About Us

Beliefs

WE BELIEVE IN:

1. The divine inspiration of Holy Scripture and its consequent entire trustworthiness and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

2. One true and living God, eternally existent in three persons, FATHER, SON and HOLY SPIRIT.

The heavenly FATHER, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love, who in His mercy has reconciled the world to Himself in Jesus Christ, who hears and answers prayer, and saves from sin and condemnation all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

The Lord Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten SON; God manifest in the flesh; His virgin birth; His sinless life; His miracles; His substitutionary atoning death; His bodily resurrection; His ascension; His present intercessory work; and His personal return in power and glory.

The HOLY SPIRIT given without rite or invocation to all who believe in Christ through the Gospel, and by Whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a holy life and to witness and work for the Lord.

3. The universal sin nature of man and his consequent need for salvation through the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ and the regeneration of the Holy Spirit by faith apart from works.

4. The unity and the common priesthood of all true believers who together form the one universal Church, the Body of which Christ is the Head.

5. The autonomy of the local Church consisting of born-again believers who have followed the biblical injunction of baptism by immersion upon the confession of faith in Jesus Christ as personal Saviour and Lord.

6. The practice of the Lord’s Supper, as instituted by Jesus Christ Himself, commemorating His suffering and death on the cross for our sins.

7. Religious liberty, rooted in Scripture, is the inalienable right of all individuals to exercise freedom of conscience with ultimate responsibility to God. Church and State exist by the will of God. Each has distinct concerns and responsibilities, free from control by the other. Christians respect the authority of, and pray for, all levels of government, and obey in matters not contrary to Scripture.

8. The family unit defined in Holy Scripture as the God-given and holy union between two people of the opposite sex.

9. The resurrection of both the saved and the lost, to be judged by Jesus Christ in righteousness; and the unrighteous to suffer eternal punishment along with the devil and his angels, and the righteous to enjoy eternal life with God.
