- We believe in the Holy Scriptures, the Old and New Testament, as the very Word of God,
inspired by God in all parts and therefore wholly without error as originally given of God. They
are the final and supreme authority. (Matt. 5:18; II Tim. 3:16-17; II Peter 1:21).
- We believe in the One Triune God, who is personal, spirit, and sovereign; perfect, infinite and
eternal in His being, self-existent, holy, love, wisdom and power; absolutely separate and above
the world as its Creator and yet everywhere present in the world as the upholder of all things.
(Gen. 1:1; Psa. 90:2; Psa. 139:1-16; John 4:24; Col. 1:15-17).
- We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is eternal and was conceived by the Holy Spirit
and born a man by the virgin birth thus to continue forever as both true God and true man. He
made full atonement for our sins through His vicarious suffering and death on the cross; He
rose triumphantly from the grave the third day, ascended into heaven, and is now at the right
hand of God interceding on our behalf. (Matt. 1:18-25; Isa. 53:4-6; Heb. 4:14-16).
- We believe that the Holy Spirit, the third person in the Godhead, was active in creation,
revelation, and redemption. In this age of grace He convicts the world of sin, regenerates those
who believe, and indwells, baptizes, seals, empowers, guides, teaches, and gives spiritual gifts
to believers. (Gen. 1:2; Acts 5:3-4; John 16:8-11; I Cor. 6:19, 12:13; Eph. 4:30)
- We believe that man in his natural state is degenerate and in need of a divine Redeemer.
- We believe that salvation is a free gift of God’s grace, offered to us on the basis of Christ’s
substitutionary death on the cross. It is received by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and is in no
way obtained by human effort. This salvation results in eternal life, a new nature, right standing
before God, Sonship in the family of God, and provision for sanctification and victory over the
power of sin. (John 1:12-13, 3:3-8; Rom. 3:24; Gal. 3:26, 5:22-23; Eph. 2:8-9)
- We believe baptism is to be administered on the basis of faith in Jesus Christ alone. (Acts
- We believe the Lord’s Supper, instituted by Christ, is to be observed regularly by all believers.
(1 Cor. 11:23ff.)
- We believe that the Church is a fellowship of true believers in Jesus Christ. The Lord has called
pastor-teachers, elders, deacons, and other servants of God to build up His church. (Eph. 2:19ff;
- We believe that marriage constitutes a bond of life-time commitment between one man and one woman and that it is the only legitimate, honourable and holy estate instituted by God. It was ordained of God as the foundation and bond of family life for mutual help and comfort of husband and wife, and for the welfare of the state. (Genesis 2:23-24; Proverbs 18:22; Hebrews 13:4; I Corninthians 7:10, 11; Romans 1:24-32.)
- We believe that civil government is a divinely instituted authority which should be respected
and submitted to by all; that it is a minister of God for the good of them that do well and
minister of God for the punishment of evil-doers. (Romans 1)
- We believe in the personal, visible, imminent return of Jesus Christ. (Matt. 24:21-31; John 14:3; Acts 1:11; I Thess. 4:13-17; Rev. 19:11-16, 20:1-15).
- We believe that believers will inherit The Kingdom for eternal life and they will enjoy a future life in the presence of Christ (Matthew 25:31-40). Unbelievers will be judged according to their works at the Great White Throne and subsequently cast into the lake of fire (Matthew 25:41-46; Rev. 20:11-15, 22:12).
