Statement of Faith
The Scriptures of the Old and New Testament were given by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and that only they constitute the divine rule of Christian faith and practice.
There is only one God, infinitely perfect, the Creator, Preserver and Governor of all things; and that there are three Persons in the Godhead: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, co-equal in power and glory.
Jesus Christ was God made manifest in the flesh – truly and properly man – and that He, by His suffering and death, made atonement for sin, so that “whoever believes may in Him have eternal life.”
Salvation, by the grace of God, depends on repentance, faith in God, cleansing by the shed blood of Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
Baptism in water is a sign of personal death, burial and resurrection in Christ, and is a public testimony of repentance and new life in the Lord Jesus.
It is the privilege of all believers in response to the command of God’s Word, to receive the power of the Holy Spirit, and to live holy and victorious lives.
The Holy Spirit operates through gifts and manifestations to glorify Jesus through His Body to the world.
Jesus, at the time of His ascension into Heaven, where He now sits at the right hand of the Father, gifted the church with living ministry expressions of Himself through apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, for the building up of the Body of Christ and the equipping of the believers for the work of service.
Neither ritual, nor tradition, nor ceremony, nor rite can replace true conversion and relationship with God, and that nothing less than the Lordship of Christ upon a life is the mark of a Christian.
In the ordinance of The Lord’s Supper, consisting in the elements of the bread and the fruit of the vine, as instituted by Jesus with His disciples. The Lord’s Supper stands as a memorial of His suffering and death and as a prophecy of His coming, and its participation is commanded to all believers until that day.
In the Second Coming of Christ to a victorious, effective church.
It is the commission of the Church to go into the whole world to preach the Gospel and establish the Kingdom of God, knowing that this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached to the whole world for a witness to all nations, and then shall the end come.
In the judgment of God, the eternal punishment of the wicked and the everlasting happiness of the righteous.
