What We Believe

  • We Believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired and infallible Word of God, the final authority for the lives of believers in every culture and age and their rule of faith and practice. They are to be interpreted by the Holy Ghost according to their context and purpose, and in reverent obedience to the Living Word, Who speaks through them in the power of the Spirit.

  • We Believe that there is one living and true God, Who eternally exists in three distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; equal in power and glory; each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of Deity and the characteristics of personality.

  • We Believe that God the Father has revealed Himself to be perfect in love, holiness and righteousness; that He created all, upholds all and governs all; and He so loved the world, even in the midst of its fallenness and sin, that He gave His only Son for its redemption. Like a father who runs to welcome the prodigal home, Father God is trustworthy and faithful to His children and all things are possible for those who believe in Him.

  • We Believe that Jesus Christ is God, the Living Word, and is eternally preexistent and co-equal with God the Father; that He became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. Therefore, He is perfect Deity and true humanity united in one Person forever. He lived a sinless life and voluntarily atoned for the sins of men by dying on the cross as their substitute, thus satisfying divine justice and accomplishing salvation for all who trust in Him alone. He rose from the dead in the same body, though glorified, in which He lived and died. He ascended bodily into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God the Father, where He, the only Mediator between God and man, continually makes intercession for His own. We believe in the literal, physical return of the Lord Jesus Christ to take authority and rule on earth, and to judge the living and the dead.

  • We Believe that the Holy Ghost is co-equal and co-eternal with the Father and the Son; that He was active in the creation of all things; that He has come into the world to reveal and glorify Christ; that He convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment; and that He regenerates, sanctifies, baptizes, indwells, seals, anoints, illumines, guides and bestows His gifts upon all believers. His fullness, power and holiness are appropriated in the believer's life through faith and obedience.

  • We Believe that man (male and female) was originally created in the image and likeness of God. He was created to reflect the glory of God and represent Him on this earth. He was tempted by the devil and fell through disobedience to God. All men are born with a sinful nature and are separated from the life of God. They can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ.

  • We Believe that salvation is by God's grace and is a gift of God received by faith alone, apart from all good works and merit, and includes the forgiveness of sins, the imputation of the righteousness of Jesus Christ and the gift of eternal life. We believe that those who receive Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord are miraculously born again by the Holy Ghost and become children of God and partakers of His divine nature. We are assured and know that all things are working together and are fitting into a plan for good to and for those who love God and are called according to His design and purpose. God has planned from the beginning for man to be molded into the image of His Son, Jesus, and share inwardly His likeness; therefore, man can only find his true identity and destiny in the Lord Jesus Christ.

  • We Believe in the universal Church, the living spiritual body of which Jesus Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members, and in the unity of all believers in Christ with the evidence of that unity being shown by how we love one another. The Church has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the gospel to all nations and making disciples through the equipping of the saints.

  • We Believe in the reality and personality of Satan who coordinates and motivates opposition towards God, and in the real existence of both angels and demons.

  • We Believe in the bodily resurrection of the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life, the other to everlasting damnation.
