STATEMENT OF BELIEF

We believe in:

  1. The Holy Scriptures as original given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct;

  2. The triune God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit;

  3. The deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His substitutionary atonement for sin, His bodily resurrection and His personal, visible return to earth to reign in righteousness and glory;

  4. The person of the Holy Spirit and His work of conviction, regeneration and sanctification, who indwells every believer, equipping them with gifts for service and witness.

  5. The necessity of new birth, in salvation by faith in Jesus Christ alone, and the importance of a life fully committed to the will of God in Christ.

  6. The church as one universal body of Jesus Christ, who is the head, called to be God's redeemed people.

  7. The call to all followers of Jesus Christ, to present the Gospel message in word and deed with clarity and enthusiasm wherever and whenever possible!
