Statement of Faith
 

We Believe that the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God, the infallible, all-sufficient rule for Christian faith and practice. (2 Tim.3:15-16; 2 Pet.1:21)

We Believe in the unity of the one true and living God Who is eternal, of infinite power, Who has also revealed Himself as one Being co-existing in three Persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

(Deut.6:4; Mark 12:29; Matt.28:19; 2 Cor.3:14)

We Believe in the virgin birth, sinless life, miraculous ministry, substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, triumphant ascension, abiding intercession and second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Isa.7:14; Matt.1:23; Heb.7:26; 1 Pet.2:22; Acts 2:22, 10:38, 2 Cor.5:21; Heb. 9:12;
 

 

Luke 24:39; 1 Cor.15:4; Acts 1:9; Eph.4:8-10; Rom.8:34; Heb.7:25; 1 Cor. 15:22-24,51-57; 1 Thess.4:13-18; Rev.20:1-6)

We Believe in salvation through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Who, according to the Scriptures, died for our sins, was buried and was raised from the dead on the third day, and that through His blood we have redemption. (Titus 2:11;3:5-7; Rom.10:8-15, 1 Cor. 15:3-4.) This experience is also known as the new birth, and is an instantaneous and complete operation of the Holy Spirit upon initial faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. (John 3:5-6; James 1:18; 1 Pet.1:23;1 John 5:1)

We Believe that all who have truly repented and believed in Christ as Lord and Saviour are commanded to be baptised by immersion in water. (Matt.28:19)

We Believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit, received subsequent to the new birth,the initial evidence of which is the speaking with other tongues
as the Spirit gives utterance. (Acts 2:4, 10:44-46, 11:14-16, 19:6; Isa.8:18)

 
We Believe in the operation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Lord Jesus Christ in the Church today. (1Cor.12:4-11, 28; Eph. 4:7-16)

We Believe in holiness of life and conduct in obedience to the command of God. (1 Pet.1:14-16; Heb.12:14; 1 Thess.5:23; 1 John 2:6)

We Believe that deliverance from sickness, by divine healing, is provided for in the atonement. (Isa.53:4-5; Matt.8:16-17;James 5:13-16)

We Believe that all who have truly repented and believe in Christ as Lord and Saviour should regularly participate in Breaking of Bread. (Luke 22:14-20; 1 Cor. 11:20-34)

We Believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the everlasting conscious bliss of all who truly believe in our Lord Jesus Christ and the everlasting conscious punishment of all whose names are not written in the book of life. (Dan. 12:2-3;John 5:28-29; 1 Cor. 15:22-24; Matt. 25:46; 2 Thess. 1:9; Rev. 20:10-15)

This Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our faith. The Bible itself is the sole and final source of all that we believe
