We believe in one God – eternally existing in Three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; these Three being commonly known as the Trinity.
We believe that the Bible, in its entirety, is the divine revelation of God, and we submit to its authority, acknowledging it to be inerrant, and inspired and is our guide for all matters of faith and practice.
We believe that the Triune God created the world and all things in it; calling them into existence through His Word. We believe that He planned all things by His wisdom and that He controls all things through His sovereign power, for His own glory.
We believe that God created Man in His own image and that Man was called to manifest God to the world through obedience to God’s commandments. We believe that Man entered into a state of moral corruption through sin and that subsequently, he has become estranged from His Creator and has come under His wrath and condemnation. We believe that through sin, mankind became spiritually dead and therefore unable to please God or merit salvation.
We believe that because of a profound love for His creation, that God eternally purposed redemption in the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe in the historical incarnation (virgin birth) of God in the Person of Jesus of Nazareth. We confess Jesus Christ to be the Messiah of Old Testament prophecy, being at the same time, fully God and fully Man. We believe that through His substitutionary, atoning death on the Cross and His bodily resurrection, that He has provided the meritorious basis of our justification, which by God’s grace we receive by faith alone.
We believe and practice two ordinances: 1. Water Baptism by immersion, after repentance and receiving Christ’s gift of salvation. 2. Holy Communion, as a symbolic remembrance of Christ’s sufferings and our identification with Him. We believe that proceeding from the Father and the Son, the Holy Spirit indwells the believers, effecting their regeneration and operating in their sanctification. The same Holy Spirit has been given to the People of God with His gifts and graces to empower them for service. We believe that the Church is called to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ under the power of the Holy Spirit and under the authority of Holy Scripture, exercising discipline, administering the sacraments, making disciples of all nations. We believe that the Church consists of all people of all time, who have received the free gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
We believe that Christ will return personally and bodily to consummate His kingdom. We believe there will be a final judgment for those who have not been saved, when they will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal punishment. We believe that God will create a new heaven and a new earth and that we will live with Him forever in a state of righteous perfection.
