What we Believe
Durban Christian Centre is a church committed to proclaiming the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, locally and internationally in the power of the Holy Spirit. We meet regularly in Sunday celebrations, weekly LifeGroups, congregationals, prayer groups, bible study classes and home visits.
As we are committed to the worldwide proclamation of the gospel, we have the R.E.A.P vision, which aims to train and send men and women of God to raise up LifeGroups, to preach, teach, heal the sick, disciple and establish churches to influence communities and cities.
Durban Christian Centre is committed to be a “House of Prayer for all Nations”, a citywide multicultural church which meets in LifeGroups, congregationals and celebrations. Committed to the integrity of God’s Word and in submission to the leading of the Holy Spirit, we are constantly striving for excellence in ministry.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe the Bible is the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17)
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy
Spirit. (1 John 5:6-8)
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His victorious 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. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4, 1 Peter 2:18-24, John 3:16)
We believe that for salvation of the lost and the sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. (Romans 3:21-30, Galatians 4:4-7)
We believe in the baptism and the operation of the gifts of the Spirit for today.
(1 Corinthians 12)
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life; and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
(John 5:24, 28 & 29)
We believe that healing from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privilege of all believers. (Isaiah 53:4, Matthew 8:16-17, Mark 16:18, John 5:6-14)
We believe in the imminent return of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Revelation 22:20, John 14:3)
God instituted marriage between a man and a woman designing it for life. He calls and appoints each family member within the sanctity of marriage to fulfil their specific God-given destiny. God is for families, having provided “a lamb for a household” Thus, if God can save an individual, He can save families too.
Gen 12:3, Ps 128:3, Eph 5:25 - 32
When we worship God we express our heartfelt love, adoration and faith in Him. This may be through shouts of joy, singing, clapping, dancing or at times weeping. We believe that God accepts our worship when given in sincerity. God seeks those who worship Him in spirit and truth.
Ps 63:4, 1Tim2:8, Ps 149:3, 1Co14:15-16
DCC is a house of prayer for all nations. We firmly believe that absolutely nothing happens except through prayer and that prayer is the vehicle through which the plans and purposes of God are established.
James 5:16, Col 4:12, Acts 12:5
We believe the Bible is the infallible, undeniable, irrevocable word of the living God. It is God-breathed (inspired by God) and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.
2 Timothy 3:16
HOLYSPIRIT-SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES
We believe that God is a supernatural, miracle-working God. The Holy Spirit dwells upon and within believers, leading us into all truth and that what He did in the old and new Testament, He is still able to do today.
Mt 3:11, John 14:26, Acts 1:8, Acts 2:4, 1 Cor 12
We encourage you to find a lifegroup in your area. In a lifegroup you will be accepted for who you are, inspired to grow and achieve incredible things through Christ and be everything He has created you to be.
Acts 2:42, Acts 2:46
The church, the Universal body of Christ, consists of born again believers without denominational barriers, being nurtured and equipped for the work of the ministry, fulfilling the great commission in each local church led by His Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers. Our Lord Jesus will soon return for His glorious, victorious church, His bride without spot or blemish.
Mt 16:18; Mk 16:15; Eph 4:11-16; Eph 5:27
Salvation, God’s free gift of grace is promised to all who will believe. We are called to be witnesses, to preach the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins.
Eph 2:8-10; Jn 1:12; Jn 3:16; I Pe 1:18-19
