WHAT AFLAME BELIEVE
- They believe in God who created the universe and all the living and non-living matters in it. (Psalm 8)
They believe that humanity is created in the image and likeness of God as male and female to have mutual respect and love to each other within the community, irrespective of class, creed, culture, colour differences. Have great care for nature and all creations living and non-living to sustain the ecological purity and balance. (Genesis 1:27)
- They believe that the childhood and teen years are God's most blessed gift to the human race, to expect great things from God and to attempt great things for God and humanity. (1 Timothy 4:12)
- They believe that the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God, without error in the original documents, fully trustworthy, and the final authority in all matters of Christian faith and life. (2 Timothy 3:16)
- They recognize the significance of the young believers in creating new friendships and mutual understanding for preparing ourselves to propagate and practice the self-negating life of Jesus Christ, Son of God for the salvation of all men and women all over the world. (Hebrews 10:24-25)
- They commit themselves to be led by the Holy Spirit in transforming the world from evil to good, dark to light, death to life, violence to peace, hatred to love, and fear to hope. (Galatians 5:18-23)
The Aflame family usually hold their meetings each Sunday afternoon during school term. They usually meet at Parklands Baptist Church from 2-5pm, this is usually after the third service. They meet during school term simply because the main target group they reach out to are the children and high school age.
