Bastion Of Divine Truth
On The Mountain,

Avishua Ministries is run under the auspices of married couple Pastors Riaan and Lynette Engelbrecht. It is a ministry that deals strongly with the prophetic, with teaching, evangelism, counselling and deliverance. It is our heart's desire and passion to see people delivered in spirit, soul and body, and then discipled to walk in God's Spirit and Truth. We are based in Kempton Park.
We endeavour to teach and preach the Truth as taught by the Lord, not merely by man or by a congregation. It is after all the Truth of the Lord that sets us free. The reality of the deceptions and strategies of the world and the devil needs to be exposed, for they cause people to become spiritually enslaved. The devil has many schemes - be it the occult to idolatry to addictions - to ensnare people from walking in the Glory of God.
IN ESSENCE, WE BELIEVE THE FOLLOWING:
The Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments in their original language, is the fully inspired and only infallible Word of God. We accept it as the supreme and final authority in all matters of doctrine, faith and life.
There is only one God, who is self-revealed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These are the three eternal distinctions in one divine being.
The deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth as the only begotten Son of God, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of God the Father, His personal future return to reign in power and glory.
Man was created good and upright in the image of God. But man, by voluntary transgression, fell,and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ the Son of God. The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance toward God and faith in the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ on Calvary. Man is justified by grace alone and this through faith.
They who receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour by faith, are born again by the Holy Spirit and become Children and heirs of God.
The New Birth is absolutely essential for personal salvation and eternal life.
The sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a life of righteousness and true holiness. The baptism of the Holy Spirit with the speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives them utterance and the operation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit for the edification of the body of Christ.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
AVISHUA MINISTRIES BELIEVES IN GOD THE FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT. GOD IS ONE BUT IS REPRESENTED BY THE TRINITY. WE BELIEVE THE LORD JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS FOR OUR SINS, DEFEATED THE WORK OF THE DEVIL AND WILL RETURN SOON FOR HIS BRIDE. WE BELIEVE IN THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND THE WORK OF THE SPIRIT CONTINUES TO PREPARE THE BRIDE TO GROW IN THE FULLNESS OF THE LORD IN PREPARATION FOR THE COMING OF THE LORD. WE BELIEVE IN HEAVEN AND HELL, IN ANGELS AND DEMONS AND THAT A SPIRITUAL WAR WAGES AS CONFIRMED BY PAUL IN EPHESIANS 6. WE BELIEVE GOD IS SUPERNATURAL AND SHOULD BE SERVED IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH. IT IS OUR MISSION AND OUR VISION TO SEE PEOPLE SET FREE FROM THE BONDS OF THIS WORLD AND THE DEVIL IN SPIRIT, SOUL AND FLESH SO THAT MAY SERVE THE LORD TO HIS GLORY.
