Statement of Faith

  1. We believe in God the Father Almighty from Whom are all things and we exist for Him. We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten of the Father, through Whom are all things, and we exist through Him. We believe in the one Holy Spirit by Whom are indwelled, regenerated and renewed, gifted and empowered for the work of service, taught, convicted, guided and sealed for the Day of Redemption.
  2. We believe that Jesus Christ, the Word of God, became flesh through a virgin birth, lived a sinless life, was rejected persecuted and crucified unto death. We believe that He died as a substitute for all humankind, paying the full price for all sin. We believe that He was buried and that He was raised from the dead on the third day and seen by many witnesses. We believe that He was taken to heaven where He lives to make intercession on behalf of God's Holy people, where He is also preparing a place for those who love Him, and from where He will come to judge the living and the dead.
  3. We believe that if one believes in their heart that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead and confesses with their mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, that one will be saved. We believe that one is justified before God by faith in Jesus Christ alone and God in His Grace alone extends forgiveness and eternal life to whosoever will believe on the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  4. We believe that Jesus, on the Day known only to the Father, will come from heaven to earth to take to Himself, all who have put their faith in Him. The dead in Christ will be raised imperishable and those who live and believe, will be changed, being clothed with immortality and will be caught up to meet Him in the air. We believe that He will physically reign on the earth for a thousand years. We believe that the earth will then be destroyed and a new heaven and a new earth created. We believe that we shall live with God in a New Jerusalem on the new earth and that we shall never die. God Himself is the reward and inheritance of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ.
  5. We believe that all those who reject Jesus Christ and who will not accept His Word will be eternally damned in Hell. When Christ returns, those who have died will hear His voice and rise to be condemned. Those who are alive at His coming will be killed, judged and cast into the Lake of Fire for eternity.
  6. We believe that the Bible (66 books) is the inspired Word of God, inerrant in its original autographs and faithfully transmitted to us. Our Statement of Faith is derived from it and it is the final rule of faith and practice. The Bible is the Word of God Inscripturate. All of the Bible is profitable for teaching, reproof and discipline in right living that the man and woman of God might be competent and equipped for every good work.
  7. We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ on the earth, is composed of all those who have truly believed on Jesus and have been born of His Spirit and contains within it the fullness of Jesus Christ.
  8. We believe that all Christians are enjoined by Jesus Christ to follow Him in water baptism (immersion) and that all Christians should gather regularly for the Lord's Supper. That these are not sacraments but Divinely instituted participatory ordinances by which we make public proclamation of our faith and repentance and by which we declare the death of our Lord Jesus Christ until He comes.
