What We Believe

The Scriptures

... the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are verbally insipred by God; inerrant in the originals; supreme in authority for faith and life.

The Godhead

...that God exists eternally in three equal persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit

Of Christ

...that the Son became truly man in Jesus Christ through the virgin birth, lived a sinless life, died as a substitute for lost mankind and rose bodily from the grave; that He is now an advocate for His children and He will return visibly to set up His kingdom

Of the Holy Spirit

...that the Holy Spirit is God and that He convicts the lost, regenerates, seals and sactifies believers; that He baptizes every believer at the moment of salvation into the Body of Christ and that He intercedes for them before the Father

Man

..that man was created in the image of God but he fell; that all are now born with a sinful nature which cannot please God by any works whatsoever; that it is only through faith in Christ as Saviour that a person can be saved and become a child of God secure in Christ eternally; that eternal separation from God awaits the lost and unending joy in God's presence is prepared for the redeemed.
