What We Believe

The Trinity

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The Father

We believe that God the Father is a spiritual being, omnipotent, omniscient, holy, righteous, loving and infinitely good; having life in Himself and giving life to all things.

The Son

We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man, the only begotten son of the Father.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus, in His ascension into Heaven, in His present life as our High Priest and Advocate and in His personal and imminent return.

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the supernatural manifestation of the Holy Spirit in and through the life of the believer; in His empowering and equipping for service and ministry and in His definite, yet progressive work of sanctification, commencing at the time of the new birth and continuing until the consummation of Salvation.

Sin and Salvation

We believe that God created man in His own Image; that man sinned and thereby incurred the penalty of death, physical and spiritual; that all human beings inherit a sinful nature which issues (in the case of those who reach moral responsibility) in actual transgression involving personal guilt.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins as a substitutionary sacrifice and that all who believe and trust in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.

We believe that all who repent of their sin, receive Jesus Christ, by faith, as Saviour and confess Him as Lord are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.

We believe in the resurrection of both the just and the unjust, in the eternal blessedness of the children of God, and in the eternal banishment of all others.

Scripture

We believe in the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments in their original writing as fully inspired of God and accept them as the supreme and final authority for faith and life.

The Church

We believe that the one true church is the whole company of those who have been redeemed by Jesus Christ and regenerated by the Holy spirit; that the new birth and personal confession of Christ are therefore essentials of church membership and that the church on earth is the organism through which God says and does what He desires for His world.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ appointed two ordinances – Baptism and the Lord’s Supper – to be observed as acts of obedience and as perpetual witnesses to the cardinal facts of the Christian faith.
