Statement Of Faith

About God

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit
(Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19).

About The Bible

We believe the Bible to be fully and uniquely inspired by the Holy
Spirit and that it is the only authoritative, inerrant and infallible Word of God.
(2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21).

About Jesus Christ

We believe in the eternity and deity of our Lord Jesus Christ. His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, inerrant teaching, substitutionary death and atonement, bodily resurrection,
ascension to the right hand of the Father and coming again
(Matthew 1:18-23; Luke 24:36-43; John 1:1-3; Acts 1:1-11; 2
Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 4:14-16).

About Mankind

We believe that man, created in the image of God, was tempted
by Satan and fell, and because of his consequent spiritual death,
requires regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation
(Genesis1:26-28; Genesis 3:1-24; John 3:3-5; Romans 5:12; Ephesians

About Salvation

We believe that salvation consists in the remission of sins, the imputation Christ’s righteousness and the gift of eternal life, received by faith alone, apart from works and that all true believers, once saved, are kept by God’s power, secure in Christ forever and assured of their salvation through the testimony of God’s Word
(Titus 3:5-7; John 6:37-40; 1 John 5:11-13).

About The Holy Spirit

We believe in the personal ministry of God the Holy Spirit,
who, at the moment of regeneration, baptizes, indwells and seals
each believer and by whose filling empowers for Christian life and
service (John 16:7-15; Acts 5:3-4; 1 Corinthians 12:13;
Ephesians 5:18ff).

About The Church

We believe that the one true Church, the Body and the Bride of
Christ, is composed of all true believers of this present age and is
organized on the basis of local, autonomous churches for the
purpose of worship, edification and world-wide Gospel witness
(Ephesians 1:22,23; 4:11-16; 5:25-32; Matthew 28:19,20).

About The Christian Life

We believe in consistent Christian character and conduct as an outgrowth and evidence of salvation and that our responsibility is to set apart our lives for the set purpose and will of God, that we may honor our Savior, encourage the faithful and testify to the lost
(Ephesians 2:10; 1 Corinthians 6:19,20; Titus 2:11-14).

About Ordinances

We believe that the ordinances of the Church, given by our Lord
Jesus Christ, are baptism of believers by immersion and the
Lord’s supper as celebrated by the bread and the cup
(Matthew28:19,20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26).

About Satan

We believe that Satan personally exists as the great adversary of
God and His people and shall consequently suffer the eternal horrors of the lake of fire
(Job 1:6,7; Revelation 12:1-10; Matthew 25:41).

About End Times

We believe in the imminent, visible and personal return of Christ to remove His Church from the earth before the tribulation and afterward to descend with the Church to establish His millennial kingdom upon the earth
(1 Thess 1:10; 4:16,17; Revelation 3:10; 19:11 – 20:6)

About Eternity

We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to
eternal life and the unsaved to judgement and everlasting
punishment (John 5:28,29; Matthew 25:41)
