We Believe in ...

GOD

We believe that there is one GOD, Creator and Sustainer of all things, eternally existent in three persons: GOD the Father, GOD the Son, and GOD the Holy Spirit.

 

The Deity of Our Lord Jesus Christ

We believe in the deity of Our Lord Jesus Christ – that he was born of the virgin Mary and lived a sinless life. He suffered and died for all men as an atoning sacrifice, bodily resurrected from the dead and ascended to the right hand of God the father (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). He will one day return to judge the living and the dead (Hebrews 9:27-28).

 

The Bible

We believe the Scriptures both Old and New Testament are inspired by GOD, and are the revelation of GOD to all men. They are the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21.

 

Salvation

We believe that Jesus Christ provides the only way for reconciliation with God and salvation of all who believe, and commit themselves to following the Lord in a life of obedience (Romans 10:9-11 & 13).

 

Water Baptism

We believe that baptism, by immersion in water, is commanded by the Scriptures. All who repent and believe in Christ as Saviour and Lord are to be baptized. (Matthew 28:19).

Baptism of the Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth and that all Christians are entitled to and should ardently expect and seek the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as promised by God the Father. This gift from God endows the believer with power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry (Acts 1:4-8).

 

Deliverance

We believe deliverance from sickness and oppression is provided in the atonement and is the privilege of all believers (Matthew 8:16-17).

 

Man

We believe that man is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil; and that this can be remedied only by the grace of God.

 

The Mission

We believe that the mission of God is the redemption of people from every nation, tribe and language through the gospel of Jesus Christ and that “making disciples that make disciples” is the mission of the Church, given by Christ.
