Our Statement of Faith

There are many aspects to the Christian walk of life. Below, we have listed the core beliefs of our ministry. Click each topic to read a little bit more about our viewpoints on these main aspects of the Christian faith.

The Holy Scriptures
The Bible teaches that there is only one true, ever living, eternal God, infinite in power, holy in nature, and possessing absolute, invisible deity.
Christian Life & Duty
The ordained officers of the Church are apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, teacher, elders, and deacons and all of these officers shall function under the covering of a local church and all elders and deacons are under the direction of the five-fold ministry listed in Ephesians 4:11.
The Sacraments
The two ordinances of the Church are water baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Water baptism by immersion in water in the name of the Trinity is a mark of recognition with Jesus Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. The Lord’s Supper is a cenotaph of the death, resurrection, and second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Economic Prosperity
The Children of God must and ought to prosper and use wealth as an instrument of blessing and as a tool for the expansion of the Gospel. (3 John 2)

The Lord Jesus Christ
The Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, was crucified, died, was buried, was resurrected, ascended into heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father and is true God and true man.
Members
Each believer is a priest of the Lord and has direct access to the Father through the Lord Jesus Christ. Each person must believe for himself, must be baptized for himself, obey for himself, and answer to his Creator for himself
Divine Health
The receiving and the baptism of the Holy Spirit, with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. (3 John 2, Act 9:34)
Marriage
The Bible teaches that marriage is a holy covenant ordained by God as a united entity between one man and one woman (Gen.1: 27-28, 2:23-24)

Us

Established in February 2005 by Apostle Charles Gwira, True Vine Ministries (TVM) has been a place of love, healing and the prophetic for over a decade. Apostle Charles is a man who truly cares for the welfare of the sheep in his care. We are a ministry that believes strongly in prayer, the prophetic as well as helping our fellow man, just as Jesus did.

Him

We believe in the triune being of God: that He is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We believe that the only way to salvation, and to come to the Father, is through Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Believing in Him confessing your sins and accepting Him as Lord and Saviour of your life is the only road to salvation.
