Statement of Faith
Statement of Faith
We believe that the Holy Scriptures are inspired and infallible in the original writings and have final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
We believe in the One God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is truly God and Man, sinlessly perfect, born of the virgin Mary. He died for our sins, was buried and rose again bodily from the dead. He was ascended into Heaven where He intercedes as our Great High Priest.
We believe that everyone has sinned and is separated from God, but can be brought into fellowship with God through faith in Jesus Christ and that each believer possesses the security of eternal life.
We believe that each person at conversion is indwelt and sealed by the Holy Spirit, who enables the believer to live a godly life.
We believe that each believer becomes a member of the true Church of Jesus Christ and they should fellowship with the local expression of that Church.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.
We believe in the personal and imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ for the dead and living, "In Christ."
We welcome all "Born Again" believers who are living a godly life to our fellowship.
We baptize believers by immersion as commanded by the Lord. . We celebrate the Lord's Supper on the first day of the week in worship and remembrance of our risen Saviour.
We freely and openly preach the Gospel of the Grace of God.
We meet together as a body of believers for fellowship, prayer, worship and teaching to build up and edify the saints.
We recognise in our gatherings the Lordship of Christ, the liberty of the Holy Spirit, the priesthood of all believers and the diversity of gifts as taught in the New Testament.
We encourage the Lord's people to support the work of the local church and the spread of the Gospel through freewill offerings.
We believe the direction of the Assembly is given into the hands of godly men called, "Elders" who have the responsibility and authority to shepherd and care for those whom the Lord adds to His Church.
