Statement of faith

What we believe

We believe there is one God, eternally existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is God the Son, that He was born of a virgin, that believers are redeemed by His substitutionary death through His shed blood, that He bodily resurrected, and ascended into Heaven, and that He will come again in power and great glory. Furthermore, because of Christ’s full but sinless humanity, we believe He has experienced and overcome all temptations that we face. Because of this, God is approachable through Jesus Christ and is concerned with our condition and human struggles.

We believe the Bible, as originally given, to be the revealed, authoritative Word of God without error.

We believe God originally created man in His own image, and free from sin; but through the temptation of Satan, man disobeyed God, and fell from his original holiness and righteousness. Because of this all mankind inherits a corrupt nature and is under God’s condemnation.

We believe that people can be removed from the eternal condemnation of sin only through a personal decision to trust in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross as their substitutionary payment for their sins. We hold this event to be a personal experience rather than a religious or doctrinal supposition.

We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all believers empowering them to live a godly life of obedience as they grow toward Christian maturity in the process called sanctification.

We believe that the Holy Spirit unites all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and that together they form one body – The Church. Furthermore we believe that The Church is under the leadership of Jesus Christ and that His leadership will be evident through the harmony and love within The Church.

We believe it is the duty of all believers to glorify God in thought, word and deed.
