We believe that the Bible is the fully-inspired and inerrant Word of God, and is the authority and standard for our faith and practice.
We believe in the one true God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are equal in essence and attributes, with each having a distinct role.
We believe that God the Father is an infinite Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of the Holy Spirit through the virgin Mary. While on earth He was both fully human and fully divine, being without sin. We believe He died on the cross for our sin, was buried and rose physically from the dead. He is now in Heaven, interceding on behalf of those who believe in Him.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is fully divine, present in the life of every believer. The Holy Spirit convicts of the need for salvation, and regenerates, sanctifies and glorifies those who believe in Jesus as Lord and Saviour.
We believe that humans were created in God’s image, but sinned against God, bringing physical, spiritual, and eternal death to all mankind. As a result all persons are sinners by nature and by choice.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the only way given by God for salvation. We are saved by faith in Jesus as Saviour, through the grace of God, not by any works that we can perform.
We believe that Jesus gave the church two ordinances, baptism and communion.
Baptism is for believers (those who have received the gift of eternal life), a symbol of the new life they have received in Christ. We practice baptism by immersion, following the example of Jesus’ baptism.
Communion, the celebration of the Lord’s Supper, is done as a remembrance of Jesus’ sacrificial death, until He comes again.
We believe that Jesus Christ will one day return in power and glory to judge the living and the dead. At that time all persons will be resurrected. Those who accepted Jesus Christ as Saviour will be given eternal life, and all who have rejected Jesus will be condemned to eternal punishment in Hell.
We believe that local churches are congregations of baptized believers, with Christ as their Head, who gather together for worship, fellowship, and service. The local church is our connection with the wider fellowship of the body of Christ, made up of all regenerated persons.
