Statement of Faith

We believe:

  • all Scripture, both Old and New Testaments, was given by inspiration of God as the writers were moved by the Holy Spirit to write the very words of God, and that these Scriptures are the only rule of faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)

  • in the one true God who has revealed Himself as existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; distinguishable but indivisible (Matthew 28:10; Luke 3:21-22)

  • the human race was originally created by God in His image, until sin entered by disobedience and rebellion and left humanity totally incapable of saving itself (Romans 5:12; Genesis 1:27)

  • that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, very God and very man (Luke 1:26-35; John 1:1, 14, 18; Isaiah 7:14;Isaiah 9:6)

  • Christ, our Saviour, died for our sins, was buried and rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and appeared to His disciples ( I Corinthians 15:1-8; Romans 4:25)

  • in the bodily ascension of Jesus to heaven, his exaltation as Lord to the right hand of the Father, and his literal, physical return the second time for the Church (John 14:2-3; I Thessalonians 4:13-18)

  • in the salvation of sinners by grace through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of Christ upon the cross by which we obtain the remission of sins through His shed blood ( Ephesians 2:;8-9; Hebrews 9:12-14; Romans 5:11)

  • the church is the body of Christ and that Christ gave to the church apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers (Ephesians 4:11-13)
