We believe

  • In One God, Maker of heaven and earth, manifested in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • In the Person of the Holy Spirit who empowers and fills all believers in Jesus Christ who desire His presence.
  • That Jesus Christ, born of a virgin, was crucified, died, was buried, raised on the third day, and lives eternally as Saviour on behalf of all who come to Him. The fullness of the Godhead dwells within Jesus Christ. He is fully God and fully Man. Jesus Christ has been given all authority in the heavens and in the earth. He is King of kings and Lord of lords. He is God over all gods. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life and no man comes to the Father except through Him. The name of Jesus Christ is the only name by which man can be saved.
  • That God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ (Acts 3:19-21; Rom 10:9-10; 1 Cor 6:9-11).
  • That God loves all with an everlasting love and embraces all people from every tongue, every tribe and every nation.
  • That the wonderful news of God’s love needs to be shared with all people and is a priority on God’s heart.
  • The Scriptures to be the holy and inspired Word of God.
  • That every person must be afforded compassion, dignity, love, kindness, and respect regardless of gender, ethnicity, age, beliefs, or economic status (Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31). Hateful and harassing behaviour or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture or the values of WIMA.
  • That God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God (Gen 1:26-27).
  • That the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture (Gen 2:18-25). We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other (1 Cor 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb 13:4). We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.
  • That because God has ordained marriage and defined it as the covenant relationship between a man, a woman, and Himself, WIMA will only recognize marriages between a biological man and a biological woman. Further, the pastors, ministers, clergy and staff of the organisation shall only solemnize marriages between one man and one woman.
  • That any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, fornication, homosexual behaviour, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, and use of pornography) is sinful and offensive to God (Matt 15:18-20; 1 Cor 6:9-10).
