STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that they only constitute the Divine Rule of Christian faith and practice. 

We believe there is only one God, who is infinitely perfect, the Creator, Preserver and Governor of all things, and who is the only proper Object of Worship.         

We believe there are three persons in the Godhead: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, undivided in essence, and co-equal in power and glory.    

We believe that Jesus Christ was God made manifest in the flesh, truly and properly God, and truly and properly man, and that He, by His suffering and death, made atonement for sin and that, by His resurrection, there is eternal life for all who believe.    

We believe that since the fall of our first parents, man is entirely unable, in his own strength, to find salvation and reconciliation with God, and that he is wholly dependent upon God’s grace and mercy.                                                       

We believe that salvation, by God’s grace, depends upon repentance, faith in God, cleansing by the shed blood of Jesus, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit.   

We believe that baptism in water is a personal and dynamic meeting with God, and a sign of the believer’s death, burial and resurrection in Jesus Christ.  

We believe it is the privilege of all believers, in response to the command of God’s Word, to receive the power of the Holy Spirit to live holy and victorious lives, and that the Holy Spirit operates through gifts, ministries and manifestations, to glorify Jesus, through His Body, to the world.      

We believe that Jesus Christ, at the time of His ascension into Heaven, where He now sits at the right hand of the Father, gifted the Church with living ministry expressions of Himself, through apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, for the building up of the Body of Christ, and the equipping of the believers to the work of service.   

We believe that neither ritual, tradition, ceremony nor rite can replace conversion, relationship with God, or true worship, and that nothing less than the Lordship of Christ upon a life, is the mark of a Christian.              

We believe in the continuance of the Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements of bread and the fruit of the vine, as instituted by Jesus with His disciples, so that we may truly discern the Body of Christ in its totality, unity and authority, and that this celebration stands as a memorial of Christ’s suffering and death, and as a prophecy of His coming and, as such, is commanded to all His followers until that Day.   

We believe in the physical, triumphant return of Jesus Christ, to an overcoming and glorious Church.
