Emmanuel Church was planted in the 1960’s. We are part of the Apostolic Faith Mission of Namibia, which is a denomination of Pentecostal churches.
We, like the rest of the AFM Churches, believe the following:
God … Eternal and Almighty, Triune (Father, Son and Holy Spirit), Creator, Saviour, Ruler and Judge.
Jesus Christ … who is God the Son, who is fully God and fully man, who lived a sinless life, was crucified, buried, resurrected, ascended and coming again.
The Holy Spirit … who is true God and proceeds from the Father and the Son. He is a real person and his work is as executive of the Godhead. He reveals Himself in both spiritual gifts and fruit.
The Bible … as inspired by God and written by men. It is the final authority for all matters of faith and practice.
The Creation … of the heavens and the earth includes both the physical and the spirit worlds. All creation is by Jesus and for Jesus.
Humanity … created in the image of God, both male and female.
The Sin and Salvation of mankind …
We believe that all have sinned and are in need of salvation. Salvation is a gift given by the grace of God and received by faith in Christ’s atoning work.
The Church … which comprises of all born again believers. Its ministry is conducted by all its members as believer-priests. Its mission is conducted in the world.
The Last Things … including death and eternal judgment, the resurrection and eternal life, the Second Coming of Christ, the Millennium and the creation of a new heaven and a new earth.
