What we believe

  1. The Bible plus nothing, minus nothing, is the final authority for all matters of life and faith.
  2. We believe the Bible, the Old and New Testaments, are inspired by God as they were originally given.
  3. We believe God has revealed Himself as one God existing eternally in three persons, Father, Son & Holy Spirit; distinguishable but indivisible.
  4. We believe the Lord Jesus Christ, fully God and fully man, was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary and is the Saviour of humanity.
  5. We believe God created humanity in His image but humans rebelled through sin against God and became spiritually dead, totally depraved and eternally separated from God.
  6. We believe Jesus Christ died on the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice for the sins of humanity. He was buried and then resurrected on the third day appearing to His disciples.
  7. We believe Jesus Christ ascended into heaven, His exaltation as Heavenly High Priest and His personal, literal and bodily coming to earth again a second time.
  8. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells, guides and comforts believers through distributing gifts of the Spirit and leads believers to demonstrate the fruit of the Spirit.
  9. We believe gifts of the Spirit in operation are essential to the ministry of the church.
  10. We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of Jesus Christ crucified, by which forgiveness of sins is granted.
  11. We believe in the Spirit- filled life and the development of godly character in the fear of God, as believers serve and demonstrate devotion to God.
  12. We believe the company of the called- out ones, the church, is the community where all believers join together in family to pursue the work of the ministry of Jesus Christ.
  13. We believe in water baptism by immersion as a confession by the believer in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and an expression of faith and obedience to His command.
  14. We believe in the breaking of bread commonly called communion or the Lord’s Supper where bread and the cup are the symbols of celebrating and remembering Jesus’ sacrifice.
  15. We believe in eternal life for the believer and eternal punishment for the unbeliever who has rejected the sacrifice of Jesus Christ as Saviour.
