In God the Father, Maker of all things,
Who is no respecter of persons. We believe in Jesus Christ, His
only begotten Son, Who was uniquely anointed to manifest God and

That Jesus Christ was essentially African in origin. While Abraham,
the father was located in Asia, after hundreds of years in Egypt,
Northern Africa – and Canaan – during which obvious

That in His redemptive work, Jesus, employing different methods,
identified with and focused His ministry primarily toward the
poor, sick, powerless and rejected.

in direct conflict with systems and rules of this world.
That God the Father, and Jesus Christ, through the Holy Spirit
call, fill, and send human beings of every nationality, gender,
class, and age to continue the ministry of Jesus Christ.
That Jesus Christ will come again – as He promised. While
it is not absolutely clear what this means, we believe that when
Jesus returns, there will be a dramatic supernatural in-break
into history; at that point, a new heaven and a new earth will
begin in which peace and righteousness will flourish.
That scientific discovery, space exploration and political and
economic revolutions are all part of the divine plan in which
God, through Jesus Christ, is at work moving all things toward
