Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible, both Old and New testaments, is the Word of God.  It is infallible, inspired and to submit to Jesus as Lord is to submit to the absolute authority of the Bible.

We believe in one eternal God, infinite and personal; our Creator as well as our Redeemer, the Almighty, the Father.  God has revealed Himself to us as three eternal Persons, the Father, the Son (Jesus) and the Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus Christ is our Creator, God, who came to earth in the flesh, born of a virgin - truly man, truly God, but unmixed.  Jesus was crucified as a sacrifice for our sins and after totally satisfying the just judgement of God against us as sinners, He was raised from the dead, bodily, ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of God.  Jesus is the only true and living way to God.

We believe in the fall of man as recorded in Genesis 3.  Although man is created in the image of God, and to this day he bears that image, the fall has resulted in the absolute sinfulness and total depravity of man. We believe Romans 3:10ff :- there is none righteous, no not one; and   there is none who does good, no not one and   there is none who seeks after God. Man can only be saved by turning away from his sin and turning to God.  Man needs to believe and acknowledge the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Only then will God justify us freely by His grace.

We believe that water baptism is the true confession of repentance from dead works.  It joins us to Jesus in His death and resurrection.  It is the appeal to God for a good conscience, and salvation from this age.

We believe God has called us to a holy life by the power of the Spirit and the means of grace:- prayer, the Word, fellowship, and worship.

We believe that we receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon us in the baptism of the Spirit - power to witness and have supernatural gifts to edify one another and the lost.

We believe in the communion as instuted by Jesus; the elements representing the Body of Christ broken for our healing and the Blood of Jesus shed for the remission of our sins.

We believe in the soon coming of our Lord Jesus, and our gathering together unto Him, the end of this age, the resurrection of all, saved and lost.  The saved shall receive rewards and the lost shall be expelled to receive eternal punishments.
