STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, only infallible authoritative Word of God, revealing the love of God to the world.

(1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; John 3:16)

 

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

(Matthew 28:19; John 10:30; Ephesians 4:4-6)

 

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return to power and glory.

(Matthew 1:23; John 1:1-4 and 1:29; Acts 1:11 and 2:22-24; Romans 8:34; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 1:1-4 and 4:15)

 

We believe that, for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. We believe that all men everywhere are lost and face the judgment of God, that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that for the salvation of lost and sinful man repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ results in regeneration by the Holy Spirit. Furthermore, we believe that God will reward the righteous with eternal life in heaven, and that He will banish the unrighteous to everlasting punishment in hell.

(Luke 24:46-47; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23; 2 Corinthians 5:10-11; Ephesians 1:7 and 2:8-9; Titus 3:4-7)

 

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. 

(John 3:5-8; Acts 1:8 and 4:31; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Galatians 5:16-18; Ephesians 6:12; Colossians 2:6-10)

 

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.

(1 Corinthians 12:12, 27; Ephesians 1:22-23)

 

We believe that the ministry of evangelism (sharing and proclaiming the message of salvation only possible by grace through faith in Jesus Christ) and discipleship (helping followers of Christ grow up into maturity in Christ) is a responsibility of all followers of Jesus Christ.

(Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Romans 10:9-15; 1 Peter 3:15)
