Are you part of a denomination?
No. We are an independent body of believers in Jesus Christ. We are independent of other churches and denominations, though we work hand-in-hand with all individuals and organizations who obey the truth of God’s word in word and in deed. [[We do not style ourselves in the mould of neither do we attach to ourselves any appellate like orthodox, mainline, Pentecostal, evangelical, charismatics, puritan and such names. We do hold believe that agrees with the core believe of the reformers: Bible alone the authority in the life of the believer, we are saved by faith alone through the grace of God, Jesus Christ alone is the Saviour and Lord, and in all things, to God alone be the glory.
In summary we believe without any reservation what the infallible Word of God teaches that:
- The Scripture Alone is the Standard for Christian living and the final authority in all matters concerning faith and practice by the Christian,
- Everything should and must be done For the Glory of God Alone,
- That it is: By Jesus Christ’s Work Alone Are We Saved,
- Salvation Is By Grace Alone and
- Justification Is By Faith Alone.
If I already belong to a church, can I also become a member of your church? While we will welcome anyone to be part of us, it is our believe that each Christian should commit to the membership of only one local church and contribute to the vision and work of Christ in that local church.
We do not encourage people moving about from one church to another like people flick through channels on the TV. Those who wander round churches with no root anywhere eventually dry-up and fall away. This is not surprising because wanderers wither.
However we recognise that there may be events like seminars and workshops that help to equip believers to better live a life pleasing to our Lord. Many such events may also be organised by a group of local churches working together. We appreciate such events and do encourage believers to attend them.
As a member of your church, will I be able to serve as a volunteer?
Yes. You will be able to serve as a volunteer. This may require some training or updating of knowledge and skills. And in some cases CRB check may be required.
Who are your sponsors who provide your funding?
We are not sponsored or funded by any individual, group or organisation. However our funds come from many people who voluntarily make even the smallest of donations. It is the willingness of such cheerful givers that is enabling Habitation of Mercy Ministries to continue to reach out to the world with the life-saving and transforming gospel of Jesus Christ.
