Statement of Faith

 We believe:
  • In the unchanging and infallible word of God as laid down in the Bible – which we consider to be the truth for all mankind
    and for all time and sufficient for all matters of faith and conduct.
  • That there is one eternal God in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • In the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, atoning death, bodily resurrection, and ascension to the right hand of the Father
    and in His return in glory and power
  • In the good purposes of God exemplified in the creation order, that humankind is made in the image of God but that humankind’s sin has affected every area of life.
  • That faith in Jesus involves personal repentance and trusting in him for forgiveness of sins.
  • That personal regeneration by the Holy Spirit is necessary for the salvation of sinful humankind and for believers to live godly lives.
  • In the resurrection of the saved and the lost, the saved to eternal life and the lost to eternal damnation.
  • That prayer is powerful, and that God the Holy Spirit works through prayer to change hearts and minds so the will of God is done on earth as in heaven.
  • That the church as the body of Christ is called to fulfil the Great Commission, to strive for the unity of the Holy Spirit and to live out the truth of the Gospel in words and in practical service.
  • That Christian believers should be filled with grace and forgive others and while judging actions, should not judge non-believers personally.
  • In the free expression of the Christian faith in words and conduct and that people are free to accept God or reject him.
  • It is permissible for Christians to disobey governing authorities when they are commanded to do what God forbids in his Word or are prevented from doing what God commands in his Word.
Thus says the Lord, “Stand by the roads and look; ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is;
then walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.   
But they said, ‘We will not walk in it!’   
(Jeremiah 6:16).
