Statement of Faith

The Bible

We believe that the Bible, consisting of both the Old and New Testament, is the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings. It is the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of man and is the final authority for Christian faith and life.


We believe in one God, the Creator of all things, infinitely perfect in all His attributes. He exists eternally in the form of three persons, namely the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is fully God and fully human, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born to the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross as the sinless sacrifice for our sins, according to the Scriptures. He rose bodily from the dead and ascended into heaven where He currently intercedes for us at the right hand of the Majesty on high.

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit during this age is to promote the Lord Jesus Christ, to convict men of sin and to indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service. He is the “deposit” guaranteeing our life in the future kingdom. The Spirit baptizes individuals into God’s family, fills believers and produces Christ-like fruit and character in committed believers. He provides spiritual gifts to all believers that enable them to effectively serve God and one another.


We believe that man was created in the image of God, both male and female, but that Adam and Eve sinned, resulting in spiritual death and becoming subject to physical death. We believe that their sin brought sin and death to all future generations and made them subject to God’s judgment.


We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for salvation from God’s judgment for all who believe. Only those who believe in Jesus Christ are born again of the Spirit and thus become redeemed children of God. We do not believe that one can be saved by good works but that those works are evidence that one has been truly saved.

The Church

We believe that all people in the world who truly believe in the Lord Jesus Christ are members of the “universal” church and became members at the moment when they believed. The regular gatherings of believers in any particular locality make up what is called the “local” church or assembly. These assemblies have the right to govern themselves independently and are ultimately accountable to Jesus Christ.


We believe that baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the local church during this present age. They are not to be viewed as a means of salvation, but are carried out in obedience to the commands of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Return of Christ

We believe in the personal, imminent and pre-millennial coming of Jesus Christ and that this “blessed hope” has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer.

The Eternal State

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, and of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting, conscious punishment.
