What We Believe

Deliverance Church Uganda upholds the basic tenets of the Christian faith as contained in the Holy Bible and in particular:-

  1. We believe in one God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (The Trinity) the Creator of all things.
  2. We believe in the divine inspiration and entire trustworthiness of the Holy Scriptures contained in the Holy Bible as originally given and their supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct 2 Timothy 3:16-17.
  3. We believe that the Son of God Jesus Christ became incarnate, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, was born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man.

  5. We believe in redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only through personal faith in Christ Jesus, the incarnate Son of God whose blood was shed for the remission of sins. This is the new birth Jesus talks about in John 1:2-13 and 3:5-7.
