What We Believe
Our Statement Of Faith
WE BELIEVE - the Holy Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the divinely inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, and the final
authority for all Christian faith and life (2 Timothy 3: 16-17; 2 Peter 1:21).
WE BELIEVE - in one God, infinite, perfect and eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:16-17; 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14).
WE BELIEVE - in the virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, His unqualified deity, His sinless humanity, the eternal all-sufficiency of His atoning death, His bodily resurrection and His ascension to the Father’s right hand (1 Corinthians 15:3-4; John 1:1, 20, 24-29; Hebrews 4:15; 1 Timothy 2:5; Revelation 20: 1-6).
WE BELIEVE - that Justification is a judicial act of God on the believer’s behalf solely through faith in Christ’s death and resurrection (Romans 3:24, 26; 4: 18-25; 5:1; 1 Corinthians 6:11; Galatians 3:24).
WE BELIEVE - that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is under condemnation, and that it is only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit that salvation can be obtained (Genesis 1:26, 27; 2:17; 3:1-13; John 14:6: Acts 4:12; 1 Timothy 2:5-6).
WE BELIEVE - that Water Baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during the present age (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; 1 Corinthians 11:17-34).
WE BELIEVE - that the Christian life involves discipleship, obedience to the Word of God, holiness, witness and service through the power of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 1:8; 2:38; 2 Corinthians 6:14-18; 7:1).
WE BELIEVE - in the Baptism with the Holy Spirit with the initial physical evidence of speaking in other tongues (Acts 2:4; 4:31; 10:46; 1 Corinthians 12: 13-14; Ephesians 5:18).
WE BELIEVE - in the demonstration of the gifts of the Spirit, and the manifestation of the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23).
WE BELIEVE - in the divine healing of the human body as provided for in the atonement, which is a privilege of all believers (Isaiah 53:4, 5; James 5:14, 15).
WE BELIEVE - in Heaven as the eternal inheritance of the believers, and in Hell and the Lake of Fire as the place of eternal doom for the devil, his angels and all unbelievers (John 14:1-3; Revelation 20:10-15; 21:1-6).
WE BELIEVE - that the true Church consists of all who through faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:22, 23; 2:22; 4:3-6).
WE BELIEVE - in and practice the five-fold Ministries and the supporting Ministries to be operational in the Church (Ephesians 4:11-13).
