WE BELIEVE

The Bible, containing sixty-six books as commonly received in the Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God. Hence, the Bible contains all things necessary to salvation so that whatsoever is not read therein, nor may be proved thereby, is not to be required of any man that it should be believed as an Article of Faith or be thought requisite or necessary to salvation. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Trinity

There is one God Who lives forever in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)

Divinity

In the divinity of Jesus Christ the Son, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His death for us on the cross, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father and His personal, physical return to rule the earth in power and love. (John 1:14-18; I Thessalonians 4:16-18)

Baptism

In baptism in water by immersion and in the Lord’s Supper as being the two sacraments instituted by Jesus Christ for His church. (Matthew 29:18-20; Mark 16:16; Matthew 26:26-29; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

Salvation

That all mankind is lost in sin and needs to turn from it and trust personally in the Saviour, Jesus Christ; all need to be born anew by the Holy Spirit’s power into God’s family. (Ephesians 2:1-10; John 3:5-7)

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit lives in us as believers and brings love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility and self-control into our lives. He works in and through us with His charismatic gifts. (Galatians 5:22-23; 1 Corinthians 12:7-11)

Resurrection

In the resurrection of every person: to eternal life for the believer and eternal judgment for the lost. (Matthew 25:31-46)

Fellowship

In unity for all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and seek community together. We want to become more like Him in every way, who is the head of His body, the Church. We are called to love Him and one another and are enabled to do this only as His life flows in and through us. (1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Matthew 22:37-40)

Marriage

That marriage is the basic human relationship between one man and one woman and, as such, is intended to reflect the relationship between Jesus Christ the Bridegroom and His bride the Church. (Genesis 2:18-25; Ephesians 5:25-32)

ATONEMENT

That the primary purpose for Jesus Christ’s life on earth was to fully reveal the love of God the Father, for the people of this world through His ministry, life, death on the cross and resurrection. (John 3:16; John 5:19-20)
