Our Profession of Faith
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, Maker of heavens and earth, of all that is seen and unseen
We believe in God our Father, His only begotten Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit who form the Trinitarian Godhead
We believe in Jesus Christ who is second in Trinity, who, for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven and by the power of the Holy Spirit was made incarnate through virgin Mary and was made man, and was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate. He suffered, crucified, died and was buried. On the third day He rose again from the dead, and according to the scriptures appeared to His disciples for forty days, ascended unto heaven and is seated on the right hand of the Father. And He shall come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead.
We believe in the whole Bible as the Word of God that contains 39 books in the Old Testament and 27 books in the New Testament.
We believe that men lost the glory of God and became sinners by the sin of Adam and that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
We believe in one Scriptural Baptism (immersion) for the remission of sins following repentance and salvation.
We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ who died, buried and ascended to heaven on the third day sent the Comforter who is the Holy Spirit of God. We believe the anointing of the Holy Spirit is given with the sign of speaking in tongues and also the gifts of the Spirit operating in us.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross not only for our sins, but also for our sickness and poverty, so that we enjoy divine health and prosperity through Him.
We believe that God gave some apostles and some prophets and some evangelists and some pastors and teachers for the edification of the body of Christ, which is the Church
We believe in the fundamental apostolic doctrine, that is:
We believe that the Church is the bride of Christ and the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with the shout and the voice of the archangel and the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ shall rise first and we that are alive shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.
We believe that He will come again with all the saints to judge the earth and we shall rule the earth with the Lord during the millennium.
Anchor of Faith Full Gospel Church believes that the entrance of God’s word in the mind of a child at an early age is an everlasting investment and divine treasure which will be a guiding compass as the child grows to adulthood. It is our goal to train all children from our church in Godly truth, and when they are older they will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6) We aim to use simple and effective ways to convey the gospel in our children’s ministry according them the opportunity to experience God at a young age and be grounded in the word of God.
Anchor of Faith Full Gospel Church aims to disciple and equip the youths with the word of God, filled with the Holy Spirit, and forged in the character of Christ living by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. It is our goal to educate the youth with practical and spiritual knowledge on how to overcome the challenges of today that hinder the youth from achieving their God given potential. We believe that the youth should “Speak out” for Jesus through worship, by their good deeds in our communities, through evangelism and by living as ambassadors of Christ to the nations. (1 Tim 4:12, Jeremiah 1:4-8, & Matthew 28:16-20)
It is our firm belief that Anchor of Faith Full Gospel Church Women Ministry has a mandate to mobilise women of every background and culture that will help incubate and give birth to the new wave of the Spirit of God in our generation and generations to come. We aim to raise women of excellence and virtue, in a Godly standard and equip them with the word of God and they will be guided by the Holy Spirit. These women will inspire other women in our communities, society and across the globe. We aim to inspire women that will stand in the gap on behalf of our broken society; empathise with other women going through life’s challenges and help to restore hope in their lives. We aim to equip women that will be spiritual leaders and help mentor other women of our generation into their God given destiny. As Esther risked all to save her generation, the women at Anchor of Faith Full Gospel Church will stop at nothing until the Kingdom of God is established on earth. Esther 8:1-17

Video Camera Operator
The camera operator works behind the cameras during services and acts as the eyes of the director. The director will communicate over headphones as to what he or she wants the camera to be doing. At this time, we have 2 Panasonic High-Definition professional cameras.
The director is in charge of recording the worship service. He or she instructs the camera operators over headphones and chooses which camera will be recorded or sent to the screens during the service. This is done by watching monitors for each camera in the control room and using the ‘switcher’ to choose the camera wanted at the time.
You will control the volume levels for all mics and instruments used on the stage mixed in the media booth or video control room.
Located in the media booth, you will work on a computer and change lyrics, announcements etc. that are projected on the projection screens. Lighting Control – Located in the worship area in the media booth, you will control stage and house lighting.
You can join the web team as a contributor to content by using your writing, editing or photography skills. We are using a “content management system” or “dashboard” that allows us to add content to the site without the need for coding or programming skills.

We need pictures of church life, services and events taken on a regular basis. Graphic Designer – If you have a computer and are familiar with desktop publishing software like InDesign, Photoshop Elements or others that are similar for layout and image creation there are many ways your skills can help.
