What we Believe: Statement of Faith

 

 

  • We believe the Old and New Testament Scriptures are inspired by God; are inerrant in the original writings; and are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.

  • We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy  Spirit; and, that God is Sovereign in all things.

  • We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin  Mary; and is true God and true man.

  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is the person of the Godhead who convicts the world  of sin; who permanently indwells the believer, guides into truth, and sanctifies and  gives assurance of eternal salvation.

  • We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned, and thereby  incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death which is separation from  God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and in the case of those  who reach moral responsibility become sinners in thought, word and deed.

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

  • We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into  heaven, and in His present life there for us, as High Priest and Advocate.

  • We believe in the personal and imminent return of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus  Christ.

  • We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again by the  Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.

  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting  blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.

  • We believe that there are two ordinances given to the Church by Jesus Christ:
    • Baptism, which shall be administered to believers in Christ confessing their own  faith in Him and shall be administered by immersion in water.
    • the Lord’s supper, which is the memorial of the sacrifice of the body and blood of  Jesus Christ and is available to all believers each Lord’s day, or on other suitable  occasions.

  • We believe that the devil is a real and active being who resists, hinders and tempts humankind.
