What We Believe

  1. In the Divine Inspiration, authority and sufficiency of the Holy Scriptures (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21)
  2. That there is one God who eternally exists in three persons; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19, John 1:1-3, Genesis 1:1-3, Proverbs 8:22-31, John 14:25-26)
  3. That the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, came into the world, conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He was God manifest in human flesh (Matthew 1:21,23, 1 Timothy 3:16)
  4. That the death of the Lord Jesus Christ was an acceptable sacrifice to God and therefore a propitiation fir the remission of sins. (Romans 3:25, 4:25, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Hebrews 9:24-28, Hebrews 10:12-14)
  5. That He ascended to the right hand of God to be Prince and a Saviour, a Great High Priest of His people and an Advocate with the Father for His People (Acts 5:31, Hebrews 4:14-16, 1 John 2:1)
  6. That the Holy Spirit was sent into the world subsequent to the ascension of our Saviour, to be to the church all that Christ was to those to whom He ministered in person while here on earth. He indwells all believers, empowering them to exhibit the character of Christ and to be His witnesses in the world. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgement to come. (John 14:16-17, 26, John 15:26-27, John 16:7-14, Acts 1:8, Galatians 5:22-26)
  7. That the Lord Jesus will personally return for His saints. Then shall follow the great tribulation and thereafter the Lord will come to set up His kingdom on the earth. (Matthew 24:29-31, John 14:3, 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18, Zechariah 14:3,4,9)
  8. That man was created sinless, but sinned in disobeying God, and the sentence of death was passed upon him, and through him to us. (Genesis 1:27, Genesis 3, Romans 5:12)
  9. That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
  10. That each person must be born again or never see the kingdom of God. (John 3:3)
  11. That there is only one Saviour whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4:12, John 14:6)
  12. That we have redemption through His blood by faith in His finished work at Calvary. That the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin. (Ephesians 1:7, 1 John 1:7)
  13. That all who die unsaved will stand before the Great White Throne to be judged for their sins, and will spend eternity in the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:10-15)
  14. In the personality and reality of the Adversary who is also called the Devil and Satan. (1 Peter 5:8, Revelation 20:2)
  15. That the church is His body, Christ being the risen, exalted Head of the Church which is composed of all true believers in Him. (Matthew 16:16-18, 1 Corinthians 12:12-28, Ephesians 1:22-23)
  16. In the eternal security of all who are in Christ. (John 10:27-30, 1 Peter 1:3-5)
  17. That “In the beginning, God created male and female in His own image” and God instituted marriage between one man and one woman to the exclusion of all others for a lifetime. Any sexual relationship outside of God’s plan for marriage (between one man and one woman) constitutes sin. (Genesis 2:20-25, Malachi 2:15-16, Romans 1:21-27, 1 Corinthians 6:12-7:40)
  18. That we should earnestly contend for the faith that was once delivered to the saints. (Jude verse 3)
