaltyd van die Here van brood, wyn en voetewassing
    as deur die geloof deelagtig
    aan Jesus Christus, sy liggaam en sy bloed,
    sy Verlossing verkondigend en Wederkoms verwagtend.

    Die Dag van die Here
    die Sabbat van die Here jou God,
    want God het van die Sewende Dag aldus gespreek,
    en God het op die Sewende Dag van al sy werke gerus
    na die werking van die uitnemende grootheid
    van die krag van sy sterkte wat Hy volbring het in Christus
    toe Hy Hom uit die dode opgewek het
    en al sy werke wat Hy gemaak het, voltooi het
    om te heers, Koning, vir ewig en ewig.

      12, Ons bely, betreur, bestry, bestraf en verwerp die Kerk se ontkenning, miskenning en misbruik van die Bybel as
      die Woord en openbaring van God se wil vir die Volk,
      sy volhardende misbruik van eie profetiese amp en
      onberouvolle versmading van eie wordingsgeskiedenis,
      in diens en tot diens van die afgodery
      van Sondagsheiliging en Sabbatsveragting.

        Sabbaths’ Feast of Christ Home Assemblies Reformed Protestant Faith

        To joy in the Fellowship of Christians persuaded by God of the sanctity of the Seventh Day Sabbath of the LORD your God for to be the Lord Jesus’ Day of Worship-Rest.
        The urgency of Sabbaths’ celebration for the Christian Faith and Church, springs from the knowledge of the energy of God’s operation in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Ephesians 1:17-23.

        The Sabbath, its engagement and enjoyment, are grounded in Divine Election and Predestination and realised in the “Gospel of God concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord”, whom God the Father “Declared the Son of God with Power according to the Spirit of Holiness by resurrection from the dead:— by Whom we have received Grace for the obedience of the Faith for His Name among all nations, among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ, to the end ye may be established and comforted by the mutual faith in the Gospel of His Son.” Romans 1:1...12.

        Therefore we remember and celebrate “The Lord’s Day”, Sabbaths’ Eating and Drinking of the Lord’s Feast, holding to the Head nourishment being ministered, growing with the growth of God, proclaiming Jesus Christ Raised from the dead. (Col2:12-19)



        “Where two or three are gathered together
        in My Name, there I am in the midst of them.”
        We are not a ‘Church’ – new, or, another!
        We do not take money or favours!
        We don’t have nor desire an ‘earthly tabernacle’ to worship!
        We do not want ‘growth’ in numbers!
        We do not ‘count the nation’ or record attendance!
        We do not baptise!
        We do not convert!
        We are few, and will stay few.
        We believe because God had given us faith first.
        We love because God first loved us.
        We love the Fellowship of Christ, and in Christ.
        We love the Name of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
        We love the fear of God and His Word Proclaimed.
        We love the pure Gospel of God’s free Grace.
        We love the knowledge and increase in the knowledge of Christ.
        We are not ashamed of, nor let ourselves be judged with regard to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. (Ro1:16, Col2:16)
        Therefore we remember and celebrate “The Lord’s Day” Sabbaths’ Eating and Drinking of the Lord’s Feast, holding to the Head nourishment being ministered, growing with the growth of God, proclaiming Jesus Christ Raised from the dead. (Col2:12-19)
        “For this cause we do not cease to pray that ye might be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.” (Col1:9)
        ‘Singing in our heart to the Lord’, we ‘sing with the spirit and with understanding’, ‘speaking to ourselves in Psalms’. (Col3:16, 1Cor14:15, Eph5:9,19)
        We abhor self-righteousness or ‘legalism’.
        We abhor self-satisfaction or complacency.
        We abhor boasting or distinction of men.
